10 Things N��T to do to SYNTHETIC WIGS | TAZS Tips & Tricks

Video taken from the channel: TAZSWIGCLOSET


Before washing your synthetic hair with a shampoo specially formulated for the material, used a wide-tooth comb to remove tangles. Instead of scrubbing and lathering shampoo right into the hair, rinse it in a basin filled with warm water and a capful of shampoo, then rinse it clean. Synthetic toupees are preferred for their modest care requirements.

However, you still need to invest a little attention to extend their durability and retain their original looks and appearance. In this blog, we mentioned some of the tips to take the best care of your synthetic mens hair pieces. Dissolve a dime-sized amount (more or less, depending on the size of your hairpiece) of synthetic-safe shampoo in the water.

Submerge your hairpiece in the bowl of water and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Gently swish the hairpiece in the bowl of water. No, do not create a whirlpool in the bowl unless you want to create a crazily tangled mess.

Step 4. Store the wig on a foam head or wig block, or place it gently inside a wig net so that the hair does not become frizzy. Wash a synthetic wig once every two weeks if worn daily, or once every 14 wears. More frequent washing may be necessary if styling products like hairspray are commonly applied.

As they are made of different and artificial material the synthetic hair direct need different washing care than your real hair. Always use the specific shampoos and conditioners for hair replacement systems and carefully read and follow the washing instructions as mentioned on the pack/bottle. Most adhesives used for extended wear bonding are very strong and designed to keep your hair in the right place.

For example, attach a toupee with tape can keep your hair firmly attached for up to 4-5 weeks. Therefore, we recommend using a hair remover in. Here are some dos and don’ts when it comes to taking care of your wigs.

1 Learn the difference between a human hair wig & a synthetic hair wig. It is simple, human hair wigs are stronger, and have a higher resistance to heat than a synthetic one, so it tangles a lot less and hardly ever melts. Learn to take care and style your hair in a regular basis in as feminine manner as possible. Even if you’ve grown out your own hair, a wig or hairpiece is a great way to transform your look and add some instant glam.

Human Hair vs. Synthetic Hair vs. Blended Hair. Whether you go for a wig, hairpiece, or hair extensions, the first thing you. If your hairpiece is colored, it is also important that you get a color-friendly shampoo to ensure that the hair dye lasts.

Non-color-safe shampoo, on the other hand, can cause the color to fade faster. For human hair, a shampoo like TDi Shampoo with Silk Proteins is recommended, as it is rich in proteins and very hydrating. To help with this, I suggest cutting your hair short (NOT SHAVED), leaving at least 1/2″ to 1″ of hair. This short hair will be easier to care for, protect your scalp, and will not cause scalp irritation from a razor. I carry a full range of wig fibers: human hair, synthetic, heat defiant, and blended fibers.

  • Hey! I like your video:) I’ve made once pretty similar about how to make your hair grow faster. I’m happy I’ve found your channel! ^^

  • Smh I trashed all mine and stepped my game up ������ but at least I know how to maintain one whenever I want a QUICK FIX like a crackhead ��

  • Your link about the piece you are wearing in this video is for Blake Remy HH? I really love the colors but JR HH is just out of my price range! Unless this is a different piece.

  • Over the years I have spent so much money on virgin and raw human extensions and human wigs. The problem for me is that I prefer to put on blend with my natural hair and go. With the human hair you have to flat iron if needed, curl, or put products in it to make the curls with pop. If I want a certain color then I also have to dye the extensions. It is just too much work. With synthetic, what you see is what you get. The curls, style and color will stay that way forever. That’s not the case with human extensions. The synthetic wigs look so nice now, no more baby doll hair wigs, and most times people think it’s my hair or virgin hair extensions. I’m team synthetic all the way!!

  • i prefer synthetic better because its affordable, even though its basically plastic but there are lots of synthetic wigs that looks like real hair, so yeah, synthetic it is

  • Great video, thank you! I have a strange shaped head with not much of an occipital bone in the back so I have to use It stays all around the perimeter of my head. When I take it off the inside looks “yucky” even if I take a wash cloth with cold water and gently wipe the inside it seems as though the fibers on the outside tend to get stiff. So, consequently, I end up soaking them in Balsam or washing them,. Any suggestions? Have a Happy Easter��

  • I’d advise you insert music or probably a talk through when you’re doing anything which doesn’t involve talking cah I legit thought my sound was off and when I realised it wasn’t I got bored.

