How to Wash Lace Front Human Hair Wigs

Human hair wigs look great, feel great, and are the perfect choice when you want a high quality wig piece that looks just like real hair. But there’s one aspect of human hair wigs, particularly lace front wigs human hair, that leaves many wig owners struggling: how are you supposed to properly wash your human hair wigs? The following is a step-by-step guide to washing your lace front wigs human hair. 

Step One: Before You Wash 
Before you wash your lace front wigs human hair, you need to prepare them by making sure they are free of any residues and that they aren’t tangled. If there is any tape or bond residue on your wig or lace, you’ll need to use a wig-friendly adhesive remover to get it off. Next, you’ll want to make sure that your wig doesn’t have any tangles or knots. You can get them out using a wide toothed comb; just be sure to go from bottom to top and be careful not to pull or tug on the wig stands.

Step Two: Rinse In Lukewarm Water 
Next, place your wig in a clean container--a bowl, tub or bin that you only use for washing your wigs is ideal. The container should be filled with lukewarm water that is neither very hot or very cold. Let your wig sit for a bit so that it becomes completely wet.

Step Three: Apply Shampoo and Conditioner 
Now it’s time to apply a gentle shampoo and conditioner to your human hair wig. It’s important to use a brand that contains moisturizing agents, as this will help prolong the life of your human hair wigs. You should avoid any shampoos or conditioners with harsh chemicals that might damage the hair.

To apply the shampoo and conditioner, simply place an appropriate amount into the water and very gently swirl your wig around to make sure every inch of the hair is getting washed. Never harshly scrub or rub the shampoo/conditioner into your wig, as this will cause shedding.

Step Four: Rinse it Out 
Next, you’ll need to rinse the shampoo and conditioner out. Again, you don’t want to scrub or rub the wig with clean water as this will damage the hair. Instead, refill the bowl with clean water and gently rinse the wig until no more shampoo or conditioner comes out. You may need to dump and refill the bowl with water a few times.

Step Five: Gentle Dry 
You should ideally let your lace front wigs human hair air-dry rather than dry them with a hair dryer or even a towel. You can gently pat the wig with a towel to absorb some of the water, but you should let the bulk of the drying occur naturally. Before you leave the wig to dry, place it on a wig head so that it retains it’s full shape.
