Like natural human hair, keeping your wig collection in pristine condition is necessary if you want to keep them in style and looking flawless.
Unkempt wigs and sheitels can in time look unnatural, may shed, show hints of your receding hairline, or fail to cover thinning hair. Here are some basic hair care instructions that will help maintain your wigs’ tiptop condition:
1. Wash them with special hair care products
Washing your wigs require special shampoo and conditioner that are different from what one would use for real human hair. Most wigs will do fine with sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner.
Of course, you’ll first have to determine from what material your wigs and sheitels are made of. Human hair wigs become better with clarifying solutions while synthetic wigs require more gentle solutions.
Use Milano’s Gentle Brush after washing your wigs and sheitels with special formulated shampoo and conditioner
The key is to soak your wigs or sheitels in shampoo and water, and with a wig comb, such as Milano’s Anti-Static Teasing Comb get the formula off. Then rinse your wigs with lukewarm water until they are shampoo and conditioner-free and use the Milano’s Gentle Brush from the ends upwards to straighten out tangles. Finish by letting your wig air dry.
2. Seek professional help
By professional help for your wig care we don’t mean going to a hair loss clinic or medical wig insurance provider. Instead, we encourage you to take your wigs to Milano’s Wig Specialists and visit our showrooms for proper care and maintenance.
Never attempt to cut your wigs on your own. We all know wig hair never grows back and though your medical insurance may cover your wigs, you want to take the utmost care in your wig so it lasts as long as possible.
You can take advantage of Milano’s free virtual consultations right in the comfort of your own home so you can get advice in terms of style, length, and proper care that you need. Our WIg Specialists can provide customized and expert wig care options whether you prefer to communicate by phone, e-mail (at firstname.lastname@example.org), live or video chat.
3. Keep your wigs stored and styled properly
It’s also essential to keep your wigs away from dust and in an upright position using mannequins when you are not wearing them. Keeping them lying around the house can make your wigs and sheitels prone to tangles, dirt, and wear and tear.
Milano offers storage and styling options to keep your wig collection safe, styled, and ready anytime you may need them. With their assortment of wig care styling products and mannequins, you’ll keep your wigs always ready-to-wear, ready for travel, and ready to shine.
If you choose to keep them stored at home, make sure your wigs are not exposed to direct sunlight and use a heat protectant if you plan to use heat styling tools.
