Why Human Hair Wigs Become Dry And Tangled?


This is what we absolutely hate to deal with, however, the problem is inevitable due to the nature of human hair that is not growing in its natural scalp environment. So, it's best to educate consumers why this happens and how to properly care for your ombre human hair wigs.


There are many different factors that can cause this to happen:


▪ Poor quality of hair


▪ Lack of natural oils


▪ Hard water exposure can cause them to become dry or damaged hair extensions fade.


▪ Sun exposure can damage the hair extensions by making them brittle.


▪ Chlorine exposure can also cause colored human hair wigs and human hair extensions to become unmanageable.


▪ Seawater exposure can damage the hair extensions in much the same way as hard water and chlorine.


All of these factors play a significant role in why your 13x6 lace front wig human hair can become dry and unmanageable.

Best Hair Oils For My Wig:

Coconut Oil


Due to its moisture-retaining properties, coconut oil stays inside the hair strands instead of evaporating, making it one of the most effective hair treatments there is.


Use coconut oil to deep condition your wig by slathering them with the oil prior to washing. Try to refrain from using it as a finishing oil, as you may find that your hair looks too oily/greasy afterward.


Argan Oil


Just a few drops of argan oil nourishes, moisturizes, and smoothens hair strands, reducing dryness, brittleness, and frizziness, perfect for soft, manageable 40 inch human hair wig. Since argan oil is not as greasy as coconut oil, it can be used as a finishing oil after styling.


Jojoba Oil


Extracted from the jojoba plant, jojoba oil has a chemical structure that resembles the oil that is produced naturally by our scalps (sebum). Therefore, similar to coconut oil, jojoba oil hydrates hair strands from deep within, adding shine and softness to the wig. Use jojoba oil as an overnight mask before washing.


Macadamia Oil


Macadamia oil is the best for very dry hair and deep wave wig. It’s good to use after you’ve been in the sun for prolonged amounts of time or if you’ve used lots of heating tools on the hair.


Other oils that can be used are almond oil, olive oil, lavender oil, and other essential oils. You can dilute the solution by adding water, for a lighter formula.

Why is A Water-Based Moisturizer Important?

A water-based moisturizer will ensure that the hair wigs receive the moisture (water) it needs; oils can be added at any time but oils don't provide moisture, they provide proteins or lubrication or both (if you choose the right oil).


Moisturizers for curly human hair and human hair wigs are best if they:


are water-based (water is the first ingredient)


contain plant-based oils or kinds of butter


do not contain mineral oil


Human hair wigs are recommended for women who have experience wearing wigs and enjoy the styling versatility they allow. Real human hair wigs provide a highly natural look and a silky feel and typically come in a basic style.


Most real human hair wigs are professionally styled or trimmed to give the exact look required. Best human hair wigs can be styled, permed, and colored just like your own hair.


Human Hair wigs can last a lot longer than synthetic wigs, but that’s only if you take proper care of them. It is better to moisturize your human hair wigs to let them more natural, the best moisturizer for them is important. But do you know how to moisturize a wig?
