Some good tips for this type of wig
1. Finger comb only or if you must use a very wide tooth comb & comb gently holding small sections of hair from the bottom up.
2. Wash in cold water only. I like to add a capful of fabric softener and soak my wigs for a hour or so before rinsing, really helps.
3. Use a good wig spray. I spray once a week, some people spray more some less. Focus spraying mainly the ends of the hair and around the nape of the wig where it will get tangled the most. The top of the wig you don't need anything but a light spray for shine.
Edited to say-I like Demert Wig Spray in the pump bottle, but the aerosol is ok too
thanks for the tips, i'm learning something new every day.
I have a couple of spiral-type
synthetic wigs. You know what works for me? This may sound hella-crazy.. Fabric softener.
The wig IS synthetic. These spiral wigs have lasted me over 3 months so far. But i've had to do intermittent trimming for snags, or areas where the curls start to look frizzy. Around the nape, mostly.
I read about this on BHM, and LHCF, and thought these ladies were nuts. Whelp, when i co-washed my wigs, i decided to put a little in there. At first the wig will feel hard while it's wet. When it dries, it will soften.
Afterwards, i learned a much more convenient way to keep the wig soft - just make a spritz of water and a small amount of fabric softener. Don't use too much, or you'll wind up running around smelling like "Downy". That stuff is very powerful...
This is just a suggestion, and i truly hope your wigs last a long time, OP.
