Tips to Keep Wig Clean

Brush daily

Wigs are similar to real hair and can benefit from a regular brushing session to help remove knots and tangles. But to avoid causing damage to the wig, it is practical to use the proper type of brush. The right brush will be gentle on the wig and minimize the risk of causing damage. The preferred brush will have the flexible, thin bristles that eliminate most breaking, pulling or tearing.

However, there needs to be more care involved when planing to wash the human hair wig. It is best to avoid applying any of the shampoos that contain phosphates or sulfates.
