How to Care for your Wigs
Firsly, remember that human hair wigs are made with 100% human hair and hand-tied onto a lace cap in the closure area and on bundles in the weft area , therefore frequent use and combing might cause tangling and shedding.
Also keep in mind that they need a lot of care because they don't have those natural nutrients that runs from the scalp to the hair shaft hence, you should treat them as you would your own hair by washing and especially conditioning regularly.
When your wig arrives, it'll feel nice, soft and lovely and after a few wears, it might start to feel dull. This is similar to when you have your hair done in the salon, it feels great the first few days/weeks and starts to gradually loose its shine. So again it's really important to constantly maintain it.
These wigs will last 2-3 years depending on how well they are looked after.
Lace wigs will shed overtime simple because each strand is hand tied onto the lace cap. Frequent combing will cause the strand to come out and shed. In other to ensure your wig lasts for as long as possible, follow these simple instructions.
. Reduce the amount of heated tools you use on styling your wigs. if you do need to use one, ensure you use a heat protectant
We recommend using heatless curling methods like a bendy roller set as an alternative to hot tongs
. Try not to sleep with your wig on regularly. Sleeping with your wig on, will cause the hair to rub against your bedding which can cause tangling and will require additional combing.
. Do not use heavy creams or oils to add sheen to your wig. Only use a very light based oil like Argan oil and ensure you use very little of it sparingly . 1 to 2 drops twice a week is enough .
. Wash and Condition your wig with a moisturising shampoo/conditioner once to twice a month (largely dependent on how often you wear it) .
Deep condition at least once a month. Leave hair in deep conditioner overnight to penetrate deeply.
Try not to apply conditioner on the lace cap area as it can soften the knots and cause it to shed
- When combing your wig, start to comb from the tips first and move gradually upwards to the roots. This will minimise shedding.
- Finally, to help your wig last longer, avoid wearing it everyday. I recommend getting a second wig so you can alternate between wigs.
