WHY IS MY WIG DRY AND STIFF?

It is inevitable that your wig will lose its natural soft bounce over time. One reason this happens is simply because the human hair on the wig does not receive the natural oils from the scalp to keep the hair moisturized regularly. Yes, we can restore the luster of our wigs, but it’s important to understand what causes the wig to lose its natural shine as well.

Factors that lead to the deterioration of your wig includes:
