Fill a basin with tepid water and add a dash of “Henry Margu Cleanse Shampoo” Order Code: AC0011 and froth the water. Turn the wig inside out and leave to soak submerged in the solution for 20 minutes. Gently swish the wig in the water just before removing it.


  • Remove the wig from the solution and reverse it back to its normal form, carefully rinse with cold water
    from the inside so that the fibers are pushed away from the base until all traces of the shampoo are



  • Place on a towel and blot dry. DO NOT RUB THE WIG! Carefully blot out the excess water, insert your hands inside the wig and gently shake to lift and separate the fibres.

Wigs made of synthetic fibres may well experience fibre friction, the extent of this depends on the length of the wig and the environment in which the wig is subjected to. Fibre friction is not a fault but a natural occurrence in synthetic wig products and will increase with wear.
Natural head movement allows the fibres to rub together or rub against other synthetic fabrics being worn, a static charge is created in the fibres which causes the ends to frizz and in some cases tangle, the longer the hair the more prevalent the problem. Fibre friction is usually confined to the underside of the wig and the ends of the fibre and can start to occur from the first day the wig is worn.


Ensure no synthetic garments are in contact with the wig when being worn.

Use conditioning sprays “Henry Margu Revitalize” Order Code: AC0010 regularly in the areas most vulnerable to fibre friction (underneath the back of the wig and in the neckline). Allow natural drying of synthetic wigs and always use a spray conditioner “Henry Margu Revitalize” Order Code: AC0010 prior to brushing out the wig. Should you have any further questions regarding fibre friction, please telephone our studio on (01945) 587584


  • 1) Never use bleaches, tints or dyes on synthetic wigs they will not alter the colour and will cause
    irreparable damage.
  • 2) We do not recommend the use of any other hairsprays other than those listed above as hair sprays can coat and clog the fibres.
  • 3) Do not use a hairdryer or any heated hair appliance on synthetic wigs.
  • 4) Any form of heat above 160 degrees centigrade will irreparably damage your wig. Please remember
    when cooking, oven temperatures and eye level grills are often operating above 160 degrees
  • 5) Although sunlight will not directly damage your wig, colour lift will become apparent depending on the
    amount of exposure it receives. All our products can safely be used on any of our synthetic wigs and will help maintain the original lustre and elasticity of the wig.
