    How Often Should You Fully Remove Your Hair System, Deep Clean It and Fit It Back On?

    Did you know that it's absolutely something you can do at home and don't even have to go to a salon to do it?

    Save yourself $$$'s by cleaning and re-fitting your hair system yourself. Once you have learned the trick you will be able to clean it and fit it over and over. This adds up to some serious savings over the years from not having to visit a salon each month and simply replacing your hairpiece toupee periodically with Lordhair. Read on to find out how to clean a lace wig or a thin skin wig.


    How Often Should You Wash a Hair System?

    In general, most people who wear men's toupees may remove them and wash them every 1-2 months. Of course, this does not mean you don't wash it! You must wash a men's toupee like you do your own hair as sweat from the head still emanates from the scalp. Excess sweat can cause the glue to debond, so frequent washing for men who sweat a lot can help it last longer.

    In addition to a full hair system clean and wash along with your body in the shower every day, or every other day, you can also do a weekly 10-minute front clean-up. A quick lift, clean and glue at the front is usually enough to keep you feeling fresh each week until you remove it for a full clean after 1 or 2 months, where it's advised to take it off completely and give it a thorough clean.

    The most popular type of wig is a thin skin wig, so in this blog, we will show you how to clean a thin skin toupee, but it can apply equally for learning how to wash a lace front wig.

    This will help you to push the hairpiece down and bond with your skin, whilst not pulling one area out of place underneath your fingers as the towel helps to spread the force area.


    Step 6: Set the men's toupee with a detangler spray
