Fiber Hair Care
Our wigs are designed to stay put on their own, but for extra security, you can tighten the adjustor straps at the nape. If you’ve got hair underneath, using a grip can help anchor the wig, or if you have total hair loss, double-sided tape will do the trick!
It’s a rare situation, but for extra assurance on windy days, consider wearing a hood, hat, or scarf on top.
A wig cap is totally optional. You can use it to wrap up any existing hair or as a barrier between your natural hair and the wig.
No worries! We’ve got two essential rules for you: position the wig line at the front, about four fingers width from your brow bone, and make sure the ear tabs on each side sit in front of your ears to keep the wig straight. If you need some hands-on guidance, our experienced stylists in our salons are here to help.
Not at all! Wearing a wig won’t prevent your hair from growing back. However, if you’re using glues, it’s best to seek advice from your stylist
We generally wouldn’t recommend it, but if you choose to do so, we suggest using an old wig/hairpiece for swimming. If that’s not possible, make sure to wash the wig immediately after to rinse out any chlorine, etc.
We do not recommend sleeping in your wig, as it can reduce its lifespan. However, we understand that sometimes it’s unavoidable. If you do, try sleeping on a silk pillow to minimise any potential damage.
You sure can! Just keep the hair up loose to avoid showing any joins or edges. And when removing any hair accessory, be gentle!
Our fibre hair wigs/hairpieces come pre-styled, but they can be personalised through thinning and trimming to suit you. However, the overall style cannot be completely changed.
- The lifespan depends on the style and length. Short fibre wigs/hairpieces typically last 4-6 months, mid-length or bob styles 3-4 months, and long styles 2-3 months. These estimates are based on regular wear and proper care.
- No, fibre hair cannot be coloured. While it may naturally dull with age, it does not fade.
- Friction Frizz is common with medium to long wigs/hairpieces, caused by rubbing against clothing like shirt collars. While it’s unavoidable, you can trim the hair to minimise it. In some cases, purchasing a new piece may be recommended for a fresh look.
we offer a wide range of cap sizes to ensure a perfect fit for our clients. While the average size is 54CM, we understand that everyone’s needs are different. That’s why some of our wigs are available in petite and large sizes, measuring 51CM and 57CM respectively.
For those looking for the ultimate tailored fit, our human hair custom-made wigs can be crafted in any size to precisely match your head measurements. Our goal is to provide you with the most comfortable and natural-looking wig, and our varied cap sizes play a significant role in achieving that goal. Our team of experts is always here to assist you in finding the ideal size and style that suits you best.
- Machine Wefted wigs/hairpieces are made by machines, featuring Permatease to conceal the machine-made cap
- Monofilament wigs/hairpieces have hand-knotted hair on a skin-like material, offering a natural appearance but at a slightly higher cost. You can find Monofilament options in Amore, Noriko, Sentoo Premium, and Stimulate collections.
For daily wear, we recommend washing your fibre hair wig/hairpiece every 7-10 days using our T-Range Fibre aftercare products, specially designed for fibre hair. Always follow the provided aftercare instructions.
No, we advise against using any heated appliances, as they can damage the fibre. Be cautious around heat sources like ovens and gas heaters too, as they can harm the hair.
