Step 1: Detangle
Before you wash, make sure you carefully detangle the hair using a wide tooth comb. Start from ends and work toward the root to decrease shedding.
Step 2: Rinse
Use lukewarm water and rinse from roots to ends. Do not soak as this can lead to tangling. Tip: If your wig is curly, try leaving the hairnet on
Step 3: Shampoo
Loosen shampoo in your hands and work through the hair. Distribute a small amount of shampoo evenly throughout the hair. Tip: Use circular motions to clean the cap
Step 4: Condition
A) For synthetic hair: Spray leave-in conditioner from the mid-shaft to the ends. Tip: Avoid the root or knots B) For human hair: Leave in for a few minutes before rinsing. Do NOT apply conditioner to the root. Tip: If dry or damaged, use a deep conditioner
Step 5: Rinse
Let lukewarm water flow in the same direction of the hair to avoid tangling. Squeeze and press the hair; do NOT wring. Tip: Towel blot to remove excess water
Step 6: Dry
A) For synthetic hair: Air dry on a folding wig stand Tip: Gently part the hair with a comb before wig dries B) For human hair: Blow dry about 80% and then round brush until smooth
The Sure Grip is a hypoallergenic comfort liner designed to cushion and comfort. Perfect for sensitive scalps, the Sure Grip will relieve pressure points around your head, preventing pressure headaches caused by extended wear or improper fit, while securing your wig in place for a reliable fit. One important fact: This product works best when you place it on the hair. if you need a wig cap, you can push the wig cap back a bit to make sure the sure grip makes contact with your hair... if you do need a wig cap.... it works better on the mesh cap. It will definitely slip off a nylon wig cap. The Sure Grip is easy to clean, self-healing if punctured, and non-allergenic. The Velcro® adjustment fits up to 24" circumference. This band is mainly for comfort to relieve pressure from the wig cap. If your wig is a little loose... it can add that extra security to keep it in place!
Make sure you put the Velcro attachment area at the back of your head for best results. This is for average or large size wigs. Unfortunately, this will be too big for petite size heads.
