How To Take Care Of Your Wig Hair 2?
Step 6: Styling Your Human Hair Wig
We recommend using specific hair reconstruct/moisture additive products. They assist in minimizing breakage, tangling or hair loss.
Allow the hair to semi-dry (50%) naturally before actually styling the hair. You will find it easier and the hair will be less likely to tangle at that time.
Use a folding wig stand or a vase/jar to dry your wig.
Style as desired:
To straighten, take a 1-inch section starting at the roots and run a flat iron to the ends.
To curl, wrap the hair around a curling iron and hold for 10 seconds and release.
- To style, blow-dry the hair using the cool setting. Keep in mind, the more blow-drying and heat styling tools being used, the faster the wig will become dry and/or damaged.
- Cool blow-drying will cause the least possible harm to the hair. Air drying is also an option for a more natural look.
- If you choose to make the choice to use thermal tools, always apply a thermal protectant to the hair before styling. We recommend a salon-quality protectant product.
Do’s & Don’ts When Caring For Your Wig
- Do learn the difference in maintenance between a human hair wig and synthetic wig.
- Do invest in shampoo and conditioner especially for your wig.
- Do take your wig to a stylist for any modifications you may want.
- Do keep your wig covered and upright or covered when not in use.
- Don’t use hair spray or shine spray on your wig.
- Don’t use heat to style or dry your wig.
- Don’t sleep or shower with your wig.
- Don’t neglect your own hair to wear a wig.
Warming Tips & Tricks
- When wearing your wig, ensure your scalp is clean and oil-free. When sleeping with a long-hair wig on, braid it in sections or wrap the hair and cover with a silk scarf.
- Wash or rinse all human hair products and style before wearing. Human hair is not ready to wear out of the box.
- Rinsing with hot water will damage the cap.
- Do not dry on a solid form or mannequin head to avoid stretching the cap.
- Store the wig on a wig stand to avoid unwanted kinks or crimps.
- Lace is delicate and should not be tugged or pulled.
- Avoid brushing the hair when wet to prevent damage.
- Any cutting or chemical processes, such as perming or coloring, should be done by a professional hairstylist. We do not recommend lifting or bleaching human hair; depositing color provides the best result.
