Winter in New York means gearing up for snow, ice, and windy weather. For human hair wigs, that means a few careful precautions need to be taken to make sure that your wig or hair replacement stays in great condition.
1. Detangle Your Wig After Wearing. Snow, rain, and wind can all wreak havoc on individual hair strands, so it is important to detangle your human hair wig after each wear. To do this, use a comb and gently work out the tangles starting from the ends of the strands and working your way up to the base of the wig.
2. After washing, make sure to let your wig air dry or pat it dry with a towel. This will help your wig last longer and keep it in better condition. Using a wig stand or styrofoam head piece will also help your wig keep its shape longer.
3. Take your wig in for regular maintenance. Like anything else, wigs suffer from general wear and tear, so it is important to take them into the shop for regular upkeep. At Joseph Fleischer, we encourage our customers to bring in their wigs for styling and maintenance since a human hair wig is a big investment.
