Rocking Gray Hair With Wigs

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

The short, nicely styled, awesomely combed gray hair has worked its way on today’s red carpet looks. Even so, not all of us everyday people are ready to rock this kind of hairstyle inspired by Mother Nature. Perhaps, more bitter for women than it will ever be for men, graying hair is definitely unstoppable, but there are ways to flaunt it and even hide it, if you so choose. The most common solution would be to dye your grey hair, but isn’t that too much of a commitment to just one color and, also, damaging for our hair?

Sooner or later we are all going to have to deal with gray hair issues. According to various hair-stylists, there are an increasingly large number of young women who ask for advice regarding their grayed out hairs. The explanation for this natural change is quite simple. Our bodies produce a pigment called melanin, but the production of melanin doesn’t stay consistent throughout our lives. Therefore, at some point, our bodies will produce less resulting in grey hairs.

There are dozens of causes that determine whether hair will change color in people who are still young. Some of them are accepted by most scientists, while others are still in debate. Among all these, the best known are faulty diets, stress, blow-drying, hair dyes, anemia, anxiety or even heredity factors. Many well-known celebrities face this problem, such as Kate Middleton, Jennifer Lopez, Katie Holmes and even young Selena Gomez. The most obvious and embraced solution for gray hair is hair-dye, but is it really the best one? Dyeing our hair has a thinning, damaging effect on it, sometimes causing hair loss or producing allergies. In addition, gray hair is known to be quite stubborn when it comes to coloring, so dyeing requires stronger dyes that are filled with even more chemicals. Not to mention that sometimes there are some hairs that act rebellious by not absorbing the dye and that proudly stand out. As for the permanent commitment aspect, dyeing our hair is an even worse choice for those of us who like to change their hair color often.

Gray Hair Wigs At DeNovoHair.com

A more user-friendly, very fun, non-permanent and with little risks approach is the wig! Perhaps, many of us still associate gray wigs with the kind of look of Marie Antoinette’s. This is, of course, a misconception, but linking wigs to something pompous or uncomfortable is still a held belief by some who are not familiar with the wig technology of today. Since we are all going to deal with gray hair someday and some of us are dealing with it right now, we should really consider all the beautiful styling options available with trendy wigs rather than damaging our hair further with dyes. Wearing different wigs is like dyeing and styling our hair differently every day, but without all the hassle!

Using Lace Wigs as a Protective Style

Saturday, February 28th, 2015

Lace wigs are not just used for addressing hair loss but can also be used as a protective style for those who do have lots of hair or for those who are working on growing out or transitioning their hair. In addition, lots of women love to change their look without putting too much stress on their own hair. You can accomplish this by using lace wigs as a protective style.  By using lace wigs as a protective style, you can change the cut, color, length and texture of your look without doing damage to your own hair. Your own hair can be braided down, conditioned, and well taken care of, while you style your lace wig as needed. No need to worry about doing damage to your own hair.

Lace wigs also allow you to give your hair and scalp a much needed break from any heat/straightening treatments, like flat irons, for example.  Flat iron and blow dry your hair every day and you are more prone to limp, dry hair.  Love your curly hair but would like to wear it straight from time to time without risking heat damage? Why not try ordering one of our lace wigs as a protective style? Is your hair in need of some tender care without constant combing? Facilitate its growth by giving the constant grooming a rest!  Gone are the days where women’s wigs are used just for necessity. Today women also accessorize with hair and it is much easier to do so!

Sleep Protection

Monday, February 15th, 2010

We learned previously that friction with certain materials can cause breakage and tangling with our hair.  This is not only true for materials we wear but also true for materials we sleep on.  Cotton is a material that can cause breakage and tangling with your hair.  Wrapping your hair and tying it with a silk or satin scarf for sleep can not only reduce friction that causes breakage but also keeps the flow of your hairstyle intact.  It is also a good idea to have a satin pillowcase for extra protection in case your scarf comes off in the middle of the night.

Good night, and sleep worry free!

Winterizing Your Hair, by Chaunteese

Friday, January 8th, 2010

Since having my new De Novo Hair full lace wig I have acquired a number of suggestions that will help clients keep their wig healthy and tangle free. Anyone who has spent even one single day in Chicago during the winter can contest to the brutality that Mother Nature unleashes on the body, skin and hair. That’s why here in Chi, we have to bundle up! However, the materials that our hats and coats are made from oftentimes are not friendly to our hair.  In fact, clients oftentimes, come in to the salon with breakage and evidence of unhealthy hair care.  What causes this breakage is friction, which is caused by movement between the materials of our garments which comes in contact with our hair.  This friction can also cause tangling with your hair addition, especially at the nape. However, there are ways to help reduce that friction: 1) Try to wear garments made from the material Satin or Silk.  So, before you put on your winter hat and coat, you should put on a silk or satin bonnet or scarf to protect your hair.  This will provide adequate protection, in most instances, against the drying effects of Mother Nature’s brutal winds and cold temperatures. In addition, this will reduce tangling as well as breakage. Stay warm and don’t worry so much about your hair!

Lace Front Wig, Full Lace Wigs, Lacefronts…What Does It All Mean?

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

There can be a lot of confusion about lace wig products, as they are popularly known under a number of different names. Lace fronts, lace front wigs, full lace wigs, full lace front wigs, to name a few, are all terms used to describe lace wig products. You may find yourself asking, what does it all mean? Although these terms reference similar hair technologies, they can represent different methods of wig construction. Lace wig is the general term to describe hair extension/hair replacement technology where hair is hand-tied in individual strands onto a fine lace net, mimicking natural hair growth. The materials used on the wig’s cap can vary, but it is the hand-crafted method of “ventilating” or knotting hair onto the base of the cap that sets these wigs apart from wigs of the past. They can be styled just like naturally growing hair and are lightweight and comfortable.

