By Stephan Serrano 2020-5-19

A bob wig looks great when it is straight. But we all know that after a while, a straight bob wig can lose is texture and some strands can fall out of place. In this case, it may become necessary to straighten the bob wig to get it looking great again. You may also need to straighten the bob wig if you had styled in into waves or curls and now you need to go back to the original straight texture.

In this guide, we are going to share with you a few simple steps that will show you how to keep your bob wig straight or how to straighten a bob wig if it is not already straight.

How to Straighten a Bob Wig

Before we share with you the simple steps to help you straighten the wig, it is important to note that this method will only work for human hair. The following are some of things you will need to straighten a bob wig;

  • A Wig Stand
  • Hair clips
  • A Flat iron
  • The Bob wig

Now that you've collected the things you need, follow these simple steps to straighten the wig;

Step 1: Place the Wig on your Head and Preheat the Flat Iron

Begin by placing the wig on your head and adjusting it how you want it to look when the process is complete. Then pre-heat the flat iron to a desired temperature. To protect the hair on the wig, we recommend going for a medium temperature.

Step 2: Make Sure the Wig is Dry

Most people attempt to straighten a wig soon after washing. If you just washed the wig, it is imperative that you make sure the wig is completely dry. If it is still very wet, it may be a good idea to let it air dry for a few hours or use a blow dryer to speed up the process.

Step 3: Section and Secure the Wig

When the wig is completely dry, secure two-thirds of the wig out of the way using hair clips. This will help you keep most of the hair out of the way as you straighten the wig.

Now use your finger to separate an inch of the loose hair and then make sure that the section is free from tangles before you start straightening the wig.

Step 4: Straighten the Section

Now clamp the flat iron on the section of the hair at the roots and then drag it all the way to the ends of the hair. This motion should be as done in a single motion and without stopping.

Repeat this process for all other sections. But is it important to first of all make sure that the section is tangle free before straightening. Go through the wig, one-inch section after the other until the whole wig has been straightened.

Step 5: Straighten the Middle

Once the lower section of the hair is done, clip the top third of the wig and straighten the middle section using the same procedure described above.

Step 6: Straighten the Top Third

Remove the clip from the top third of the wig and straighten the remaining section. In this final section, make sure that the part is where you want it to be. This will make it easier for you to maintain the style of the wig.

Step 7: Spray the Wig

Once you are done, remember to spray the wig with heat protectant to protect the wig from damage. You can also use hairspray if you need to.
