How to Give Volume to Synthetic Wigs

Postby cocohugyou » December 6th, 2016, 7:05 am

You can style your synthetic wig almost as easily as you would if you were working with real human hair. In fact, this material is easier to care for than a wig made from real human hair.

Things You'll Need
Texturizing cream for synthetic hair
Holding spray for synthetic hair
Curling iron for synthetic hair

Bring your wig to a stylist experienced in shaping wigs and ask for a cut that enhances volume. Your stylist will most likely add lots of layers and texturize your ends with a razor. A haircut can make a more noticeable difference in a wig than styling tricks and products, and the stylist will cut the wig while you wear it as if it were your natural hair, resulting in a custom cut that flatters your features while adding volume.

Define the layers that your wig came with or that the stylist cut by using texturizing products designed for synthetic hair. By separating your layers, you will add volume and movement to your style.

Use hair spray to increase your wig's volume. This product works by increasing the thickness of each strand of hair and allowing it to remain scrunched or teased, two styles that increase the volume of your hair. Apply a hairspray designed for synthetic wigs throughout and scrunch or backcomb to obtain a voluminous look.

Curl your hair using hot tools from a company that makes tools specifically designed to work safely with synthetic wigs. Divide your hair into small sections and wrap each piece around the hot iron of your curling tool. A head full of tight curls will add significant volume to your synthetic wig.
