Wig Care and Styling

Let's get down to basics. It all begins with the type of hair... there are three different types of hair used in wigs - human hair, synthetic hair and heat friendly synthetic fiber.. There are different methods and products for maintaining wigs depending on the type of hair used.

Clean, Condition & Style

Synthetic hair and human hair each have special needs in order to maintain their optimal look and feel. Wigs made from human hair or synthetic hair endure intense chemical processing during production. Prolonging that supple movement is crucial to a natural look and is a must! To keep your wearable hair in tip top shape, you must use specially formulated hair care product designed to accommodate whichever hair fiber you are wearing or working with. There is no need to cleanse daily, but there are other steps necessary before or after each wear. The simple tips and techniques we have outlined here can make all the difference!

One of the greatest benefits of synthetic wigs is that they require very little maintenance and do not have to be restyled after every wash. With synthetic hair you’ll want to steer clear of intense heat - even a short burst of heat from an oven can cause irreparable hair fiber damage. If style versatility or daily styling routine is something you enjoy, human hair or heat friendly synthetic hair is the way to go.

The key to making your wig look great and last longer, is proper care. Love your hair and it will love you back! We have put together a few pages on caring and styling for the 3 different types of hair.
