What is the recommended care for a blended-fiber wig?

June 10, 2020

Synthetic-safe care products will not damage the human hair in these blended-fiber wigs, but human-hair products may damage the heat-friendly synthetic fiber of the blend. We recommend that you use the same care techniques that you would for synthetics, since that material generally makes up about 70% of the wig.

Watch this before you buy ANY pricey wig or topper!

I believe that you should never buy ANYTHING if you are in the grip of anxiety. It is very difficult to focus on what you're doing when you feel anxious. You may even buy too quickly in the rush to end those uncomfortable feelings. This can lead to a lot of problems all by itself if you don't end up enjoying the product!

Why do certain styles look longer/shorter on different people?

Why do certain styles look longer/shorter on different people?

May 27, 2020

That is a fantastic question! Now, I also have a question for you, have you measured your face? (from your hairline to your chin) This measurement will help greatly with figuring what the length of a style will be on you, especially when it comes those shorter, pixie cuts! I also have a very petite cap size and about a 7" long face. So, I know when I see a certain style has a fringe measurement of 3.75" (about 4"), I know it's most likely going to fall around my cheekbone, maybe a bit higher, like with Ivy by Noriko. I use this same trick for the side measurement as well. I find it really helps me determine if I'll like the length of a certain style.

Why is it so difficult to find wigs in pure cool / ash tones?

Why is it so difficult to find wigs in pure cool / ash tones?

May 13, 2020 3 Comments

Almost every wig color in the world, with very few exceptions, has a bit of gold, neutral (or “honey”) tones, or auburn mixed in, if only in subtle amounts. Pure ash colors do exist, especially in the platinums and lighter greys, but they are definitely few and far between. This is because ash tones tend to age people, and most women want to look younger than their actual age, not the other way around.

Human Hair Wig Care Do's & Don'ts

Human Hair Wig Care Do's & Don'ts

April 07, 2020

Human Hair wigs can last a lot longer than synthetics, but that’s only If you take proper care of them. View them as a long term investment and caring for them will become part of your routine. EDIT #1: A lot of folks have been asking what kind of shampoo & conditioner to use on their human hair wigs. I really like Jon Reanu's Argan Luxury line of products. The shampoo & conditioner can both be found on CysterWigs, in addition to supplementary products if you feel you need more moisturizing power!

I need help with the Raquel Auburns!

I need help with the Raquel Auburns!

March 25, 2020

I think you might be okay.  The True2Life #30 (the darker color in the Rusty Auburn) is kind of like a reddish brown blended up with a medium auburn, so it isn’t a straight #30.  It’s a little more dynamic than that.  I wouldn’t necessarily consider this a brunette shade, but it definitely has some brunette elements in the mix, kind of like the hint of auburn brown hiding in the #29 in that’s in the Golden Russet.  It’s subtle, but it’s in there.  :)
