Life Span of my Wig
· This will depend on how you look after your wig. Never wear you wig or hairpiece in bed! Did you purchase recommended aftercare products?
· When a wig is cared for correctly it will generally last beyond what is the recommended life span
Synthetic wigs and hairpieces: This type of wig can last from 4 – 6 months or up to 1 year, depending on aftercare and environment.
Human Hair wigs and hairpieces: This type of wig can last for up to 6 months to 1 year or even longer - depending on after acre and environment.
Some suppliers have recently changed their life span of their human hair wigs to 6 months from what use to be a year.
It is always good to have a spare wig in case of an emergency, or back up plan.
SYNTHETIC WIG MAINTENANCE
General advice - The most important guideline is to use products that have been specifically formulated for use on synthetic fibre wigs and hairpieces.
Even the most mild and gentle products intended for human hair will eventually dull the fibres of a synthetic wig. At Lemonade, we strongly advise against using any product for human hair on your synthetic wig. Hairspray for human hair is especially damaging to a synthetic wig, and it can actually deteriorate the fibres.
It is highly recommended that you use the products Lemonade recommend in our after care section of our website. Ellen Wille aftercare products are highly recommended and our synthetic pack is best value for money.
It is important to use combs and brushes that are designed for use on synthetic wigs. You can purchase a brush in the after care section Lemonade recommends. This will prevent the fibres from splitting, and keep the wig from looking fuzzy and dull before its time.
It is really important your synthetic wig is not exposed to high levels of heat! Do not sit near open fires, be careful when opening oven door, do not set on radiator’s and most importantly, never use any heated styling tools like hairdryer, tongs, heated rollers or hair straightners.
Other points to note:
Wash wig every 4 – 6 weeks.
Fill a wash hand basin with cool water! (not hot!)
Add about the size of a ten pence coin of shampoo, put wig into water and gently run through. Do not rub vigorously!
Take wig out of water and gently squeeze out any access water.
Take a generous amount of conditioning balm and put through the hair.
Rinse out balm after 5 – 10 mins, again with cool water.
Wrap wig in towel and pat access water off.
Place wig on a wig stand/tree.
Spray at a distance of approx 12in away, with spray oil conditioner.
Lightly brush into style and leave to dry on the stand overnight in a clean dry area.
HUMAN HAIR WASHING
General advice - Washing a human hair wig is a different process than washing a synthetic wig.
Firstly you have to use different products. We recommend that you use a product that has been designed for HUMAN HAIR wigs. Lemonade Wigs retail these products, and the best value is the complete pack, you can find these in our aftercare product section.
Wash human hair every 4/5 weeks.
Hold wig in upright position were monfilament top is under shower head.
Soak wig until completely wet, and lather with shampoo.
Do not vigorously scrub wig, just gently massage.
Thoroughly rinse all shampoo out of wig, and gently squeeze out any access water. Set on a towel and pat partly dry.
Put a generous amount of conditioner onto hands and put through the mid length and ends of hair. Get a wide tooth comb and gently from the bottom up comb conditioner through the wig. NEVER COMB OR BRUSH YOUR WIG FROM THE TOP OF HEAD, ALWAYS START FROM THE BOTTOM GEMTLY TAKING OUT ANY TANGLES! Let conditioner sit in wig for 5 –10 mins, then give wig a long rinse in hot water.
Squeeze out any access water and pat dry with a towel.
Blast dry your wig off, until it is almost dry including the inside cap.
Put wig on, style dry to desired style!

Should I wear a Wig Cap?
If you are a first time wig wearer you may ponder on the idea of a wig cap.
It’s a mixed bag……some people love them, some people don’t. At Lemonade Wigs we personally are not fans of nylon wig stocking’s, that look like a pop sock, we prefer BAMBOO WIG LINERS.
Through years of listening to clients and their thoughts on comfort and staying fresh all day under your wig, you just can’t get better than Bamboo.
· WHY BAMBOO …….Its antibacterial, keeps you odor free and feeling fresh. Highly sweat absorbent (pulls moisture from skin for evaporation – moisture wicking) keeps you dry. Powerfully insulating – keeps you cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
· We do suggest using a nylon wig liner for hygiene reasons when trying you wig on (provided in your wig box).
· The best way to know if you need a wig liner is to probably just try it and see if it works for you. Everyone is different!
