1. Wash Your Human Hair Wigs
You can’t put on the wig immediately after you get it. Because some chemicals may remain on the wig. When making wigs, it is inevitable to use some chemicals for treatment, which can make the hair look good and keep the shape of wigs during transportation. And when you open the package, there may be a smell on the wig. This smell is a moisturizer sprayed by the supplier, which can keep the wig from deforming during transportation. So the first thing to do after receiving the wig is to clean it. Then use a towel to dry the excess water on the wig. After the wig is naturally dried, it can be shaped.
2. Put The Wig On The Mannequin To Comb
Before modeling the wig, make sure that the wig is dry, and no water can remain, otherwise it will cause damage to the hair. After the wig is completely air dried, put the wig on the head of the mannequin and fix it with a hairpin. Then comb the wig with a comb or your fingers. The best way to shape a wig is to put it on a mannequin. Because not every one of us is a professional hairdresser, putting the wig on the mannequin can let us have more energy to design the hairstyle instead of thinking about how to fix the wig. Another advantage of the mannequin head is that you can see all the angles of your hair when designing it. Although you can also use a wig holder, the mannequin head has an additional advantage, that is, you can hold the hairpin and modeling tools, which will be useful when creating a bun or other complex shapes. They can also help you avoid tangles.
3. Use a Heat Protectant
Before using the curling iron or hair rollers, be sure to apply the heat protectant on the hair. Because human hair wigs are made from 100% human hair, any operation on hair can damage the health of hair. Moreover, the human hair wig has lost its vitality and should be well cared for. Use a heat protectant will help protect your wig from the damage to high temperatures. It’s best to use products specifically for wigs. This will better protect the wig and make it look healthier.
4. Straighten Your Wig
After fixing your hair, you can start styling it. Before styling, you can trim your hair with scissors until you are satisfied. If you want to make your hair straight, you need to use a hair straightener. First, divide the wig into several parts, to ensure that each hair will not be ignored. You can use your fingers or a wide toothed comb to separate your hair. Start from the bottom of your wig and divide it up. According to the density of the wig, you can divide the hair into several parts, generally 4-6 parts. Each part of the hair is clamped and fixed with a hairpin. Then straighten your hair with a hair straightener from the bottom to the top until these parts of the hair are finished. Finally, comb it with your fingers or a wide toothed comb. You can see if the shape is satisfactory and if there is still room for adjustment.
5. Curl Your Wig
If you want to make your hair curly, you need a curling iron. Just like straightening a wig, the first step is to divide the hair into several parts. Use a hairpin to fix each part of your hair. Take a small strand of hair and wrap it tightly around the curly stick. Determine the retention time according to the curl curve you want. Curly hair with large radian needs to be retained for less time, while curly hair with smaller radian needs to be retained for longer time. Let the hair cool for a few minutes after all the hair is rolled, which helps the curly hair to be better fixed and maintained in order to keep the curly hair in the best state without deformation. You can also apply a layer of wig spray to your hair.
