Hair brushes & combs for wigs
How do I brush my wig?
When your wig has been out all day or night, it will require a brush just to remove any knots and tangles, and keep it in good shape.
Never brush or comb a wet wig as synthetic hair is weaker when wet.
Always detangle a wig first.
When detangling, always start from the ends and work your way up towards the roots, gentle as you go, to avoid tugging or breakage.
Never use a nylon bristle brush, nylon fibers can be too harsh on synthetic fibers and may create more static.
For curly styles a wide tooth comb is recommended or simply using your fingers, as brushing will brush out the shape of the curls into fluffy waves.
If you have to brush the curls, you can manipulate those curls with your fingers to separate them or twist around your fingers so they fall into the curly shape they were. But remember only brush a curly wig at your own risk.
Wide Tooth Comb
A large wide tooth comb is good for all kinds of styles to keep you looking groomed, always starting at the bottom and working your way up to the top. Being gentle and careful 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.
The Tangle Teezer
This specially designed two-tiered teeth brush, detangles hair easily with minimum breakage or damage. Suitable for all lengths and types of styles. But use it with caution on curls! These are advertised to use on wet hair, but please please remember this is not the case for synthetic hair! Always detangle your wig first before washing.
