What is the difference between machine-made and hand-made wigs & hairpieces?


The main difference between a handmade wigs made of natural virgin hair with cuticle intact and in same direction, and one that is machine made and bought off-the-shelf is the fit.If a wig does not fit right and exerts excessive pressure at certain points, the hair follicles at those points will die and hair will never grow back. So I recommend wigs that don't hold them tightly against the scalp. Very few people realize that everyone's head shape is very different and sizes vary considerably.

Machine-made wigs are usually cheaper than hand-made pieces. In most styles the hair are machine sewn onto a “weft” in a fixed pattern. The wefts are then assembled together on an open net base. Generally this type of construction is worn by persons who have some hair, as you can see through the wefts when the wind blows.

Hand-made methods involve hand knotting on a net base or hand inserting into a custom molded base. Hand construction methods usually provide a more random and natural appearance. Most hand knotting or implantation process is tedious and very labor intensive. On some hairpieces, there are over 140,000 individual hair shafts that need to be inserted. There are a wide variety of price and appearance options. The way a wig is made affects how it looks just as much as the type of hair used. T

There are three different types of wig constructions: custom made, hand-made ready to wear and machine-made.

Custom-made wigs are almost undetectable from natural hair. They are the usually the best viable option for hair loss patients, but they are expensive compared to readymade wigs and generally take from two / three weeks to a few months to complete.

Hand-made wigs look the most natural of the readymade choices because individual strands are knotted on to a net base rather than wefts of hair being sewn together. These wigs can be parted and styled with accessories because there is no chance the vents will be exposed. The hair also falls and moves more naturally.

Machine-made wigs are the least expensive and most widely available. Wefts of hair are sewn together in a straight line, cut and assembled into a wig. When you look inside a machine-made wig you can see the lines. Many look extremely realistic as long as they are not parted, pulled back or otherwise altered. Some people find these wigs more comfortable because the construction creates vents that allow air to circulate to the scalp.


How are hand made wigs or hair pieces constructed?


Hair is attached to the wig base with “ventilating needles.” Ventilating needles come in various sizes and have small hooks at the end designed to pull a specific number of hairs from the hair bundle and insert them into the base material. The needles with the smallest hooks will pull one hair shaft at a time. Larger hooks can pull up to 6 hair shafts at a time. Single hair shaft knotting or implanting looks the most natural, and is also the most expensive.

The single shaft method duplicates the pattern of growth hair and provides the most natural looking results. The multi-shaft implantation can be less expensive, but may be less natural looking, especially at the part line or crown. When hair is knotted the knotting varies over the surface of the base to duplicate that of growth hair on the scalp. Special techniques are often used at the front hairline and the nape of the neck depending on the style of the hairpiece.

Also, the more natural, the less durable, and vice versa. But with durability, you have to sacrifice some naturalness. That is why our wigs / Hair System material is chosen to be perfect balance of the both. We generally wait for at least a year before we start using any new product or material that is available. We do our own trials first and only when we are satisfied we use new products on our clients.

How long does it take to get delivery of a new wig?

We only make customized made to measure wigs on order. We do not have ready to wear wigs available in stock with us normally. However sometimes the sample pieces that we have fit the clients requirement then we can give it to them immediately.

The making of a wig for a new client can take two or three visits.

The first is for consultation when we show samples,understand client requirements, explain in detail how we make the wig and decide on hairstyle and color. At this time, we take accurate head measurements if the client wishes to go ahead to make the wig. If the client places the order then we make the base cap for the wig.

The second visit is for the base captrial of the wig for an exact fit. In case of patients who are unable to travel due to health reasons, they can skip this visit.

The third visit is for hairdressing session and delivery. The wig will be cut and styled after we show the client how to put it on and teach them with the appropriate method of attachment. We offer a full cutting and styling service but clients have the option of using their own hairdresser for them to cut and finish if so desired. We recommend that you get it color matched to your own hair by getting your stylist / colorist to color it exactly.

It is possible to produce a wig in extremely urgent circumstances of illness or distress in less than one week, but in most cases, it is best to give us around two weeks. PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE AN EXTRA CHARGE FOR ANY WORK REQUIRED WITHIN ONE WORKING WEEK. This is only possible if we will able to complete the order depending upon the workload at that time.

We charge Rs.1500/- (in advance) for the initial consultation but the Consultation fee is deducted from the final cost if the client places order to make the wig. Clients are requested to book appointments & be punctual so that sufficient time can be given for the consultation to be carried out properly, with complete satisfaction to achieve the best results.

We are caring, and respect your privacy hence we make sure that there are no other clients around by spacing out appointments as normally people who suffer from hair loss due to medical conditions prefer privacy.

Due to our privacy policy and space constraints we permit only one person to accompany patients within our premises.

How much does a wig cost?

We are upfront about our prices, never afraid to answer to this question and will not avoid the subject. A basic short length ladies wig starts at around Indian Rupees 7500/- and goes upwards.

The price of our custom made hand knotted full wig varies according to Cap size,Cap construction, Hair type (Indian hair, European hair, etc.),Hair length, Hair density and above all on how much intricate work has to be done.The more expensive the wig, the more lightweight, supple and well-fitting the cap, which moulds perfectly to the head.We work to a standard, not a price, and we never make false promises that may not meet your expectations.

The less hair a wig has, the more time it takes to make than a dense hair wig. All our wigs are handmade with highest quality virgin human hair with cuticle intact and in same direction from root to end and, therefore, do not tangle. This type of hair is most expensive but will remain in good condition for much longer than decuticlized hair. It can also be heat styled and colored to match to your own hair color or highlighted / low lighted easily. We are able to offer color matching and can get hair in straight, curly or wavy forms and in varying degrees of thickness and texture.

The cost increases depending on the length, color and hair type, but there are no hidden extras and the basic price includes cutting and styling initially when you first take delivery of your wig and a second one within two weeks after that in case you want any minor changes. We do this because in order to get the exact cut the wig may be possibly cut too short. We prefer to leave the hair a little longer so you can get used to it and if needed trim it up later.I generally prefer to cut the wig on the clients own head as that gives a perfect idea about the final look. I assure all clients that I am conservative in my cutting and no one is used as a subject for my own artistic creations.

We charge Rs.1500/- (in advance) for the initial consultation but this fee is deducted from the wig cost if the client places an order to make the wig / hair replacement system in the following two weeks. Washing, styling and color costs are given based on the type of wig. The wigs can be washed and conditioned regularly, following the guidelines, which will be explained to you. We offer a complete after-sales facility including the opportunity for the wigs to be brought to us for washing, styling, coloring and refilling of hair as and when it is needed. We instruct the clients on how to wash their own wig at home and get the appropriate wig block, brushes etc. to enable them to do this. Once we have made for a client, the details are on record and it is much easier to make further pieces. If you send us your used wig or hairpiece, we can make a similar piece if not an exact copy of it.

Caution – Do not waste your money on cheap wigs. Although the price may be tempting, you will only get what you pay for. Many cheap readymade wigs are mass produced by inexperienced unskilled wigmakers as opposed to being crafted by highly skilled experienced wig makers who hand tie each individual hair strand to the wig base.Such type of cheap wigs requires repeated refilling of hair as the density of the hair reduces after use due to shedding of hair due to incorrect knotting or breakage of hair due to tangling and the net base becomes visible. Refilling of hair repeatedly means incurring additional cost. So effectively such wigs tend to cost more in the long run. This cost is not considered when buying a wig which may be cheaper initially but you end paying more during the period of use. A well-crafted custom made wig like the type we make usually takes 40 to 100 hours( four to eight working days ) for one person to make and takes the donor years to grow the hair used in these wigs.

Does Allure Hair have a return policy?

