Hair Care for Textured Hair
Care Tips for #613 Hair
This hair requires more hydration
than #1b(natural black) hair due to processing.
To properly dye 613 hair: be sure to
apply a purple shampoo to remove any yellow tones. Do not apply purple shampoo
for too long to avoid over toning.
To properly apply the purple shampoo,
Run tap cold water onto the hair. Do not use any hot/warm water, because all the

Frequently Asked Questions
My hair is shedding when I wash it, is that normal?
Yes, that’s very common in wigs, especially curly and wavy textures. There may
be loose hairs from the tracks and those loose hairs will be removed from the
wig during the co-wash. As long as there aren’t clumps of hair being released
from the wig, your hair is fine.
Can I use hot tools on my hair?
Yes, you can use hot tools for hair. We recommend using high temperatures with
caution and highly recommend applying a heat protectant before styling. When
using hot tools, we suggest temperatures under 350F degrees for colored hair,
and under 400F degrees for natural colored hair to avoid dryness. Do not leave
any hot tools on the hair for no more than 30 seconds. Once done styling your
hair, clean your hot tools, because on the hot tools might have few loose hair
since you pulling down or curl the hair on the tool, so there might few loose
hair but it's normal. As well as you clean up the hair on the hot tool, then
Why is it important to wash my hair before wearing it?
Wigs are made with human hair and sew them on the weft and lace to become a wig,
during these manufacturing process, there are 100% would have few loose hair
still left inside the wig, so co-washing removes all the loose hair then could
avoid the loose hair tangling in the wig. It also helps to moisturize and
hydrate your hair when preparing to style.
How many times should I wash my wig/bundles?
Washing varies by how often you wear your wig. On average we recommend washing
your hair twice every week, if used on a daily basis, to maintain it hydrated
and remove any bacteria from the lace. For special occasions, like days at the
beach or on vacation in humid areas, wash your hair at night and allow it to air
dry overnight. Don’t forget to condition the wig after wash, and really
important that wash it clear after all the steps.
What do I do with my wig when I’m not wearing it?
If you’re taking off your unit for a short period of time (to sleep, shower,
etc.) you can place it on a mannequin head or a wig standard. If you’re looking
to store your wig for a longer period of time then place your hair in a satin
bag and place it in a cool, dry area.
Can I sleep with my hair?
It’s not recommended because it might would cause tangling if not taken care of
properly. If your hair is sewn in, wear a satin bonnet. This will help prevent
Which volume I can use when coloring the hair?
Our 9A grade hair can be colored with up to 20V. Advise to test a strand hair
prior to coloring the full set.
My wig has a crunchy feeling and looks dry and brittle. Why is
This usually happens when high heat has been applied to the hair continuously,
or hair hasn't been conditioned for a certain period. To avoid this use hot
tools only when necessary with proper temperature, please see the above daily
maintenance section. Another option is to use a hair masque or deep conditioner
to help keep your hair moisturized.
Why is my hair shedding and tangling? How do I detangle it?
Asteria has worked in the human hair industry for over 10 years,
researching the best method of giving the best quality hair. Shedding
is natural for human hair. Hair on the human head sheds 50-100 hairs
daily. Hair sewn on the lace and the wefts have a similar effect. If you
see a small amount of hairs loosening from your wigs/wefts do not be
alarmed, this is very common in all hair extension products.
Professional hairstylists place a small amount of clear glue on the tracks of
the wefts to keep hairs from loosening and minimize the shedding before use the
wig or bundles.
One of the reasons for excess shedding is tangling. Depending on the excess of
tangles on the hair, the shedding can be more or less. To avoid these tangles,
brush your hair on a daily basis. (See our daily maintenance section on section
1.) Detangle your hair before styling. Not detangling your hair can actually
cause the hair to shed more than expected.
Another important step to detangling is using the right detangling method
depending on the texture of the hair. Curly textures (deep wave, water wave,
deep curly, and kinky curly,etc) require more care than straight or body wave
textures. Use your fingers to comb sections of the hair with a light conditioner
or Moroccan oil to detangle. Using fine combs aren’t recommended for detangling
on the curly textures. See our daily maintenance section to see which brush is
appropriate for daily hair care depending on your texture.
Lack of hydration can also cause shedding. Shampoo and condition your hair
appropriately, as mentioned in the instructions previously, to maintain it
moisturized. Don’t forget to use deep conditioners and hair masks on a weekly
basis, these products can give a little extra moisture to your hair.
I bleached my curly hair and it lost its curl pattern. Why is
Bleach has chemicals that can loosen a texture. To keep the original texture as
best possible, do a bleach bath. If doing highlights avoid brushing the hair
with a lot of pressure and hot or warm water. Pushing down on the hair with
bleach can cause the texture to loosen more than needed.
layer your wig/bundles on the flat surface to air dry, but remember place it to
the another side to make sure both side dry totally.
Allow curly hair to air dry by hanging the unit by the nape area on a skirt
Why are holes appearing on the lace when I pluck it?
This may be caused by forceful plucking or handling. If your lace is HD, which
is a thinner lace than regular lace, take your time and slowly and gently in
plucking the hair. For regular lace, gentleness is still recommended. This can
also happen if you’re trying to pluck more than one hair quickly.
