Deanne Wentworth Wigs and Hairpieces

What does caring for a wig or hairpiece involve?

Remember the last few points about styling and the use of heat.

In general, you need to treat your wig or hairpiece with respect from the time you take it out of its box, shake it and carefully read the manufacturer’s instructions, to the time when you replace it. You need to fit, adjust and style (or get it styled) with forethought and care. You need to choose and use, also with care, the right products for it, to clean and condition it in the most suitable way, and to store it properly. 

It is very often wrong to use normal hair care products on wigs and hairpieces. Regular hairsprays tend to contain more alcohol than wig sprays, and are more damaging to acrylic wigs, and harder to wash out. Specialised wig care products are formulated to prolong and enhance the lives of the different kinds of wig at which they are aimed. Wig shampoos are gentler to acrylic fibres than regular shampoos.

A suitable specialised mousse helps to retain body, manageability, shine and texture. 

How often a wig needs cleaning, washing and drying is up to you to judge, of course, but every 7 to 10 days for a wig worn daily is sensible. Specialist wig shampoos and conditioners, and specialist wig sprays, should be used. For human hair wigs you need to use a good quality shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair. More care, and cleaning and washing, is needed when wigs are exposed to polluted, smoky and damp air, and to cooking odours. Direct heat is very bad for acrylic wigs, making it dry, frizzled and shrivelled in extreme cases, and doing some damage in most. Hot water and hair dryers should never be used on acrylic wigs, as they usually destroy the pre-styled patterns of curls of wigs and hairpieces, and because they are generally damaging.  

In detail, shampooing and conditioning an acrylic wig involve the following. To start with, brush it gently, without touching the wig's foundation, to dislodge any excess build-up of wig spray, before shaking it gently out. Dissolve a suitable amount of specialist wig cleanser, in cool water, to produce a soapy solution. Swish the wig gently around without the slightest hint of wringing or even rubbing it. Do not leave it to soak. 
Empty and rinse the basin clean after washing, and refill it with cool or cold clean water. Rinse the wig thoroughly by swishing, at least twice.

Use a specially formulated protective conditioner. We are happy to advise on the choice of one. A protective balsam conditioner could be right. You could add this in your second rinse stage, again using cool water and rinsing thoroughly.

Lay the wig on a towel and gently blot excess water with a towel (do not wring or twist). Shake wig vigorously and hang upside down to air-dry (usually overnight). Do not brush your wig when it is wet. Indeed do not rub, wring, brush or the comb it until it is dry. Do not, either, use a hairdryer or any form of direct heat for drying: the wig will be damaged. Let the wig dry naturally on a folding wire or plastic wig stand. A polystyrene head is not as good because less air can reach the wig. Once the wig is completely dry, you can brush it or dress it with your fingers, or gently comb it out layer by layer, usually by beginning at the bottom and working your way up.

Another kind of conditioner is leave-in conditioner. This product is unsuitable for human hair, but may be used on wet or dry acrylic wigs. It can be applied on the wig by spraying. Mist should be applied evenly all over the wig, with lifting of the fibres to allow the conditioner to reach everywhere.

Virtually all of the wig and hairpiece accessories that are available are listed and/or discussed in answers to two of the other FAQs. Usually their functions are obvious from their names. The following points fill gaps that remain.

A balsam conditioner for wigs is a creamy liquid that is diluted in water and then put and kept on the wig. Spray conditioners, however, are not diluted in water (for a fairly obvious reason!). Botanical lustre gives shine, and is sprayed on a wig when it is dry.  

Headscarves and turbans are alternatives to wigs, which can be worn instead of them or if the client does not want to wear their wig(s) all the time. They are for people with alopecia/thinning hair.  

Wig caps hold hair in place underneath wigs.

There is very little that is different about using and caring for hairpieces and wigs. For example, hairpieces are cleaned and stored in the same ways, depending whether they are made from acrylic fibre or human hair. Hairpieces are fitted, following the manufacturers’ instructions supplied with them, using combs or banana clips.
