April 23rd, 2014 Posted 7:50 am

Most people discard a cosplay wig when it has become damaged or tangled. This is unnecessarily wasteful, especially if a kanekalon wig is thrown away. So, let’s focus on methods of salvaging tangled cosplay wig made from high temperature fibers and kanekalon bellow.

cosplay wig

First, let’s look at a tangled cosplay wig. Just as the photo shows, it’s rather jagged and fluffy. There are knots of about 10 centimeters away from the top.

It will be difficult to comb it without using some type of hair detangler. So, add a little hair detangler and grab a small section of the hair with your left hand. Use your right hand to comb the hair using a steel comb or an anti-static comb from tips to root.

Do not instantly, resort to using scissors, if you encounter a knot. First, run your fingers over the knot, attempt to smoothen it. If it becomes smooth, just pull it and comb it with a steel comb.

If it does not become smooth, use your fingers to quickly drag small knots to the tips. The knots should be as small as possible. Then, cut at the middle of each knot; don’t pull the hair once cut. Use steel combs to comb it once again until all cut knots are pulled from the wig and adhere to the steel comb.

When encountering a group of, do not use scissors because these knots will easily form while handling a wig. If you cut the wig frequently, the wig will have less depth. Instead, separate the smooth hair to one side of the wig and the group of knots to the other side of the wig. Then, comb the wig upwards, about 10 centimeters above the knot several times, using some force until the knot combs smoothly.

Repeat above two steps as needed. In most cases, hair is tangled and has knots, however you can deal with these utilizing the above two steps. After removing all knots, wash the hair. Flush water while combing. Then, allow the wig to air dry.

If possible, use an electric hair flat iron, which is the only tool to smooth jagged end. Before clipping, comb several at times and hold the top of the wig with one hand to avoid it hanging freely. Grab small section of hair with the other hand and slowly flat iron the hair from roots to tip. Use a little force for a smoother look and to evenly distribute the heat.

And there you have it; a tangled cosplay wig made from high temperature fibers has been restored to the original shape.

This will create the finished look, the tips of the hair are no longer tangled and frizzy, instead you now have soft and silky, tangle-free hair. Spray a bit of hair detangler and store the hair into a hermetic bag until the hair detangler dries.

Uniwigs Hair Weft Extensions

No Comments »

April 21st, 2014 Posted 7:29 am

UniWigs human hair weft extensions are made from the finest quality materials, using premium quality Remy cuticle hair.

The Optimum Cuticle Remy Hair is truly the most exceptional ever. Unlike other commercial hair, the cuticle has not been removed from the hair, just as nature intended. Cuticle hair is created by careful processing which leaves the cuticle layer of the hair in place. The result is a superior hair item that colors beautifully and has the highlights and natural shading of your own hair. These super versatile wefts are not clip-in so they can be cut and applied by your salon professional using sew-in clips, cold fusion tape, or other methods of application. Your stylist can expertly blend these customizable extension wefts with your own hair for added length and volume.

Weft hair extensions can be purchased from most beauty supply stores in either synthetic fiber or 100 percent human hair. Wefts are strands of hair that are woven into long, cloth bands. The bands, not the actual extension hair, are what you attach to your natural locks. Wefts are applied to your hair with a special type of latex glue made specially for hair extensions. Give your hair the length and body you want by applying weft hair extensions.

Instructions

1

Create a horizontal part across the back of your head about 2 to 3 inches from the nape of your neck. Clip the rest of your hair away.
2

Measure the part and cut a weft slightly smaller than the measurement.

3

Apply a thin line of glue along the rough side of the band at the top of the weft.
4

Press the glue-side of the weft along the part, about 1/4 inch from the roots. Lightly press your fingers all along the weft.
5

Hold the extension in place for about 30 seconds to allow the glue to dry. Unclip your hair and create another horizontal part across the back of your head about 1/2 inch above the first part.
6

Repeat the applications until you reach just below the crown of your head. Extensions applied any higher will be visible.
7

Make a horizontal part about 1/2 inch above your left ear. Cut a weft slightly smaller than the part and repeat the applications until you reach just below your temple. Repeat this process for the other side of your hair.

