If you once try a curly hairstyle with your natural hair, you will know that it’s not easy to make the curls always luscious. And the same thing happens with your curly hair wig. A curly wig for natural hair also requires special care to have a shiny look. But, don’t be discouraged. The sassier curly locks is ways better than the normal hairstyles, right? So, let learn the step-by-step maintaining process for your curly wig and you can be confident with the perfect ringlets all the time.
How to take care of your curly hair wig?
Section the hair
The first step the maintenance process for a curly wig is to section the hair. If your long curly hair wig has tight and small ringlets, let separate the hair into smaller sections. But in case it has larger and looser curls, you can divide the hair into larger sections.
Spray a detangling mist
The next thing to do is lightly spray each section with a detangling mist. If you’re working with a synthetic curly wig, make sure to use products for synthetic hair.
Gently brush the hair
To remove any knots and tangles on the wig, you should gently brush the curls. Keep in mind that you always use a wide-toothed comb or your own fingers when brushing the curly hair wigs. Regular combs and hairbrushes will ruin the curls and make your wig look frizzy, which will result in hair shedding.
Restore the curls
After you remove the tangles or knots from your wig, it’s time to restore the curls. Doing so will help you take your wig to its original style. Depending on the curl types of your wig, or you want your wig to have, part the hair into sections. Make sure you make smaller sections for tighter curls and larger sections for looser curls or waves. Then, use your finger to twist each curl gently, and allow it to fall back into its original curl pattern. After you twist the hair, if you notice that your curls are not bouncing back properly, try twisting them in the opposite direction.
If you have a curly lace wig human hair, you can try using a curling iron to restore your curls. But don’t overuse the heat styling. It’s better to turn on low heat mode.
Store your curly hair wig
To finalize your marinating process for your curly hair wig, you need to store your wig carefully. It’s best to gently cover the wig with a hair net to keep the curls in place to prevent further tangling. After that, lay your wig flat into the bag or box (the original packaging). You can also put your wig into a plastic, sealed box to stop it from getting dusty.
