Human hair is not intended to wear out of the box, styling is required.


Whilst not wearing your human hair wig or hairpiece we recommend it is stored on a wig stand to help maintain shape and style. Remove all hair which is caught underneath the clips before storing.

We recommend brushing your human hair wig or hairpiece with a Chiquel brush starting at the very ends and working up towards the mid-lengths. Do not use force on the lace or silk bases as this could cause damage. Hair can tangle simply due to friction and wear throughout the day. Knots not detangled could cause damage or cause hair to shed.


Chiquel recommends washing human hair wigs and hairpieces every 7 -14 full day wears. Depending on contributing factors like exercise, climate and lengths of time wearing the hairpieces this may vary from client to client.

Please remove all hair from the clips underneath and detangle all knots from human hairpiece prior to washing as detangling knots in wet human hair can cause damage to the hair and base constructions.

Hold your human hair wig or hairpiece in an upright position in a basin so that all of the hair is falling in the one direction. Completely saturated the piece while running under cool water.

Place a small amount of Chiquel’s recommended shampoo into the palm of your hands and then distribute evenly throughout the hair in one direction working from roots to ends. Do not rub shampoo vigorously.

Rinse all of the shampoo out while running under cool water in one direction. We recommend shampooing hairpiece twice to cleanse and add moisture.

Remove excess water and place conditioner from root to tip making sure all of the hair is covered. Allow to penetrate for a few minutes before rinsing under cool water, in the same way as previously.

Place wig or hairpiece gently in a towel and remove excess water.

For a deep conditioning treatment, we recommend a moisture mask to be used.

Place on a wig stand for overnight drying in preparation for styling. We highly recommend a moisturising serum product to be used daily or when required.

We highly recommend for your piece to be air dried first then using a heat protector spray before using any styling tools. Please use low heat and Do not put any direct heat from hair dryer directly on scalp of piece this can cause hair to fall from it.

We recommend high-quality styling tools which Chiquel use for straightening and curling, as they do not cause tension on the hair resulting in snapping or hair being pulled from the base. We also recommend to move the parting of the hair from time to time. As keeping the part in the same position with constant daily brushing of the part can cause hair to fall from that one area.

To secure a full wig for heat styling we recommend holding in place with a chin strap.


Human hair piece are made from natural hair so they will still respond to the elements like our own hair with fading in the sun and also heat styling. We highly recommend having the colour refreshed every few months to keep the hair looking vibrant and in the best condition.

Human hair regardless of whether our own hair or hair in a wig or hairpiece will still require maintenance in ways of cutting to keep the ends in good quality. 


The wearing of headwear over the top of a wig or hairpiece can cause friction to the hair which can result in the matting and loss of hair. We do not recommend, but only on minimal occasions.

Exercising and sleeping in your piece can also cause hair to matt, tangle or pull hair through to the underside of the base due to excess sweating and friction. If hair has been worn in a hair-up style including with soft pins, clips, combs or hair bands, we recommend brushing and restyling to restore the hair. The base is very delicate so we don’t recommend using pins against the lace base as it can cause tears and holes.

Chlorine or salt water damage our natural hair so it is not recommended to swim in chlorine or salt water with your wig or hairpiece but on a rare occasion. In case you do, we recommend placing a generous amount of oil through the hair as a protective barrier. And to shampoo, treat and restyle immediately after swimming.

The applause is perfect for my needs. With a little trim here and there it looks like my normal former hair of twenty years ago. The color was a little too light for me and I used non permanent medium cool brown to darken it a little more. This is my second piece and it's perfect with the addition of small metal clips as in a topper.


100% hand tied Raquel Welch wigs are comfortable- soft and light. But much bigger in size, then her wefted wigs. I am not talking about circumference (that could be adjusted at nape), but the cap itself is roomy. The hair after wash becomes *****/wavy. I understand I should heat style it. I will try again.

Applause is human hair, lace front, completely hand tied and very light weight. Fits my petite average head nicely. Cut required some work to moisturize and style in a way I liked, took a lot of conditioner! But once I worked on it, I was very happy with it. Also very comfortable to wear, and the price is right.

I'm a true petite-average. The cap on this wig is very comfortable, the hair density is perfect for the size, which is perfect for me. I really like this wig, but I have many years of experience styling human hair wigs and a roomful of tools and product to do it with. I would imagine that this wig could be very frustrating to the first-time human hair customer. First, before you try to do any styling at all, the wig must be washed and conditioned. The hair will be very dry. I used Ren to wash followed by an oil conditioner, and allowed the hair to air dry for an hour, finishing it off with the cool setting on my hair dryer. The hair was still extremely dry and flyaway, and with no styling, it resembled the proverbial "rat's nest." I then applied a light coating of fractionated coconut oil (which is a little less greasy than other oils, but does condition), being careful not to apply too closely to the knots and focusing on the ends. After the hair absorbed that, I set the wig using electric rollers. It came out great! But the hair required a bit more oil due to dryness. I purchased the R29S. Darker colors might have gone through less processing and might be less dry. But with patience and practice, the dryness and styling are easy to address. I'm very happy with this wig, and I'm glad I purchased it, especially at such a great price!


First I have to say. I've passed by this wig many time's. Due to not liking the style on the models. But finally took the time to read & realize its human hair. I wanted a short human hair wig, so I didn't have to cut my longer HH one's. It arrives as it looks on the mannequin head. I let mine dry naturally the first time ,I washed it & the hair is very wavy layer's It does not need to be thinned out at all. Quite the opposite. I'm a big fan of lower density wigs. So that really helped. In my case I straighten HH wigs, also. So if you buy this to do that, bear in mind although it can be done it does take some time, due to the layering. Its well worth the price, for a natural look. It looks awesome leaving the layers alone too. I must add. I am a petite. But all I needed to do on this one was alter the tabs. It lay's nicely & is very comfortable. If your an average it will definably fit you perfectly..
