Guides for cleaning your wig will sometimes say you only need to clean your wig after 10-14 days of wear — that’s way too long. There is certainly some element of personal choice here. As a general rule of thumb, consider how long you would go between washes of your own hair. Additional factors would be perspiration, where you’ve been wearing your wig, and how many hours per day you’ve been wearing it.
Cleaning your wig too often is better than cleaning it too little. It is important to note that when you wash your wig, you will typically be without it for 24 hours or more if human hair. This is a strong reason for making sure that you buy a second wig or a back up.
Do not use regular cleaning products on them. Wig shampoos, conditioners and lusterizers are especially designed to work with the fibers that are used in the manufacturing of the wigs. This is true for synthetic and human hair wigs. The hair used in human hair wigs have been process multiple times during the wigs creation. This results in it being more susceptible to damage. The cleaning products we provide are specifically designed to clean the wigs we sell. And we highly recommend professional servicing for human hair wigs.
