How to keep your Human hair wig and extensions looking and feeling good for longer.
Tried and tested products to ensure your human hair wigs and extensions always look their best.
We all love the look and feel of a brand new wig or a new set of extensions. However, we all know the challenge of keeping them looking and feeling that way for as long as possible.
Firstly it is important to understand that most of the hair on the market will have gone through some processing in order to achieve the array of beautiful colours we love. In order to give the hair that perfect shine and movement a coating of keratin is usually added to the hair.
This coating is what we need to protect in order for to maintain that perfect shine and movement. Here are a few tip and product suggestions to help do this.
1. Try not to wash your wig or extensions if you do not need to, remember this hair is not attached to your head so does not benefit from natural oils from your scalp that will help to keep it moisturized. When you do wash them make sure you use a sulfate free shampoo then condition and moisturize.
Products on the high street that I have loved to use over the years include my favourite
OGX Renewing + Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo. It can be found here at half price. https://amzn.to/2I7orbd
Another tried and tested ogx product is the OGX Renewing + Argan Oil of Morocco Extra Penetrating Oil. This is perfect for everyday use because it is light weight, non greasy and a little goes a long way. That can also be found here https://amzn.to/2TqGwGG
2. Use a heat protectant. The best way to protect your purchase is to use very little heat where possible. Just like your hair excessive use of heat will slowly damage the hair follicles. My favourite to use is the John Frieda Repair & Detox Care & Protect Spray with Avocado Oil and Green Tea, because it does more than just protect the hair from just heat. A twin pack can be found here https://amzn.to/2uHUNX7
it does what it says on the bottle.
3. Use a finishing serum to enhance the look of your hair. The best serum I have used this far has to be the John Frieda Frizz Ease Perfect Finish Polishing Serum for All Hair Types. It not only smells really good but can also double as a heat protectant. See here
All 4 of these products are perfect to use on any human hair products and will work just as well on your own biological hair.