We had a return policy earlier but due to abuse of our previous return policy by clients, we do not offer refunds on custom orders since they are 100% custom made to your measurements and specifications. Your hair style, color and size is unique to only you and will not be easily interchangeable with anyone else. Therefore, this is a custom made order for you and we will not offer a refund under any circumstances. Constructing a wig can take anywhere from 40 to 100 man hours depending on type, and very expensive hair and base materials are used. This is too much time, effort and money for individuals to purchase our wigs only for temporary use. Selling a restocked wig is also difficult. So we give no refunds on custom orders.

How many wigs / hairpieces do I need?

It is always necessary to have a back-up wig / hairpiece regardless of the type of wig you choose. Those who wear a wig daily for more than 10 to 11 hours should definitely have two wigs.Factors such as sweating, pollution and humidity will contribute to the frequency of washing. Sweat at the net base if not cleaned properly and bad hygiene can lead to skin problems like fungal infection of the scalp. Not only can you wash one while you wear the other, you can be sure to have a fresh one for special occasions.

Sometimes an unforeseen situation may arise and cause problems that a professional will need to fix. While it is being repaired, you will need an alternative hairpiece to wear. Though human hair wigs can last from 1 to 4 years, they require periodic repairs during their lifespan. Repairs may take up to two to three weeks. Your back-up wig / hairpiece will allow you to have peace of mind and feel comfortable in any situation.

Many clients prefer to alternate styles and colors – adding versatility to their wardrobes. Owning more than one wig can add fun and creativity while allowing you the freedom to change your look to match your mood as per the occasion.

How long will the wig last and does it come with any kind of warranty?

Allure Hair wigs / Hair System life span is dependant on customers own care, wear and other conditions out of our control. Our wigs are made to last for 12 months with regular wear. However, if clients don't take care of the wig or hair system, they won't last just like anything else.Our wigs do not come with a Warranty. Every piece is inspected carefully before sending to the client. As we have no control over the quality of care a client gives to the hair once the wig is in their hand. We cannot force clients to keep the hair clean, not to chemically process it or do anything damaging. We do guarantee that the base will not fray for a period of 6 months. If it does, we will repair it free of charge within that period.We fully back our products with our guarantee, but please remember that proper care helps to prolong the life you can expect from our wigs / Hair Systems.We do not offer any warranty for the results of a chemical service performed on a wig after purchase by your stylist / Colorist.

We have plenty of wigs with us which were made over 10 to 12 years ago which we still use for our own work in the media. These wigs are well looked after by us hence they last very long.

Can I sleep with the wig on my head?

Absolutely not. Allure Hair does not recommend that. The wig is likely to tangle during sleep. It will also lose its styling and you will have to dress it before wearing again. Matter of fact, some like the fact that they don't have hair in their face with they sleep. Be as confident with your family as you would be alone.

Why do I notice tangling at the back of the wig?

Tangling at the back of the wig is usually caused due to the friction of the hair against other objects such as leaning against the sofa, a chair, a head rest in a car, or against a pillow. The friction causes the human hair damage which will eventually cause it to tangle. To help to prevent the tangling, be sure to brush out all of the tangles before washing. Apply a conditioner or detangling solution to the hair after washing and be sure to rinse well. The use of a satin pillow case will help to reduce the damage to the back of the wig. If you find that you are leaning against a sofa or chair, it might be helpful to place a satin cover on the back of the sofa or chair.

Can wigs / hairpieces be made with clients own hair?

Yes definitely. I make wigs with clients own hair if the patients contact me well before the first chemotherapy treatment and if it is in good condition & chemically untreated.

We cut/shave off the hair directly from the client's head and meticulously hand tie your hair in exactly the same area from where it was originally removed strand-by-strand on to a light and durable base cap.

Hair that has been bleached / over processed is not usable. I can only use hair longer than 12 to 14 inches from your own hair. Short hair is of no use for the wig. We may have to add 30 to 60 % of our own hair if your hair is not sufficient. As the major cost of making a wig is the cost of the hair itself, patients can save 25% to 40% on the cost of the hair used for making the wig. This is an important fact that Doctors and medical counselors should inform the patients. This fact is also not revealed by most wigmakers.

