given the increased cost of styling my sheitel
I'm thinking of doing this myself
[I cover my sheitel so it's a bit different than for those who wear full-length sheitels and don't cover]

which rollers?
which mousse?

thanks

Synthetic sheitels are very low maintenance. You buy them in a preset style and you wash them yourself and it will just set back into the style. There is no styling.
They don't last as long as real hair does-be prepared for them to last 6 months - year of daily wear before they start looking like mop heads.
But they are a much cheaper option. I love how you don't need to worry about getting caught in the rain as they won't go frizzy, and that they are just cheaper in price.

Of synthetic? I didn't know you could. I thought it was whatever style it was, that's the style it will stay. I mean you can pin it back etc, but I didn't think you could use hot styling tools like curling tongs on them. Heat will kill it.

I was taught that you can use hot rollers on a synthetic wig (on a warm not hot setting)
This was years ago and I'm not sure where to find them since I don't live in a community that wears synthetic.

I was trained by a professional sheital macher with years of experience dealing with synthetic and natural wigs. I just don't practice that part since no one brings me synthetic wigs.

I found these on Amazon

Yes but choose one with an adjustable heat setting so you can use the lowest heat.

If you want to do it properly, it may be worth it to take a course on this. There are sheitelmachers in bp and kj that do 3 hour classes to teach just what you're looking for. I know some sm even give private session to teach this

Noriko doesnt need more than velcro rollers. Roll it in when its wet and remove it once its dry. If it has frizz you can blow it carefully with warm air.
