If you have ever worn a synthetic wig, we are sure that you would have definitely struggled with those stubborn knots that are quite common in synthetic wigs. Detangling all those knots is a frustrating and cumbersome job. In this blog we are going to discuss why hair tangles usually happen in wigs and how to handle them.
Why is hair tangle more common in general wigs than natural hairs?
Tangling depends on the quality of the wig, i.e., how well a wig is made. It is important that all hair cuticles are aligned in the same direction. Otherwise hair tangles cannot be avoided. If the wig is processed with some chemical hair color, it is most likely to get hair tangles as well.
Any synthetic wig hairs will tangle more than your natural hairs because your scalp is constantly releasing natural oils that nourish the natural hairs and do not let them dry.
What should be your defense against wig tangling?
Using a proper shampoo and conditioner for your synthetic wig is very important. Use a mild shampoo and conditioner. Make sure it is sulfate-free and has a low pH value. Run your fingers through the hairs while washing and very gently rinse it. Do not wash your wig more than once a week.
How to comb your synthetic wig and tackle tangles?
Comb your wig when you apply conditioner. Rinse with water and let it dry for a while. Once the wig is dry, brush it again. We suggest you to use plastic brush: a boar-bristle brush will work well. If you are struggling with a hair knot start at the end of your hairs. If you begin from the top and go down, you are most likely to tangle the wig hairs even more.
