It's important to use wig shampoo or shampoos that are specifically designed or compatible with hair systems. This is because regular shampoos strip the oils that are present in our hair. However, our scalp produces oils such as sebum that replenishes our hair and keeps it moisturized and hydrated. This is not present in a hair system as the hair is connected to a base material. The end result is your hair system getting dry and straw-like.
In addition, the chemicals in certain shampoos are not compatible with some hair systems. For example, silicone-based hair products have an oily film which can loosen the knots to the base, especially with lace hair systems, resulting in hair shedding. And so, it’s always recommended to use a hair system or wig shampoos.
You can certainly use a regular shampoo on your wigs and toupees. You just need to make sure the shampoo doesn't have chemicals like parabens, sulfates and phthalates which can damage your hair. Additionally, avoid silicone-based products if you’re wearing a lace hair system.
This depends on the wearer and the base material of the wig or hair system. In general, it's recommended to maintain and wash your hairpiece at least once a week or once every other week to keep it odor-free and in good condition.
When it comes to washing a wig without wig shampoo, the process is the same as washing your regular hair. If you’re wearing your hairpiece, apply shampoo on your hair once it’s rinsed and create a lather. Rinse it off after a few minutes and apply conditioner if desired.
If you would prefer to be provided with wig shampoo recommendations, Superhairpieces suggests Pura d'or shampoo, Brandywine non-static shampoo, Beautimark hydrating shampoo and Progen Nutrifuse nourishing shampoo. These are just a few of the shampoos we offer that are designed for hairpieces. For a full list, you can view our hair care products.
