How to maintain my human hair wig?

How to maintain my human hair wig?

Maintaining your human hair wig correctly ensures the longevity of your hair piece.

Here are some tips and trick with your everyday wear and use, as well as what to expect when washing and conditioning your human hair wig after 6-10 wears.

1. Washing Your Wig

• Avoid scrubbing the hair. Instead, use warm or cold water and gently stroke your fingers through the hair to rinse out styling products, dirt, and sweat buildup.

• Wet the wig gently with warm water. Cold water is recommended if your color is pastel, as pastel dyes are more prone to fading.

• Take a small amount of mild, moisturizing shampoo suitable for dry or damaged hair and massage it into the hair, focusing on the roots and areas with buildup. You won't need shampoo with oil control, or deep cleanse properties because un like your bio hair, a wig does not get natural oil from your scalp. Over cleaning can lead to color fading, dry hair, and shortening of the lifespan of the product.

• Rinse out the shampoo using the same gentle stroking motion until all the shampoo is washed out. Repeat this step if necessary, but avoid rubbing or wringing the hair to prevent tangling and damage.

2. Choosing the Right Shampoo

Cleansing shampoos and shampoos with oil control properties: Avoid using these products as they can dry out the wig quickly and cause fizziness and dryness.

• Avoid using volumizing shampoos, as they can make the hair look puffy and unrealistic.

• Opt for moisturizing shampoos that do not add excessive volume.

• Use a mild shampoo that's sulfate-free and pH-balanced shampoos to maintain the health of the wig.

3. Conditioning Your Wig and Detangling

Apply a generous amount of conditioner made specifically for wigs to the mid-lengths and ends of the hair.

• Leave the conditioner on for a few minutes to deeply moisturize the hair.

• Now, while the hair is slippery with conditioner, if needed, gently detangle any knots or tangles using a wide-tooth comb.

• Start from the ends and work your way up, being careful not to pull too hard or cause damage to the hair.

• Rinse with cold water

• Rinse out the conditioner using cold water to help seal the cuticles and reduce frizz.

4. Heat Styling

• While heat styling tools are 100% safe to use, if you regularly use heat styling tools on your wig, make sure to apply a heat protectant spray or serum beforehand to minimize damage and keep the hair healthy.

5. Sleeping in Your Wig

• It's best to avoid sleeping in your wig as much as possible to prolong its lifespan.

• If you really need to sleep in it, consider wearing a satin or silk bonnet to protect the wig from friction and minimize tangling.

6. Store Your Hair 

Using a wig stand is recommended for easy care and maintenance.

• It can double as a drying stand after washing your wig and a convenient station for styling and maintaining its shape.

• A dust bag is recommended to store pieces that are not in use.

7. Daily Wear Tips

• Brush your hair before and after you put on, and take off the hairpiece prevent tangling from building up. A paddle brush with blunt tips are recommended.

• To define a new parting line, simply spray the hair with water or hair mousse to slightly wet the hair, and then comb the hair to achieve the new parting - blow dry if needed.

• We offer touch up service if the color has faded over time. You can also bring your hair to your local hairdresser.

• Refill service is also available. If your hair has shed more than you like at certain spots, we can refill the bald spots in and revamp the unit.

• Tape and glue are 100% safe to use, while removing the residue, use dissolvers if needed. Try not to force the remaining tape or glue off the lace as this can rip out hair from the knots.
