Step 1: Detangle
Before you wash, be sure to carefully detangle the hair using a wide tooth comb. Work gradually from the ends.

Step 2: Shampoo or CoWash
Using cool water and a gentle touch, get the hair wet. But do not soak as this can lead to tangling.

Without scrubbing, distribute a small amount of shampoo evenly throughout the hair. Never use hot water as it can loosen wefts of hair and damage the fiber.

Step 3: Rinse
Let cool water run through the hair, flowing in same direction of the hair to avoid tangling. When shampoo is removed, gently pat and press the hair with a soft towel to remove excess water. Avoid and wringing or twisting.

Step 4: Condition
Distribute conditioner throughout the hair taking care to avoid roots –particularly with monofilament and hand-tied cap constructions as it can increase shedding. Rinse thoroughly with cool water unless you are using a spray-in, leave-in conditioner.

Step 5: Dry
Gently pat and press hair with a soft towel to remove excess water. Do not rub, squeeze, twist or wring hair. Again, always use a wide tooth comb to detangle as brushing (particularly wet hair) increases shedding. Place on a folding stand (or even a can of hairspray) and allow to air dry. To avoid stretching the cap, never place a damp wig on a mannequin or Styrofoam head.

Once you’ve selected the perfect human hair wigs or synthetic one,, don’t forget to invest in a wig or wig stand for storage. This will help air out any odors and keep your wig from becoming tangled. If needed, you can cover your wig with a scarf to help keep the dust off.

The quantity needed for a full head by hair extensions

When we plan to buy hair extensions, we usually ask how many packs we need to buy for the full head? The quantity we need to buy is really troubled many people who want to use hair extensions.

And for this questios it is also difficult to answer for the professional people, for there is no positive answer for it at all. It depends on many factors, such as the weight of hair per pack, the density of the customer’s hair, and the length of the customer’s hair, and also the customer’s requirements for density.



Assuming each pack contains 20 strands, 1g per strand, a full head of hair extensions range from 5 to 9 packs of hair. To be more specified, if the client has fine, thin hair with some layers and about shoulder length, there are 5 to 6 packs may be enough for a full head used.

If the client has a short hair and all in the same length that is medium to thick in density, you will require about 10 to 12 packs of hair since you will need to blend the extensions in for a natural look.

In general, for most clients, you will need at least 5 packs or 100 strands of hair extensions. The number of hair extension packages you need will be based on the length and thickness of the client’s hair and the length and volume the client wants to achieve. This is why it is very important to have the client come in for a consultation prior to installation.

For fine and thin hair, from the nape down to add the hair extensions, it will take about 40- 50 strands; from the occipital up to the crown, it will take 50-60 strands.

For medium and thick hair, from the nape down it will take 60- 80 strands; from the nape up to the crown it will take 50-80 strands.

Remember, if the hair of the client is thicker or shorter, more often than not, you will need more packages of extensions hair to be able to blend the hair in, making it easy for you to create a natural look.

Before you buy the hair extensions, you can ask professional people for help , they would give you suggestions by your hair conditions and your requirements.

Different kinds of hair weave

Sew-In Weaves
Sectioning the hair properly is very important because it can lessen the mobility of your weave and significantly decrease the appearance of hair tracks. Visible hair tracks are not appealing and make hair look artificial. Be sure to leave some of your hair out before braiding it. The amount of hair you leave out should be kept to a minimum but be enough to hide tracks and blend well into your own hair.

To begin a sew-in weave, your natural hair must be braided. There are two braiding techniques to choose from. Both beehive and straight-back techniques are used for applying sew-in extensions. The beehive consists of your natural hair being braided in a circular direction, starting at the right outermost corner of your hair line. The straight-back technique consists of hair being evenly parted vertically.

Once hair is properly braided, loose ends should be secured. Sew the loose ends of braids into the base of braids so that they do not remain hanging. By sewing loose ends you eliminate their visibility when attaching hair extensions.

Begin to sew hair horizontally from left to right. When reaching the end of a hair extension, tie a knot to secure it. Add as many layers of extensions as you desire. The more layers you add, the thicker your hair will appear to be.

Blend your own hair into the hair extensions. If your hair is thick, consider using a flat iron to straighten your hair texture. Using a thin-tailed comb, make sure that your natural hair covers any sign of a hair extension. Feel free to style your hair any way you like. Human hair extensions can be cut, colored, permed, relaxed and curled.