The term ‘Full Lace’ generally denotes that the entire wig’s cap is hand-tied and made fully of lace, while ‘Lace Front’ wigs have lace at the front hairline and different materials at the back of the cap. Now here’s where it can get confusing- ‘Lace Fronts’ or ‘Lace Front Wigs’ are popular terms used to reference any type of lace wig- the terms are often used interchangeably.  However, lace wigs differ widely in their quality and construction and you should inquire specifically about what you are getting before purchasing. Many companies, for example, sell lace front wigs that are only hand-tied for a small area at the front hairline of the wig, while the rest of the cap is made like a traditional wig with rows of wefts (track hair used for weaving). Though this type of construction may be more affordable because it is more easily mass produced, it does not measure up to the quality craftsmanship of a fully hand-tied wig made from an expert wig maker. Given that it can take several days for a wig maker to hand-tie one wig, the reasons for the price differences become more apparent. It is really an art, and only the best wig makers can create a natural and gorgeous piece that leaves no question to the wig wearer on its authenticity.

De Novo Hair specializes in lace wig customization.  We understand and appreciate the art of illusion in hair extension/hair replacement lace wig products. Unlike some of the cheaper models now widely available in beauty supply stores across the country, all of our wigs are still fully hand-tied and made to custom specifications. You can customize your head size, hair color, how the cap is made and with what materials, the hair used, the hair texture, including the shape of the hairline. Aside from our expert hand-tied technology, we only use quality human hair with textures to suit all ethnicities. We realize that one size does not fit all and take pride in helping women celebrate their individuality through our quality product line!

September is Alopecia Areata Awareness Month!

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

This month we wanted to bring awareness to alopecia areata and shed some light on how De Novo Hair lace wigs can be used to help individuals affected by it. Alopecia areata is a hair-loss condition that is associated with an abnormality in the immune system. Particularly, one’s immune system attacks the hair follicles of the scalp generating partial or complete hair loss. This abnormality in hair formation, however, can also affect other areas of the body. Though the reason for its onset is unexplained, research suggests that genetics may play a role in the likelihood of developing this autoimmune condition. Alopecia areata also tends to develop in early life, with typical onset among children, teens and young adults.

Once diagnosed with alopecia areata, a number of treatments are available. The efficacy of these treatments varies as there is no proven remedy for its prevention. What has been shown to be particularly helpful are the ways in which patients cope with alopecia areata. Hair loss can contribute to increased emotional stress including depression. In a society where images of health, beauty and femininity are often associated with a healthy head of hair, hair loss can bring about many stressful situations and can adversely affect one’s self-concept. Even for those who are comfortable in their hair loss, they may not be as comfortable with the stereotyped identities others ascribe to them.

Many persons who can benefit the most from De Novo Hair full lace wigs or lace front wigs sometimes are not even aware of lace wigs as being a hair replacement option. Traditional wigs of yester years are notoriously very uncomfortable and restrictive in style and function. Many are “one size fits all” and there’s really no such thing when it comes to a well-designed and well-fitting hair replacement prosthetic. This is why you won’t get that classic tell-tale sign of unnatural bunching at the crown with a De Novo Hair lace wig. Our lace wigs fit to the contours of your head by circumference size and you can get the best fit by taking your full measurements. Because our lace wigs are fully hand-tied, you get a natural hair growth pattern. You can style it any which way and not have to worry about combing the hair toward your face to conceal your hairline.

If you think you might be experiencing signs of hair loss, do not hesitate to contact your doctor for more information about your particular condition. Some forms of hair loss can be treated well if damage to the hair follicles can be minimized. Your doctor can even write a prescription for your prosthetic and we will help with the rest! We love helping customers reclaim their self expression and identities through our high quality product line.

Flat Ironing & Texture

Friday, August 7th, 2009

De Novo Hair offers the widest variety of hair textures that are suitable for women of all ethnicities. Our clients appreciate the choices they have in matching to their own hair texture or for trying out a new style. With curly or wavy styles, it is relatively easy to pick out a texture based on the curl pattern pictured. The task is more nuanced with straight hair especially since the differences can be more subtle. As with all human hair, it is important to note that the texture can change temporarily based on how the hair is styled, especially when using styling tools like flat irons or curling irons. The heat in these tools essentially changes the bond in the hair shaft. So you can start with the poofy Natural Relaxed texture and end up with Regular Relaxed tresses, based on the amount of heat used on the hair shaft. The important thing to remember about flat irons and the like is that hair is prone to damage from excessive heat and hair abuse just as your own naturally growing hair would be. You don’t want to use these tools too often and a heat protector should be used along with it. You basically don’t want to “fry” the hair to a limp state.

When deciding on a texture, pick one out based on your hair preference and the amount of grooming you think you’re up for. You can usually flat iron each texture to a silkier state. So for a Natural Relaxed, you can flat iron to a Coarse or Regular Relaxed. You can flat iron the Coarse relaxed to a Regular relaxed and so forth. The flat iron will smooth out the hair shaft.

We often get asked whether curly or wavy styles can be flat ironed. The answer is yes but there are some textures where we recommend against it. With afro curly and tight waves it is generally better to just have a second straight wig at hand than going through the labor of flat ironing out all the curls. As long as you have not brought about any heat damage to the hair, it will revert back to the curly state when moisture hits it again (humidity/washing etc.). However, the general rule of thumb is to avoid excessive heat on hair that has gone through chemical processing already. Extra curly hair typically needs more constant heat to straighten and this heat can contribute to dryness and breakage. This is why it’s just better to have a straight wig to alternate with. With the alternate use, both wigs will last longer.
