One of the best parts of wearing a wig is the ease of styling. You can save so much time getting ready for work in the morning or to go out at night, and you’re guaranteed a good hair day! But when your wig is tangled, your good hair day can go downhill quickly. So how do you defend against wig tangling and keep your hair looking great all the time?
Keep Up the Care and Maintenance
The best and easiest way to keep your mane tangle-free is to keep up the care and maintenance. Brush out your wig after EVERY TIME you wear it. Start at the ends and using gentle strokes, work your way up towards the scalp and crown. Be sure to brush all the way through the fibers to distribute products and oils on the strands. This helps keep the fibers flat while keeping a natural shine.
Follow a scheduled maintenance routine for washing and conditioning your wig. Check the wig manufacturer’s guidelines and consult with your wig stylist, but this is usually every few weeks, depending on how often you wear the wig and what you’re doing while you wear it (swimming and working out may call for more frequent care). Use products specifically made for wigs and be gentle when working the shampoo into the hair fibers. Rinse thoroughly and apply a conditioner. A leave-in conditioner may be your preference if you have frequently tangled hair.
