Why do wigs seem to tangle more often than your own hair?
More and more people like to wear lace wigs, but many people also find that both human hair wigs and human hair extensions seem to get tangled easily. Is it because the wig is of poor quality?Or is it using the wrong method?To solve the problem of wigs knotting, we need to know why wigs knotted in the first place.
Tangling can depend a lot on how well the wig is made and whether the cuticles are all going in the right direction or if it’s been processed with chemical or colour; if the hair has been laid wrong , then it’s more likely to tangle. But any wig will tangle more than your real hair because your scalp produces natural oils that keep hair from drying out and getting caught in itself, and of course wigs do not do that. So how do you treat the hair or how do you comb the hair, This is a major factor affecting hair tangle.
What kind of behavior causes knots in your hair?
Long hair tangle more easy than short hair
Long hair is harder to work with due to the very nature of long hair. Careful washing and wearing, using the right hair products, and being aware that this hair is obviously not re-growing will assist in your hair appearance.
Messed the hair when you wash
During wash hair, Rinse with warm water or pat your hair gently. Never rub the hair as you would with naturally growing hair as to do so would cause a tangling of the hair roots at the base and undoubtedly breakage of hair would occur as you tried to comb it free.After wash, only towel dry it. You have to be gentle.
Using overuse hair products.
Adding too much hair products to your wig will lead to a messy, clunky build-up. Excessive use of oils, mousse, gels, and other hair products will cause the hair to tangle, matte, and make the hair look unclean, limp and dull.
Comb hair too much
Don’t comb hair too much, When your hair is dry, excessive grooming can dry it out and make it prone to static.When the hair is wet, excessive grooming will pull the hair out of the wig. The best time to comb it is when you’re combing conditioner through the wet hair.
Blow your hair too dry
Do not blow-dry your synthetic wig. After washing your wig, allow it to air-dry so the hair will stay smooth & manageable. Blow drying the synthetic hair will make it frizz, feel hard, stiff and will damage the synthetic fibres.
WARNING!! BE SURE you never comb the roots of the hair where they are tied to the foundation; this can cause damage and irreparable stress to the hair stability. The roots need to be left alone at all times! Rinse as before, under fresh warm running water. Take out tangles again VERY GENTLY. You do not want to break any hair as it is obviously not going to regenerate
