2. Wash wigs properly
Firstly, clean your wig with proper water temperature. Then, reduce the wash times. The more you wash your hair, the faster your color will fade. Shampooing causes the color molecules hard to hug tightly, and the color then washes out little by little.
3. Dry your wigs by air
Put the blow-dryer on the one side and letting your strands dry naturally. By avoiding excess heat, you lose the risk of opening up those cuticles and allowing those color molecules to fade. But for time-assuming, if you have to use a machine to dry your hair, promise me, use a blow-dryer correctly at the proper temperature.
4. Avoid some harmful ingredients
Sulfates, parabens, sodium chloride, and petrochemicals are all the harmful ingredients for your hair. Color-treated hair has a feature that trend to dullness. As sulfates has the function to give shampoos a bubbly lather, and they end up removing too much oil from your scalp and hair and can contribute to dryness.
5. Wear a hat outside
Ultraviolet ray is the killer. It keeps silent and kill the color molecules one by one. Not only it could burn your hair, but also hurt your scalp. As the same as burned woods, burning hair is almost irreversible. Harm before care is not a good option. Take care of your fascinating wig and remember to wear a hat on the sunny days.
6. Try clarifying shampoos
Clarifying shampoos could deeply cleanse the hair to get rid of excess buildup. By removing product buildup, hardened sebum on the scalp, and excess oil, clarifying shampoos actually help the color or bleach penetrate the strands better, as these impurities leave a film that functions as a barrier.
