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.




• 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.





• 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.
