Whether it’s a wig or one’s own natural hair, the hair will receive an injury every time it goes through heat setting. After receiving the injury, the cuticle of the hair will be damaged, so the durability of the hair will become worse. Curly hair tends to dry, split and tangle more easily than straight hair.
  • Your curly hair is not conducive to the moisturizing of natural oils secreted by your scalp. Moreover, when you use maintenance conditioner and shampoo for cleaning and maintenance, it is easy to do incomplete cleaning and maintenance.
  • If you use a curly wig, the hair of the wig is completely moisturized by no natural oil, so you need to use conditioner and essential oil in time and more frequently for maintenance. However, if you use too much conditioner, it will also cause accumulation of styling products, which will affect the maintenance of your hair and even hurt your hair.
