Wig Care

CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR WIG

The key word is gently

You have made an important decision in purchasing your wig. To ensure the longevity of your wig, please follow the care instructions.

Store your wig on a wig stand that is collapsible, so as not to stretch your wig, in a cool dry location.

If you wear a wig regularly, try to have at least two to choose from, and rotate them to extend the life of the wig.

Only use hair products that are specially formulated for your wig. Never use hairspray or other products for human hair as it can cause the fibers to deteriorate.

Be gentle when shampooing your wig. It is recommended that you shampoo your wig every two weeks, considering you wear it every day. If you wear it less than every day then you need to wash it less.

Before you wash your wig make sure there are no knots in the wig by applying conditioner to the knotty area and gently combing the knots away.

In your bathroom sink in cool or cold water, never hot, place your wig all the way in the water and wet thoroughly. Lift wig out of the water and apply shampoo to the crown of the wig. Make sure by running the shampoo in downward strokes that it comes to a lather. When it is soapy and lathered, place back in the sink and swirl it around.

Leave your wig to soak in the soapy water for ten minutes, then rinse it thoroughly, ensuring you remove all trace of the shampoo. Give your wig a good shake over the bathtub to remove excess water. With a dry towel, give the wig a good blot to remove more water.

Place your wig on your wig stand to dry, either outside in summer or indoors in winter. Do not brush the wig whilst wet. With long hair wigs, you simply lie them on a towel to dry, making sure you move the wig around so as to dry it all over.

When the wig is completely dry, spray the leave-in conditioner. Do not saturate - just a few pumps are enough. Once that dries, in around ten minutes, your wig is ready to wear.

DO NOT USE HEAT, SUCH AS BLOW DRYERS, FLAT OR CURLING IRONS ON SYNTHETIC WIGS. ALSO, IF YOU ARE COOKING, BEWARE OF LARGE AMOUNTS OF STEAM COMING FROM BOILING POTS, OVENS AND DISHWASHERS. WIGS WON'T CATCH ALIGHT BUT THEY WILL SINGE AND ONCE THIS HAPPENS THE WIG IS BEYOND REPAIR.
