Synthetic wigs and hair pieces are known for being easier to style than human hair wigs as they retain their shape much easier, and, synthetic wigs that use the latest Kanekalon fibres can also be treated with heat styling tools such as hair straighteners and curling irons – but if you are uncomfortable using heat styling tools on your synthetic hair piece, don’t worry! There are lots of other ways to style your hair.

When you first invest in a synthetic hair wig, you will be shown hair that is in a variety of different natural styles, whether it is straight, curly or wavy. Upon choosing the style, you will be informed that the hair will retain this look after being washed and left to dry naturally – so you do have this to your advantage, as that requires minimal effort.

If you are looking to change the style of your synthetic hair wig, the first step you need to take is brushing it – whether this is before use or before washing it – however, be sure to use a specialised brush for wigs and hair pieces, as regular brushes with teeth that are too thin and close together can damage the attachments and strands.

To give your synthetic hair wig a straighter style without using a hair dryer or straighteners, brush it out more frequently while it is drying. It is advised to brush lightly through it every 3 minutes for the best finish.

For more volume, it is advised to give your hair piece a gentle shake while its drying too, as this will trap air in to the base and the attachments, which results in a temporary boost, giving your synthetic hair a much more lively appearance.

If your synthetic hair wig is naturally curly, a beautiful way to complete the look with more free flowing, loose waves is by separating the curls with your fingers while it is drying and once it has retained its former style.