As most patients are aware that hair loss is going to happen, be prepared and order your wig well in advance before the first chemotherapy treatment. Custom-made wigs or hairpieces take 2 weeks before they are ready. Most patients are expected to lose their hair but still have a faint hope that it would not happen to them. However, hair starts to thin and fall out in the three-week period after the first chemotherapy. Hair loss can happen suddenly, although it is usually more gradual and begins within two or three weeks of starting treatment.

The hair thins and falls out once chemotherapy begins so rather than wait for your hair to fall out and be thrown away use it to make your wig.I recommend having your hair shaved before your chemotherapy treatment starts rather than wait for your hair to fall out . As the scalp may become dry and tender it may not be possible to shave the hair once chemotherapy begins. Please note that hair has to be stored in the same direction that it grows i.e. from roots to ends. Hair that is collected after it has fallen off or swept off the floor is not usable as it will tangle.

In case patients have friends or relatives who have long hair similar to their hair type and would like to donate their long hair for your wig then I can use that as well.

When should I order my wig if i am going to lose my hair because of treatment ?

Losing hair from your head, face, or body can be hard to accept. Feeling angry or depressed is common and perfectly all right. Because hair loss is such an emotional experience (for men as well as women), spend some time getting used to the idea of yourself without hair. The idea is to figure out how to maintain a positive body image after your hair is gone. For obvious reasons, this is easier to do before you lose your hair. At the same time, keep in mind that it is a temporary side effect. Talking about your feelings can help. Get your wig or hairpiece before you lose a lot of hair. That way, you can match your current hair style and color. Take your wig to your hairdresser or wigmaker for styling and cutting to frame your face if it is not already done.

Cutting your hair: You may want to make an appointment to have your hair cut short. This approach provides you with an emotional way between having a full head of hair and none at all. If all your hair comes out, it's easier to manage losing short hair than long — for a while, anyway. And if only a little of your hair ends up falling out, the hair that is left will look thicker and fuller if it's short. It's less traumatic to lose short clumps of hair than long ones —and it's easier to fit a wig over less hair.

Hair falls out in single strands and in clumps. Once it starts coming out, hair will be on your pillow, on your collar, on the floor and in your shower.There are patients who do not touch their hair but as the hair loss increases the hair becomes entangled with hair that was still securely anchored within the follicles. I explain to them that they would feel more comfortable and there would be less chance of infection if the matted hair that were under tension were removed or shaved off. The elimination of uncontrolled hair fall and embarrassment of shedding generally helps. Frankly, it's a complete mess — such a mess that you may find yourself dialing your hair stylist and asking for an appointment to have your head shaved. Shaving facilitates prosthetic hair security and comfort i.e. two way tape and other adhesives for hair prostheses.

If you suspect that you may weep while having your head shaved, I can schedule the appointment in complete privacy and then wear your wig before leaving. Keep in mind that you are not the first person to undergo this type of procedure, and you will not be the last.I am happy to do what I can to help you through this difficult appointment.

Another way to make the transition easier is to start having fun with your hair now, before you begin treatment. If you've ever wanted to experiment with a different style and color, now is the perfect time. Have you always wondered what you would look like in a shorter style? Go for it! That way, when you do transition to a wig you will feel free to continue experimenting with new and different looks.

Could a wig cause damage to my scalp, or slow my own natural hair growth?

No, absolutely not. Wearing a wig will not harm your scalp or inhibit new growth.During the period of shedding it is best to keep the scalp clean by shampooing as normal, as hair may become entangled as it falls away from the hair follicles. Shampooing does not increase the hair loss but makes the scalp feel more comfortable and, when the hair starts to regrow; the scalp is also in the optimum condition. The other reason that the hair or scalp should be shampooed regularly is that, if you decide to wear a hat or wig, then the scalp has a covering of sebum (sweat) and this can leave the surface sore along with an odour. In fact, a wig will make you feel better and more confident about your appearance, while helping maintain body heat and preventing overexposure of your sensitive skin during this time.You may also find there is an in-between period when your hair is growing back but you aren’t quite ready to go out with your own hair. You may choose to wear a wig or other headcover until your hair is longer. Most women choose to wear their wig until their own hair has grown enough to style and shape and they are confident of moving around with their own hair.

