It is important to properly care for your human hair wig in order to achieve maximum lifespan and the best appearance. Maintaining and washing your human hair wig is not difficult; it just requires attention and gentle care. Most human hair wigs are made with hair that has been dyed and chemically processed in order to remove the cuticle. Human hair wigs must be handled gently as these processed make the hair more fragile.
What you will need: Wig brush, human hair shampoo and conditioner, towel, wig sand and a hairdryer
To keep your human hair wig looking beautiful for longer you'll want to make sure you follow these easy steps.
Gently brush the wig to remove the tangles. Start at the tips then work towards the roots to prevent the knots compacting. TIP: start at the ends and work towards the roots to decrease shedding.
Mix human hair shampoo to cool water. Place the wig in the basin and gently stroke the water through the hair in a downward motion. Don't scrub the hair as this will cause knotting and damage. Leave to soak for 5-6 minutes. TIP: never rub, twist or wring your human hair wig.
Rinse with fresh water. Gently stroking the hair in a downward motion. Don't rub, scrub or wring. TIP: let the water flow in the same direction of the hair to avoid tangling.
Gently apply human hair conditioner through the wig and leave for 5-10 minutes. TIP: never rub, twist or wring your wig.
Rinse with fresh cool water. Gently stroking the hair in a downward motion. Don't rub, scrub or wring.
Squeeze the excess water out before patting with a clean towel. Don't twist or wring your human hair wig.
Gently shake your wig before placing on a stand to naturally dry. TIP: never twist or wring your human hair wig.
When your wig is 75% dry use a blow dryer on low heat to perfectly style the hair.
Store your wig on a wig stand or form that is smaller than the base of the cap to prevent the cap from stretching. Direct sunlight will fade the hair so avoid storing your wig where it will be exposed to light. Do not wear your hairpiece while sleeping. It may result in hair loss, breakage and matting. Lighter hair colours are more delicate than darker colours because additional processing is needed to achieve the light colours.
Over time, your wig will lose hair. This is a natural part of the life cycle of your wig.
Avoid contact with chlorinated water, sea water and hot water to avoid damage to your wig.
