Hair styling techniques for hair additions:
Wigs / toupees styling, synthetic hair - must
only be washed in soapy water and left to dry
naturally, they cannot be styled, as the hair will
melt, pre-set style will bounce back when dry.
Natural hair - roller setting - pin the postiche
on a soft block, choose roller size for style,
dampen hair lightly, use neutralising lotion
if working on white hair, take clean sections
avoid pulling the knots, set in the required style,
secure the rollers without pulling the foundation
and causing distortion, cover with a net, if white
hair use tissue paper to prevent discolouration,
dry the postiche in a warm oven or hood dryer,
white hair naturally or cool oven, after drying
allow to cool, dressing out with great care to
avoid damage to the knots, a net is carefully
placed over the finished style and the wig is
returned to the oven to set the style; dressing
cream to control the hair. Hair additions placed
in style before the final dressing of the hair,
make a large pin curl with slightly backcombed
hair and slide the comb in which is attached to
the weft, if the weft has no combs use grips to
attach through the loops.
Blow drying - may be used, be careful of
disturbing the knots, dampen the hair lightly - if
working with white hair use a neutralising lotion
- blow-dry as normal (gently).
