Wearing a wig will not damage your own hair!
Some women feel more comfortable wearing a wig cap for security reasons. A wig cap can also be used by those with long hair that needs to be secured back.
When cooking, please be sure not to open the oven, dish washer or BBQ, while wearing your wig. Also, try not to expose the wig to any other heat source, such as a blow dryer, curling iron, flat iron, or even the clothes dryer, etc.
The two ear tabs must be centered; the wig should sit right at your natural hairline. It should be worn behind the ears, not over them. Pull the nape of the neck all the way down. Tuck excess hair behind your ears. Always tease the front of the hairline down towards your face and trim bangs if needed. Basically, tease the hairs in the direction you desire.
First, gently pick or comb wig out thoroughly before washing it. Then wet wig completely with cold water, work shampoo in and leave in for 5 minutes. Then, rinse it out with cold water and thoroughly blot dry with a towel. Follow with conditioner; leave it in for 5 minutes, rinse and towel dry. Leave the wig on a towel or wig stand to dry over night at room temperature. Do not comb or brush your wig when itís wet! When it is completely dry, simply brush into your desired style.

2. Friction from couch or pillows may cause the hair to tangle (use a silk pillowcase).
3. ALWAYS rinse root area well. Conditioners or shampoos remaining at the root area will cause bacteria to grow, ultimately, the hair will break off.
4. Hot or very warm water will damage the hair shaft, causing the hair to tangle and look dry. Always use cold water.
5. When you remove your wig, place it on a wig stand to maintain the shape.
