Proper cleaning products are very important when washing human hair wigs. Be sure to use products specially developed for washing real human hair wigs, which will make the cleaning more effective.

Whether it is a human hair wig or a synthetic wig, be careful to use the correct product when washing.


Washing Your Human Hair Wigs

1. Before starting to wash the wig, use your fingers or a comb to gently comb the real human hair wig. This is a very important step, as removing some of the tangles before the washing process can effectively reduce hair shedding. It is easy to damage the wig if you comb it with wet hair, so please do this while keeping the wig dry.

2. Soak the human hair wig in warm water. You can also rinse the wig directly under the tap if you can. When rinsing, please make sure the water flow is in the same direction as the human hair wig, this can avoid your wig from getting tangled.

3. After the human hair wig is wet, apply an appropriate amount of wig shampoo. Use your fingers to gently spread the shampoo evenly throughout the wig, starting at the top of the wig and working its way to the ends. During this process, be careful to stay away from the roots of your hair.

4. Rinse the shampoo off the wig until there is no residue left on the human hair wig. You can run your fingers lightly across the wig to facilitate this process.

5. After washing your wig, it's time for proper conditioning. Apply conditioner to the wig and repeat the above steps of applying and rinsing shampoo.

6. Gently squeeze the human hair wig with your hands to remove excess moisture easily. After this operation, you can use a soft towel to absorb the remaining moisture on the wig so that the wig no longer drips.

When not using a human hair wig, please store it on a wig stand or model, which will help maintain the original shape of the wig.

Direct sunlight will fade the color of the wig, so please avoid placing the wig where it will be exposed to strong sunlight.

Avoid exposure to chlorine and salt water, which can severely damage the wig and shorten the life of the human hair wig.

When styling human hair wigs, if using curling irons or hot tools, use them on low or medium heat.
