Caring For Your Wig

How To Take Proper Care of Your Wig

People often ask "How often do I need to wash my wig"?  The answer depends on several factors such as how often the wig is worn (is it worn every day or only occasionally).  Also the environment that the wig is exposed to will also have an effect, as hot dry and dusty conditions will mean the wig may need to be washed more often than normal.  Generally your wig should be washed "as needed", for instance if only worn once but in a very dusty/dirty environment then it will need to be washed.  Alternatively if only worn for a few hours while out for dinner then you may only need to air it thoroughly. 

  1. Blend well one tablespoon of Wig shampoo in a large tub of cool to lukewarm water (one tablespoon of baking soda can be added to help break down makeup and body oils). Ensure the water is not too hot, as using hot water will damage the fiber of the wig, particularly synthetic fibres. 

  2. Totally immerse your wig in the solution and leave to soak for 5 to 10 minutes.  

  3. Gently swirl your wig around in the solution.  Vigorous agitation of the wig is unnecessary and can cause excessive tangling and knotting of both Synthetic Wigs and Human Hair Wigs, so be gentle. 

    Please Note: If you have make up around the front of the wig, you can lightly scrub with an old soft toothbrush with a paste of baking soda and wig shampoo mixed together. Baking soda is a good cleaning booster that will assist to cut heavy make up stains and residue left on the hair line of the wig. 

  4. Rinse off the wig completely in cold water to ensure any excess shampoo is thoroughly washed out. 

  5. Wash the dish and refill it with nice and clean fresh water. One tablespoons of wig Conditioner can be dissolved in the water. Swish the wig through the water gently. Rinse the wig lightly not to completely washout the conditioner. Your wig can be laid over a towel and you can pat it dry with another towel to soak up the surplus of moisture. 

  6. Allow the wig to dry , preferably over a wig stand so that the cap maintains its shape. 

  7. Once the wig is dry comb it carefully using a wide tooth comb. Make sure you start at the bottom using the comb on only a small portion of the wig then slowly and eventually make your way up the hair until the wig is combed as required. 

    Please Note: 

    Don't comb the curly synthetic wigs and hairpieces as they can lose their curl. Today's synthetics pieces are made to maintain their curl.  Brushing of curly Human Hair pieces should also be dome with care. 

    In the absence of a proper Wig Shampoo we recommend a good quality Salon Shampoo sold in professional Hairdressing salons and Hair dressing suppliers.
