Hi all,I have never worn a wig or a topper but I am considering it. I have hair loss on the top and a widening part. I have a couple of questions about Toppers:1) Are they cooler than normal wigs?2)…Continue
I wear rene of paris or noriko, they do frizz up at the ends after a couple of months especially the longer wigs which i wear but to get a few more months out of them i have started to steam them with a handheld garmet steamer which i bought for really cheap and it really has helped prolong the wear, I watched videos on youtube showing you how to do it , i'm doing that from now on so i only have to purchase a new wig every 5-6 months instead of every 2-3 months so can save money as it can get very expensive as mine cost around £200 and that is a lot of money when your on a low budget.
Hi There! What your favorite human hair brand? I've had several different ones and want to see what everyone else is trying. :) And yes, I know there are a lot of decent synthetic ones but I'm most interested in human hair.
I have worn synthetic wigs since 1982 and all I can say is that they don't last longer than 3-4 months .It does depend on how much you use it but my use is about 10-12 hours per day. If doing sport and other sweat promoting activities..it will frizz quicker.
Now there is a new type of synthetic hair that seems to be very good. I have bought one which I am using now and then but so far it has lasted 4 months so I just have to wait and see how long it will last for. It is very real hair look alike and feels very light a comfortable. It does cost a bit more aswell.
I'll let you know how it is going...
Hi Aimee - can I ask what brand of synthetic wigs you get? I've got a Rene of Paris one that's frizzing already after only a couple of months (and it gets worn a lot less than 6 hrs a day). Thx.
I'm looking to purchase my first wig. When I've visted two wig shops, they tell me synthetic wigs should last 1 - 1-1/2 years, but looking at a couple websites selling same brand wigs, they are saying that they last 3 - 6 mos. Anyone out there have anything idea what the deal is?
I try to remember a floppy hat in my purse for exactly that reason. At least it keeps your part in place which is awkward to fix. Also, sunglasses can "catch" some of the hair at your temples, holding it down, so that you don't see the cap in that area.
Anyone have any words of wisdom about what to do with wearing a wig in the wind? One step out the front door, and the nicely styled wig I spent time with in the bathroom in front of the mirror, is now "everywhere". And trust me, it looks way worse than natural hair blowing in the wind.
