How-To Care for a Human Hair Wig
Many people wonder whether you need to wash a human hair wig before wearing it. That is a personal choice. You do not need to wash the wig initially. Eventually, many choose to wash it once a week, depending on how long and often you are wearing it as well as how active you are when wearing it. Washing your wig will limit its lifespan so you do not want to over wash it. To decrease the amount you need to wash your wig, wear a wig cap and remove the wig before going to bed.
Washing Your Human Hair Wig
Before you wash, use a wide tooth comb or your fingers to comb out the tangles. After the wig is free of knots, rinse the wig under lukewarm water. After rinsing, gently remove the excess water. Put a small amount of shampoo in your hands and stroke the wig from roots to end. Rinse the shampoo gently from the wig.
To condition, work a small dab of conditioner from the bottom the wig to the top. Gently comb the human hair wig through your finger. Let it sit for 5 minutes before rinsing out the conditioner.
Once the wig is washed, use a towel to gently blot the wig. Let it hang until fully dry. Wait until the wig is dry to style.
Most human hair wigs can be styled with heating tools such as curling irons. Consult with the wig provider before styling your wig. Everyday Beautiful provides premier human hair wigs in Largo, Florida. Visit our wig shop or shop online.
