A conditioner is one sure way to keep a wig shiny. Gently apply it to the wig and wash it every now and then. This helps to maintain its texture.

To wash a wig properly immerse it in lukewarm water and add a minimal amount of shampoo in it, then gently shake it while it’s still in the water. Do this a few more times and thereafter, rinse in cold water until the water comes out clean from the wig. Pat gently with a towel and allow to dry.
Note: Don’t scrub a wig or make use of harsh chemicals in the process of washing it. This can damage the wig, and in some cases, beyond repair.
