I adore synthetic wigs; I don't have much time and I'm not very crafty when it comes to combing my hair; The good thing about these wigs is that they require very little care and maintenance, it is very easy, but at the same time it is important to do it to prolong the life of these wigs and obtain the least possible wear.
Before putting on your wig, shake it and style it with a wide tooth comb, don't forget to spray it with a special synthetic hair conditioner to avoid static electricity and maintain the softness and flexibility of the fiber. Once on, you can place the strands and shape it with your fingers.
It is not necessary to wash it very often; The more you wash it, the sooner it will spoil, wearing a bamboo cap under your wig will help absorb oils from the scalp and keep the wig cap clean longer.
If you use it every day for more than 10 hours in a row, it is normal to wash it once a week and always with a special shampoo for synthetic wigs different from virgin hair wigs. Once washed, apply a balm to protect the fiber and then the conditioner. Unless the wig is heat resistant, do not use a hairdryer or iron, synthetic wigs have memory and recover their initial shape once dry without the need for styling.
There are sets for the maintenance of synthetic fiber that contain a shampoo, a repairing cream balm, 1 smoothing conditioning spray that prevents static electricity. If it is the first time that you use this type of wigs, it will be very useful to get one of these sets, you will have everything you need for its correct maintenance.
How to wash the synthetic wig:
