Wigs FAQ

How to wash and style a human hair wig

How often do I clean my wig?

Depending on your daily activity and lifestyle, a minimum of once a week is recommended. If worn daily for 10 to 12 hours a day, we would suggest you wash it twice a week. But, there are factors that could change this, depending on the individual wearer, the type of styling products used or the environment in which the wig or hairpiece is worn. You, personally, will be the judge of when it needs to be cleaned. It will begin to feel oily, matte, and easy to tangle.

What type of styling tools can I use on my wigs?

Depending on the type of hairpiece or wig you own, it is advisable to lightly pick or brush the ends to soften the appearance each time you wear it. On long pieces, always start from the ends.
• Brushes that have single teeth from the base and have bristles that can flex or bend as they pass through the hair; this will lessen any possible damage.
• Hair picks are also excellent for light touch-ups because they pass through the fiber with minimum resistance or pulling.
• Combs with bigger spaces rather than close-together teeth.

How do I store my wig?

The best way to store your wig is on a Wire Wig Stand or Wig Perch Wig Stand. This will keep your wig fresher and maintain its style between wearings. Keep your wig in a clean place, away from dust, sources of high heat and excessive humidity. Never enclose in a box or plastic bag (except while traveling).

What about cutting, re-setting, and coloring my wig or hairpiece?

If you are in the Los Angeles or San Diego areas please call to schedule a consultation at one of our regional offices. By appointment only.
