MAINTENANCE GUIDE FOR HUMAN WIG

 

Your human hair wig is a great investment that should be treated with the utmost care.  The better it is maintained, the more gorgeous it will look.  Follow these tips to maintain the style & prolong the life of your wig; 

 

DAILY MAINTENANCE

 

1. Keeping your wig moisturized is crucial to retaining its fabulous style.  We recommend you use styling products containing minimal amounts of alcohol and use silicone based moisturisers.

Moisturisers reduce tangles and hydrate the hair without weighing it down.  Wig sprays can also be used to keep the wig fresh.  Be aware that excessive product use can create build up on the hair and affect its performance.  Washing helps to eliminate this.  

 

2. Before styling, gently brush the hair through with a paddle brush (or a wide toothed comb for curly styles) working from the end of the hair to the root.  Lightly wetting the hair and spraying a small amount of leave in conditioner on the ends will help keep the hair’s hydration to its optimum. 

 

3. Styling mousse and serum are essential styling tools. For curly or wavy styles, distribute a small amount of styling mousse over the hair with your hands, lightly scrunch the hair in your hands and use your fingers to separate the style into curls.  For straight styles, use a small amount of serum and brush lightly.

 

4. At night, gently brush through the hair to get rid of any tangles, add a small amount of hair moisturiser or leave in conditioner and store on a mannequin head to help retain the wig’s style.

 

HEAT STYLING

 

Although 100% human hair is genuine, real hair, heat shortens its life span as it dehydrates the hair.  All heated appliances can be used to a recommended temperature of 250 degrees Celsius. 

Always use a heat protective product on the hair before applying heat and moisturisers once finished. Do not apply heat directly to the wig’s cap excessively, as this can cause shedding.  Avoid using hot stove iron appliances.

 

WASHING

 

Recommend that you wash your wig a maximum of once per fortnight to avoid product build up, and as washing deteriorates the quality of the hair slightly after each wash.

 

To wash;

1. Gently detangle the hair by combing through with a paddle brush (or a wide toothed comb for curly styles), working from the end of    the hair to the root.

 

2. Run lukewarm water through the hair.

 

3. Add one tablespoon of a mild, highly moisturising shampoo that is pH balanced, to a basin filled with cold or lukewarm water.

 

4. Immerse the wig into the basin for one minute and agitate gently. Do not rub. Remove the wig and gently massage through the hair by squeezing out excess water with your fingers, working your way down the length of the hair.  Do not rub or twist the hair.

 

5. Rinse thoroughly, towel dry, then apply a generous amount of moisture rich conditioner and leave for around 10 minutes. Rinse the hair then pat dry with a towel, taking care not to wring the hair.

 

6. Spray leave in conditioner on the hair then ideally leave to air dry, as heat from a hair dryer dehydrates the hair.

 

7. Comb the wig and style only when completely dry.

 

HOW LONG WILL YOUR WIG LAST?

 

How long your wig lasts depends on how well it is maintained and the amount of use it sustains.  With the best care & maintenance, your human hair wig could last for several weeks.

 

PLEASE BE AWARE:

 It is normal for your wig to experience some light tangling and shedding as wear increases and after the wig has been washed. Follow our daily maintenance tips to reduce this.   

 

The nape of the wig is more likely to experience tangling compared to other areas due to friction. Using a leave in conditioner and an anti frizz serum in this area minimizes tangles.

 

If your wig has a skin parting on the crown, handle with care to avoid hair loss in this section. 

 

To completely restyle the wig, we recommend taking it to a professional stylist. 

 

We cannot guarantee curly styles will retain their curls following extensive wear or after washing. Re-curl with a curling iron or apply retention sprays to help preserve the style.

 

We do not recommend that you re-color your human hair wig. 

 

The lace unit on lace front wigs is very delicate, and must be handled with care to avoid tearing.
