PROPER CARE FOR YOUR HUMAN HAIR WIG THAT YOU NEVER KNEW: MY HAIR MY CROWN pt2


In the last episode of My Hair My Crown, I talked on how to keep natural hair and still look healthy and beautiful. But those who want to go with wig for whatever reason the proper care of your wig is very important as well so as to keep it looking new. Maintaining your human hair wig by washing is not difficult; it just requires attention and gentle care.  It is important to properly care for your human hair wig in order to achieve maximum lifespan and the best appearance. Wigs are here to stay and taking care of them should be taken seriously because they need as much maintenance as your natural hair. This guide will cover how to properly wash and condition your human hair wig as well as other pointers to maintaining your wig.

WIG WASHING
You should consider washing your wig around the 8-14th time you wear it. Note that each time your hairpiece is washed, the lifespan of your wig is shortened. For this reason, the wig should not be washed more than is necessary. Using as few styling products as possible on your wig will allow you to wash it less often and extend its life.

HOW TO WASH YOUR WIG
Before washing your wig, gently comb it out, removing all tangles. Start at the tips of the hair and work your way up to the base of the cap. Make sure that you are using brushes only made for human hair. For stubborn tangles, apply spray leave In conditioner it can help loosen them.
Run cold water over the wig from the base to tip. Gently squeeze to remove excess water.
 Apply shampoo in your palm and run through the wig from the base to the tip. You'll need to make sure that the shampoo is lathered in evenly throughout the whole wig. Using cool water, gently rinse all shampoo from the hair, allowing the water to flow over the hair from the base to the tips. Dont rub or twist.

Gently rinse until all shampoo has been removed. Using the same method, apply conditioner on your wig. Leave the conditioner in the hair for 3-5 minutes. While the wig is saturated with your wig conditioner, very gently detangle the wig, starting at the tips of the hair and working your way up. Your fingertips are the most gentle, but a wide toothed wig comb can also be gently used. Rinse your wig and gently dry with a towel lightly and allow it to air dry.

HUMAN HAIR WIG CARE TIPS
1. Always wear wig caps underneath your wig.Wearing a wig cap underneath will extend the lifespan     of your wig. The cap will help absorb scalp oils, keeping them away from the base of the cap.
2. Direct sunlight will fade the hair so avoid storing your wig where it will be exposed to light.
3. Do not wear your hairpiece while sleeping. It may result in hair loss, breakage and dryness.
4. Avoid contact with chlorinated water, sea water and hot water to avoid damage to your wig.
