HUMAN/SYNTHETIC BLEND WIG CARE

Use leave-in conditioner (we recommend Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisture Mist) a few times a week to keep wig conditioned and prevent damage of the synthetic fibers from friction and static electricity. Spray onto wig and comb through wig before wearing every few days. Focus especially on the back of the neck, as this area of the synthetic fibers tends to break down the fastest from the heat of your body and clothes.

Shampoo approx. every 30 wearings (once a month if worn every day)

Shampoo Instructions: 

*Always use cool or lukewarm water- hot water will cause the synthetic fibers to break down faster

  • Comb through wig with a wide tooth comb before washing. 

  • Hold front of cap with hand, rinse under faucet wetting entire wig with cool to lukewarm water. 

  • Do not let hair float in water or go near the drain. 

  • Lather shampoo in hand, then apply to wig and gently work it through the hair. 

  • Rinse and shampoo again. Rinse. 

  • Apply a small amount of conditioner to hand and work it through the hair. Rinse 

  • Gently squeeze excess water out of wig. 

  • Lay wig on a clean towel, roll it up and squeeze to absorb excess water. 

  • Generously spray leave-in conditioner and comb through wig with a wide-tooth comb, brushing wig in all different directions. 

  • Place on wig stand and let wig AIR-DRY 

  • Once wig is dry, use 2-3 more sprays of leave-in conditioner for added moisture. 

  • Apply Styling Aid if desired (do not use more than once a week to prevent product build up- once applied, styling aids can be reactivated with a light mist of water or leave-in conditioner)

 

Other Care Instructions:

  • Do not use any heat on your wig. This includes hair dryers, curling/flat irons, etc.

  • Stay away from other sources of extreme heat when wearing your wig- opening ovens, grills, heat lamps on buffets, etc.

  • Do not leave wig in a hot car or suitcase in extreme heat.

  • Do not sleep with your wig on.
