- Avoid washing the hair daily; to keep your hair clean does not mean you need to wash your hair every single day, you only need to wash your hair twice or thrice a week but not more often this will make your hair dry and it will end up making your hair break.
- Spray the hair with a leave in conditioner; it is not only natural hair that needs to keep moisturized but also your wig too.So before you wear the wig just spray it with a leave in conditioner Remy Soft blue Max Daily Refresher – Safe for Hair Extensions, Weaves and Wigs – Salon Formula Leave-in Conditioner, will work well to keep your wig in good shape.

- Do not sleep with the wig; there is no reason as to why you would sleep with the wig, you will be twisting the wig and this will make the wig lose its shape therefore make sure that you undress the wig before you go to sleep for your own good.

Try John Frieda Frizz-Ease Extra Strength Serum, 1.69 Ounces, it repels humidity to prevent hair from damage caused by weather.
- Try using the co-washing method; if you tend to feel like your hair becomes dirty and always have a great desire to wash your hair every single day. It is better to co-wash meaning you should wash the hair only with conditioner because it is less dangerous to your hair as compared to shampoo.
- Find out what your hair type is; the first step to having healthy hair is by knowing what your hair type is because this is the only way you can know what is best for your hair in terms of what products to use, how to wash the hair and which products you should use on your hair.
- Use lowest heat to style the hair; when you are in hurry you tend to use un safe methods to dry the hair because you do not have enough time for example you will use high heat because you want to dry your hair fast but this will make your hair a complete mess, it is only recommended that if you use any heat styling tool it should be at the lowest heat.
- Always use wig shampoo to wash the wig; you have no reason to use natural hair products like shampoo and conditioner when they are a variety of products made specifically for wigs. Try using DeMert Wig & Weave System Shampoo for Natural and Synthetic Hair 8 oz because it is great for wigs, it cleans and conditions your wig.
- Remove all tangles before washing the wig; use a wide tooth comb or a pick and gently remove all tangles in the wig then turn the wig inside out before applying a shampoo to it .This will help to reduce on the damage caused by shampoo on the wig fiber thus making your wig last much longer.
- Do not keep the wig on wig head; its better to hang the wig on a stand, the wig head or Styrofoam enlarges the cap of your wig hence making it lose its shape. The next time you wear the wig it will not fit you well. The solution is simple when you remove the wig just hang it on a wig stand.
- Use a mild shampoo to wash the wig; to keep your wig clean you should use a mild shampoo for washing. mild means one that is not too strong like Bumble and bumble Seaweed Shampoo 8 oz.

It has the beautiful fringe to make your face shape look longer.As your face shape will appear longer, the bangs are slightly flipped out to give you that flawless and modern look, I really love this one. Try out the hair style on your natural hair with the steps below;
- Detangle and organize the hair with a comb; gently comb through the hair to remove any tangles or knots from the hair, comb most of the hair forward into bangs and leave the rest of the hair smooth.
- Blow dry the hair with a round brush; you need the hair to have that beautiful bump so you need to blow dry with a round brush so that the hair does not lay flat because this is what will happen if you blow dry with your fingers.
- Take a smaller round brush to dry the rest of the hair; to remove all the remaining moisture and to make the ends bumped under your hair, you should take a smaller round brush and point the nozzle of your blow dryer down wards.
- Leave the top parts smooth and flat; the easy to this is by not starting with the blow dryer straight from the roots, this way your hair will remain flat like as it looks in the picture and more bumped in at the ends.
- Iron the hair for a more smooth look; after completely drying the hair, take a flat iron and smooth the hair more and as you iron, you should flip out the short strand of the hair to finish up.
- This is a beautiful wig made from the most beautiful and purest Remy human hair that is very soft to give you a realistic and natural appearance.
- It has a double monofilament part on the left side and the beauty about this is that it creates the illusion of your own natural hair coming from the scalp making it almost impossible for anyone to notice you are wearing a wig.
- The wig is not super short and not too long either, it flows down to just around the end of the neck to keep you really comfortable in all weather types.
- Use the right hair products; when you are going to wash your hair be careful with the shampoo and conditioner you apply to your hair. A good shampoo for your long bob hair can be Short Sexy Hair Double Duty 2 In 1 Shampoo and Conditioner by Sexy Hair, 33.8 Ounce it deeply cleanses hair and you can use it every day for those of you that are addicted to washing your hair daily. You will never go wrong with this shampoo.
- Leave your hair to air dry; medium length hair does not take too long to dry as compared to long hair so once in a while you can leave it to dry naturally. Save yourself the dangers of blow drying your hair or wringing your hair in a towel by leaving your hair to dry naturally.
- Do exercises for body work out; now you are wondering how exercising the body becomes of help to your hair, the answer is that when you’re working out the body produces heat that allows your hair to soak in moisture and conditioners that you apply to your hair.
- Do not apply conditioner to the scalp; the ends of your hair is where you should apply conditioner.This is simply because applying conditioner on the scalps reaps it of its natural oil making your scalp dry and if you have oily hair it becomes more oily instead thus making your hair feel dirty even when it is clean.
- Sprinkle the wig with water to calm hair; if the wig starts to become frizzy, pour water in spritz bottle and apply some little water to cool the frizz or add a leave in conditioner that is designed for wigs.
- Finger comb the wig; do not use combs to comb the wig, simply pass your fingers through the hair to make it look neat.
- Avoid using products with mineral oils on the wig; it is best to use a moisturizing spray on the hair or add a product that can sustain water in your wig for a long period of time so that the wig does not become too dry.

