Synthetic Wig Care

pexels-photo-1586999Wigs that are worn daily should be washed every 2-3 weeks. During warm weather you may want to wash weekly if you are sweating a lot or have two of similar style to switch out during the hot months. Washing  your wig is important to keep hair looking fresh and realistic looking.

Remember synthetic hair is not the same as human hair no matter how much they may look the same. only use hair products that are designed for synthetic hair. Do not use human hair shampoo or conditioner on your wig. This will cause build up on the wig, and dull  the hair fibers.

 

Washing Care

De-Tangle

Start out by  carefully detangling your wig hair using a wide tooth comb.

Brush through and gently remove any tangles using a wide tooth comb or brush.

Be careful not to pull or drag the hair fibres as this can cause damage to the wig.

Wash

Fill a bowl with cold  water (never hot, heat will damages the synthetic fibres).

Add a capful of shampoo into the water.

Immerse hair into water and let  soak for few minutes.

Rinse

In  a fresh bowl of cold water to remove shampoo from hair.

Do not squeeze or wring wig out this will also damage hair.

Condition

Apply conditioner directly to your wig, stroke hair in a downwards  motion from the

roots to ends.

Leave in 4–5 minutes.

Next rinse by immersing wig into more in fresh cold water.

Dry

Place the wig between a folded towel and pat dry.

Again do not  squeeze, or wring your wig while drying.

Style and hair dry

Remove from towel and gently shake out wig to regain its style. Place wig on a wig stand to dry naturally. Do not use hair dryers the heat  can cause damages synthetic fibres even if it is a heat safe wig, do not use heat while hair is drying.

Summer Hair Color

The warm weather is on its way soon and for those of us who love our wig accessories it’s time to prep your hair care routine. During the warm months wigs can become hot. I  have a few recommendations that might keep you cooler this year.

Wear half wigs. I tried a few half wigs recently that were about the same color as my natural hair texture and color. A half wig is not really half its more like 2/3rds a wig. The front is left where your natural hair can be out. This drastically cuts down on heat as more heat can escape from the uncovered portion of your head.

Shorter hair. Try going shorter for the summer.

Braid your long wig. If you want a long style try braiding your wig into a ponytail, or try an up-do style.

Extra washing. Remember to wash your wigs more often in warm weather. You are sweating probably more than you realize. Keep your wig and your own hair properly washed and dried.

Here are a few styles you may enjoy for spring and summer. You can click the image or link below it to be taken to the product.