Fusion Weaves
Strand-bonding or “fusion” techniques have become extremely popular. Fused hair follicles are longer lasting than glue-applied extensions, but they can be equally damaging if not applied correctly. There are several ways to fuse loose hair strands. The most inexpensive way is to take small sections of hair and fuse it together using rubber band bonds. Professional fusing is normally done with adhesives, thermal bonding or cold bonding. All are methods used to fuse artificial hair to human hair follicles.

Glue-In Weaves
Glue-in weaves are the easiest to apply. They do not require you to know how to braid. The only major drawbacks to glued-in extensions are their damaging effects if not applied correctly. Glue can cause your hair to break. Also, if the glue is not removed properly it can cause hair loss. It is best to have someone else glue in your hair extensions. If you do it yourself, be sure to have two mirrors that allow you to see the back of your head clearly. Part hair horizontally and apply an even amount of glue along the extension track. The track of the extension will have thread in it. This will help you identify its location. Place track on the scalp and avoid getting glue onto the hair itself. If you do, don’t worry about it too much because there are glue removers available. Continue to apply extensions hair until you reach your desired level of fullness.

Drawstring Weaves
Drawstring weaves come in a variety of options and give women versatility. They also are not as stressful on hair follicles and can be easily removed because they do not require adhesives. The style that you can achieve using drawstrings can change day to day. Drawstring weaves are available for a variety of ponytails, buns, afros and different hair textures.

Half Weaves
Half weaves are attached using combs, similar to those found in a traditional wig. In a half weave, “half” of your natural hair is revealed and used to cover any detection of the artificial weave piece. This weave option allows greater mobility in style. For example, you may want a swoop bang on Monday, a middle part of Tuesday and a half-up, half-down style on Wednesday.

Custom Weaves
How to create a custom weave using a weave cap, mannequin, glue and plastic wrap:
1). Place plastic wrap on the entire head of the mannequin for full coverage.
2). For extra protection, cover the plastic cap with a weave cap.
3). Glue, using the technique from section 2, step 3.
4). Cut and style hair as you desire.
5). Remove weave cap from the mannequin and allow hair extensions to dry.
Now you can wear your custom wig.

Lace-Front Weaves
As the demand for human hair lace front wigs continues to increase in Hollywood, everyday women are becoming more intrigued because these weaves allow women to disregard their natural hair for four to six weeks.Women with damaged hair or hair loss use lace fronts to give their natural hair a restoration break. Hair growth can develop from the constant wear of lace-front wigs but hair loss around the hair edges or nape area will occur if not applied correctly.This can subsequently cause an unhealthy dependency on lace fronts weaves.

What Kinds of Hair Density are Available for Customers?

We generally recommend light density at the hairline and crown gradually increasing to medium density then medium density throughout the full lace wigs (blended well). Single hair, single knots are considered the best method of knotting producing a tiny knot for each individual hand-tied hair. Two or three individual hairs can be single knotted at one time speeding up the process to the detrimental of creating a larger knot with less aesthetically pleasing finish.

Density is hard to gauge from photos and a lot depends on your hair length, how curly it is, how dark it is, the lighting, etc. The pictures below are of a factory density book (no bleached knots here!) which contains industry standard densities of 50%, 80%, 100%, 130%, 150% and 180%. Looking at our photos page you will see how various densities look in various colors and lengths on our clients.

50% density, or “extra-light”
This is a great density on a lace base with bleached knots.

80% or “light”
Like real hair, it shows a fair amount of scalp but is also a good full young healthy head of hair.

100% or “light-to medium”
Normal density that offers light airy part, Full head of healthy hair.

130% or “medium”
This is only called medium because these names are derived from the ladies wig industry. 130% is maybe okay for a woman who wants her hair to look full and volumnious.

150% or “medium-heavy”
Nice density for a ladies wig, very full and thick, nice density for yaki textures.

180% or “heavy”
The 180% density is a common density for wig industry, many women like hair to look very full, and youthful, the 180% is nice density for woman.

Hair density is simply how many hairs are added to your hair system base. In earlier years, high density was necessary because the base materials were usually made of thicker materials and would be easily exposed if hair density were low.
More recently, with the advance of thinner base materials such as lace and thin skin, low density tends to look more natural especially with the see through look along the hairlines. You can chose different hair density in different areas of the base.

Double knots literally involve knotting hair twice to produce a double knot which provides a stronger, more robust knot. The resultant knots are however even more visible under close inspection. This is a particular problem when trying to create a natural hairline and for this reason most front hair lines should be single hair, single knotted on a flesh tone lace material.
The term hair injection refers to the method of inserting a series of hairs through a layer of polyurethane before coating the underside of the base with a single layer of liquid form polyurethane. Upon setting (or curing) the inserted hairs remain trapped between the two transparent layers.

