How to Care for your Wigs and Extensions
I've come to the realization that a lot of women are unsure on how often to wash or treat their extensions and wigs. Just like your natural hair, it requires attention. Leaving it unwashed for a long period of time will only make it worse. So, on that note, Get to washing! And if for some reason you're too lazy to wash it, we do offer a wig revamp service. See site for more details.
Below, I made a list of guidelines that will ensure your hair stays vibrant and flawless. These are the steps I personally use to care for my own wigs and extensions.
TO CLEAN YOUR WIG
• Gently remove tangles using a shampoo
comb or paddle brush and turn inside out.
• Soak for 5 minutes in a solution of cold
water and a capful of shampoo. Rinse.
Apply sulphate free conditioner (Silicon mix,
Biosilk, Silicon Bambu, or Garnier Nutrisse)
• Swirl gently without rubbing or wringing.
Brush from ends to roots to remove any
tangles if any. I recommend brushing your
units upside down.
• Rinse thoroughly in cool water and turn
right side out again.
WHILE YOUR WIG IS STILL WET
• Do not rub, wring, twist, or comb.
• Place on wig stand (available online for
purchase) or you can use our new and
improved (wig hangers) for longer wigs.
(Avoid using a Styrofoam styling head or canva heads
when wig is wet, as the cap may stretch).
• Allow to air dry at room temperature.
*Remember, never use a blow dryer to
dry a wig!
Brush, comb, pick or finger-style into
your desired look. For curly styles,
finger-style it or use a wide tooth comb.
When brushing a human hair style, start
at the ends and gently work your way to
the roots. ALWAYS use a heat protectant
oil or spray when applying heat.
Do not use oil based products everyday.
This will leave your hair dry overtime.
