Kinky Curly Full Lace Wigs...Washing

As kinky curly textured hair can be prone to tangling when washed, the better method to wash your lace wig is the upright method. At the end of washing instead of using a towel, use a wide tooth comb, then allow the lace wig to drip dry in an upright position. This method:

  • allows you use your fingers to detangle (or a wide tooth comb)
  • means that the hair isn't rubbed or massaged in a way that creates tangling.
  • means that the each of the small sections of hair that make up each lock of curls can reform.

Using an anti-frizz serum when the hair is wet is also a good idea but not mandatory.

Kinky Curly Full Lace Wigs...Deep Conditioning


The thing to remember about kinky curly textured hair is that for the most part, the hair has been processed for texture. The chemicals used have already altered and therefore weakened the structure of the hair and so conditioning the hair strengthens it.

Your remy or non-remy human hair kinky curly hair should be deep conditioned at least once every two weeks (but once a week is even better). If you deep condition frequently enough, you won't need to use a leave-in conditioner which will preserve the hair as leave-in conditioners dry out hair and cause it to become brittle (as the protein contained in the conditioner absorbs the moisture from the hair). 

  • Spray the conditioner onto the hair
  • Use a wide tooth comb to distribute the conditioner
  • Place the wig in a plastic bag (that has an airtight seal like a freezer bag)
  • Wrap the bag in a heat pack.
  • Place a towel around the heat pack and wig and leave for 30 minutes.
    If you don't have a heat pack, then place the sealed plastic bag in a bowl of hand-hot water.
  • Afterwards rinse the wig using the upright method outlined above and moisturize following the tips below.

Kinky Curly Full Lace Wigs...Moisturizing

Moisturizing kinky curly hair when the hair is still wet is the best way for the hair to reap the full benefits of moisturizer as the water will seal in the oil needed to keep the hair lubricated and soft.

Keep your kinky curly hair nourished by using vegetable or nut oils (like argan oil, coconut oil and almond oil). 

  • Spray the moisturizer onto the wet hair
  • Use a wide tooth comb to distribute the moisturizer
  • Leave to air dry
  • Avoid any products that contain mineral oil (e.g. petroleum jelly)

When the hair has dried, if your kinky curly lace wig still seems dry then spraying a light mist of a glycerine and water mix (at a rate of 10% glycerine and 90% water) will help the hair retain moisture without adding any heaviness to the hair or creating any frizz.
