☆ The question of the hour! ☆
Many people ask me how much heat can my wigs resist. And to be honest with you, you can't put too much (or almost any) hot temperature stuff in a synthetic wig because it can result in singeing and melting the hair. Even though the ones I have can resist some heat.
So why do I have synthetic fiber wigs in my store? I choose them because they are more affordable and easy to manage than real hair wigs which can cost a lot of money and not everyone can buy.
I have a couple of wigs in the store that is already straightened but if you already have yours and want to try this method, I'm more than glad to help! And for that reason, here are some tips on managing or straightening your synthetic wig!
➊ Warm water bath
In a pot warm up the water until it reaches 160/180°F degrees. Place the wig in a place where you can pour the water on top without burning yourself or making a mess (ups!). And if it's too long you can put it inside the pot for less than 15 seconds (I wouldn't recommend this but I know people that do this). Do not brush your wig while wet because you can damage it. Allow the wig to air-dry straight or use a fan.
You can use the steam in your shower room. Just make sure you close all windows and doors. Brush the ends of the wig first with a wide-toothed comb or a wire wig brush, and then go up to the roots. You have to be super gentle!

➌ Blow Dry Straight
For this method, you have to divide the hair of the wig into parts. Make a bun on top and start with the bottom layer.

Put the hair dryer on medium or low (to avoid burning). Move the comb and the dryer down at the same time. Make sure that the dryer it's a few inches away from the roots of the wig.

Repeat until you do the full hair, including the bun. Make sure you are always gentle!
And that's it! ♡
Those are the methods I feel more confident about using and that have worked in the past. I know it's easier to have maybe an already straightened wig or maybe buy a more expensive one. I could never afford those options when I started using wigs and I don't want people to think that only if you have a lot of money you can have your perfect wig! So this is my little help for anyone out there trying to work with what they already have!
