How Should I Store My  Wig  In Between Uses?

Always gently brush your wig after each use using a wig brush to detangle it before storage. Start gently brushing from the bottom up to avoid causing knots and pulling out the hair. If necessary, use a synthetic wig detangling spray. You may store your wig on display using a wig head, or, you may simply and carefully wrap your wig up in its original hair net and keep it in its original box.
How Often Should I Wash My  Wig?

Determining how often to wash your wig generally depends on how often you wear it. Your wig should be washed after about 30 wears, or every four to six weeks. However, your lifestyle also plays a big part in how often your wig should be washed. If you're around heavy smoke, perfume, or strong odors of any kind, you should wash it more often.
Preparing to Wash Your  Wig:

Take a look at your wig. Wigs should be washed when they are dull, lifeless, over-sprayed, or tangled from too much teasing. Start by gently brushing your wig from the bottom in short strokes to remove knots, any spray build-up, and to separate the hair strands.
Step-by-Step Guide to Washing Your Synthetic  Wig:
Mix lukewarm water with synthetic wig shampoo in a sink or basin (never use a washing machine). Soak your wig for five minutes, or a little longer depending on how soiled it is. Even if your wig is quite soiled, never rub, twist or wring it.
After the five minutes, gently dip it up and down in the water. If there are makeup stains on the cap, clean them gently with a small brush (like a toothbrush.)
Rinse your wig gently but thoroughly in lukewarm water.
After washing your wig, conditioning it will restore the original style pattern of your wig. Conditioning the wig will keep it looking great and lasting longer. Synthetic wig conditioner contains specially blended oils that soften dryness and bring out the luster and mobility of the hair. To condition your wig, refill your sink or basin with clean, lukewarm water. Add one or two capfuls of conditioner to the cool water. Immerse your wig in the conditioner solution, gently working the solution through the wig with your fingers.
Rinse your wig again gently but thoroughly in lukewarm water.
The weight of the water could stretch the wig hair and ruin the style. To avoid this, pat the excess water out of the wig with a towel. Hang your wig loosely on a wig stand or over a bottle (like a shampoo bottle) to dry at room temperature. Never place a wet wig on a Styrofoam head or a blockhead which can stretch the wig cap. Also, never comb a wet wig or attempt to speed dry it with a blow dryer. Air drying takes only a few hours and ensures healthy-looking, manageable hair. Once your wig is completely dry, use a wig brush to gently brush out your wig, starting from the bottom and working your way up.
