Correct washing and care of a wig is crucial for the durability of your hairpiece. In this post we would like to show you the most important care tips so that you can enjoy your wig for a long time.
How to wash a wig properly
If you want to wash your wig, turn the inside out first. Then let cold water flow over the hairpiece. When the wig is sufficiently wet, apply the usual amount of shampoo to the inner net and distribute it with even pressure over the lengths of the hair. Basically, washing the inside is usually much more important, as impurities tend to accumulate rather than in the lengths of the hair. Now gently press the hood and the length of the hair through, regularly brushing through the Peruvian Hair. Do not wash your hair like you would wash your own hair! You run the risk of the hair becoming entangled and matted. It is enough if the wig is washed once, a second process is hardly necessary. Then rinse the wig in the direction of the fibers.
When it comes to care, but also when choosing a shampoo, it is crucial what type of hair your wig has. Human hair wigs require a lot more maintenance than synthetic hair wigs. The reason for this is simple: Synthetic hair cannot absorb the care like real hair because it has no cuticle and hair fibers. The same applies to care (balm, conditiner, hair mask). Using a shampoo for heavily damaged hair is great for real hair, but doesn't work for synthetic hair. The reverse is also true for synthetic hair care, we would be happy to advise you personally and without obligation. If you apply a conditioner or mask to the wig, only apply it to the lengths and ends, but never to the knots of the wig. Why ?: The knots of the wig would become soft and slippery as a result of the care and could open up with the result of hair loss. You should therefore only apply the care product to lengths and ends, but leave it to work for a few minutes.
Comb and style the wig
When styling the wig through, you have to pay special attention to the hood and the network of the hairpiece. The tissue is damaged all too quickly and often it can no longer be repaired. Therefore, carefully comb the wig always a few centimeters over the net or fabric over it to avoid tearing the wig.
