TOP > How to handle a wig
Remove dust by brushing the wig, then store it in a wig-storage net in its styled state.
Store it somewhere cool and dry.
Be sure not to store long wigs in a folded state for long periods of time.
With a static-control brush, brush the wig gently from the neck to the top of the wig.
If your brush gets tangled, use a spray and gently remove it without pulling hard.
Conditioner is also effective for heat-resistant-fiber wigs.
For curled wigs, gently brush each curl individually to prevent the curls from unraveling.
For heat-resistant-fiber wigs, you can use a brush and a blow dryer or a straight iron to untangle them.
Also, trimming the wig allows for long term use. (This is okay for silky heat-resistant wigs and modlon wigs.)
The trick is to use the scissors vertically. (Cut only the tangled area slowly while being careful not to cut too much.)
Wigs can also be thinned using thinning scissors. Once you thin it, though, it's permanent, so please be careful.
After removing any tangles or dust, place your wig in cool or tepid water mixed with shampoo and wash your wig by pressing it.
Rubbing your wig while washing it can result in tangles, so please wash it by gently pushing on it only.
Rinse your wig thoroughly. Caution: Don't wash it in water as hot as bath water.
The wig’s curls may unravel. Washing with cool water is best.
To use conditioner on the wig, follow the same method and gently wash it by pressing it.
After washing the wig, gently towel it dry, then place it in a shaded area to air dry.
It is basically okay to wash these wigs in the same way as heat-resistant-fiber wigs, but because the fiber quality is different, each time a wig is washed its fibers will degrade. It is best not to wash these wigs very often.
Apply spray or wax evenly by first applying it to your hand, then volumize the wig using a blow dryer or other device.
Sprays and waxes can be used on either fiber type, but because heat-resistant-fiber wigs degrade less with washing, they are better for styling.
Please look at this page for details on styling your wig.
Any kind of style is possible depending on how much the wig is brushed.
In addition to curling irons, regular clothing irons can also be used on heat-resistant-fiber wigs.
Curly wigs can be straightened by placing them on an ironing board, spraying them with plenty of water, and ironing them.
