#WisdomWednesday: Why Choose a VersaFiber® Wig?

Traditional synthetic wig fibers are very susceptible to heat damage. You definitely wouldn’t want to wear one close to a hot oven or a boiling pot. (We’d hate to think how many traditional synthetic wigs have frizzled while the wearers were preparing Thanksgiving dinner.) And you definitely wouldn’t let anyone with a curling iron near your synthetic wig!

But VersaFiber® synthetic wigs are different. These innovative, heat-resistant synthetic fibers have the flexibility and versatility to go from straight to curly or wavy and back again because they are heat-stylable! VersaFiber® reacts just like real hair, so you can use styling tools like curling irons, flat irons, and blow driers set below 350˚F to change up your look.

To give your heat-stylable VersaFiber® wig curls:

  • Place your VersaFiber® wig on a mannequin head or a Styrofoam® wig stand.
  • Section  the wig’s fibers into three sections: top, middle, and bottom. Use hair clips to keep the sections gathered and separated.
  • Starting at the bottom section and using a curling iron set no hotter than 350˚F, grip the fibers at the ends to secure then gently roll up toward the base. Hold the curl for 10 seconds then gently release into your free hand and use a hair clip to secure the curled section.
  • Repeat this process for the remainder of the bottom section, then the middle section, then the top section.
  • After allowing all the curls to cool and set for at least 10 minutes, remove all the hair clips and release the curls.
  • Use your fingers or a wide-tooth comb to create the desired look.
  • To add texture and definition to the curls, use wig gel.
  • A light mist of wig hairspray will set the style.

To give your heat-stylable VersaFiber® wig soft, beachy waves:

  • Place your VersaFiber® wig on a mannequin head or a Styrofoam® wig stand.
  • Section  the wig’s fibers into two halves: top and bottom. Use hair clips to keep the sections gathered and separated.
  • Using a flat iron set no hotter than 350˚F, grip the fibers 1″ from the wig base and twist. Keep the flat iron moving and gently draw the fibers  through to the ends.
  • Repeat this process but alternate the direction of the twists as you move around the wig. The face-framing sides should both twist away from the face.
  • Once you have completed both the top and bottom sections, use your fingers to shake out the waves and create a tousled, beachy look.
  • Finish and set the style with wig gel and spritz of wig hairspray.

Heat-resistant VersaFiber® wigs will retain their style—whether straight, curled, or wavy—even after washing, so you will need to apply heat, style, and let cool completely in order to change the look. And remember: Styling tools must not exceed 350˚F, otherwise they will damage your VersaFiber® wig.
