Care Of Your Wig

Cleaning Frequency

Generally, a wig should be washed after 12-15 wearings in spring and summer and after 6-8 wearings in fall or winter. Factors such as air quality and humidity will contribute to frequency of washing, as it does with your own hair.

Washing Your Wig

Brush the wig thoroughly with a wig brush. •Add one tablespoon of wig shampoo to a sink filled with coldwater.•Immerse wig for one minute and agitate GENTLY. Do not rub.•Rinse gently in cold clear water twice or until thoroughly rinsed. •Blot gently with a towel. Do not squeeze or wring.•Apply conditioning spray very lightly over wig, spraying 10-12 inches from the wig.•Allow to air dry on a slender object like a can of hairspray or the shampoo bottle covered with a hand towel. •DO NOT USE A HAIRDRYER! This will damage the wig. You may gently style the wig with your fingertips. •Brush wig only when completely dry. Do not allow the wig to dry in direct sunlight.
 

Styling Your Wig

Your wig can be styled by using a wig brush, a wig comb, or your fingertips. Avoid using standard hair brushes, as these brushes can create excessive tension, over-stretching the hair with abrasive strokes that may damage the hair. Styling is enhanced between washings with liquid mousse. For curly or wavy styles, it is considered an essential styling tool. Just mousse, hand scrunch, and pick the style into curls. On straight styles, mousse and brush lightly. Your wig was designed with a basic style but the variations you can achieve through styling are limitless. Added height can be achieved by gently lifting with the wig comb. If you want added fullness as well, tease or backcomb and then smooth the surface hair over the teasing. To return your wig to its basic style, simply brush thoroughly, clean, and allow to air dry.

To COMPLETELY RESTYLE, we recommend taking your wig to a professional stylist.

No No's

1. Do NOT expose your wig to heat in excess of 160°. (Like opening an oven door, standing near a barbecue grill, etc.) This will damage the wig fibers. Any type of heat will cause wig fibers to frizz (lamps, ovens/stoves, heat from body).

2. Do NOT brush your wig when wet.
 

3. Do NOT use any form of curling irons, hot rollers or blow dryers. Again, heat will ruin the wig.
4. Do NOT use products other than wig care products. Only use wig shampoo and conditioner and brushes or combs made especially for wigs. Only use hairspray made for wigs. We sell these wig care products at a discounted price or they can also be purchased from any wig store.

5. Do not use any form of human hair mousse, gels, hairspray, or spritzers.
 

DO:
Do use products specifically designed for wigs.

Do have your wig styled and cut by a professional hairstylist to customize it, if desired. If you can use your own hairstylist, this is best because he or she knows how you normally wear your hair. Make sure that whoever styles or cuts it is experienced in working with wigs.

Do keep wig stored on a wig stand or other "makeshift" item (such as a can of hairspray). This will help it hold its style and shape.

Enjoy your wig and have fun wearing it!
