Creating your own...
undetectable hairpiece or wig is easy when you use a little common
sense. The trick is to control the hair density while you are creating
the hairpiece or wig. This should be considered before to creating
your piece and not after it has already been created.
Hair density is easily controlled
simply by spacing each hair according while ventilating the hair
to the hairpiece or wig foundation. Controlling the number of hairs
being tied to the foundation is very important. Keep in mind each
hair tied to the foundation equals 2-hairs per knot. Two (2) hairs
will result in 4-hairs, 3-hairs equals 6-hairs, and so on. It is
recommended to tie just 1-hair at a time to the part and front hairline
areas so the hair density looks natural. However, 2 or 3-hairs per
knot may be tied to the remainder of the hairpiece or wig foundation
complete ventilation of hair to your hairpiece.
How hair is tied... is also
very important considering future maintenance on a hairpiece or
wig. It is common for hair to break from combing or wearing your
hairpiece or wig while sleeping. Using a lock-knot does not allow
hair to release from the foundation when a hair is broken or pulled
loose from a hairpiece or wig. Using a basic-knot does allow hair
to release completely from the foundation and new hair can easily
be ventilated to the foundation to replenish hair loss.
direction... is as equally important as managing the hair density
while creating a natural looking hairpiece or wig with your desired
hair style. This is also very easily done by simply drawing an outline
of your desired hairpiece or wig on to the hair piece foundation
- before hair is ventilated to the foundation surface. Click here
to see an example of how a hair style hair pattern may be outlined
on to a hairpiece or wig foundation. (The arrows in this illustration
indicate which direction hair is to be tied while ventilating.)
This process is easily done...
you simply place the hairpiece or wig foundation over the bald area
on your head and draw an outline of the hairpiece (or lace front
wig hairline) you wish to create. The outline should include the
part and whorl areas. Drawing the arrows is optional, however, using
a lead pencil is recommended. This will allow the outline to be
removed by simply washing and styling the hairpiece or wig after
it is created.
HAIR COLOR MISMATCH
Using a color-matched
hair... to create a hairpiece or wig is as important as controlling
the hair density and direction - if you wish to create an undetectable
hairpiece or wig. When the hair on your hairpiece or wig does not
match with you own hair color -- it becomes obvious that you are
wearing a piece. This problem is easily resolved by simply ordering
and using a color-matched hair supply that will match you own hair
to create your desired piece.
Ordering color-matched hair
is easily done by simply providing a sample of your own hair, attached
to the completed order form, when ordering your hair supply for
creating your hairpiece or wig.
Choosing the right hair...
for creating your hairpiece or wig is also very important. You have
two choices: 1. You can use synthetic to create your hairpiece or
wig. 2. You can use human hair to create your hairpiece or wig.
Synthetic hair is the least expensive and it
is available in any color and length desired.
Human hair on the other
hand is more expensive and it's not available in every color (excluding
white and gray) and desired length. Synthetic white or gray hair
is commonly used for color-matching hair supplies that include these
Ordering a hair supply to
match dyed human hair... can be a problem. The reason for this is
because the dyed hair sample that is provided to the vendor will
not match your own dyed hair when you have finished creating your
hairpiece or wig. While creating your hairpiece or wig it is common
that you wash your own hair on a regular basis. Each time your hair
is washed it fades a little in color of which will result in a color
mismatch between your own dyed hair the dyed hair on your new hairpiece
Dying hair on a synthetic
hairpiece or wig is not recommended! The main reason for this is
because synthetic hair is non absorbent plastic that does not retain
regular hair dyes.
Dying hair on a human hair
hairpiece or wig is possible, however, certain conditions must be
considered! When dying the hair on a human hair hairpiece or wig
to match your own hair it is recommended to dye your own hair simultaneously.
This will allow both the hair on your hairpiece or wig to fade in
contrast with your own hair.
Using a quality hair care
shampoo and conditioner will add to the length of time that both
synthetic hair and human hair stays natural looking. Hair shampoos,
hair conditioners, hair spray, and hair styling gels are all recommended
for maintaining the vitality of both synthetic and human hair. However,
keep in mind that shampoo causes dyed hair to fade slightly each
time it is washed!
