2. The right hair care products
Obviously how you wash and maintain the hygiene of your wigs is of vital importance to how they will last you. That’s why we recommend you use special products (either shampoo or conditioner) to maintain the quality and texture of the wig’s hair. Regular shampoo and conditioner you get at the drugstore might not be the best option since they can be too harsh and damaging to your hair’s texture in the long run. Also as a new wig owner, you would need to familiarize yourself with a new hair washing technique. Be sure to read about all the detailed techniques in this how-to guide.

3. Take it up a notch!
We always strive for the perfect look in our skincare and makeup routine. It is no wonder that our hair (natural or wigs) have to live up to the same high standard. When you get wigs and hair extensions from a reputable supplier, be sure to select the right sort of color, texture, and length for the wigs you are constructing. Even if the order came in perfectly, you might still need to do some modifications to actualize your desired vision. We think it might be best that you contact a professional hair salon who specializes in styling wigs. As you cut or do some heat treatment to your wigs, you are making a change that is irreversible. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have someone who is in the biz to consult.

4. Store your natural hair wigs properly for optimal conditions
Even if you are just getting your first wigs or have been a veteran user, we cannot stress enough the rules of proper storage. Wigs should always be stored in an upright position, ideally on a mannequin or attached to some hooks. These methods prevent the hair from getting tangled. You should also cover it with some clothes to ensure your wigs are always clean.
5. Moderation in heat treatment
As opposed to synthetic hair, human hair can be treated with heat. But there is a caveat you should know. Heat appliances like a dryer, curling devices should only be used sparingly as prolonged exposure to heat will eventually degrade wigs’ quality.
Moderation is key when it comes to heat treatment.
6. Do not neglect your natural hair at any cost.
As much as you are, we are fascinated with all the caring and styling for wigs. However, we think that your own natural hair shouldn’t take a backseat once you start wearing wigs regularly. Taking care of your bio hair is not of secondary importance. A clean healthy scalp and natural hair will also enhance your well-being and self-confidence. A lot of our readers actually use wigs as a protective method and let their natural hair have some much-needed rest. We think this is a very smart approach that you should not overlook.
