How to Detangle a Matted Human Hair Wig the Right Way

As some of us have more or less noticed, the hair of our hair system, especially curly human hair wigs can get tangled over time without proper care. Not only does this lead to an unnatural messy look that can give the secret away, but it can also gradually jeopardize the hair system itself by causing excessive hair shedding, thus cutting back on its lifespan.

So is there anything we could do to detangle the hair whenever hair tangling happens to our hair wigs?

At New Times Hair, we will be more than glad to share the answers with you to help you out! Read on to find out the exact steps that are meant to help you take better care of your hairpieces by giving you a clear idea of how you should untangle the hair the right way!

Watch the video below for a detailed demonstration of the steps mentioned above to better understand how it is done:

Step 1. Tick the hair out of the base using a comb and brush the hair starting from the tips, then the middle part, and move up to the roots.

Step 5. Apply some conditioner again and gently comb the hair the same way. Soak it in water for 10 minutes with the net side up, then rinse off the conditioner while combing the hair (you don’t need to wash it very cleanly, as long as it’s not slippery or sticky).

Step 6. Wrap up the hair with an absorbent towel to absorb the moisture and comb the hair until there is no hair tangling.
