Let's Talk About Wig Care, The Basics

Keeping a wig on for 15 hours a day can feel like a full-time job. It might be heavy, itchy, or just too hot. The last thing you want to do is spend time and money on something that will only help you look good for a few hours at a time. So, learn how to care for you wig and keep it looking natural and perfect. You'll never have to worry about a bad looking wig again with these life hacks!

Wig Types

There are many different types of wigs on the market. To figure out which one is best for you, take a look at your hair type.

If you have curly hair, it might be hard to find a natural-looking wig that will work for you. Straight wigs often won't match the curl pattern, and it's hard to find one that will hold curls without looking too tight or unnatural. Plus, synthetic wigs are notorious for holding heat and don't breathe as well as human hair wigs do.

The Process

It's not just the process of buying your wig that you have to worry about. Your wig can become dry, tangled, or brittle if it's not properly cared for.

It might also start to show signs of wear and tear if you don't take care of it. But don't worry! We'll show you how to make sure your wig lasts as long as possible by maximizing its natural beauty.

This guide is going to cover everything from what type of hair to buy, how to care for it, and what wigs are best for different hairstyles.

Hair Types

When you're buying hair for a wig, there's a lot to consider. Different hair types will give you different styles and looks.

If you want a curly blow-out look, for example, you'll need to buy curly or wavy hair. You can't just use any type of hair and expect it to work the same way.

You also want to make sure that the hair is similar in color and texture to your natural hair. It will make it more believable and blend in with your actual hair much better.

Buying authentic human hair is best and we have a lot of it!

Wig Care

If you wear a wig, you know how important it is to take care of it every day. A lot goes into the process of keeping it looking natural and perfect. It's not just putting on a wig and forgetting about it until the next time you need to wear one.

It requires some work, but thankfully there are a few simple things you can do to make sure your wig stays looking great for as long as possible!

Always be sure to brush it with a wig brush to prevent tangles and matting. Always start bushing from the ends up to the top. This will help keep the unit tangle free. Use a wide comb or brush regularly so you don't have any matted patches.

When your wig is new, use the drier on low to medium heat for 30 minutes to remove excess silicone that might be clinging to the hair strands and prevent shedding.

As the unit is styled be sure to use products that do not build up. Keep in mind that our units are made with human hair so ideally, it's safe to use any product you would use on your own hair on the wig. Be sure to wash it regularly.

Washing the unit can be done in different ways. While some prefer to wash their unit while wearing it, we recommend the unit be removed and washed on its own. It is important to wash and condition the unit with mild or natural chemical free products. When blowing your wig be sure to use a heat protectant as well as when using any hot tools during styling.

When storing your wig, always put it on its own mannequin head or wrapped in fabric, like our soft silk bags that each unit comes in so that nothing can damage or crush the hair fibers while storing it away from sunlight and moisture.

Human Hair Wigs

Choosing the right wig for your hairstyle can be a little tricky. There are so many types of wigs and so many different looks to choose from.

One question you'll need to ask yourself when choosing a wig is whether or not you want it to look natural. If your goal is for your wig to blend in and look like it's growing out of your head (rather than an obvious wig), then human hair is the way to go. Human hair wigs come in all different styles and colors and will give you the most realistic result.

Straight Wigs

Straight wigs are the most versatile type of wig. You can wear them straight or curled, up or down. It doesn't matter if you're going for a natural look or a dramatic change, the style possibilities are endless.

What kind of hair should you get? Human hair is always best because it looks more natural, although it does require maintenance to keep it looking fresh.

Curly and Wavy Wigs

If you're rocking a curly or wavy style, you might be looking for a wig that can reflect your natural hair texture.

One way to get this look is with the curly or wavy wig. These wigs are designed so that they look like natural waves and curls when styled. You'll never have to worry about getting a straight wig and spending hours styling it yourself.

The best part? You don't have to use a bunch of heat when wearing a curly or wavy unit. A nice light anti-frizz oil and some moose should have your hair looking great with little effort saving you a bunch of time!


There’s a lot to know about this process, but don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. The best thing about wearing a wig is that you can buy it in any style, color and length you want. In the end, the only limit is your imagination!