  • Can you spray perfume on a wig? I dont know if this is weird, but i like to spray perfume on my natural hair. To me i feel it doesnt change the scent on my hair whereas if i sprayed it on my body. I could be wrong but thats what i have been doing for years. Help??!!

  • Just got my first wig and boy did she need some work I watched your tutorial and she looks even better than when she came out of the bag, thank you!

  • Have you tried Jon Renaus top style in human hair? I wear the synthetic version, but have really wanted to try it in human hair. I just want to be able to curl my hair.

  • When I started wearing wigs, I was investing human vs synthetic and read this in the description of a human hair with: “perfect for the lady who misses the experience of stying her own hair.” �� I live in Texas, too, and spent most of my life on the gulf coast where we had flat or fizzy humidity hair but great skin. I never want to fight my hair ever again, so I knew I would never “miss the experience” of styling my hair. That is when I knew synthetic was for me. I now have great skin and good hair every day.

  • Taz,
    As always a great tutorial, new or seasoned…its a great reminder! 4vme the one that got me ����
    4 sure was the Styrofoam Head,OMG, thought I was doing good, thank u so much I quicky ran and readjusted ALLmy wigs,
    Stay safe,GB much love at u
    ❤elanie

  • I used to HATE synthetic! Over the years I’ve learned the truth… if you know what you are doing you can tweak a synthetic wig to look natural. The style LASTS, low maintenance, etc. Synthetic is the truth!

  • I totally get it in terms of the humidity, sleekness, and styling, (also my synthetic wigs last wayyy longer). I’m just so afraid of the way it looks in sunlight, plasticy. Synthetic is better for me at night, human hair in the day.

  • I store my wigs in their boxes. I always put away my wigs, dirty because I am terrified of washing them. I am so glad for advice regarding cleaning them.

  • I hope I will meet you one day and give you a hug. I cannot deal with my thinning hair anymore. But hair for women is so personal and so feminine, thank you for sharing and walking me through this process and making it normal.

  • This is the video that i really like,no talking just a list of what to do and what not to on the screen,unlike others that talks too much��

  • Great tips! I bought a new stove and it is much hotter than my old one, and have singed it-really badly, so now when I am using the oven I will wear that one.

  • Such Great Tips!! I Needed This Video For Sure!! You Look Stunning Dear Friend!! Thank You Sooo Much For a Perfect Video as Always!! Please You and Yours Stay Safe and Well!! Happy Easter!! Love and Hugs!! XOXOXO

  • I have worn synthetic wigs and they are hot,just bought my first human hair wig will be delivered tomorrow so we will see how I feel, I wouldn’t mind styling my hair I think it will be fun because I have never been able to style my wigs because they have been synthetic,so it will be fun to maybe flat iron or do curls or whatever.

  • A great reminder, Taz. I have tenuously applied moderate heat to the front of a wig or two to train the hair away from my face, but I spritz it with water mist first. But, very tenuously and only on a couple of my less expensive wigs. Anyway, I think all your tips are great. Happy Easter! ��������

  • Ight so I’m bored on a Friday evening. My mom gave me two of her old wigs two days ago, I’m thinking “let’s make a mess” since I’m bored and so I wanted to fix up her raunchy looking old wigs so I did this, two days later after it dried, I’m highly pleased������

  • Thank you so much for this video �� i was planning to buy a new wig coz my wig is tangled. Now u changed my mind. Thank you so much for making this video. Lovelots ��

  • Totally disagree, but this is a great video with great points. My one experience with synthetic hair was that it became soooooo easily knotted and it felt so scratchy on my skin. It wasn’t a cheap piece either so I’m not sure if that’s normal or what.

  • If you use a steamer you can make the ends of the synthetic wig straight again. Just use a comb as you steam. Wig will last longer. Awesome video.

  • Great advice Taz. I need to get a good heat protectant spray! I have been afraid to try and style some of my wigs. I hope you had a great Easter.

  • COOL,I love your video,thanks for sharing, I buy the same one from newigstyle three days ago, shipped by Fedex,great quality!!!