Hair injection is a relatively new method of hair attachment, becoming increasingly popular due to its natural appearance, free of knots.
After receiving your order, we will discuss its feasibility with your technician. If there is no problem, your order will be sent to our factory.

How to choose the best wholesale wig?

Hair type, quality, length, and color should be considered first when you purchase a wholesale wig. You should also find a reputable wholesaler and ask about minimum orders and return policies before purchase. If you’re unsure of what to look for or what wholesale wigs should cost, visiting retailers could give you a good idea of the quality to look for and what you can expect to pay.

When purchasing a wholesale wig, you should find out what type of hair it is made of. There are two types of wigs: one uses human hair while the other uses synthetic hair. A wholesale wig that is made from human hair will be more expensive, so if you’re on a budget you may find that a synthetic wig is the better option. If you decide to purchase a synthetic wig, ask for information on how to care for it and for safe methods of styling it.

The quality of the wig is another important consideration. Cheaper wholesale wigs may be of a much lower quality than more expensive ones. Signs of low quality include hair falling out and hair of a hard or coarse texture. Another sign of a low quality wig is mesh underneath that is visible through the hair.

The length of the wig is something you should look at as well. Shorter wigs are easier to care for and wear. If you prefer long wigs, keep in mind that the extra hair usually comes with a higher price tag. The length of the wig may also affect how you need to care for and store it.

Wigs could come in a number of colors. Choose one that flatters your skin tone to get a natural look. There are also wigs that come in bright colors. Some wholesale wigs even include highlights.

Finding a reputable wholesaler is important. You could check with the Better Business Bureau to see if any complaints have been filed against a particular wholesaler. It’s also best to ask about minimum orders and how many units you’ll be expected to purchase to qualify for the wholesale price. Some wholesalers offer a quality guarantee and will replace faulty wigs, although you may be expected to pay for return shipping.

If you’re new to buying wholesale wigs, it may be best to visit local retailers to see what’s available and what kind of quality you should look for. Try looking at different brands, price ranges, and overall quality. Getting an idea of what retailers charge for a wig can give you a rough idea of what a fair price should be for a wholesale wig.

History of wig(2)

The 18th century saw elaborate wigs with mile-high coiffures and highly decorated curls. White powdered wigs with long ringlets became the order of the day. In fact, some imaginative ladies had wigs with small birdcages complete with bird, on top of their heads. For wigs, big hair was definitely the in-thing.
Another memorable royal who was known for her elaborate wigs was Queen Elizabeth I of England. Wigs were so widespread that virtually all the elite wore wigs or elaborate hairstyles during this time. It is not surprising that by the end of the 18th century the number of French master wigmakers had skyrocketed from the fashion center of Paris to other European capitols and finally to provincial cities as well. In addition to the guild master wigmakers were thousands of journeymen wig makers and artisans traveling the European countryside producing wigs clandestinely. Eventually, wigs were no longer an exclusive luxury item, an exclusive marker of high birth or a status symbol worn by the privileged few. A shorter, less elaborate wig, called the bob wig, was very popular in Colonial America at the beginning of the 18th century.

The word “wigs”, itself, is taken from “periwigs” which was the name of the particular long, curly wigs that became popular after Charles II was returned to the throne in 1660. Some historian attribute popular fashion status of the periwig to Louis XIII. The periwig simulated real hair and was primarily used for adornment or to cover the loss of real hair. Periwigs became extremely sought after it achieved status symbol. Having become a tradition of the English Court, the periwig is still seen today in modern British courts.

By the end of the 18th century, young men began wearing their hair in a more natural state. Although the powered look and the use of wigs continued, it was not longer a fashion look worn everyday but reserved for older, more conservative men and ladies who were being presented at court. With the civil unrest in France against the excesses of the nobility and the association between fashion, wigs and the aristocracy, the importance of wigs in France also began to slowly fade away during the time of the French Revolution.

The start of the 20th century saw the use of more hairpieces being used to enhance hairstyles. However, wigs have never regained the immense popularity that they once enjoyed.

Everything associated with fashion: hairstyles, wigs, clothing, shoes, handbags evolve. Modern technology has made stylish, chic synthetic wigs within the reach of everyone.

