How to straighten your wig

Due to the nature of our wigs, they're high maintenance and require extra care. Even if you're wearing a wavy or curly hair wig, no matter how much you try to maintain it with oil or sheen, hair straightening is important to get the hair in shape after frequent use. 

Straightening of hair was initially limited to salons, but now, everyone can use it at home, which makes it even better. Hair straightening is easy and fast to do.

The first thing is to apply oil or cream to keep your hair from getting fried. Part the hair into sections, and detangle the hair from the ends to the bottom. Start from the tips first, then work your way up to the top and not the other way round. 

Take the straightener and put your hair in between the two claps but give room for the hair to glide over easily. Press the claps together and pull straight down running through the hair. 

Starting from the roots, run the straightener through to the ends. Try to get as close as you can to the root so that the hair can lay flat and be neat. Use a clip to section your hair to avoid scattering. 

Resection and repeat this process till you see an obvious result. Once the hair is smooth, comb or brush it out.

Be careful not to have too hot temperatures so that you do not damage your hair. A temperature range of between 160°C and 180°C (320°F to 356°F) will be safe for your hair. 

If you can't find a heat range option on your straightener, make sure not to go through the straightening process more than once so as to reduce the risk of frying your hair. If possible, use a heat protectant to be on the safe side. 

Except it's a permanent straightening, which is a chemical process, you might notice your wig returning to its former state after some use. You'll need to repeat this process each time you notice this.

I hope this helps.
