Everything About Body Wave Wig

Body wave hair is a highly sought-after hairstyle, typically characterized by hair that forms an S-like shape with loose curls throughout.

A well-executed body wave hairstyle exudes classic beauty, appearing natural, full, and sexy. Among various curly hairstyles, body wave styles closely resemble straight hair, with its S-shape being the largest and most open.

Keswigs is a wig maker that has created many high-quality wigs. Over the years, we’ve worked with fantastic hairstylists and celebrities, introducing numerous top-notch wigs. Body wave hair wigs are one of our signature products.

A high quality body wave wigs are usually made with HD lace and virgin hair, remy hair will do the job as well but just can last shorter time. A good body wave wig can easily switch between different styles, like temporarily turning into deep curls, deep waves, or being straightened – all of which are simple to achieve.

How long does body wave hair last?

With proper care, based on our experience, the S-like curl shape in most of our body wave wigs can last for at least 15 washes. But if the curls are lost, you can easily restore the hair using different heatless or heat styling methods.

How to Maintain Body Wave Wig?

Here are some useful tips for maintaining body wave hair.

Get your hair installed and removed by a professional unless you’re very experienced.
When sleeping with your body wave wig, be sure to wrap it with a silk scarf.

If you buy a body wave wig, compared to a straight hair wig, you’ll need more effort to maintain it. This is because the hair cuticles on body wave hair point in different directions, making it more prone to friction and causing some hair cuticles to fall off. So you want to make sure of every wash to restore your wig.

How to Wash Body Wave Wig

Keeping your wig clean is essential to extend it’s lifespan. When you wash your body wave wig, try to avoid brushing your wigs with a regular hair brush or comb. We recommend using deep moisturizing products after washing your body wave hair wigs, such as deep conditioner and hair mask.

Avoid brushing your wig when it’s wet! Make use of brushes or combs designed for wigs. However, at times, you may choose to gently brush it with your fingers as it’s more gentle.

How to Style Body Wave Wig

Apply a layer of hair oil on the hair before heat styling your body wave wig (or all sort of curly hair wig.). However, be sure not to apply too much as the least thing you want is an oil and collapsed hairstyle.

Typically, our in-house hairstylists will apply about 5 drops of hair oil or a small amount of leave-in conditioner in the palm, rub a bit to warm up the oil, then apply it to the hair. If you’re applying hair oil to your body wave wig, be careful to avoid the lace area, leaving about 1-2 cm of space.

What is Virgin Hair?

In the world of human hair wigs and hair extensions, virgin hair refers to hair collected from a single donor, with all the hair cuticles pointing in the same direction. Unlike other types of hair used to make human hair wigs and extensions, such as remy hair and non-remy hair, virgin hair undergoes minimal (or almost non) physical and chemical processing.

This is also why virgin human hair is called unprocessed virgin hair.

Keswigs is a wig maker specialized in crafting human hair wigs. Over the years, we have collaborated with numerous hairstylists and celebrities to produce various high-quality human hair wigs.

Some hair vendors might emphasize that their virgin hair is not processed with hair dye or bleach. While it’s true that when we purchase virgin hair, it’s essential to ensure that it has not been chemically treated for quality assurance, the most crucial factor is whether the hair comes from the same donor.

If you want to learn more about virgin hair and other real human hair types like remy hair, you can check out this article: “Virgin Hair vs Remy Hair

Virgin Hair: The Best Hair for Wigs, Weaves, and Extensions.

If you seek healthy, beautiful, and long-lasting hair, virgin hair is undoubtedly the optimal choice. Retaining nearly the same cuticle structure as natural hair and free from chemical damage, virgin hair stands out as a superior option.

Virgin hair offers maximum flexibility. Even after purchasing high-quality virgin hair wigs or extensions, should you decide to change the color or style down the line, these wigs can still be dyed, bleached, and styled.

Hair dye, hair bleach, and styling products can damage your hair quality, if the hair itself is not of the best quality (the hair cuticles are already somewhat damaged), it may become soft and weak.

Here at Keswigs, we do offer colored virgin hair wigs, you might wonder if these colored hairs are still considered virgin hair. The answer is yes, as long as they are obtained from a single donor and have not undergone bleaching when purchased.

If you are planning to get a colored human hair wig, try to go for one made with virgin hair to still get a fabulous wig that can last a very long time.

How Long Does Virgin Hair Last?

Typically, virgin hair can last for at least a year with proper care. However, if it’s virgin hair wigs crafted by Keswigs, they often have a lifespan of two years or more.

