What you’ll Need?

  1. Folding Wig Stand
  2. Wide tooth Comb
  3. Human hair shampoo
  4. Human hair conditioner
  5. Towel

Step 1: Detangle 

Before you wash, make sure you carefully detangle the hair using a wide tooth comb. Start from ends and work toward the root to decrease shedding.

Step 2: Rinse

Use lukewarm water and rinse from roots to ends. Do not soak or rub as this can lead to tangling.
Tip: If your wig is curly, try leaving the hairnet on.

Step 3: Shampoo

Loosen shampoo in your hands and work through the hair. Distribute a small amount of shampoo evenly throughout the hair.
Tip: Use circular motions to clean the cap.

Step 4: Condition Human Hair

Leave in for a few minutes before rinsing. Do NOT apply conditioner to the root. By applying conditioner to the roots, the product will undo the knots in the cap and cause loss of fiber.
Tip: If dry or damaged, use a deep conditioner.

Step 5: Rinse

Let lukewarm water flow in the same direction of the hair to avoid tangling. Squeeze and press the hair; do NOT wring.
Tip: Towel blot to remove excess water.

Step 6: Dry Human Hair

Blow dry or air dry about 80% and then round brush until smooth.

How Often To Wash Your Human Hair Wig

How often to wash my human hair wig?

It is recommended to wash your human hair wig every 7-14 days of wear. Each time your hairpiece is washed, the lifespan of your wig is shortened. For this reason, the wig should not be washed more than is necessary. Using as few styling products as possible on your wig will allow you to wash it less often and extend its life. Wearing a wig cap underneath will also extend the life of your wig. The wig cap will help absorb scalp oils, keeping them away from the base of the cap.