Synthetic hair can be made from a variety of synthetic fibers. Walk into the nearest beauty supply store and you’re likely to see a wall filled from top to bottom with hair in a huge variety of colors, lengths and textures. Easy to find and readily available, you might want synthetic hair for weaving if:
This type of hair weave is generally much less expensive than human hair. However, don’t let cost be the only consideration when it comes to selecting hair for weaving. When it comes to hair additions, you tend to get what you pay for.
You Want Individual Braids:
Synthetic hair doesn’t lend itself well to the free-flowing styles that human hair does, but if you’re fashioning individual braids or braids with additions, synthetic hair will offer you affordability and a lot of options in this area. Unlike human hair, you can seal the ends of synthetic braids with heat to prevent them from unraveling.
You’re Comfortable with One Texture or Style:
Because you cannot apply thermal tools to this type of hair, you’ll have to love the texture you choose. If your synthetic weave is curly, it’s going to stay that way the duration of the application. Since synthetic hair is relatively inexpensive, you may not mind wearing a curly ponytail addition for just a couple of weeks before switching to something different.

Wigs is a head of hair made from horsehair, human hair, wool, feathers, buffalo hair, or synthetic materials which is worn on the head for fashion or various other aesthetic and stylistic reasons, including cultural and religious observance. The industry choice, however, is yak hair, which is not only inexpensive, but close in consistency and appearance to human hair as well. Now most people usually choose the 100% human hair to make the full lace wigs as the soft feeling and use the synthetic fiber to make the cheap wig such as the fans wig、doll wig and ponytail just for individualistic style.The word wig is short for periwig and first appeared in the English language around 1675.

Some people wear wigs to disguise the fact that they are bald; a wig may be used as a less intrusive and less expensive alternative to therapies for restoring hair. Wigs may also be used as a cosmetic accessory, sometimes in a religious context. Actors, on the other hand often wear costume wigs in order to better portray a character. The cap is made by machine and the material is synthetic fiber.

Lace wigs are the most expensive types of wigs (after the wigs with Russian, Indian Hair) and have a reputation for being the most realistic looking and undetectable. Lace Wigs usually made of human hair. The wigs are glued to the scalp of the wearer and are reasonably durable or clips onto the head of the wearer. For example, wearers can bathe, swim, and engage in vigorous physical activity while wearing the wig.

Differences Between Human Hair & Synthetic Hair

No Comments »

April 1st, 2014 Posted 3:31 am

Which is right for you? Maybe both. Human Hair and Synthetic Hair have advantages and limitations which make them the right choice at different times. Both are great choices for you depending on your budget, time, and needs. Optimally, you will choose to have both on hand as they each have their pluses! Here are the facts so you can know what circumstance is most beneficial for each.

Human Hair

Human Hair offers the most natural look and feel.  It is remarkably soft with a shine and movement that is not easily duplicated in synthetic hair.  It is also extremely versatile.  Human Hair can be cut and styled to suit your personal tastes.  And while it can be a more expensive pick, with the proper care, it is also more durable and can last over a year.

There are generally four basic types of human hair used in wigs: Chinese, Indonesian, Indian and European/Caucasian.  The majority of wigs are made from Asian hair.  Chinese hair has a thicker denier (unit of fineness) which results in the hair being extremely straight.  It is a bit more resistant to curl and can therefore be harder to style.  Indonesian hair is found in greater supply and is less costly — it can often be found in ethnic style wigs.  Indian hair has thinner denier close to that of European hair but with a bit more texture. European hair is the most sought after for its fine denier but due to its increasingly limited supply in the marketplace, it is more expensive.

Human Hair is by far the superior choice if quality is the only consideration

The origin of the hair is not the only factor, however.  Processing technique is directly related to the strength and quality of the end-product.  The chemicals needed, to sanitize and strip away the original color to produce different curl patterns and colors, are very strong and can affect the integrity of the hair depending on method used.  When a higher quality of chemicals and a more artful approach to processing is used, the results are higher quality product and thus higher price.

