INSTRUCTIONS FOR WASHING HUMAN HAIR WIGS

 

WASHING YOUR HUMAN HAIR WIG

Wash your human hair wig using COLD WATER. Start by brushing through the wig to remove any tangles, (always start at the bottom and work up to the top to avoid compounding any knots) rinse the wig from the inside with cold water and then add a small amount of Sebastian Penetrate shampoo, order code WEL/026) into the palm of your hand and distribute this evenly all over the wig, gently massage the hair until you generate a little lather. Rinse again with cold water from the inside pushing the hair away from the base of the wig and continue until the water is running clear, never leave your human hair wig to soak in water or try to rinse it in a bowl as this will cause the HAIR to tangle.  Blot out the excess water in a towel (DO NOT RUB THE HAIR), condition as follows.

CONDITIONING YOUR HUMAN HAIR WIG

Apply the Sebastian Penetrate conditioner (order code WEL/027) into the palm of your hand and distribute evenly all over the hair, massage this through all the hair and leave for 15 minutes before rinsing. Rinse in the same manner as before still using COLD WATER, once the water is running clear lay the wig on a towel and use another to blot out as much excess water as possible. Finally, for extra protection apply Potion 9 (order code WEL/024) which will aid styling and combability of the hair. We suggest the use of a very wide tooth comb or a brush with rounded ends so as not to pluck or damage the base of your wig.

STYLING YOUR HUMAN HAIR WIG

All human hair wigs have to be styled in a similar manner to that of hair that is growing naturally. You can blow dry, tong or straighten your human hair wig as desired but try to avoid excessive heat as this will have a detrimental effect on the hair. The use of Sebastian whipped Crème styling aid mousse (order code WEL025) will help protect the hair while adding bounce and fullness, this should be used prior to styling. To add that final gloss to your hair, apply Sebastian Halo Mist (order code WEL/022) to achieve that perfect glossy finish and help prevent colour fade with its combined UV filter.

Should you wish to use a light holding spray we recommend Sebastian Shine & Define (order code WEL/023) which gives a light hold & conditions the hair at the same time.
