BRUSHES TO USE
Wig Brushes • The Best & Worst • When to use what brush on your wig

BRUSHES • DO THEY MATTER?

So we have often had comments from our lovely customers, including many questions in regard to why we do and do not sell specific types of brushes. 
Which brush is best to use on your brand new topper or wig?
The real question "does it really matter?"

WIG BRUSH TYPE MATTERS - ALWAYS! 

There is more to caring for your wig or topper than just brushing...... we do have guides on the care of your wig and topper based upon hair type, and you can read these within the blogs section. 

DOES BRUSHING MATTER?

So the topic of "HOW" to brush is always a really interesting one. I, myself, never had advice on this from anyone when entering the world of alternative hair. As a result, I trashed many wigs and blamed the wig quality when I was oblivious to the fact - it was my mishandling - absolutely unintentional, but something like a brush or a care product - these things matter immensely. 

It was only in reading the manufacturer guidance online that I realised this really does matter! When we think about it, it does make sense..... but it is not always something that would just jump in to our mind. After all, can we not treat it as we would our biological hair? Sadly, no - this is one area we MUST really pay attention to the differences. 

YOU HAVE MADE AN INVESTMENT

You have spent money on your new hair, and it is not cheap - you have invested in the product that you feel is going to help you feel most like you. 

Care of your item matters, as using the wrong brush - this can result in you causing shedding and balding of your beautiful new topper or wig, and this is absolutely devastating and heart breaking. 

So let us get started on what we recommend and what our educational training has taught us. 

PLEASE NOTE: YOUR WIG MANUFACTURER GUIDANCE IS ALWAYS TO BE FOLLOWED AHEAD OF ANY SELLER ADVICE OR INSTRUCTION. PLEASE ALWAYS FOLLOW MANUFACTURER GUIDANCE

 HOW TO BRUSH YOUR ALTERNATIVE HAIR

This is so important. You must NEVER drag any brush or comb through the hair..... you must start from the bottom in small sections around 1-2 inches and brush down then move up another inch or so. 

We recommend you "finger comb" first - use your hands to gently run through the wig or topper / hair piece and gently detangle. Never pull, never cause tension as this can result in balding. 

So that method of how to do the brushing / combing..... great!  Wait - what do we use? 

A BRUSH FOR EACH HAIR TYPE

• HEAT FRIENDLY SYNTHETIC & STANDARD SYNTHETIC

The heat friendly fibres are some of the most delicate, fine fragile. We recommend (as advised by manufacturers and factories) that you ONLYever use a wide tooth comb created specifically for your alternative hair. These are not the same as wide tooth combs that we would see in a standard hair salon for those with biological hair. 

WIDE TOOTH COMB

NEVER use any form of brush on your heat friendly topper or wig - it WILLcause the fibres to fray, and it causes far too much tension on the roots which will cause the wig and topper to bald or shed - this means that you are likely to have a hair piece that has the appearance of thinning and bald spots. 

BUY WIDE TOOTH COMB FOR YOUR WIG OR TOPPER HERE 

Standard synthetic hair we would also advise only using the wide tooth comb, as manufacturers and factories would also advise. this will help maintain longevity of your new hair piece. 

 

• HUMAN HAIR BRUSHES 

Human hair care is very different from that of synthetic hair. 

We have guides on the care of human hair for you HERE but in regard to brushes, it is also important to use the correct brush type. A wide tooth comb for alternative hair is also appropriate for your human hair wig or topper, and is ideal to carry in your hand bag with you for "on the go."

Paddle brushThe paddle brush shown here is by Jon Renau and is one of our favourites for brushing throughout the day. I (Michelle) carry this in my hand bag on the days that I wear human hair alongside my wide tooth comb. These are gentle, and the soft malleable bristles are gentle and will not pull on a knot. They will not tug on your hair, as they are not rigid and firm.... they are also safe if they touch gentle cap base materials..... this is so important to us all...... safety and maintaining the integrity of our hair and our topper and wig caps / bases is imperative! We love the Jon Renau Paddle Brush on all human hair systems. You can BUY THE JON RENAU PADDLE BRUSH HERE.

