Take the guess work out of choosing your next wig by educating yourself about Raw Hair Wigs!

What is a Raw Hair Wig?

Raw hair wigs are made from 100% human hair that has been carefully collected and sourced from a single donor. The hair is then sewn onto a wig cap.  Wig caps can range from Dome Caps, Lace Caps or Ventilated Caps.  Raw Hair Wigs create a natural-looking and -feeling wig that can be styled just like your own hair. Raw hair wigs are often seen as the highest quality option on the market, as they offer a realistic appearance and luxurious feel. In addition, raw hair wigs are also extremely versatile, as they can be colored, curled, and styled to suit your individual taste. If you're looking for a wig that provides both an incredible look and feel, then a raw hair wig is the perfect option for you.💋


How Do I Care For My Raw Hair Wig?

Raw wigs are the perfect way to achieve a natural look. Unlike wigs made from synthetic fibers, raw wigs are made from 100% human hair. This means that they can be styled and colored just like your own hair. However, raw wigs also require a bit of extra care to keep them looking their best. Here are a few tips for caring for your raw wig:

-Wash your wig regularly with a mild shampoo. Be sure to avoid using any products that contain alcohol, as this can dry out the hair.

-Condition your wig after every wash. This will help to keep the hair soft and manageable.  REMINDER: the strands are not connected to an actual scalp, so try to avoid over washing the hair and condition more often.  TIP: rule of thumb...1x Wash is 2x's Condition.  Condition the hair more than you wash.  If you are unsure, search for a Conditioning Shampoo.  Raw wigs also benefit from occasional deep conditioning treatments.


-Be sure to detangle your wig gently, using a wide-toothed comb or your fingers.

-When drying your wig, pat it dry with a towel rather than rubbing it.  It is better to remove the access water from your wig with a t-shirt.  Allow your wig to air dry whenever possible. 

-Avoid excessive heat styling. Over time, this can damage the hair and cause it to become frizzy and dry.  When working with curly hair, although the curl pattern will revert after the hair is straightened, be mindful that Raw Hair can become heat damaged as well because it is REAL hair.

-Store your wig in a cool, dry place when you're not wearing it. This will help to prolong its lifespan.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your raw wig looking gorgeous for years to come!
