Step by Step Guide to Wash a Wig
1、Solve the tangle hair
Before you start washing your hair, gently remove the wig with your fingers or a comb or wig comb. This is an important step as it helps to get rid of any annoying knots or tangles before the washing process begins. You may want to brush your hair when you shampoo or condition it, but brushing it wet can damage the strands, so be sure to do that first!
- 2、Dip your wig
Start by placing your wig under warm water. It's easy to do this under the faucet of the sink and then you can keep all the necessary products with you. When shampooing the wig, make sure the water flows in the same direction as the hair on the wig, as this will help keep the hair from tangling during the process. Wash your hair with a wig Once your wig has been soaked, apply a generous amount of wig shampoo to the top of your hair. Gently distribute the shampoo over the entire wig using your fingers, starting at the top of the wig and smoothing the product to the ends.
- 3、Wash off shampoo
Gently rinse the shampoo off the wig by running the hair down under the tap, making sure the water runs in the same direction as the hair. Running water tends to remove most of the product, but you can encourage the process by gently running your fingers through the wig while under the faucet.
4、clean the wig cap
If there is any buildup or lumps on the wig cap, gently clean the wig cap with a small brush or toothbrush, taking care not to stretch or tear the wig cap.
5、Wash your wig again
When your wig has finished soaking and looks clean, rinse it thoroughly. Be gentle when rinsing and never twist or wring your wig. Drain or pour soapy water and rinse the bowl.
6、Condition of your wig
Fill your sink or bowl with clean, warm water. Add a small amount of conditioner, about a tablespoon, to the water and stir well to combine with the water. Some conditioners may have instructions on how much product to use.
. Dip the wig into the water/conditioner mixture and gently rub the mixture into the wig strands with your fingers.
. Rinse the wig thoroughly with cold water. Again, be gentle and do not twist or twist your wig.
. Apply a small amount of hair conditioner, such as jojoba oil, to the wig to moisturize and reduce frizz. ·
7 、 Take care of your own hair if you wear a wig every day.
Just because wearing a wig covers your real hair doesn't mean you should neglect your own hair. Keeping your hair and scalp clean means your wig will stay cleaner for longer. If you have dry hair, moisturize your hair. It won't affect your wig, but it will keep your hair healthy.
