Who doesn’t love a good hair day? If you’re like most people, then having your hair look great is important to you. Of course, not everyone has the time or money for frequent trips to the salon. This can be especially true if you wear human hair wigs on a regular basis. But don’t worry – there are some simple things that you can do at home to keep your wig looking beautiful and feeling soft. With these tips, it will be easier than ever to have all of the benefits of wearing human hair without any of the drawbacks.
Remember to use mild shampoo to clean your wig. This will help remove any dirt and oil without damaging your hair or removing too much of its natural oils. Then, rinse the wig thoroughly with cool water until all of the shampoo is removed from it, as hot water can cause damage by drying out the hair even more than usual. It is important to make sure that all of the shampoo is rinsed away, as shampoos can contain chemicals and dyes that will stain your hair if they are not washed out completely.
After you have finished washing your wig, place it on a towel and roll up the ends as you would with a towel around yourself after stepping out of the shower. This will help to remove more water from your wig. If you don’t have time to let it air dry, then gently blot the hair with a towel instead of rubbing it in order to avoid causing damage.
Brushing and Detangling Never brush human hair or custom made wigs while wet because this can cause damage and breakage that may make it more difficult to style your wig. To avoid tangles, use a wide-tooth comb or brush that is designed for wet hair instead of the ones you typically use on dry human hair wigs. Use detangler spray if needed in order to keep your wig looking beautiful and feeling soft without any damage. If your wig is very long, you should consider dividing it into smaller sections and only detangling one section at a time.
Preventing Heat Damage
Never use blow dryers or curling irons on wet human hair wigs because this can cause damage from the heat as well as tangles that may make styling even more difficult. If desired, however, you can let your wig air dry and then style it with a curling iron or hair straightener. When you do use heat, be sure to spray a heat protectant on the hair first.
When you are finished wearing the human hair wig, always store it in a container that has been lined with fabric designed to keep wigs from being crushed when not being worn. This will help prevent damage that could make your wig look old and worn even when it is still in very good condition.
It’s important to keep your human hair wig looking like new if you want it to appear lifelike. That is why you should keep in mind these tips on how to clean and maintain your human hair wigs. If you follow these tips for cleaning and maintenance, you’ll have a beautiful, healthy-looking wig for years to come.
