With heat protection and the right care you can increase the durability of your wig enormously. Most people still think of a hair mask. Nevertheless, there is one indispensable care product that you should definitely not forget: heat protection. HonestHairFactory will explain why this is so in this article.
How do I properly protect my wig?
The hair must be adequately protected so that it is not destroyed by various stresses. This is very important even with your own hair. However, if you make mistakes here, the hair will at least grow back. You can't let it get that far with a virgin hair wig. A hair mask is indispensable for the best possible care for the hair fiber, but the fiber must also be protected from the heat of the hairdryer or straightening iron. It is definitely an advantage if you turn the heat on the blow dryer to half level. If this is not possible, or if this stage also gets hot, we recommend that you apply heat protection beforehand.
What care is appropriate for my wig?
Heat protection is not just heat protection, every hair needs its own hair care, especially with mixed hair. Mixed hair consists of 50% heat-resistant synthetic hair and 50% real hair. Mixed hair cannot soak up hair care like real hair, because it does not have a cuticle but consists of a synthetic fiber. It can accumulate care on the outer layer, on the other hand, it cannot be applied separately for each individual hair. The solution is: a much lower dosage, this is the only way to create the right balance between the 2 types of hair.
Heat protection for your wig starts with the shampoo, because a good shampoo often also contains sun protection (UV protection) in addition to the substances used in hair care. We recommend the Honey Phenenomen Shampoo for this. With the hair mask, it is usually advisable to use a very strong hair mask, since the real hair almost always consists of Indian or Malaysian hair. So you are dealing with very firm and often wavy hair. So don't be afraid of hair masks that are too strong.