How long will it take for my hair grow back after chemotherapy?

If you had chemotherapy, here's a general time table:

* two to three weeks after chemotherapy ends: soft baby fine hair

* one month after: real hair starts to grow at its normal rate

* two months after: an inch of hairHow long it takes to grow back a full head of hair (and pubic hair, lashes, and brows if you lost them too) varies from person to person.The hair growing back is often a total different texture kinky and dry and length (very slow growing. )It's quite common for hair to grow back differently after radiotherapy or chemotherapy treatment. There are several reasons why it happens.
When hair is damaged by radiotherapy or chemotherapy, the weaker hair follicles are destroyed completely whilst the stronger ones often recover. In most people, this means that hair on the top of the head thins more than hair at the sides - the same pattern you see when people go bald naturally for other reasons.

Although it may look as if it is all one colour, most people's hair actually contains several different hair types - this is why real hair tends to have more depth of colour than artificial wigs. Everybody has some hair that's finer than the rest - this is the first to grow when we're babies, and it's often the last to go. Because some hair types are stronger than others, some people's hair will actually change shade after treatment. This doesn't mean that something has colored it, but just that differently colored hair strand follicles have died out.

Hair is often kinky after radiation treatment because, when the body is irradiated, it does not affect the body unequally. This means that follicles can be damaged at one side but healthy at the other. When they create hair, it's squeezed out at an angle, making it curl. While it could be straightened by pressing with hair straighteners, this is likely to damage fragile hair further. The hair is likely to stay the way it is, at least in terms of its thickness and shape. However, there's no reason why it needs to stay dry. What it needs is proper nourishment to produce healthier hair in the future. Improving your blood circulation will help more nutrients to reach your hair follicles, so try to get more exercise and make sure you eat a healthy diet.To overcome the nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system. You can also try gently massaging your scalp with coconut or olive oil (avoid citrus oils, as they can dry the skin more). Try not to wash your hair too often and never wash it without using conditioner. You may never be as happy with it as you were before your illness, but it's still worth bringing out the best in it.

Generally, the hair most likely to fall out is the hair that tends to grow back the fastest. The hair on the top of your head grows faster than your eyebrows or eyelashes.

Your new hair may be just like your old hair, or it may be thicker and curlier, or straighter, than your original hair. And your hair might grow back a different color. Women who dyed and processed their hair might not remember what their hair was like originally and may be surprised by the new natural color and texture. Eventually, your hair usually goes back to the way it used to be after the effect of chemotherapy on the hair follicle wears off. Within 4 to 6 months after your treatment ends, you should have a good head of hair.

Very, very rarely, permanent baldness occurs after many years of strong chemotherapy: Hair follicles get shut down, so there is no new growth. Remember, this situation is extremely rare. If you are one of the very, very few women who remain bald, you may mourn your hair for quite a while. But you can become an expert on what to do to make yourself feel attractive, and help other women deal with their new loss.

Will medical insurance cover the cost of a wig?

Wigs ( CRANIAL PROSTHESIS )are not covered by medical insurance in India though they are a side effect of a remedy for treatment. Your emotional well-being is an important part of your medical recovery process. They are treated as a cosmetic item. Insurance coverage for clients with medically related hair loss is available in many countries. If a person requires a wig while or after receiving therapy for Alopecia or cancer, they are eligible to receive reimbursement from their health insurance plan.Wigs are covered, in part or totally, by health insurance abroad.Most insurance companies abroad will cover from 80% to 100 % of a cranial prosthesis.

Contact your insurance company and ask if they cover “cranial prostheses” (wigs) required due to medical hair loss, how much they cover, and what documentation they require. There should be a section under covered expenses related to prosthesis, prosthetic devices or medical durable equipment. Though a wig and a cranial hair prosthesis are similar the “wig” should be called “cranial hair prosthesis” for insurance purposes.Cranial prosthesis’s are different from ready to wear fashion wigs in quality, performance, and service. Prosthesis’s are made of specialized material, for individuals with severe hair loss.

You will need to get a prescription from your doctor for a cranial prosthesis. Request your doctor to write a "PRESCRIPTION" for "CRANIAL PROSTHESIS".

Notify us about your medical need for alternative hair and we will also mention it and send you an invoice and receipt for a cranial prosthesis.
Enclose a letter to the insurance company stating the necessity of a prosthesis.Detail the emotional effects that your medical treatment has had on your life. Discuss the financial aspects of frequent cranial prosthesis purchases (if applicable). Mention that a prosthesis is just as medically necessary as a prosthetic limb or breast - it replaces a missing body part - hair, as well as counteracting the psychological distress secondary to alopecia.

If your insurance company denies insurance coverage, you can appeal.

Never file an insurance claim for a wig. Always call it a CRANIAL PROSTHESIS.

If you don’t have insurance contact government hospitals or NGO's. There are various NGO's who offer medical assistance in most states for individuals who meet certain income guidelines.

These are guidelines only. Always follow the procedures stated by your insurance company so you can obtain the fullest benefits possible. Individual insurance companies may have other or additional steps to complete.

WE DO NOT PROCESS INSURANCE CLAIM(S) OF ANY KIND at present.

What is the difference between a wig and cranial prosthesis?

A wig is a artificial covering of human, animal or synthetic hair worn on the head for personal enhancement, for cultural or religious reasons, for fashion or various other aesthetic and stylistic reasons, as part of a costume by actors to help them better resemble the character they are portraying, or to conceal hair loss or baldness. A ready machine made wig has a set style - what you see is what you get.

A cranial hair prosthesis is a nonsurgical hair replacement solution specifically designed for medical hair replacement applications for those suffering from hair loss due to alopecia, side effects of chemotherapy treatments, and variety of other medically related hair loss situations. Unlike an off-the-shelf wig, prosthesis is custom made to fit the clients head is sturdy and durable and exactly duplicates the patient's hair to what it looked like before the hair loss occurred. . Precise head measurements are taken and real human hair is selected to match the hair texture, color, density, part and hairline. Often variations of the hair color are blended for a more natural appearance. The hair is hand tied onto a base material that resembles scalp. The base, which is breathable and very comfortable, is attached with a semi-permanent bond. From that point, it is just like your own hair, to wash and style as you wish. The cranial prosthesis gives you a totally natural appearance. Your result is a full, lush head of hair that looks real because it is real.

Can I use heated styling tools on my wig?

The use of heated styling tools like hair drier,curling tons, straightening irons should bedone used with extreme caution. Excessive heat will cause permanent damage to the hair strands. Blow drying the hair on a cool or warm setting of the hair dryer also helps to reduce damage to the human hair used in wigs or hair prostheses. Just as naturally growing hair will be damaged by heat, a human hair prosthesis will damage over time with the use of the high setting on hair dryers, curling irons, and flat irons. This will extend the life and eliminate any unwanted damage to the wig.

Can I sleep wearing a wig?

Many times women find it tedious and prefer to sleep wearing the wig. I always recommend that you do not sleep in the same wig that you will be wearing during the day. There are several options for sleeping if you prefer a wig instead of a scarf or turban. The use of an older prosthesis that has been worn during the day that needs to be replaced due to the hair thinning or general wear is a solution that can extend the use of your wig. Each time that you replace your prosthesis that you wear during the day, the older one can be worn for sleeping at night.

When caring for the prosthesis that is worn at night, it is suggested that each morning you brush all of the tangles from the hair. This will help to keep the hair from matting and frizzing. You will find that if the hair is not brushed each morning, it will become extremely difficult to remove the tangles. The few minutes that you spend taking the necessary steps to care for the prosthesis will extend the wear, appearance, and comfort that you will experience on a daily basis. It is very helpful to use a silk or satin pillow case to prevent friction, tangling and excessive damage to the hair.

