After finding a wig that suits your style and adds oomph to your look, it is critical to take adequate care of that precious and expensive wig. When it comes to preserving the wig’s intended style and maintaining its mica-like shine, it is important to keep the wig in good condition right from the start. Whether you are using a wig of synthetic hair or human hair, colored or natural black, straight or curly hair, here’s a list of wig care tips to help you to keep it looking lustrous for longer. 

1.    Know your wig well

You should handle your wig gently and know the type of wig you are using because maintaining a human hair wig is different from a synthetic one. As human hair wigs are stronger and more heat resistant than synthetic hair wigs. Also, colored hairs undergo a lot of different treatments and styling methods than their simpler counterparts. So whenever you purchase a wig, read out its instructions and understand its material. 

2.    Invest in good quality shampoo, conditioner, and comb

You should keep in mind that there are particular cleaning products available for your wig, as ordinary shampoo and conditioners include a lot of chemicals that can destroy the texture of the hair on your wig, especially if it is not human hair or natural black.

Washing your hair on your head is different from washing your wig hairs. Here is how to wash your wigs correctly: 

You can soak the wig for a few minutes in shampoo and water, then comb out the shampoo and conditioner (with a wig comb). After that, you should rinse the wig with warm water to eliminate any remaining residue. Finally, untangle the wig with a comb and leave it aside to dry. It doesn’t need to be rubbed or massaged; simply combing it will be enough.

3.     Dare not DIY wig styling

You should always style your wig by a professional stylist; many salons specialize in the care and styling of wigs. Remember that if you cut the hair on your wig, it will not grow back, and if you apply too much heat, it will not unmelt! 

4. Keep your wig safely in the closet

When you’re not wearing a wig, you should store it in a mannequin or on a stand of some sort so that it stays erect and doesn’t become tangled. Do not forget to keep it covered to avoid dust. You can also store your easy-to-use headband wigs in Styrofoam to keep them safe.

5. Do not use spray or oil in your wig

Your hair fiber in the wig is more likely to tangle or get oily and difficult to manage, if you do this, especially if you use a lot of different treatments, such as stay spray or a glossy spray. It’s fine to use some sprays and mists on natural hair. Just be careful not to overdo it.

6. Stay away from heat

When styling your wig, heat can be very damaging, especially if it is a synthetic wig. Any form of harmful heat, such as a barbeque, a preheated oven, steaming hot curling iron, or a high-intensity blow dryer, should be avoided.

7. Never sleep or shower with the wig ON

Never shower while wearing your wig, and remove it if it’s raining or storming excessively. On the other side, you don’t want the sleeping half to get tangled and knotted up from all the tossing and turning at night.

8. Maintain a pleasant odor

Keep your head hair clean and conditioned at all times! Wearing a wig does not excuse your hair from being unclean, unruly, or dry. Always braid or pull your hair back when putting on your wig. Wearing a cap is recommended because it makes it easy to cover your hair and keep it clean.

Finally, I hope this information was helpful, and remember keeping up the longevity and luster of your wig is in your hand. Handle your precious wig gently. Take proper care of your wig and it will always be ready to make you look more fantastic!

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.

    It’s great that you elaborated on the importance of taking care of the wig to make it look natural. My mother mentioned to me last night that she’s hoping to find a store that sells hairpieces for her ideal look, and she asked if I had any suggestions on what she should do. Thank you for this informative article, and I’ll be sure to tell her that she can consult a reputable hair replacement center for assistance in achieving her desired look.

    I am most captivated when you mentioned that it is important to store your wig in a mannequin or on a stand of some sort when you’re not using it so that it stays erect and doesn’t become tangled. My friend mentioned once that her wigs are old and unable to give the look that she wants from them. Her birthday is coming, and I know she would appreciate it if I could gift her custom-made lace wigs.
