Hi I'm Steven at Beauty World in Wilmington, North Carolina and today we're going to talk about how to keep your wigs from frizzing. The materials you're going to need to help keep the frizz down off of your wig are very basic, an oil-free shine. At certain points you will be able to use a mousse, shampoo and real important is going to be a mannequin head. To keep the frizz down off of your wig initially you're not going to want to do a whole lot other than brushing and washing. A good wig shampoo, don't be afraid to shampoo your wig at all, cold water basin don't ever use warm water; will do a lot to actually keep the frizz down. For a daily type maintenance you want to use an oil-free shine of some sort. Oil is really bad for synthetic wigs. It's going to break down the actual fiber. It will also let all the dust in the air collect to it. I know a lot of people want to immediately use oil sheen on their wigs but it's actually very bad for the wig. You need oil in your own hair but not in a synthetic wig. If you have a human wig you can apply some oil but at the same time you're going to be letting all the dust and grime that's in the air collect on that wig so it is still better not to use it. The oil-frees are really good. There is also hair fresheners you can use. They will actually add a little bit, this is an oil-free one. They'll add a little bit of shine. They'll actually help with the smell but they'll also keep the frizz down as well because they will actually have something to weigh down the hair. Really important is what you do at night. Most people end up frizzing up their hair at night than any other time because while they're sleeping they turn and roll and it gets tangled up. The very best thing to do is to get a mannequin head and take it off every night and put it on the mannequin head. If you have a lace wig and you lose glue or tape you're going to want to wrap it up at night. You are going to take a basic wrap and just make sure your hair is very secure, that it's not going to be able to move around at night. Towards the end of the life of a wig it is okay to use a mousse. You know in the beginning you want to keep it loose and free, but towards the end, after you have had it for several months and you know it's about time to get a new one, go ahead and feel free to use a mousse to get you through the next couple of weeks. It's going to make it a little bit stiffer, but it will help you get through those last few weeks until you can buy a new one. I'm Steven from Beauty World in Wilmington, North Carolina, and that's how you keep your wig from frizzing.
