One of the things that bother most people who wear wigs is that they tend to tangle. But before you throw away a tangled wig, it is important to note that tangling will happen. The good news is it can be very easy to detangle a wig when you know the proper processes. In this guide we share with you our best tips and tricks on how to untangle a curly wig or a straight one.
The first thing you need to do in any process is collect the tools you will need. In this case, you will need a hair brush, a streamer and a curling iron or flat iron depending on whether the wig is curly or straight.
Begin by placing the wig on a mannequin head to secure it before you being the detangling process. Divide the wig into sections, with only a handful of hair in each section. Use your fingers to comb through each section. It is not a good idea to use a brush in this initial stage as it may cause the wig to tangle up even further.
When your fingers get stuck in the strands, try to open then gently without applying too much pressure to the stands. If you are unable to break through a certain section of the wig, or you come across a section that has formed a ball, just cut it out. The loss of a few stands will not make that much of a difference.
When your fingers can go through the wig's strands without getting stuck, it is time to move on to the brush. The best way to brush the wig is to start from the ends and move upwards, but you should brush a very small section of hair to avoid tangling the hair again. The wig may look frizzy at first, but that is normal and only means that the detangling process is working.
The brush should remove all the tangles in the strands are not you are ready to restore the wig's original style. Depending on whether the wig was straight or curly, wet it lightly and then use a curler or flat iron to smooth out the strands and get that clean, smooth look. The following are some of the tips to keep in mind when detangling the wig:
