Do you have to be totally bald to wear a full head wig?
Wigs are easier to wear if the wearer has no hair underneath. The wig will grip better to a bald head and its more comfortable when applying tape. AKI can be worn with some hair but MIKE is better fitted when there is none.
AKI comes in two different sizes; 56cm and 58cm. It is constructed with a monofilament top, wefted back and lace front temple to temple. It has tape tabs around the front perimeter and on the nape. The AKI can be reduced in size using the adjustable straps at the back of the cap.
Both wigs will need to be washed every 7-10 days if you wear them everyday.We recommend hand washing them in tepid water. AKI will need to be washed in the T-Range Fibre aftercare products. Once washed, leave the AKI to dry naturally on a polyhead - do not apply any heat. MIKE will need to be washed in the Pureology human hair products or equivalent and can either be dried naturally or with a hairdryer. Any finishing product like gel or wax can be used on both wigs to create your desired look/style.
Usually a full head wig will fit on the head securely. If you would like to use extra aids, we would recommend using double sided tape. The tape gets positioned on the PU tape tabs. Bonding (gluing) can be used as another alternative method but will reduce the lifespan of the wig by half and the foundation will become quite messy.
You can do sports in your wig. We would recommend that you attach the wig with tape for extra security if the sport is quite physcial and are in contact with other people. if you swim in your wig, either use an old one or make sure you wash it immediately afterwards.
AKI and MIKE are both stock items which means that they are able to order straight away. If we do not have your preferred colour in stock, we can look for an alternative or it can be placed on order where you will be given an estimated delivery time.
