Bold Curls for Beginners - 3 Ways to Maintain Your Wig's Bouncy Curls


Curls are seen as beautiful but wild, and are avoided mostly by those who prefer simple styles. If you’re a beginner to curly hair wigs or curls in general, it may seem like a lot to manage. Don’t worry sis! We’re here to help you manage those curls so you can step out in style.

There are so many styles that you can wear with curls, like the classic ponytail or a messy bun, but a lot of women tend to choose straight over curls for a few reasons: 

  • Curls are seen as less professional than straight hair. 
  • Curls are hard to manage and maintain
  • Curly styles are hard to get just right. 

If you’ve ever thought of these reasons, we’re here to help you bust through those limiting beliefs and take the plunge into curly! Curly hair wigs can be worn by any woman and look great. They're perfect for women who like to change their look from day to day, and try new ways of wearing their hair.

Feeling a little overwhelmed? Not too sure if you’ll be able to maintain your curly hair wig? If you’ve ever felt like trying a curly style hair wig, we’re here with 3 tips to maintain your curls and keep your hair looking fresh and bouncy! 



Use the right wash routine

All hair needs the natural oils that our scalp produces in order to maintain its shine and luster. With human hair wigs, these wear over time, but using the right methods for washing and treating your hair can leave it looking like new. 

When it comes to washing your curly hair wig, washing too often can not only strip the hair of it’s natural oils, but can also damage your curls. The general rule is to wash your wig every six to eight weeks, or every seven to ten wears. Of course, this will depend on your usage so maintain a routine that works for you.

Make sure to use chemical free shampoos (preferably curl enhancers) and use leave-in conditioners to keep your hair looking soft and full. Cold water is best with curly hair wigs but lukewarm or room temperature is fine as well. 



Avoid brushing your Curly Hair Wig

It may be tempting to brush your curly hair wig, but this can often damage curls especially when wet. Instead use a large toothed comb and your fingers to gently detangle hair. Using a good conditioner will also make hair more supple and easier to comb through, so tangling shouldn’t be an issue. 

The Deep Curly Headband Wig from Protect Our Hair is soft and full hair that’s easy to style, so you don’t have to worry about needing to brush often to detangle. Remember that wet hair is more prone to breakage, so a quick run through with your fingers is usually all you need after a wash. 



Style with moderate to low heat, if necessary

You’ve already got a naturally curly style with your wig. This means that it’s not necessary to use heat when styling your hair. The Deep Curly Headband Wig is already styled and ready for use. 

If you do want to try a few different things with your wig though, using heat in moderation is recommended. High temperature can damage the natural curly texture of your wig, and should never be used near the roots. If using heat to style, use a heat protectant spray to keep your curls intact.



Your curls define you and the style that you want to show to the world. We’re here to take you from not knowing if you’re ready to try this out to being a raving fan of all things bold and curly. The Deep Curly Headband Wig from Protect Our Hair is the first step to getting you on the way to gorgeous curls that really show off your unique style!

Curly hair is amazingly gorgeous and a lot easier to maintain and style than most people think. Are you ready to step into the curly squad? Head over here and try the style out for yourself. Happy styling Beauties!
