Precautions when shampooing the wig

Avoid using a hair dryer
Regardless of the material, blowing hot air from a dryer on a wet wig not only damages the hair, but also causes deformation and undulation.
Natural drying is preferable, but if you need to dry it quickly, use a dryer with cold air. However, if the wig is made of heat-resistant fiber, it can withstand up to 180 degrees, so you can use hot air from a dryer.
Use a wig stand when drying naturally
It is common to use either a “wig stand” or a “wig stand” when drying a wig. However, since the wig base is made of Styrofoam, it feels stable when the wig is put on.
On the other hand, the wig stand is made up of only a framework to support the wig, so it has the advantage of being breathable and easy to dry. We recommend using a wig stand when air-drying your wig.
Brushing from the tip of the hair
Brushing the wig before shampooing has the advantage of removing dust, dirt, and tangles, but it can cause hair loss if you are not careful.
If you suddenly brush from the roots, it will be easier to apply force, which will damage the hair and make it easier for tangled hair to come out. is important.
