Are you considering buying a human hair wig? We know that it’s a big decision, so we thought we’d write this post to reassure you that purchasing a human hair wig is one of the best beauty investments you can make!
What are the best quality wigs?
Human hair wigs look and feel ultra-realistic, and they can be styled just like actual hair – meaning you can experiment with all sorts of different looks.
They come in a variety of colours and textures, so you can match your natural hair exactly, or opt for the total opposite if you want to try something different.
When you choose a human hair wig, no one will guess that the hair isn’t yours, and this is a great relief to many wig wearers, especially those who suffer from Alopecia or other health disorders.
When you purchase a great-quality human hair wig (or better yet, a collection of wigs!), you are guaranteeing yourself amazing hair for years to come.
Wigs made of 100 percent human hair allow you to change your look in seconds, and few other accessories can take you from feeling ‘meh’ to feeling fabulous so quickly!
How long do human hair wigs last?
Achieving great looks with wigs made of real human hair is much cheaper than visiting the hair salon every time you want to try something new!
Raw virgin human hair wigs (this means they have never been coloured or heat-styled) are the absolute best that money can buy.
Although synthetic wigs are fantastic for especially when on a really tight budget, they will never look as realistic or feel as comforting to wear as a human hair wig.
Unlike synthetic wigs, which only last a few months, human hair wigs last for years.
This means that despite their more expensive initial cost, they actually work out cheaper in the long run.
What kind of wig looks most natural?
Wondering why human hair wigs cost so much? It looks real…because it IS REAL!
Not only does the type of hair used for a wig determine its price, but other factors also come into play.
- Where does the hair originate?
- Is it ethically sourced?
- Does the hair pass strict hygiene standards?
- Will the wig fall apart after the first wash?
- Will the hair strands melt when heat is applied to them in the form of styling tools? Will the hair shed or tangle easily?
- Will the wig cap included in your piece chaff or irritate your scalp to the point where you cannot wait to take the wig off at the end of your day?
All these factors are what sets Tymeless Hair & Wigs apart from other wig and hairpiece manufacturers.
Is human hair really human hair?
Let us start at the beginning; where does our hair come from? As you’re probably very aware of, selling your hair is a common practice around the world. Many women sell their locks for income. These women often come from impoverished areas and spend years growing their hair for the sole purpose of cutting it so they can make money to support themselves and their families. Buyers want thick, healthy, “virgin” hair that is 10 inches long or longer but many buyers pay very little in return for this hair. The gathering of human hair is on the whole a backstage business about which little is known to those outside the trade.
What is the best grade of hair?
Remy hair is considered the finest quality of human hair since the cuticles are kept intact unlike most other non-remy hair extensions. In contrast, Remy human hair is collected through a method in which the hair strands are completely aligned in the natural direction as it grew.
What's the truth about where wig hair comes from?
Despite what some wig and hairpiece manufacturers claim, most hair is gathered in Asian countries in exchange for modest sums of money.
As an indepth report in Smithstonian Magazine highlighted, by the time the hair reaches the marketplace, it is usually divorced from not only the head of the woman who sold it but from its place of origin.
Even many of the shopkeepers and traders who sell hair extensions and wigs know very little about how it has been gathered unless they go to the considerable trouble of collecting it themselves or work for a major hair-manufacturing company with a department dedicated to hair procurement.
Labels such as “Brazilian”, “Peruvian”, “Indian”, “European”, “Euro-Asian”, and “Mongolian” adorn packets of hair, but they often operate more as exotic promises of variety than indicators of hair origin.
What is the best hair for wigs?
We take great care in knowing where our hair comes from. We only purchase hair from suppliers who pay the donors reasonable amounts for their hair. We use only the best quality Indian and European hair. The Indian hair is mainly sourced from South Indian Temples where tonsuring is a traditional practice (and yes, we’ve gone to these temples ourselves to see how this practice is done), while our European hair is sourced from our CANSA Shavathons and donors from various local hair salons.
We only buy Virgin Remy human hair from India. That means that at the time of collection, the hair was not permed, dyed, or coloured. Why is this important, you may ask?
Since urban Indians tend to get chemical treatments for their hair at beauty salons, rural temples and villages are the preferred destinations for exporters looking for natural, high-quality hair. The hair is also usually from a single donor.
Each strand of hair faces the same direction, not causing tangling, thus only premium hair is purchased.
Our hair is always soft and more manageable.
Unprocessed hair is undeniably a greater investment than processed hair, but worth the cost.
Unprocessed hair is harder to source, so it is in limited quantities, and it is indubitably more expensive than processed hair.
