Wig Care: 5 Essential Tips About Caring for a Human Hair Wig

by Brooklyn Hair 24 Sep 2019

Are you confused about human hair wig care? Maintaining the perfect style and feel of your wig requires you to give it special care.

Once you invest in a quality wig, you want assurance that it will last a long time. When given the right care, your human hair wigs will remain in excellent condition for a longer period.  

To keep your wig wearable, follow the easy wig care tips in this article.

Let's take a look at these 5 hassle-free steps.

1. Follow a Wig Care Regimen by Washing it Twice Per Month

If you wear your wig every day or for special occasions, you need to keep it clean. The best way to keep your human hair wig in excellent condition is to wash it at least twice per month. When you wash your wig regularly, it is much easier to style. 

  • Soak your wig in soapy water.
  • When you're washing your wig, be sure to use cool to lukewarm water. 
  • Instead of using a regular shampoo, use a mild, high-quality shampoo to wash your wig.
  • Try not to rub or scrub inside the cap. Using harsh strokes will damage the wig.
  • Be gentle when you're washing and combing through the hair one section at a time.
  • After shampooing and rinsing, place the wig on a towel.

To get the best results for your wig, make sure you use shampoo and conditioner that are suitable for the texture of the hair.

2. Condition Your Wig

Once you wash the wig, place small drops of conditioner in your palm and work it evenly through the hair. You will need to comb through the hair while it is still wet. This removes tangles when you wash out the conditioner from the wig.

3. Let It Dry

Avoid using a blow dryer to dry the hair. Hot air from the blow dryer can damage the hair fibers or it could also leave the hair with brittle and split ends. Experts recommend air drying for human hair wigs. 

4. Style Your Wig

You can style your wig with a curling iron or flat iron. Before you perform this task, make sure to put a low heat setting on your heat styling tools. Use styling tools that help you to retain the natural look of the wig. 

5. Protect the Wig When Not in Use

Try to avoid the mistake of sleeping or showering in your wig. You should store your wig in a safe place when you're not wearing it. 

Keep the wig away from direct sunlight and hot areas in your home.

Leave your wig in a cool room to prevent it from drying out. You can also place your hair in a wig box in your closet or on a mannequin head. 

Make your Wig Last Longer

Paying close attention to these simple techniques will help you to protect your wig investment.

Performing essential wig care techniques makes it easier for you to wear your wig with style and confidence.