Taking good care of your virgin hair wigs or extensions includes the following aspects: brush, wash and clean your wigs regularly, use conditioner, hair oil, and hair masks, store your wigs correctly, and avoid excessive heat styling.

What is Virgin Remy Hair?

When you come across the term “remy,” it actually refers to remy hair, which is a different hair type from virgin hair. However, many hair vendors are savvy to the fact that virgin hair can fetch a higher price and is more attractive to buyers. Consequently, they incorporate the term “virgin” to highlight the quality of their wigs/extensions.

Yet, in reality, “virgin remy hair” products cannot compare to wigs/extensions crafted from authentic virgin hair.

Tools Needed To Wash A Human Hair Wig At Home

Before cleaning your human hair wigs, make sure to prepare the following supplies.

Wig brush or a wide-tooth comb: Before washing your wig, gently detangle it to prevent any knots or tangles from worsening during the washing process. A wig brush or wide-tooth comb is ideal.

Mild shampoo: Use a mild shampoo formulated explicitly for human hair wigs to avoid damaging the hair fibers. Use shampoos that are sulfate-free and have a low pH balance.

Conditioner: After shampooing your wig, use a conditioner to restore moisture and prevent the hair fibers from becoming dry and brittle. A leave-in conditioner is also a great option, as it can provide ongoing hydration and detangling.

Towel: A clean towel will come in handy for gently patting your wig dry after washing. Avoid using a rough or textured towel, as it can cause frizz and damage the hair fibers.

Wig stand or mannequin head: A wig stand or mannequin head will help your wig maintain its shape and prevent it from tangling while it dries. You can improvise with a tall vase if you don’t have a wig stand or mannequin head.

Spritzer bottle: A spritzer bottle filled with water can help dampen your wig during washing, especially if you’re you’re not submerging it in water.

Step-By-Step Method Of Washing A Human Hair Wig At Home

Here’s a step-by-step process:

Step 1: Brush or Comb the Wig

Start by gently detangling your wig using a wig brush or wide-tooth comb. Begin at the ends of the hair, working your way up to the roots, and take your time to avoid pulling or tugging the hair fibers.

Take a look at this article for detailed steps on how to brush your human hair wig.

Step 2: Fill a Sink or Basin with Lukewarm Water

Fill a sink or basin with lukewarm water, ensuring it’s not too hot, as high temperatures can damage the hair fibers. Add a small amount of mild shampoo to the water and swirl with your hand to create suds.

Step 3: Submerge the Wig

Pro Tips: If you have an HD lace wig, you should handle the cleaning process more gently. Firstly, HD lace wigs are usually more expensive. Secondly, HD lace is more transparent, delicate and hence more fragile to achieve a more natural hair-like effect, so it requires more careful handling.

Step 4: Rinse the Wig

After a few minutes, remove the wig from the water and rinse it thoroughly under running water until all the shampoo suds are removed. Gently squeeze out any excess water, but avoid wringing or twisting the hair fibers.

Step 5: Apply Conditioner

Apply a small amount of conditioner to the wig, focusing on the ends of the hair. Avoid applying conditioner to the roots to avoid buildup or greasiness on the wig. Use your fingers or a wide tooth comb to distribute the conditioner evenly through the hair fibers.

Step 6: Rinse the Wig Again

Rinse the wig under running water until all the conditioner is removed. Gently squeeze out excess water, but avoid twisting or rubbing the hair fibers.

Step 7: Pat dry

Lay a clean towel on a flat surface and place the wig on top. Gently pat the wig with the towel to remove any excess water. Be careful not to rub or twist the hair fibers. You can also use a gentle and absorbent microfiber towel to pat dry your wig.

Step 8: Air dry

Place the wig on a wig stand or mannequin head and let it air dry completely before storing it. Avoid using heat tools or styling products on the wig until it is fully dry. You can also use a hairdryer on the cold setting to speed up the drying process, but hold it at least 12 inches away from the wig to avoid heat damage.

How To Wear A Lace Front Wig Without Glue Or Tape

Have you ever struggled to secure your lace front wig with a lace glue or tape? If so, you’re not alone. 

Over the years, we have worked with many hairstylists who have shared valuable tips with us. This article will discuss installing a lace front wig without glue or tape. 

Wearing a lace front wig doesn’t have to be daunting. You can achieve a natural and secure look without glue or tape with the right tools and techniques. 

So, let’s get started!