As well as brushing and maininting the smooth untangled look to your wig throughout the day...... human hair does require to be styled, and for this we would look for something that has more coarse but safe bristles that work in tangent with your hair, and not pull tug or work against the hair. Wig brush for styling
We would recommend the Jon Renau Boar Bristle brush for styling your human hair wig.
When drying and styling the hair, it will be pinned to a secure canvas cork block head, and this brush is perfect........ it has some plastic rounded bristles intermingled with the boar bristles, and allows for beautiful blow drying without damage. Unlike biological hair that can withstand high levels of heat, your wig or topper should not be styled using a heat retaining brush - please avoid these ceramic and metallic brushes that we would use in a salon for biological hair. We want our wigs to last as long as is practicably possible! 
***********************************

BRUSHES YOU SHOULD AVOID AT ALL COSTS

There are so many brushes available that do have a purpose, and can be used under some circumstances, but as a whole - we would advise you AVOID these........ these are the wire wig brushes that everyone tends to buy as a first brush (believe me, I have done this too, and learned in my own errors).......

WIRE WIG BRUSHES:

- pull on the hair and cause balding / shedding

- can pierce the topper or wig cap and cause tears in the lace or fragile base materials 

- cause friction and frizz to heat friendly and synthetic fibres

- can tear the human hair items 

- the most common complaint from everyone using these - "MY TOPPER AND WIG IS GOING BALD"

We have chosen NOT to stock these on our site, and although they have purposes that we will not discuss, the risk outweighs the benefit in our mind........ and longevity is what we want you to have. 

Sadly, the best made topper and wig on the planet will be obliterated by using this type of brush and you will see so much hair loss to your new hair. We do not want this for you and this is why you will not find these on our site. 

It is IMPERATIVE that you always follow manufacturer guidance. We advise that you never use any wire wig brush. It is however up to yourself what you do and do not do with your items....... but please note that if you use something that causes damage, this is absolutely NOT a manufacturing flaw...... but it is sadly just inappropriate handling of the product. 

The culprits you want to avoid are below:

I hope that has been helpful guys. 

 

It is not meant to be a total "YOU MUST DO THIS" but rather a little guide to help you, and to stop you making some of the mistakes that I have made in my own early wig journey. 

 

Have a lovely day, 

Big Hugs,

HAIR CARE

HUMAN HAIR CARE - FEATURING JON RENAU ARGAN CARE PRODUCTS

A wee semi educational / guide: how to wash and care for your human hair wigs
 
What we each use product wise is very much up to each of us. However, you should ALWAYS follow the wig manufacturers guidelines.
Jon Renau hair care products have been specifically formulated by some rather intelligent wee lab people to ensure that:
1. Hair remains well conditioned and lasts as long as practicably possible
2. Colour doesn’t fade
3. Your hair will always be a wise investment when cared for with these products.
A popular myth is that any shampoo and conditioner salon quality is effective on human hair wigs / toppers and pieces. THIS IS NOT THE CASE!
Although salon grade shampoos and conditioners are formulated for biological hair, they are created with the assumption that hair is attached to the follicle and being fed (Via Cortex / Medulla) with sebum and natural body oils..... which are requiring to be removed by the shampoo before being reconditioned.
HOWEVER With your wig, the hair is attached to a mesh base, and is not nourished - unless with appropriate wig human hair care products. 
You do not want to be stripping out oils from your helper hair that those with “bio hair” would want from their hair care products.
I guess when we break it down - it does make sense, doesn’t it?!
My personal - and professional - favourite hair care products are the JON RENAU Argan shampoo , Jon Renau Argan Conditioner , mist and Heat Treat THERMAL PROTECT spray  - as well as the new In Tone Violet Shampoo for you blonde girls (removes brassiness), and the Restorative Protein Builder - and dont forget the Argan mist to deep condition! 
Another important consideration is how frequently we wash our hair - AND our brush must be safe too!
A quick guide (although not set in stone).....
1. Wash every 6-8 wears
2. Deep condition every 3rd wash (lighter shades require a deep condition more frequently than darker shades due to a higher level of processing)
With this being said, HOW do we wash our hair? I decided to make a video which seems pretty long winded........ so I also thought - let’s create a quick little guide for you all, and a reference - so here it is x
I hope this helps you all - human hair is an investment, and although it can be time consuming to care properly for your hair - it is worth it as the lifetime will be much longer, and financially will save you - and those well earned pennies are best off in your own pocket x x x
 
If you want and need human hair rather than synthetic, but you have no time to cleanse and condition or do a deep treatment, MiMo Wigs is happy to provide this service for you.
