How to rejuvenate a Human Hair wig

Human hair wigs can look so real and beautiful.  However, it does take time and effort in order to keep them looking good.  If a human hair wig is cared for properly it should last around 12 months or longer.

Human Hair wigs can become dehydrated after some time and often they become dry and frizzy because they are simply lacking moisture.  There is a very simple way to rejuvenate human hair wigs.  Usually a deep condition to make a huge difference.

Step One: Wash you wig in a basin of tepid water.  Put a small amount of shampoo in the basin firstly and swirl it through the water to dissolve.  Then put your wig in and try not to tangle the hair.

Step Two: Rinse the wig under the tap to remove all the shampoo.

Step Three: Mix some Conditioner and The Ellen Wille Recovery Mask and work it though the hair of the wig. Use the wide tooth comb and distribute the conditioner and mask through the wig.  Make sure you keep the conditioner and mask away from the base of the wig because it can loosen the knots in a mono top.

Step Four: Leave the conditioner and mask for up to 2 hours.

Step Five: Rinse the hair and use a wide tooth comb to style the wig.

Step Six: If you have time to wait let the wig air dry rather than blow drying the hair.

Defences against Tangling

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.

Its also best to use good quality specially formulated wig products when taking care of your wig.

With these few simple tips an d a little care you can help keep your wig looking great for longer.  happy Wiggin!

How to Detangle a Synthetic Wig

What do you do if your wig gets so tangled and looks matted?  Can you bring it back to life?

Here are a few tips to help bring life back into your wig.

The first bit of advice would be to always take special care of your wig.  The more tangled the wig is the harder it is to bring the wig back to its original condition. Always wash and condition your hair wig at least every 6 -7 wears.

However, there are some great products and with a little bit of patience you can bring it back.

Wig DetanglerWig Detangler is a great product.  After you have washed and conditioned your wig, lightly spray detangler throughout the whole wig.  Use a wide tooth wig comb and work gently from the bottom tips about an inch at a time in sections. As each section becomes smooth and the comb glides easily through work on the next section until you have been through the whole wig.  You can use wig detangler every day to keep your wig looking good on dry hair too.






For Heat Defiant Synthetic Wigs, the Easihair Smooth Detangler is a great product that can be used daily.Simply spray lightly on the wig each day and comb through.  Allow the wig to dry and you are ready for the day.  This product eliminates frizz and helps maintain the healthy shine and body of the wig.





Human Hair Care Kit2For Human Hair wigs, The Jon Renau Human Hair Kit includes a Moroccan Oil Treatment which will help with tangles as well.  You can just rub your fingertips with the Moroccan oil through the hair and comb through starting from the bottom and working your way up to the crown. The Human hair specially formulated Shampoo and Conditioner is a great way to keep your wig in great condition.




Just a couple of things to note:

  • When detangling a wig always start with small sections at the bottom of the wig and gradually work your way up until you have combed through and detangled each section.  Excessive combing and pulling on hair can cause the wig to loose hair.
  • If you manage your wig each day the upkeep is much less.  The more tangled the wig is, the harder it is to bring it back.
