BRUSHING & STORAGE:

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.

WASHING & STYLING:

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.

COLOUR REFRESHING & MAINTENANCE:

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. 

WEARING OF HEADWEAR & EXERCISE/SWIMMING/SLEEPING

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.

This is my second purchase of this particular hairpiece. The quality of the hair is not as good as another brand I have had, the proof will be in how long it holds up. My hairdresser matched my natural hair color perfectly! I can see the mesh hairline, which I have trimmed as close as I can, and it shows at the part. Other people don't seem to not Read more about review stating nice hairpieceice but I do. However, I have had more compliments on my hair with this hairpiece than any other!

I have had thinning hair since about 2008. I really enjoyed the easi-part brand until my hair got too thin to hold those pieces on. Then I switched the fuller coverage top pieces but as my hair was thin up front I had a hard time integrating the pieces smoothly. THIS PIECE OFFERS a LACE FRONT and human hair which I think are too MUST HAVES when trying to integrate a hair piece smoothly. I do have some tips (and to respond to Holly who feels she wasted money on this product). Depending on the shape of your head you may have to ADD some wig clips to help the piece be more secure. I added a couple of clips around the monofilament base to help keep it secure. It is actually pretty easy to do just a needle and an appropriately colored thread. Two you gotta cut the ready to wear lace to be very close to the edge of the wig's hair -- otherwise it may be too obvious... I also trimmed a small inlet in to the lace as a faux part... this helped me blend my natural part and sparse amount of remaining hair into the piece. Three keep the bangs.... (long side bang is how I wear it). Four. . . don't trim yourself (seems obvious I know but my previous top pieces were pretty easy to trim at home -- this one however picks up dramatically like full wigs tend to do so just FYI).
