Caring For Your Gamini Wig

Caring for your Wig:

  • How often to Wash- While it varies per each persons individual use, wear, styling & product habits, & scalp oil production, a good recommendation is once a month to keep your piece in good shape. You may go longer or sooner depending on the reasons mentioned above. You can go quite some time without having to Wash/ Restyle your piece, that means less heat styling, Yay!
Be sure to wash with Professional Sulfate-free Salon products, Cool to Lukewarm water, and carefully wash the wig avoiding to scruff up/tangle the hair. Keep conditioner off the roots. I recommend washing on a mannequin head you can buy for a cheap price on amazon, that way you gently massage your wig clean as you would on another persons head instead of scruffling and tangling it between your hands. However, you may simply wash between your hands and by repeatedly dunking it clean into a sink full of soapy water and conditioning, whichever works best for you. Then, gently towel dry by patting and squeezing excess water out (instead of scruffling with towel). Next apply professional leave-in products, detangle with wet brush then store and let air dry on mannequin head. The mannequin head and stand also work great for those who struggle to style hair on their own head. She'll be your sweet client once a month! :) but you can also style straight from your head while wearing it. Whatever you prefer.
  • Keep Heat Styling at a maximum of 300 degrees and always use a Professional Heat Protectant. 
  • Hair MUST be completely dry before heat styling! 
  • Opt to let the Hair Air-dry instead of Blow-Dry with Hair dryer to reduce unnecessary heat styling damage to it.
  • Avoid using excess heat styling as you would for your own Bio hair to preserve the Health of the Hair. 
  • Use a good Deep-conditioning mask when you wash it (after shampooing). Apply mask then brush & detangle it to evenly distribute the mask between the hair, Let sit at least 5 mins. Then wash out and condition as normal. This will re-hydrate and nourish your hair piece.
  • Do not sleep in your Wig. 
  • Always brush from bottom-to-top as you would bio hair. 
  • Always give a quick Brush when done wearing your Hair piece for the day then store-

Gently Brush the hair with a Wet brush, particularly around the nape (where it tangles most due to friction of head turning around shoulders) and then Store on mannequin head.
