Better to prevent it by finger-combing the part carefully multiple times a day. That should help. It can also happen with weaves/wefts that are sewn in, and the nape of a wig has wefts. The longer and finer texture of the hair can cause tangling easily, regularly detangling smaller knots will help avoid the development of larger tangles in the future.

Protect your wig from excessive heat exposure

Be Mindful of caution near hot ovens, stoves, and grills, as the heat can permanently damage synthetic wig fibers, causing singeing. Avoid prolonged sun exposure and excessive sweating on the neck. Prioritize the use of heat-protectant sprays before styling with hot tools to preserve hair texture and minimize tangles, and using heat-protectant sprays can extend the wig's lifespan.

The Application Of the Right Products

Safeguard your hair at night by putting hair up in pineapple (loose puff on top of your head) or use a satin scarf or bonnet to prevent any tangles. This protects against knots, maintaining hair health and moisture. Choose a silky bonnet to allow hair to glide smoothly, reducing snags, friction, and static, while avoiding cotton and fibrous materials.

Make Different Hairstyles In Special Weather

Along with the arrival of winter, the temperature has also dropped significantly, meanwhile, we notice more and more complaints about hair tangling, this is because clothes with collars, higher necklines, and scarves prevent cold weather. This may lead to tangling, as hair is prone to becoming tucking in clothing or rubbing against it, resulting in friction and knots.

You can pull your hair back into a low ponytail or bun to avoid rubbing at the nape.

Store Your Wig In the Proper Place
