What you'll Need

 

  1. Folding Wig Stand
  2. Wide tooth Comb
  3. Synthetic or Human hair shampoo
  4. Synthetic or Human hair conditioner
  5. Towel

 

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 or rub 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 4a: Condition Synthetic Hair

Spray leave-in conditioner from the mid-shaft to the ends.Tip: Avoid the root or knots.

 

Step 4b: Condition 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 6a: Dry Synthetic Hair

Air dry on a folding wig stand. Tip: Gently part the hair with a comb before wig dries.

 

Step 6b: Dry Human Hair

Blow dry about 80% and then round brush until smooth.
