It is not always intuitive to take proper care of synthetic wig! Dry ends on a synthetic wig require special care.
Trim the ends of the wig to get rid of dry ends. Style it into a new, shorter shape after trimming or cutting the wig. You can only do this a few times since the ends will never grow back.
Apply a heavy-duty moisturizing or leave-in conditioning product on synthetic wig. Heavier is better. You need look for a lotion or cream with conditioning ingredients such as jojoba oil, shea butter or peanut extract, since synthetic hair cannot actually absorb the moisture. Spray oil on the ends can add much-needed moisture and shine.
Detangle the ends, for tangles can make the ends of your wig look dry and frizzy. Gently work through the tangles at the ends of the wig by using your fingers or a wide-tooth comb. If the tangles are very difficult to remove, you need apply a detangling lotion. Do not use a fine-tooth comb. Otherwise, it will increase the frayed appearance of the wig.
Use a heat styling tool after applying your product if your wig is heat-friendly. Once most synthetic wigs come into contact with heat, they will burn or melt. Some synthetic wigs, however, are specially developed to withstand heat. Thus, you can smooth the dry ends and improve the frayed look by using a curling iron or flat iron. It is recommended to use the lowest setting to start, and slowly increase the temperature. During this process, you should constantly check the wig to make sure it isn’t getting damaged.
You can carefully read the packaging or all the wig shop where the wig was bought to check whether your wig is heat-friendly.
