How to wash your human hair wigs well?  

By following these tips, you can restore your wig to a soft and luxurious state.   

1. De-tangle   


You should comb your hair with a wide tooth comb or wig brush, starting from the tip of your hair and going all the way to the root. Be gentle and avoid pulling your hair. You can also use a detangling spray to make this process easier.   

2. Clean the wig  


You should use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for human wigs. Avoid using conventional shampoos and conditioners because they contain irritating chemicals that can damage hair fibers, such as sulfate. Wash the wig with warm water, and then gently put the shampoo into the hair. Rinse thoroughly with cold water and gently squeeze out excess water.   

3. Soften hair fibers   


You can soak the wig in a mixture of cold water and a small amount of fabric softener for about 10-15 minutes. This will help to soften the hair fibers and make them easier to manage. Rinse thoroughly with cold water and gently squeeze out excess water.   

4. Apply conditioner or essence   


You should apply conditioner or hair gel to the wig while it is still wet. This will help to lock in moisture and protect hair from heat damage. Apply a small amount of conditioner or essence to the palm of your hand and gently massage your hair to avoid hair roots.   

5. Air-dried wig   


Let the wig dry on the wig holder or mannequin head. Please don’t use a hair dryer, because high temperature will damage hair fibers. If you need to use a hair dryer, you need to use the lowest gear because of time or install a diffuser on the hair dryer.  

How to maintain your human hair wigs in daily life?  

1. Store wigs correctly  

When you are not using wigs, you need to store them in a cool and dry place, avoiding direct sunlight and exposure to high temperatures or humidity. You can also use a wig cap to protect your wig from dust and dirt when not in use.  

2. Correct wearing and cleaning frequency  

It is usually recommended to wear wigs every 6-8 times or to clean them when they start to look dirty or oily. You should know that the life span of human wigs may vary depending on the frequency and care effect of wearing wigs, so you need to avoid wearing wigs excessively. When you want to wash your wig, you should avoid flushing it often. Excessive washing will lead to dry hair and make hair fibers brittle and easy to break.  

3. Tips for cleaning wigs  

When you wash your wig, be gentle and avoid rubbing or scrubbing your hair hard. This can cause hair fibers to get tangled and damaged. You need to use a gentle touch to make the shampoo run down through your hair.  

4. Intensive care  

You should give your wig a deep conditioning once a month. This will help to nourish hair fibers and restore their natural luster and softness. You can apply the intensive care conditioner to the wig, focusing on the end of the wig, let it stand for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse it thoroughly with cold water.  

5. Nightcap  

When you sleep at night, you can choose to take off human hair wigs or sleep with them on. If you sleep with a wig, you should pay attention to reducing the friction between the wig and the pillow, otherwise, your wig will be dry, dull, and easy to fall off due to friction. You can wrap your hair in a silk nightcap or use a silk pillowcase.  

Final thoughts  

In a word, following the tips above, you can ensure that your wig stays in good condition for as long as possible. Remember to invest in high-quality products and tools and store wigs correctly.
