Wig Care - The Ultimate Guide
Wigs are a fantastic accessory that allows you to transform your look effortlessly.

In this blog, we will provide you with essential tips on how to care for your wigs, ensuring their longevity and maintaining their natural appearance. Let's dive in!

1. Brushing:
Always use a wig brush or a wide-tooth comb designed specifically for wigs. Start from the ends, gently working your way up to avoid tangles and minimize shedding. Minimize brushing your wig while it's wet for less tangles. Regular brushing will help keep your wig looking smooth and sleek.

2. Washing:
Wash your wig every 2-4 wears, or more frequently if you use styling products or live in a humid climate. Fill a sink or basin with cool water and add a small amount of wig shampoo. Gently immerse your wig into the water and swish it around for a few minutes. Avoid rubbing or squeezing the wig. Rinse thoroughly with cool water until all the shampoo is removed. Repeat if necessary. 

3. Conditioning:
After washing, apply a small amount of wig conditioner, avoiding the roots or knots. Leave the conditioner in for a few minutes to allow it to penetrate the strands. Rinse thoroughly with cool water. Conditioning helps keep the fiber soft, silky, and manageable. (Use do conditioning for raw hair)

4. Drying:
Air drying is the best method for drying your wig. Place it on a wig stand or a towel, allowing it to dry naturally. Avoid using a hairdryer or any direct heat source, as this can damage the fibers. Do not brush or style the wig until it is completely dry.

5. Heat Styling:
Most wigs are heat-resistant, but it's crucial to use styling tools designed for wigs to prevent damage. Use a low heat setting and avoid prolonged exposure to avoid melting or burning the fibers. Always use heat protectant products before styling with heat.

6. Storage:
When not wearing your wig, store it on a wig stand, silk or satin bag, or in a wig box to help maintain its shape and prevent tangling. Keep it away from heat, direct sunlight, and excessive humidity to avoid color fading or fiber damage. If traveling, use a wig box or wig storage bag for added protection.

7. Detangling:
To detangle your wig, start by gently finger combing it to remove any knots or tangles. If necessary, use a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush. Start from the ends, working your way up slowly. Spray a small amount of wig detangler if needed to make the process easier.

8. Avoid Sleeping or Showering with Your Wig:
Sleeping or showering with your wig can cause unnecessary wear and tear. It's best to remove your wig before engaging in these activities to maintain its quality and lifespan. (If you have a any adhesive on your lace to your wig for longevity, make sure you're only wearing your style average 2 weeks, so that you can properly maintain your hair and the wig)

9. Avoid Excessive Styling Products:
While some styling products can enhance the look of your wig, excessive use can lead to buildup and damage the fibers. Use them sparingly and opt for products formulated specifically for wigs.

10. Professional Cleaning and Styling:
