A wig is an artificial covering of hair for all or most of the head, of either synthetic or natural hair, worn to be stylish or more attractive.

It is also a similar head covering, worn in one’s official capacity, as part of a costume, disguise, etc. A toupee or hairpiece is also described as a wig.

The History of Wigs

                     

The earliest recorded evidence of wigs was in ancient Egypt. The Egyptians used to shave their heads to prevent lice infestation….a most prevalent occurrence of their time. It seems, however, that although they shaved their heads they would have preferred to have hair as they began wearing wigs, in part to shield their heads them from the scorching Egyptian sun.

Other nations whose citizens wore wigs were the Greeks, Romans, Assyrians, and the Phoenicians. The Romans, in particular, wore wigs which were often made with hair from slaves. During the Roman Empire wealthy Roman women often wore elaborate wigs to greatly increase the volume and effect of the hairstyle.

Wigs Today

Today wigs are a regular accessory that many women will not do without. Wigs nowadays serve many useful purposes which includes but are not limited to: for convenience, to change up ones look, for hair loss. For many women, a few wigs of various styles, colours and lengths is a must.

There are many different types of wigs that for now will be divided into two categories – natural and synthetic. Synthetic wigs are made from man made materials, while natural wigs are made from human hair of different grades and quality. We will look at the differences between lace front wigs, 360 wigs and full lace wigs.

Lace Wigs

First it is wise to note that a lace wig has some or all parts of its base or cap made from lace which allows the wig to be parted and give the appearance of scalp showing. This cause the wig to look less “wiggy” and much more like your natural hair from roots to tips.

The lace wig is usually attached with the assistance of wig glues and tapes, which are applied to the front hairline area. The usual procedure for application is to clean the area with isopropyl alcohol and apply the glue and allow it to dry clear. This process is done three times then the lace portion of the wig is attached to the area where the glue has been applied on the hairline. It seems that the lace basically melts into the glue creating not only a tight bond which keeps the lace wig in place on the head but creates an undetectable hairline that is almost impossible to see.

Some lace wigs also come with “baby hair” or if not, the stylist can pluck the edged and create his or her own baby hair which can be customized and styled to give an even more realistic hairline. Once applied the lace or lace front wig can stay in place for weeks at a time and is maintained with shampoo and conditioners and other hair products.

Wig Density

The density (how thick the hair is) of a lace wig is measured as a percentage. The higher the percentage, the thicker the hair on the wig is. The most popular density for a wig is 130% or 150%. A wig with a density of 180% is very thick and much more expensive. As with hair extensions, the texture of wigs can be straight, loose wave, natural wave or curly

Lace Front Wigs

Lace front wigs can be further divided into two categories. The lace front and the lace frontal wigs. The lace front wig has a 4×4” lace portion at the top which allows side and middle partings. This piece of lace can be free part, middle part of three parts. Lace frontal wigs have a similar appearance to full lace wigs. The lace frontal
are made with lace along the front of the wig from temple to temple usually a 13×4” lace. This natural looking hairline gives the appearance that hair is growing from your own scalp. It may or may not have baby hairs along the hairline which can be customized to allow the wig to look even more like your real hair. There is also a 360 frontal.

The lace at the front of the wig can be styled and parted as the wearer wants. The rest of the lace front wig is made of strong material on which the wefts are sewn. The wig is secure and easy to wear. Due to the fact that they are very stretchy, they are extremely comfortable. Lace wigs today can be worn while engaging in activities such as swimming and exercising. Because of this they are quite a popular alternative for anyone looking to avoid adding hair to the scalp via surgical methods. Celebrities and models worldwide have been wearing full lace wigs and can attest to their true to life seamless and undetectable look. They are comfortable and your hair can breathe under the lace. Lace front wigs are more common, maybe because they are less expensive than full lace wigs.

Full Lace Wigs

Full lace wigs are made by 100% hand-tying and crocheting every hair strand onto the sheer lace. Full lace human hair wigs can have lace all around the wig. When installing, the extra lace is cut away from around the hairline before attaching. You will be cutting a hairline around your entire head. They are comfortable, durable and lightweight….technically, the best wigs you can get. Full lace wigs are the most comfortable, light-weight, and durable wig you could get. They can be pulled into a high ponytail and other up-do’s,

A full lace wig covers the entire head and the application is slightly more unique than a lace front wig. The full lace wig is attached all around the perimeter of your hairline. It is best to wear a wig cap when wearing a full lace wig, since it will be protecting your whole head.

Full lace wigs have a natural look and stay put as long as they are applied correctly. They are able to be worn during most sports activities without coming off. When they are applied correctly, only you and your stylist will know that the absolutely luxurious hair on your head is not really yours!

