How to Keep a Wet and Wavy Wig Looking Wet

Wig hair is made with either human hair, synthetic fibers or a blend of both and are available in a wide range of textures, including wet and wavy, yaki straight, silky straight, kinky and curly. For many people, lace wigs give them the option to change the length, texture and overall style of their natural hair as many times as they wish.

wet and wavy wigWhether you buy a synthetic lace wig or human hair lace wig, you must take into consideration the proper protocols to maintain it. Wavy and curly hair textures especially, can lose definition and become extremely dry and tangled if not cared for properly.

Step 1

Saturate your wet and wavy wig with water to activate the wave and/or curl pattern. You can either do this after you wash your hair, or you can dip your hair in a bucket of water. The most important step is to make sure the wet and wavy wig is wet not just damp. It must be dripping wet. 

Step 2

Separate your wet and wavy wig into 4 to 6 sections. Apply a creme moisturizer generously to each section until all sections are coated. I love using Cantu Coconut Curling Cream.        

Step 3

After you put on your creme moisturizer apply your favorite hair oil to your hair sections. 


Step 4

Brush each section (the hair should be very saturated, dripping wet) and set each section down gently without separating the hair. 

Step 5

Once all the sections are brushed through and set, place your wet and wavy wig on a wig stand and let it air dry completely before touching it. The secret is letting the hair completely dry into the wave pattern you set with the brush while it was wet before touching it. 

Once the wig it is completely dry separate the hair using your fingers only and you'll have a beautiful wet and wavy textured look!
