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!
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.
