10 quick tips for your human hair wig

1. Don’t wear your wig to bed, it can cause hair breakage or mattening, keep it on a wig stand or mannequin.

2. Avoid sea water, chlorinated water or hot water.

3. Use running cold or lukewarm water to wash.

4. Detangle with fingers or wide-tooth comb before washing.

5. Whenever possible, avoid your wig being exposed to direct sunlight, especially when on a wig stand.

6. Be extra careful with light hair colors, they’re more delicate.

7. Wash in 2 steps: apply shampoo first. Rinse, then apply conditioner.

8. Rinse thoroughly after using shampoo and conditioner.

9. Squeeze water gently from your wig. Don’t twist or wring.

10. Air dry on a wig stand or mannequin if possible, if you blow-dry use low heat.

Washing a human hair wig

Generally you should wash your human hair wig once a month. If you’re in a dusty environment you can also wash it twice a month without worries.

Before washing a human hair wig

It is important to remove any tangles or knots in the natural hair before washing.
To do so you can use a so called wide-tooth comb.
It is sufficient though to gently comb through the hair using just your fingers. This even is the preferrable method for any type of curly wigs since combs can lessen the curl effect over time.
If you decide to use a comb we generally prefer to use a steel or metal comb instead of plastic combs.

Example of a metal wide-tooth comb

When combing the hair you should start at the bottom and then moving your way up to the base in smaller steps. You will feel that any entanglements are easier to remove this way than when you brush down from head to tip. It will also prevent the wig from shedding.

Don’t stretch your wig when you comb. Feel when you meet any resistance and work through it slowly. Take your time!
Don’t worry about a little hair loss when combing, it is perfectly normal.

Washing a human hair wig

Take your wig off and hold it under cold to lukewarm running water.
We suggest to do this in the shower. If you choose to do it in a sink take care to avoid any tangles that you just removed.

Start with using a small amount of mild shampoo, about the size of a cherry. Rub the shampoo in your hand until it becomes foam.
Don’t rub or massage the foam into the natural hair to avoid breakage, just distribute the shampoo evenly from top to bottom.
Take care to not apply the shampoo to the base or lace of the wig. It can loosen the knots and cause hair loss.

Afterwards, rinse the shampoo with running water. You can apply some of the soapy water inside of the cap to clean it.

Always use cold or lukewarm water at most since water that is too warm can abet split ends. After all your wig is made of actual human hair and will behave accordingly.

Conditioning a human hair wig

After you washed out the shampoo and your wig is still wet you can move on to applying a moisturizing conditioner.
Use the same amount of conditioner as you used shampoo and start allocating it evenly on the hair. Just like the shampoo, avoid applying the conditioner to the scalp of the wig.

Leave the conditioner in the hair for about 5 minutes before untangling it once more (as described here).
Afterwards you can rinse the conditioner from your wig with cold running water.

Drying a human hair wig

Now that you’re done with the washing you can dry your human hair wig.
To do this gently, squeeze the water from the hair before you carefully blot it with a towel. Don’t wring or twist it in the process.
If you want to blow-dry, make sure to use low heat but we generally advise against blow-drying because it can favor new tangles.

Once the excess water has been squeezed out you can choose to apply some shine oil. Doing this will not only add a healthy shine to the natural hair but also help to keep it moisturized and protected.

Do not comb your wig right after washing, rather wait until it dried off.

The best way to preserve the fibers of the natural hair is to let it dry on a wig stand or mannequin. They come in all shapes and colors, any of them will do.

Styling a human hair wig

After drying you can apply styling tools like curling, flat irons or electric rollers.
It’s a fantastic feature that you can style your wig according to your daily needs.

However, to keep your wig in the best shape possible we advise to not use any such tools too often but instead to buy the style you like right away.
It’s always a good idea to keep a straight and a curly wig around if you like to rock both styles. First of all, it rids you of the daily styling hassle plus it keeps each wig in a better and healthier shape longer.

At we offer many different styles and types of human hair wigs.

If you do decide to use styling tools, avoid excessive heat styling. While black hair is more resilient than colored hair in this regard, excessive heat styling can still cause damage. We suggest to use a heat protectant spray and keep the heat at a low to medium setting.

Another option, especially if you’re not sure how to go about the styling, you can always visit a salon which can provide you with creative ideas on what to do with your hair.

Remarks for blonde/colored wigs

It’s worth noting that bleaching hair to achieve 613 blonde can be a straining and exhaustive process, as it involves stripping the hair of its natural pigment. For this reason, it’s important to take proper care of blonde wigs to keep them looking their best. The same is true for colored wigs in general.

To start, you should avoid over-washing the wig, as this can strip the hair of its natural oils and cause it to dry out. Instead, aim to wash the wig every 7-10 wears or as needed.

Here are the basics to consider when taking care of colored wigs:

Use a sulfate-free shampoo and cool water: Colored hair is more prone to fading and damage than black hair, so it’s important to use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo and cool water when washing the wig. This will help to preserve the color and prevent the hair from drying out. Avoid exposure to chlorine or other harsh chemicals.

