When Wig Was Queen

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Is there any connection between the famous pop singer, Lady Gaga, and the great Queen Elizabeth I of England? Not an obvious one for sure, but there surely is one. Just like the pop singer doesn’t miss any chance to impress her fans and the music world by wearing fancy wigs matched with eccentric outfits, so did aristocratic women of times past. Their clothes were not as hair raising as Lady Gaga’s, but their wigs definitely were. Women from baroque and rococo periods took wigs to a whole new level by adding all kinds of accessories on them.

The reasons why women used to wear wigs centuries ago are not so different than the ones applicable these days. Yes, they wanted to look good, but they also needed wigs because of lice problems. Heat favors the multiplication of lice, so they used to shave their heads and cover them with beautiful, pompous wigs. For most these days, this particular concern no longer exists, but there are other reasons that generate baldness.

It goes without saying that only aristocratic women were able to afford a wig. The natural hair used to make wigs was often taken from slaves. In order to look more attractive, some women were only using what we know these days as wefts and closures. In Rome, both men and women started wearing wigs since the early days of the empire. The wig was considered a sign of distinction.

It is said that Empress Messalina would wear a blonde wig in order to disguise herself when she went to the brothel. Blonde wigs were, in fact, most sought by the Roman aristocratic women. Therefore, hair from European women was idealized. In addition, Faustina, wife of Marcus Aurelius, had an impressive collection of wigs- one for each attire. While these remarkable women only needed wigs to enhance their looks, Queen Elizabeth I was so well known for her red wigs that it was rumored that she had hair loss issues and needed to wear them. However, these bald tales seem to be unsubstantiated.

The eighteenth-century brought rococo wigs that were decorated in very unusual ways. Some of the ladies had high wigs with metal frames inside them that were able to sustain bird cages. They used to put one of these wigs on when they went out for a walk in the park or to visit someone. Jewelry, feathers and all kinds of other precious and flashy objects were glued onto wigs. However, things changed after the French Revolution, when wigs were associated with excess and decadence.

Wearing a wig is not associated with social prestige anymore. However, we basically have the same reasons for wearing a wig as did women who lived centuries ago. Either for medical reasons or just beautification purposes, wigs now are accessible and quite varied. Wearing them is now optional and they are a whole lot more comfortable. There is no longer a social pressure on women who wear wigs and those who choose not to. It is a personal option for both women suffering from various hair loss/medical conditions and women who just want to change their looks overnight.

Special Care for Your 100% Natural Lace Wigs

Saturday, August 8th, 2015

natural lace wigs The reason why 100% natural lace wigs are the best choice is already clear, but the fact that they need special care might seem intimidating to some. Indeed, synthetic wigs don’t need styling and they are easy to wash just by putting them in cold water mixed with a special solution. However, natural lace wigs can be much more rewarding because of the efforts you make in maintaining its beauty and the versatility in styling.
If you own a natural lace wig, then you know that the hairstyles won’t last very long without proper care. Just like naturally growing hair, the hair used to make our lace wigs may become oily, dry or and go flat. This happens because although the hair is all natural, it was cut from the roots that were feeding it with nutrients in order to regenerate it and keep it moisturized. So, the need of washing your natural lace wig for an infusion of moisture is imperative. Whenever you feel that your wig is full of hairspray, wax or any other styling products that you might use, it will need to be cleaned.

Washing your all natural lace wigs

Before you wash your wig, you must comb the hair carefully. Using a wide tooth comb rather than a brush is pertinent for preventing unnecessary shedding. If you skip this step, you might have to deal with even larger portions of tangled hair afterwards, and therefore, an increase in shedding.
Next, you can fill the sink or a bowl that’s big enough with warm water. The reason why lace wigs need to be washed with warm water is because the pores of natural hair open in contact with heat sources and close in contact with cold water or cold air. Washing with the wrong temperature can cause the hair to be dry or tangle more. The hair products used can also impact the softness and manageability of your natural lace wigs. You can choose from a wide range of products that are especially meant to be used for wigs. When in a pinch and you have to wash your unit and don’t have any special wig shampoo, you can use a highly moisturizing regular shampoo.
The third step that you should take after cleaning your natural lace wig is to apply a conditioner. There are plenty revitalizing conditioners in our store and that are available in your local markets that can moisturize your wig well. Opt for non-static products if you notice that there’s a tendency of electrification when you comb the hair. Then, rinse the wig’s hair with warm water. You should expect some hair shedding with continued use and washing of your natural lace wigs, so we recommend that you do not overdo it with washing. You should wash the hair when necessary but daily washing is certainly not recommended.
It is important to towel or air dry your natural lace wigs. Hand squeeze any extra water and then place the wig in a towel to soak up any extra water. If you have a curly hair unit, it is recommended that you do not use a towel! This can cause extra frizz and dryness. For curly units, hand squeeze out the extra water, apply your favorite curl defining product and then let the wig air dry. Ideally, you should let your natural lace wigs air dry on a wig stand and style it after it is dry. Flat irons or curling irons are permitted with natural hair and you can also use heat protectants before you begin the styling process of your wig. De Novo Hair is also resourceful when it comes to styling products, as well as wig stands that make your work much easier.
