Looking after your wig well doesn't just keep your hair looking fabulous, it keeps your hair looking fabulous for longer. Lace frontal and lace closure wigs are designed and made specifically for you. From stitching construction to cutting and colouring these wigs are personalised to your requirements and when looked after properly should last you for years.
Using 100% human hair allows us to treat the wig as if it were our own hair. We can colour, cut and style as necessary. However, like our own hair, over using these systems can damage our hair. It is not advised to recolour your wig after you receive it. Silver toning shampoos can be used to keep cooler blondes cool but should you wish to make alterations to your colour we advise to return it to us to alter or purchase an alternative coloured wig and add to your collection!
To heat or not to heat? The most damage can be caused by styling with heated appliances. Wigs do not produce natural oils like our scalps do meaning the hair doesn't get that natural cleanse and protect and therefore can dry out quicker than our own. It is important to use lower heat settings where possible or even setting to achieve desired styles. Heat protection sprays, cooler hair dryer settings post shampoo and treating at the wash basin will also help keep your wig soft, shiny and split free.
Yes you can shampoo your wig. This may be needed from time to time to keep your hair looking and feeling fresh, especially if you have used sprays or products to create fabulous styles! For the best results and longevity always use professional shampoo, conditioner and products. We highly recommend INsight Professional. INsight Professional shampoos are formulated without SLS and SLES (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate), which are considered aggressive and potentially irritating surfactants. As a replacement, they use a more gentle cleansing agent, derived from Coconut. INsight Professional are a 100% vegan and cruelty free brand that uses recycled packaging. Looking good AND doing good... Before you start, ensure your wig is fully brushed out and detangled prior to shampooing to reduce any chance of tangling at the wash basin/sink/bath. The recommended way to shampoo is to fill your basin, bath or sink with cool/tepid water and submerge your wig into it. Remove your wig and scrunch shampoo into the hair to create a lather (do not rub to avoid tangles) Submerge back into the water to rinse and then squeeze out any excess water before applying your conditioner. Leave your conditioner for a couple of minutes before rinsing again then gently squeeze your hair dry using a towel, avoid any rubbing, to keep your locks beautiful. Air dry your hair on a wig stand or blow dry as advised in the heat section above.
