|Before the wash.|
I've been protective styling for the last 3 months under my Sensationnel Easy 27 Wig. It's a Human Hair wig and I decided on Human hair because I want it to last for while and be able to wash it. To me, synthetic hair gets crunchy, I can't wash and heat style it, and it gives my scalp major itchies. I think it's that alkaline layer and I can't soak it in vinegar before wearing as it will ruin the style. Plus it was only $30 and I bought a back up the other day too. I felt like a washing was long overdue for this wig, it was losing it's lustre, and was getting a little oily at the front. I looked up some youtube videos and settled on this one.
-Clarifying shampoo(a gentle shampoo is recommended but I took the chance since I have a back up wig)
-V05 Moisture Milks Conditioner
-Comb/brush out all tangles.
-Place wig in tub and fill the water to just over the wig.
-Swish it around. I gently squeezed and squished it also to really get the dirt out.
-Rinse and repeat
-Refill tub/sink, add conditioner and swish the wig around. I also let mine soak for about 5 minutes.
-Put the wig on the mannequin and let it dry. Mine dried overnight. DO NOT COMB THE WIG WHEN IT'S WET.
-Flat iron. I used my Conair on 285 degrees. Although it's a human hair wig I was careful not to use extreme heat. I used my CHI at first but it was too hot and seemed to dry the section out.
|After first wash. YUCK!! Good thing I used clarifying shampoo.|
I'm so ashamed.
|Left overnight to dry.|
