How do you keep a synthetic wig from tangling?

November 16th, 2023

One of the disadvantages to owning a synthetic wig is dealing with tangles. Unlike your biological hair, synthetic wigs lack the natural oils your scalp produces to prevent tangling and dryness.There are some guidelines to caring for your synthetics that will help you combat pesky tangles: 

DeTangling Options

  • Use a wide tooth comb and avoid brushes because they tend to pull on the fiber and cause it to matt up easier.

  • Use a detangling spray like Smooth Detangler by BeautiMark to reduce tension and help your comb glide through the fiber. It comes in a handy travel size too!

  • Comb out tangles throughout the day with focus on the nape of your wig. This area is more prone to issues from friction of the fiber rubbing against your shoulders and clothing.

  • Wash and cleanse your wig every 6-8 wears with shampoos and conditioners made for synthetic fiber like the BeautiMark Renew Shampoo & Leave-in Conditioner combo pack. Oils from your skin and build up of styling products can cause matting and tangling as well, so it’s important to keep your wig fresh just like you would your biological hair.

  • Consider a wig that’s dedicated to activities that are high intensity like working out or playing sports. You can also braid, clip or tie your hair back to help keep it tame.

We hope these tips help to keep your synthetic wig looking fabulous and tangle-free all day long!