Tools Needed

You’ll need the following tools:

  • Bobby Pins: These will help secure the wig and prevent it from shifting.
  • Scissors: If it’s a new lace front wig, you may need to trim the lace on the wig with scissors or a razor so it can perfectly fit your hairline.
  • Wig Grip Band: This will keep the wig in place and prevent slippage. The wig grip band is worn underneath the wig to provide a non-slip surface.
  • Comb or Brush: Once it’s in place, you will need a comb or brush to style the wig.

Step-By-Step Procedure

Here’s a step-by-step process for wearing a lace front wig without glue or tape.

Step 1: Prepare your hair

Before putting on your wig, ensure your hair is tidy. Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair, then divide it into small sections. 

It’s best to create cornrows or braids that lay flat on your head and provide a smooth surface to clip the wig on. Use a wig grip band to hold your wig in place for a firmer grip and non-slip surface.

Step 2: Position the wig

Wear the wig and adjust it to fit comfortably. Open all the clips on the wig and fit them into your natural hair. The ear tabs should align with your ears, and the wig should sit snugly on your head. Make sure the wig’s hairline is also aligned with your natural hairline. If the wig is too tight or loose, use the adjustable straps at the back to adjust the fit.

Step 3: Secure the clips

Use the combs or clips inside the wig cap to secure the wig in place. Start at the front of the wig and work your way back. Be sure to insert the clips directly into your natural hair. Begin at the front hairline and clip each section of the wig down, ensuring the clips or combs are secure. 

Then, slowly work your way towards the back of the wig. Avoid pulling too tightly, as this can cause headaches. Use pressure-sensitive clips instead of metal ones for a more comfortable fit.

If you want, you can also use bobby pins to hold the wig in place further. Place the pins on the wig’s ear tabs, sides, and back, then attach them to your natural hair for more security.

Step 4: Check the wig

Shake your head slightly to check if anything is slipping. If you feel any movement, secure the clips more tightly or consider sewing in more clips. Adjust the wig till it sits comfortably and looks natural. Use your fingers to smooth out any bumps or lumps.

Step 5: Style as desired

Use scissors to trim any excess lace from the wig. Cut the lace carefully and follow the shape of your natural hairline.

Once the wig is secured, you can style it to your liking. Use a rat-tail comb to separate the hair at the lace part. You can also use concealer or foundation to blend the lace part with your skin tone.

If the wig is curly or wavy, use a curling iron or hot rollers to enhance the curls or waves. On the other hand, if you want to straighten the wig, use a flat iron on a low-heat setting. However, use a heat-protectant spray before curling or straightening to prevent damage to the hair.


Here are some frequently asked questions about how to wear a lace front wig without glue or tape and their quick answers.

Can I Wear A Lace Front Wig Without Glue Or Tape If I Have A Sensitive Scalp?

A lace front wig without glue or tape is an excellent option for anyone with a sensitive scalp. Wig glue or tape can sometimes cause irritation or allergic reactions, so not using them is a safer and more comfortable option.

What Type Of Lace Front Wig Do You Wear Without Wig Tape Or Glue?

You can wear any lace front wig without tape or glue, provided the wig has combs or clips inside the wig cap. The combs or clips will help secure the wig. Check if it has combs or clips when shopping for a lace front wig. In addition, wig clips will work better when clipped directly to your natural hair (or braided).

Can I Swim Or Exercise While Wearing A Lace Front Wig Without Glue Or Tape?

Swimming or exercising while wearing a lace front wig without glue or tape is not recommended. It may loosen the wig and cause it to shift or fall off. It’s best to remove the wig before engaging in any strenuous activities.

How to Brush a Wig

In the realm of wig care, washing and brushing your wig constitute crucial steps in maintaining its cleanliness and overall condition.

No matter you are wearing an HD lace wig, lace front wig, or full lace wig, learning how to brush your wig properly and maintain it will keep it in good shape for a longer time. This article will review the proper way to brush your wig. Let’s start!

How to Brush a Wig

Gentleness is the key to brushing a wig. Too much force can tear hair strands out of wigs since they are considerably more sensitive than your real hair. Be patient and take your time for the best outcome! 

Follow these steps to brush your wig often and adequately to maintain its appearance and keep it appearing brand-new.

Never Brush a Wig When Wet

When your hair is wet, it is weakest, which means it is most vulnerable to damage. Thus, brushing your wet wig can actually permanently stretch and damage it. Make sure your wig is completely dry before brushing to prevent this.

Untangle the Hair

Start by using your fingers to carefully detangle any knots or tangles in the wig to make brushing it later on easier.

Brush the Wig

After detangling any possible knots, carefully brush the wig from the bottom upwards using a wig brush or a wide-tooth comb. Avoid brushing the wig from the roots to the ends since this might damage or tangle the hair more.

