Wig cleaning precautions
- Use warm water to wash wigs
When washing the wig, first soak the wig in warm water (15-30 degrees is preferred) for about 5 minutes. Overheating the water will reduce the life of the wig.
- Absolutely cannot be washed in a washing machine
The strong rotation of the washing machine may cause the wig to fall off a lot, or even loose.
- Shampoo should be gentle
Use a small amount of gentle shampoo and hand scrub, do not use too much force or soak for a long time
- Natural air-drying
After cleaning, it cannot be dried with a washing machine, nor can it be dried with a hair dryer or in the sun. It is the most correct way to dry it naturally with a dry towel to absorb water.
- The wig should be ventilated and ventilated
Although the wig is not real hair, air permeability should also be considered when storing it, otherwise the residual moisture and shampoo will easily corrode the wig.
Wig maintenance method:
Try not to be close to high temperature, because most wigs are not resistant to high temperature due to the material (there are already some flame-resistant and heat-resistant artificial fiber materials).
Some wigs cannot be dyed at will. If you need to trim, you can ask a professional stylist to trim the hairstyle.
Wigs are generally washed once every 1-2 months, depending on the frequency of wearing.
Wash with cold or lukewarm water, and use regular shampoo when washing. You can use regular conditioner.
Try not to dry the cleaned wig with high temperature air such as a hair dryer. Use a dry towel to gently absorb the excess water on the wig and put it in a ventilated place to avoid damage to the wig caused by direct sunlight.
Don’t comb the wig immediately after washing, you should wait for the wig to dry before combing.
Use a special comb for wigs (prices vary in wig shops) and cannot use a plastic comb to comb.
The curly hair basically does not use a comb, and the curling place can be sorted by hand after every time it is taken.
If the wig has been used for a long time and it is not easy to comb, don’t pull it hard, you should spray the non-oily maintenance solution for wigs, and then slowly and carefully open it.
Be careful not to spray gel water, hair wax and other styling agents used for real hair on the wig, which will make the wig sticky.
Using the special non-oily maintenance liquid for wigs is also very simple: spray a few times on the wig before wearing it) It can make the wig soft and shiny and prevent static electricity, so that the wig will always be kept moist as if you just bought it. Same when you come back!
The wig can be tied up, but it can’t be tied too high or the real hair below will run out!
When combing a relatively long wig, the wig should be divided into several sections and combed from the bottom to the top. It must be light and patient.
It is normal to have a small amount of hair loss during the process of finishing and wearing.
I usually put it in the original packaging if I don’t wear it, and when I want to take it, it will be back to its original shape.
