HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR BRAIDED WIG.
Friendly Reminder: Braided wigs beginners or first-time users should install in a salon by a professional hairstylist. After that, you can easily install it by yourself.
When you first receive your braided wig, take it out of the package and stretch it out fingers combined because the packaging might make them fold/wrinkle. By doing this, it'll make the wig go back to its normal state.
- How To Wash: Dip midway into a bowl of lukewarm water with a few drops of shampoo and then rinse afterward. The whole purpose of dipping the wig into lukewarm water is to get rid of sweat and dust after usage.
- Drying The Wig: The best way to dry a braided wig is underneath direct sunlight in an open-air space. Nothing comes close to natural daylight and natural air. It is best to let your wig dry overnight and have a backup version on hand if you need to wear one right away. Blow drying a braided wig is acceptable, but you should blow with care to avoid hair frizz. Apply hair mousse while wet and as desired from time to time when dry to keep frayed hair away. Always hang upright with the tips straight too. You can hang them on a wig hanger, a standard house hanger, on a mannequin, or a suspended rope.
- Wig Conditioner/Cream: Depending on the braided wig you have, you should spray a conditioner every time you wear your wig or apply a cream version to keep the shine.
DON'T DO THE FOLLOWING
- Do not have your braided wig tied up too often because doing this will leave the ends looking tacky.
- Do not plait the end of the braids if you don't know how.
- Unless you already know how to maintain braided wigs, do not sleep with your braided wig on because that will result in many frayed hairs appearing.
Good maintenance is the key to getting good value for your money. No matter how good something is, if not properly maintained, it will wither away.
