1. De-Tangle

  • Before you wash, be sure to carefully detangle the hair using a wide tooth comb.
  • Lightly brush through and gently remove any tangles using a wide tooth comb/brush.
  • Do not pull or drag the fibre ….be gentle!

4. Condition

  • Apply conditioner directly to your wig, stroking downwards from roots to ends.
  • Leave in 4–5 minutes.
  • Rinse by immersing wig once more in fresh cold water.

2. Wash

  • Fill a bowl with COLD water (never hot, as heat damages fibres).
  • Mix a capful of shampoo into the water.
  • Immerse your wig and allow it to soak for few minutes.

5. Towel dry

  • Place the wig between a folded towel and pat dry.
  • Never squeeze, rub or wring your wig while drying.
  • Remove from towel.

3. Rinse

  • Immerse your wig in a fresh bowl of cold water to remove shampoo.
  • Do NOT squeeze or wring your wig.

6. Style and hair dry

  • Gently shake the wig to regain its style. Alternatively, lightly style it with a wig comb or your fingers.
  • Place wig on a folding wig stand or over the mouth of a large jar or vase to dry naturally. Never use a hair dryer, as heat damages synthetic fibres.
