CAN WIGS BE PERMED?
Most human hair wigs can be chemically permed. The darker colors work best. The hair in light colored wigs has been bleached, so attempting to perm this hair can be risky. We recommend that human hair wigs be permed only by professionals who are experienced with and understand the process.
Human-synthetic blends can be chemically permed with a special process. After using a chemical perm on the wig, the synthetic fiber requires steaming. The curl pattern in most synthetic wigs has been set at the factory by roller setting and then placing in a large steaming cabinet, but a simple hand-held clothing steamer may be used successfully on wigs which have been set in rollers or perm rods.
