Questions About Wig Care
Q: How do I care for my wig?
A: If you have a wig made of human hair, do what you would usually do with your own hair: wash, condition, and moisturize it regularly. As for synthetic hair, use products formulated specifically for wig-care, and don’t forget to brush and detangle it.
Q: Can my wig be dyed or colored?
A: Yes, you can dye your wig. But, if you work with synthetic hair, don’t go with harsh permanent dye, as you can lose the luster of the hair, making it dull and brittle. With human hair, you can use the same dyes and developers as you would use for your hair.
Q: Can I sleep in my wig?
A: Sleeping with your wig on is not recommended, as it shortens its lifespan. When you sleep in a wig, the hair brushes against the pillow and causes friction, which may lead to breakage, matting, and tangling.
