Washing wigs~
Post By HaveLight. 05/10/09, 11:16 am

Hey everyone~

I have a wig and its getting kinda knotty and losing its shine!

I was wondering what I can use just to give it some life~
Like a shampoo or something :3

The cheapist option would be the best ^w^

Hope you can help~!

Go to your local hardware store and ask for silicon lubricant spray (I think it's about $5/can at my hammer hardware) - that will help with the knots and shine, and if it has some kinks in it from the knots/is a bit frizzy, you can use the hot water straightening method to get rid of those. Very Happy

What I did is just chuck it in a basin with a squirt of conditioner and left it there for about 4 hours, then chucked it on a wig head and let it drip-dry. After that I got a wide-toothed plastic comb and combed it out. It's very soft and shiny now and plus it smells nice too 8D

Also plastic combs + wigs doesn't usually go toooo well. plastic + plastic = static, and they go frizzy.

While it's wet it might not be as much of a problem, but dry it usually is. So use a wooden/metal one instead. (AFAIK).
