How to wash your wig properly

Washing Your  Lace Wig

  • Rinse with cool to lukewarm water. (Water should be at room temperature or slightly warmer.)
  • Apply a very small drop of high-quality mild shampoo to the wet hair (avoid the scalp area). Do NOT rub the hair or scalp as you would with your own.
  • Comb the shampoo through the hair from top to bottom using gentle downward strokes one section at a time. Do not scrub the hair.
  • Gently apply some of the soapy water to the inside of the cap. Do not scrub the cap.
  • Rinse again with cool to lukewarm water from the top down and from the inside of the cap to remove excess shampoo.
  • Gently blot hair with a towel.
  • You may now apply some conditioner to the damp hair. Avoid the scalp area as the conditioner can loosen the knots.
  • Rinse away some of the conditioners with cool to lukewarm water only from the inside of the cap allowing a small amount to remain in the hair.

 Conditioning Your Wig

  • While the hair is still wet, spread a small amount of conditioner into the palm of your hands and work evenly into the hair.
  • Avoid application of conditioner to the base of the wig as it can loosen the knots on the cap, causing hair loss to your hair piece.
  • Leave the conditioner in the hair for 3-5 minutes.  While the hair is wet and saturated with your wig conditioner, very gently detangle the wig, starting at the tips of the hair and working your way up.
  • Your fingertips are the most gentle, but a wide toothed wig comb can also be gently used.
  • Thoroughly rinse the conditioner from the hair under cool running water.
  • Gently squeeze excess water from the wig (do not rub or wring) and lightly blot hair with a towel (do not twist or wring). 

Drying Your Wig

  • Gently blot hair with a towel.
  • Allow the wig to air dry naturally. (Do not dry your wig with a blow dryer. It can dry out and damage the hair and multi-skin top.)
  • To restyle your human hair wig, you may use a blow dryer, curling iron or flat iron on low heat settings only or use electric rollers on a medium setting.
