When you enter the world of wigs, it is easy to become overwhelmed. With so many options in wig materials, wig styles, wig accessories, and wig products, how can one person figure out the vast world of wigs? To make your transition a bit easier, here are some do’s and don’ts when it comes to wig care.
…use shine spray or normal hairspray on your wig.
Products that are not created specifically for a wig could cause serious damage to the fibers of your wig. While you may wear a human hair wig, you can’t use normal products as if it were your own hair. Instead, look for products that are labeled for wig use to keep the form and quality of your wig.
…use heat to dry your wig.
The fibers of your wig are not created to withstand the harsh heat of a dryer. Like normal hair, heat can damage hair and leave it frizzy and dull. In order to extend the life of your wig, allow to air dry after a cleaning session.
…shower or sleep in your wig.
Sleeping or showering in your wig can cause major tangles that could be impossible to comb out. Sleeping in your wig could also harm the overall form of the wig, while the water pressure in the shower could cause damage to the fibers of your wig.
…learn the difference between wig types.
There are two different types of wigs available, synthetic and human hair. Synthetic is less customizable and is typically worn for a shorter amount of time while a human hair wig can be styled easily and worn for a longer amount of time.
…invest in wig cleansing products.
Your wig is a major investment that should be cared for properly. Investing in quality cleansing products for your wig can help extend the life of your investment.
