It is extremely important to take good care of your synthetic or human hair wig. It is important to wash and clean your wig regularly and understand the types of products that you can and can’t use. Hair loss specialists at Simone Thomas will take you through the correct procedure for your specific wig. For example, a synthetic wig is not real hair so you can’t use tongs or straightening irons on these as they may melt the hair! Close proximity to heat sources in general should be avoided when wearing a synthetic wig, for example opening the oven door or sitting under an outdoor heater in the garden must be avoided.
The more care you take in looking after your wig the longer it is likely to last for.
Care of human hair wigs
All human hair wigs supplied by Simone Thomas hair loss clinic in Bournemouth can be set using conventional curlers and hood dryers. Heated rollers will offer a quick but temporary curl. You can also use hair straightener’s for a straighter look. All human hair wigs will fade with exposure to the sun, as with your own hair, so if it is coloured please be aware if you are in bright sunlight that you should use a UV protection cream and or a hat. Longer hair should always be brushed in a gentle downward motion from the ends first, gradually working up.
Should your wig need re-colouring we recommend that you always seek professional advice. At Simone Thomas hairdressers in Bournemouth we have colour technicians who can provide this service. Please note, human hair wigs can only be coloured a darker shade
Washing your human hair wig
Rinse hair in the same direction that the hair is falling with lukewarm water.
Evenly and gently massage shampoo onto the hair into a lather. One shampoo treatment is generally enough but repeat if necessary.
Rinse your wig using lukewarm water until all traces of shampoo are removed. Never rinse the hair under a high pressured tap.
Apply conditioner evenly throughout. Gently work the conditioner into the hair and comb through carefully from the ends gradually working up the wig.
Rinse the conditioner out with a gentle shower spray of lukewarm water.
Blot the excess water using a towel, then leave to rest in a dry towel for 5 minutes for the excess water to drain.
Place the wig on a wig stand or a poly head and brush into style. Brushing from the ends and working your way up. If you wish you can work gently with a hairdryer with the appropriate brush following day of washing. Any major styling you should take your human hair wig to a reputable salon. The Simone Thomas hair loss clinic in Bournemouth provides this service.
