Oily Hair Care Tips- Do you have oily hair? If you wash your hair in the morning, you may find yourself frustrated by the time evening rolls around, as your hair already appears to need another wash. Keep in mind that oily hair is really an oily scalp. Wash your scalp and hair as needed, lathering twice if you need to. You might try leaving the shampoo on your head for at least five minutes before rinsing. And conditioner your hair on the ends only. Do not place conditioner directly to your scalp. Avoid brushing your hair too often, as the brush brings oil from the scalp to the ends of your hair.

Also, ask your hair stylist what he or she recommends for oily hair.

Like your natural hair, if you want your human hair wig to continue to look beautiful, it will require regular maintenance. Your wig should be brushed as often as you wear it. Your wig should be washed at least once a month. You can do this yourself or it can be done professionally by a wig salon. We always recommend using a professional wig care specialist. Not aware of a wig salon in your area? Your local hairdresser may have experience with wigs and may be able to service your wigs just as they did your real hair. It doesn't hurt to ask. Also, don't forget that Fortune Wigs has two salon locations, one in Brooklyn, NY and one in Lakewood NJ.

Adjusting and putting on our human hair wigs for the first time.

  1. If you have short hair, you may skip this step. If your hair is longer, tie your hair in a loose, low bun before putting on your wig.
  2. Remove the wig from the packaging and grip it by the front hairline.
  3. Gently run your fingers through the hair from the hairline downward to give the wig some bounce and to straighten any hairs that are out of place.
  4. One at a time, place your index and middle finger on either side of each of the smaller hair grip clips (figure 1) and, using your thumb, press upward in the center of the clip from the outside of the wig to invert the clip. You will hear a snapping sound.
  5. Once you have inverted the two smaller side clips, grip the wig as shown in figure 2 with the inside of the wig cap facing away from your body, tilt your head forward and slide the wig onto your head. The large hairline clip in the center will hook into your natural hairline
  6. While still holding onto the wig, gently toss the hair over your head and slide your fingers along the wigs perimeter to the back pulling the wig over your hair and onto your head. Don't worry if you miss some of your hair. Just slide your hands in between the wig and your head tucking in any loose hairs afterward.
  7. Now, using your finders as a guide, find the two smaller clips along the sides of the inside hairline (that you inverted earlier) and using your index and middle fingers, press the edges until the clips snap back into place.
  8. Finally, use a brush to adjust out of place hairs (or your fingers)
