How to Make Human Hair Wig Silky Again: Tips and Tricks for a Silky Finish


Understanding human hair wigs

Human hair wigs are made from real, high-quality human hair. They are typically more expensive than synthetic wigs, but they also look and feel more realistic. Human hair wigs can be styled and dyed just like your natural hair, but they also require more maintenance to keep them looking their best. It’s important to understand the differences between human hair wigs and synthetic wigs before you start caring for your wig.

Human hair wigs are more delicate than synthetic wigs and require more careful handling. They are also more susceptible to damage from heat styling tools, so it’s important to use caution when using curling irons or flat irons on your wig. Human hair wigs can also be more prone to tangling, so it’s important to take extra care when detangling your wig.


Signs that your human hair wig needs to be revived


How to Make Human Hair Wig Silky


If your human hair wig is losing its luster, and looking a bit dull, tangled, or fuzzy, it’s like a cry for help. Look out for these signs:

  • Dull and lifeless hair: If your wig looks kind of boring and not shiny, it needs some help. This can happen when it gets dirty or too much stuff is in it.
  • Tangling or matting: When the wig hair keeps getting all twisted and stuck together, it’s a sign it needs fixing. This can happen after you wear it a lot.
  • Frizzy or flyaway hair: If the wig hair looks messy with little hairs sticking out, it needs attention. It could mean the hair is dry or damaged.
  • Dry or brittle feeling: When the wig feels dry and might break easily, it needs moisture. This can happen if it’s exposed to too much heat or sun.
  • Unpleasant smells: If the wig doesn’t smell nice, it might have collected sweat or other stuff. This happens if you don’t clean it regularly.


If you notice any of these things, it’s time to take care of your wig. Check out our guide on how to make your human hair wig silky again for easy steps to make it look good again!

How to Make Human Hair Wig Silky


Preparing your wig for revival

To make your human hair wig silky again, it’s important to prepare it properly. Start by gently brushing out any tangles or knots with a wig brush or wide-tooth comb. You may also want to use a detangling spray or leave-in conditioner to help make the process easier.

Next, fill a sink or basin with lukewarm water and add a small amount of wig shampoo. Gently swish the wig in the water, being careful not to rub or scrub the hair. Rinse the wig thoroughly with clean water and gently squeeze out any excess water.

I. Gentle Untangling:

Begin by gently brushing out any tangles or knots in your wig using a special brush or comb. You can also use a spray or leave-in conditioner to make the process smoother.

II. Warm Bath Time:

Fill a basin with warm water and a bit of wig shampoo. Give your wig a gentle swish in the water. Remember not to scrub too hard. Rinse it well and gently squeeze out extra water. 

Transforming Your Wig with Luxurious Deep Conditioning

Elevate your wig’s vitality with a deep conditioning session, saying goodbye to knots and hello to added moisture, shine, and softness.

Unlocking Magic for Moisture, Shine, and Softness

Giving your human hair wig deep conditioning is important to bring it back to life and make it healthy again. This special process adds moisture, makes it shinier, and brings back its softness. It’s like magic for getting rid of tough knots and frizz.

Luxurious Care: The Deep Conditioning Habit

Make your wig happy by putting on lots of conditioner and combing it with a wide-tooth comb. Cover it with a cap for 30 minutes. After, rinse it well, gently squeeze out water, and keep it soft with a detangling spray for a fresh, easy-to-style wig.


Optimal Care for Long-Lasting Beauty

Embrace optimal care to ensure lasting beauty for your hair by using the following tips:

i. Choose Wisely (Timing Matters)

Reserve wig washing for when it truly needs it, typically when it’s visibly dirty or after several wears.

ii. Special Treatment (Shampoo and Conditioner)

Select a wig shampoo and conditioner designed specifically for human hair wigs to maintain their quality and longevity.

iii. Handle with Care (Water and Chemical Caution)

Avoid subjecting your wig to hot water or harsh chemicals that could compromise its structure and appearance.

iv. Gentle Touch (Brushing and Combing)

Exercise caution and gentleness when brushing or combing your wig to prevent damage and tangling.

v. Sparingly Styled (Heat Tools and Protection)

If using heat styling tools, do so sparingly and always apply a heat protectant spray to shield your wig from potential harm.

vi. Bring on the Shine with Oils:

Want your wig to feel silky again? Easy! Just put a little argan or coconut oil on your hands and run it through your hair before each wash.

vii. Skip the Hard Water:

Don’t use hard water to wash your wig – it makes the hair dry and stiff. Even if you have a great shampoo, hard water can mess things up.

These 7 tips make it simple to keep your human hair wig looking awesome. With a bit of time and care, you can enjoy that natural, silky look whenever you want.

Now, you’re ready to start reviving your wig with a deep conditioning treatment.


Reviving your wig with a deep conditioning treatment

Deep conditioning is essential for reviving a human hair wig. It helps to restore moisture, shine, and softness to the hair, while also helping to detangle and smooth out any frizz or flyaways.

To deep condition your wig, start by applying a generous amount of conditioner to the hair. Use a wide-tooth comb to distribute the conditioner evenly throughout the hair, making sure to work it in from root to tip.

Once the conditioner is evenly distributed, cover the wig with a plastic shower cap or wrap it in a towel to help trap heat. Leave the conditioner on for at least 30 minutes, or longer if possible.

After the conditioner has had time to work its magic, rinse the wig thoroughly with lukewarm water. Gently squeeze out any excess water and blot the wig dry with a towel. Do not rub or twist the hair, as this can cause damage and tangling.

Your wig should now be soft, shiny, and easy to style. If you notice any remaining tangles or knots, you may want to use a detangling spray or leave-in conditioner to help smooth them out.


Tips for washing and styling your wig

Now that your wig is clean and conditioned, it’s important to take care when washing and styling it. Here are some tips to help keep your wig looking its best:

– Only wash your wig when it’s dirty or after several wears

– Use a wig shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for human hair wigs

– Avoid using hot water or harsh chemicals on your wig

– Be gentle when brushing or combing your wig to prevent damage and tangling

– Use heat styling tools sparingly and always use a heat protectant spray

– Store your wig on a wig stand or in a breathable bag to help maintain its shape and prevent tangling

By following these tips, you can help keep your wig looking beautiful and healthy for years to come.
