How to Keep Your Hair System or Wig Smelling Fresh

Sleeping person with smelly hair.
Having a hair system or wig can be a great way to boost your confidence and look your best. But if your hair system or wig is starting to smell bad, it's time to take steps to prevent any unpleasant odors. Here are some tips on how to keep your hair system or wig smelling fresh and clean.

 Keep It Clean

The first step in preventing an unpleasant smell from developing in your hair system or wig is to ensure you keep it clean. Regularly washing your hair system with mild shampoo and warm water can help remove dirt, oil, and product buildup that can lead to bad smells. When washing your wig, it's essential to handle it gently so that the natural oils from your scalp don't damage its fibers. If you have a synthetic wig, make sure you use a specific shampoo for synthetic wigs that won't strip the fibers of their color. After cleaning your hair system or wig, dry it thoroughly before putting it back on, as wetness can also cause odor issues. The team at Your Hair Matters has developed the Yours™ line of hair care products that includes a shampoo and conditioner that is designed specifically to strengthen and protect hair systems.

Choose Non-Toxic Products

Using non-toxic products on your hair system or wig is key for avoiding unpleasant smells. Choose styling products that are free of harsh chemicals like sulfates and parabens, which can cause foul odors over time. Also, avoid using too much styling product, which can also contribute to odor problems. Applying just enough product will allow you to achieve the look you want while minimizing any potential odors caused by product buildup. The Yours™ line of custom-formulated products also includes an entire suite of styling products.

Let It Breathe

To keep your hair system or wig smelling fresh, make sure you let it "breathe" every once in a while by not wearing it for several days at a time. Taking regular breaks from wearing your hair system will give the natural oils from your scalp a chance to recirculate and will prevent any buildup of dirt, oil, and sweat that could lead to bad odors over time.

Keeping your hair system or wig smelling fresh is essential for maintaining its quality over time and ensuring you always look and feel good when wearing it. By following these simple tips—regularly cleaning with non-toxic products and letting it breathe occasionally—you'll be able to avoid unpleasant odors quickly! With these strategies in mind, you'll be able to enjoy all the benefits of having a beautiful head of hair without having any worries about bad smells!
