How to wash a synthetic wig.

Aftercare is essential for maintaining your Lush Wig. We want you to maintain its life and keep it looking healthy.

what you will need

Wide tooth comb
A bowl of warm water.
A wig shampoo, an alternative to these specialist types; would be a baby shampoo as they are mild.
Conditioner or leave in conditioner.
Cold water for final rinse
A towel
Wig stand (optional)

note: never use boiling water as the intense heat can take out its style (like curls or waves) and weaken the wig fibers.


Start by combing the wig to remove any knots.

Fill the bowl with warm water and add a 50p size of shampoo to water, give it a swoosh.
Place your wig in the water, leave for 5 mins to soak and let the shampoo do its thing.

Use gentle squeezes but ever rub the hair in a scrubbing fashion as this will just damage the wig.

Rinse the wig with cold water, ensuring all shampoo suds are gone.


A wig conditioner can be applied to the hair, to keep it soft and supple and help with detangling.
Apply a 50p size of conditioner and work through the hair.
Rinse with cold water to remove the product.

A leave-in conditioner can be sprayed into the hair and combed through. It can also work wonders for de-tangling your wig in-between washes.

Note: Never brush a wet wig as this will cause breakage.


For drying the wig, never wring out water as this will cause damage.
Squeeze out excess water and wrap in a towel. A microfibre towel is very good for this.

Put your wig onto a wig stand and leave to dry, or if you don’t have one; leave on the towel to dry flat.

Heat styling a synthetic wig

Lush wigs have a good variety of different styles to offer. However, achieving a different look or adding some extra definition for a special occasion, often involves heat styling, which can be intimidating for wig owners. Lets guide you through the process of heat styling a wig like a pro while prioritising its health and longevity.

Heat styling and synthetic Wigs

Heat-friendly synthetic wigs are made with special fibers that can withstand low to medium heat, providing flexibility in styling without causing damage.

Invest in Quality Heat Styling Tools

Investing in quality heat styling tools is crucial to achieving the best results while minimising potential damage. Opt for ceramic or tourmaline-coated heating tools that distribute heat evenly and reduce the risk of hot spots that could harm the wig fibers. Adjustable temperature settings are also essential, allowing you to customize the heat up to 140c and never above this setting.

Always Use Heat Protection

Before applying any heat to your wig, always use a heat protectant product specifically designed for wigs. These products form a protective barrier, shielding the wig fibers from direct contact with the heat. Be sure to apply the heat protectant evenly and sparingly to avoid any unwanted buildup.

Test Heat on a Small Section

Before fully heat styling your wig, conduct a patch test on a small, inconspicuous section to determine the wig’s reaction to heat. Set your hot tool to the lowest temperature and gently apply it to the chosen section.

Use Low to Medium Heat Settings

To ensure the longevity of your wig, always use a heat setting of 140°C (284°F) or under on your styling tools. High temperatures can lead to irreversible damage, causing the fibers to lose their luster and bounce. Be patient and work in small sections, as it may take longer to style your wig, but it’s worth preserving its quality.

Embrace the Right Styling Techniques

Whether you’re curling, straightening, or creating waves, adopt the right styling techniques for the best results. When curling, use a larger barrel to achieve loose, natural-looking curls. For straightening, glide the flat iron gently through the wig, avoiding tugging or pulling on the fibers.

Allow Sufficient Cooling Time

After heat styling, allow your wig sufficient time to cool down before handling it further. This cooling period helps the hairstyle set and reduces the risk of disrupting the curls or waves prematurely. Just use some bobbie pins to hold in place, and once cooled: remove.

Heat styling a wig doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Armed with the right knowledge and tools, you can create stunning hairstyles while maintaining the health and integrity of your wig. Remember Lush wigs are heat friendly premium synthetic hair. With patience and practice, you’ll become a master at heat styling, transforming your wig into a canvas for endless styling possibilities!
