Wig, Ponytail & Kit Care Tips
Wigs By Deidra's Longevity
Wigs purchased by me can last for 1 YEAR + with proper care! Please follow these tips thoroughly to insure longevity. If you were your units regularly I suggest washing them every 1-2 weeks. My wigs are made with high quality Virgin Hair but human hair needs to be taken care of properly to maintain its moisture, luster and prevent breakage.
Lace Closure & Lace Frontal Care Tips
*My closures and frontals are lightly bleached, please keep that in mind if you decide to further bleach your knots! * When bleaching your knots remember to follow the instructions of your bleach, DO NOT use anything higher than 30 vol developer. I HIGHLY recommend SEALING YOUR KNOTS (after bleaching & customizing), this step is often forgotten but is very important. Knots weaken from the bleach and styling over time, I recommend ‘Walker Tape Top Loc Knot Sealer’. Other brands are available.
Straight Hair Care Tips
Wavy & Curly Care Tips
Detangle while WET from ends to weft. I recommend ‘Garnier Fructis Curl Nourish’ shampoo, conditioner and the leave in ' Air Dry Butter Cream' for my Wavy/Curly, Deep Curly, Kinky Curly & Afro Curly Textures. 'Dove Intensive Repair' Shampoo & Conditioner can also be a good alternative. Although Co-washing is best for curly hair, I do recommend that you shampoo every other wash to prevent product build up!
Colored Hair Tips
Wigs, Half Up Half Down kits & Ponytails that have been colored requires more upkeep (especially styles that have been double processed such as the 'Ciara' & 'Cinnamon' units. I suggest shampooing with sulfate free/color safe shampoos only & deep conditioning with 'Avanti Silicon Mix Hair Treatment' every wash. Use the suggested leave in conditioner above according to the texture purchased. Red hair dyes are known to BLEED EXCESSIVELY! Please try to avoid products containing sulfates and wash with cold-cool water to maintain the color.
These product recommendations are based on the wigs & ponytails that 'I' sell, these products may or may not work on hair purchased elsewhere. ALL products have been used and tested on ALL textured mentioned and will work well if used properly. Products may or may not work well if mixed with other products not mentioned. If you choose to use different products please do NOT use too many products. Product overload can cause build up which can lead to tangling or matting!
