Wow what a great event it was onThursday night....Girls night in the Village. My sister and I were able to meet so many wonderful women at the event and we were told the most amazing stories of bravery and compassion. Women are truly amazing.
We were able to show women at the event different styles of wigs and how natural they look. We had women sign up to win a $100.00, $50.00and a $25.00 gift certificate. The four wigs that we brought to the event were all under $100.00. We wanted to show women that wigs can be apart of your accessories just like a necklace or a great pair of shoes. On those days that the humidity is high or the wind is strong and your hair just won’t you can wear your wig and feel assured that the wig will.
We listened to the most amazing speakers…we laughed, we cried, we cheered. It was a great event and I feel so blessed that we were able to be apart of it. For all of my cancer friends that I’ve met along the way my prayers are with you in your recovery!!
We were asked by many women if wigs are hard to take care of. The answer is no. A wig is much easier to manage than your natural hair. A synthetic wig or human hair blend is the easiest. They keep their style and just hang around until you’re ready to go. After you’ve worn your wig about 40 hours you will need to wash it. You can wash it more often if you’d like but I find that right around 40 hours of wear your wig will start to lose a little bit of life.
To take care of your wig is a pretty simple process. You will need a wig stand for drying and a good wig shampoo and conditioner. You simply fill your sink with cool water and add a capful of wig shampoo. Then you turn your wig inside out (for short wigs) and submerge the wig in the cool shampoo water and let it soak for about 10 min. Take the wig out of the shampoo water, rinse it and refill the sink with cool water. Add a capful of conditioner and submerge for another 10 min. Rinse your wig, blot it dry, turn it right side out and place it on the wig stand to dry. It is going to look like you ruined it…don’t fear!! Once it’s dried you will take the wig off the stand and for the short wig you will shake it. It will fall right back into place. You may need to take a pick and style it justa bit. For a longer wig you will want to run a pick or a looped brush through it and then you’re ready to go.
