How I maintain and keep the integrity of my wigs? How I keep my wigs clean? Here are some wig care tips.
For my wigs, I personally do not submerge them into the water. I feel like it gets tangled mated and loses the integrity of the wig. So what I do is I like to use a dry shampoo. Especially the one by herbal essences. You can buy them from Amazon. The dry shampoos are so convenient.
Just shake it and spray it on the hair. It literally revives the hair, takes that necessary oil for protecting the hair. Obviously, you can use this on human hair, but I also use it for my wigs as well. I find the dry shampoo does remove the excess oil but it also revives it. So if it seems like your wig is falling flat and it doesn’t have many waves. Try the dry shampoo and it might give it a boost of life.
The next thing I like to do is use a conditioning spray. You can also use dry conditioner and I like to use detangling conditioning spray. I just spray this onto the hair. I am careful with my wigs. I don’t swear a lot of it on this hair. I can easily run through this wig. After using the shampoo and the conditioner spray, it is perfectly fine and I love that.
Detangling is also super important in maintaining your wigs, especially if you have like wavy or straight wigs, super curly texture, kinky wigs. I don’t use a detangling brush to detangle it. I only use a paddle brush if I want it more fuller, bigger, larger, more volume but not for detangling. I prefer not to detangle kinky wigs. But for my wavy or my straight wigs detangling is a must. I like to use a large paddle brush there. Start from the ends just like your natural hair and move up. Which you can do is spray the conditioner spray on your hair and then go back in with your paddle brush, so that it is easier to detangle.
So if you find your curly or wavy wigs are starting to become flat, the curls are falling, One thing I love to do is to take a curling iron and then just curl the hair. You can take a small section of hair and begin to wrap the hair around the curling rod.
Okay, so since this is a wig. I like to go in with my blow dryer on medium heat and then kind of blow-dry the hair, not putting the blow dryer directly on the hair. You can do a loose curl.
So my last tip is extremely important if you want your wig to last longer. You have to store it properly. Storing your wig back in the box when you received. Especially the lazy girl, when you come home and you just throw your wig off and just throw it in the side. But girls, you know if you want to maintain her, you have to put her in her package. Put her back in her home.
This is so important to put this over your wig and then store your wig back into the bag. So use this, don’t throw wig away. This keeps all the hair together. It also holds the style. If you ever wonder how like when you pull the wig out the package the curls are still fresh, the hair is not going anywhere.
That is all for my wig maintenance and tips. Hope you enjoy it.
