Whether you are wearing a wig or not, hair can tangle easily. Here are a few tips that might help:
Tangling can happen for varying reasons.
Here is a list of a few things to consider:
The quality of the wig and the way the wig is made up. If the cuticles of the hair are not going in the same direction when they are manufactured it will more than likely tangle.
Wigs will tangle more than natural hair as the scalp produces oils to keep the natural hair from drying out and tangling on itself.
Never use a fine tooth comb on any wig as it puts too much pressure on the wig. Always use a wide tooth comb.
When conditioning your wig, comb through the conditioner when the hair is wet. Then comb it again once it is dry. Always comb from the bottom and work your way up so you don’t put too much pressure on the hair.
Using alcohol free, low ph shampoos and conditioners . Sulphate and paraben free products are good as well.
Some wigs will ball up and tangle on the base of the neck. This is caused by friction of a collar rubbing on the wig. Try to avoid wearing bulky collars. Some rough fibres will tangle your hair more than silly fibres. Keep this in mind when choosing your clothes.
Heat defiant wigs will matt up and tangle easier. Use a Detangler and wide tooth comb to comb through your wig or hairpiece each night after wearing. It is essential to treat the hair with conditioner each time you wash the wig or hairpiece.
