Wig Washing Guide: Tutorial
How to wash your synthetic hair products
To wash a wig, follow these steps:
Before washing your hair piece it is advisable to gently brush out the tangles from ends to roots.
Then, in a sink or basin, mix tepid water (25 degrees) with shampoo and immerse the piece. Gently swirl and let soak for 2 minutes.
Rinse the piece in cold water until all of the shampoo is removed.
Refill the basin with tepid water and a dash of fabric conditioner and allow the piece to soak for 10 minutes.
After that, rinse the conditioner out with cold water.
Drying Synthetic Hair Products
Wrap your wig in a towel and gently pat out excess water. Do not twist or brush the hair while wet.
For a wig or half wig, gently fluff it up whilst it is still a bit damp and allow it to air dry on a wig stand (Avoid using a hair dryer or exposing the wig to direct heat). Once the wig is dry, use a wide-toothed comb to brush it out.
It's important to note that synthetic wigs can't be washed as often as human hair wigs, around 2-4 times a year is recommended for synthetic wigs and once a month for human hair wigs.
