Wigs & Units
Why a custom unit?
Do you want to grow and restore your natural hair? A sleek sew-in is always an option for a protective style, but it's not always the best. You may have noticed that when taking down your hair from this style your leave out has typically experienced no growth compared to your other hair and can even look much shorter and broken off. This is because your leave out is still being manipulated with heat tools which can cause breakage and heat damage.
Are custom units removable?
Our custom units are made to be glueless and are secured with an elastic band that keeps your wig flat and snug. I typically take my wig off every night. Once a month I'll get a cleansing shampoo, followed by a hydration mask and treatment (Maybe clipped ends), and a flat braid down with my scalp oiled and slip my wig back on.
How long does a custom unit last?
With proper care your unit can last for up to 2 years or more! We also provide a service called Wig Wash & Restore which can be booked HERE and will bring your wig back to life.
How long will it take to receive my custom unit?
The turnaround time for a custom unit is 5 - 7 business days. This does not include shipping. Which can take an additional 3 - 5 business days if pickup of the wig from me locally has not been arranged.
Do you create units using extensions from other hair companies?
As of now, yes. However, you are responsible for making sure that the hair you provide is top quality. Remember that the quality and how long your unit last is greatly dependent on the quality of extensions it's made with. For this reason we highly recommend the use of IAMSHEI Extensions to ensure your unit will be of the upmost quality and have longevity.
How do I care for my unit?
Since the units are easily removable, they are also very easy to maintain. Depending upon the styling products used you should wash your unit once every month. Make sure your using sulfate free shampoo/conditioner and also that you're completely rinsing the shampoo and conditioner from your hair. Also be sure to apply heat protectant spray before using any heat tools.