  • I’m intrigued that so many of you love the synthetic. I tried an actual synthetic wig for several months and didn’t like it because it would get ratty looking and I would have to pay to get it steamed (I think they called it that) which was a hassle. Would toppers do the same? My bio hair is a frizzy mess in the summer so I’m also concerned about the synthetic not blending well in the humid months. I like the price point and would be happy to try synthetic again. Human hair is expensive and lots of up keep to keep it looking good but I like the fact that I have endless style options if I want.

  • Synthetic for sure! I don’t have time to style a human hair wig and frankly I’m not very good at it. I never fussed with my biological hair and what I have left is very long. Usually just threw it up in a bun. I can buy 12 synthetic wigs on sale that will last me years as opposed to one good human hair wig that might last 2 years. I love that I can just throw the synthetic wigs on and go. Plus I don’t have to worry about humidity making it frizzy. Synthetic wigs are so realistic looking that they look as real as human hair for a lot less cost.

  • Hello I defer from you in my case sintetic make me itchi in summer and get really tangle and ugly in less than 2 month i use 100%real hair I have my family buy it from my country and send it to me no mix and last year just die and keep using it the problem is the mix one horrible I spend lots of money and when to the pool and peace of junk tangle so bad beyong repear get reall hair from a people and make a wig it would change your mind forever and last longer ��

  • I would love to kmow how you guys incorporated the wig look into your lives…did you just wear one or informed colleagues…friends…etc before exposing yourself with one on lol..big step! Perhaps there is a video? ��

  • Actually all you have to do is fill the bathroom sink with boiling hot water from a teapot or pot, ( detangle the wig before hand) then slowly dip the wig half way into the water(avoid dipping cap part of the wig in the water just the hair!!) Then pull it out then take a comb and run it through the wet hair immediately (try not to burn yourself) you can repeat for maximum straightness. Let it dry add some leave on conditioner Then your wig will look as good as the day you first bought it! But note I only tested this boiling water idea on kankalon synthetic fiber.

  • I would add 2 “never do this” items.

    1. The first one, which I learned the hard way, is “never wash your wigs in hot or warm water.” Ruined the curl and stretched the cap.

    2. The second, which I’ve never done, but which many wig sisters can’t seem to resist doing is “don’t cut bangs in your wig.”

  • I don’t mean to sound rude, please no one take offense to this. I never knew synthetic hair could look so beautiful/natural. Wow. Very pretty hair and you are gorgeous.

  • I guess if you can afford quality synthetic hair, it’s a fun alternative, but not as much for someone who cannot spend more than $150-$200 every 6 months in hair. I mean, even for someone with alopecia, like us, hair is superfluous compared to a roof over our heads and food on the table. In these cases (and it’s my case), a decent human hair wig that is well taken care of might last for those whole 6 months, while allowing for styling and color changes with no need to invest much more $ into it.

  • I was scrolling through and saw the pic on the right and presumed it was someone’s real hair. Then I saw the mannequin off to the side. Ugh! I get so discouraged seeing things like this. I was really hoping too. I wear my own hair without extensions and such so it’s becoming hard to find styling my hair.

  • Please please PLEASE don’t use a paddle brush to brush out your wig. Use a wig brush or wide toothed comb. Normal hairbrushes ruin your synthetic wigs.

  • Ugh I was looking for method on new hair!!! I know I can do this when it get old but this mess of a wig tangled straight out the damn box. Thebzury colletion kitty wig everybody talk about but did nobody say how bad it tangles…smh its horrible

  • Hi Amber, what a great deal of information. I love the tools you use and that shampoo looks so nice. I don’t have any wigs, I’d love to find a topper someday but you make such good sense about not cleaning the hair in a tub versus a shower. That is how I’ve been cleaning my extensions. I just don’t let them sit in the tub/sink. You look beautiful and again it’s so hard to tell you are wearing a wig and what fun to be able to change up your look whenever you want to. One plus to hair loss. Hugs to you sweet lady <3

  • Taz, thank you so much for all the tips for not what to do with the wigs. It us so helpful. I knew a few of the tips but not all of the ones you told. Be safe and God bless you and your family. Thank you. Love Polly from Georgia ��

  • Taz,
    Love Love all your Videos!!!
    You brighten my day in this uncertain time!��

    Was wondering if you ever do Jon Renua human hair reviews? I am interested in several, one is Kim?

