How to Protect and Care for a Wig

0 comments

In some ways, caring for synthetic hair is a lot like caring for real hair. You should wash it with shampoo and conditioner and brush it to keep it looking shiny and pretty. However, you should avoid blow drying it and you should only straighten it if the package says that this can be done. With the right care, no one will be able to tell that your synthetic hair isn’t real.

When you need to comb a wig, be gentle. Do not use regular brushes, and if you can, only comb it. It doesn’t need combed every day, so let it rest.

While you’re sitting at home, take it off and put it on a wig stand. The stand will help keep its shape and taking it off your head takes away from your own tugging and pulling hairs out.

After washing a wig, do not shake it in a towel. Be careful and dry it piece-by-piece. This makes sure that strands of fibers don’t fall off. Also, never style your wig while it’s wet. Even those wet-to-style hair stylers are known to damage your wig.

After saturating your wig in water, squeeze it dry. Don’t wring it or the base of your wig could become mis-shaped and dry funny.

You can condition your hair every couple weeks or so, to keep it shiny and soft.Make sure you don’t do that every day and be sure to rinse it all out or it could lead to build-up in your wig.

When washing, you should always use shampoo that is very light and easy on your hair. Try Dove or baby shampoo. Wash with lukewarm to cold water.

Use a conditioner that is very oily, like a deep conditioning treatment

Do not blow dry, this will cause a lot of useless tangles that will ruin your extensions.

After dry, take a large bristle brush and brush out any knots in them. Then you can proceed to add any hair conditioner or leave in treatment and detangler.
