Smell– Factory washes the hair with warm water and shampoo, and we put the haie oil in the hair before shipment; protecting the hair from being dry during long-term delivery. Once the hair is washed via shampoo and conditioner, whatever smell that is left behind from the haie oil will fade.
Shedding- There may be a few strands when combing the hair with your fingers, comb or brush; but it is normal, just like our own hair. You should not get more than a few strands!! We highly suggest detangling your hair from the ends to the base, using a wide tooth comb or your fingers.
Coloring- All hairs can be dyed/ bleached to any color you want but remember to not to dye /bleach hair too frequently it will cause damage to the hair.
Shampooing- Before washing hair, detangle hair by combing with your fingers or a wide tooth comb. From the end to the base.
- In a basin of lukewarm water, apply a small amount of shampoo to create a bubble solution
- Submerge the wig for 5-10 minutes, gently swishing in a slow circular motion, always in the same direction. ( Avoid rubbing as it may cause knots). Turn the wig inside out and repeat. Be sure to soak the frontal or closure part of your wig to dissolve out the product build up.
- Rinse thoroughly by soaking in cool water until all shampoo product has been completely removed
Conditioning- Apply a mild conditioner to the hair of the wig, avoiding the base cap of the wig (applying conditioner to the base of the cap can weaken the knots)
- Rinse conditioner thoroughly until water is clear
- For curly hair it is optional to use a leave-in conditioner after washing (apply lightly and evenly) then allow hair to dry.
Drying- Wrap wig in a towel patting gently to remove excess water. Follow by placing a wig on a vented wig stand and allow it to dry naturally. Blow drying can be done with the use of a heat protector.
Styling- You can use all types of styling tools (flat irons, curling iron, crimpner, etc) but must be combined with a heat protector. Stay away from using too much heat, for healthy long lasting hair.
Frontal/ Closure- The lace is the most sensitive part of your unit, so you must be extra careful when working around it.
- When using hot tools like hot combs, wands and irons, do not place it directly on the lace.
- Avoid pulling the hair on the lace because it will cause balding.
Bundles/ Wigs- We strongly recommend washing your hair/wig once a week to keep the hair looking healthy.
- If your hair is colored, it is important to keep in mind that the more you wash the hair, the more the color bleeds out. To obtain a longer lasting color you can use color stay shampoos and conditioners.
- Be careful when using hot tools around the wig cap, to avoid melting it.