The prosthesis should be washed and conditioned at least once a week when it is used for sleeping. Each time before washing the prosthesis, brush through the hair to remove any loose hairs. The loose hairs can also cause tangling when washing. Once the hair has been washed and conditioned, be sure to rinse the inside of the cap thoroughly to remove the build up of any excess shampoo or conditioner. A build up residue of shampoo or conditioner on the inside of the cap can cause itching of the scalp. The hair can then be placed on a wire wig stand or over a tall bottle to air dry.

If preferred, you can use a very thin cotton liner underneath the wig for comfort. A clean soft cotton liner can be used each night to reduce the build up of oils from the scalp on the inside of the cap.

Other option a less expensive human hair wig that is light weight. A lighter density of hair will be cooler and more comfortable for sleeping.

I am having difficulty in wearing a wig. Are there any suggestions for making this easier?

In the beginning, you may find it uncomfortable so try to wear the wig for only 1 or 2 hours at a time during the day. You can gradually increase the wearing time as it becomes more familiar.

If the cap seems to irritate your scalp, you can wear a thin cotton liner made of muslin cloth (mul mul cloth) underneath the wig. Trim them to a shape smaller than the base of the cap and wear under the wig. Be sure to leave the areas exposed to your scalp that will provide security of the wig so that it will not slide around or shift. If the wig has an elastic adjustment, check to see if the circumference is too tight and that you have the best possible fit.

Try removing the wig and wash your head with cool or warm water several times a day. Heat is lost through the top of the head and this is helpful especially on warm days. Be sure to rinse your head well if soap is used. A residue of soap can cause the scalp to itch.

The area just behind your ears near the occipital bone can be very sensitive for some women. If the wig rests on this area or is too tight, then it can cause headaches. Sometimes adjusting the wig in this area can make a huge difference in comfort.

How do I keep the wig from itching of the scalp?

If you are experiencing discomfort and itching while wearing your wig, there are a few suggestions that might be of help.

When washing the wig, it is extremely important that you rinse all the shampoo from the wig thoroughly. If there is a residue or build up of the shampoo, it can cause irritation to the scalp. Be sure to rinse the inside base of the cap since this is the area in contact with the scalp. The same procedure of rinsing the inside of the cap applies when using a conditioner.

Another idea that might be helpful is to remove the wig after a few hours or wearing everyday and clean your scalp with a damp tissue or napkin. You can also rinse with water if needed. You will find that this will refresh your scalp and remove any oil build-up that is on the scalp. To do this on a regular basis will prevent oils from building up on the inside of the cap which can cause itching.

Many times with a hand-tied wig, the strands of hair will come back through the base. This can cause itching as well. Careful combing and brushing will help to prevent this from happening Also, it is important to follow the care instructions of the manufacturer of the wig. This will also help to prevent the hair from coming back through the cap of the wig.

Can I sleep wearing the wig on my head?

Allure Hair does not recommend that you sleep wearing the wig. You should remove the wig before sleeping as it is likely to tangle during sleep. It will also lose its styling and you will have to dress it before wearing again. Sometimes women find it tedious and prefer to sleep wearing the wig but most people prefer that they don't have hair on their face with they sleep.  Be as confident with your family as you would be alone. You should preferably wear a scarf or a skull cap while sleeping.

In case due to some reason you have to wear the wig and sleep then I always recommend that you do not sleep in the same wig that you will be wearing during the day. There are several options for sleeping if you prefer a wig instead of a scarf or turban.  The use of an older prosthesis that has been worn during the day that needs to be replaced due to the hair thinning or general wear is a solution that can extend the use of your wig. Each time that you replace your prosthesis that you wear during the day, the older one can be worn for sleeping at night. 

When caring for the prosthesis that is worn at night, it is suggested that each morning you brush all of the tangles from the hair. This will help to keep the hair from matting and frizzing. You will find that if the hair is not brushed each morning, it will become extremely difficult to remove the tangles.  The few minutes that you spend taking the necessary steps to care for the prosthesis will extend the wear, appearance, and comfort that you will experience on a daily basis. It is very helpful to use a silk or satin pillow case to prevent friction, tangling and excessive damage to the hair. 

