The following instructions will helps your hair wig lasts longer and ensures your wig keep its silky or wavy pattern and look great at the same time.


I. How Often To Wash Your Human Hair Wig

Wigs do not have to be shampooed as often as natural hair. When a human hair wig is washed depends on how often you wear a wig and the type of damage caused when wearing a wig. If you wear your lace wig every day, then it should be washed at least every two weeks.

II. How to Wash Your Human Hair Wig Properly?


Step1: Brush or comb the wig starting from the ends

Gently comb out the ends of the wig first. Once they are free of knots, work your way up towards the roots until you can run your brush or comb through it without snagging. Use a wire wig brush for straight or wavy wigs, and a wide-toothed comb or your fingers for curly wigs (including natural/African-textured).

Step2: Fill your sink with cold water, then stir in 1 to 2 squeezes of shampoo

Use a high-quality shampoo that is suitable for the hair type you are washing. For example, if you are washing a curly wig, use a shampoo made for curly hair. If you know that the wig has been dyed, try a color-safe shampoo instead. Top best hair in bulk suppliers will usually give you instructions, so you just need to follow them!

  • You won’t be applying the shampoo directly to the wig fibers. Instead, you’ll be using the soapy water to wash the wig.
  • Do not use 2-in-1 shampoos that contain conditioner. You can use conditioner on your wig, but you don’t want to place it too close to the roots.

Step3: Turn the wig inside out and place it into the water

Use your fingers to turn the wig cap inside out and leave the wig fibers hanging loose. Place the wig into the water and press down on the fibers to submerge them. Give the wig a gentle swirl to help distribute the shampoo throughout the strands.

  • Turning the wig inside out will make it easier for the shampoo to reach the wig cap, which is where most of the dirt, sweat, and oils collect.

Step4: Soak the wig for 5 minutes

Make sure that the wig is completely submerged in the water. Do not move the wig around during this time. Too much thrashing, squeezing, and swirling will cause the fibers to get tangled

Step5: Rinse the wig with cold water until the shampoo is all gone

You can rinse the wig in a bucket filled with fresh, cold water, or you can do it in the sink or shower. Depending on how thick the wig is, you may have to rinse it twice

Step6: Apply conditioner to the wig

Simply drizzle some conditioner onto the hair, then gently finger-comb it. If your wig is a lace front wig or a ventilated wig, take care to avoid the wig cap. The strands are knotted onto the lace. If you apply conditioner to them, the knots will come undone and the strands will fall out. This should not be a problem with a regular, wefted wig because the fibers are sewn on instead.

  • Use a high-quality conditioner.
  • You can also use a leave-in conditioner instead if that is what you prefer.

Step7: Wait 2 minutes before rinsing the conditioner out with cold water

Leaving the conditioner on the wig for a few minutes will allow the nourishing oils to penetrate the hair and hydrate it—just like the hair that grows out of your head. Once the 2 minutes are up, rinse the wig with cold water again until the water runs clear.

  • Skip this step if you are using a leave-in conditioner.

Step8: Dry the Wigs

Use a soft towel and let the wig dried naturally. After that, you can freely  restyle it!
