To properly wash and clean your synthetic wig, one will need to keep the following items handy.
A wig brush is the first and foremost essential cleaning item required for preliminary cleaning and brushing of any wig. The next essential requirement for cleaning a wig is an exclusive wig shampoo and conditioner. A wig shampoo and specially formulated wig conditioner are effective in renewing the strength of the wig fibres and help them retain their texture without compromising on the strength of the synthetic fibres.
A wig can be considered ready for a wash and cleaning once it loses its shine and starts looking dull and lifeless. A wig that has been exposed to excessive artificial environment or is beginning to get entangled or messy requires a cleaning straight away. To begin with we gently brush the wigs with a wig brush into separate untangled strands.
1.Once clear and reasonably clean and clear of dust and dirt particles or any such pollutants, the wig is gently rinsed in a solution of wig shampoo in cold water and allowed to soak for a while.
2.After a while of soaking the wig is lifted to inspect it for any stubborn stains or dust particles that are still clinging on to it. In the event there are remnants of stains or unwanted particles still hanging onto the wig, they need to be manually brushed off the wig with a wig brush.
3.The recently cleaned wig is then rinsed again in cool water till it is completely clear and clean to one's satisfaction.
4.Proceed to condition your wig after finishing with washing the wig. Conditioner usage revitalizes the wig and replenishes it with much needed vigour and shine, thereby retaining the original style and shape of the wig. Immerse the wig in a solution of conditioner in cold water and keep it rinsed for a while.
5.Once the conditioning process is completed to one's satisfaction, the wig is then dried. The weight of water remaining in the strands of the wig can damage it beyond repair and enlarge its shape. Hence the wig needs to be hand dried with a towel gently soaking out any trace of water till the hair extensions are absolutely dry.
