Hair System Tips: Avoiding Shedding

Hair System Tips: A Comprehensive Guide
  • When it comes to V-looped and injected hair systems, whose hair isn’t knotted to the base, steer clear of wet brushing, especially after a hot shower, as doing so may pull the hair off. Keep those locks lustrous and shed-free!
Hair System Tips: A Comprehensive Guide
  • Cutting or styling the hair after attaching the hairpiece, don’t pull hard on the hair strands, and avoid using hair clippers. Instead, use scissors to avoid shedding and keep the hair intact.

Hair System Tips: Avoiding Tangling

Hair System Tips: A Comprehensive Guide
  • Use a wide-tooth comb to brush curly hairpieces, especially those with small curls such as kinks, yaki curls or Pacific curls, when the hair is completely wet or dry. Comb the hair gently and slowly – do not pull or rake it.
  • After washing, it is better to let the hair air dry. If you must use a hairdryer, curl the hair with your hand, following the direction of the original curl, while blowing it, as this will help retain the curl style.
  • If the hair is particularly long, you should divide the hair into several segments. Comb gently from the hair tips and gradually work your way up.
  • Consider sleeping on a silk or satin pillow. This will reduce friction, which is a significant cause of tangling and breakage. Never sleep with wet hair, as it will likely result in tangling.

Hair System Tips: Hair System Removal

Hair System Tips: A Comprehensive Guide
  • Spray or brush hairpiece remover to where it is bonded to the scalp. Wait a few minutes, allowing the solvent to soak and dissolve the bond. When the hairpiece is loosened up, start peeling it off.
  • Start peeling from the back, working your way up and forward to keep the front hairline intact. If you or your client is wearing a full-cap wig, we recommend peeling the temples first and then starting again from the back.
  • Please be careful not to pull too hard when removing a poly or skin hair system, as it could potentially tear the skin base.

Cleaning tips

Hair System Tips: A Comprehensive Guide
  • Wash the hair system at least once a week. This is particularly important for customers who often style their toupee hair with spray and hair wax. But be careful not to wash it too frequently as it can lead to dehydration.
  • One thing to note when washing the hair system is that you have to make sure that all glue, shampoo, and conditioner is thoroughly rinsed out. If any of these remains at the roots, will corrode the roots and the hair will start to go soon.
  • Don’t rub the hair too intensely while washing it. Instead, use a vent brush or a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle it. Make sure you brush the hair in a uniform direction.
  • Ensure the water isn’t too hot or too colde – lukewarm water is the best.
  • Remember to use hair oil or conditioner to nourish the hair.
  • Again, please wash the hair replacement system regularly; don’t wait until the hair tangles up, as when this happens, it will be hard to wash, and the hair will be prone to shedding.

Quick hair system tip: If your client is used to keeping a hair system attached on his head for over a month between salon visits, then a skin or lace base will be more suitable than a mono base, as with mono bases, the hair roots are more easily corroded by sweat, glue, and hair sprays.

Hair System Tips: Drying

Hair System Tips: A Comprehensive Guide
  • First, press down on the hair system.
  • Always use a hairdryer with caution. Do not overuse a hairdryer on one particular area of the hair and do not have it set to a high temperature as this will damage the hair and cause hair loss. This is especially true for synthetic hair systems. High temperatures will actually straighten synthetic hair and if the temperature is too high, the hair will burn and end up with small curls. So, keep synthetic hair away from high temperatures – that includes hot water.
  • We always recommend air-drying the hair and pat drying it rather than rubbing it.

Preventing color change from sunlight and hair dye

Hair System Tips: A Comprehensive Guide
  • Hair is made of protein, and UV rays will denature the protein. If you spend a lot of time outside, then you should expect the hair of your hair systems to fade faster than normal and for human gray hair to turn yellow, so you should avoid unnecessary direct UV rays on your hair systems. That makes synthetic gray hair a better option if you are concerned about the impact of sunlight, as synthetic hair will not change color.
  • You also need to be aware that if you dye the hair of a hair system that has gray human hair, you will also end up dyeing the gray human hair. Again, synthetic gray hair would be the better option in this case.

Quick tip: Avoid excessively treating the hair, such as over-perming and over-bleaching it.

Preventing damage from chlorinated or salt water

Hair System Tips: A Comprehensive Guide

Chlorinated or salt water is known to damage hair systems so if you often go swimming, we suggest using either a swimming cap or a suitable protection spray.

Another useful tip for attachment

If you find the skin or PU doesn’t stick, you can wipe the section with alcohol, and then you will find it can stick again.

