How To Stop The Shine On A Synthetic Wig

There are lots of questions that customers ask about wigs in general but getting rid of the shine on a new wig is one of the most frequent! Wigs can look *wiggy* when they are new because of the sheen, particularly on blonde wigs, but after a few washes it starts to dull down so just be patient and you will probably find that with little or no effort the fibre starts to look less glossy! If you can't be patient then there are a few tips which you might find useful. Soaking in vinegar or lemon juice will dull the sheen but it can be hard work and you often need to do it a few times to see any results. By that time you could have washed it and got the same duller look. We wouldn't recommend you do this on a brand new wig (although we have and there were no adverse effects!) However, please do not risk and damage to a new wig and try out on an older wig first if you do want to go down this route.

To the rescue comes dry shampoo! Not only is this great for those lucky enough to have a full head of hair, it's invaluable for wig wearers too. This is now classed as the number one way to tone down synthetic wig shine. Sprinkle some onto the wig and gently rub it in. This works better on lighter colours as the powder can leave a residue on darker wigs. In any event, the darker wigs tend not to look quite as shiny anyway! The dry shampoo is probably the safest option and certainly less messy than lemon juice - yes we did get pips and bits of lemon in the hair!  Try looking this subject up on You Tube.  There's tons of information on there to help with wigs. You will also find lots of invaluable information regarding applying false eyelashes if you have alopecia and have no eyelashes at all.  Help is at hand for most things to do with hair loss, alopecia, trichotillomania.

Cindy Mono Lace Wig by Gisela Mayer

This gorgeous wig is from the Modern Hair Collection by Gisela Mayer. How natural does this look?!! Fabulous lace front giving an invisible finish to the hair line.  The mono top also gives the illusion that the hair is growing from the scalp. The back and sides are wefted giving a lightweight and airy feel. Lovely cut to this bob shape - great colours, great style. This fab wig is cut shorter at the back with longer sides and has some fine layering. Also available in a few rooted colours.  The way to tell if a colour is rooted is that it will have a *+* sign in the colour, i.e. 25/23+8. This means that the colour of the wig is a blonde mix with a chocolate colour root.  A lot of people really love rooted colours as they feel it gives a more realistic appearance to the wig, but for those less keen there are lots of colours to choose from without the added roots! Everyone is different so a range of colours and mixes are available to suit all! A major favourite with our customers so please email for colour availability before ordering!!

Chinese Wig Companies Selling Inferior Wigs - THEY ARE NOT WIGS WORLD!!!!!!

We've received a few phone calls from people who have purchased wigs from inferior websites based in China.  There are several around and they look like UK websites but they are not!  If you look more deeply into their website, i.e. look at the returns policy, you will see it is all in broken English. We have spoken to Trading Standards but there is nothing we can do.  They are in China so our own Trading Standards have no control.  Also, anyone can set up a website with just one letter different in the URL and that is all legal!  So if you see a website that says wigworld (the *S* missing)... it is NOT US!  We cannot help if you have bought from elsewhere!  

Avoid buying from  ANY of the companies pertaining to be based in the UK but in fact are from CHINA. Check their returns policies and payment options, Western Union is a give away as it any badly written English.  BUY FROM THE UK!  You can buy from us with complete confidence. Remember, If it looks too good to be true, then it probably is!

New Wigs Arriving Soon

We always love it when new brochures come out featuring new wig styles and colours.  We love it even more when new collections are produced, particularly when those collections include a completely new type of fibre! 

Let us introduce you to the 'High Tech Hair' wigs by Gisela Mayer which will be available from us very soon! At first glance, it would seem they are simply heat resistant wigs but do not be fooled! This new collection is made from fibre which can be treated just like your own hair but the big difference is that it doesn't need heat to re-style it! If you have been impressed by the heat resistant fibre that has come onto the market these past few years then you will really love the fabulous High Tech Collection.

Of course, we love heat resistant wigs because they give another option to the wearer.  They tend to last that little bit longer and can be restyled with heated appliances but of course the heat must not be too extreme or it can still damage the hair and knowing just what level of heat is considered OK to use and what should be avoided is a bit of a minefield. The one thing that takes this new collection into the big league is that re-styling can be done with COOL appliances. In fact, they do not need heat at all giving a longer lasting, hassle free wig which will not inadvertently get damaged as no heat is required. 

All wigs in this collection are pre-styled and will dry in the same style they were purchased in unless you choose to change the style yourself! 

Not only is the fibre used to manufacture these wigs top quality, but the cap construction of each wig is the highest quality available. All feature a lace front giving an invisible hairline allowing the hair to be swept off the face without fear of the wig cap showing. They also have a 100% hand tied base for a lightweight finish. The monofilament top is completely hand tied and looks as if the hair is growing from the scalp. 

We can only embrace new initiatives and congratulate Gisela Mayer on their contemporary ideas and for offering a range of different wigs to suit every face shape and every pocket. 

This fabulous new collection will be available from us soon.
