3 Grades Of Exclusive Premium Human Hair

small__1884898876When shopping for a human hair wig, you may run into some confusion over varying costs and what those costs mean.  Many people solve this problem by scheduling a consultation with one of our trained hair replacement technicians at DK International.  However, sometimes people like to research on their own before coming to the salon.  Whatever your preference, this blog will help you learn about the different grades of human hair through Follea.

Hand Selected Premium European

This type of human hair for wigs is the best of the best.  The cuticles remain in tact and Follea’s veteran sorters handpick the hair after initial bulk sorting.  Hand selected hair is rich and radiant with a brilliant shine.  Acting just like natural hair, hand selected premium European hair has responsive natural body and movement.

Premium European

Premium European hair is the top grade of hair separated during Follea’s bulk sorting process.  This grade of hair is perfect for subtle European colors.  Unlike hand-selected hair, premium European hair does go through processing, although it is moderate and gentle.

European Cuticle Removed

European cuticle removed hair is hair with medium to high denier, which is selected for durability with a mind to lightness.  Higher denier hair tolerates processing stress very well and is ideal for a full-time wearer who uses bonding applications.  Although European cuticle removed hair is the lowest grade hair offered through Follea, because it comes from Follea it is still well above industry standards of color.

There is a lot to know before you invest in the right wig for your type of hair loss and your lifestyle.  Now that you know a little more about the different grades of human hair available through Follea, you may find you have additional questions.  Schedule your free one-hour consultation today with one of our trained technicians by contacting DK International.  Find us on Facebook where we post before and after success stories, blog updates, and more!

2 New Solutions For Secure, Comfortable Full Cap Wigs

small_3737662943If you know you’re going to be experiencing hair loss, one concern you might have is how comfortable your hair replacement solution is going to be, especially with an active lifestyle.  Many people have found solutions by turning to high quality hair replacement solutions.  Follea has taken the issue of comfort and has worked hard to achieve a comfortable hair replacement system that stays in place.  In this post, we will go over how Follea has solved the problem of comfortable wigs for people with active lifestyles.

Follea wigs are made especially for those who are experiencing hair loss due to alopecia, radiation, chemotherapy, or other causes.  While bonding is a solution to keeping your wig in place during activities such as working out, or enjoying the outdoors, it can be uncomfortable on sensitive skin caused by alopecia or chemotherapy.  Follea has designed a collection called Gripper-2, which meets the needs of comfort and durability. 

Two popular styles from the Gripper-2 collection are Gripper Cool and the Gripper Sport:

Gripper Cool

The Gripper Cool is a great system for every day use.  It doesn’t use elastic to stay on the head, but silicone.  Silicone acts like elastic, but it’s not too tight so it won’t give you a headache at the end of a long day of wear.  The silicone works because the human head is smaller at the bottom than the top and the silicone grips comfortably to your head.

Gripper Sport

The gripper sport has the same silicone design of the Gripper Cool, but Follea has added 13 layers of silicone for added security, which is essential to a windy day or intense activity such as bike riding or running. 

Now that you’re aware of Follea’s option for comfortable wigs that stay in place, you need to find a certified Follea salon.  That’s where DK International can help.  Contact DK International for your free one-hour consultation where you’ll be able to try on and feel a Follea gripper wig.  Our trained technicians will help you choose the best option for you so you’re secure in your investment.  Follow us and be sociable with us on Facebook and share this blog with the person you know that is concerned with going through hair loss.

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.
