Hair on toupees or hair systems sticks up or gets tufted sometimes, especially with human hair toupees, such as those made here at New Times Hair. Some types of Asian hair used for toupees are the sturdiest on the planet and pretty hard to tame.
With the help of this 1.5-minute video tutorial and a detailed post, we will show you the correct steps to taming the most impetuous hair on a toupee or hair system. It’s not hard at all.
Firstly, let’s comb the hair. Hold the hair roots and start combing from the middle of the hair to the tips. Avoid pulling against the scalp.
The comb or hairbrush doesn’t have to be wide-toothed as long as the tooth gaps are not too narrow and the hair can’t get through.
Then comb the hair roots after combing the middle and tip. Repeat this process till all the hair on the base is through and free of tangles.
Washing and Shampooing
Rinse the hair under running tap water.
Be sure not to use hot water, which may damage the hair or cause shedding. Ideally, use lukewarm water to rinse it, as it softens the hair system, making it easier on the hand.
Rub and pat the hair while rinsing until the hair system is thoroughly wet; apply toupee shampoo to the hair, rub and knead it, wash thoroughly, and then rinse all the bubbles under the tap water again.
After the hair system is thoroughly rinsed and free of bubbles, apply toupee conditioner to the hair, ensuring every single strand is nourished.
Comb the hair again with the hair conditioner on. Make sure all the hair on the base is thoroughly combed.
Again, rinse the hair system with lukewarm tap water.
Keep rinsing until all the hair conditioner is off, and gently squeeze it dry.
Dry the toupee with an absorbent towel (preferably 100% cotton) by dapping, tapping, and pressing till the hair is damp.
Then install the toupee on the client’s scalp or put it on a toupee stand to blow dry it. Make sure you always use cold air when blow-drying a hair system.
The toupee or hair system should be 100% dry by now. We believe no single strand of sticking hair is pestering you for independence. They are all tamed. You can style it now. All yours! Good luck!