The History Of Wigs (1)

In ancient Egypt, both males and females wore wigs made either from human hair, sheep’s wool or vegetable fibers, depending upon their social status. There were a number of benefits for Egyptians from shaving their heads. First it was more comfortable in the hot Egyptian climate not to have hair. Secondly, a baldhead helped avoid the danger of an infestation of lice, which was a problem at that time. However, it appears that Egyptians preferred having “hair” which resulted in the creation of wigs that gave the appearance of hair. The new wigs also protected the Egyptians’ baldheads from the brutal sun. Wigs became part of daily wear for the Egyptian people indicating a person’s status as well as their role in a society or politics. Women’s wigs were adorned with braids and gold, hair-rings and ivory ornaments making them more stylish than men’s wigs. Ultimately, the more elaborate and involved the wig was, the higher the social rank.

Other ancient civilizations whose citizens wore wigs were the Greeks, Romans, Assyrians, and the Phoenicians. For the Romans, in particular, wigs were often made with hair from slaves. During the Roman Empire wealthy Roman women often wore elaborate hairpieces to greatly increase the volume and effect of the hairstyle.

In contrast, the people of the ancient civilizations in the Far East, including China and Japan, rarely wore wigs except by actors performing in the traditional theaters of China and Japan (Noh or Kabuki) and by certain types of female entertainers such as the Japanese geisha or the Korean Kisaeng.

With the emergence of Christian influences during the medieval era became plainer. By the Middle Ages (1200-1400 A.D.) wigs lost their relevance because of difficult times. Women were usually required to have their head covered, fashion was off everyone’s radar, and beauty was austere. Then, in the beginning of Renaissance (1400-1600) the female hairstyle regained importance and women began showing their hair again. Instead of covering their heads, they adorned their coiffures with lustrous veils and sparkling jewels. Once again women wigs emerged as fashion and beauty became important considerations in society.

The history of wigs in France stretches back to the reign of Louis Xlll who went prematurely bald. To disguise his baldness he began wearing elaborate wigs. Historical records indicate that the first independent wigmakers’ guild was created in 1673. The wig now enjoyed the most noble of pedigrees from the seventeenth-century French courts of Louis XIII and Louis XIV and it became a fashion icon that was integral to the aristocratic world of power and display. The mistress of King Louis XIV wore her hair in a signature hairstyle called the la Fontange. It was a fashion look that was copied and with the help of hairpieces and false locks worn by numerous high upper class “wantabees”. By the end of the Sun King’s reign, wigs had spread well beyond the nobility of France. Kings at royal courts across Europe wore wigs, now a most essential feature of the European noble costume.  –  from WIKI

How to Maintain a Curly Cosplay Wig

Putting together a cosplay costume involves time and effort, so taking care of every part of it, including the wig, means you get to show off your hard work for a long time to come. Maintaining a curly wig calls for some special supplies. However, unless your wig is made of 100 percent human hair, do not use heat-styling tools on it or you may melt the fibers. Instead, use the right techniques on your curly wig to keep it looking great for the next con.

Wear a wig cap under your wig to help keep your natural scalp oils from soiling the wig.

Use products designed specifically for synthetic wigs, such as liquid wig mousse, to take down frizz. Do not use regular hair products, which can degrade your wig. To use the wig mousse, apply a small amount to your hands and work it into the wig, starting at the ends.

Use your fingers or a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle the wig. Do not use a brush, which would ruin the curls. You may shake the wig to keep the curls bouncy.

Store the wig after each use on a wig stand or in a wig storage net. Make sure you store it styled and not folded. Keep it in a cool, dry location.

Wash your cosplay wig only every 12 to 20 wears because each wash shortens the life of your wig and relaxes the curls. Infrequent cosplayers need to wash their wigs only rarely. Check to see if the wig is greasy or has an odor. If so, give your wig a wash.

Fill a sink with a few inches of cool water. Do not use hot water which will relax the curls. Add a tablespoon of synthetic wig shampoo to the water and submerge the wig. Let it soak for a few minutes before gently swirling it around in the water. Soak the wig for a few more minutes in the soapy water.

Rinse the shampoo out with clean cool water.

Lay the wig out on a towel and gently blot it. Do not rub or wring it out. Use your fingers to arrange the curls so they set nicely as they dry. If the curls are tangled, spray a little leave-on wig conditioner over the wig. Work out the knots with your fingers, starting at the ends and working up to the roots. Arrange the curls and let it air dry on a towel.

Tighten up loose curls by wrapping the locks smoothly around sponge curlers. Be careful not to fold any strands of hair or they will set that way.
