Making Wigs Look Natural

What is it in some wigs that make them completely unrecognisable and the on-lookers are unable to identify them as wigs and differentiate them from natural hair? The difference lies in the colouring at the hairline. The main aim of a good wig is a natural-looking hairline. Every undetectable wig has a subtle hint of colour around the edges. In natural hair, the hair at the edges of the hairline, framing the face, is of a slightly lighter shade and then gradually darkens as it moves inwards and upwards. Good quality extensions replicate this shading process by the use of lowlights and highlights to become undetectable.

Bad hair extensions are far darker at the hairline making the wigs look like a cap. So, the next time you shop for a wig, check the colour to ensure that the hair towards the face is lighter in colour shade. Even a minor difference of a shade or two can make enough of an impact. Match the colour along the edges of the hair products to the colour of your skin, just like natural hair. If you already have wigs and you wish to improve them, get those coloured along the hairline. Any competent beautician can colour hair wigs to harmonize with your skin tone and make the wigs look natural.

  1. I’m dealing with the same thing. I just had a baby 4 mhtons ago and my hair falls out like crazy. I’ve asked different people and also asked my doctor and, apparently, there’s nothing you can do about it right now and, that yes, it’s normal and will eventually grow back. I asked if I could use Nioxin products (a line of hair care products made specifically for thinning hair) but they said no, since I was breastfeeding ( I should wait until I stopped). Now, if you’re not breastfeeding, that would probably be a very good option for you. I’ve never heard anything bad about the product and everyone claims it stops hair loss and triggers new growth. If you are breastfeeding, I wouldn’t advise you quit just to use the product. Your child needs that valuable nutrition. If nothing else, just make sure you eat well and get all the nutrients you need and drink plenty of water.
