Should you wash human hair wigs as frequently as natural hair?
Before answering this simple but significant question, let us consider why should we wash our hair. To clean the oil, dust, sweat, or other dirty substance on your hair? Yes, that is it. Depending on this, it is clear how often you should clean your human hair wigs. When to wash your human hair wig depends on how often you wear it and what type of damage it incurs while wearing.
It is recommended to wash human hair wigs every 6-8 weeks without frequent wearing. Generally, you need to remind yourself to wash it when you already have worn it 10 times. Human hair wigs do not need to be washed as often as your natural hair. Because wigs do not have the benefit of natural oils like our real hair. If you wear it daily life or almost every day, please increase the time of washing to keep it cool. But not too much, or the color of wigs fades quickly.
Too much washing does harm to your wig, but too less washing will also cause hair tangling. Even though you may not wear your human hair wigs more than twice half a year, It is advisable to wash your hair every three months. Just to remove its odor due to long time storage and give it a choice to absorb water.
Should you wash the human hair wig before wearing it?
The answer to the question is No.
So why? Why you should not wash the wig when it arrived?
As the words mentioned above, the goal you are going to washing it is to make sure it is clear. From this aspect, it is promised that all the human hair wigs at Beautyforever are super clear and neat.
Before wigs are packed and shipped, the last process is to completely clean and dry them by air. Then, wigs could be shipped and sent on your hand. So, there is no need to wash it again before wearing it.
Maybe you are concerned about the plastic smell once the wig has been taken out. Put the wig on a wig head and leave it alone in the draught place for hours. And then, you will find it fresh. If the human hair wig messes up its original shape and loses moisture in transit, please comb it at first. After cleaning the odor up, spray the moisturized spray on the hair.
Could I scrub or rub human hair wigs?
It depends. Too hard scrubbing or rubbing will damage the texture of hair. Imagine the way you wash the duster cloth. Do you think it is great to do the same to your pretty and natural human hair wigs? Without the protection of hair oil, human hair wigs lose their protective film. Rubbing hair with strong force certainly increases the friction of hair and the possibility of hair breakage.
Here is another method that helps you remove the dirty things adhered to the surface of hair without hard force friction, use the cleansing shampoo that is specially made for human hair wigs. This kind of shampoo has a strong clean effect so that you do not need to get rid of dust through hair friction.
Untangle first or wash first?
The regular way is to comb human hair wigs at first, remove the tangled knots and make it smooth, then wet hair. It is a good tip to make sure every piece of hair could be cleaned and moisturized evenly.
However, combing hair by force when hair is dry increases the risk of hair damage and breakage, Which sounds unreasonable.
Conditioner lubricating properties ensure that all the hair is smooth after application. It avoids hair loss by force and smooths hair easily. It seems that washing first is the better option.
Wash off the shampoo, and rinse cool water from the base down to the bottom of the hair. Gently blot your hair with a towel before applying the conditioner. Run your fingers lightly through the strands to keep the conditioner away from the base of the wig. It's best to start from the bottom and work your way up to the roots.
