It seems all to often women are being told that the wig they are purchasing is "real hair", or "human" hair. They may very well BE "human hair", but what perchantage is human hair, and what quality is the hair you are purchasing?
Just the other day at one of my wig consultations for a cancer client, I was shown a wig that the client recently purchased from a wig store in the Valley. The woman spoke in tears as she had spent $350.00 on a wig that was sold to her as "Human Hair". The woman told me it looked beautiful until the first time she had attempted to wash it. It almost instantly became one tangled, mushy mess, that was impossible to even attempt to get a comb through. Upon examining the tangled mess that resembled a bad dolls hair, I had to give her the bad news. She basically bought another costume wig. Yes, this wig could have been "human", but of the lowest quality. Wigs can also be sold as human hair, but can be mixed with synthetic hair, resulting in the tangled mess she got taken for. It sadens me to think that women are getting ripped off, as they put their trust into a business that supposedly "specializes" in wigs.
It seems all to often women are being told that the wig they are purchasing is "real hair", or "human" hair. They may very well BE "human hair", but what "percentage" is human hair, and what quality is the hair you are purchasing?
Through out the 6 years since creating my "in home" wig service, Love For Locks, I have unfortunately listened to one too many horror stories of women that got "took" on their sopposedly "Human Hair" wigs. Before even examining the wig, the tip off that they got "took" is after hearing what they paid. I am sorry to say, but you cannot purchase a high quality 100% Human Hair wig for $300.00 or less. I cannot stress enough, if you are told the wig you are purchasing if "REAL" (real "what"?) or "Human Hair", and cost as little as $300 or less - DO NOT BUY!!
This goes for wigs on the Internet as well as wigs in a wig or beauty supply. (Please note: this does NOT apply if you are purchasing an African American wig, as these are made with a different type of hair, and will always be less expensive than Remy or European type hair.)
We at Love For Locks In Home Wig Service, sells only the highest quality Human Hair. We know our manufacturers personally, and would never sell any wig to anyone with out knowing exactly what type of hair are in the wigs. We only sell 100% Human Hair, made from Remy, European, or Indian hair.
My heart goes out to those who have been sold a low quality wig by anyone, , after assuming they were getting something that they would be proud to wear. My service is to not only provide a personal, private wig shopping experience to those in need of alternative hair, but also to take the time to educate these women on how to wear their wigs, what they are getting, and how to care for their wigs once they get it home.
