QUESTIONS ABOUT WIG CARE
Q: Can the units or wigs be straightened or curled for styling?
A: Treat the hair as if it is your own. Use a flat iron/straightener, but as with your own hair, never use hot tools too often as you could dry the hair and it will not last as long. It is not recommended to straighten curly hair textures, as the are processed and may not return completely to its original processed texture.
Q: Can I color the hair?
A: Yes. The hair can be colored. All units come in its natural color (#613 excluded). #613 can be colored darker colors (deposit only) Improper coloring will ruin the hair.
We highly recommend having a professional color the extensions as you will get the results you want, coloring them yourself always poses a high risk of not coming out the shade you want. If you can’t get to a salon, always use a good quality hair color and test a small sample first.
Q: Can I shampoo & blow-dry the hair extensions?
A: Yes you can shampoo them as you would your own. Shampoo and conditioner. We also recommend using a hair treatment on them every few weeks, because the hair is not attached to your scalp,it is not getting the oils it should be. Using a treatment/hair mask will need to shampoo your extensions too much, about every 3 weeks. The extensions can be blow-dryed on low setting, but it is not recommended to do it too often. It is best to let your hair extensions dry naturally after shampooing them. (recommended)
Q: Why are my hair extensions getting tangled
A: Your Hair Extensions can tangle due to dryness, oil & dirt build-up, salt water, chlorine and not combing (wide tooth comb) out your hair daily.
Make sure to shampoo & condition your hair at least once a week, twice a week is better. Use hydrating drops or consult your stylist for more help.
Q: How long will my unit/wig last?
A: This hair can last for a very long time depending on how you maintain it. Treat it like your own hair and take very good care of it for it to last longer. MSBM prefers Indian hair because it is beautiful and unprocessed which makes it last longer than any other kind of hair.
Q: How to confirm the wig density?
A: The wig density is closely related to the weight. For different density, the weight is also different (see chart). When you receive the wig and doubt the density meets your order request, please weigh the hair and send us a picture to confirm.
Q: How to Shampoo Wig?
A: Fill sink with warm water (enough to cover wig) Place wig in water holding it gently at the top, allowing the hair to go in its natural direction
Slide your hand over the hair repeatedly until it is clean
Rinse shampoo thoroughly and apply conditioner through the hair. Keeping hair in its straigtest form.
Leave the conditioner in for a few minutes before rinsing
Rinse conditioner thoroughly and use a towel to remove excess water.
**curly textures (for best results): while hair is soakedapply desired cream moisturizing product cocktailed with a frizz control serum
Place the wig on onto a wig stand/head and let it air dry (for best results)
Q: How to Comb?
A: Divide the hair into four parts. Comb 1/4 of the hair from bottom up
Join together 1/2 of all hair. Comb gently from middle to bottom. Take 3/4 of all hair smoothly.
Comb from top to bottom

frequently asked questions about maintaining natural hair.
Q: To go natural will I have to cut off all of my relaxed hair?
A: To be 100% natural, yes. However, this does not mean you can not start the process while maintaining your length and a healthy hair shaft. With the proper conditioner and regular maintenance, this can be a smooth transition. 90% of my clients are natural and out of that 90, 30% are in “transition” meaning the individual hasn’t had a relaxer in several months, even years and their hair; mid-shaft to ends still is relaxed. Receiving monthly trims and protein treatments will allow your hair to stay strong and healthy as the natural hair grows in and the relax hair is gradually removed. This process usually takes around 2 years, depending on the length of the hair at the time the process began.
Q: How long will my press last?
A: A hard press should hold up for 2 weeks on the average. With proper conditioning, training and wrapping your head nightly will help maintain the moisture and smoothness of the press. Remember: the training start at the bow with the proper conditioning….that’s the key.
Q: How do I maintain my press at home?
A: Moe’s! Maintenance Kit for Oil-Free Press; a oil-free (clean) ceramic paddle brush, wide tooth styling comb, two prong clips (to use to hold longer hair when wrapping), pin curls (use to add body and curl), a very light shine serum (I recommend Elucence Elixer Serious Shine), 2 silk or satin head scarves (make sure you wash them weekly to remove all excess oil), electric pressing comb and a quality ceramic or titanium flat iron (400° or higher).
To maintain your oil-free press you must include the following steps to your nightly routine and that is wrapping your hair. To wrap your hair you must first start by brushing the hair, with your paddle brush around the circumference of our head. Make sure you do not create beehive but keep the hair flat and form it to the shape of your head. If your hair is long, clips the hair in various sections around your head to hold it in place. Cover your hair with a clean scarf making sure to cover your ears which helps to hold the scarf in place during the night. Wrapping your hair allows the hair to take the natural shape of the head giving it a beveled look once combed down. Note: Use only silk or satin scarves to wrap your head, mesh wraps tend to slide off during the night and rub out the hairline.
Before you comb your hair down, use your electric pressing comb to smooth out the edges of your hairline when needed (women you workout or who tend to sweat will have to do this process more often the others). When combing down your wrap using a wide tooth styling comb, remember to pay close attention to the nape of the neck which is usually overlooked.
As you continue your routine of wrapping your hair nightly, following up on your professional salon visit and monthly protein treatments you will begin to notice a change in the texture of your hair as it becomes softer and more manageable. And your nightly routine will become second nature as if your hair is wrapping itself.
Q: How often do I need to have my hair done?
A: I recommend that you visit your salon every two weeks to remove the dirt and debris that will build upon your hair shaft. For the women who are coming out of braids, weaves and wigs I suggest your visit are weekly for the first month to help retrain the hair.
Q: What are some other styling obtains do I have for natural hair.
A: Sets are always in season. By using rings, flexi rods or similar products to set your hair will give you a lot of versatility and create smoother and softer textured hair with lots of body. Also, sets allow naturally curly hair to be smoother and/or looser
