How To Maintain Your Colorful Human Hair Wigs

August 01, 2022 Fashion & Beauty Views: 2025

Just like your own color-treated hair, your colorful wigs need a little extra love and attention if you’re wanting your wig to last long. We really do not want our colorful human hair wigs fade and become tangled and frizzy after only a few weeks due to not taking care of them. Here are our pro tips and tips from our parter hairstylists…

The Right Way to Wash Your Human Hair Wig

1.Wash your colorful human hair wigs less frequently

The more you wash your wigs, the shorter the wig will last and the quicker color will fade – which is a truth! That being said, regular caring and washing your colorful human hair wigs is important, wash a human hair wig about every 6-8 weeks, or 7-10 wears depending on how often you wear the wig and how many styling products you use would be just fine, just skip the frequent washing.

For your information, our colorful human hair wigs may last up to 30 washes, so you can wear them at least 300 times with the proper washing frequency we’ve talked about above.

2.Use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner for colored hair

You run the risk of stripping your wig of its moisture and color dye by using sulfate shampoo and conditioner. Try using a color-protected sulfate-free shampoo and conditione, to keep your wig from fading and dryness.

Condition, condition!

To achieve vivid colorful color, our human hair has been bleached & dyed and processed several times during production, so the colorful human hair wigs have a shorter lifespan compared to other non-vivid-colored human hair wigs, even if they’re all made of the-same-quality remy human hair. So always remember to deep condition your colorful human hair wigs with color-protected conditioner.

3. Why Choose Sulfate-Free Shampoo for Your Colorful Wig?

Try shampooing your wig with cool water or slightly warm water and then rinse with cold water after conditioning. The warm water will allow the shampoo and conditioner to penetrate and cleanse, while the cold water will help seal in the moisture from your conditioner while preventing color from fading by sealing the hair’s cuticle (we use remy hair so yes the cuticles are intact).

4.Use dry shampoo

Try using color-safe dry shampoos on your off days of not washing your wig. These will refresh the hair and make it look like the wig just got a blowout without even having to wash the hair! You can also try color-tinted dry shampoos to revamp the color to make your colorful human hair wig lasts longer!
