3.2 Washing your matted curly wig 


When you combed the curly wig thoroughly, you can start washing it. Here are some tips for you. 

First of all, you must pay attention to the choice of shampoo. Unice’s wigs are all made of human hair with expertly crafted, so it’d be better to use a professional wig shampoo

In addition, you should use cold water rather than hot water. Because hot water will damage the fibrous tissue of the wig but cold water will not. Washing your wig in cold water can closes the hair cuticles, which can add luster and shine to the hair.

Next, be sure to use a deep conditioner. A hair conditioner can add nutrition and moisture from the outside to make the wig soft and smooth. A fine-toothed comb can be used in this process. By slightly combing the wig, the conditioner can fully fuse with each hair, and the maximum nursing effect can be achieved.

Finally, gently lift the wig and rinse the conditioner down from the top. You can keep the water flow at a low pace, so as to avoid tangling your hair.

3.3 Drying your matted curly wig


After washing, the curly wig is very soft and smooth, so you should pay attention to some things when you dry the wig.

First, carefully put your wig on a towel and then cover it with another towel. In this process, be sure to avoid rubbing, because it will make the wig rough and tangled. Just gently wipe the moisture off the wig.  

It is recommended to air dry your curly wig. It could take up a long time for it to dry completely. So, you are suggested to leave the wig to dry all night at room temperature. You’d be better not to use blow dryers to help a human hair wig dry. Because it will damage the hair and make it so frizzy.

3.4 Applying a natural oil to your matted curly wig


As we all know, human hair can be nourished by the scalp, but human hair wigs do not have this function. Therefore, after being used for a while, human hair wigs can become dry and damaged. 

But you can nourish the curly wigs by gently applying a natural oil, like Moroccan oil or coconut oil, all over your human hair wig to restore moisture. Since coconut oil has moisture retaining properties, it can stay inside the hair stands. So, you can apply coconut oil after your hair is dry.

In addition, hair mousse is essential after drying. It can not only protect and tame your hair and give unruly curls some control but also make your curls bouncier.
