Human Hair Wig
Human hair wigs, or natural hair wigs, are made from hair collected from hair donors, so they look definitely like real hair. Some people think that human hair wig is in higher quality than synthetic ones as they are more expensive and made of real hair. It seems to make sense but human hair wigs require daily care to remain the natural look and weather conditions have a great impact on these products; thus resulting in frizz.
How To Defrizz A Wig?
Whether you have a synthetic wig or human hair one, there is a time that it suffers from frizz. So you wonder, how to defrizz a wig? So here we share with you 2 methods to fix a frizzy wig.
Use Detangling Products
This is the most common way to defrizz a wig, especially synthetic ones.
First, you place the wig on a mannequin head. If you don’t have one, use your knee, or other people’s head instead. You can defrizz a wig without stabilizing it on something but with the beginners, it may result in more frizz.
You use your fingers to detangle your wig, but the process will be much more effective with the help of a white-tooth comb. Defrizz your wig gently by your hands and focus on the ends. The most important is that you need to be as gentle as possible. Remember to avoid using a fine-tooth comb too much as it may lead to increased hair static.
Next, purchase a detangling lotion or spray. Spray a small amount of product onto an area (2.5 to 5 cm). Continue to gently comb your wig afterward. Use your fingers to solve hair knots, and then go ahead until you work all your way around your wig.
A fabric softener is also a great alternative in case you don’t find out any spray and lotion.
Wash Your Wig To Defrizz It
Sometimes your wig is too frizzy that the detangle products cannot work, washing it is recommended. Soak your wig in lukewarm water with a little laundry detergent.
After gently rinsing the wig to avoid tangling, wrap it in a towel to remove excess water then place it back in the mannequin head.
Wash your wig using a mixture of shampoo and hair conditioner (ratio 1:1). Remember to purchase products having a low pH and containing no sulfate. Ones used for extra-dry hair are recommended. You will see the result after letting it air-dry.
Fun fact: Sometimes you are so tired of defrizzing your wig over and over again, the problem may lie in its quality. In this case, try buying another one and Lewigs will be a considerable choice with their high-quality hair toppers.
