7 Must-Have Purchases for Preserving Your Human Hair Wig

Renowned for being versatile, incredibly flexible, and having an authentic, natural appearance, wigs made of human hair can last as long as 5 years when maintained and cared for appropriately.

But it’s important to remember that real hair wigs can’t be preserved using the same products you would use on natural hair. Below are 7 must-have purchases to help you care for your human hair wig with ease:

  1. Shampoo and conditioner

Unlike your natural hair, human hair wigs don’t produce their own oils. Regular shampoos will strip away essential moisture, making your wig look dry, brittle, and dull. Fortunately, you can easily prevent this by using a sulphate-free and paraben-free shampoo designed specifically for wigs made from human hair.

  1. Dry shampoo

Between washes, you may want (or need) to give your wig a little pick-me-up. Dry shampoo is a great way of doing this conveniently. Choose a dry shampoo that is designed specifically for wigs. These wig-safe formulas avoid harmful ingredients like alcohol and talc.

  1. Styling mousse

Styling mousse is a great way to add volume and definition to your human hair wig, especially if the weather is causing it to feel flat or limp. Choose products specifically formulated for human hair for the best results.

  1. Wig brush

A good wig brush is your best friend! Think of it like brushing your own hair – regular brushing helps keep your human hair wig smooth, tangle-free and gives it a healthy-looking shine. Make sure to use a brush designed for wigs to be extra gentle on the fibers.

  1. Wig heads

It’s vital that you store your human hair wig correctly; otherwise, you risk losing its shape. Placing it carefully on a wig head or wig stand when you’re not wearing it will help keep its original shape. These stands will also provide you with the ideal place to thoroughly and safely dry your wig after washing.

  1. Wig cap

While optional, a wig cap offers several benefits. It can provide an effective barrier for sensitive scalps (common among those suffering from hair loss), it helps prevent friction and tangling of the wig hairs, and it absorbs oils and sweat that could otherwise damage your wig over time.

Additionally, a wig cap can provide you with the confidence you need if you are concerned about it slipping or flying off in windy conditions.

  1. Wig tape

If you’re having problems with your human-hair wig slipping around and moving while being worn, wig tape can help keep it in place. To grip your scalp and give you the peace of mind you need, you can purchase double-sided, transparent tape designed to securely and comfortably attach your wig to your scalp.

Now that you understand the care involved with a human hair wig, it’s time for the exciting part – finding your perfect match! While online shopping has its perks, there’s something special about trying them on in wig shops in Toronto. You’ll get to feel the luxurious texture, experiment with styles, and benefit from the expertise of in-store specialists who can guide you to the wig that makes you feel confident and beautiful.
