Hair Care Tips for Your Scalp and Medical-Grade Wigs
Maintaining the health of your scalp and the longevity of your medical-grade wigs requires some knowledge and routine care.
Here are some key tips to help you:
Use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo to cleanse your scalp. Keeping your scalp clean is important, but harsh products can cause dryness and irritation.
MoisturizeApply a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer to your scalp to keep it hydrated. Avoid heavy products that can clog pores and lead to buildup under your wig.
When not wearing your wig, protect your scalp from the sun's harmful UV rays by wearing a hat or applying sunscreen specifically designed for the scalp.
Medical-Grade Wig Care:
Clean your wig every 6-8 wears, or more often if you use heavy styling products. Use a shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for synthetic hair, if applicable, and wash gently to avoid tangling.
Avoid heat when drying your wig. Instead, blot it gently with a towel and let it air dry on a wig stand to maintain its shape.
Store your wig on a wig stand or mannequin head when not used. This helps it keep its shape and prevents tangling and damage. If you need to store it longer, keep it in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight.
You can style your wig just like your natural hair, but avoid high heat as it can damage the fibers. Use a wide-tooth comb or a brush designed for wigs to detangle and style it.
Regularly check your wig for signs of wear and tear. If you notice any damage or thinning, it may be time to repair or replace your wig.
Remember, taking care of your scalp and wig will make you feel comfortable and confident and extend your wig's life.
