How to Care for European Hair Wigs


Although they are generally more costly than synthetic wigs,
European hair wigs are the best way to get head coverage
that looks totally natural. Whether you're using them for
every day wear or just for those occasions when you'd like
to spice up your look, European hair wigs are a fantastic
investment that can really last a long time if you maintain
them properly.  Here's how:

1) A fantastic way to keep the wig fresh, shiny, and bouncy
is to keep it oil free. A great way to do this is to keep
your scalp clean, and wash your normal hair regularly to
keep it fresh. Another great way to protect your human hair
wig is to wear a wig cap underneath.

2) As far as washing your human hair wig goes, you should
wash it infrequently. Typically, you can go through 6 uses
before it's ready to be washed. However if you notice that
your wig is looking dull, dirty, oily, or all of the above,
you can step up the washings and do it when you feel it is
necessary. Sometimes, just a good cleaning of the cap with
some cotton balls and alcohol can make your wig feel cleaner
and more comfortable to wear.

3) If you're ready to wash your human hair wig, the first
thing you should do is set it on the wig stand and remove
any tangles present. The best tool to do this with for curly
or wavy styles is a wig pick, and for a straight wig, a wire
wig brush is ideal. It's best to start at the ends and work
your way up to the roots. Using regular brushes and combs
can tangle the hair further and cause it to look frizzy, so
be sure you're using tools specifically for wigs.

4) Next, you should fill a basin or sink with warm water and
add specially formulated wig shampoo. Wig shampoo is designed
to work with the European hair wigs materials and gently
cleanse it without damaging it.

5) You should then soak the human hair wig for five minutes
in the soapy water. When the five minutes is over, gently
squeeze out the excess water and rinse with cool or lukewarm
water.

6) Next, you can drain the sink. Once empty, place the wig
in. Get a quarter sized amount of shampoo in your palm and
begin to gently massage it into the wig. Rinse.

7) After the shampoo has been thoroughly rinsed from the
human hair wig, you're ready to condition it. Get a
quarter-sized amount of wig conditioner in your hand and
massage it in gently and let it stand for a about 5 minutes
so it can really work to smooth and nourish the wig's
fibers.  Rinse well and squeeze out the excess water gently.

8)You can then place your wig in a towel and blot gently
with a towel to dry. If you choose to let it air dry, place
it on a wig stand so it dries easily. If you need to wear it
soon, you can blow dry it gently on a very low setting with a
wig-safe brush.
