Is it normal for my wig to knot?
Absolutely! Especially in the winter. The friction of the coat combined with heating and other winter elements are rough on the wig. For most wigs, knotting occurs at the inside rows.
How do you deal with the knotting?
- Brush the wig out after each wear in the direction of tips of hair to root. Work your way up.
- Use some detangling spray if necessary
- Put the hair in a ponytail when wearing a coat
When is knotting considered a manufacturing defect?
- If the wig knots like a bird’s nest, when you are not wearing a coat
- If it takes you longer than 15 minutes to brush out the knots
- If the knots are not just isolated to the hair by the nape
Most reputable companies will stand behind their product and treat the wig for knotting.
Important information about knotting:
For some reason that is not completely comprehensible, high-end wigs, the ones made from European Human hair, will normally knot in the first 3-6 months of wear. But once you break into the wig, and after a couple of washes, you will notice significant improvement in the knotting. Whereas wigs made from inferior hair quality won’t knot in the beginning but after a couple of washes it will turn into one complete matted knot that you can’t brush through.
You should also note that the longer the wig, the more it will knot.

If you are looking to purchase a short, tapered European Human Hair wig, you should buy one that comes already short. This way, the hair will conform to the neck.
The price of high quality European has risen dramatically over the years. Shevy is one of the only wig companies that doesn’t combine european human hair with oriental human hair. When companies do that, they are able to reduce the price significantly on wigs, but the low quality is evident after only 6 months of wear.
Use 1/2 inch iron. Divide hair into 1 inch sections and curl. Spray when you’re done, wait a few minutes and loosen curls with your hands. To have the most natural curls you need a super high quality wig.