    Praying for your Son ����

    Thanks,
    Jen

  • Girl no. For 1 you shouldnt brush wet wigs. For 2 using fabric softener is wayyy better than using conditioner. And 3 is u shouldnt straighten synthetic wigs as they can melt. FAIL!

  • Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience! I’m learning a lot about wigs/toppers through your very informative videos and website. After watching your video, I have finally decided my very first purchase will most likely be a synthetic topper (I really like the Jon Renau Top Wave) to cover my thinning hair. However, I have a very large forehead and look better in bangs. Unfortunately, most synthetic toppers don’t come pre-styled with bangs and my own bangs are now very sparse. I know cutting bangs and other style changes can be made on human hair and HD wigs/toppers since you can apply heat. But what about making a small change like cutting bangs on a synthetic topper/wig? Can it be done? Will the bangs stay in place?

  • I am a wig business owner. I started wearing wigs 20 years ago I was at necessity. I started out with synthetic. I did not like the shine that most of them have. Also I was with the long hair and I did not like after wearing them that they hear actually starts the part it looked wiggy to me. The short synthetic wigs from some of the companies I’ve dealt with were fairly nice they have gotten much nicer over the years. I wear Jon Renault wigs in the human hair. What I love about them is I get them in a beautiful brunette shade I lowlight them and then I highlight in the places that I want. I do have a awesome hairdresser who styles them. Nobody knows I even have a wig on, they are breathtaking. I see your reasoning behind hot weather but I have really not had any problem with my wigs even in the summer I wear them up also. I may try my hand at Racquel Welch rewind style wig I am liking to go maybe shorter. Thank you for your video you do a lovely job.

  • Short sweet to the point. Easy to follow great outcome ima try this. This other person video was 23 min! For the same process ��

  • Hi Taz, i ‘m french and i ´m not sure of what you said about steam. Can i steam my synthetic wig whithout heat protector? It’s not a heat friendly wig. I ´m afraid to mess up my beautiful Jones wig. Thanks for your great tips ��

  • Just did this with my 20 inch ombre wig because the ends were becoming nappy. So far I’m 20 mins in after hanging it up to dry and I forgot it was a curly wig �� I was like why tf Is my wig curling ����. I’ve had it for 6 months, the ends look somewhat better but they’re still wet so we’ll see:)

  • OmG yes! I hate having the “red hue” in EVERY single color that Human hair has NO MATTER what you do to it. Annoying & disheartening in so many ways…

  • I did this with a weave and it dries in literally 10 minutes now I’m going to straighten it to get the frizzy bit out I’m now going to keep you guys updated when I’m done ❤️����

  • I had to watch this video Cos I wear Human hair Halo extensions every single day. I think synthetic looks cheap and it tangles soo badly..! I’ve tried the heat resistant and it’s trash too.. I’d love to know a seller that sells a synthetic wig that isn’t going to completely TANGLE AND RUIN WIG..!

  • I used to only buy synthetics. Because of the price. Then I discovered I could make human hair lace fronts into half wigs and I thought I’d struck gold but for crying out loud if I see one more chunk of frizz out the corner of my eye over my shoulder imma go mad lol. Also yes the color fading sucks. When I have my hair fire truck red I always buy the same synthetic half wig to match… I have around £600 worth of human hair in my wardrobe and I’m seriously thinking about just buying a few synthetics again ������ xxx

  • I am new to wigs. I have significant hair loss on the crown of my head. I would like to know some favorite brands of wigs, and the price range. I am interested in chin to shoulder length,in current hair styles. I have a Godiva Secrets lace front mono wig that I love, but thought it was spendy. I also have a Paula Young wig which I paid less then a 1/3 of the price of the Godiva Secrets wig. I am happy with both, I use them for different things. One for every day,the other for good. Who has nice synthetic wigs for under $300.00? I would love a decent topper also. Got one from Paula Young, it was terrible. I should have had it cut or thinned maybe. Help!

  • My worst boo-boo is over-combing. Gah, huge mistake. Great video! Watching your numbers grow; you deserve so many more viewers!!!

