Depending on how often you use your wig, you’d probably have to wash it after about 15 wears, or every four to six weeks.
Follow the steps below on how to wash your synthetic wig properly:
1. DeTangle: Before you wash, you want to make sure your hair isn’t tangled. Use a wide tooth comb to detangle it carefully, starting from the bottom in short strokes.
Be sure to be gentle and do not drag the fibre.
2. Wash Wash Wash: Fill a bowl with Cold water. Do not use hot water as the heat will damage the fibre.
Add some shampoo into the water and
turn the wig inside out then swirl it around in the solution. Do NOT wringe, twist, or rub. Soak your wig in the solution for a few minutes.
3. Rinse Out: Immerse your wig in a fresh bowl of cold water to remove the shampoo.
4. Condition Your Wig: Apply conditioner directly to your wig, stroking downwards from the roots to the end. Make sure you reach every strand of hair.
Leave in for 5 minutes. Then rinse by soaking in another bowl of fresh cold water.
5. Towel Dry: Place the wig between a soft lint-free towel and pat dry. Remember do not rub, squeeze or wring.
6. Air Dry: Gently shake out the wig so it can regain its style. Place the wig on a wig stand or a large vase to dry naturally. Do NOT use a hair dryer, as heat damages synthetic fibres
