When it comes to Human Hair wigs and hair topper maintenance, proper care is key. Please follow our wig care instructions to keep your piece in the best condition possible.
You should wash your wig or hair topper only as needed. First, secure it to a mannequin head to prevent any slipping during the washing process. Attaching the piece to a mannequin head before washing is the most important step to avoid inversion of the hair through the cap. We recommend using a rubberized, plastic block head as opposed to a styrofoam head. Simply secure the wig to the mannequin head using several small sewing pins strategically placed at the nape and temple areas.
We do not recommend the following:
-Swimming in your wig or hair topper
-Applying conditioner to the roots
-Applying hair spray
-Sleeping in your wig or hair topper

Once the hairpiece is secured to the mannequin head, wet the hair by allowing water to run down in the natural direction of the hair from the crown to the ends. Be careful to always rinse using this simple method.
Place a quarter size amount of shampoo into your hands. Working gently with your fingertips, squeeze the hair to lather the shampoo. Avoid using circular motions while lathering the hair. In addition, be sure to shampoo the inside of the cap. Rinse thoroughly and repeat a second time to ensure your hair piece is free of residue buildup.
Rinse the hair thoroughly a second time to ensure all shampoo is removed. As before, accomplish this by running water down from the crown to the ends. Rinse until the water runs clear. This process will take a few minutes.
Apply a generous amount of conditioner starting at the nape and working up toward the roots, stopping just short of the roots by a half of an inch. Move your hands through the hair gently to evenly distribute the conditioner. Allow the conditioner to absorb into the hair for 3 to 4 minutes. Thoroughly rinse the hair. If you find that a very deep conditioning is necessary, we can provide this service for a slight fee.
Remove the wig from the mannequin. Wrap the hairpiece carefully in a towel, then gently remove excess water by squeezing from root to tip. Comb through the hair using a wide-tooth comb and allow the cap of the wig to air dry.
