Expert Recommended Wig Care Tips

by Register Staff 09 Sep 2022

Wigs are a great alternative to the hassle of hair loss treatments, hair changes or wanting an overall hair change, but wigs require just as much maintenance as natural hair does. Whether you buy a synthetic wig that is heat friendly or try out one made from real human hair, maintenance is always required. These expert recommended wig care tips are designed to simplify the process and ensure that your wig is looking its best at all times!

Choose between Human vs Synthetic

If you are someone that prefers to style their wig with hot tools often, then a human hair wig might be best for you. Synthetic wigs and heat are usually a bad mix, but brands like It's A Wig! offers a variety of 350-400-degree heat friendly synthetic wigs. Synthetic wigs are a great option for costumes, occasions, or temporarily switching up your look!

Cut the wig

Cutting the wig adds layers and dimension, which gives the wig a more natural look. Remember, cutting hair is irreversible, so be sure to go to an expert if you aren't comfortable doing it yourself!

Pick the right brush

Use a brush specifically designed for wigs as regular hair brushes have bristles that may be too harsh on the wig fibers, causing tension and shedding.

Keep your wig clean and stored properly

Use gentle shampoos and conditioners specifically designed for wigs if you want to wash your wig in water, or use a dry shampoo to clean it instead. Don't use hot water when you wash your human hair wig — always use cool or warm water. Store your wig on a wig stand when you're not wearing it, especially for longer wigs.

Avoid using glue to apply lace front wigs, but if you still want to try it, always spot test your hairline first to make sure the adhesive won't cause irritation.

Use proper products

To keep your wig looking fresher for longer, you need to make sure that you use the correct wig care products based on the type of wig you wear; ensuring you buy the relevant products for synthetic and human hair wigs.
