How to wash a European Human Hair Wig

December 27, 2018

1) Brush out all knots from the wig. If the wig is exceptionally tangled, use detangling spray and brush from the tips to the roots. Brushing from the roots to the tips can cause hair breakage.
2) Secure the wig on a Styrofoam head with T-pins (not on multi) and rinse under lukewarm water. Washing a wig under the sink without a head can cause hair to come through the net, pockets in the scalp, and the cap to stretch.
3) Use a high quality shampoo such as Kerasilk by Goldwell, kersatase. Shampoo the wig under lukewarm water, thoroughly stroking your hands in a downward motion. Scrunching the hair can cause the wig to become totally matted by the roots, which is irreparable.
4) Rinse the shampoo under lukewarm water in same downward fashion.
5) Apply high quality conditioner such as kerastase, Kerasilk by Goldwell or Morrocan Oil. Apply conditioner 5 inches away from roots. Applying the conditioner close to the roots can cause the knots to loosen and hair to fall out. Using inferior quality conditioner can cause dryness.
6) Let the conditioner sit in hair for 30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.
7) Remove from head. Gently hand wash the net with water and a little shampoo. Don’t place net directly under faucet.
8) Towel dry. Blow dry net. Replace wig on a dry Styrofoam net and gently brush into desired style. Brushing hard when hair is wet can cause the knots to loosen and hair to fall out.
9) Style as desired. If hair is not positioned straight on heating elements, the hair can split, frizz and burn.
