How to maintain your wig

May 28, 2019 2 -

Discover all our tips for maintaining your natural wig  or your  synthetic wig.

 

Brush your wig regularly

Brush your wig every night with a wire brush with large bristles, starting at the tips and working your way up to the roots. If you come across knots, gently untangle them with your fingers or apply detangling wig care.

Tip:  Put your wig on a wig hanger  when you're not wearing it. This will allow it to keep its shape and facilitate brushing.

 

Don't forget to wash it

A wig is washed about every ten to fifteen uses. To do this, dilute a dab of wig shampoo (or mild shampoo if you don't have one) in a bowl of warm water. Dip your wig in water and let it act for ten minutes without rubbing (this could damage it). Rinse with cold water and gently wipe it off, dabbing with a terry towel. You can also apply a nourishing conditioner or balm (choose products specially designed for wigs and suitable for synthetic or natural fibers). Finally, allow your wig to air dry. Do not use a hair dryer, especially if your wig is made of synthetic fibers (these may melt). Shake it a little to give it back its shape and place it on a wig stand.

 

Adopt the right gestures

As a wig is more fragile than your natural hair, it is important to protect it well. So avoid bathing with it, store it in your closet or in its box when you are not wearing it and have a light hand on styling products. If your wig is made of synthetic fibers also pay attention to heat sources (oven, steam, barbecue etc.) which can cause irreparable damage.
