Tips For Human and Synthetic Hair Wig Care

If you’ve invested in a wig, you undoubtedly want to do all you can to keep it looking fresh and healthy. Wig care doesn’t have to be complicated, but it’s important to be diligent in order to keep your wig in top condition for as long as possible.

Many women decide to buy more than one wig so that they can switch up their hair color, length and style. We fully support this – wigs should be fun! It’s also a good idea to have at least one backup, to allow time for cleaning and drying. This varies based on the season and air quality, but in general, a wig should be washed after it has been worn about 10 times.

Human Hair Wig Care Tips

Brush with a wig brush. Then, fill the sink with cold water and add a small amount of mild shampoo. Turn the wig inside out, and soak it in the sink for about 5 minutes. Rinse twice, ensuring that all of the shampoo rinses out.

Then, apply conditioner, leave on for two minutes, and rinse again in cold water. Wrap the wig in a clean towel, then place on a wig stand and allow to dry thoroughly.

Synthetic Hair Wig Care Tips

Brush with a wig brush. Fill a sink with cold water and add 2 capfuls of a specially-formulated synthetic wig shampoo. Turn the wig inside out and soak for 5 minutes. Rinse in cold water, then apply 1-2 capfuls of synthetic wig conditioner. Leave on for two minutes and rinse clean.

Wrap the wig in a towel, then spray a revitalizing conditioner spray over the entire wig. Place on a wig stand and allow to dry thoroughly.

5 Benefits Of Synthetic Hair Wigs

If you’re wig shopping, you may be wondering about what type of wig is right for you.  At DK International, a hair loss salon just outside of Minneapolis, we see a lot medium_3869865330of people diagnosed with cancer requiring chemo treatments opt for a synthetic hair wig because of how this type of wig fits into the budget.  In this blog, I want to address the benefits of synthetic hair wigs.

If you’re about to go through chemotherapy treatments, you may have been told that your hair is going to fall out two weeks after your first treatment.  To receive this news while you’re already wrapping your mind around your diagnosis of cancer can be devastating and mind-boggling.  Once the information sinks in and you start to shop for wigs online, you may realize that there are many options to choose from.  Since your hair is likely to grow back after you’re finished with chemo treatments, you may only need a wig for about one year, which makes you lean towards synthetic hair wigs because of their lower sticker price.  Below are 5 benefits of choosing a synthetic hair wig:

  • Less expensive than natural hair wigs
  • Advances in technology produce synthetic fibers that are very similar to how natural hair looks and feels
  • Washing and exposure to humidity won’t change the style
  • Colors won’t fade in the sun
  • Lighter in weight, therefore more comfortable
