  • It is important to use shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for human or synthetic hair products.
  • Gently lather the hair with shampoo, while making sure that the hair is travelling in the same direction, DO NOT rub hair as this may cause tangling.
  • Rinse thoroughly in cool water until water runs clear.
  • For Human Hair wigs, apply conditioner avoiding the base cap of the wig or hair piece
  • With your fingers, work conditioner through the ends of the has for about 3-5 minutes
  • Rinse thoroughly in cold water until water runs clear
Dry
  • Wrap wig or hair piece in a towel and gently pat dry
  • DO NOT use a brush to detangle your human hair wig while it is wet, gently use a wide tooth comb
For Human Hair Fiber:
  • We recommend using a blow dryer (medium to medium-high heat) to style your human hair wig
  • Using a boar bristle/nylon round brush, work through hair in 2" sections starting at the nape working in a downward motion to ensure that hair stays smooth. Blow hair dry completely directing the hair in the shape you want to style
For Heat Defiant Fiber:
  • Spray with your choice of synthetic leave in conditioner
  • Air drying your wig or hair piece will give the best results. You can gently blow dry (low-medium heat) using only a wide tooth comb.
For Synthetic Fiber:
  • Allow wig or hair piece to dry naturally by placing on a plastic of wire wig stand. DO NOT blow dry.
  • Your wig or hair piece can be styled closer to the head for a fuller look
  • If fullness is desired, backcomb hair gently using your wig comb or brush then smooth the surface hair over
Style
For Human Hair Fiber:
  • It is recommended to use professional grade heat styling tools with digital temperature settings to control heat
  • Your styling tools should be set no higher than 350F to help maintain the integrity of the hair
  • Work in small sections (1-2 inch starting at the nape)
  • When curling your human hair, you can use small metal clips to hold each curl while cooling for a tighter, longer- lasting curl. For a looser, more natural looking curl, allow curls to hang while cooling.
For Heat Defiant Fiber:
  • It is recommended to use professional grade heat styling tools with digital temperature settings to control heat
  • We recommend only using a wide tooth comb and working at 270-280 degrees F.
  • Gently comb hair free of tangles with a wide tooth comb
  • Starting at the nape, take ½ inch to 1½ inch sections of hair (smaller sections = tighter curls, larger sections = looser curls)
  • It is recommended to use a styling spray to protect the fiber
  • Gather hair into curling iron, smooth through to the ends. Roll iron up towards base of wig, staying 1-2 inches away
  • Hold for 10-15 seconds then turn the tip of the iron toward the ground and release curl into palm of hand
  • Holding curl in one hand, gather up towards base and secure curl with a small metal clip (like a pin curl)
  • Allow curl to cool completely (about 5 minutes); remove clip and let curl hang naturally
  • Hair can be combed with your wide tooth comb or fingers to blend curls
For Synthetic Fiber:
  • DO NOT use heat to style synthetic fibers and be cautious when standing near a heat source (i.e. open oven, heater, etc.) as excessive heat can damage the fiber.
  • Simply use your fingertips of wig brush/comb for your desired style.
  • Mono Top wigs allow multi-directional parting in the monofilament area. If the fiber is being resistant when changing the parting, warm your hands by vigorously rubbing them together and place your palm flat on the new part, hold for 10-15 seconds. The warmth from your hands will help the fiber settle into the new parting and direction.
  • When cutting synthetic fiber, we recommend using a dense steel blade shear. We do not recommend using a razor for cutting synthetic fiber. This tool can shred the ends and lead to fraying and damage to the fiber.

Ehhh...

I've always bought straight wigs and I was curious to try a wavy wig, but many do not have bangs--and I need bangs to feel like myself. Having to cut bangs into wigs gets old.

Some of the promo pictures and videos looked promising, but some gave me pause. (It seemed the wig might be too rounded looking at top, which just isn't a nice look.) The video reviews seemed to confirm that fact, and also, the bangs were so insanely heavy/full. ...I've also noticed people online saying that the Alexander line lace part tends to be unnecessarily full, and saying that they had to pluck the heck out of the parting to make it look natural.

I really wasn't attracted to any of the color offerings, because it just works out that all the Aderans wigs I like have limited shade choices, and I don't want to own a bunch of wigs all in the same few colors! I decided on the iced mocha-r. I don't like blocks of highlighting, but I liked the main brown color, and figured I could thin out the streaks to soften the look of it... or color over the highlights, as one can do in a few ways.

Anyway. I get the wig, and yes, the bangs and the parting are ridiculous, and the wig does give a rounded appearance. I found that the cap around the lace parting doesn't lay right. In areas, it isn't even touching my head. Which means the profile of the wig is lumpy. I also feel the lace front is scratchy and unnecessary.

This is one of those wigs that doesn't have a long parting line, which means the crown starts a little too soon. I've noticed when a wig is constructed like that, sometimes it's too thin in back and can expose wefting. (Also, it looks a little less natural.) And that is the case with Alexandra. I wish they had spent all that extra hair given needlessly to the bangs and the parting area, and put it in the back instead. When I started working on it, I found a lot of the wefts have permatease and short strands of hair--I was surprised by the amount of it.

I spent hours carefully plucking out a more realistic parting, thinning out the blocky highlights, and drastically thinning the bangs. I had enough discarded hair that I think I could make another wig from it. All that spent time, and it still isn't ready. The bangs are still a bit too thick. I'm not even sure how to handle the lumpy parting area, because it makes the hair look bumped up in one area, and I think might be contributing to the rounded look of the wig. It will need some face framing cut into it so that it can be worn up and look natural. So yeah. A lot of work yet to go. And I'm not entirely sure I'll end up happy with it.

It's tangly, but not badly so, considering the length and the wave. The ear tabs rest near my ears. The cap is comfortable on my average (but leaning toward large) head.

I thought Alexandra might be a surprise hit for me, given for example, my experience with Angela (not so great promo pics, some mixed reviews online, but I freakin' love Angela). I mention Angela because they're both from the Alexander line. But honestly, I kinda wish I had just passed on this one.
