HUMAN HAIR WIG MAINTENANCE

Good maintenance of your wig is essential. This is because how you care for your wig determines how long it will last.

  1. Use silicon serum / spray in your hair to keep it silky, shiny, and tangle free. But remember that you only need a pea-sized amount – a little goes a long way. If you’re using a spray, hold the bottle 20cm away from the hair and spray lightly. Too much serum can build up on the hair, making it tangle and appear dull. So, the more frequently you apply serum, the more you’ll need to wash your hair.
  2. Brush your wig / weave twice a day, starting at the tips. When brushing, hold your hair in the middle. Gently and slowly brush out the tangles at the ends, working your way up to the top of your head. Don’t brush vigorously as this will cause the hair to shed (and curly hair to lose its curl). A detangling brush or wide-toothed comb may be used to brush out severe tangles.
  3. Wash your hair at least once a week. But make sure you’ve brushed out all the tangles beforehand. How often you wash your hair will depend on things like air quality and humidity.
  4. Never sleep with wet or damp hair.
  5. We recommend air drying your hair. Gently pat your hair with a dry towel and leave it to stand. If you use a blow dryer, always use a medium heat setting.
  6. Spray leave-in conditioner and brush gently. Don’t tug on the hair as it may loosen the weft and cause shedding.
  7. Deep condition the hair regularly to maintain its optimal condition. If heating tools are used frequently, deep condition at least once a month. If the hair has been coloured or chemically treated, increase this to twice a month.
  8. The best way to maintain the health of your wig is to treat it like your own hair. Natural oils, deep treatment and cremes are some of the best ways to keep it from becoming dry or brittle.
  9. Store your wig on a mannequin or wig stand when not in use.

CURLY HAIR HI TEMP / SYNTHETIC WIGS MAINTENANCE

Synthetic fibres tangle and frizz (especially curly wigs) more easily than real hair does. This means that more care and attention is needed. The following practical solutions can help you calm and manage synthetic fibres on a regular basis:

  1. Don’t brush wigs with a tight curl. Instead, use your fingers to gently remove tangles. Brush only when wet, with a Denman brush or a wide-toothed comb. You can use a large-toothed comb when hair is dry, but don’t comb it more than twice a day – too much combing causes curly wigs to shed and frizz.
  2. Follow the washing instructions. For curly wigs, take care not to scrunch the hair in the water.
  3. We recommend air drying your curly wig on a mannequin or wig stand. This will allow the set curl pattern to return.
  4. Never use products with mineral oils on your curly wig. A water-based spray-on moisturiser is best. You can also make your own moisturising spray by mixing one third glycerin (an ingredient that draws moisture into your hair) and two-thirds water.

BRAZILIAN / PERUVIAN WEAVE MAINTENANCE

Good maintenance of your hair is essential - it determines how long it will last. Remy hair and chemically stripped hair will tangle slightly less than non-Remy hair, but it is important to note that all hair will tangle to some degree. Here’s how to manage your Brazilian or Peruvian weave:

  1. Brush your hair twice a day, starting at the tips. When brushing, hold your hair in the middle. Gently and slowly brush out the tangles at the ends, working your way up to the top of your head. Don’t brush vigorously as this will cause the hair to shed (and curly hair to lose its curl). A detangling brush or wide-toothed comb may be used to brush out severe tangles.
  2. Always brush your hair before washing it.
  3. Gently wash your hair in warm water with sulphate-free shampoo, taking care not to scrunch the hair as this will cause tangling. If you have used a lot of product on your hair and it’s not attached to your head, leave it to soak for 10 minutes.
  4. Rinse your hair with warm water.
  5. Apply sulphate-free conditioner, remembering not to scrunch the hair.
  6. Rinse the conditioner out thoroughly under warm water.
  7. We recommend air drying your hair. Gently pat your hair with a dry towel and leave it to stand. If you use a blow dryer, always use a medium heat setting.
  8. Spray leave-in conditioner and brush gently. Don’t tug on the hair as it may loosen the weft and cause shedding.
  9. Deep condition the hair regularly to maintain its optimal condition. If heating tools are used frequently, do this at least once a month. If the hair has been coloured or chemically treated, increase this to at least twice a month.
  10. The best way to maintain the health of your weave is to treat it like your own hair. Natural oils, deep treatment and cremes are some of the best ways to keep it from becoming dry or brittle.
