A curly wig enables you to wear this classic look consistently because curly hair never goes out of style. Even though curly wigs require Despite requiring a little extra upkeep, maintaining short curly wigs over time is easy with the appropriate care. In this piece, we'll go over how to wash a curly wig properly and how to maintain curly wigs.

A. How to Take Care of Curly Wigs

First, section your hair.

The first step in caring for a curly wig is to divide the hair into pieces. You should divide the hair into small portions if your curly wig includes small, tightly curled ringlets, like the Curl Appeal wig from the Gabor collection. You can divide the hair into bigger parts if your curly wig has larger, looser curls, like the Hudson wig by Rene of Paris, or use hair extensions.

Spray a detangling mist in step two.

The next step is to wet each part with a detangling spray softly. Use wig care products for synthetic hair if you're working with a synthetic curly wig. Use only items made for caring for human hair if you're working with a human hair wig.

Step 3: Carefully brush your hair

Brush the curls carefully to get rid of tangles. When brushing curly wigs, be careful always to use a wide-toothed comb. Regular combs and hairbrushes can cause shedding, damage the curls, and leave your wig looking frizzy.

Restore the Curls in Step Four

You must return the curls to their normal style after removing any tangles or knots from your wig. Separate the hair into portions based on the sort of curls your wig has or wants it to have: smaller sections for tighter curls and larger areas for looser curls or waves.

Gently twist each curl with your finger, then let it return to its natural pattern. Try twisting your curls the other way if you notice that they are not bouncing back as they should.

Step #5: Safely Store Your Wig

Making sure to store your detangled wig safely is the last step in caring for curly wigs. To preserve the curls and stop further tangling, gently cover the wig with a hair net. Then, to prevent it from becoming dusty, lay your wig flat within the bag or box it came in or put it inside a plastic container covered with a lid.

When it comes to bad wig maintenance habits, remember that throwing your wig on the ground, a desk, or a chest of drawers might cause your curls to become tangled and knotted.
