How to Wash and Condition Human Hair Full Lace Wigs

"Wig care can be a task, but it can be easy if you know a few key points."  

Shampooing and  Conditioning:  
What you wash your units with is as important as how you wash them.  Washing the unit applied can be a little tricky.  Excessive water and moisture can cause the bond to slip.  It's best to wash your unit on a mannequin head.  Here's howAdhere the unit to the mannequin head using T-pins. The T pins will keep the unit in place while you wash and condition it.  Be sure to detangle the unit, working from the ends to the roots. Start at the ends first and work your way up.  Detangling this way will minimize the amount of strands lost, and makes detangling an easy process. Once the unit is detangled, it's time to wash and condition the unit.  There are lots of products on the market that will help keep your wig in great condition.  Many products are designed  particularly for Indian Remy Hair.  Most often, the same products used for  your own hair can be used to wash and condition your human hair units.  A few pointers when looking for just the right products:  If the unit is curly remy hair, use products for curly human hair.  If the unit is straight hair, you can use the same products that you would use for straight human hair.

Washing and conditioning:
Never use extremely hot water because it can cause the unit to dry out prematurely.  Always use either cool or lukewarm water.  Use a soft stream of water.  Wet the wig first.  To apply the shampoo, you can use a spray bottle with ½ shampoo and half water.  Spray the shampoo mixture onto the wet hair.  Don't rub briskly or scrub the hair.  Smooth the shampoo onto the unit from  roots to ends. Rinse with cool or lukewarm water. Repeat.  Conditioner can be applied in the same manner.  Be sure to rinse all of the product out of the hair.  Left over product can weigh the hair down.  Once the unit is washed and conditioned, it can be air-dried right on the mannequin head.

Knot Sealing:Once the unit is completely dry, the next step is imperative to reduce the chance of premature shedding.  Knot sealer can be purchased on line or even at your local beauty supply store.  The purpose of the knot sealer is to re-seal the hair into the base of the unit where the hairs are knotted into the base.

Turn the unit inside out. Be sure none of the hair is exposed. Spray the knot sealer on the inside of the unit and let it either air dry or use a blow dryer on the cool or warm setting.  Be sure the knot sealer is completely dry before applying the unit.
The unit can now be styled either still on the mannequin head, or applied.
