Care Tips For Wig Longevity

When you find that look you love, you want to know the right care tips for wig longevity. Luckily, caring for your synthetic wig is extremely easy!


First, you want to make sure that you’re not washing her after every use. Judge it the way you judge your own hair. Keep the hair clean by washing at least once a week or every two weeks with cold to warm water, never hot. Wash her right away after swimming and comb through the hair after activities like exercising.

Once it is time for a wash, you’re going to want to fill your sink with lukewarm water, and then add some Woman In Disguise Shampoo and let her soak for 2-3 minutes. After that, gently rinse and then refill the sink with lukewarm water and Woman In Disguise Conditioner and let her soak for another 2-3 minutes. You’ll only want to use the products specifically designed for your wig.

After washing, use a towel to press down on the wig to release any excess water. For drying, use the towel to then put her on her wig stand and use your fingers only to work through the hair. It’s that simple!

Deciding To Cut

Cutting your wig can be the most economical haircut. You only have to cut it once, but remember – it won’t grow back! That’s why it’s important to make sure you know exactly what you want, and consider having a professional take care of the job.

Before cutting a wig, it’s important to know what exactly you want done with it. Before making any decisions, wear the wig around for a few days. What, if anything about it do you want to change? If you’ve decided you still want to change up your wig, take it to a professional. They’ll be able to know where and how to cut and style the wig to not expose any of the wig cap.

Daily Maintenance

When you have a synthetic wig there is very little to no daily maintenance since it will always hold its shape wear after wear and wash after wash. If you choose to get a real hair wig, you’re going to have to style it just like you would have to with your own hair.