360 Lace Wigs

360 Degree Lace Wigs were created in 2016, They allow wig wearers to wear undetectable ponytail styles. 360 wigs are a combination of lace frontal wigs and full lace wigs. In a 360 wig, the entire perimeter is made of lace and so it is applied similarly to a full lace wig. The middle of a 360 wig might be made of the same durable material as the lace frontal wig.

Conclusion

Lace wigs whether lace frontal or full lace are a very good buy to make and a splendid addition to your hair care routine. Their versatility and naturalness are second to non. You know I would rather you get these in Indian virgin remy or temple hair as I know they will serve you a lot longer and remain soft and beautiful. In the next article I will show you my best lace wig picks!

WHY YOU WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
I have been wearing weaves and wigs for well over twenty (20) years! I have had some horrible experiences in the initial stages when I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted, what the offerings were, where I need to look or what was suitable for me.

For my first human hair bundle purchase, I can assure you I did not even take the length of the weave into consideration and so I ended up with hair that was much shorter than my natural length, hair that was a human mix and hair that was definitely not even close to my hair type! The long and short of that experience is that I wasted my money.

It took me several years to understand what I should be looking for and how to go about the whole search. I want to help you not to make the same mistakes I did. I want to help you make meaningful, successful hair decisions that will ensure your confidence oozes!

Let’s face it! In putting our best self forward we have to ensure that we have good hair days!

Indian Remy Hair Weaves

On the Human hair extension hunt?

Investing in Indian Remy hair Weaves or wigs is a very important decision to make. You want to get the best value for your money and of course you do not want to be scammed out of your hard-earned cash by purchasing cheap knockoffs from unscrupulous hair vendors. In this article I want to tell you about Virgin Indian Hair.

[adinserter block=”1″]

What is Virgin Indian Hair?

During the initial stage of my hair extension journey, I used to believe that

  • Brazilian Hair came from Brazil
  • Peruvian Hair came from Peru
  • Indian Hair came from India and so on!

Really funny! Right?

[adinserter block=”1″]

It is said that….. “a little learning is a dangerous thing”… so after many hair extension fails, I finally did my research and came up with some very interesting information. The only people in the world who donate their hair are the Indians. Through religious practices, some Indians go to temples to have their head shorn. This hair is collected and sold to hair vendors. The hair is sorted into categories as Brazilian, Peruvian, Malaysian and Cambodian etc. The category it is placed in depends on the type, quality and grade of the hair. As you might expect, the finer hair gets graded as Peruvian and so on. Indian hair is almost perfect for people of African American origin.

Virgin  Indian hair otherwise called Temple Hair is hair from the temples in India. It is unprocessed human hair that has never been chemically treated. When you purchase Virgin Indian hair, you can be assured that you are getting the best hair available on the market in its natural form. It was never permed, colour treated or bleached. All the cuticles are intact as the hair flows in on direction, this means it will not tangle. Each one of these bundles of hair might have come from the head of a single donor making it a single drawn hair or from two donors, making it double drawn hair. It is guaranteed that this hair has longevity, quality and beauty.

Caring for Virgin Indian Hair

You will have to take care of your virgin hair in the same way you would take care of your own hair…..In my case, better than you would your own hair! You will have to wash it at least once each week using moisturizing shampoos and conditioners that are pH balanced. Also, use hair products which will keep it soft and help it retains its moisture, remember it is not growing from your scalp so it is not getting the natural oils it would get. Finally, refrain from using too much heat on your Virgin Indian Hair, it will not last as long as it could if you do. Try to dry it naturally after washing. Research good products for your hair, Some products weigh the hair down leaving it looking dull and lifeless and also contribute to tangling. Try not to use product with alcohol and as a rule I do not use oil sheen sprays! In my next article I will help you chose the best products for your Virgin Indian Hair.

Conclusion

Don’t get tricked in paying a lot of money for low quality hair, or hair being passed off as virgin, which is not virgin at all. Buy from reputable vendors and still ask questions to determine where they sourced their hair. Some vendors provide brochures that give information about the hair and also hair care information. Take advantage of these. Until next time….take care!

Caring for Your Indian Remy Hair Weaves and Wigs

If you have Remy hair extensions or wigs you have undoubtedly made a good investment…..in short, you have the very best hair. It is not cheap and so you have to care for it so that it lasts as long as possible….over a year, more if you care for them properly. In this article we will discuss how you go about caring for your Remy hair.

