How to Care for Raquel Welch Wigs

by Tameka McSpadden

Raquel Welch wigs are well made, long lasting, and perfect for any occasion. To get the most use out of your Raquel Welch wigs, it is important to take proper care of them. With the correct products and care, your Raquel Welch wigs will look like new each time you wear one of them.

Items you will need

  • Wig comb and brush
  • Wig cap
  • Wig stand
Step 1

Use only wig combs and wig brushes to style your wigs. Wig brushes and combs are made with special rubber endings that will protect Raquel Welch wigs from damage. Using regular combs and brushes leads to splitting, which will give your wigs a fuzzy appearance.

Step 2

Use a wig cap during each wear. While Raquel Welch wigs can be worn directly over the scalp, natural oils from the scalp will make the lace netting of the wig dirty. Wear a wig cap consistently to reduce the number of times you need to wash your wigs. The less you wash your wigs the longer they will last.

Step 3

Store your Raquel Welch wigs on a wig stand whenever they are not in use. Keeping your wigs on a wig stand will help prevent tangles and help your wigs stay fresh, thus extending their life. Place wig stand in an area that is dry with a moderate temperature.

Step 4

Condition your Raquel Welch wigs sparingly with approved products, which can be found on Raquel Welch's hairuwear.com website. When your wigs start to look dull or dry, spray them with conditioning products manufactured or recommended by Raquel Welch.

Step 5

Wash your Raquel Welch wigs as needed. It is best to wash your wigs after every ten uses to remove products or odors that may have accumulated. When washing your Raquel Welch wigs, use 1/2 cap of the recommended shampoo.

Tips

  • It is important not to use too many products on your wigs so you don't have to wash them often.
