A there’s no way I would understand if you messed up expensive wig caps like that. Here are some of the tips to maintain them.

1. Before you wash the hair comb it

Use a wide toothed comb to get all the tangles out before you wash it so you don’t mess up the hair. You can also run your fingers through the strands and unravel knots if there are any.

2. The Washing Process

Place the wig under a tap and after a little while, close it and remove the excess water using your fingers. Apply shampoo to your hands and rub it on the wig. Don’t wash the wig as you would hand wash clothes but just apply the shampoo from the top to the ends. Rinse out the shampoo using cool water.

Apply your conditioner to the ends of the hair (not the roots) and gently comb through the hair using a wide toothed comb. Let the conditioner work it’s way into the hair for about 5 minutes (follow the instructions on the bottle). Once you have detangled your wig, thoroughly rinse the conditioner from it using cool running water.

3. Drying

Don’t wring the wet hair like you would to your wet clothes. Lightly squeeze all the excess water and use a towel to dab on the little water left. Leave it on a stand to air dry. Avoid using a blow dryer and brushing the hair until the wig is completely dry.

4. Keep it on a wig stand

If you aren’t wearing the wig, keep it on a stand so it maintains its structure.

5. Avoid wearing them to bed

To avoid hair loss, breakage and matting, don’t wear your wig to bed.

6. Preserve the colour and texture of your wig by avoiding contact with chlorinated water, seawater and hot water.

Remember that the more careful and gentle you are to human hair wigs, the longer it will last.
