Wigs and Hair Solutions provides a variety of care options for your new wig, from defrizzing to shampooing!

If you’re new to wearing wigs, navigating the various maintenance options can seem intimidating! Luckily for you, Wigs and Hair Solutions provides a variety of care options for your new wig, from defrizzing to shampooing! Discover how you can take care of your wig when you’re away from the salon with the following tips. 

Can I Shampoo my Synthetic Wig? 

If you’re washing your own synthetic wig, it’s important only to use products specifically designed for wigs. Regular shampoos can damage the hair fibers of your wig and shorten its lifespan. Synthetic wigs should be washed every four to six weeks, so consider scheduling an appointment for that time.  

Can I Sleep in my Wig? 

When you sleep in your wig, the pillow can cause friction and tangle or tear the follicles of your hairpiece. Wigs should be kept on a stand at night to maintain its shape. During the chilly, winter nights, we recommend wearing a sleep cap to keep your head warm. 

Can I Cut my Wig? 

Unless you’re a professional hair stylist comfortable working with wigs, do not cut your own wig. If you’re ready for a new style, make an appointment at Wigs and Hair Solutions. You can have your wig trimmed and styled, or you can select a new wig!

Can I Shower in my Wig?

To maintain the beauty and shape of your wig, remove it before showering or swimming. Pool chemicals and saltwater can take its toll on a new wig, and you want it to last as long as possible! Consider a shower or swim cap if you prefer to keep your head covered. 

How Do I Store my Wig? 

Whether you’re sleeping or simply giving your wig a break, make sure that it’s stored properly. Use a wig stand or hard surfaced mannequin to avoid stretching the cap. Store the wig in a dry area away from direct sunlight to maintain its lovely color and shape.
