About our wig units
This information pertains to I Hair You wig units. All of our wigs are constructed on a sewing machine for long lasting units. The units come with an elastic band to help give you a glueless fit. You can apply the unit yourself no stylist needed, we even offer the option to send you your unit with the lace already cut (Free service). We have a detailed YouTube video on how to apply your unit and cut the lace.
My name is Nettie and I am co-owner of I Hair You LLC. I started selling wigs 11/2020 and I used to make wigs by hand but had no knowledge of creating a professional wig on a sewing machine. After learning how, I practiced and practiced to extend my knowledge in making beautiful units. I have since taken a layering course, highlighting course, & styling course and I can see the difference in where my units started to where they are now. As I continue to expand my skills, my goal is to deliver the best quality work to you making sure you are always satisfied.
About the lace
Wigs have come a long way and the lace pieces is the thing that changed the wig game. The top part of the wig will have a lace closure (we do not make frontal units at the moment), the lace piece is what gives the wig a more realistic natural appearance.
The lace closure will come with bleached knots, a part, and a plucked hairline. The lace on your wig will be transparent lace or HD lace.
We currently offer Top tier 5x5 HD lace closures. These closure are designed to give you a seamless look, it's made with thinner lace that is more see through.
These knots bleach to perfection giving a real scalp effect! Easily blend with lace tint or make-up to get that melted look.
About the wig
We offer ready to ship wigs (wigs we have on hand), and custom units (create the unit you want in your size). The wig is constructed with a sewing machine on a mesh dome cap or mesh ventilated cap. The caps are lightweight and breathable. Mesh ventilated caps are more ideal, they offer comfort and the caps are ventilated allowing your scalp to breathe. They also have mesh on the sides giving the cap the an even better fit.

Our units are made well, and the units are flat, never bulky. We use 100% virgin human or Raw hair to construct our units which aids in giving you a realistic look. The wig will always come to you washed and styled. Since the hair is good quality, your wig will last a couple years, with proper care even longer. Only the lace closure/frontal needs to be replaced over time (3-4 months) because it will eventually start to thin and bald over time. This is normal with the bleaching, plucking, combing and the more you wear it the sooner you will have to replace the lace piece. We also have a service to replace closures.
When your unit is the correct size, you can wear the wig glueless. Our units come with adjustable elastic bands to help your wig lay flat and snug. No need for sticky messy glue applications, at best if you want to adhere your unit, using a holding spray like got to be freeze spray will do the trick. We will soon add a holding spray to our product line as well as lace tint. These two used together will give you that realistic melt down without stepping foot inside a salon.
When the description says that it is a premade wig, this means that the wigs come from our trusted vendor. They construct the wig unit for us and then we customize it.
About choosing a wig
We suggest doing some research before purchasing a unit. Find out what’s best for you, like what do you like best frontals or closures, long hair, short hair, what type of hairstyles, etc. For beginners we always suggest starting with a closure unit. It is much easier to maintain. Many of our customers buy closure units because you can just put it on and go, come home, and take it off. Its beginner friendly and closures still look good and can be styled to give an appearance of a frontal.
Our Kylie unit (located in our Pre-order collection) is great for beginners, its a super cute everyday unit that can be customized to your liking. You can also create your own custom unit using our easy online option menus. you can pick your texture, length, parting, styling, etc. Also, we are constantly adding new styles, colors, and textures as we learn and grow so let us know what type of style you're looking.
Maintenance is very important if you want to keep the integrity of the hair. Buying wigs these days is not cheap and to get the most out of your investment we suggest keeping your wig clean. We offer a Wig Refresh service where we will wash, condition, give deep treatment, and restyle for you. If you are familiar with caring for your units, make sure you are washing and conditioning your units as needed. We have a blog on caring for your unit, go check it out if you want to take care of your wigs yourself.
