Human hair wigs are an inevitable and fantastic way to enhance your beauty while protecting your scalp. However, over time, wigs may lose their silky smoothness and become frizzy or dry. If you find your human hair wig loses luster, don't worry! In this blog post, we'll explore some effective techniques to help you make your human hair wig silky again!
Why Is My Human Hair Wig Frizzy And Dry
Time Flies and Wear Frequency
First of all please don't worry too much, human hair wigs will dry out over time. This is normal. The more you wear it, the more friction it will cause your hair to become frizzy. Our scalp secretes oil to moisturize the hair, and wigs cannot absorb this natural nutrient, so they need proper care.
Lack of Moisture
Human hair wigs are made from real human hair, which just like human hair needs moisturizing to maintain its shine. If your wig is experiencing dryness, consider whether it is not being hydrated. Especially in summer, high temperature and ultraviolet rays from the sun will exacerbate its drying.
Excessive use of styling tools such as flat irons, curling irons, or blow dryers can strip the hair of its natural oils, leading to dryness and frizz. High temperatures can damage the hair cuticles, causing them to become rough and prone to frizz. Additionally, using styling products that contain alcohol or harsh chemicals can also contribute to dryness.
Improper Washing and Conditioning
Using harsh shampoos can strip away the natural oils and moisture from the hair. Similarly, skipping or inadequate conditioning can leave the hair strands dry and frizzy. It's important to use gentle, moisturizing shampoos and conditioners specifically formulated for human hair wigs.
How To Make Human Hair Wig Silky Again
If you have a human hair wig that has become dry and frizzy, there are several things you can take to make it silky again:
1. Use Paddle Brush To Detangle Your Wig Hair
Paddle brush make it a little bit easier to comb through tangled. They have flat, wide bristles that are gentle on human hair strands used in wigs. The wide bristle surface covers a larger area, making it easier to glide through the hair without causing excessive pulling or breakage. Paddle brushes can be used on different wig types, including straight, wavy, or curly wigs. Start from the ends of the hair and work your way up to prevent damage or tangling. Additionally, it's recommended to brush the wig when it's dry or slightly damp to minimize the risk of breakage.
Fill your basin with lukewarm water, excessive water temperature can cause hair to become brittle. Take the wig shampoo into the water, run your hands swirl it until all the shampoo is totally dissolved. Then let your hair sit in the basin for about 20 to 40 minutes depending on how dirty the hair is. Rinse out as much dirt as you can and then next put the shampoo on the wig and lather it on with your hands massage it and try to get as much dirt off the wig as you can. Do not forget to put some shampoo on your closure to wash off the sweat any excess foundation and powder or wig glue and gels. Use the paddle brush through the hair just to get rid of the tangles. Shampoo and conditioner will give the hair nice slip so you won’t break your hair. Rinse it out.
Tips: Avoid using regular hair products that may contain harsh chemicals, as they can strip the hair of its natural moisture. Instead, opt for sulfate-free, pH-balanced products that provide hydration and nourishment to the wig. 3. Deep condition your hair
There is a tip about the conditioner that you can mix your favorite different conditioners in a bowl. Form your unique hair care recipe. You can use a brush put it all over the hair and rub it in massage and marinate this hair so when it comes out it is going to have body and a lot of movement.

Quickly blitz it in the microwave for about 2 minutes. This can make the hair fully nourished. Then take this hair out of the bag carefully. Brush through it again before rinsing it out. Finally rinse the hair until the water runs clear. Put 3 pumps of serum in the palm of your hand. Use your hand rub it into the hair, massage it. The leave it in bathroom to air dry. 4. Redefine your wig
When your wig is completely dry, you can use a heat styling tool to redefine it. But don't forget to use heat protectant spray . This will help maintain the integrity of the wig's hair fibers and prevent them from becoming dry and brittle. For straight hair, you can use a flat straightener to restore its smoothness, or a curl iron to maintain curly shapes such as body waves. For a curly wig, you need to treat the hair before it dries, using your fingers to wrap the curly hair to restore its shape. You can finish it off with an oil spray to give it nourishment. 5. Store in Silk Satin Wig Bags
When you're not wearing your wig, storing it on a silk satin wig bags can prevent friction and tangling.
