Hair Donation Ottawa 2017


We are so excited to be a part of the 7th annual hair donation event at Algonquin College! Every year Hair Donation Ottawa helps the lives of children dealing with illness-related hair loss, by giving them a renewed sense of hope and belonging . Hair Donation Ottawa is a 100% not-for-profit organization that that supports Cancer Research in Ottawa, as well as providing wigs and head scarves to children dealing with hair loss.

 

This weekend come by Algonquin college if you are willing to donate 6+ inches of hair in support of Canadian Cancer research. When donating your hair, you will receive a cut, wash and style from Caralyn’s hair team to thank you for your amazing contribution to a great cause.

 

This is an amazing organization that helps the lives of children everywhere by providing hair treatment options for financially disabled families dealing with horrible illnesses. Create a GLOBAL impact this weekend, by registering as a hair donor and becoming a part of Canadian Cancer research!





Synthetic or Real Hair Wigs?


 

 

We are big wig lovers! Wigs can change and enhance your look as much as you want, as well as provide confidence and self-esteem to anyone who’s in need! At Caralyn’s, we provide both synthetic and real hair wings, as well as styling and maintenance recommendations. If you are having trouble deciding which type is best for you, we provided a list of pros and cons for each:

 

Synthetic Wigs

 

Pros:

1) Holds style. Whether it gets wet, or it’s humid outside, those curls or bounce will stay!

2) Relatively low cost, meaning more options to buy more then one!

3) Easy maintenance, synthetic wigs requires very little daily care.

 

Cons:

1) High shine, which can look slightly unnatural.

2) Cannot change style or colour, since the fibres do not react well to heat or dye.

3) They do not last as long as human wigs.

 

Real Hair Wig

 

Pros:

1) You can style with heated hair tools, allowing you to change up the style daily.

2) Very realistic looking!

3) Versatility in colour, since dying the wig is no problem.

4) Last much longer then any other type of wig.

 

Cons:

1) Cost, real hair wigs are much higher in price.

2) High maintenance. Like real hair, the hair has to be styled, washed and conditioned often.

3) Delicate. Again, like real hair, you have to be careful with heat resistant spray and not damage the ends. 

 

Wigs can change the lives of people for the better! Do your research before you invest in a wig, each will have different needs to suit each person and their personal schedule and abilities. For your wig needs, purchasing, styling and maintenance contact Caralyn’s, your hair experts!





Wig It Out

Embrace a New Year and a new do. Wigs have finally earned their turn in the spotlight as a highly coveted fashion trend, thanks to celebrities like Kylie Jenner (an avid wig and extension promoter), or Lady Gaga (The queen of trendsetting). Wigs have become the perfect way to have an ever-changing look that includes fabulous hair every time.

 

Wigs provide the variety to change your look for virtually any event or style you’re going for. Who wouldn’t want the option to have long wavy mermaid hair one day, and a sleek bob the next? Here are some tips for keeping your wig (synthetic and human-hair) in tip-top shape:

 

1) Detangle before washing.

 

2) Rinse with lukewarm water from roots to end.

 

3) Carefully shampoo with hands.

 

4) For synthetic wig, spray leave in conditioner from mid-shaft to ends. For human hair, condition ends and leave in for a few minutes.

 

5) Rinse with lukewarm water in the same direction as the hair to avoid tangles.

 

6) Air dry synthetic hair. Blow dry 80% of human hair wigs and round brush the rest.

 

So, if you feel like being a blonde Friday night, style that wig and go for it! For full service and care on synthetic and human hair wigs, visit Caralyn’s, your Ottawa hair design specialist!
