De-tangle your hairpieces
Before washing your wig, it is crucial to de-tangle every strand of the wig. Do this task with great care. For this purpose, one can use a wide tooth comb. Comb your wig with a light hand and gently remove every tangle from the hairpieces. Remember don’t to pull or drag the fiber of your wig. This will damage your synthetic hairs.
Washing of wig:
Hot water damages the fiber of the wig so always use cold water for washing. Fill a bowl with cold water. Now mix a capful of any high-quality shampoo into the bowl and fully immerse your wig or hairpiece into the bowl. Soak your wig into the water and carefully rub it to get rid of dust.
Rinse your wig:
Now take out the wig from the shampoo and shift it into another bowl filled with cold water. Place the full wig into the pot and wash it to remove the all shampoo from it. Be careful while performing this whole procedure and do not squeeze or wring your wig or hairpiece. It will damage the strands and material of your wig.
Sometimes the only use of shampoo will make your wigs rough and dull. For avoiding this situation, it is crucial to wash the wig with any synthetic wig special conditioner. Apply any conditioner of your choice directly to your wig and stroke it from roots to the downward position with light hands. Take this step slow and don’t do massage. Leave the conditioner almost for 4-5 minutes and rinse your wig with cold water thoroughly.
Dry the wig:
Don’t use wet wigs. Don’t do comb, rub, wring, twist, brush or comb your wig after washing. Place your wig on the large folded towel. Pat dries the wig for 3-4 times. Never squeeze and twist the strands of your wig while drying it. Make sure the wig dry properly. Now remove the wig from the towel.
Styling and dry hairs:
For regaining the style of your wig, gently shake it. An alternative way of regaining its style is light combing on your wig with the help of wide comb or your fingers.
