The hair replacement system
becomes an essential part of your daily routine as it helps you hide baldness, thinning hair or a receding hairline. Your hair system restores your confidence and keeps your hair looking natural and long lasting. Having a high-quality hair system is a huge investment that you can further maximize with proper care.
Most men usually have a simple hair care routine that works for them. However, this simple routine may not work for hair systems. The hair system requires more than washing and combing to maintain a natural and healthy look.
Here are some basic things you should do to properly care for your hair system.
1. Regularly clean the hair system
This is very important because your hair system is prone to build-up of product, glue residue, dead skin cells, bacteria and pollution. Failure to thoroughly clean the hair system can damage the roots of the hair and damage its base material because of all the sticky stuff that sticks to the material.
Cleaning your hair system on a regular basis doesn't necessarily mean you have to wash your hair every day. In fact, doing so will weaken your wig. A general rule of thumb is to wash and clean your system at least weekly. However, it usually depends on how dirty your hair is.
2. Use the correct skin care products
When washing and shampooing, you need to make sure you use the correct hair care products. Maintenance products for the hair system are often used on synthetic fibers or human hair. Be sure to check product labels to make sure you're buying the correct type for your hair system.
Many people generally think that regular shampoos work well for the hair system. However, this is a false assumption and could result in damage to your wig.
In addition to the hair itself, you are cleaning the foundation that forms the foundation of your hair system. Therefore, products specially formulated for wigs must be used.
3. Use a good conditioner
The hair system often needs moisture to stay healthy and shiny. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that the hair system is always well hydrated. If your wig is left unwetted for a long time, it can become dry and brittle, eventually leading to matting or even damage.
The best way to ensure that your hair system is hydrated is to use a well-formulated, high-quality conditioner. After rinsing off the shampoo, apply a suitable conditioner to the wig to restore the moisture lost during the wash.
However, make sure not to over-condition your wig. Too much moisture can make your hair system dry, mushy and brittle.
4. Avoid exposing the hair system
to too much sunlight or heat
Too much sunlight is harmful to human hair. The same goes for the hair system. Prolonged overexposure to the sun can make the hair system vulnerable to harmful UV rays. These UV rays and extra oxygen can turn the hue of the hair system into orange or red due to a process called "oxidation."
In addition to sunlight, exposing the hair system to heat and heated tools can also cause serious damage. Using too much heat to style the hair system can quickly dry out all its cuticles and eventually damage its hair.
To maintain the high quality of your wig, make sure to keep it out of sunlight and overheating as much as possible.
5. Store the hair system properly when not in use
Proper storage is also critical to maintaining the durability of your hair system. Wigs are more delicate than regular hair. They can easily break if not handled and stored properly.
It is ideal to store your wig in a dark, cool place away from light and dust. You can also attach it to a canvas or Styrofoam block head when not in use to keep your hair styled and ready to use.
By storing your hair system the right way when not in use, you can ensure that fewer tangles occur and that your wig stays clean and styled.
Learning how to properly care for your non-surgical hair replacement system
is never a waste of time. In fact, it can save you a lot of time and money because properly maintaining your wig means you don't need to change or fix it every now and then.
At the end of the day, if you want to have a handsome wig
that will make you look good, you have to pay attention to how it is stored and how it is worn.
