Synthetic wigs or hairpieces will give you plenty of enjoyable wear. Follow the instructions below to get the maximum life-span and performance from your wig or hairpiece. Your wig or hairpiece should last 3-6 months if you follow our wig care instructions below.


Washing Your Wig or Hairpiece
Synthetic wigs should be washed in cool water with special wig shampoo. Never use over the counter shampoo on synthetic wig fibre!  Only use wig shampoos and wig conditioners that are specially designed for synthetic fibre and will increase the longevity of your wig or hairpiece. (Using conditioner is highly recommended to reduce tangling.) Do not scrub the wig, just swish it from side to side and dunk it up and down. Wigs should be hung to dry. Once dry, spray sheen or detangler spray onto the wig and comb or brush depending on the type of wig you have (See Combing and Brushing Wigs below)

Setting & Styling Your Synthetic Wig or Hairpiece
Comb the hair, set in rollers with rolling papers and setting lotion.

Place your wig on a stand or styro foam head overnight or until completely dried. *This is recommended. Once dry, take out the rollers and style the wig as desired. Do not use hot tools like blow driers, curling irons, flat irons on your wig or hairpiece. These will melt the synthetic hair strands and ruin the wig or hairpiece! If wig hair gets frizzy, use wig sheen spray to smooth it out and then comb. You may also wash the hair and then set it with setting lotion for a great look. In order to remove tangles in the synthetic hair, use a detangler or wig sheen spray.


Combing and Brushing Your Wig or Hairpiece

Never brush your wig when it is wet. Use your fingers or spray. Do not use a brush on a curly wig or hairpiece as it will cause it to frizz. Instead purchase our specially designed wig brushes. These brushes do not pull or tangle the hair on your wig and hair piece.

Wig Storage
When wigs are not in use, they may be stored in a hair net, inside of a plastic bag or on a wig stand or mannequin head. A mannequin head is great for styling your wig after it has been washed and a great place to set it to dry. These items may also be purchased on our website for your use.