Make Sure it is Secure

Ensure the wig is secure while brushing it to keep it from falling off your head. You can also use a wig mannequin or stand to make brushing easier.

Be Careful When Brushing

Be gentle and avoid pulling or twisting on the hair. Instead, take your time and remember to apply a soft touch to remove all the tangles and knots completely.

Spray the Hair

If the wig is very tangled or knotted, apply a detangling spray or conditioner to make it easier to brush through.

Style Your Wig

Once you are done brushing, you can style your wig in any way you like. Read this article for useful tips to style your wig.

How to Maintain a Wig

Learning how to brush your wig properly is important, but you should also be aware of other ways to maintain it. Proper maintenance is essential to keep your wig looking its best and prolong its lifespan. By carefully following these tips, you can maintain your wig and keep it looking fantastic for a long time.

Regular Wig Washing

If you use your wig frequently, wash it after every six to eight wears. Use shampoo and conditioner made specifically for synthetic hair or human hair wigs.

Proper Wig Storing

To keep the wig’s shape and form when not in use, store it in its original box, a silk bag, or a plastic container, or put it on a mannequin head or wig stand. Avoid keeping the wig in a humid atmosphere or where the wig is subjected to direct sunlight.

Avoid Excessive Heat

Using heat-styling equipment like flat irons or curling irons on the wig, use a heat-protectant spray to keep the heat relatively low. This only applies to human hair wigs. Never use heat on synthetic wigs, which could melt off its fibers.

Careful Drying

Avoid excessive towel rubbing when drying the wig after washing. For best results, gently pat the wig with a microfiber towel to absorb any excess moisture, then leave it to air dry.

Do Not Sleep with a Wig On 

Before bed, remove the wig to prevent tangling and damage. If you must sleep with the wig on, wrap a silk scarf or a silk hair cap over your head, and sleep with silk or satin pillows.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Hairspray and other styling products may contain harsh chemicals. Make sure to meticulously check them if they contain harmful substances, as they may harm the wig.

Use Quality Hair Products

High-quality hair products, like wig shampoos and mild conditioners, can keep your wig healthy and looking great. Avoid using regular shampoo, as its sulfates will dry off your wig.

How Often Should You Brush Your Wig

How often you brush your wig will vary on several factors, including how frequently you wear it and how tangled it gets. 

In general, brushing your wig every day will help avoid tangles and keep it in shape. But if you wear a wig daily, it is ideal to brush twice a day, especially if you’re active or spend a lot of time in windy or humid conditions.

In contrast, if you occasionally wear a wig, you might only need to brush it once a week or every few days.

If provided, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for wig maintenance. If you want to know how to maintain a custom-made wig properly, seek advice from a professional wig stylist.


Here are some frequently asked questions relating to brushing a wig and their quick answers:

Can you brush a wig with a normal hair brush?

No, avoid using a normal hairbrush on a wig. Wigs are more delicate than natural hair, so they require something gentler. Using a regular wig brush may destroy the wig’s fiber or shape.

Wig brushes are usually smaller and softer because they come with looped nylon bristles so that they won’t destroy the lace or hair base. The shape of wig brushes is generally curved or contoured, so it’s easier to style the wigs.

What are the best brush for wigs?

A wide-toothed comb or a brush with looped nylon bristles will work great for wigs. You may also want to keep soft, rounded teeth brushes. With these three types of brushes, you can detangle and style your hair effortlessly.

Wrapping Up

Aftercare is critical. Now that you know how to properly maintain and brush a wig, remember to always be gentle and take your time when caring for your wig to get the best results.

Hair Cuticle and Hair Health

(This article is written by Dr. Ahmed Zayed, MD)

Everyone wants healthy and shiny or bouncy hair. Whether you’re rocking your hair, extensions, or wigs, you want to have smooth and healthy locks. That’s not too much to ask.

When it comes to hair health, it’s crucial to understand how different parts work and why hair cuticles are so important. This is particularly the case for people who wear human hair wigs and extensions. In this post, you’re going to learn everything about it.

Read on for more information about hair cuticles and their importance to healthy hair. 

What is Healthy Hair?

Healthy hair is defined as hair with a smooth texture and clean-cut ends or tapered tips. Both texture and shine of hair are related to hair surface properties, whereas hair end integrity is linked to the hair cortex. Hair can be healthy regardless of appearance, curly or straight. However, curly hair is more susceptible to damage and tangling than straight hair. 

Signs of healthy hair, besides shiny and smooth texture, include:

  • Good elasticity
  • Minimal shedding
  • Voluminous and bouncy hair
  • Detangles easily
  • Not dry or rough and lifeless to the touch 
  • Minimum breakage
  • Responds well to moisture
  • No dandruff

Functions of Different Parts of Hair

We can divide the hair into parts below and above the skin. Below, we will focus on parts above the skin, i.e., the hair shaft.

The hair shaft is the visible part of the hair, i.e., the part that sticks out of the skin. A protein called keratin comprises the hair shaft. As a remarkably strong protein, keratin is resistant to wear and tear. 

Two kinds of bonds hold keratin together. They are disulfide bonds and hydrogen bonds. The latter is less durable than disulfide bonds but is more numerous. Hydrogen bonds give your hair flexibility. 

The hair shaft contains three layers. They are:

  • Cuticle – the outer layer of the hair shaft and the most significant part of your hair. This thin, colorless layer’s primary function is to protect the cortex. The cuticle is comprised of overlapping cells that look like fish scales. Healthy cuticles are flat and smooth. Not only do healthy cuticles give your hair shine and act as a protective barrier, but they also minimize moisture movement in and out of the cortex. That way, your hair maintains a delicate hydration balance and flexibility.
  • Cortex – the middle layer of the hair shaft. The main function of the cortex is to provide color, strength, and texture to the hair fiber. Long keratin filaments make up the cortex. Both disulfide and hydrogen bonds hold together these filaments.
  • Medulla – the deepest layer of the hair shaft, only seen in thick and large hairs. In other words, the medulla isn’t always present, whereas the cortex and cuticles are. The medulla comprises a thin and soft core of transparent cells and air spaces. 

Why is Healthy Hair Shiny, Bouncy, Won’t Tangle, and Responds Well to Moisture?

Healthy hair is shiny due to keratin. Insufficient levels of keratin make your hair dry and brittle. As a result, hair breaks and sheds easily, loses playfulness and volume, and becomes dull or lifeless. 

When it comes to tangling, it all comes down to cuticles. Hair doesn’t tangle when cuticles are healthy. On the flip side, damaged cuticles make forming knots easier. The relationship between hair cuticles and hair health is discussed in greater detail further in this post.

Responding well to moisture means healthy hair retains its natural texture. Straight hair should remain straight, curly hair should remain curly. One of the most significant signs of unhealthy hair is an inadequate response to moisture, i.e., hair fails to retain its texture.  

What Causes Damaged Hair?

Our hair is exposed to environmental influences at all times. Many people struggle with hair damage, which goes beyond split ends. The most common causes of hair damage include:

  • Hair dye – chemical dyes contain harsh ingredients that remove natural moisture, thus making hair coarse and rough to the touch
  • Bleach – leaves hair porous, dry, fragile, and brittle. Since it can induce permanent changes in hair structure, bleach also reduces the strength and elasticity of your hair.
  • Heat styling – tends to “cook” hair fibers, leaving hair porous and causing raised cuticles. Hair is more prone to damage in persons who use heat tools often.
  • Not getting haircuts regularly – failing to get regular haircuts is a common cause of dry and split ends.
  • Over-brushing – while most people don’t think that way, brushing hair too much can cause breakage.
  • Towel drying – rubbing wet hair with a towel can cause various problems, including frizz, breakage, and accelerated damage. After all, wet hair breaks more easily than dry hair.
  • Unhealthy diet – nutrition is one of the most important aspects of natural hair health. An unhealthy diet prevents you from getting enough vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients necessary for healthy hair. Insufficient intake of Omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, protein, vitamin D, and iron leads to dry, dull, and brittle hair. Severe nutrient deficiencies may cause more significant damage and hair loss.
  • Tight hairstyle – using very tight elastic bands to tie hair up or regularly wearing tight hairstyles such as buns, braids, and cornrows can cause hair damage and breakage.

Other causes of hair damage include prolonged sun exposure, thyroid disorders, hair disorders, and cold air temperatures, to name a few. 

Relationship Between Hair Cuticles and Hair Health

Of all hair parts, cuticles are probably the most essential for hair health. What’s the connection here? We can easily describe the hair cuticle as a guardian due to its protective properties that keep the inner layers of the hair strand safe from damage. In other words, a healthy cuticle is necessary for a healthy cortex and medulla. This translates to healthy and shiny hair. On the flip side, unhealthy cuticles pave the way to damage to the inner parts of the hair shaft and the ensuing hair damage.

