Hair brushes & combs for wigs
What combs and brushes to use to detangle a synthetic wig?
A wig will require a brush just to remove any knots and tangles to keep your hair looking in top condition.
First lets define the good from the bad;
Here is a list a wig sins:
1. Never brush or comb a wet wig as synthetic hair is weaker when wet.
2. Always start from the ends and work your way up towards the roots, gentle as you go, to avoid tugging or breakage.
3. Beware of nylon brushes as these can create static with synthetic wigs.
Wide Tooth Comb
A large wide tooth comb is good for all kinds of styles to keep your wig under control. Always start at the bottom and work your way up to the top. Be gentle to not to tug at the hair to avoid breakage.
The Steel/metal Bristle Brush
A metal prong brush has steel or metal bristles that are smoother and kinder to synthetic wig fibres. They also come in anti-static varieties.
The Loop Brush
A loop brush is just like a hair brush, however the bristles are looped, this design is made to avoid pulling the wefts in the cap and to avoid snagging the lace. The looped bristles can brush through the lengths to smooth the hair.
