Keep your cool

Hair state. If you don’t change it- it will not work! Whether that’s from wet to dry or hot to cold your hair needs to change it’s state if it’s not naturally curled to perfection. Whilst wet to dry curling is far more kind to your hair, it’s very time consuming and if not perfected, can also provide some overly dramatic results- which you end up correcting with heat anyway!  All you need to do is make sure when you’ve curled a section of hair with a roller or with tools you let it cool. The heat transferred to that hair section from the styling is what will cause the strand to change shape. Letting the hair cool whilst remaining in this shape will help your hair to set in place, staying much curlier for longer. Simply hold the coiled/curled hair in place and pin to the roller or head using grips and pins.  Once your hair is fulled cooled you can release those beautiful curls!


    Product? What product?

Your curls need some help along the way, so lend them a helping hand by applying some of the right products.  Remember when using any heat tools it’s so important to use a good heat protector- especially on hair extensions and wigs! They don’t receive the daily dose of essential oils from the scalp like your natural hair so they need all the protection from the damage they can get! After a good spritz of heat protection, a light mousse when wet or a light spray of hair spray will help to hold for longer. The rule is the straighter your hair pre curling – the stronger hold you will need from your product.

The higher the quality the better the curl. Good quality tongs and rollers will not only last for a long time but will ensure your curls do too.  Buy cheap – Buy twice, thrice etc etc. Investing in a good quality tool will ensure the damage to your hair when styling is lessened by curling quicker and more effectively. You will quickly realise even the straightest hair beauties can achieve that full bouncy style.  The size of the barrel is also key to achieving those bouncy, beautiful curls. Some people opt for the largest barrel or roller in an attempt to acheive super model curls but this look is best achieved with a 1” – 1.5” barrel, cooling the curls and then brushing out- TA DA!

Condition is key

Even the best tools and prep won’t be able to stand against damaged hair. If you’re still finding it difficult to curl and you’ve followed all the steps- your hair needs some TLC.  Ensure your ends are trimmed and tidy, free of those troublesome split ends. Applying heat in it’s current fragile state won’t help the matter, it will worsen it. Ensure you hair isn’t too heavy with regular trims and thinning and make sure behind the scenes you are giving it the love it deserves! That way when you’ve brought it back to life the curls will last all day!

A crucial first step to reviving your hair, now you might be faced with a big bundle of weave an want to attack it from all angles with force- DON’T! This hair is in a vulnerable state and needs your careful attention and patience at this stage. Using a wide toothed and or a tangle teaser , gently start working through each piece of hair from root to tip. You can even add some conditioner or a Extra Virgin olive oil and luke warm water mix to help create that lubrication you need to slide through the hair when combing out. Be patient with larger knots and use your fingers to try to remove the severe tangles before attempting to brush or comb. Continue throughout your bundles until all hair is tangle free and move onto the clarifying rise!

ACV and Rinse

Apple Cider Vinegar. Your saviour for removing weeks/months of build up you had no idea about. Build up is one of the most common causes of matting , tangling and breakage so this stage is key to reviving those bundles! Soak your bundles in a diluted mix of apple cider vinegar and water, this will work as a deep clarifying agent removing build up. If your bundles are still installed, add the Apple Cider Vinegar mix to a spray bottle and apply liberally to your head and leave to sit for as long as as you can- we recommend 45 mins to 1hour!

Now it’s time to rinse that from your hair, using a clarifying shampoo that will also aid in the removal of any build up remaining. There are a variety of great inexpensive high street brands to choose from, so pick your favourite and apply.  Be sure to be as gently as you were at the de-tangling stage, you hair is even more vulnerable when when , which means any vigorous scrubbing will lead to more tangles and breakage. As you rinse you will see dark colour running from the hair, this is all the build up leaving your locks and a sign of success! lather rinse and repeat until the water runs clear from your hair.

This next step can be skipped if you are happy with your hairs condition but for those seriously tired bundles we recommend using a silicon mix to revive your hair even more. After washing the hair as above, towel dry and massage in this wonder product. Leave on from 2 to 3 minutes depending on the conditions of the hair. Rinse out fully. TA DA! Thank us later.