[adinserter block=”1″]

It is Not Getting Essential Oils from your Scalp

Do remember that it is real hair that was previously on someone’s head but it is not attached to your scalp. This therefore means that the air is not getting the natural oils from your scalp and so you will need to keep take some thins into consideration when washing the hair to prevent it from drying out. You should endeavour to wash your hair once every week.

Washing the Hair

To wash your Remy hair and wigs you will need

  •  a soft brush
  •  a wide tooth comb and
  • moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that has a low pH balance. These shampoos and conditioners have a pH level of 3.5 to 4.5 and are gentle and will not strip your hair plus they are rich in moisture

How to Wash Your Remy Hair

You should first comb the hair to get rid of knots and tangles. Comb from the end up to the roots. When it is tangle free you should wet the hair then apply conditioner. When this is don the hair will retain the moisture.

Next you will apply the shampoo without rinsing the conditioner from the hair and wash gently….do not rub the hair….you are basically swishing water through it!

[adinserter block=”1″]

Rinse the hair and apply the conditioner again. At this point you could allow the conditioner to stay on the hair for approximately 3 minutes before you rinse. This will add more moisture to the hair.

Rinse the conditioner from the hair then put the hair or wig on a towel and gently pat it to get rid of all the excess water.

Allow the hair to dry naturally as heat will damage it. Under no circumstances should you wring or rub the hair through the entire process.

When the hair is dry you can apply a small amount of your favourite hair dress and style as desired.

Have a great day weaving and wigging it!

Human, Remy and Virgin Hair -the guide

Posted on September 17, 2019January 15, 2020Categories All about Human Hair Extensions and WigsTags , 4 Comments on Human, Remy and Virgin Hair -the guide

The hair extension business has taken the world by storm! It is a very lucrative trade and more and more people are getting into the hair business. Almost everyone and their mother are wearing weaves these days due to their versatility and longevity…..You can be a blond today, a redhead tomorrow and a brunette the other day, long medium length or short…..all this without damaging your real hair!

The powers that be in the hair industry understands the prominence that hair extensions have taken even among the rich and the famous, movie stars and all and sometimes exploit the buyer by presenting products that are not what they seem.

[adinserter block=”1″]

Let us talk about hair

There are basically four types of hair as listed below:

  • Synthetic hair
  • Human hair
  • Remy hair
  • Virgin hair

Each type serves its purpose but one cannot be adequately substituted for another and the same results are obtained. We will now examine each type singly.

Synthetic Hair

[adinserter block=”1″]

Synthetic hair is simply man made hair. It is made from a number of man-made fibers including acrylic. Synthetic hair has the look and feel of real human hair. This hair is low cost, low maintenance and offers various options in terms of curl patterns, lengths and styles. Most synthetic hair cannot be heat treated – using curling irons etc. Because they will burn and or lose their original curl pattern. Some can be straightened or curled depending on the fiber from which they were made. Synthetic hair is usually shinier than human hair. Just remember that some manufacturers of synthetic hair advertise them as being compatible with 100% human hair. Do not be fooled…..it did not say that they were human hair!

Hair Cuticle

 

Before we discuss the three types of human hair, let us talk a bit about hair cuticle. Cuticle is the outer part of a strand of hair. It covers the cortex inside. It is formed from dead cells, overlapping in layers, which form scales that strengthen and protect the hair shaft. On your head the cuticle of all your hair flows in the same direction – from roots to end.

Human hair

Human hair was at some point on the head of a person. How it was collected is an entirely different story. It comes from hair brushes, the floors of salons or even peoples’ head, however, no care was taken to ensure that the cuticle all run in the same direction which will ensure that the hair doesn’t mat and remains soft and manageable. To make sure the buyer is unaware of this little detail., human hair is washes in silicone which coats the strands making them appear soft. Unfortunately, after a few washes you will realize the sad truth…you were duped!

Remy Hair

If you purchase Remy hair, you are purchasing quality hair. This hair was taken from someone’s head and the cuticles have been rearranged so that they all run in the same direction so the hair is soft. The donor of Remy hair might have dyed, processed or bleached the hair before it was donated. Remy hair is very popular and can be costly but it is worth the expense seeing that you will get your money’s worth…..it usually lasts for over a year!

[adinserter block=”1″]

 

VIRGIN HAIRRRRRR! 🙂

Everyone would love to get virgin hair but not all of us can afford it. Simply because it is the most expensive of hairs. Virgin hair was taken from one donor therefore, all the cuticles run in the same direction. This hair was never processed in any way and that is how it is even better than Remy hair. I still have virgin hair that I have bought over two years ago! Although it is more expensive…the value for money is astronomical.

In conclusion, when purchasing hair for the first time you can be guided by this article so that you make the best hair decision