  • Really a lot of thing’s we all think about with are wig care. I aways worry when cooking about my wig and the steam from boiling or the oven heat. I have a wig that I only wear when cooking now. I have melted one when I first started wearing wigs. I learned the hard way. What is the benefit of silicone spray on are wigs? I don’t spray anything on my wigs an only use wig product’s. I have heard Amoral on the longer wigs helps cut down on the tangling. I never tried this as I am very sensitive to smells. Very bad (Allergy’s) Thank you Taz for all this great information it helps us all. Happy Easter to you and your family.❤ �� ��

  • Hey love i am fairly new to wearing wigs and still dont really understand the proper way to maintain them. For shampoo does it have to be an olive oil based? I would love some tips from you or anyone❤

  • What is the style and color of the wig you hold on the foam head when talking about how to store wigs? I love the look of that one. Please let me know!

  • Hi Taz! Thank you so much for the 10 tips of what NOT to do! Question: I leave in 3 weeks for my KS home and will be there for 6 months. I don’t want to take my winter wigs and will be leaving 10 wigs or more in Florida. The AC will be on at 80 and it’s not humid in our house. Do I leave my wigs on the foldable wig stands that I have them on? I think you’ve seen them in my videos. Thanks! XOXO

  • My hair is thinning rapidly and I desperately need a wig or full topper. My biggest problem in finding the right topper or wig is color I like you, prefer a nice medium dark brown but very ashy. So I bought my first topper from a local wig shop and ordered a human hair medium dark ash brown. It is not what I consider ash has a definite golden hue. I hate it. It was expensive and I can’t wear it and feel good about it. Even after several attempts to professionally color no one can get rid of the gold/red hue. With the popularity of ashy browns, I can’t understand why so many Wig companies offer tons of warm browns but almost no ash colored browns and if they do they are usually one flat boring shiny color which scream WIG. Can you point any of us gals that prefer a true ash brown to a company that sells that ashy color range, preferably with some subtle ashy highlighting to look natural or what type of human hair wigs will actually take color and highlighting well clearly the one I purchased did not? PS. you look fantastic in the ash brown!

  • Could you please guide me to a synthetic topper that really looks NATURAL? I am sp afraid that people would see that I am wearing “fake hair” Thanks alot!

  • Human hair is better in my opinion. Its just that synthetic hair looks too shiny and fake when I wear it. Human hair just blends naturally into the rest of my hair. I care very much whether or not people can tell I have extensions on…so I wouldn’t risk it by wearing synthetic hair pieces/wigs/extensions.

  • I have enough hair for toppers. I prefer toppers because they’re not as hot. I prefer human hair because with toppers you’re blending your own hair (I don’t have a lot at all & it’s super fine, but it still works, for now!) & it’s hard to blend synthetic with your own real hair…they don’t twist together & blend together very good. I do have synthetic wigs from when I first started my journey & they’re very nice ones, they’re just so hot & scratchy. My favorite wig I ever bought though is the wave cut by Hairdo.

  • Thank you. Really great advice. First time I wash my wig I did use the right soap but I washed it like I was washing my hair in very warm water. Now I know why I didn’t last long. Are you wearing shimmer Rw
    It’s so pretty on you. PS I took my wings out of the box put them in plastic zipped bags. And I forgot to put what the style.I learned the hard way. Have a blessed day Happy Easter❤️��❤️������

  • What a brilliant list! I’ve somehow managed to avoid ruining my wigs maybe through my vanity? ��. Thank you so much for the tips as they are very helpful.

  • Thanks! For this video -I had waist length hair and started missing it so decided I would try extensions for length yesterday! My stylist wouldn’t stop commenting how much better and how much longer human lasts -but your references/facts are a great debate for it

  • Do you know any toppers ( by Jon Renau ) that has similar coverage & style of the Blake you are wearing in this video? It looks so beautiful & I’d like something exact but just in a topper.
    Thanks, please let me know as soon as you are able & b/c I need something for the holidays…

  • Human hair toppers because I wear it to bed (satin pillowslip) and know I will forget and stick my head in the oven and ruin it-if synthetic. Want it to look more real. And good looking synthetic is very expensive and does not last that long for the money.

  • Ive been searching everywhere but can I do this with braiding hair? That hair that comes as a braid, folded in half. I use mine as attachable pigtails but its super frizzy and gets more frizzy with each use.

