Hair is a very important aspect for women, to the extent that alot of them feel that it defines them to a large extent. I have meet cancer survivors who said that they fought through the entire cancer treatment bravely and were ready to fight it again when it reoccured, but broke down when the thought of losing their real hair wigs came to them. Most of the people do not take care of their hair as often as they should and generally people start from having dry, damaged, too thin, or losing hair scenarios. We actually did a study on this sometime back and posted this It just mentions the oils people can apply to their hair and take better care of it. We are researching some more and coming up with different aspects of hair care and I will be posting those as an edit later.
- Coconut Oil – Most widely used and recommended. It has alot of anti-fungal properties and is used for dry real hair wigs and fighting dandruff.
- Jojoba Oil – Used to combat real hair wigs fall. Be careful and find out if you are allergic to it (some people are). It helps thicken hair.
- Olive Oil – From our kitchen to our real hair wigs. It is an excellent moisturiser. It is suited for people who are taking care of rough or damaged hair.
- Almond Oil – Also used to combat real hair wigs loss in many cases. It is used to combat split ends and hair that is dry.
- Castor Oil – Too strong on its own, but often mixed with coconut oil can promote real hair wigs growth, thicken hair, and condition as well.
I wash my real hair wigs with a sulphate free shampoo that includes red pigment (I’m currently red) every other or every third day. I condition after every other shampoo with a red pigment conditioner, and let that sit for about 10-15 minutes before rinsing. I use only lukewarm water to wash my hair.
At today’s real hair wigs appointment, my sister will be trying a new additive for color that should help protect my hair from damage.
