Judy Wigs offers tips and guides about how to care for your wig to keep it looking fresh and beautiful. Wearing your wig in wet or damp conditions may cause frizziness, although you can restore the wig’s beauty by washing the wig and nourishing with quality hair care products. If you get caught in the rain, leave the wig and let it dry in its shape. Once the wig is dry, you can simply brush through a straight wig with a wig brush or a curly wig with your fingers. If there’s a lot of residue (spray or dust) and the wig is sticky, it’s best to take the wig to your local wig style professional.
How many days could you comfortably go without washing your hair before you would feel the overwhelming need to scrub your scalp and remove the smells, chemicals, and environmental elements? How long could you go without combing or brushing your hair before it tangles, knots, or overall appearance would begin to bother you or weigh on your self-esteem?
If you are like most people, the answer is, “about two days…maximum”. Why is it then, that most women who are wearing wigs and quality hair pieces seem to think they can wash their wigs, weaves, and toupees once a month or every other month? Could you wear your natural hair for a month without washing it? Of course not!
You also need to consider the color of the hair in your wig as some colors will tend to oxidize and require a toner treatment to revive the natural highlights and restore the health and vitality of your wig.
You should also consider the environment you live in and the weather when you think about how often your hair- wig needs to be washed; If you wear your hair a few hours a day or for an entire work day and commute, you are exposed to more of the elements, pollution, and airborne aromas. All of these factors impact how often you should wash your hair.
As a general rule, a wig that is worn daily should be washed as soon as you notice it is not styling easily, looks flat or has lost its luster.
It is always best when considering a wash, dry and set, that you speak to your hair care professional (and let them take good care of your hair) to know how to best care for your hair. Every wig is special in its own way and may require a little more effort for some colors and styles. Whatever you decide to do, remember, “your hair is your finest accessory” and you want to wear it well. Keep it clean. When you are not wearing it, place it properly on a head form to keep it in the right shape and prevent any folds or tangles. See your hair care professional regularly to maintain your wig and keep it lasting as long as possible.

If you have been thinking you need a major change; whether it’s your wardrobe, relocation, or finding a new job, there may be an easier, softer way to achieve an instant change that may set your life back on track.
The time has never been better for a hairstyle change that will take you from 80’s ‘leftover’ or the one-length ‘plain Jane’ to fresh and fantastic in a flash. Whether you go from long to short, short to spiky, long to layered, or layered to bobbed…the change is going to accentuate you’re your life, redirect your energy, and make you feel great about yourself again.
Not ready to take the plunge and ‘cut’ away at the little things that bother you? How about a new color? Red is always in and highlights or lowlights are all the fashion from runway to getaway. Take an old wig and make it new again with a great color treatment. Gail L. from Long Beach wanted to have red hair like the rest of her family and after a blonde wig oxidized; she brought it back to new life with a rich color treatment and deep conditioning.
Change does not have to be costly and it doesn’t have to be permanent. Try something different, come in and try on a style you never would have picked before. You may be completely surprised at how good a new look can make you feel. It is the right season, and change is definitely in the air.
Summer is in the air and our thoughts turn to spending more time out in the summer sun and fresh air. Picking the right wig makes a big impact in the way you feel. The fabulous new hair makes it possible to turn thoughts to enjoying the summer weather. The best wig to make it the best summer possible is one that is high quality, light, airy, and easy to wear.
This is not a call to vanity, or to any shallow approach to interactions, but it is a call to making that all-important first impression. This is especially important in matters of business, where first impressions can make or break many deals. The clothes we wear, the way we walk and talk, and of course, they way we wear our hair come quickly into play.
So how is that wig working out for you? Do you hold your head up high and strut with confidence? Or are too many days bad hair days? If your wig is simply not working out the way you would like, maybe it would be a good idea to quit fighting it and get a Judy wig.

For the first time in 40 years, Philip Greenlee cannot get the choice feathers he ties into fishing lures to tempt trout from the blue-ribbon streams in the western United States. A new nationwide trend of attaching feathers to hair, known as feather extensions, has spurred a run on the decorative plumage of designer roosters produced at just three farms in thecountry.
Until this year, the long, skinny and spine-free feathers were the almost exclusive province of fly-fishing devotees. Now the multibillion-dollar beauty industry is hawking feather extensions, triggering a shopping frenzy that has pitted fishers against fashionistas.
Hair stylists are snapping up feathers at a rate that has exhausted stocks at fly fishing shops at the peak of trout fishing season from the Rockies to the Appalachians. In the laid-back and historically genteel culture of fly fishing, throngs of feather-seeking, cash-flashing hairdressers are causing consternation.
“We’ve got these blond gals attaching feathers to their hair, we’ve got people from California and Colorado calling us; it’s like we’re sitting on a pot of gold,” Duane Schreiner, owner of Bighorn Fly and Tackle in Montana, told Reuters.
Since January, demand for the specialty feathers – a fad fanned by the stars of TV series such as “American Idol” and “Glee” sporting the extensions – has left anglers high and dry even as it has boosted profits for farmers who raise the fowl. BAFFLED CHICKEN FARMERS Prices for some packages of the distinctive feathers, known as hackles, have soared from $60 to $400 as supplies have dwindled for a product that takes roosters one year to grow.
A hackle of black and white stripes, or grizzly, is most sought after by both the beauty and sporting goods industries. Salon operators say clients prefer the striking pattern, which is also prized by anglers for its buoyancy and resemblance to insect wings.
Greenlee, president of the Federation of Fly Fishers, an international nonprofit in the state of Montana, said the craze threatens the time-honoured tradition of crafting lures, or fly tying. The lures, or flies, rely on feathers perfected over decades of selective breeding, imitating mayflies and other aquatic insects favoured by cold water fish.
Feather extensions, which can hold up for weeks amid routine washing and styling, range from $8 to $15 per feather. Hana Johnson, president of Hair Flairs, a Florida company that distributes feathers and other beauty products to salons in the United States and Canada, said she has sold a million feathers so far this year. That compares to 3,000 in 2010. “We’ve been spinning our little feather wheels like hamsters since day one,” she said.
Hair Flairs has already bought the bulk of feathers that will be produced in 2012 by Bill Keough at Keough Hackles in southwest Michigan.
Keough said he is as surprised as anyone to find himself at the head of a hairstyling movement. “I’m not a trendsetter, I’m not a hair fashion designer, I’m a chicken farmer,” said Keough, who raises about 25,000 roosters with the desired hackles. Keough welcomes the growth of the one-time niche market but is stung by the criticism of animal activists, who dislike the practice of euthanizing birds to harvest their feathers. Keough said the roosters must be pampered to produce champion plumage, which is why they are fed by hand and some flocks range freely. “I’ve spent 37 years of my life taking care of them; they are my pride and joy,” he said.
