There are many aspects of caring for your cancer wig, including brushing, washing, and styling. If you have recently purchased a wig, you probably have questions about how to properly care for it. One of the questions that you may ask is, can I use an everyday hairbrush on my wig?’
The answer is no, your everyday hairbrush is not the best choice for your wig. Wigs need to be treated gently, and the brush that you would use for your natural hair may tear the wig cap or pull out the hairs of your wig. Instead, we suggest using a wide tooth comb. This will be a lot easier on your wig, and will prevent damages caused by regular brushes. If you have a human hair wig, you can try a flat paddle wig brush with pin teeth as well.
To make sure that your wig stays looking beautiful and undamaged, keep these tips in mind:
- Never brush your wig when it is wet. This is especially true for human hair wigs. Hair is weakest when wet, so it is best to let it air dry before brushing.
- Use your wig brush from the bottom up. It’s important not to brush too close to the wig cap, as the teeth of a comb or pins from a hair brush can snag the cap and tear it. Instead, start at the ends of the hair and work your way up.
- Use smooth, gentle strokes. Using too much force will cause hair to fall out. Try not to rush; if you take your time and are careful with your wig, you’ll see great results.
By using the right styling techniques and treating your wig with care, your wig will not only look great, but it will last a long time also. For any other questions about your wig, feel free to contact us for expert advice on wig care, fitting, and styling.
