Many ladies love to switch up hairstyles every now and then but they don’t want to sit for long hours at the hair salon, so they buy wigs.

Comparing to synthetic wigs, human hair wigs last for a longer time and give a more natural look. If given more proper care, the human hair wigs can even last for 1-2 years.

How To Care For Your Human Hair Wig at Home
1. How To Wash Your Human Hair Wigs
Washing human hair wigs too often can cause more harm than good. If you only wear for one or two times every week, you should wash your human hair wig every 1-2 months. If it’s summer, you should wash it every half month. If you wear everyday, you should wash it every 1-2 weeks in summer and every 2 weeks in winter.
When you wash your human hair wig, be gentle and avoid broken, threading and knotting. Use professional shampoo.
2. Water Temperature
Use cold or mild water with proper shampoo.
3. Avoid High Temperature
Avoid placing your human hair wig close to high temperatures. Do not use a flat-iron or curler too often, it will make your wig look dry and cause severe damage.
Do not comb your wig immediately after washing, comb it after the hair is dry. When combing your human hair wig, use a special wide brush to comb your hair and make sure you start from the end all the way to top, this will prevent your hair wig from shedding.
5. Use Conditioner to Detangle Wig
If your wig is tangling after long use, do not pull the hair, rather spray some wig-specific non-oily conditioner, and comb it with a wide-toothed comb or your hand. Take your time while doing this to achieve the best results.
6. Do Not Use Hair Spray
Avoid using hairspray on your natural hair wig, to avoid making it oily and messy.
7. Store Your Wigs Properly
After cleaning, place your human hair wig in its original packaging to make it last longer and maintain its good look. You can also buy a wig stand to store your wig well.
