How to Wash My Human Hair Wig

1. Avoid brushing your hair when wet to prevent damage

So before washing your wig, gently comb it out and remove any knots. Start at the ends of your hair and work your way down to the bottom of your hat. Make sure you use a comb designed for wigs. For stubborn tangles, a spray of conditioner can help loosen them.

2. Do not soak or immerse the product

Dipping your hair in water can make it messy and difficult to manage. It's best to let the water run from root to tail. To do this, you can put the wig under the faucet in the sink (but only if your hair is short). For longer lace wigs, we recommend placing the wig under the faucet in the tub or shower so the hair doesn't get caught in the basin below.

3. Rinse your hair with running cool or mild water

Rinsing with hot water will damage the cap.

4. Don't wash too often. It is recommended to wash human hair wigs every 7-14 days

Each time a wig is washed, its life is shortened. Therefore, wash the wig no more than necessary.

5. Only use hair products designed for human wigs

Don't use standard drugstore hair products. They contain chemicals that shorten the life of wigs. Invest in high quality products to maintain your wig.

6. Don't twist or twist

Apply a small amount of color shampoo to your hands and stroke your hair evenly and gently from the roots down to the tips. Rinse until the water runs clear. Squeeze gently to squeeze out excess water.


1. Use a non-oily conditioner

Oil-free conditioner is simple to use: Spray it a few times before putting on a wig to make it silky and shiny, as well as anti-static, keeping it moist and silky like new hair.

2. Avoid applying conditioner to the bottom of your wig

While your hair is still wet, apply a small amount of human hair wig conditioner to the palm of your hand and apply it evenly to your hair. But don't apply conditioner to the bottom of the wig, as it can loosen knots in the hat and cause hair to fall out.

How to blow dry human hair wig

Let dry on a wig rack. Putting the wig in a ventilated area and air-drying it on a wig rack is the gentlest way. A warm, sit-down hair dryer can also be used to dry hair.

Use a heated styling tool to shape your hair. Once your hair is dry, use heated styling tools such as curling irons and straighteners. But don't use straighteners or curlers too often, which can leave your hair lackluster, dry, and prone to breaking. Use styling products (such as hairspray) designed specifically for human wigs.

Don't brush your hair immediately after washing it. Let your hair dry before combing it. When brushing your wig, use a special wide comb (both steel and metal are fine, not plastic), starting at the ends of your hair. This will prevent the wig from falling out. If you are a curly hair wig, comb should not be used frequently, after wearing to tidy up with your hands.

Alternatively, if you don't wear a wig, you can leave it in its original packaging, shake it up, and it will stay in its original condition when you wear it.
