How To Wash and Maintain Your Human Hair Wigs: The Essential Guide


At Amani Hair Couture, we're committed to helping you maximize the lifespan and appearance of your human hair wigs. With the right care and products, your wig can stay looking fresh and vibrant for longer. This guide will outline the best practices for cleaning and maintaining your wigs, and introduce you to our handy Wig Laundry and Wig Revamps services.

Heat Styling: Safeguard Your Hair

Before styling with heat appliances such as flat irons, curling irons, or hair dryers, always use a heat protectant spray. This crucial step safeguards your wig's hair, preserving its health and structure.

Moisturizing: Strive for Lightness

Utilize a non-greasy, non-oily moisturizer to keep your wig's hair supple and manageable. Apply sparingly before styling, concentrating on the ends instead of the roots. Steer clear of heavy products that might weigh down your hair or cause tangling.

Shampooing: Be Gentle and Infrequent

Cleanse your human hair wig roughly once a month or as required to get rid of dirt and product residue. Opt for gentle, sodium and sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to preserve the hair's natural oils. Massage the shampoo gently into the hair, from roots to ends. Thoroughly rinse with warm water, then apply conditioner, leaving it on for 1-2 minutes before rinsing.

Drying: Opt for Air

After washing, gently pat away excess water from the wig using a microfiber towel. Air drying is the preferred method, but a hair dryer on a cool setting can be used if necessary. Avoid towel rubbing or hot tools to prevent tangling and breakage.