Remy human hair is considered a premium option.  Hair follicles are kept running in the same direction when collecting and crafting the wig or hairpiece.  With cuticles all running in the same direction, tangling is greatly reduced and hair looks and feels silkier.

It is extremely important to use care products specifically formulated for highly processed human hair.  Also keep in mind that wearable hair does not benefit from naturally occurring oils from the scalp.  It is important to hydrate and condition hair daily.

Human hair is by far the superior choice if quality is the only factor.  Other than price, the main drawback to human hair is required maintenance — as with natural hair, it requires effort.  For many, daily styling is actually preferable as it allows for more control over the appearance as well as a sense of normalcy that can come with the daily hair styling ritual.Keep in mind that human hair does not come out of the box ready to wear.  You may choose to have it customized by a professional stylist to get exactly the look you like.

It does take a bit of extra effort… but is worth it! View More at Wigs.com

Jewish wigs and Kosher wigs

No Comments »

March 29th, 2014 Posted 8:34 am

Jewish wigs are also known as kosher wigs. These types of wigs are made of either Mongolian or European human hair. The best virgin remy human hair with cuticle is collected and chosen from young and healthy people of Asia from such countries as China and Mongolia. There are two main designs to produce these wigs, the first design is hand sewn, the second design is partly sewn by hand and partly machine manufactured. The two designs both have a skin top which requires complex skills. The skin top has three layers. Hair is tied in the middle layer, then tied throughout the top layer, which will give the appearance that the hair is grown from the scalp, thus creating a more natural look. Using ventilated material to make the cap, combined with an adjustable back, allows Jewish wigs to not only look natural, but also airy and comfortable. In addition, these wigs have been enjoyed by many clients, not only jewish orthodox women!
In order to meet the customers’ demand for hair styles, we have three hair styles for our Jewish wigs, small layers, tidy tips and big layers. These styles are easy to understand. Tidy tips is similar to a BOBO style. If you are looking for a BOBO style, order tidy tips. Our other two styles are small layered and big layered Jewish wigs. What is the difference between the two? The small layers have fewer layers than big layers. Please see the below picture as follows:
Most customers who buy Jewish wigs are orthodox Jewish women. The Jewish law says that married woman should cover their hair with either a wig or cloth. To hide their own hair, some women wear a wig although it is not as beautiful as a woman’s natural hair. The hair is kept in the form of a wig and should be covered and not exposed, as per the law. It is a Jewish myth that Jewish women should not expose their hair to any other person other than their husbands because it is considered as a mark of beauty. Orthodox married women believe that it is an offence to show their beauty and tempt others towards them by showing their hair. They believe that by showing their hair, they are triggering a sexual sensation from other men, which per their law, is not correct and not allowed. Therefore, in order to be more comfortable and beautiful, the majority of married Jewish woman have kosher wigs; they regard wigs as a necessity.
Jewish wigs require the highest technology in this field. With that said, please trust us: Using our wigs will bring you true beauty and comfort and deep satisfaction. Everyone can enjoy our wigs!

Trendy Trapper Hats: How To Protect Your Hair From The Damaging Cold Of Winter

Winter may be a great season for the fashionable, what with the cooler weather making it possible to experiment with layers of different fabrics. But women often neglect how the cold temperatures can leave hair damaged and frizzy.

Expert Secrets: Easy Steps to Winterize Your Hair – Winter Hair Care Tips

Dr. Debra Price, MD of ChickRX says that the cold, frigid air of the winter months can cause static build-up in your hair, which could lead to excessive breakage. Hair is much more fragile in the winter, so it’s important to make sure you keep it moisturized and, when you go out, tucked under a nice, warm hat.

Luckily for the trend-watchers out there, hat designs are constantly being churned out. And while many designers have resorted to the common bobble hat or beanie, there is one kind of hat that has been taking the fashion world by storm: the trapper hat.

The trapper hat is ideal for those who want to protect their hair, but still stay stylish, as some trapper hat designs have flaps that can reach down past one’s shoulders. Instead of tucking all of your hair into a beanie, or wrapping it all up in a scarf, consider investing in a nice, fashionable trapper hat — it’s guaranteed to be the next big thing!