Deep Condition

Now your bundles are squeaky clean but lacking some serious moisture after all that cleansing! Another crucial and essential step to bringing the life back to your hair; Deep conditioning- never skip this step! Applying a deep conditioning treatment opens up the cuticles and penetrates deep into the hair strands to bring back that supple, soft , bouncy hair from way back when! We recommend any moisture based conditioning treatment like the high street ones below. In small sections , ensure that the hair is saturated with the conditioner and use a wide tooth comb to distribute the product from root to tip. Let your hair sit with this treatment for at least 30 mins. For an additional burst of conditioning power , if your hair is not installed , leave over night in a plastic bag or place in a plastic bag and pop in the microwave for 45 seconds – 1 minute. DO NOT follow this step if you have attached clips to your hair.

How to apply a wig

‘ How do I apply my wig? ‘ 


Probably one of our most frequently asked questions; How do I apply my wig?  

Wigs can transform your style in an instant, they can be fun and bright or natural and beautiful. Whether you need a wig or you just want a complete new look, the application of the wig can be tricky. This post hopes to help anyone looking for some helpful advice and a few tips and tricks for applying their wigs to make them comfortable and look as natural as possible.

Wig type

There are two types of wigs: Human hair and Synthetic, each wig type has its its key benefits, so knowing what you want out of a wig first is key to making the correct decision. There are also three types of wig cap construction: Full lace, Front lace & Capless.

The Full lace wig is constructed from a full lace cap and the hair sewn individually throughout. This gives a fully natural hairline that mimics your natural hairline throughout, meaning it’s easier to style as it can be freely parted and is easier to style. The full lace also allows for much more comfort than the other two, it breathes more as it is full lace. 

The Front lace wig is made with only a lace front instead of a full lace design. It gives that natural looking hairline against the forehead but the cap is made from a stronger, more durable material across the whole head. 

The Capless wig is constructed with rows of weft hair that have been sewn together to form a cap but do not have an actual underlying cap, they do not blend to the hairline as naturally as the others but are less expensive.

Prepare your hair

This is probably the most important stage to ensure you have the most comfortable and secure fit to your wig. Your hair needs to be styled so there are no bumps, lumps or uneven places once you’ve secured your wig in place. All your natural hair , whether it be long or short needs to be secured correctly so that it’s not visible through/under your wig. Wig caps are 

Short hair; comb back from the hairline and fix flat to the head, fix with bobby pins.  

Long hair; Section the hair down the part and separate into two. Twist each side, cross behind your head and pin flat against your head with bobby pins. If the hair is very thick and full it can be braided down or you can use 1 inch pieces , twist and fix with bobby pins flat to different areas of the head.  The flatter the hair to the head, the smoother surface to apply your wig and the more natural the final look and feel. 

Now it’s time to apply the wig cap, this can be a net cap or any coloured nylon cap.  A net cap is a slightly more breathable option but a nylon cap works just as well at keeping that hair flat. Stretch the cap over your head an line it up perfectly with your natural hairline, making sure any stray hairs are concealed beneath the cap. Secure the cap in place with additional bobby pins. 

It is optional to use an adhesive wig/ toupee glue or tape to fix the lace front or full lace wigs to your head. Using adhesive may take some extra care and attention but if done correctly can ensure your wig is strongly secured. 

Preparing and placing the wig 

If you are working with a full or half lace wig, cut the lace to match your hairline. Make sure you don’t cut too much off and disrupt the natural hairline of the wig. Leave a little bit on the edge so it can be placed/glued/taped to your head in a natural looking way. Place you wig over your head and gently lay it down on the scalp, making sure the wig is centred. If an adhesive is being used make sure the sides are kept away from this until you are ready to stick down. 

Securing the wig

Your new wig needs to be secured even if you haven’t used an adhesive. Once the wig is placed where you feel it fits/looks best. If adhesive is used, Once you have your wig where you want it, use a fine toothed comb to gently press down the front edges of the wig. If you’re using a lace wig, make sure the lace areas are smooth against your head, making a natural hairline. Once the front half of your wig is secure, wait 15 minutes for it to set. 

If you are not using an adhesive and your wig cap is fitted with grips, use these to slide into your hair tightly to hold the wig in place. You can also use bobby pins wherever you feel needs extra hold, just make sure when placing these grips they are not visible for the most natural look.

Style and go!

Once your wig is fitted correctly , it’s time to style. Cutting your wig before you apply it can make the wig look even more natural as it frames the face.

Human hair wigs can be straightened, curled and even dyed by a hair professional as they are 100% human hair and behave just like it.  If you have a synthetic wig, you can use a low heat setting hot tool but frequent use of tools and styling products on synthetic pieces will cause the wig to lose its lustre quicker.

