WHAT IS ANDROGENIC ALOPECIA? by Julia

June 16, 2020

Losing between 50 to 100 strands of hair per day is normal. But what does it mean when when you’re losing much more? About a third of women experience hair loss (alopecia) at some point in their lives. Among postmenopausal women, approximately two-thirds suffer from thinning hair or baldness. The loss often has a greater impact on women than on men. Alopecia can also severely affect a woman's emotional well-being and quality of life. But understanding hair loss caused by androgens can help you get it under control and ease away the stress it gives you.

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.

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!

Inspecting a Wig To Keep or Not To Keep by Kathleen

Inspecting a Wig To Keep or Not To Keep by Kathleen

June 05, 2020 4 Comments

Hi folks Kathleen here with a inspection checklist to use when you receive a new wig. I’ll be honest. I don't really send wigs back. Having said that if I had a checklist in front of me I might have. What happens is I get excited..throw the wig on and I’m off to the races. By the time I notice “issues” I’ve fallen in love with my new wig and most likely have voided my ability to return her. That plus I am a Taurus.....need I say more. I’m very stubborn and creative so I just figure I’ll find a way to “fix” the issues/issues.

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 don't you just take pictures of every color instead of the swatches?

Our wigs, on the other hand, are often much more expensive in terms of wholesale cost. The average synthetic wig in our store has a wholesale cost of over $100. That's for a single unit! On top of that, some of these wigs come in dozens of colors, meaning that we (CysterWigs) could spend over $7000 to take images of JUST the Allure by Jon Renau, for example. Multiply this expense times 350+ different styles, and you're talking an expense of several hundred thousand dollars for what, at the end of the day, is a helpful appearing marketing gimmick that isn't as helpful as you might think.
