We grow up knowing how to take care of our natural hair. We know to wash it when it gets oily, condition it when it becomes tangled or full of static, and what steps to take in order to style it how we’d like. If you are new to wearing wigs, however, you’ll quickly find that caring for your wig doesn’t come second-nature like caring for your natural hair does. Here at Secrets of a Duchess, we have a wide variety of wigs in all sorts of colors and styles for your enjoyment and style. Here are a few tips to ensure that your natural or synthetic wig is able to last as long as possible.
First and foremost, make sure you use products that are intended for wigs. Natural hair has different cleansing and conditioning needs than a wig, and therefore wigs require different products. When cleansing your wig, for example, you will want to use specialized products and clean with cool, never hot water.
Second, don’t dry your wig with harsh heat. Your wig cannot secrete natural oils to protect itself from drying heat, and that blow dryer can cause irreparable damage. Gentle drying is all you’ll need in order to take care of your wig.
Finally, style carefully with the right products. You might be pleased to find that wigs are far easier to style and maintain in a certain style than your natural hair.
