Step 1: Detangle
Before you wash, make sure you carefully detangle the hair using a wide tooth comb. Start from ends and work toward the root to decrease shedding.

Step 2: Rinse
Use lukewarm water and rinse from roots to ends. Do not soak as this can lead to tangling. Tip: If your wig is curly, try leaving the hairnet on

Step 3: Shampoo
Loosen shampoo in your hands and work through the hair. Distribute a small amount of shampoo evenly throughout the hair. Tip: Use circular motions to clean the cap

Step 4: Condition
A) For synthetic hair: Spray leave-in conditioner from the mid-shaft to the ends. Tip: Avoid the root or knots B) For human hair: Leave in for a few minutes before rinsing. Do NOT apply conditioner to the root. Tip: If dry or damaged, use a deep conditioner

Step 5: Rinse
Let lukewarm water flow in the same direction of the hair to avoid tangling. Squeeze and press the hair; do NOT wring. Tip: Towel blot to remove excess water

Step 6: Dry
A) For synthetic hair: Air dry on a folding wig stand Tip: Gently part the hair with a comb before wig dries B) For human hair: Blow dry about 80% and then round brush until smooth

Cleansing & Conditioning

Synthetic hair and human hair each have special needs in order to maintain their optimal look and feel.

To keep your wearable hair in tip top shape, you must use specially formulated hair care product designed to accommodate whichever fiber you are wearing or working with. There is no need to cleanse daily, but there are other steps necessary before or after each wear. The simple tips and techniques outlined here can make all the difference!

Styling

One of the greatest benefits of synthetic wigs is that they require very little maintenance and do not have to be restyled after every wash. With synthetic hair you’ll want to steer clear of intense heat -- even a short burst of heat from an oven can cause irreparable fiber damage. If style versatility or daily styling routine is something you enjoy, human hair or heat-friendly synthetic hair is the way to go.

As different occasions call for different priorities, many of our clients keep both human hair and synthetic hair in their wardrobe. Having backups means you’ll always have hair that is ready to wear.

Suggestion: If you fall in love with a human hair or heat-friendly synthetic hair wig consider getting two. You can avoid overtaxing hair by keeping one styled curly and the other one straight.

HYDRATE

While you will want to wash your wearable hair as infrequently as possible, it is critical that you hydrate daily with leave-in conditioner. Natural hair is kept hydrated with oils from the scalp. This, of course, does not happen with wigs or hair add-ons. These products will also protect hair prior to any heat styling.
