To add curls to the hair without using heat, simply separate the hair into workable sections and use rollers to add waves. Ensure the wig is wet and take the roller and a small section of hair and wrap the hair around the roller, starting at the bottom. Use a spray bottle to add water to hair in order to keep it damp, and use products such as setting spray, in order to encourage the style to hold for longer.
Once the rollers have been added to the hair, leave to dry naturally. Take the rollers out just before you are ready to wear the wig and give it a good spritz of hair spray, and a shake before you put it on.
If you plan on using heated curlers to style your hair, it is important to check your human hair wig is heat product friendly and to remember you should not use heated styling products within an inch and a half of the root in order not to cause damage to the wig.
Ensure the hair is completely dry before curling to prevent the hair from becoming singed or frazzled from the heat. Take your curlers and place them on the lowest heat, before working through the hair in sections. If you wish to create a dramatic curl, after curling each section use a roller to hold the curl as you work through the rest of the hair – this will create a much tighter “ringlet” style curl – once the hair is all curled remove the rollers. For a looser curl, simply curl each section and spray with hair spray and for loose waves take a wide tooth comb through the hair after curling.
Straight hair wig
It is essential to check that your wig is “heat safe” before using any heated styling products such as straighteners or curlers. If you are going to use heated products on your hair it is important to remember not to use them too close to the root – doing so could melt to bonds holding the wig together and ruin your wig.
Instead, start working the hair from the bottom up. Separate the wig into sections and carefully comb the lower part of the hair, before straightening the ends, never reaching more than an inch and a half from the root of the wig with the straighteners.
Once you have completed the process over the whole wig, use a wig friendly serum to hold the style and keep hair looking shiny and healthy.