Initial hair issues to be aware of:

  • You may find some minor hair loss when you first brush the hair. This hair that falls out is known as “excess hair” (hair that wasn’t knotted to the base but blended with the rest of the hair). This is perfectly normal, and you needn’t worry about the hair’s quality or how it was knotted. Once you have brushed the hair a second or third time, there won’t be a problem.
  • When you wash the hair system for the first time, you may notice a slight color fade. This is also perfectly normal. This is also the case for our hair when we dye it, and after washing the hair two or three times, color fading won’t be an issue.

If you find there to be an issue with your hair system after receiving it, please get in touch with us immediately. If necessary, you can send the hair system back to us for repair, but please send the hair system within 30 days of receiving it. If the hair system is worn for a long time, it will be difficult to identify and fix the problem. For more information, please check our Return Policy on our website. Thank you.

● What hobbies and interests do you have?

I enjoy exercising. That’s a very important part of my life. I’m a super active person.

● Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

No, not that I know of. I’m a very realistic person. If you mention outlandish stuff like aliens, monster in the bush, I’d be out of my mind.

● What is something you would love to do in the future?

I want to learn how to swim. I know it might sound a bit sarcastic, as I just mentioned that I enjoy doing exercise. Unfortunately, swimming hasn’t been on my list. I think I better catch up on that.

● What wig would you wear if you wore one and why?

I’d give HW1 a try. It looks natural and beautiful. Though we categorize it as a medical wig, almost any female can wear it. It’s got a lace mesh base, breathable, and flexible. You don’t need glue or tape to fix it to your head. Pretty easy, and it gives you all the long hair look a girl could want.

  • How would people in the office describe you?

At our end-of-year conference, my colleagues agreed that I’m a warm hearted, positive, and easy-going teammate. It gives me a sense of reward.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I don’t like being confined in a very small space. I believe it was due to a childhood experience. When I was six years old, I accidentally tripped and fell into a shallow well. I had to wait for two hours before I was found. Since then, I’ve found I just can’t tolerate the idea of being alone. I guess that makes me an active team player.

  • You are happiest when…

This may sound boastful, but it’s true. It’s just part of my nature to help others. When I actually see that what I did for them has helped them achieve something, it just makes me excited.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

I recomend HS25V. Oftentimes I’d introduce this model to my new clients to start with, so they can introduce this to their new clients see if hair systems are what really suit them, before they carry on with lace or mono hair systems.

I’m into so many things. All the popular stuff you name: Swimming, badminton, running, all for keeping me in good shape.

  • How would people in the office describe you?

They keep calling me “pretty Winni pretty brainy.” I’d take that as a compliment. I’d say I’m generally pretty fast in term of thinking and figuring out solutions. My teammates often turn to me for help, too. And It turned out that most of the time my ideas worked for them.

  • Do you have any pet hates?

I’m a typical town girl, you know. I’m into cats and dogs. But things like snakes, all sorts of insects, and hamsters; they are not my cup of tea. So, never get them near me.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that?

Most of my clietns are after Q6. And their clients happened to be guys who are into hair systems that are durable and natural. Q6 is a pretty good pick for them. With proper care, it should easily last 6 months.

I’m always fascinated about an exotic lifestyle. I really wish I could travel a lot, go to many different countries, and try their local gourmet food, and get in touch with the locals to actually have a feel of their culture.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I’m always afaid of heights. With any tall buildings, be it a chimney or TV tower, I look at it, and imagine I’m looking down right from the top, it will give me sweaty palms.

  • Do you have any pet hates?

Not at all. I generally love all pets. Dog, cats, guinea pigs, rabits, etc. I love them.

  • Do you have a favourite quote?

When you feel tired,it means you are walking uphill. I believe this quote as a truth that gives me a lift whenever I’m down. I believe there’s no gain without pain. Without trying, we can’t achieve anything.

  • Which men’s/women’s hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

With me personally, the best-selling hair system has been HS1. It has what it’s required out of a good quality hair system, in terms of a natural-looking hairline, undetectable scalp, etc. Most wearers and salon owners are familiar with it. Plus, all our clients have faith in the quality of this hair system. According to their feedback, this is an easy-to-attach, easy-to-maintain hair system for both men and women.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I don’t know why I share the same gene with Doraemon. I’m scared of rats. I’m a 6’3″, but I hate rats; seeing one really freaks me out.

  • Which men/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

New Australia. When it first came out in early 2023, it made me top of sales. I think most wearers like it because at the design statge, our experts considered all possible aspects people could want from a hairpiece, such as a natural look, a level of comfort, and affordablity; it’s similar to lace, but most wearers can afford.
