AMY’S MAINTENANCE TIPS
The “Stick Up” look: Just spray a little bit on your hands then rub your hands together and simply run your fingers through your hair. The hair will go in the direction you place it. If you want to have the ends flip up – just run your fingers through your hair and then as you get to the ends grab and turn up and let go – just guide the hair the way you want and it will react and go into that style easily.
Straighter Look: Carefully brush through the piece while it’s wet. When dry you can use a straightening iron on the piece, but no higher than 250 F and you must work through the hair quickly to avoid burning the hair, allowing it to straighten.
Again, you can place some spray on your hands and work through the piece to then place the hair where you want it – i.e., to stay behind your ears etc. You can tease the piece to stick up easily.
Getting Height: If you want “all” the hair to stand up even more, then after washing, pat the piece a bit with a small towel, then shake the piece out and continue drying the piece upside down by attaching it to a clip hanger and letting it hang dry.
To add more waves without using heat products: After washing and patting dry, simply place the piece on a towel standing correctly (not upside down) and let it dry that way. Also, try patting it dry and then place it on a table positioned so inside is facing you and let it dry naturally.
ADD TO NATURAL CURL: If your piece is made with natural body, here is a good way to add a bit more curl/wave into the piece.
Stretching the Base: It is advisable to bring the piece to a professional wig maker or store that does alterations and have this task performed by qualified professionals at a nominal fee.
We do not suggest wearing your human hair or synthetic wig while sleeping. It can cause matting in at the nape and shorten its shelf life.
Do not scratch your human hair wig with your fingers or your cap as it can loosen or break the small knots where the hair is attached.
HYGIENE – IMPORTANT
Always keep your scalp clean by wiping it with an organic soap and warm water with a washcloth or cotton ball with toner on it. Yonka Toner or Witch Hazel is terrific. You can find it at most beauty supply stores and drug stores. However, just keeping it clean with an organic soap and water is usually good enough.
