How to Maintain

A wig is a great way to enjoy a new hairstyle but it is still different from natural hair. It is important to take good care of a wig to extend its lifespan and maintain an attractive appearance. Here are 5 tips that may be helpful to wig wearers.

How to Care for a Synthetic Wig

♦ You should try to avoid all heat sources while wearing your wig. Heat will damage the synthetic fibers of the wig as they will become singed and partially melted.

♦ Don’t dye synthetic wigs. It is strongly recommended to ask a professional hairdresser to trim, shape or thin out the wig.

♦ It is recommended that you wash your wig one or twice every month according to wearing frequency.

♦ Choose a slightly acidic shampoo, use hair conditioner and wash in mild water.

♦ Make sure the water flows in the same direction during washing and avoid rubbing the wig heavily.

♦ Do not comb or brush the wet wig. Style the wig when it is dry.

♦ Using a wig brush on a wig is okay, but I suggest using a METAL WIDE TOOTH COMB and avoid using a plastic brush.

♦ For tight, curly, or ringlet styles try the “Shake & Go” method, or gently lift and separate the curls with a pick comb or your fingers. Do not brush.

♦ Don’t apply facial gel or hair wax on the wig, which will make the wig very sticky.

♦ Refrain from pulling the comb forcefully through the tangles. Pulling will not only pull the hair off of the "tracks" of the wig but the pulling will also cause the synthetic hair to become frizzy. Spray your synthetic wig with a light oil sheen to restore luster that was lost while getting rid of the tangles.

♦ It is very normal for the synthetic wig to have a certain amount of shedding.

♦ You can also use a“spray-in”conditioner. Simply spray your wig thoroughly before wearing to keep the hair soft and static free. With the Spray in conditioner, your wig will look like the first time you took it out of the box.

♦ Please store your wig on a wig stand or mannequin head in a cool, dry location avoiding extreme temperatures, mold and dust, which will help maintain the shape, cleanliness and style of your wig.

How to Care for a Human Hair Wig

♦ Please don’t color human hair wigs by yourselves. It is a very risky experiment and might have a bad result. However, if you still prefer to dye your own wigs, please keep in mind that you should never try to dye a darker color wig into a lighter color. Strongly recommend to ask the professional hairdresser to trim, shape or thin out the wig.

♦ NEVER sleep on wet hair; your hair must be completely dry before going to sleep as sleeping on a wet lace wig WILL cause hair to be very matted.

♦ Don’t soak the hand-tied human hair wigs for a long time since it will damage the knots in the wigs. When you wash the wig, please treat it very carefully just like your own hair.

♦ Choose a slightly acidic shampoo, use hair conditioner and wash in mild water.

♦ Make sure the water flows in the same direction during washing and avoid rubbing the wig heavily.

♦ Do not comb or brush the wet wig. Style the wig when it is dry.

♦ Gently blot excess water with hand or towel (do not twist or brush); shake vigorously and hang upside down to air dry (usually overnight). Do not blow dry the wig. Do not brush wig when wet. Do not wear wig with wet cap or dry wig on head or Styrofoam, as this will stretch the cap.

♦ Using a wig brush on a wig is okay, but I suggest using a METAL WIDE TOOTH COMB.

♦ Refrain from pulling the comb forcefully through the tangles. Pulling will not only pull the hair off of the "tracks" of the wig but the pulling. Spray your wig with a light oil sheen to restore luster that was lost while getting rid of the tangles.

♦ For straight styles brush in long, even, gentle strokes. Starting at the bottom, gently comb the hair using a downward motion, with a wide-tooth comb or finger style. Gradually move up until you have combed all the hair. Never begin combing at the top or middle. It will damage and tangle the hair.

♦ It is very normal for the human hair wig to have certain amount of shedding.

♦ Please store your wig on a wig stand or mannequin head in a cool, dry location avoiding extreme temperatures, mold and dust, which will help maintain the shape, cleanliness and style of your wig.
