Once you have invested in a good wig you will want to take care of your investment with regular cleaning and conditioning. Wigs that are worn daily should be washed every 10-14 days and more often if you are using a lot of hair spray and styling cream. To avoid damaging your wig, use only special wig care products.
Before shampooing, gently comb out excess product and snarls with a wide tooth comb. Pour a small amount of shampoo in a basin of cool water and immerse hair in solution and let soak for 30 minutes or more to dissolve body oils and acids. Right before you remove the hair, gently swish it around. Fill basin with fresh clean water and swish hair around until shampoo is removed. Rinse again. Follow with wig conditioner. Do not wring, twist, comb or brush hair while wet. Towel blot hair and place on a wig stand to dry completely.
Wig conditioner is available either as a rinse or spray-on. The rinse is added to the final rinse water after shampooing. The spray can be applied after the wig is placed on the wig stand to dry. In either case, the conditioner should be left on the wig to protect the fibers and extend the life of the wig.
Synthetic wigs are very sensitive to damp heat. Use extreme caution when cooking. Keep steam and hot oven blasts at arms length.
Synthetic wigs will require very little styling. Simply shake out and arrange loosely with fingers or a wig pick. Human hair wigs will require setting and styling much as your own hair would. Always use products designed especially for use with wigs to protect the life of your wig.
