Step-by-Step Wig Washing


Detangling Drama, Be Gone:


Kick things off by lovingly detangling your wig. Grab your trusty wide-tooth comb or a wig brush, and gently free those knots, starting from the tips and moving to the roots.


Bath Time for Your Wig:


  • Cool Waters: Begin by filling your basin with cool or lukewarm water – hot water is the villain in this story, as it can harm those delicate wig fibres.

  • Special Suds: Introduce a little wig shampoo into the mix, one that's made for synthetic strands to keep the magic intact.

  • Gentle Swirls: Submerge your wig in its bath and swish it softly, like a gentle dance in the water, for about a minute. No rubbing or twisting – we treat our wigs like royalty.

  • Soaking Serenity: Let it soak for 5-10 minutes. Think of it as a spa moment for your wig to absorb all the care.

  • Cool Rinse: Under cool running water, rinse away the shampoo. Be thorough, like you're washing away all your wig's worries. Rinse well, not once, not twice, but a few really good times.

  • Conditioner Charm: If you choose, lavish your wig with a synthetic-friendly conditioner post-shampoo, then rinse out thoroughly, like a refreshing spring rain.

  • Towel Tango: Blot your wig gently with a towel – no wringing or twisting. Think of it as a soft hug to remove the excess water.

  • Air Dry Elegance: Set your wig on a stand and let it air dry completely. Say no to blow dryers; let's keep it natural and safe.


Styling Soirée:


  • Brushing Beauty: Once dry, it's time for the grand finale of brushing and styling. Your wig is your canvas, and you're the artist.

  • Heat Styling Haute Couture: If you must use heat, treat your wig to a light mist of water first, and set your tools no higher than 360°F. Think of it as giving your wig a protective shield.

  • Hot Comb Highlight: A hot comb can glide through dry fibres – remember, moderation is chic.

Caring for your synthetic wig is as easy as wearing it with confidence. With these golden rules, your wig will continue to shine, keeping its lustre and shape for all your grand entrances. Remember, a cherished wig stays with you through all your style adventures!
