Everyone is concerned about whether or not they will feel natural or uncomfortable when they wear a wig. Some people even feel uncomfortable wearing a wig because it does not look natural. Here are some tips to make it look natural with a little ingenuity.
Surprise! The image changes with the mounting position and the way it’s mounted!
When you want your wig to look natural, the first thing you want to inspect is where and how it is worn. If you do it wrong, it will not look natural. Generally speaking, wigs should be worn about “four fingers from the eyebrows”.
Since this position varies from person to person, please use this as a basis for fine-tuning. Also, the way it is worn can greatly change the image. The key to a natural look is to make the scalp and the base of the wig as close as possible.
Among other things, the front part needs to look properly attached. There are two ways to do this: using pins or tape, so if you feel that the wig floats, you can give it a try.
Shampooing your wig is a must!
Human hair can maintain a certain volume even if it is not washed for a certain period of time. However, this is not the case with wigs. If left unattended, oil and dirt will adhere to the roots, and as it accumulates, it will make the entire area look sticky.
Of course, even if you shampoo daily, dirt can easily remain on the hair if it has been used for a long period of time. There are two ways to shampoo: with the wig in place or with the wig removed.
Regularly shampooing the wig in the correct way will change the impression it gives when worn, so it is important to take proper care of yourself.
How to improve a wig that appears sticky and taut
Besides shampooing, there are other ways to improve a wig that appears to be sticking up. For example, one method is to iron it. Depending on how the waves are applied, it is possible to add volume or change the impression.
Also, for wigs that have been used for a long time, “root straightening” may be necessary. This is because wigs can become messed up in the direction of the roots over time and look unnatural without volume. For human hair wigs, a permanent process is possible, but it is a little more difficult to set.
Both of these processes are somewhat difficult to do by yourself, so it is best to consult a specialized store.
Last resort! Transform your wig with hair volume adjustment and color
The impression of a wig can be greatly affected by the amount of hair. If the hair is too heavy and unnatural, it often looks more natural if it is cut shorter. It also looks unnatural when the color of the wig and the natural hair differs due to age or other factors.
In the case of human hair wigs, it is possible to dye the wig with commercially available hair dye solution, so it is recommended to change the color to match your own hair color. Please note that artificial hair cannot be dyed.
To make the wig look natural, self-care, such as daily shampooing, and the method of wearing the wig are essential. If the situation still does not improve, you should ask for maintenance at a specialized store.
