How to Care for Your Synthetic Wig
Wash – Fill the sink with cool water, add shampoo
then agitate with hand to create soapy water. Dip wig in and out three
or four times. Wash your wig at least every other week; weekly when wig
styling sprays are used.
Rinse – Hold your wig under the faucet and let water
run through the mesh base. Rinsing in this direction will prevent the
hair from tangling inside the mesh base.
Dry – Roll the wig in a towel and blot dry. Remove
and shake gently. Spray with setting lotion, turn inside out and allow
to dry on a wig stand. When completely dry on wig stand, arrange curl
pattern with your fingers.
Condition – You may condition your wig every other
time you shampoo, and use only a conditioner specially formulated for
wigs. First wash and rinse your wig. Place conditioner in cool water and
agitate with your hand. Dip wig in and out three or four times. Then
- Only use water soluble hair spray specially formulated for
wigs—lacquer sprays will coat the wig. Use wig sheen when needed to

- To preserve the styling, we suggest you not wear your wig while sleeping.
Avoid direct heat or steam from stove, oven or fire. Consider wearing a turban while cooking to avoid singeing the wig.
When not wearing your wig, place it on a wire stand so the shape will
stay intact. The wire stand also allows the wig to air out.
