How To Care For Real Hair Wigs?

Real hair wigs are the go-to hair solution for folks who want that stunning, natural look with endless styling versatility that turns heads wherever you go. 

But just like your natural hair, real hair wigs need some TLC to keep them soft, shiny, and oh-so-manageable!

So, grab a seat and get ready for a crash course in wig care. We’ve got your back with step-by-step instructions on how to keep your real hair wigs looking drop-dead gorgeous and as natural as can be.

What Are Real Hair Wigs?

Real hair wigs, also known as human hair wigs, are made from natural human hair collected from donors. These wigs are designed to closely resemble the texture, bounce, and feel of your natural hair.

Now, we know what you’re thinking, “can I still give these wigs the same wild hairstyle treatment that I give my natural locks?” You bet your hairbrush you can! Twist, twirl, curl, or straighten real hair wigs to your heart’s content!

But, here’s the deal – because real hair wigs are like your hair’s long-lost twin, they’re going to need a bit of TLC. Think of them as your high-maintenance friend (but in a good way). 

Pamper them with the same love and care you give your natural hair – washing, conditioning, and gentle styling. It’s like having a spa day for your scalp and strands!

So, real hair wigs are the VIP ticket to hair awesomeness. They’re the chameleons of the hair world, morphing into any style you fancy. 

Just remember, treat real hair wigs right, and they’ll be your trusty sidekick, bringing a dose of glamor and a dash of sass to your every strut and twirl!

1. Brushing Real Hair Wigs

Are you ready to give your incredible real hair wigs the royal treatment? Then grab your comb and get ready to enter the world of wig-brushing magic! 

But hold on because we have a few important hair care rules you need to follow if you want to keep your real hair wigs looking fabulous.

First, use a wide-tooth comb or a wig brush that’s softer than a fluffy cloud to brush your real hair wigs. Now, here comes the wig secret: always start from the end and work your way up. Think of it as a hair ladder to reach hair perfection. No shortcuts here, ladies!

Let’s not forget about gentle touch. You don’t want to go all Hulk on your real hair wigs, do you? Avoid pulling or tugging the hair fibers like it’s a tug-of-war competition.

And remember, patience is key! Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is wig perfection. Take your time, enjoy the process, and let your real hair wigs transform into a silky masterpiece. 

So, grab that comb and get ready to conquer the world, one stroke at a time!

2. Washing and Conditioning Real Hair Wigs

Washing those luscious locks of your real hair wigs is like giving it a luxurious spa day – talk about VIP treatment, right?

Fill the sink with cold water and add a cap full of wig shampoo. Think of it as giving your wig a luxurious bubble bath. Gently immerse your real hair wigs in the water and swirl it around, ensuring that the shampoo reaches all the strands. 

Avoid rubbing and twisting real hair wigs as we’re sure you’re not trying to give your wig a whirlpool experience! This can cause great damage. Rinse the wig thoroughly under running tap water until the water runs clear. 

Once you’ve rinsed away the suds, it’s time for the wig towel party! Pat your wig dry with a clean towel, gently squeezing it to remove any excess water. Then place your real hair wigs on a wig-drying stand.

Now, here comes the fun part – giving your wig a hydration boost! 

Grab your trusty spray-on wig conditioner add spray it from mid-lengths to ends. Your real hair wigs will soak up the conditioner like a sponge, becoming more manageable and shiny by the second. 

But remember to avoid applying conditioner to the roots. You don’t want your wig to feel like it’s carrying the weight of the world on its scalp!

Last but not least, patience is key, my friends. Let your wig air dry completely before you start styling or manipulating it. Remember, wigs are delicate when wet, and we don’t want any hair-raising surprises. 

So sit back, relax, and let your wig air dry to perfection in a cool and clean place away from direct sunlight. Trust us; the wait will be worth it!

Now, go forth and conquer the world with your freshly washed and pampered wig.

3. Styling Real Hair Wigs

Get ready to unlock the magical world of real hair wigs, where styling is your canvas! Human hair wigs are your hair’s cool and versatile cousins – they’re always up for a straightening soirée, a curling carnival, or even a waves workshop. 

But don’t let the excitement cook your style sense! Think of heat protectant products as your wig’s superhero cape – they shield it from heat like a pro. Spritz your heat protectant spray, and you’re ready to rock those hot styling tools!

Think of it this way: your human hair wigs are like a fabulous dessert, and heat protectant is the icing on top. Just as you wouldn’t bake cookies without an oven mitt, don’t style your wig without a heat protectant. 

This step not only ensures your wig stays as vibrant as your emoji game but also adds an extra layer of glam protection to prevent heat damage.

Now, let’s talk about heat management – because nobody wants a hair meltdown, right? 

Keep that dial in check, ladies! Low to medium heat settings are your BFFs. We’re all about creating sizzling looks, not a hair barbecue. 

Remember, you’re the hairstylist extraordinaire, and your wig is your VIP client. No need to blast it with heat like you’re aiming for a hair launch to the moon.

And how can we forget about those styling tools? 

Ceramic and tourmaline-coated tools are like the superhero in terms of heat-styling tools. They’re here to save the day by spreading heat evenly and making sure your human hair wigs get the star treatment it deserves. Overheating? Not on their watch!

So there you have it, the heat-styling secrets that’ll make your wig look runway-ready. Spritz, protect and dazzle with that styling magic. Your real hair wig is about to be the star of its own show – and you are the dazzling director!

4. Storing Real Hair Wigs

After a long day of slaying the world, it’s tempting to just plop your human hair wigs down on the nearest surface and call it a night. 

But where you store it when it’s not in use can make a world of difference. So, let’s give human hair wigs the VIP treatment they deserve!

Let’s talk storage options. 

Wig stands are like the superheroes of short-term storage. They keep your human hair wigs safe, organized, and ready for action. It’s like having a mini wig boutique in your own home! 

Plus, they’re perfect for those moments when you feel like switching up your wig game or need a quick change for the next morning.

Now, when it’s time to hit the road and take your wig on a fabulous adventure, wig cases are your best friends. These nifty contraptions ensure your wig maintains its shape and stays protected during your travels. It’s like giving your wig its very own first-class seat!

And here’s a bonus tip for keeping your wig looking fresh and fabulous: give it a little spritz with a wig conditioner or detangling spray before wearing. We’re talking about minimizing static and keeping that hair oh-so-manageable. 

If you encounter any knots or tangles throughout the day (it happens to the best of us), reach for a wig-friendly detangling spray and gently comb through the hair fibers with your fingers or a wide-tooth comb. 

Remember, your wig is a star, darling! Treat it like royalty, and it’ll return the favor with every glamorous hair flip.
