Wearing a wig can give your own hair a break from daily styling, so it’s important that you pay attention to the upkeep of your wig. To dry a wave wig, you can twist and dry it from root to tips for pretty beach waves!
You can still wash your own hair while it’s braided as long as you rinse out the shampoo thoroughly and sit under a dryer to make sure it’s completely dry afterwards. If you leave braided hair damp under a wig, you run the risk of breeding bacteria or mildew.
When purchasing synthetic wigs, be sure to avoid the kind that is too shiny. Glossy hair is a dead giveaway that you’re wearing a wig. You can find synthetic hair that doesn’t look too shiny. If you suspect your hair is too glossy, brush it out with a paddle brush before wearing it to remove some of the shine.
The best way to prep your own hair under a wig is to wash and condition it then apply a hot oil treatment. A hot-oil treatment is great for moisturizing the hair and the scalp. After your treatment, you can cornrow the hair. Braid the hair straight back. Then, take the ends, fold them up between the parts and sew everything flat. That is the best way to create a seamless foundation so your hair won’t look too bulgy under the wig.
