Hair Care

Synthetic Hair

Synthetic hair, like human hair, requires regular care but in a different way. By following these simple steps you can maintain your wig for long-lasting use.

Pre-Wash Preparation: Gently comb or brush hair free of all tangles or teasing. Avoid contact with the cap to keep from damaging it.

Shampooing: Gently wash in cold water with mild shampoo and conditioner. Avoid hard rubbing! Let soak for 3-5 minutes. Rinse in clear water in the direction of the hair roots to ends. Roll hair in a towel to absorb excess water.

Drying: Dry the wig naturally at room temperature. Do not brush or comb the wig while it is wet as this may expand the hair shafts and loosen them. Similarly, do not blow dry, microwave, or place in sunlight to try and speed up the drying process as this too will cause damage.

Styling: When the wig is completely dry, brush the wig into desired style. Its pre-set body curl will quickly bounce back into its original shape.

 

Human Hair

Just like your own natural hair, human hair requires regular attention to maintain its good look and texture. By following these simple steps you can maintain your wig for long-lasting use.

Pre-Wash Preparation: Gently comb or brush hair free of all tangles or teasing. Avoid contact with the cap to keep from damaging it.

Shampooing: Rinse the wig in warm water, not hot water as that can result in cap stretching out of shape or cause hair to separate from it. Apply normal shampoo concentrating on the forehead area. Rub gently as with any delicate fabric. Rinse shampoo with warm water in the direction of the hair roots to ends.

Drying: After rinsing, remove excess water by patting in a towel. You can lay the wig flat or place on a wig stand which will allow inside and outside to dry at the same time. Do not brush or comb the wig while it is wet as this may expand the hair shafts and loosen them.

Styling: Once dry, it can be styled using rollers, a blow dryer, curling iron, flat iron and styling products.

Caution: Do not use very hot styling tools on the hair as it will result in tangles, loss of shine, and a dry look.

Styling Tip: When brushing your Human Hair wig always start brushing at the ends working up to the root area. Always brush gently. Excessive brushing or force will only cause the hair to break.

Styling tip: Friction from a couch or pillows may cause the hair to tangle. Use a silk pillowcase.