A November 2021 review from the International Journal of Cosmetic Science confirmed that rapid cuticle degradation makes hair more vulnerable to mechanical insults. Hair quality is also compromised in this case. 

The telltale sign of damaged cuticles is thinner hair that is rough to the touch. At the same time, your hair isn’t bouncy and shiny anymore. Instead, it appears dull and lifeless, tangles easily, and doesn’t respond well to moisture. Lower-grade hair is particularly prone to damage, and all these problems make it challenging to handle. 

You see, comb waste is used to make lower-grade hair extensions, for example. In this case, hair is all over the place, i.e., not tamed. Instead, it points in different directions. Hair tangling is bound to ensure. 

Frustrating hair knots are strongly associated with unhealthy or damaged cuticles. Healthy cuticles are closed and smooth. However, damaged cuticles are open, and layers become snagged on each other. They’re getting in each other’s way. This “commotion” leads to knots or tangles. The more damaged the hair cuticle, the more tangled the hair becomes.

When it comes to hair tangling, it’s helpful to mention curly hair is more prone to this problem than straight hair. Why? The answer is simple: curly hair tends to be drier than straight hair, so the curls tend to mat together. Additionally, curly hair is difficult to subdue. Since the locks and cuticles point in different directions, it’s easy for knots to form. Open cuticles tend to rub against one another, which is intensified in curly hair and makes it more likely to tangle.

Low-grade extensions today are usually straight. Since tangling is a common problem, many manufacturers use chemicals to remove the cuticles. The theory is that even if the hair gets all mixed up, it isn’t supposed to form knots. 

That’s not entirely a wise idea. Keep in mind that the cuticle works to extend the life of the hair, and it also gives hair its sensual shine and luster. Removing the cuticle also eliminates the integrity of hair and compromises its quality. Remember that the cuticle is a protective layer. That means once this important layer is removed, hair becomes fragile. While the main idea is to prevent tangling, the reality is different, and hair may start tangling like crazy. 

Why? It’s easy; it all comes down to the damaged cuticles and hair pointing in different directions. They’re getting in each other’s way, and knots form easily. This explains why many people with non-Remy hair complain about the constant tangling of their extensions. 

How do You Protect Hair Cuticles?

Healthy hair cuticles are vital for shiny and bouncy hair. Since they’re prone to damage, it’s essential to know how to protect the cuticles. These tips can help you out:

  • Choose pH-balancing products – the cuticles respond to the pH value of the substances and products we use. Hair generally “prefers” a pH of 4 to 5.5. Cuticles remain closed and smooth when pH is in this range. For that reason, you need to choose products such as shampoos, conditioners, or styling items wisely. Make sure their pH value is within this optimal range. Most manufacturers don’t print pH values on the labels, but you can use testing strips to find out.
  • Use mild heat – since constant heat styling is an enemy to healthy cuticles and hair in general, you may want to reconsider your techniques. Instead of direct heat from curling irons and other instruments, you may opt for mild and indirect heat. Good examples are a hot towel wrapped around the head, a hooded dryer, and a hair steamer. Use mild heat styling methods when you deep condition your hair.
  • Moisture and hair oil – your cuticles and hair, for that matter, need moisture and nourishment. That’s where hair oils and creams step in. These products can seal the cuticle and thereby prevent knots and other problems.
  • Use silk or satin pillowcases – cotton pillowcases aren’t exactly hair-friendly and may further contribute to damaged cuticles and hair tangling. Satin or silk pillowcases are a much better option because they’re gentle and don’t produce friction as cotton does
  • See your hairstylist regularly – hairstylists don’t recommend follow-up appointments for no reason. They do so because regular visits are necessary for healthy hair. This is especially true for people who wear extensions; you must ensure they’re perfectly okay and healthy.

Should I Get Wigs or Hair extensions Without Cuticles?

Whether you should get hair extensions without cuticles is a personal decision. However, from a professional point of view, hair with cuticles (Remy hair, virgin hair) are a much better option. Cuticle hairpieces are the finest on the market. Since the cuticle is entirely intact, hair strands have better quality. Also, these hairpieces are less likely to tangle. 

You should ask the stylist to opt for cuticle alignment when it comes to wigs and extensions. That means that all cuticles should point in the same direction. Cuticles don’t point in the same direction, meaning your extensions could be prone to tangling. That’s exactly what you want to avoid. 

While wigs and extensions without cuticles (Non remy hair) may appear lovely, they’re less durable than wigs and extensions with cuticles. That means Virgin and Remy hair, i.e., those with cuticles, are a far better investment.