Do human hair wigs vulnerable to diseases and parasites?
After the hair is collected, our professional hair technicians put each and every hair strand through a vigorous and time staking process to ensure that any health hazards that may have accompanied their hair along its journey to our factory are disposed of.
That means using professional liquid chemicals and devices to remove any possibility of lice or disease from the hair to make it 100 percent safe to use.
Human hair can carry diseases, and our team is completely committed to ensuring this never happens to you because of any hairpiece or wig that comes from our factory.
How do we dye our human hair wigs?
After our team has disinfected the hair, the hair bundles are then washed and conditioned. It is then air-dried to check the correct texture and colour. Our, experienced Quality Control team carefully scrutinise the products at every step of the process from the time the hair reaches the factory ensuring only the best is made ready and available for our wigs, extensions, halos, wefts, toppers, and all other hairpieces. We do not use hair colour that fades or cheap dyes that can cause irritation. In fact, we only use salon approved pigments when creating everything from full colours, to highlights, lowlights, ombre colour, mixed colour, and so on. This adds another cost to the price tag. We use Joico Hair colour, with Lumishine technology. The result is thrilling, red-carpet colour so brilliant and talented, it should take home its very own trophy. LumiShine works its magic from the inside out, instantly restrengthening hair and delivering up to twice the shine, mega softness, along with colour that lasts and lasts.
Colouring YOUR world
Because our team of colourists are so pedantic, they don’t miss a single step in the colouring process. We use world-class lighteners that take blonde to new heights. You will never have to worry about one of our wigs or hairpieces looking brassy, faded, or damage, after weeks of wear. Nor will you ever have to worry about coarse, wiry, brittle strands. We guarantee gorgeous, rich, vibrant hair colour, no matter how long you have your human hair wig for, or how often you wash it. Our team are also experts in creating different hair colouring techniques such as ombre and balayage. For human hair wigs created with these different techniques, take a look at two of our unqiue pieces – a blue and black ombre and an ash-blonde-balayage.
After colouring, each wig and hairpiece go through yet another stage, which affects the wig price. To ensure the premium quality of our products, we go as far as hand-tying each hair into the cap base and making a knot.
For a full lace wig, this requires at least 40 hours of work to finish. When it comes to adding a monofilament top or silk top onto the wig cap, the time required can be as much as double.
A higher hair density like 150% or 180% will also need more time since there is more hair that must be tied.
Human hair wigs for cancer, Alopecia and other conditions that cause hair loss
Because we also cater to clients suffering hair loss due to cancer, alopecia, androgenic alopecia, thinning hair, chronic conditions or illness, we need to ensure that every wig we make feels just as beautiful as it looks.
And by “feel” we are not just talking about the feeling of the hair – which needs to feel completely natural to touch.
We also talking about the feel of the wig on your scalp.
We consider everything from hairline gradient to skin tone while producing our beautiful human hair wig.
Why wear a wig?
Everyone has a different experience dealing with hair loss, but the feelings we share are the same. Hair loss has an impact on your self-image and self-esteem. Beautiful wigs for cancer patients can help boost confidence and regain some sense of normalcy but THEY HAVE TO BE COMFORTABLE.
What is a medical wig cap?
All our wigs are made using medical customised wig caps, making them perfect for those suffering hair loss or those with sensitive skin.
Our medical wig caps are imported from Italy.
We chose an international supplier because their wigs are made of the highest standards we’ve seen.
Each medical wig cap is made of very soft Swiss Net, which is breathable and does not burn or itch on the scalp.
You do not have to worry about the wig slipping off, even if you have severe hair loss.
All our wigs adhere to the medical wig cap and give you an extra measure of security.
All our monofilament medical wig caps have inner silicone, which has been tested vigorously to ensure it is allergy-free.
Confidential wig consultations
Our customers are vital to us, so we constantly train our specialists to guarantee that all our products are of the most astounding standard and that every customer gets the best consideration. Training staff also comes at a cost but is a cost we cannot skimp on. In addition, we offer every client a free consultation so we can ensure you are 100 percent happy with your wig or hairpiece. We have also invested in a tailormade salon that offers the most noteworthy quality hair benefits in a setting that is more advantageous for visitors and caters to those undergoing treatment.
Quality human hair wigs - our promise
All these factors play a part in the final price of the wig or hairpiece you select. We are constantly striving to improve our product line to make our human hair wigs and hairpieces more accessible to everyone but we cannot – and will not ever compromise on quality. That is our promise to you. And that promise is Tymeless.
