How to Maintain a Curly Hair System

Hair systems with naturally curly hair can be very unpredictable when customers are trying to create a certain style. Curly hair can sometimes get very fluffy or frizzy. That’s why we have come up with a few maintenance tips that you can share with your customers: 

Use a hair system stand

If the customer attaches their hair system on a daily basis and removes it at night when they sleep, they should not cast aside their hair system carelessly. On the contrary, it should be put on a hair system stand to keep the shape of the hair. If the customer has not used their hair system for a long time or they have several units at home, it would make sense for them to put their hair systems in sealed bags because if hairpieces are exposed to the air for a long time, the dust in the air will make the hair messy.

Comb or brush correctly

1) For a curly hair wig, it is better to use a wide-tooth comb, especially for small curls, like kinky curls, yaki curls, and Afro curls. Comb the hair gently and slowly – do not pull or rake it. If the hair is relatively long, you should divide the hair into several segments. Comb gently from the hair tips and gradually move up. Don’t only comb curly hair with a comb as your hand is also a good substitute. Generally speaking, you can use your fingers to simply brush and style your hair.


2) Never brush or comb the hair when the hair system is still wet. Otherwise, the curls will come apart and the hair will become frizzy. Alternatively, use your fingers to comb the hair gently. Be careful with synthetic grey hair as it can tangle very easily if it becomes frizzy.

Wash the hair system correctly

1) Wash the hair system at least once a week. This is especially true for customers who often use hair spray and hair wax to style their hair system. The way to wash a human hair wig is actually as simple as washing your own hair.

First, soak the hair with warm water. This process only takes a few minutes, then add a soft shampoo and conditioner to wash the hair. It is important not to be rough when rubbing these products into the hair. Allow the water to go through the hair and gently rinse out the shampoo. Make sure the hair is flowing in one direction to prevent any tangles.


2) Rubbing, scrubbing, swirling or piling your hair on top of your head while shampooing can be disastrous for curls. This type of manipulation leads to tangles you don’t even want to think about! If the hair is already tangled or snarled, don’t brush it directly with your fingers. Instead, learn to apply a conditioner or hair oil to dry hair before washing.

First, divide the hair into several sections and work the conditioner thoroughly into the hair. Leave it on for at least 20 minutes, then use a rat-tail comb to separate the tangles. Next, wash the hair with shampoo to clean it, after that, apply hair oil or conditioner again to further protect the texture of the hair. One thing to note when washing the hair is that you have to make sure that all shampoo and conditioner are washed out. If there is any conditioner remaining on the hair roots, the roots will gradually corrode and the hair on the wig will shed more and more quickly over time. Again, please wash the hair replacement system regularly; don’t wait until the hair knots before cleaning it.


3) After washing, press the hair with a soft towel to absorb the excess water. Remember don’t use the towel to rub the hair. The hair should be left to dry naturally in a well-ventilated place.

Try to use hair oil regularly

Hair conditioner and hair oil are two completely different things. Hair conditioner can make hair smooth after washing, but not make it strong. Hair oil, on the other hand, can not only make hair smooth but can also nourish hair and repair its texture. Use hair oil every one to two weeks and your hair system will last much longer.


Stay away from high temperatures

1) Don’t use hot water to wash curly hair; warm or cold water will suffice. Some people like using a hairdryer to dry their hair since it can make the hair fluffy and give the hair a good shape. However, customers should be reminded that the hair on the wig is already dead and as it doesn’t have a constant supply of nutrients, high temperatures can reduce the natural moisture of hair by 2% to 3%. Such a reduction makes the hair fragile, destroys the fibrin of the hair, and makes the hair dry and rough. The hair will also lose its vitality and luster, so try not to use a hairdryer to dry the hair system. Let it dry naturally.


2) Don’t do any secondary styling. For curly human hair wigs, the hair has already been treated with acid, bleached and undergone high-temperature dyeing and perming. The hair quality is, therefore, not as healthy nor as strong as raw hair. It cannot withstand more chemical processing; otherwise, the lifetime of the hair system will be greatly shortened. The same goes for synthetic hair wigs because the material of synthetic hair is not easy to dye and high temperatures will make it melt.

Use a soft silk pillowcase


If you wear a hair system in bed, a silk pillowcase needs to be used. Rough, cotton pillowcases can cause the hair to tangle and frizz. A silk pillowcase, however, will help to keep the curls sleek and will help to keep their shape.

● 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.

  • Tell us an interesting fact about yourself other than your qualifications, your job.

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.
