How to Reuse Wig Fiber

714 Favourites
Hope this is helpful to you guys ^^ I know some of the pictures are discolored, I don't know why that happened, but I hope you can see them well enough anyway. ^,^

A few general things to remember about all wigs...

:bulletpurple: Keep your wig away from intense heat, as it will discolor and melt the fiber. This means no straightening or curling irons!!
:bulletpurple: When you're not using it, store it covered in cloth or plastic, to keep the dust off it.
:bulletpurple: Always use a comb, and NEVER a brush, to detangle your wig. Brushes work under the principle that removing loose hairs is a good thing; this is not the case with wigs, so you don't want to use a brush.
:bulletpurple: If your wig needs to be cleaned, wash it in cool water with a little Palmolive. Since caulk is waterproof, this is still safe on wigs with no-sew wefts; you'll just have to be a little more careful not to break the threads.

Is there a replacement for caulk? Where I live, caulk is not easy to find here, especially not for a cheap price.

Hi~ I'm not the person who made this tute, but I can't help but wonder where you got "chalk" from, it was never used in this tutorial Do you mean caulk? It's a different thing.

Im too new to this and thought it was a misspelling xd

I love your tutorial, but I'm a little confused by step four. When you flip over the weft and the tape, where exactly do you put the caulk, on the noncoated side of the fiber, under the tape, or on top of the tape itself? Thanks a bunch :D