  • Hi Taz! Thank you for all the information you provide! You are such an inspiration! How long, on average, does a wig last? I have Raquel Welch Editors Pick, that I love and wear every day for about 10-12 hours per day. Also, have you ever reviewed or tried a Godiva Secret Wig? I’m curious how you think their wigs compare to Raquel Welch or others that you review. Thank you!

  • Just saved my daughter’s wig from going in the bin! I had no idea how to get rid of the frizz! Amazing! One happy mum and daughter! X

  • Hoppy Easter, Taz!! Now that I’m hangin’ out at home, wig cleaning should be at the top of my list!! Beats cleaning the oven(which I did yesterday). You have a safe and sane holiday!!

  • Hello I really enjoy your videos. I am thinking about getting a topper, I have thinning around my hairline, I would say about 3 inches from hairline I do have a lot of hair but right in the front you can see my scalp, my hair is about 18 inches, I was wanting your opinion if you prefer toppers with lace front or without lace and which topper you like the best.

  • 90% of the people who prefer synthetic over H.H. usually don’t want to spend $$$ in a good quality H.H.

    SOME DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO STYLE HUMAN HAIR OR THEIR OWN HAIR.

    Jus a few cares about the Deoxyribonucleic acid molecules. I like the best and and I’m willing to pay for it. There are very good synthetic fibers out there but nothing like a good quality human hair piece. You can dyed, style it without fears, the blendabilty is totally different and the movement as well.

    I own 100+ hair pieces, 95% of them human hair. I’ve been curious about hair pieces since I was 7 years old and started wearing them since I was 13 and I’m in my 40’s, so believe me I know what I’m talking about. Synthetic doesn’t last too long but there are so many ways to restore human hair.

    Nothing like real 100% human hair for me.

    And yes, I have abundant, long natural bio hair but as I’ve mentioned before, been obsessed with hair pieces, heels and sparkling stuff since I was so young.

  • Hey, I thought we were friends!��The hot sun! Well, I hope by mid-summer, we’ll be able to get some sun, huh?��I have my yard, but a little beach time sure sounds fun! Have a great week, honey! Blessings, Liz��

  • I love human hair. I get silk tops with lace front kind, so the look is very natural. I find that every wig needs customization. They are usually too full for my tiny head, so I take out a lot of hair from the hairline to make it more believable. I enjoy the feel of human hair and the fact that it’s not shiny. It’s true, they do need some styling time, but I don’t do too much to mine, aside from curling bangs to the side and I wear at least 16 inch hair. I would like to try synthetic hair like Jon renau, but I’m a little scared about the upkeep. I had synthetic hair extensions years ago and they required a lot of washing in fabric softener and straightening to look and feel nice.

  • Synthetic all the way, I love it so much. I can throw my hair on, run a comb threw it and be done with my hair in under 5 minutes. Plus, it looks so real that I get compliments on my hair weekly and people asking me where I get my hair done.

  • Thank you for replying, can you tell me your synthetic brands that are better quality? Also I agree with everyone you look so pretty, makeup and hair all on point….

  • I purchased a wig for n Sunday, future blend, up to 400 degree heat is allowable. it has began shedding,tangling and knatting. I’m so frustrated. I guess I will try the boiling water method. I’ve done a co wash and boiling water on other synthetic wigs and they held up. I dont put a lot of product on it. I’m frustrated. any advice? Thanks.

  • I know I’m a good two years late but I tried this and it actually worked! I was abit scared I would melt it but I followed all of the steps and now my wig looks just as good as it did the day I bought it!

  • I can afford to have either, and have a full head of long bio hair, and I prefer synthetic because I like the ease of style with synthetic plus humidity makes HH friz. I wear wigs because it’s so much fun to have a different style with my changing moods.

  • You can flat iron the ends too… that makes them silkier. And I wash synthetic wigs in “hot” water, with a little suave conditioner. This makes them softer, silkier, and it smells good.

  • Thank you for taking your time to share this valuable information about talking care of our wigs.  I’m  a wig wearer and some times I feel self conscious (embarrassed )  when I transition from length and color wigs at the work place (teacher).  As a wig wearer yourself how do you keep your pretty  head up?