Avoid heat styling: Heat styling tools like flat irons and curling wands can damage colored hair and cause the color to fade. Colored hair is more sensitive in this regard than black hair. Use a heat protectant spray and keep the heat at a low to medium setting.

Use a color-protecting conditioner: To help preserve the color of your wig, use a conditioner specifically formulated for colored hair. This will help to keep the hair moisturized and prevent the color from fading.

Keep in mind, with proper care, your blonde or colored hair wig can last for years and continue to look beautiful and vibrant.

The different variations of our human hair wigs explained

Different types of real human hair wigs. We offer 4:

All our wigs are made from 100% real natural human hair and a single donor:

• Common lace wigs (8 styles, 10 to 30 inch, 7 different laces)
• Headband wigs (8 styles, 10 to 30 inch, headband closure instead of laces)
• Machine-made wigs (8 styles, 10 to 30 inch, wig cap instead of laces / optionally with bangs)
• Bob wigs (bob cut, 8 styles, 8 to 16 inch, 4 possible laces)

Our common wigs are (as the name states) the most common and popular option. They are what you mostly see in use. However, we offer alternatives that can save a buck.
Headband and machine-made wigs are naturally cheaper since they don’t use a lace like the standard or bob wigs do. The lace is what gives a great hold of your hair but ultimately makes the wigs pricier as well.

Different styles of human hair wigs. We offer 8:

Straight Styles

• Silky Straight
Silky straight wigs (sometimes referred to as Bone Straight) have the most natural condition of human hair. The very straight strands distinguish Silky Straight from Kinky Straight wigs, which are very slightly curved.

Wavy Styles

• Body Wave
Body Wave wigs have a natural pattern to create a soft and natural looking wave. The Body Wave is a loose curl resembling a wave pattern. However, the curl is a bit tighter than its partner in crime, the Loose Wave.

• Loose Wave
Loose Wave wigs have huge wavy curls. They’re comparable to Body Wave wigs with one main difference. The curl of the Loose Wave is not quite as tight and (as the name suggests) a bit more loose than Body Wave.

• Water Wave
Giving an unconvential offbeat look, Water Wave wigs are one of the hottest trends among ebony women. Because of its ocean-wave-like shape, the style name basically established itself. With its curl pattern positioned in one direction it provides a bit more volume than the related Deep Wave wigs.

• Deep Wave
Rather similar to Water Wave wigs, Deep Wave generally looks a bit more “shy” than its counterpart and guarantees a dreamy amorous look. Deep Wave hair also runs a bit flatter and therefor has an improved ability to hold stylings for long periods of time.

Curly Styles

• Afro Curly
Afro hair typically resembles a “Z” shaped pattern with strongly defined curl arrangements and a high density. It’s a big and fluffy hairstyle with lots of natural movement.

• Kinky Curly
Kinky Curly hair has a torsion twist where the hair strand turns around. The torsion of kinky hair is basically the strand twisting around itself in a zigzag pattern. It’s naturally dry and spongy in texture.

• Jerry Curl
This hair type has a wet/glossy appearance and is generally very distinctive due to its bold voluminous display. The Jerry curl was worn by Michael Jackson on the cover of his hit album Thriller.


Different laces / closures of human hair wigs. We offer 10:

• 4×4
• 5×5
• 13×4
• 13×6
• T-Lace
• 360
• U-part
• Headband wig (+ freebie headband)
• Machine wig (No lace)
• Machine wig with bangs

We don’t offer 13×1 closures since they have proven to not offer a strong hold and are not very popular because of this. We want happy customers and chose not to offer 13×1 inch laces for that reason.

Different lengths of human hair wigs. We offer 12:

• from 10 to 30 inch for Common, Headband and Machine-made wigs
• from 8 to 16 inch for Bob wigs

Different colors of human hair wigs. We offer any color you like:

As a standard we offer black, blonde, colored, highlighted, layered and triple color wigs. The black hair is also called “virgin hair” which simply means the human hair wigs haven’t been colored or bleached.

An overview of the coloring options we offer by default:

Wig coloring options

What are the differences between the wig color styles?

613 Blonde

For blonde wigs we use Pantone 613 (see image below). Pantone is the name of a standardized color matching system and “613” simply defines the blonde color in that system. Blonde wigs are made by bleaching out the pigments of the natural hair at first before adding the blonde color.
613 Black/Blonde is a layered option with black roots.


Our colored wigs provide a consistent single color (unicolor) look from top to bottom.


Highlights are lightened or colored strands in certain areas to create contrast, depth and dimension. The different shades are mimicking the look of highlighted natural hair.
For example, our Highlighted Black Caramel wigs (#11) with light brown hair woven throughout are creating a subtle, sun-kissed effect.


Our layered wigs are comprised of black roots and a colorful finish. While the top remains as black unprocessed natural hair it slowly blends into the desired color.

Triple Color

The same as layered wigs with the only difference that the natural black roots blend into two different colors throughout the length of the wig. Overall three colors are represented in triple color wigs.
