CAN I USE A CURLING IRON ON MY WIG?
A HOT curling iron may be used on any HUMAN HAIR wig, but some types of wig hair are more difficult to curl with an iron. After you set the curl with the iron, clip each curl and let it cool completely before brushing out and styling. You may also try wet-setting on rollers and using a hair dryer on "high" to set the curl.
SYNTHETIC wig hair is different. A curling iron set on WARM or LOW may be used, but a spray conditioner or even plain water should be misted onto the hair to protect it before heat is applied. A HOT iron will cause the fiber to go limp or even frizz (melt) it. Once a wig is frizzed, it's life is over.
If your iron gets too hot for the fiber (the hair will go limp), mist the barrel with a little water to cool it down, and then proceed with the curling process.
