Human hair wigs give the most natural look. The wig’s color, luster, elasticity, and texture might trick people into thinking it’s natural hair. A well-kept wig can also be redesigned, colored, or trimmed according to the latest fashions and trends.
At Raveen Hair Replacement in Greensboro, NC we carry a full line of Paul Mitchell hair care and treatment products to give your wig the care it deserves, including conditioner, shampoo, and the latest styling formulas. Read on to learn how to care for your wig and make it last longer.
Avoid Wearing the Same Wig Daily
If you wear a human wig daily, it might wear out quickly because it’s fragile. The strands might tear, affecting hair color and overall look. Make sure you invest in two or more headscarves and rotate them constantly if you wear wigs a lot.
Avoid Washing Your Wig Often
It would be best to wash your wig thoroughly to preserve it better. But if you wash your wig often, it’ll soon get damaged. Your wig should be washed after about eight wear times or every three weeks. Also, avoid washing it in hot water. Instead, use warm water.
Buy Good Quality Washing Products
Ensure you buy a good quality conditioner and shampoo to wash your wig. Not all conditioners and shampoos work similarly. Make sure you contact us for a recommendation on the best products. Some conditioners and shampoos are specifically designed for wigs, and it’s a wise idea to purchase them.
Avoid Blow Drying Your Wigs
Whether human or synthetic hair, you should never blow dry your wig. Blow drying will damage and burn your wig. Wigs are best left to air dry after washing them. But if you dry with a towel, ensure the hairs don’t tangle.
Avoid Sleeping With Your Wig
Unlike natural hair, you can remove your wig as you sleep! Sleeping usually allows the bedding to strip the wig of its oil and tangle up the hair. This can make your wig look unkempt and dull. So, avoid sleeping with your wig to prolong its longevity.
Keep Wigs Safe
Taking care of your wigs isn’t just about styling, conditioning, or washing. It’s also about how to preserve it when you aren’t wearing it. Avoid placing your wig in dump areas. Instead, please put it in a dry box after combing it. We highly recommend trimming brittle ends from time to time.