- Apply a small amount of styling product; Choose from the many of your styling products and apply just a reasonable amount of the styling product to your hair, make sure your hair is dump or wet before you apply the product, do not apply styling product to dry hair.
- Part hair to the sides; gently comb through your hair and comb to the sides, as you comb make sure you comb the hair towards the face as you can see in the picture above.
- Blow dry with a paddle brush; now grab your blow drier and blow dry the hair down wards pulling your hair to the front and to add some bit of volume and body.
- Flat iron to smooth; to make the hair a bit smoother, you iron the bangs with your flat iron. This will give the hair that sleek and amazing appearance.
- The wig is hand tied at the fringe so that it becomes hard for anyone to notice you are wearing a wig. It being hand tied makes the wig really natural looking.
- It has a monofilament top that creates the appearance of natural hair growth so you will not have to feel uncomfortable with the wig worrying that people will notice it is your natural hair.
- The side layers are well textured and made longer at the front while the back is way shorter compared to the front bangs.
- Always wash your hair with cold water; unlike warm water, cold water keeps your hair shiny, leaves moisture locked in your hair and helps to reduce on frizz.
- Be very careful when using heat tools; blow dryers and curling irons produce heat that is harmful to your hair so you should level their heat to lowest so that you reduce on the damage they may cause to your hair.
- Go for a good hair cut; go to a hair stylist and have your hair cut because it is very healthy for wavy or curly hair. This way your hair is free from all split ends and frizz. If you are not well experienced with cutting your own hair please do not cut your hair yourself, you will mess it up.
- Use more of non alcoholic and organic products; organic products are more of natural products as they contain ingredients that make your hair look perfect unlike products that contain mineral oils and alcoholic products that make your hair dry. Try Renpure Organics Amazing Miracle, 8-Ounce it contains silk protein that help to strengthen your hair .’It increases moisture retention in your hair and keeps your hair shiny.
- Let the wig air dry on a stand; it is better to leave the wig to air dry on stand than on Styrofoam because the Styrofoam may enlarge the wig cap making it lose its shape.
- Use a wide toothed comb to comb the wig; If you want to comb the wig use a wide tooth comb to remove all tangles from the wig. Be very gentle when combing the wig DIY Hairstyle Light Brown Wide Tooth Plastic Hand grip Straight Hair Care Comb 8.4″ removes all tangles from straight hair.It will be very good for your wig.
- Do not dry the wig on direct sunlight; always avoid drying the wig on direct sunlight as it affects the strands of your hair and in the long run your wig will start falling off. The rays of the sun light are too strong on wig fiber so this will make the wig weak and thus lose its shape.

HOW TO STYLE;
Rihana is such a trend setter when it comes to hair style and the most amazing thing about her is that she can go super short, long, medium without being afraid of the outcome, now take a look at her hair with the long bob and tell me if she did not come out absolutely amazing. A long bob is one of the very elegant hair styles for you, take on the run way to a party and even to office and still rock. If you are one of Rihana’s large crowd of fun you will definitely love her with the sleek and straight long bob. The hair style is brown in color so you don’t have to wind about it blending with your skin tone because it definitely will. For my ladies with an oval, round, long or long face shape you can try out the hair style for absolute gorgeousness. With these few simple steps you will be able to style your hair like Rihana in the above picture;
- Go for a good hair cut and wash your hair; go to your stylist for a good hair cut and after wash your hair with a gentle shampoo. Pour some shampoo on your hand and rub your hands together to make foam apply the shampoo to your hair and rub the scalp. Rinse it all out when you wash with conditioner.
- apply your favorite styling product to wet hair; with your hair wet apply a reasonable amount of styling product and comb through the hair to make the product infuse well into the hair. Be extremely gentle as you comb.
- Blow dry the hair with a hair brush; point the nozzle of the blow dryer down wards as you blow dry and use the brush to flip the hair at the ends like you see in the picture. Do not go to the next step until the hair is completely dry.
- Smooth with a flat iron; as you can see the style is really straight, you therefore need to straighten the hair more with your flat iron, this will not only make the hair straight but also smooth en it.
- Apply a light hold hair spray to finish; for the shiny look and glow that the hair has, you only need to apply a small amount of light hold spray to the hair and you will be good to go.
- It is a medium simple brown Rihaana celebrity hair style made from 100% Remy human hair that is fine and soft to make you feel really comfortable and to give you the most gorgeous look.
- It comes with a full lace cap construction that creates the illusion of natural hair at the hair line, this makes the wig look like your own natural hair from the scalp.
- It is straight with mid length and flipped in bangs to frame and flatter your face with the beautiful appearance like it did with Rihana in the above picture.
- Cut your hair ends often; every after three to four weeks take your hair to your stylist and have the ends trimmed so that you can have the hair free from split ends.You will not find any products that will prevent your hair from getting split ends because the cause of split ends is combing and since you cannot do away with combing ,it is better to take the hair to a stylist to have it trimmed.
- Use good quality heat tools; when it comes to straight hair you will find that you need to use a quality flat iron that does not heat up too much to damage your hair.It is from that wise note that you need to use a ceramic flat iron take for example the HSI professional 1 ceramic tourmaline ionic flat iron hair straightener. With this one you will straighten, flip or curl your hair and it comes with adjustable heat to avoid damaging your hair.
- Always condition the hair; for you to have moisturized hair the easiest way is by making conditioning your hair, part of your hair routine. I always use the Sexy Hair Straight Sexy Hair Leave-in Conditioner Spray, 5.1 Ounce because it is made specifically for straight hair, it protects your hair from heat styling damage and is humidity resistant. You will not go wrong with this one.
- Let the hair air dry; straight hair that is medium length like the one Rihana is wearing in that picture will not take long to dry so instead of blow drying, it is much better and safer if you leave your hair to dry naturally.
- Style the wig only once in a while; when it comes to human hair wigs it is okay to style but the problem comes in when you style the wig every now and then.If you keep treating your wig like this,the wig fiber becomes weak and in the long run the hair will start to fly away.
- Wash the wig only after wearing it several times; do not wash the wig daily because it makes your wig lose its shape. It is therefore highly recommended that you only wash the wig after wearing it several times for example only wash the wig after wearing it over 25times.
- Hang the wig on a wig stand; be extremely careful with how you store the wig when not in use, its best to hang the wig on a wig stand or mannequin to keep it in perfect shape and extend its life span.
- Always wash human hair wigs with human hair shampoo;Its not a matter of just washing with any shampoo to wash the wig, there is shampoo made specifically for human hair wigs take an example of DeMert Wig & Weave System Shampoo for Natural and Synthetic Hair 8 oz, it will keep your wig fiber really soft and smooth.