Looking after your human hair wig and extensions

blog 1


Looking after your human hair wigs and extensions can be a daunting task as lace wigs and hairpieces are an expensive investment. To ensure that they last long, you must ensure that you give them the necessary care. Remy hair has undergone processing to achieve particular textures and colours, so it’s important to care correctly for your wig or hairpiece. As a human hair product both wigs and extensions still need to be treated as if they were your own hair with some extra care and attention.

Below are a few tips and tricks on how to properly care for your lace wigs and extensions, we’ve got you covered #bestie !

Cleaning care

Knowing how to correctly care for your hair in terms of washing  is essential for ensuring longevity of the hair. The right techniques can ensure that you are getting the absolute best out of your hair!

Step 1. DETANGLE – This is probably THE most important step to ensure minimal breakage and shedding due to tangling during the washing process. Remove all tangles from end to roots, this can be done with fingers for light tangles or with a soft brush or comb. Start at the bottom to ensure you are not putting too much stress on the hair. If this step is ignored it can prove impossible to brush the hair later and could cause serious pulling/snapping damage.

We recommend a tangle teaser for ensuring your hair is at its best before washing. These are also handy to keep with you on the go to tame any wild hair during the day! Get yours here

Step 2.  SHAMPOO– Fill your sink/basin or bowl with lukewarm water, never hot! The heat is extra stress on your hair and can cause hair textures and colours to loosen or fade. Add your chosen shampoo to the water and lather to a bubbly consistency. Immerse the hair or wig into the water and DO NOT rub , simply let the water and shampoo cover the hair as if you were soaking a delicate fabric.  Leave the hair or wig to soak in the shampoo for 5 minutes before rinsing. This will loosen any stubborn build up on the hair, repeat this step if when rinsed you feel their is still some debris build up remaining.

We recommend the amazing clarifying shampoo from Moroccan oil, Clarifying shampoo is highly recommended because it helps with frizz, shine and tangles:


Step 3. RINSE & CONDITION– This step requires a jug, simply rinse the hair using cold water from root to tip. It is VERY important that you always rinse the shampoo off with the flow of the water following that of the hair fibre- root to tip! Again, NEVER use hot water as this will loosen the texture of your hair and or fade the colour.  Apply your chosen conditioner in the direction of the hair fibre and let the hair sit for a further 5-10 minutes. Repeat the rinsing process until all product has left the hair.

Why not try the specialised Balmain conditioner especially for human hair wigs and extensions:


Step 4. ALWAYS AIR DRY– After rinsing the hair, or wig should be placed flat on a towel and the excess water should be dabbed away. Once dabbed dry, any conditioning/oil sprays can be applied with a light spray motion over the hair,  this will ensure any oils lost during washing are replenished. Never allow hair or fibre to become dry and brittle, as this will cause breakage but be careful not to overload the hair to prevent product build up.

We recommend any argan/ coconut or macadamia oil sprays, a particular favourite of ours is

Finally, leave the hair to completely air dry either lying flat on the towel or resting on a wig stand, never blow dry lace wigs after being washed and rather allow to dry naturally. This will cause drying of the wig, and that may lead to increased breakage.

Turn down the heat

Just like the hair attached to your head, the exposure of hair of wigs and extensions to direct heat should be minimalised.   The heat damages the hair ends and this may lead to the drying out of your cuticles. Remember this hair isn’t receiving any of the natural oils that yout natural hair would so it is much more susceptible to damage!

Due to this, it’s better to refrain or minimalise from using heat styling tools and if you can try not to use hair dryers at all! However if you feel that you simply couldn’t get by without the use of a few heated rollers, using the straighteners or curling wand then using a thermal protection spray or serum will help reduce any heat damage to the hair.

Gently does it

Wigs and hair extensions need some extra care when it comes to brushing and taming!

Kinky curl textures are the only texture we recommend you detangle with your fingers and with a light shake, as any brushing can damage and frizz the texture.

Most other textures in both wigs and hair extensions  need to be combed out generally just the way you do to your natural hair. When combing the hair  you should be extra cautious, although the hair is generally secured in the base of the wig or weft of the extension, you should be cautious because sudden force may dislocate or loosen it from the base.  

To prevent this, ensure that you begin brushing the hair to the top from the ends, while ensuring that you don’t get too close to lace base.

As mentioned we can’t recommend the Tangle teezer enough! You can even grab a pocket travel size  for popping in your bag when you are on the go to tame those tresses during the day!  Keeping the hair cuticle in a sleek smooth condition will help reduce any tangles that can cause breakage and shedding later on!