In the realm of human hair wigs and extensions, virgin hair retains the hair cuticles in their most pristine state, making it the highest-quality and healthiest human hair type.

Remy hair, although some of its hair cuticles have been removed, still preserves a significant portion of them, all aligned in the same direction, providing protective benefits for the hair.

On the other hand, non-remy hair stands as the lowest-quality human hair because it has essentially lost most of its hair cuticles, rendering it unable to retain moisture and nutrients within the hair.

We have written several articles about different hair types. Do check them out for a better understanding:


Hair contains several parts, but the cuticles are absolutely crucial for its health, shine, and playfulness. As a protective layer, the cuticle shields other parts of the hair. That’s why it’s prone to damage that may jeopardize the integrity and quality of your hair.

Damaged cuticles lead to unhealthy and lifeless hair and frustrating knots. Therefore, you need to focus on hair care and choose your extensions or wigs wisely. Also, a healthy lifestyle equals healthy hair. 

Virgin Hair vs Remy Hair

Wigs are popular fashion accessories worn in place of hair to change or complete a look. Two of the best quality wigs and hair extensions are virgin hair and Remy hair. Both virgin and Remy hair are made up of 100 percent natural human hair.

This article will discuss the key differences between virgin and Remy hair wigs so you can carefully consider your choices before swiping to get the most out of your shopping. 

So if you want to learn more, read on!

Virgin Hair vs Remy Hair

There are three types of human hairs—virgin, Remy, and non-Remy. But for this article, we will only focus on virgin hair and Remy hair.

Though they are both made entirely of human hair, they differ significantly. Virgin human hair has never undergone chemical treatments or dyeing. Remy hair, has undergone physical and chemical processing to align the hair cuticles in one direction.

Virgin Hair

Virgin hair has undergone zero chemical processing, including dyeing, bleaching, and perming. This is the fundamental distinction between virgin and Remy hair.

Typically, virgin hair is carefully removed from a single donor, specifically young women with long, thick, healthy hair. Collecting a significant amount of hair from a single donor can be challenging, and this is why virgin hair is the rarest and most expensive type of hair, superior even to Remy hair.

So when comparing the quality of virgin hair versus Remy hair, virgin hair takes the top spot. 

Remy Hair

Remy hairs are collected from different donors. Hairs collected are physically treated with remy machine then, followed by chemical processing.

Its most significant feature is its cuticles, which are still aligned in a single path from the root to tip. This lessens tangling and matting and makes it more manageable and high-quality compared to regular human hair (non-Remy hair) wigs.

We have written a detailed article about Remy hair wigs, do take a look via here.

Similarities and Difference

Virgin hair and Remy hair are both good choices for wigs or extensions and can be treated like your own hair. Here is a list of their similarities and differences:


  • Virgin and Remy hair are real human hair. If you burn them, both of them will turn into ashes. 
  • Both of them can be dyed, heat styled, and turned into various hairstyles.


  • Virgin hair has more cuticles left on the hair strands than Remy hairs
  • Virgin hair can be dyed and bleached to any color, remy hair can only dye to a darker color
  • Remy hair may come from multiple donors while virgin hair comes from a single donor
  • Virgin hair is more expensive than Remy hair since it’s of higher quality, rarer, and very in demand.
  • The lifespan of Remy hair is shorter than Virgin hair, you may expect to spend more time in taking care of remy hair

Below is a photo showing the differences between cuticles on healthy hair and damaged hair. Virgin hair is more on the normal hair side, while Remy hair is more on the damaged hair side because it has gone through chemical processing. We have written an article explaining the importance of hair cuticles for hair health, do check this article out for more information.

Cuticles on virgin hair (normal hair) vs Remy hair (damage hair)

Virgin hair is recommended if you want to have the best quality hair possible. This type of human hair is structurally stronger than chemically processed hair, which means it can better withstand processes like dyeing and heat-styling.

You can choose Remy hair if you want to save money, as it’s still a very high-quality product but cheaper than virgin hair.

The process of maintenance is crucial regardless of which Remy hair or virgin hair you purchase. That means washing your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo and using a light conditioner that won’t wear down your hairpieces. 


We hope that this information was able to help you understand the key differences between virgin and Remy hair, so you can better appreciate what you’re purchasing. You can invest in either Remy or virgin hair as both offer high-quality locks. But for the best, all-natural, untouched hair that is perfect for dyeing and styling, virgin hair is your best bet.

Everything about Bob Wigs

Bob wigs are a fantastic way to change up your look without committing to cutting your hair too short. These wigs are created from either human hair or synthetic hair and are available in various styles and colors to accommodate different looks and facial shapes.

