When your 4x4 Lace Wig starts to feel sticky, dry, and rough, you’re past due for a wash. First thing’s first. Do NOT throw your wig in the washing machine. It’s far too delicate for your speed cycle. Treat your wig like it’s your own hair, washing it as often as you would your own hair i.e. every one to two weeks or sooner if you’re a fitness buff, constantly on-the-go, or use a lot of products.

Washing your 4x4 Closure Wig is probably easier than washing your own hair. The difference? You can see what you’re doing ! No rubbing or tugging!

Here’s a step-by-step break down for washing and drying your wig:
1.Use a detangling comb to gently get rid of any knots and tangles.

2.Fill your sink (or a bucket) with cold to lukewarm water and 1-2 capfuls of your favorite mild shampoo. Before dipping your wig in, mix the shampoo and water together.  Co-washing (using conditioner instead of shampoo) is a good option if your wig doesn’t have much product build-up. If it does, you should use shampoo.)

3.Place your 4x4 Lace Closure Wig into the sink (or bucket) then very gently work the mixture of shampoo and water through the wig, avoiding any rubbing or pulling. Spend some time cleaning the lace and crown of the wig as product tends to build up there.

4.Rinse the wig as gently and thoroughly as you can. Rinse again if necessary to get all the shampoo out. Again, pay special attention to the lace and crown of the wig, making sure to rinse out all the shampoo in that area.

5.Next condition your wig. Put the conditioner directly on your wig (rather than mixing it with the water) and finger comb it through. Let the treatment sit for at least 2 minutes, then rinse with cold water.

6.Do not wring out your wig. Lightly dab out any excess water. Either air-dry your wig on a wig stand or blow-dry on medium heat. Tip: Excessive heat can damage hair fibers, so air-drying is your best bet. Like a typical wash day, plan accordingly.

7.Follow up your wash and dry with a light conditioning spray to keep your hair moisturized. This step prevents your wig from becoming dangerously brittle and dry, which leads to breakage
