How to Wash a Synthetic Hair Wig

how to wash a synthetic wig? The answer to this question is easy if you know how to make it. That's because the only skill required in making wigs is the ability to sew, cut, and knot the thread into a shape that is pleasing to the eye.

Wigs are not sold in stores like hair or makeup products and weaves. They are usually made by amateurs at home or by selling them online. In fact, you can make a nice profit by selling the wigs you make.

Most of the time, people want to know how to wash a synthetic wig - and yes, that's a question that many find to be puzzling. After all, you can't just wash them because they're synthetic.

The good news is that if you take care of them, you won't have to worry about them wearing out and you can actually prolong their life by not washing them as often. You can also avoid any damage that may occur during the washing process.

1. Follow washing instructions

Now, how to wash a synthetic wig depends on what kind you have. These days, almost every wig comes with washing instructions and you'll probably need to follow these instructions closely. Keep in mind that even synthetic wigs that are water-resistant can still be washed by hand.

If you have wigs that are more durable and of a synthetic weave, you'll have to take special care when washing them. Water-resistance wigs should be dried immediately after the washing process to avoid the frizz and damage from the heat from direct sunlight.

2. Brush the wig before washing

Use a soft brush to brush it before you shampoo it. Don't use a blow dryer because this may cause your wig to absorb the heat and may tear the hairs at the base.

3. Dry the wig with a hairdryer

If you're looking for a gentle washing method, you can use a hairdryer to dry the wig.

On the other hand, if you have wigs that require a specific type of conditioning to be put on before they will appear full, you'll have to use a hairdryer. This is especially true if you get wigs that have a natural curl to them.

Don't use a steamer or hair spray. You don't want any chemicals on your wig.


Wigs are wonderful pieces of clothing to add to your wardrobe, but they can be expensive to buy. If you have a lot of money to invest in your look, consider getting a wig that's machine washable, while others might choose one that can only be washed by hand.
