Congratulations on your new wig from Hair Rich Club! Whether you've chosen a luxurious glueless piece, a ready-to-ship bob, or one of our stunning braided styles, proper care is key to maintaining its beauty and longevity. This guide is packed with essential tips to help you care for your new wig, along with some styling advice to keep you looking chic and fabulous.

Essential Wig Care Tips

Frequency: Wash your wig 1 to 2 times  depending on how often the unit is worn  or if it starts to look oily or feel sticky. 

Technique: Use lukewarm water and HRC Citrus Cleansing sulfate-free shampoo. Gently shampoo the wig in warm water, be sure to keep hair smooth as possible to avoid tangling. Rinse thoroughly and apply a HRC Citrus Detangling conditioner formulated to smooth and detangle.  Using a wide tooth comb and starting at ends,gently comb hair up to the roots.  When combing the unit be sure to not comb too rough, as you could tear hair from lace and cause thinning.

  1. Dry with Care:

After washing, gently pat the excess water with a soft towel. Avoid wringing or twisting, this can cause tangling. Place your wig on a wig stand or a mannequin head to air dry naturally. Air drying is the best way to dry but you can also use a warm dryer.  Avoid excessive heat as this can cause the hair to be dry and not last as long.

  1. Daily Maintenance:

Detangling: Before and after wearing your wig, gently brush it with a wide-tooth comb or a brush designed for wigs. Start at the ends and work your way up to the roots to avoid damaging the fibers.

Storing: When not in use, store your wig on a wig stand or mannequin head to keep its shape. Keep it away from direct sunlight, heat, and dust.

Styling Your Wig

  1. Embrace Versatility:

Ready-to-Ship Styles: Our ready-to-ship wigs are pre-styled, making them easy to wear with minimal effort. Simply pull them out, put them on, and adjust as necessary.  Some curling may be required due to the wig being packaged for shipping. You can use a flatiron or curling iron to style. 

Custom Styling: For custom units, consider booking an online video consultation with our stylists to learn how to achieve various looks without compromising the integrity of your wig.

  1. Use the Right Tools:

Invest in wig-specific styling tools and products. Use a low-heat setting if you must use heat styling tools, and always use a heat protectant spray.

  1. Accessorize:

Incorporate accessories like headbands, scarves, or clips to add a personal touch to your wig without damaging it.