The prosthesis should be washed and conditioned at least once a week when it is used for sleeping. Each time before washing the prosthesis, brush through the hair to remove any loose hairs.  The loose hairs can also cause tangling when washing. Once the hair has been washed and conditioned, be sure to rinse the inside of the cap thoroughly to remove the build up of any excess shampoo or conditioner. A build up residue of shampoo or conditioner on the inside of the cap can cause itching of the scalp. The hair can then be placed on a wire wig stand or over a tall bottle to air dry.

If preferred, you can use a very thin cotton liner underneath the wig for comfort.  A clean soft cotton liner can be used each night to reduce the build up of oils from the scalp on the inside of the cap.

Other option a less expensive human hair wig that is light weight.  A lighter density of hair will be cooler and more comfortable for sleeping.

I am having difficulty in wearing a wig. Are there any suggestions for making this easier?

In the beginning, you may find it uncomfortable so try to wear the wig for only 1 or 2 hours at a time during the day. You can gradually increase the wearing time as it becomes more familiar.

If the cap seems to irritate your scalp, you can wear a thin cotton liner made of muslin cloth (mul mul cloth) underneath the wig. Trim them to a shape smaller than the base of the cap and wear under the wig. Be sure to leave the areas exposed to your scalp that will provide security of the wig so that it will not slide around or shift. If the wig has an elastic adjustment, check to see if the circumference is too tight and that you have the best possible fit.

Try removing the wig and wash your head with cool or warm water several times a day. Heat is lost through the top of the head and this is helpful especially on warm days. Be sure to rinse your head well if soap is used. A residue of soap can cause the scalp to itch.

The area just behind your ears near the occipital bone can be very sensitive for some women. If the wig rests on this area or is too tight, then it can cause headaches. Sometimes adjusting the wig in this area can make a huge difference in comfort.

How do I keep the wig from itching of the scalp?

If you are experiencing discomfort and itching while wearing your wig, there are a few suggestions that might be of help.

When washing the wig, it is extremely important that you rinse all the shampoo from the wig thoroughly. If there is a residue or build up of the shampoo, it can cause irritation to the scalp. Be sure to rinse the inside base of the cap since this is the area in contact with the scalp. The same procedure of rinsing the inside of the cap applies when using a conditioner.

Another idea that might be helpful is to remove the wig after a few hours or wearing everyday and clean your scalp with a damp tissue or napkin. You can also rinse with water if needed. You will find that this will refresh your scalp and remove any oil build-up that is on the scalp. To do this on a regular basis will prevent oils from building up on the inside of the cap which can cause itching.

Many times with a hand-tied wig, the strands of hair will come back through the base. This can cause itching as well. Careful combing and brushing will help to prevent this from happening Also, it is important to follow the care instructions of the manufacturer of the wig. This will also help to prevent the hair from coming back through the cap of the wig.

Can I get an exact match of Human hair every time I order from you?

Often a hairpiece or wig may not match (exactly) the feel, texture, or natural wave pattern of one that you have owned before. Because human hair is not a machine manufactured product (such as synthetic fiber hair), human hair varies tremendously from the thickness of the hair strands (meaning thicker or thinner denier hair strands) to straight, wavy, or curly.There is no way to ensure an accurate match. Every person has certain differences within their hair. 
Also, the longer the human hair lengths, the more costly; the closest to original virgin human hair the hair is, the more expensive and valuable. There is a lot to take into consideration when purchasing a human hair products for ones self. (e.g.) naturally grey silver shade of human hair is the most expensive; you might be shocked as to how much it will cost just to buy the hair itself no less having it made into a wig or piece; it is almost an impossible product to buy!
Because of all the above variations in human hair being used to make wigs and hairpieces, it is important to remember that a reasonable quality control of techniques used in it\'s processing is very very crucially important.

This is why Allure Hair has a reputation for producing a constant quality human hair products.
