Hi Leigh Ann, There is an amazing stylist named Ashlyn Davis.  919-929-0779.  She is in Chapel Hill!!!

Air neutralizing is skipping the last step in a perm.  After the rinsing and blotting, you leave the hair rolled up on the perm rods for several days until it is TOTALLY dry.  That allows air to "neutralize' the perm so you don't have to put the neutralizing solution on the hair.  This is one of the most damaging parts of a perm so by air neutralizing, you can keep the hair in better condition.  People with their own hair can't do this unless they intend to walk around for 5 days with perm rods in their hair, but we CAN (if we have a back-up to wear).

What is air neutralizing? I've not heard of that. Please.
Thanks

Hello, my daughter just received her Freedom Wig this past weekend. Next issue, finding someone willing to cut it. We live near Raleigh,NC, does anybody know of anyone reasonably close by? Right now we are planning an 8 hr drive to Atlanta, as that's the closest stylist we can find.

Hi Emily, Yes, but there are some things your stylist needs to know as Rosy mentioned.  We also recommend doing an air neutralizing which I can explain.  Call me at 603-835-6753 or have your stylist call me and I can explain.  We do it fairly often in our salon.

Hi Emily

I can help with that.  The simple answer is yes, but you need to make sure your stylist understands how to roll the hair in the curlers, otherwise you could have trouble with the curl, curling away from the cap leaving you feel quite exposed.  I'm sure Debbi will be able to help you with her hairdressser.

Hi Debbi --  Was going to email to you but thought I would post here so others could see.  Can a Freedom Wig be (gently) permed?  Mine is only nice and kinky the first day I wash it and gets straighter during the week.  Can I have my stylist give some of the top layers a gentle perm, or do you not recommend it?

Thanks!  Emily

Hi Reese

It really is lovely to know that your Freedom Wig is working for you.  I've read through a few of your comments and fully understood that you were having some issues with it.  I also felt that time and turning your Freedom Wig into you was going to help a lot...which it looks to have done.  

As your freedom wig is not growing you will already realise that you can very much dry this beautiful hair out and ruin it, if you are not careful.  Be thoughtful around this as you know the hair you received was precious and difficult to find.  

I wanted to also add, if you are using heat on your hair regularly (it will cause dryness), you can help this a little by using the proper protectants. Which I hope you are doing. :)

You look cute in your piccie.

Hi Reesespieces,  Make sure that you use your curling iron on a low setting.  Too much heat will damage your hair and you can't cut off "split ends" like you can on your own hair.  Use a good quality shampoo and conditioner every time you wash it (once a week or so).  Some leave-in's can build up but you can put a little Moroccan Oil on your hair when you first style it.  Sweat won't make your hair dry out, but the inside of the cap can suffer if you don't clean it out well after a lot of exercise.

I've now been wearing my Freedom for 2 months. Finally, I have adapted to it and I am falling inlove with it. I am very active with dance, yoga, running around. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a leave in conditioner or a repair conditioner so that it will last longer. I am afraid of drying out the hair due to sweat and a curling iron.

Thanks

Hi Zara,  the tiny bubbles are caused by sweat penetrating into the silicone.  They are not structural and you don't need to worry about them.  Try to remember to wash out the inside of your piece every night and if you happen to get extra hot or sweaty, you can bring alone some alcohol wipes to wipe off your head and the inside of the wig during the day.  If any of the bubbles grow larger and you can feel them inside the piece, take a sharp needle and slide it into the bubble from the side and squeeze out the water (sweat) from inside it.  They aren't anything that will cause you to lose hair.  If they stay tiny, just ignore them.
