How To Extend The Life Of Human Hair Wigs?
For many wig wearers, the human hair lace wig is an investment; We spent enough money on a human hair wig that we want to make sure it lasts! We'll want to wear it again and again and look good. But at this point, many of us don't know what's going on. Over time, your wig will inevitably dry out, which is why we wanted to share our tips on how to take care of human wigs.
How Often Should You Wash a Human Hair Wig?
It depends on how often you wear your wig. We strongly recommend that people who wear wigs every day wash them on average twice a week.
Always remember that hot water can damage the texture of a wig and make it rough, so wash it in cold water.
613 wig requires more hydration than natural black hair due to their processing. it requires more moisture than natural black hair. When dyeing, always use purple shampoo to remove the yellow color. To avoid over-mixing, don't use it for too long.
Don't shower with a wig on. The heat of the water may damage the mesh and will decompose the hair's bond cap. If it's not convenient to take it off, a terry cloth-lined shower cap can help maintain style hair and block any water or moisture trapped in the hair.
You should always have two wigs on hand. That way, when you wash your wig, you always have something to wear and a backup in case something happens. Rotating between two wigs also helps to extend the life of both wigs.
Why Do Human Hair Wigs Become Dry?
With natural hair, your scalp produces a natural oil called sebum, which helps your hair retain its natural moisture. Natural oils are what human wigs inevitably lack, which causes them to dry out over time, even with the best human wig care.
If your human hair wig is starting to feel brittle and stiff, We recommend gently applying a natural oil, like Moroccan oil or coconut oil, all over your human hair wig. It's great for restoring moisture to your hair, giving your wig an incredible feel and smell.
Why There Is Shedding And Tangling？
Shedding is natural for human hair. If there is a small number of hairs loosening from your wigs/wefts, please do not be alarmed, it is very common.
There is another reason for the shedding: tangling. The shedding amount is affected by the tangles on the hair. So always brush your hair daily to avoid tangling.
When brushing the hair, please use the appropriate tools for different textures. For curly texture( deep wave, loose deep wave, water wave, Brazilian curly wig, kinky curly, etc), use your fingers( better not with combs) to comb sections of the hair with a light conditioner or Moroccan oil to detangle. start at the ends of your hair and gently work your way up.
One more reason that will cause the shedding: is lack of hydration. To avoid this, please shampoo and condition your hair appropriately to keep your hair moisturized. Using deep conditions and hair masks weekly can help add extra moisture to your hair.
At night, Never sleep with it. Please save the wig net if possible when you first open the wig as this will help you maintain the wig after use. You don’t want to leave it all tangled and full of knots from all the moving around at night.
Why Is My Lace Frontal/Closure Balding?
This issue is common when the lace is over-plucked. This may also be an issue when the conditioner is lathered onto the lace. These also can be caused by a hole in the lace frontal/closure.
When wearing a cheap lace front wig, please use a washcloth to wash your face to avoid forehead area lace lifting.
Why Did My Hair Lose Its Curly Pattern After Bleach?
Bleaching is a chemical process to the hair, so it can loosen a texture. We suggest you guys do a bleach bath to keep the original textures as best possible. Please be sure to avoid brushing the hair harshly and hot/warm water when doing highlights. Pushing down on the hair with bleach can cause the texture to loosen more than needed.
We suggest taking it to a professional. When you need to style your wig, it is better if you take it to a professional, many salons specialize in the care and styling of wigs. Remember that if you cut the hair on your wig, it won’t grow back, and also, won’t melt if you use too much heat!
Your Own Hair Is Important Too!
Always have your own hair clean and conditioned! When you put on your wig, always braid or pull your hair back somehow so that it doesn’t show, I recommend using a cap, it makes it easier to hide your hair, and to keep it clean
There are nursing books in our package. Please use them according to our suggestions. According to feedback from our customers, if used and cared for properly, our wigs can last one to two years.
