Can I use heating products such as straighteners and blow dryers on my wigs/bundles?
If you are wondering whether you can use the same styling tools that you use on your natural hair for your wigs and bundles, the answer is yes. However, there are some small changes that you need to consider making to ensure that your wigs and bundles stay in the best possible condition.
If you are wearing 100% human hair products, it is advisable that you use a hair dryer with multiple heat settings. It is best if you use the lowest heat setting, and if you have time, use the cool setting. Using too much heat to dry your roots can make the bonds sticky if the heat is too much to melt the keratin, the fibrous protein forming the main structural constituent of your wigs and bundles.
You can use straighteners, provided you use a product with multiple heat settings. However, unlike hair dryers, it is recommended that you do not use the coolest setting. Using the lowest amount of heat and going over your hair repeatedly to make it straighten is not at all healthy for your hair. It’s good to experiment with different methods to find what settings work the best with your style.
Whether you are using a dryer or a straightener, it is important that you consult your stylist. They will often know the most about your particular type of extension. Call us at 972-232-7253 to learn more about our selection of wigs and bundles and how to best care for them.
