I love sheitals. I border on obsessing about them as much as hair… Last week, I bought a Milano pony wig; the hair was very nice. I will review the Milano Brooklyn showroom tomorrow. I will post pics of the wig I purchased; both the interior and the exterior so stay tuned…
Now that I have a wavy sheital I have several things to consider. Like how I am going to care for it? Look here, for general sheital care! Most people wash their human hair wigs with regular shampoo and conditioner. You can get away with this…however there are some things to consider. If you buy a inexpensive human hair wig in a lighter color (like blonde) most likely you are dealing with color-treated hair. Therefore you should be using a shampoo made expressly for that hair type. This also helps slow down the inevitable fading of the wig.
My personal recommendations are:
Pantene Pro-V Expressions Daily Color Enhancing Shampoo with Liquid Crystals (brunette shown)
also in black, blonde, and red, $5.99, drugstore.com
I have to consider buying shampoo for my natural hair as well. So I may be able to get away with using a shampoo for color-treated hair for my relaxed tresses!
Tomorrow, I’m going to my local beauty supply store:
wig pick, $2-$3
wig shine spray, $3
Organics Hair Mayonnaise Leave in conditioner, $4
or if I find my precious SEDAL… I’ll get that!
