How to Keep Your Wig Looking BRAND NEW

Posted by Support OG on

Human hair wigs look great and with a good hair care regime, they can last up to 3 years. Virgin Hair is the purest hair on the market, it hasn't been treated with any chemicals which could effect it's look, shine and durability but that high quality can be expensive so we want to make sure that your investment lasts as long as possible.

Just because it's on a wig doesn't mean that we treat virgin hair any differently than if it was growing out of our heads. Our stylists have put their heads’ together to create three Golden Rules for keeping your virgin hair looking and feeling brand new. They have also shared the products that they swear by in maintaining their wigs.

Rule 1: Brush your Wig Regularly

We recommend that you brush your hair throughout the day to ensure it doesn’t tangle too much. This will help you avoid having to apply a lot of force which will increase the risk of breakage and shedding. This will make your evening brushing sessions a lot less time-consuming. Delicately brush your hair in sections using an appropriate brush, starting at the ends and working your way to the top.

We recommend:

WetBrush: The Original Detangler


Rule 2: Shampoo and Conditioner

To keep your hair sleek and soft, make sure you are using hair products designed for European Hair. Your wig is made using Caucasian hair so you have to care for it the same way. Pollution, strong chemicals in the environment and dust can all get into your hair so even though it doesn't get greasy due to natural oils, it’s important to get rid of environmental toxins to keep your hair healthy. Our stylists suggest that you wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner at least twice a month. You paid a lot of money for your wig so it's best to maintain it using quality products.

We recommend:

Herbal Essences - Bio range
£3 per Bottle
Alberto Balsam Coconut & Lyche (If you're on a budget)

Keeping up this routine will keep your hair strong, vibrant and reduce tangling

Rule 3: Protect Your Hair Daily

During the day your hair is constantly under attack. Humidity, pollution, rain, UV Rays and temperature are unavoidable factors that can impact hair health. A good quality serum provides a protective layer reflecting harmful UV rays, minimising breakage and reducing shedding. Just apply a very small amount to your hair daily to thinly coat the strands and protect them from the elements.

We recommend:

John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength 6 Effects Serum
OGX Renewing + Argan Oil of Morocco Penetrating Oil
£4.20 (Amazon)


Remember to always use a good quality heat protection serum before you apply heat to your hair.

We recommend:

Tresemme Heat Defence Spray 300ml
