How to care for artificial hair

Before you start caring for a chignon, a wig or some other product made of artificial hair, you should know exactly what fibers they contain. If it is impossible to determine anything else, do the following: cut a thin strand and test it with fire.If the fibers are natural, they should melt and smell specifically. If artificial, they burn very quickly, and there is practically no smell.

In any case, such hair must be combed. This is a mandatory care procedure. Be sure to regularly wash such hair. For example, wigs made of artificial fibers are not polluted as quickly as natural fibers, so you can wash them less often (once every two or three months). Wash natural hair more often.
