How to Care for Wigs, Hairpieces & Hair Extensions

One of the keys to making your wigs, hairpieces and hair extensions look great longer, is proper care. Love your hair & it will love you back! Here are tips to help guide cleansing, conditioning and styling.

 

 

Cleansing & Conditioning

Synthetic hair and human hair each have special needs in order to maintain their optimal look and feel. Wigs, hair extensions & hairpieces made from human hair or synthetic hair endure intense chemical processing during production. Prolonging that supple movement crucial to a natural look is a must! 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. Watch our video on How to Wash a Wig like an Expert. The simple tips and techniques outlined here can make all the difference!


Product

While a regular gentle shampoo might seem like a good idea, you'll be MUCH better off with a product custom designed to meet the needs of highly processed hair. You'll protect your investment and keep your hair looking terrific. Unlike most wig care products, BeautiMark is it is free of toxic parabens. The BeautiMark Pure Care line, specially formulated for human hair, contains no color-stripping sulfates.
Expert Tip: If you are new to wearing hair, consider a kit that will outfit you with all that you need. Wigs.com loves the BeautiMark collection formulated specifically for wearable hair and free of parabens.

  

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.

Expert Tip: 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.


Manipulate & Finish
