Wig Maintenance

 

Wig Maintenance


It is important to care for your human hair wig properly in order to maximise its lifespan and maintain its beauty.

Before washing the wig gently comb it out to remove all tangles. Always start at the tips of the hair and work your way to the base of the cap. Also, make sure you use a comb designed for wigs.

At Serenity Hair Boutique we recommend that you start by getting the wig wet under the faucet from your sink (short hair). If the wig is long hair, we recommend holding the wig under the faucet or shower so the hair does not get tangled in a bowl or basin. Let the water flow over the hair from the base to the tips until it is all wet. Gently squeeze (do not wring or twist) to remove excess water.

Apply a small amount of wig shampoo to your hand and apply evenly over the hairpiece. Using cool water, rinse all shampoo from hair gently, allowing the water to flow over the hair again from the base to the tips. Do not rub, wring, or twist. Rinse until the shampoo has been removed. Lightly squeeze excess water (do not rub, wring or twist) and blot hair gently with a towel before conditioning.

 

Conditioning


While the hair is still wet add a small amount of human hair wig conditioner to the palm of your hand and work it into the wig. Be careful not to apply to the base of the wig as this could loosen the knots on the cap causing hair loss.

Leave the conditioner in the hair for 3-5 minutes. Use this time while the hair is still wet with conditioner to detangle the wig. Start at the tip of the hair and work upwards. Your fingertips are suitable for this operation, but a wide tooth wig comb can also be used.

Be gentle not to stretch the hair. Thoroughly rinse the conditioner from the hair under cool running water. Squeeze the excess water from the wig and then lightly blot hair with a towel.

After the procedure has been completed you can add a small amount of argan oil treatment throughout the hair to add vibrancy, moisture and protection to the hair.

 

Styling


Human hair wigs are incredibly versatile and can be styled, curled and cut to match your taste and preferences. To straighten, simply take a 1 inch section at the roots and run a flat iron through to the ends. To curl, all you need to do is wrap the hair around a curling iron, hold for around 10 seconds, then release.
