How to maintain your braided wig and make it look natural
1.Clean it carefully.
Braided wigs also need careful cleaning and care like our natural hair. The high-quality wig needs more careful care. It is not as casual as washing our hair by ourselves. If the method is wrong, it will damage the shape and hairline of the wig and affect the service life of the wig. Handwoven high-end wigs are carefully crocheted by skilled technicians for tens of days and tens of thousands of times. How to clean braided wigs? What are the precautions?
Before cleaning, we need to smooth the braids so that they don’t tangle. We should try to avoid using plastic combs, or steel combs, because this will produce too much static electricity, leading to hair easy to knot, and hang hair off.
Then put the wig into warm water (about 20 degrees centigrade is the best, no more than 25 degrees centigrade) for 5-10 minutes. The time should not be too long, and avoid long-time immersion or using high-temperature hot water cleaning as far as possible. Overheated water temperature will easily damage the original curvature and shape of the hair, leading to hair falling off, which will reduce the life of the wig. After all, the raw material of high-end wigs is human hair, not those inferior synthetic wigs.
2.Use special shampoo and multipurpose lotion.
Wigs need appropriate shampoo and hair care products to protect, you can buy some high-quality shampoo and wig care solutions if possible. Add an appropriate amount of shampoo into the water (better if there is a special detergent for high-end wigs), and wash in a gently pressing way. Note: wash by hand, never by washing machine; Do not scrub the wig with force.
3.Dry it in proper placement.
After cleaning in this way, change the water, rinse with clean water to remove excess foam. Then add a complete multipurpose solution into the water, soak the wig for about 10 minutes, and rinse it with clean water. Now it’s time to dry it. Use a soft and dry towel to press the wig dry gently. Note: never screw it by hand or dry it by washing machine.
Finally, put the washed wig on the special bracket for the wig, and put it in the indoor ventilated place to let the wig dry naturally to avoid sun exposure; When the wig is dry to 90%, gently comb it with your hand. The part without braids can be combed gently with a wooden comb.
Wigs have a lifetime. Wigs will be worn out and even give off a bad odor after the expiration date. Its quality will become very brittle, which makes it easy to mess up or break off. To keep your wig always shinning, we must keep the frequency of changing a wig for at least two years. Proper maintenance can prolong its life.
