God bless the inventors of wigs. As a working mum, sometimes I get so busy and tired that there is no time to make my hair during the weekend. I do not also like spending long hours at the salon and yes I also dislike spending so much money on weaves, so I love wigs.
I carry my weaves for a timed period (couple of weeks), sadly I had to remove my weave over the weekend because it was smelly (exhaust fume) and dusty from the whole Apapa traffic stress of last week. You can read about it here. http://akaglue.com/my-ferry-experience/Sunday night I still hadn’t made my hair so I resolved to rock my wig all through the week. Then I remembered I gave out 2 of my best wigs and the only wig I had was worn out. I was desperate because it was already too late to get to the salon. I started researching on how to revive a dead wig, and was pleased to stumble on the boiling method. So here you go.
Things you need.
- Leave in conditioner / shear butter
Step 1: Detangle the wig
Step 3: Add leave in conditioner or shear butter to a pan of water and bring to boil. (I used shear butter).
Step 4: If its a synthetic wig, immerse into the pan of boiling hot water for 2-3minutes, but if its a human hair wig boil on low heat for about 15mins.
Step 5: Leave to air dry over night.
So, next time your wig has lost it’s va-va-vroom, don’t be quick to throw it away, revive it and save your self some money!
