Wigs should be treated just as well as the hair from your scalp. They need shampooing, conditioning, detangling, and protection from heat styling. And that’s not to say you need to wash and style your wig every day, or every week for that matter — every two weeks should be sufficient.
This pixie synthetic wig from Qingcheng is incredibly lightweight and comfortable to wear, with chic layers covering the crown area. It’s great for everyday use as it takes mere seconds to put on and remove.
Granted, sew-ins take more time to achieve than traditional wigs, but they are a great style that you can wear for six to nine weeks. Worn with a closure (no hair showing) or laceless with some hair out, a sleek sew-in is always the move.
As you know, Y2K-inspired hair is back and here to stay. Next up: crimped hair. To achieve this style, you can purchase a crimped wig or extensions, or crimp with a hot tool. Channel your inner-Nicki by taking out some of your baby hairs and then swoop and swirl with an edge control.
At the 2021 Met Gala, A-listers sported glossy just-got-out-the-shower beach waves, and now you can, too. Start by washing your wig and then combing and setting damp hair with your favorite smoothing gel or cream to hide any flyaways.
Because the scalp is more prone to dehydration in the winter, moisture is key to maintain your wig and avoid brittle, lack-luster hair. For even more definition, gently rake a curl cream through the damp wig hair and diffuse curls with a blow dryer or hooded dryer.
To get long-term wear out of your wig, be sure to cleanse your natural hair and scalp and dry thoroughly with a bonnet dryer to avoid bacterial growth. This bonnet dryer is great for setting and conditioning the hair thanks to the indirect heat it provides.
