Should I Wash My Wig Before Wearing It?


Washing your wig before wearing it is really a personal choice. There is no right or wrong answer here, however, if you have a human hair wig for the longevity of your wig we recommend washing under the following conditions:

When You Should Wash Your Wig

  • When a human hair wig is used daily it's best to wash it at least once every two weeks.
  • If your wig feels sticky, dry or seems to have lost volume or curls.

Why You Shouldn't Wash Your Human Hair Wig Too Much

Every time you wash your wig, the lifespan of your wig is shortened.

Our scalps produce natural oils that keep our hair moisturized and protected. However wigs cannot moisturize themselves.
