Steps to Cleaning a Toupee

    Before you begin cleaning your toupee hair system, make sure it is completely dry. If it is wet, allow it to air dry completely before proceeding.

Step 1: Brush the Hair

    Gently brush your toupee hair system while it is dry. A hairpiece stand is helpful in this process, as it allows you to brush the hair system carefully without snagging the base material. Be gentle, don't pull on the cap. Always check the nape of the base, as it tends to get more tangled than the rest of the hair system.

Step 2: Shampoo the Hair

    Next, apply a mild shampoo to the hair. Use a gentle, circular motion when applying the shampoo and be sure to cover the entire hair system. Rinse the shampoo out with lukewarm water.

Step 3: Condition the Hair

    Next, apply a mild conditioner to the hair. Make sure to cover the entire hair system with the conditioner. Allow the conditioner to sit on the hair for a few minutes before rinsing it out with lukewarm water.

Step 4: Rinse the Hair

    Thoroughly and gently rinse out all shampoo from top to bottom, taking care not to scrub or crunch the hair.

Step 5: Dry the Hair

    Allow the hair system to air dry completely or use a blow dryer on a low setting. Be sure to avoid using high heat, as this can damage the hair.


    Additional Steps

    Once the hair system is dry, you may want to consider applying a leave-in conditioner or hair oil to help keep the hair soft and manageable. Additionally, you may want to use a wide-tooth comb to brush out any tangles or knots.


    Cleaning Solutions

    If you’re looking for a deeper clean, you may want to consider purchasing a special cleaning solution specifically designed for toupee hair systems. These solutions are usually made with natural ingredients and are designed to gently clean the hair systems and remove any dirt, oil, and debris.

How often should I clean my hairpiece? 

Hair systems don’t need to be washed with the same frequency as natural hair might. Once or twice a week is enough; any more, and you risk drying out the hair or causing unwanted tangles.
