If you have had long hair and have gone swimming, there is a good chance that you have experienced the horror of finding your hair tangled to the point where you have to go through it with a comb piece by piece over the course of an hour to get all of the snarls out. If you have made the switch to a natural hair wig, you might have found that horrible knots form without even going swimming. This is a problem that everyone has and is due to the fact that wigs do not produce the natural oils that your scalp does, which helps with detangling. Here are some tips for detangling a natural hair wig without damaging it.
1. Shampoo and Condition Your Wig
Purchase wig shampoo and conditioner that are specially made for natural hair wigs. This will allow you to make sure that you are not accidentally stripping your wigs by using a shampoo or conditioner that has too high of a pH level. Then, place your wig on a wig head so that it maintains its shape. Shampoo the wig, knots and all, while the wig is on the wig head. Do not scrub the wig. Instead, run your fingers through the water and shampoo, squeezing occasionally to make sure that the shampoo or conditioner permeates. Scrubbing may rip hair out or create more knots. When you are done, rinse the wig by dipping it into a tub full of water and allowing the water to drain off. Do this until the shampoo or conditioner has been removed. This will soften the hair and allow you to get out any dust or dirt particles that might cause the knots to be harder to remove.
2. Comb at the Right Time
The next thing that you want to do is make sure that you are detangling at the correct time. The best time to detangle your wig is when there is conditioner in it, because the conditioner will make the wig slippery and easier to unknot. Use a wide-toothed comb to help prevent damage. Start at the ends of the wig first and move your way to the scalp. This might seem like the opposite of what you would do with normal hair, but it will allow you to get the tangles out without ripping any hair out. Using a brush specifically designed for wigs is also a good idea.
