We all need that one wig for those bad hair days. These beauties will instantly transform your current look within seconds, as well as boost your confidence. Its easy to neglect what goes on underneath the our units but we must also take care of the foundation. Let's not end up with damaged hair underneath, let's keep loving our own.
How to get the most out of your wig without damaging your hair
Scalp massage: Give your scalp regular massages to help with blood flow. Sometimes our wigs can become tight due to the band, so to help with blood flow circulation give it a good massage.
Shampoo: Shampoo and condition your hair regularly with deep treatments to aid growth.
Scalp: Always grease your scalp with oils and moisturisers regularly to avoid breakage.
Trimming: Have regular trims to get rid of dead ends. This will also aid your hair to grow faster and to remain healthy.
Sleeping: Never sleep with your wig on, as your scalp needs to breath. Apply a water based moisturiser before bed. Always wear a silk head wrap or sleep on a silk pillow to avoid friction and breakage.
Under wraps: Always have your hair neatly cornrowed, and make sure they are small to medium size so that the wig can sit flat when on. You can also wear a stocking cap for an extra barrier, this is optional.
