Find tips to wash your wig like a pro and make sure you:

  • Restore Luster

    Step 1: Detangle 

    Before you wash, make sure you carefully detangle the hair using a wide tooth comb. Start from ends and work toward the root to decrease shedding.


    Step 2: Rinse

    Use lukewarm water and rinse from roots to ends. Do not soak or rub as this can lead to tangling. 
    Tip: If your wig is curly, try leaving the hairnet on.

    Step 3: Shampoo

    Loosen shampoo in your hands and work through the hair. Distribute a small amount of shampoo evenly throughout the hair. 
    Tip: Use circular motions to clean the cap.

    Leave in for a few minutes before rinsing. Do NOT apply conditioner to the root. 
    Tip: If dry or damaged, use a deep conditioner.

    Tip: Towel blot to remove excess water.
