Wearing wigs is a big part of everyday life for many of our clients. This means that caring for wigs is also a big part of their routines. In this article we will go over 3 essential wig tips to keep in mind when caring for your wigs.
Human Hair Care
If you have a human hair wig, you can wash it with regular shampoos and conditioner, and in general treat it like your bio hair. However, since the hair is no longer receiving nutrients from the scalp, it is essential to be extremely gentle, and avoid over-combing. Avoid combing at all if it is wet. However, when your wig is dry, be sure to comb it gently on a regular basis to prevent matting, particularly at the back of the neck. Never use synthetic wig cleaner on a human hair wig!!
And gently comb the wig after every use to prevent matting and other damages.
Heat or No Heat
Heat friendly and heat defiant wigs are becoming increasingly more common, and with that, many lace front wig wearers are turning to heat to style their wigs. Be sure to keep in mind, however, that frequent styling with heat can be very damaging to wigs, in the same way that it is damaging to bio hair. Use heat on low settings, and only occasionally.
Storing Your Wigs
Not many people sleep in their wigs, and others still have large collections of wigs so that they can wear a different wig for every day of the week. This of course, means that proper storage techniques are a wig care essential! There are a few different ways you can store your wigs. When storing your wigs for long periods of time, be sure to keep them away from direct sunlight, dust, and heat.
