Style to give it a natural look

Manufactured wigs with an excess of sparkle look fake and unnatural. To limit sparkle, sprinkle a little hair powder on your wig, and afterward brush through for a more common look or purchase a spray bottle, fill it with cool water and gently spritz your wig while styling.

Following this process while styling will allow your wig to look real and blend into your handsomeness perfectly.

For human hair wigs, apply the products without sulfate as they maintain their color and shine and only use styling and washing items intended for use with synthetic wigs. For example, a wig spray or gel produced particularly for synthetic wigs can be used to hold your style.

When it comes to styling, the best advice is to give your wig a style which is close to the current style you have. This is because God made us with the best configuration hence all the features we naturally have are the ones that are likely to suit us the most. However, it’s good to try diverse hairstyles on different occasions and situations.

Also, Make sure that you get it trimmed while you are wearing it so that the look that is customized to your specific face shape. You can do this by wearing a jaw strap which holds the wig in place while it is being cut or styled. This avoids slippage and guarantees that you get your style looking perfect.

Firstly, never brush a wet wig and when brushing your dry wig, always utilize a brush or comb particularly intended to use with wigs, as ordinary brushes made for normal hair can pull on and harm the wig strands. Secondly, try not to utilize warmed styling devices with wigs that are not particularly named as “heat resistant” or 100% human hair.
