How to prepare your wig before laying?
The wig, one of the best hair accessories, is used by many people all over the world. While some women use it as a solution for their thinning hair, others use it to enhance their style. Wigs are a great way to change up your hairstyle without much effort. They last for years, are practical, hide hair loss or hair loss, can be styled differently and protect the head from the sun. And don't forget that they can protect your scalp from harsh chemicals.
In this article, we will provide you in detail with the information necessary to prepare your wig before installation.
Comb and detangle your wig
Combing a wig is a bit more complicated than brushing regular human hair, as you have to be a bit more careful.
It is extremely important to comb your wig before installation. This allows you to get rid of any knots that can build up and grow over time. Small knots are much easier to remove than large ones, and because you have to brush gently, it's harder to do when your wig has big knots that need to be removed. Comb your wig to remove tangles. Be sure to detangle your wig hair thoroughly with a wide-toothed comb. Ordinary brushes are too harsh for a wig because they can stretch and pull the hair out of the wig instead of brushing it gently.
Wigs should be brushed from the bottom up. By brushing up and down, you risk tangling even more, leaving the wig looking worse than when you started. Also, combing a wig from the roots can cause the brush or comb to tangle and pull strands out of your wig.
Do it gently and go slowly. If your wig is curly, brush each curl separately. If on the other hand it is straight, make sections so as not to mix with what you have already brushed.
The key to combing a wig is to do it gently. Wigs are much more delicate than your own hair, and too much force can pull out strands of hair. Take your time and be patient to get the best result.
Hydrate your wig with a moisturizing conditioner
When looking for a moisturizing wig conditioner, only use water-based moisturizers. Water is a major hydrating agent, so you need to find a moisturizing product that has water as its first ingredient. Water like other natural ingredients such as oils help maintain moisture in the hair shaft. You must first apply a moisturizing conditioner before laying your wig in order to obtain natural curls that are well defined and refreshed over time.
To moisturize the hair of your wig, you must do the following:
- Divide your hair into sections and lightly mist each section with water.
- Detangle each section using a wide tooth comb, starting at the ends and working upwards.
- Apply the oil of your choice to the entire length of your hair, evenly.
- Do a twisting motion.
- Repeat for the other sections.
In order to keep your wigs in good condition, so that they last longer, make sure they are well moisturized.
