How are synthetic hair wigs cared for?
Anyone who has decided on a synthetic hair wig should of course also take optimal care of it to ensure that it is durable and comfortable to wear.
But what does this actually mean in detail? What constitutes the "perfect care" of a synthetic hair wig? The following tips will help you to consider the most important points.
Tip No. 1: Don't wash synthetic hair wigs too often!
Synthetic hair wigs do not need to be washed as often as real hair. Rather, it is sufficient to proceed here as required. Since there is no greasing of the scalp, the cleaning interval is much broader here.
When washing, you should also make sure that you only clean with lukewarm water at most. Temperatures that are too high can attack the surface of the synthetic hair and - in extreme cases - make it look "straw" after a while.
Tip #2: Use the right shampoo
The market offers special shampoos that are ideally tailored to the needs of artificial hair. Here it is important not to make any compromises and only use these products.
Tip no. 3: Please do not blow dry!
Even synthetic hair wigs should always air dry and not be blow-dried or straightened. Curling irons and the like are also taboo!
Once dry, you can style them however you like. Please never comb wet synthetic hair. Otherwise, the surface may be damaged and the end result will no longer look neat.
Tip No. 4: The right equipment
Speaking of "combing": in order to protect the artificial hair as best as possible, it is easiest to use rather coarse combs and brushes. However, before combing or brushing, it is helpful to do a little preliminary work with your hands and at least loosen the larger knots.
Tip #5: No styling products
Synthetic hair wigs are characterized by a special structure, which allows many styles without spray and the like. But even apart from this aspect, the synthetic hair should not come into contact with hairspray, mousse and the like.
Synthetic hair wigs – last longer with the right care
Even if the modern synthetic hair wigs nowadays not only look good, but are also durable and robust, it is quite possible to extend their durability even further with the right care. Fortunately, this does not take much time and can be easily integrated into everyday life.

How are human hair wigs cared for?
As the name suggests, human hair wigs are hairpieces made from real hair.
From this it follows that the care of the wigs does not differ too much from that of real hair. Nevertheless, it is important to observe a few basic rules here. The following tips will help with the care of human hair wigs.
- Please use shampoo without silicone!
Human hair wigs should always be cared for with shampoo without silicone. Many manufacturers offer specific products in this context. Talk to us about choosing the right shampoo. We will help you!
- Use cold water to rinse off
So that you can enjoy your human hair wig for a long time, you should only rinse out the shampoo with cold water. In this way, the hair is not stressed too much.
- Balm can make the hair even more supple
Many people use conditioners to wash their hair. Why should you do without this with a human hair wig? As with the shampoo, there are different products on offer. How long the balm should work depends on the product. Please always read the leaflet!
- let dry
After washing, your human hair wig needs to dry naturally. Danger! Please do not rub with a towel and/or use a hair dryer. The hair dries best if it is dabbed off briefly and then placed on the wig stand.
- The combing
When the wig is completely dry, you can comb it. The best thing to do here is to be careful and avoid tearing and the like. Take your time to style the hair exactly how you like it best!
Conclusion - The care of a human hair wig is not complicated
With a few exceptions, caring for a human hair wig is no different from caring for classic hair. Among other things, it is just a matter of avoiding too much warmth or heat when washing and drying, relying on additional balm and always letting the hair dry in the air (on the wig stand). Washing with special shampoo completes the whole thing. In this way you not only ensure that your respective end result looks enchanting, but also – quite incidentally – ensure a long shelf life.
