Absolutely NOT!!! Although it is a smart thing to ask, the answer is...NO!! If you apply heat to your synthetic hair...it will fry and there will be no going back or fixing your damaged lady. Accidents do happen, but stay away from things such as the oven as well, because one quick blast of heat and your lady is damaged forever!! (So, if you are looking to style your wig / topper, consider a human hair piece).
A wig that is hand-tied means that each strand of hair has been tied into the cap by a person vs a machine. The hand-tied / lace front wigs allow the scalp to show underneath the wig. It gives it a more natural look and feel. That being said, machine-tied is not a bad option. Since it is an open wefted cap, it is known to be cooler and not as hot during spring and summer time. The hand-tied is more expensive because you are paying for a more natural look and more comfortable cap that doesn't tend to bunch up at the top / back. It all comes down to preference and which cap the customer is comfortable with.
The best type of wig if one is going to be wearing it everyday, is a shorter length wig, either hand-tied or machine-tied. We would recommend a hand-tied cap for a more comfortable everyday feeling. The really long hair wigs tend to get tangled and frizzy on the ends as time goes by. Wearing the longer wigs for a special occasion instead of every day is what we would recommend.
This is a question that many people have not only felt, but asked us numerous times. Some wonder if they are crazy for being so torn and upset over the loss of their hair. The answer to that is...NO you are NOT crazy, and YES you CAN be upset. Cancer patients that know chemo is going to take their hair are often devastated, and rightfully so. Cancer has already taken so many things from them, why does it get to take away someone's hair too? To many people, their hair is a part of them; it is what makes them feel pretty and confident. For people losing their hair outside of chemo, due to stress or alopecia, it is still okay to feel remorse over your hair falling out every single day. Do not feel guilty or as if you shouldn't be complaining because "other people have it worse". You are ALLOWED to be upset, you are ALLOWED to feel down and feel like you're losing self-esteem. That is why WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU find the hair that you want and LOVE, and to make you feel confident again. No matter what the reason is...losing your hair and watching it fall out is tragic and you have every right to be upset, so let US help YOU!
