How to care for your wig

Finally a post is up on here this week, thought this wouldn’t happen as I’m currently super duper fuper juper etc busy with school because I start exams in a few week but we still pushing. Today’s post is a hair post and I’m excited about it because hair excites me a whole lot but who doesn’t it though? The braided wig which is actually my favorite of the wigs I own at the moment is pretty in every girls wig collection right now and in today’s post I’d be sharing with you tips on how I maintain mine.

DO’s


A lot of people blame hair vendors for selling them bad hair / wig but the reality of things sometimes is the fact that most of them do not take care of these hair units properly. Even with our natural hair growing outta our scalp, if it’s not treated right it’s going to be coarse not to talk of processed hair. So here is a list of things I do to my braid wig that has it looking new on every wear

* Always hang upright with the tips straight too.

* Dip midway into a bowl of very hot water every 2weeks with a few drops of oil (optional) to straighten end.

* Apply hair mousse while wet and as desired from time to time when dry to keep frayed hair away.

How to maintain your wig, how to make your wig last longer
* Spray on some oil sheen from time to time to restore shine or in my case I use the loreal vitamino colour because it adds just the right amount of shine and it’s non greasy (I can’t deal with greasy stuff).

How to make your synthetic wig look good
I also made a little list of things not to do and they are :

* Do not have your braided wig tied up often, yeah I know it gets hot sometimes (everytime) but doing this will leave the ends looking tacky.

* Do not plait the ends. 

* Just like your weaves, do not sleep with your braided wig on because that will result in a lot of frayed hairs appearing.


It’s been 2months now since I’ve had my braided wig and I tell you buying it is one of the best decision I’ve made this year. Good maintenance is the key to getting good value for your money, no matter how good something is, if not properly maintained it will wither away. I hope this was useful to you? Do continue to enjoy the rest of your week.

            Till next time… xoxo.

  1. Guess what, my wig is hanging on the wall right now but I braided the ends. I thought braiding the ends was a good thing. Your post made me realise I’m wrong and just loosened the ends. This was really helpful, thanks!

  3. Thanks so much for this. I’ve been thinking about I may just be over-wearing it and how to maintain it. I actually wrote a couple of things down. So I should apply the mousse when wet and when dry?
