How Often Should You Wash a Human Hair Wig?

When To Wash A Human Hair Wig

You should wash a human hair wig about every 6-8 weeks, or 7-10 wears. Many people who wear human hair wigs daily, find this to routine to be successful in cool weather, and may wash more frequently in hot weather.


If you use styling products like the shaping creme or hairspray on your wig every day, you'll need to wash and revitalize your wig more often than those who do not use products. Also, if you live in a very rainy or humid climate, you may also need to wash your wig more often.

Washing Wigs

Keep in mind the difference in human hair wigs and synthetic wigs! Always use the right products for your wig type!

Because wigs do not have the benefit of natural oils like our own hair, the less you wash – the better! But wear your wig too long without washing it and it can look old and dingy. To refresh and wash your wigs (whether synthetic or human hair), use BeautiMark brand of shampoos, conditioners, and other styling products. 

More Wig Care Tips

Finally, here are some things to remember that everyone with a human hair wig needs to know:

1) Use hot air to help dry your wig sparingly. Though many wigs nowadays can be heat styled, it is always much safer during wig care to let them air dry.

2) Don’t shower with your wig on. Though it may seem like a time saver, the heat of the water may damage the netting and will break down the bonds of the hair to the cap.

3) Wig care takes time, so make sure that when it is time to wash your wig, you have time carved out to do it. It is also important to remember not to neglect your natural hair. Taking a day off can not just protect your wig but provide relief for your scalp and natural hair.
