Good maintenance of your wig is essential. This is because how you care for your wig determines how long it will last.
Always use a heat defence spray while using heat with the hair like ironing
Use serum / spray in your hair to keep it silky, shiny, and tangle free. But remember that you only need a pea-sized amount – a little goes a long way. If you’re using a spray, hold the bottle 20cm away from the hair and spray lightly. Too much serum can build up on the hair, making it tangle and appear dull. So, the more frequently you apply serum, the more you’ll need to wash your hair.
Wash your hair at least once a week or once in 2 weeks depending upon the harshness exposed to your hair. But make sure you’ve brushed out all the tangles beforehand. How often you wash your hair will depend on things like air quality and humidity.
Brush your wig / weave twice a day, starting at the tips. When brushing, hold your hair in the middle. Gently and slowly brush out the tangles at the ends, working your way up to the top of your head. Don’t brush vigorously as this will cause the hair to shed (and curly hair to lose its curl). A detangling brush or wide-toothed comb may be used to brush out severe tangles.
Never sleep with wet or damp hair.
We recommend air drying your hair. Gently pat your hair with a dry towel and leave it to stand. If you use a blow dryer, always use a medium heat setting.
Spray leave-in conditioner and brush gently. Don’t tug on the hair as it may loosen the weft and cause shedding.
Deep condition the hair regularly to maintain its optimal condition. If heating tools are used frequently, deep condition at least once a month. If the hair has been coloured or chemically treated, increase this to twice a month.
The best way to maintain the health of your wig is to treat it like your own hair. Natural oils, deep treatment and cremes are some of the best ways to keep it from becoming dry or brittle.
Store your wig on a mannequin or wig stand when not in use.
