Caring For Your Wig

Storing Your Wig

  • When not in use, store your wig for short periods of time (overnight or for a few days) on a Wig stand, available from TLC™.
  • When storing the wig for longer periods of time, fold carefully and put in the box.


Care Instructions

  • Only use hair care products (shampoo, conditioner, etc.) specially formulated for wigs, such as those sold in TLC™.
  • Before washing, gently brush wig or hairpiece to remove teasing or tangles.
  • Use one ounce of synthetic wig shampoo in two quarts of cold water (never hot.)
  • Soak three to five minutes, then gently dip up and down. Do not rub.
  • Rinse thoroughly in cold water.
  • Pat out excess water in a towel. Do not brush or comb until thoroughly dry.
  • Allow to dry at room temperature. No setting is necessary, curls will snap back into position when the hair is completely dry.
  • Do not use a hair dryer, blow dryer, or curling iron.
  • Avoid excessive heat, particularly from opening an oven door. Sudden bursts of heat will damage your wig. Also be careful about getting close to an open flame or gas burner.