When selecting a bob wig, take into consideration the wig’s density and texture. For people who like a full and bouncy bob, a high-density wig that’s kinky or curly is an excellent option. For a slick, polished bob, go for a medium-density wig with straight hair. 

Keswigs only sells high quality bob wigs that can be heat-styled, dyed, and cut, making them a supremely versatile choice for people looking for natural-looking wigs.

What are Synthetic Wigs/Bob Wigs

Synthetic hair wigs are wigs constructed from synthetic fibers, intended to resemble human hair in appearance and feel. They often cost less than real hair wigs and need less maintenance because they don’t need to be washed or styled as much.

How do Lace Front Wigs Work

These wigs are versatile for daily use or special events, as they can be styled in various ways and are even suitable for heat styling. Lace fronts can also be altered and allow for off-the-face styling. 

How to Use Lace Front Wigs

There are two main ways to wear a lace front wig—with or without glue. Here’s a short guide on how to do both:

How Long can you Wear Lace Front Wigs

It is always a good idea to consult with a trusted hair care professional or stylist for specific recommendations on properly caring for your hair and scalp during and after using a wig.

This article will give you a better idea about how long you can wear a lace front wig.

How Much are Lace Front Wigs

Lace front wigs can range in price, depending on the brand and the quality of the wig. 

Keswigs have a wider price range, with lace front wigs starting as low as $200 and going up to $1000. This is because we only use high-quality human hair in our wigs. 

Wigs made from virgin human hair are the highest quality on the market. This hair is not chemically treated or processed, and it is collected from a single donor, which means all of its cuticles are intact and facing the same direction. This gives it a layer of protection that other human hair wigs don’t have, and makes it less prone to tangling and more resistant to styling.

Hair length is another critical factor. The longer the wig, the more expensive it is, not just because it is more difficult to obtain long human hair (it takes a longer time to grow) but also because the longer the hair, the more demanding the hair quality. Keswigs can produce human hair wigs up to 100 inches long because we only use the best virgin human hair.

Wig density also plays an important role, and it takes a lot more hair and workforce to make a higher-density wig than a low-density wig. Therefore, the price for a full-volume wig would be much higher than a thin one.

At Keswigs, you can be assured that the wigs you pay for are bang for your buck.

Here is an article about the price of wigs.

How to Make Lace Front Wigs Look Natural

If you want your lace front wig to look as natural as possible, there are a few tips you can follow:

Pluck the hairline

For a more realistic-looking hairline, pluck the hairs at the front so that it won’t be too crowded. This will help the wig blend seamlessly with your natural hair.

Use a wig adhesive

Use a wig adhesive along the hairline to keep your wig securely in place and prevent it from slipping. Just be sure to use a small amount and avoid getting the adhesive on your natural hairline, as this can cause it to become stiff and less natural-looking.

Style the wig

After applying your wig, take some time to style it. This may involve using a wig brush or comb to create your desired look or adding a little styling product to give the wig some definition.

For more tips on making your lace front wig look natural, check out our full article on the subject.

How to Style Lace Front Wigs

Use styling products

You can use styling products, such as mousse, gel, or hairspray, to add texture and hold to your wig. Just be sure to use a small amount, as too much product can weigh the wig down and make it look unnatural.

Heat style

Keswigs’ wigs are made of virgin human hair, which can be heat styled. Before using your curling or flat iron, use a heat protectant spray and ensure your device is at its lowest heat setting to prevent damage.


Accessorize your lace front wig with clips, bands, or other hair accessories. These can add a unique touch to your look and help keep your wig in place.

Remember to be gentle when styling your wig to avoid damaging it.

Which is Better: Lace Front or Full Lace Wigs

When deciding between a lace front wig and a full lace wig, it ultimately boils down to personal preference, budget, and the intended use of the wig. Both types of wigs are made from either synthetic fibers or human hair and provide a natural-looking hairline. But there are some significant differences between the two.

For those who want to change their hairstyle with a natural-looking hairline, lace front wigs is an excellent and cheaper alternative. They are also easier to install when compared with full lace wigs.

On the other hand, a full lace wig’s base is made entirely of sheer lace with the hair tied to it. This gives you a hairline that looks more natural. Because the entire cap is made of lace, full lace wigs are more breathable and comfy than lace front wigs and easier to style.

When it comes to versatility, full lace wigs are better, and they are more flexible in terms of styling the hair in updos and being able to part it in any direction. However, they are more expensive than lace front wigs.

Here is a detailed article about lace front wig vs full lace wig.
