How to Choose a Human Hair Wig
When choosing a human hair wig, it is important to find the right style and color for you. You should also consider the quality of the hair and the construction of the wig. Some wigs are made with synthetic hair, while others are made with real human hair. Many people are drawn to real human hair because it is soft, more natural and can be styled easily.
Additionally, you may also want to purchase a wig cap that will help hold your wig on your head if you have thin or thinning hair. This is especially helpful for women who have very short hair or whose hair has grown thin due to the use of chemotherapy or alopecia medications. Some women wear a wig cap every day, while others only wear it when they need the extra security.

So, if you want to make sure that your wig stays on securely and looks great in all of your photos, keep some wig caps on hand.

Can you wash a human hair wig with regular shampoo?
Some people may wonder if it is possible to wash a human hair wig with regular shampoo. The answer is yes, you can. However, you will need to use a little more shampoo than you would normally use and you will need to be a little more careful when rinsing the wig. The main reason for this is the human hair in the wig absorbs the shampoo and is likely to become saturated. This means it will be harder to get the shampoo out of the wig.
Instead of using regular shampoo, you should try using a deep conditioner. This will help to loosen up any dirt or residue that has settled in the wig and make it easier to rinse out. If you are still having issues with frizz, try pre-washing your wig and using a heat protectant to protect the hair.
To make sure that your wig stays on while you are wearing it, it is best to secure it in place with an elastic band. This will keep the hair from falling into your face or around your neck. Many wigs come with a Velcro strip in the back for this purpose. If the Velcro is sewn onto the wig, it can be difficult to cut if you decide to change your hairstyle.
Use a clear elastic band, such as those used for braces or glasses, to secure the back of your wig. If the elastic is too thick, it will not fit through the holes in the front of the wig and will be visible around your head. You can also sew the elastic strip onto the inside of the wig cap.
