Washing a wig at home mistake – Washing it without detangling before
When washing a wig, whether it’s a real human hair wig or synthetic one, you must untangle it before you wash it. Just use a comb, brush gently from top to bottom, remove tangles first and wash your wig later. So that your wig still maintains its quality as well as prolongs its life.
Don’t scrub your wig too much
When washing your wig, use your fingers in a gentle way, do not use your nails. When using nails or improper washing methods such as strongly scrubbing, your wig will be damaged quickly. The stronger you impact your wig, the faster it will be damaged. Therefore, be gentle when using and washing it.
Washing a wig at home mistake – Using hot water to wash
This mistake may surprise you, but washing your hair wig with hot water may cause negative effects. Hot water will create a bad effect on your hairpiece and the wig can’t bear being washed under hot water. So, don’t forget it!
Using improper hair products to wash
The most common mistake when washing a wig at home is using regular shampoos and conditioners. Those are not the special product for wigs, so they may contain unsuitable chemicals for your wigs. Therefore, special hair products which provide nutrition for your wig should be used so as not to damage it.
Do not put the conditioner on the lace cap
When washing hair, we often apply shampoos and conditioners step by step. However, washing your wig needs more attention. If you put the conditioner on a lace cap, your hair will go to the “multi area”. Then, a “pillow” will be created in the scalp and a bump will appear. The result is you will be uncomfortable with that bump.
Washing a wig at home – Do not brush aggressively
When brushing your wigs before and after washing it, you should be careful. As it’s not your real hair so it can’t grow back. Brush it gently, from the bottom to the top and untangle the knots slowly whenever being stuck.
Washing a wig at home – Do not absorb the water by wrapping wig in a towel
When washing a wig, we often use a towel to wrap it to make it dry faster. However, wrapping a wig in a towel can result in wefts and damage it in the long-term. So, let it dry naturally to prevent negative impact on your wig.
