When purchasing a virgin hair wig you want to make sure you are investing to get long term use out of the unit. Follow these tips below to ensure that your wig will last at least 3 years.
Buy virgin hair wigs! Synthetic wigs are not a good quality so they are not going to last longer than 30 days. A virgin hair wig should last at least 1 year and can last up to 3 years with proper maintenance.
Use water and conditioner on your wig before detangling or brushing.
Use heat protectant on wig before styling with heat tools.
Shampoo and condition wig ever 3-5 times you wear it. The virgin hair wigs come from human hair. This hair would probably be washed daily if growing out of someone's head! The wig must be maintained to keep hair fibers strong and thick.
Be gentle when brushing and combing. This will make sure hair does not shed.
Do not use metal brushes and combs. The only brush that should be used is a plastic denman bush. Wide tooth combs are a good tool with detangling due to the gentle nature the comb requires.
