How do I wear my wig for the first time?
Can I cut my wig?
Yes, however if you are considering cutting or thinning your wig, we highly recommend you take your wig to an experienced hairstylist who will advise you on styling and cutting.
Can I colour my wig?
Our wigs come in may different shades and we do not recommend colouring your wig with dyes or bleach. This may damage the fibre of the wig and ruin it.
How do I store my wig?
The best way to store your wig is on a wig stand. Not only does this help prevent your wig from becoming tangled or soiled between wearing, it also helps to maintain your wig's style and shape. Ideally, your wig should be stored in a clean, dry place, away from dust and sources of high heat or flame. If you do not have a wig stand always store your wig turned inside out and place it in an old shoe box or similar.
How do I wash my wig?
Ideally the best way to wash your wig is in luke warm water with a very mild baby shampoo or specially manufactured wig shampoo and conditioner.
Gently swish the wig in the solution of shampoo and water. Do not rub the wig harshly. Refill the basin and rinse your wig in conditioner and cold water. Finally rinse through with luke warm water and allow to dry naturally. Do not stretch the wig during washing or drying. Restyle the wig on your head with a soft brush.

The few exceptions being occassional highlights wher the colours are not available in heat friendly fibre. The new fibre enable you to use heat appliances [ curls / tong/ straighten/ blow dry ] up to 170 degrees to style your wig.
Where does your Human Hair come from?
MissTresses has a trusted source of human hair. We utilize Chinese, Mongolian and occassionally European hair in various forms and use the same sourced hair in our lace and human hair wigs. We do not buy cheap heavily processed human hair from unreliable or dubious sources.
Human Hair Vs Synthetic Fibre?
Some people don't like the thought of using human hair and with the current developments in fibre production the synthetic hair is of very high quality. Heat friendly fibre enable you to style wigs and hair pieces to your liking. Human hair wigs, pieces and extensions will last longer than synthetic fibre if carefully looked after but, for cost effectiveness, syntheic fibre is much more purse friendly.
Selection is a matter of personal choice and neccessity. We at MissTresses aim to provide high standards of manufacture across all our ranges.
