1.How often do you need to clean the HD lace wig

Generally, cleaning time is determined according to wear frequency and the type of the wig. If your wig is dry, frizzy, and prone to slipping back, that's usually a sign that you need to clean your hair. Wigs, like our own natural hair and clothes, need to be washed regularly. When wearing traditional wigs, glue is usually needed, and this kind of wig usually has a lot of glue attached on the lace, so our cleaning frequency will increase correspondingly. When you take your wig off once or twice a week, you need to take care of it and clean it.

For the glueless HD lace wig, it will be cleaned less often. Because the wig doesn’t need glue when you wear, the reason to clean it is because the grease from the scalp and the dirty stuff that comes into contact with the air can hide on the wig, and we just need to wash the wig like our own hair. If you only wear your wig a few times a week, you can choose to wash it once every two months, or once a month if you wear it more frequently.

2.How do I keep my HD lace wig looking new?

First of all, when buying a wig, you should pay attention to its material and carefully read the instructions provided by the manufacturer. Keep in mind what to do and what to avoid. Different materials of wig care methods are also different. Common wig types on the market mainly include Synthetic hair and human hair. Synthetic hair is artificial, usually made of nylon or acrylic, which means it won't absorb normal hair dye, so you'll need to use special dyes.

Secondly, there are certain requirements for shampoo and conditioner when you wash the wig. You can't use low-cost shampoo to wash it just because it's a wig, which will cause a lot of damage to the wig. Don't use any spray on your HD lace wig, either, to maximize its condition.

Finally, store wigs properly. Wigs are prone to static electricity. If you keep rubbing them, they will become rough, which can lead to knots and hair shedding. Don't t sleep or shower in a wig either; it needs your careful care to keep it as good as new.
