A lot of women turn to wigs to give them a different look without having to commit to a drastic hairstyle change. And while wigs are a great way to switch up your style, they can also be a lot of work.

Synthetic wigs, in particular, require special care to keep them looking their best. If your synthetic wig is starting to look a little lackluster, don't worry—there's an easy way to refresh it.

Read on to learn how.

What You'll Need

Before you start refreshing your synthetic wig, there are a few things you'll need to gather. These include:
-Wig brush or comb
-Wig shampoo or gentle clarifying shampoo
-Spray bottle filled with water
-Hair dryer (optional)
-Synthetic wig conditioner (optional)

Step One: Brush Out Your Wig

The first step is to brush out your wig with a wig brush or comb. This will help remove any tangles or knots and get the wig ready for shampooing. Be sure to be gentle so you don't damage the fibers of the wig.

Step Two: Shampoo Your Wig

Next, it's time to shampoo your wig. You'll want to use a wig shampoo or a gentle clarifying shampoo so as not to damage the fibers. Wet your wig thoroughly, then apply the shampoo evenly throughout. Gently massage the scalp area for one minute before rinsing thoroughly with cool water. Avoid hot water, as this can damage synthetic fibers. Repeat if necessary.
If your wig is particularly dirty, you may need to let it soak for 5-10 minutes before rinsing. Just be sure not to let it soak for too long, as this can also damage the fibers.
It's also important not to scrub your wig too vigorously when shampooing, as this can cause the fibers to become matted and tangled. Be gentle!
Once you've finished shampooing, use a towel to blot your wig dry—don't rub it, as this can cause frizzing.

You can also use a hair dryer on a low setting if you need to speed up the drying process. Just be careful not to overdo it, as too much heat can damage synthetic fibers.

Step Three: Optional – Condition Your Wig

Once your wig is dry, you have the option of applying conditioner. Again, be sure to use a conditioner that's specifically designed for synthetic wigs so as not to damage the fibers.

Apply evenly throughout and gently massage into the scalp area before rinsing thoroughly with cool water. You can either air dry or use a hair dryer on a low setting—just be careful not to overdo it!

Step Four: Revitalize Your Wig

With your wig clean and fresh, it's time for the final step. Revitalize it with water mist from a spray bottle evenly throughout the hair strands until they're damp but not soaked through—you don't want your wig dripping wet!

Once you've done that, lightly shake out any excess water and allow your wig to air dry completely before styling as usual.

Revitalizing your synthetic wig is quick and easy! Just follow these simple steps and you'll have refreshed hair in no time.
