Caring for a natural hair wig is similar to caring for your own hair.
The maintenance method is the same as explained for curly hair. However, special care should be taken with the products used. Opt for natural shampoos preferably. In addition, think about care: moisturizing or nourishing masks and conditioners to close the scales of the hair, in the same way as you would for your hair.
Finally, in the case of a natural hair wig, it is important to:
Preferably air-dry it naturally, but you can use a hairdryer if you're in a hurry.

How To Care For My Synthetic Wig?
Caring for a synthetic wig is slightly different than for a natural wig. Indeed, it is preferable to opt for treatments specifically adapted to synthetic strands, and rather than lukewarm water, opt for cold water so as not to alter the fiber.
In addition, there is no need to use care products like natural hair, the fiber being synthetic, it will not derive the expected benefits. Finally, regarding the drying and appearance of the wig, the fiber being synthetic it will not withstand heat sources, so let the wig air dry. Since the shape is "set," it will return to its original appearance after drying, so you don't need to use styling products either.
Note that it is still important to wash your wig at least every 2 or 3 weeks. But to adopt such a spaced washing rhythm, you will need to wear a cap that you wash in the evening.
How To Shine Your Wig?
Similar to natural hair, wigs can look dull. In the case of synthetic hair, since the fiber is naturally shiny in general, it most likely means that your wig is coming to an end ... In the case of natural hair, this means it needs to be hydrated. So, to give your wig more shine, you can opt for a spray (hydration phase) and a light oil, such as argan oil or jojoba oil (sealing phase).
