How to Look After Your Wigs

The great news is that, we offer after sales services to our clients. So after wear, all you need to do is return it for a treatment and adjustment where needed.

However if you do not have that facility available; you should always air dry your wigs after wear. And then lay them back in their wig boxes.

Place them on mannequins or hold them in your hand to wash with a little shampoo and loads of conditioner whilst brushing out at the same time to ensure hair doesn’t tangle during wash.


The Wig No-Nos

Do not immerse your entire wig in a bucket and say you’re “soaking” it in to remove dirt and grime like you would do clothes.

Ensure your wig base is fully dried before you wear it on your head

Always wear a wig base (net) under you wigs to protect your natural hair from breaking

Do not brush your wig from the roots to the tips; you will pull out (shed) your closures and eventually tear out your wig net.

Do not ‘over- tweeze ‘your frontal or closures on your wigs because after a while of combing, the hair on them will pull out by themselves and cause balding patches on your closures and frontals which is very unattractive.

Finally, Your curly hair wig is like a garden, it needs water to shine and look great so don’t starve it because it will punish you back by making you look very messy and unattractive.


Your Top Tips

Just because it’s a wig doesn’t mean it has to look like one!

Always ensure your wig is styled every week so it looks great and not frumpy on your head

Don’t lay the wig more than one inch behind your hair line as the break sometimes can make it look unnatural, at the same time, don’t lay it across your hair line as it creates harsh edges and a less natural finish. Your wigmakers should advise you how to wear your wig for the best effect.

You can use just mouse and your old toothbrush to create great edges and scarf it for a few minutes for a great edge lay.

No mannequin stand? Just hang the wig string on your door or wardrobe handle. Just make sure it doesn’t create a whole mess in your room. Alternatively you can get a wig stand which will cost you very little but give great benefits for your wig.

Use your make up on the edges of your lace closure or frontal to capture your skin facial tone and achieve consistency and kill harsh lines.

By all means brush your hair; it will not brush itself 😊 and always brush from tips to roots to detangle easily.
