How do you wash a fibre wig?

Washing your Fibre Wig

  1. Prior to washing, remove all knots and tangles paying particular attention to the nape section.

  2. Fill a hand bowl or sink with tepid water and a little wig shampoo and very gently agitate your wig or hairpiece back and forth in the water.

  3. Gently rinse off the shampoo leaving no traces of it in the wig or hairpiece. Gently smooth through some conditioner to help condition the fibre.

  4. Thoroughly rinse the conditioner out.

  5. Pat gently on a towel to remove excess water. Never rub.

  6. Place wig on a Polyhead or Collapsible Wig Stand to dry naturally.

  7. When completely dry, spray with a leave in conditioner and style accordingly.

  8. For extra hold, apply some Holding Spray sparingly on piece.

  9. If worn daily, wash every 10 - 14 days otherwise once a month is ok.

How do i prolong the life of my fibre wig?

For best results with your Fibre Wig

We recommend to get the most out of your fibre wig and to prolong the life of it you spray the fibre hair lightly with a leave in conditioner, gently remove any knots and tangles with your fingers before and after wearing.

Scrunched permed styles must never be brushed - detangle using your fingers or a wide tooth afro comb.

IMPORTANT

  • Never use intense heat on your fibre wig, such as Hairdryers, Ceramic Irons, Curling Tongs - This WILL burn the fibres!

  • Avoid opening ovens and standing under overhead heaters whilst wearing your fibre wig!

  • Never wash in hot water!

  • The continual wearing of a fibre wig will result in Friction Frizz especially if your wig is collar length or longer.

  • Fibre wigs need to be replaced more frequently than human hair. The expected lifespan for a short fibre wig is 4-6 months, a mid length wig is between 3-4 months and a long wig is 2-3 months. Please note, these are approximate time frames and are based on every day wear.

  • Fibre hair wigs can NEVER be coloured or bleached.

Washing your Human Hair wig

  1. Prior to washing, remove all knots and tangles paying particular attention to the nape area.

  2. Fill a hand bowl or sink with tepid water. Apply a little sulphate free shampoo evenly and gently agitate the hair into a lather. Repeat twice. Always apply products from the root to tip.

  3. Rinse the wig using tepid water until all traces of shampoo are removed. Never rinse the hair under a high pressured tap.

  4. Squeeze the excess water off the wig.

  5. Gently smooth through some Hydrading conditioner evenly throughout. Work the conditioner into the hair and comb through carefully. Optional - Apply a mask treatment for that extra softness.

  6. Thoroughly rinse the conditioner out.

  7. Place the wig on a Polyhead or Collapsible Wig Stand and brush through ready for styling or to dry naturally. (Take great care at this stage to avoid running the teeth of a comb or brush through the knotted roots or foundation as the knots will have absorbed water, this expands and becomes looser when wet. This will revert when the hair becomes dry.)
