Caring For Your Human Hair System

products_featured_imageIf you’re experiencing hair loss, you’ve most likely started to do some research on the different products and systems available.  On Tuesday we talked about a high quality human hair system by Follea.  If you’re leaning towards human hair for your hair replacement solution, one important thing to consider is the maintenance and what is required to keep your Follea hair system looking beautiful. 

One benefit of choosing a human hair system is its versatility.  If you wish to change the color of your human hair wig, it is possible.  A colorist who has been trained to work with coloring human hair systems is recommended as damaging your investment is likely by doing it yourself or asking a colorist who is only familiar in working with natural human hair.

Using regular hair care products can also damage not only the human hair it’s made with, but the materials the individual hairs are hand knotted to.  The most important thing to remember when shopping for hair care products is to make sure they are sulfate and paraben-free.  Using shampoos and conditioners that are sulfate and paraben-free is a good rule of thumb to keep in mind anyway for care of not only your human hair wig, but also your body.  These chemicals absorb into your body through your skin and can be harmful to your health.

Assessing your activities and your lifestyle is another main component of choosing which hair system is right for you.  If you enjoy water activities, such as swimming for exercise, you can swim in your Follea wig, but it’s not recommended.  Human hair absorbs water and can become very saturated and heavy, which can affect the comfort and the secure fit of your wig.

There are many facets to choosing the right hair replacement solution for you.  It’s important that you consult with a professional on such a large investment.  To learn more, connect with DK International on Facebook and you’ll receive continued tips on the different solutions available in the hair replacement industry. 

High Quality Natural Hair

medium_2508700337At DK International we only offer the best to our clients.  From our service, products, and advice, we provide what’s best for you.  During your one-hour consultation we’ll go through the type of hair loss you are experiencing, the different solutions the industry provides, and what’s going to fit into your style and budget.  If it turns out a human hair system is right for you, then you’ll be educated on one of the best in the industry; a wig from Follea.  Follea wigs are made with 100% European Remy ponytail hair.  It’s amazing when women try on one of these hair systems!  Because of the lace top and the fact that cap is hand knotted, it looks and feels just like your own natural hair right down to the last detail. 

Follea hair is special right from the beginning in the way they treat each individual hair.  Every natural hair system must go through some processing, which is why Follea hair is Remy hair.  Remy means that layers of cuticle are gently removed from the hair in-house in small batches.  Removing the cuticle allows for hand-knotting the hair onto lace, which creates Follea’s natural lace-front designs that don’t require glue.  To give more volume “return” hairs are tied in along with longer hairs to create the desired amount of volume.  Every hair has a direction, or grain, like in wood.  If the cuticle isn’t removed it causes matting and easy tangling since the hairs are lying in opposing directions to create the volume. 

Even though Follea must process even the highest quality European hair, their process is unique in that it is done carefully and in small batches to maintain the integrity of the hair.  Lower cost hair through hair processors often use “swept-off-the-floor” hair and subject it to an acid bath in large vats.  Processing hair in this way can greatly damage the strength of the human hair on your hair system. 

Follow DK International on Facebook for more inside information on the different human hair system offerings.  Even the lower cost human hair options can be high cost, so no matter your choice you want to make sure you’re making an investment that will work for you. 

A Full Cap Wig You Can Swim In

small__5872078363If you’re experiencing partial to full hair loss, or know you will be experiencing it, you may have come across a hair system called Private Issue by Cyberhair.  To get a custom wig by Private Issue, you must work with a trained technician and an exclusive salon that works with Private Issue.  The salon you choose to work with will first consult with you on your lifestyle, desired hair color, the type of cap you’ll need, and your desired style.  If you’re concerned about looking great while enjoying your active lifestyle, don’t!  Private Issue by Cyberhair was made for people that are active and want to remain active!

 

Working out is no problem with the specially designed Private Issue cap.  Since Cyberhair is so light, and the cap is designed with active people in mind, air flows through it, keeping you comfortable when perspiring.  If you swim for exercise, be sure to mention that during your consultation as there are many different solutions to make sure the cap stays on in the pool, it all depends on the type of hair loss you are experiencing.  After you’re done swimming, or showering after your work out, there is no need to lug a blow dryer around.  Because Cyberhair loves water, all you need to do is shake your head and comb your fingers through your hair.  It dries so fast that there is no need for a blow dryer!  Since Cyberhair has color retention, chlorine and salt water have no effect on color, the sun won’t fade it, and feel free to wash it as often as you like.  Proper care and bringing your system to your Private Issue salon for revitalization will ensure a long lasting hair system that will look beautiful for years to come.

A Full Cap Wig For Active Lifestyles

small_3737662943We’ve been talking a lot about Cyberhair and how you can use it for enhancements to your naturally growing hair using Micro Point Links, Accents, and Panels.  But what is Cyberhair?  If it’s not human, it must be synthetic, right?  Actually, it’s so technologically advanced that it doesn’t seem fair to call it synthetic!  Instead, we call it created hair.  Cyberhair is made from nylon fibers that possess the sheen of human hair and the durability of synthetic hair.  However, Cyberhair takes the hair replacement industry a few steps further by retaining it’s color, being feather light, loving water, and remembering it’s style.  You might start to wonder if it’s even better than human hair!

 

Micro Point Solutions are great for those who have thin hair or are experiencing thinning hair and want a boost in the density and body of their hair.  However, for partial or full hair loss, Private Issue by Cyberhair can give you a full cap system that feels like you and allows you to live the active lifestyle you’ve always had.  Catalogs are available for Private Issue wigs to showcase the wide variety of colors and styles you can achieve with Cyberhair.  Private Issue wigs are custom and require a consultation and a cut-in by a trained and certified technician.  A certified technician has been trained on Private Issue wigs to custom fit the cap to your head and will professionally style and cut the wig for your facial features.  The consultation takes about one hour and the cut-in takes an additional hour.  Investing your time at the beginning of the process will make you walk out of the salon feeling fabulous about your appearance, as well as your investment!

Feather Light, Versatile Hair Extensions That Love Water

Thin hair may be something you’ve had all your life, and perhaps it hasn’t bothered you.  Certain haircuts and styles can help make fine hair looks its best, or perhaps you throw it up in a ponytail and move on with your day because you’d rather not take the time to think about it.  There may come a time in your life, however, when you wish you had thicker hair with more body.  Traditional extensions using synthetic or human hair can become uncomfortable because of their heavy weight.  Synthetic hair extensions also aren’t ideal for women who style their hair with hot styling appliances, as they can’t handle heat. 

Micro Point Panels by Micro Point Solutions address the problems that women looking at traditional extensions face.  Micro Point Panels use Cyberhair, which is a created hair that’s feather light, loves water, and can be styled with styling tools.  Micro Point Panels are attached and layered throughout the sides and back of your naturally growing hair.  They’re perfect for up dos for special occasions like weddings or prom, but comfortable and versatile enough enough for every day wear.

Micro Point Panel extensions are 800 Cyberhairs attached to a narrow 3” piece of polyurethane.  The Panel is applied to a small section of your own hair using a medical grade adhesive tape.  The Panels maximize the amount of coverage, volume and fullness.  Panels are ideal for women with short, medium or long and fine hair seeking more volume and density.  Panels can be applied in about as much time as it takes to get a trim, so you can return from your lunch break with noticeably more volume! Micro Point Panels can be enjoyed for four weeks with proper care, but can be easily removed if desired.
