Hair Care Tips
Style your wig using your fingers, when possible, and if you do use a brush and comb, use only those designed for wigs. Use styling products sparingly, as the more hairspray or gel you use, the more often you’ll need to wash your wig (or have it cleaned).
If you want to change your wig’s look, consider working with a professional hairstylist.
Whether you’ve chosen a natural human hair wig or a synthetic wig, you’ll need to clean it regularly with specially designed shampoo and conditioner.
Wash your synthetic wig at least once a month and more frequently if you wear it every day.
How to wash a natural human hair wig:
The process of washing a natural human hair wig isn’t actually all that different from the process of washing naturally growing hair. It just doesn’t happen in the shower!
Prep:Use a wide-tooth comb to smooth the wig hair before washing. Take care not to pull or stretch the hair fibers.
Wet:Hold your wig with one hand and use the other to pour lukewarm water over the hair. The wig hair just needs to be wet, but not soaking wet.
Wash:Put a small amount of shampoo on the wig hair and work the shampoo through the hair. Then rinse the hair clean, being careful not to squeeze or wring the wig.
Condition:Apply a small amount of conditioner on the hair and work it through, letting it sit for a few minutes. Rinse the hair with lukewarm water until the water runs clear.
Dry:The simplest way to dry your wig is to place it on a wig stand and let it air dry, but you can use a blow dryer on natural human hair wigs. Just be sure to keep the heat setting low.
Once your natural human hair wig is dry, you can style it with a curling iron set on low.
