WEN

WEN FOR WIGS????????????

Started 1346589572.463 in WEN | Last reply 1346782656.5 by RuthieW

I wonder if you can use some/all of the Wen products on "human hair" wigs??? or for that matter synthetic hair............

I was thinking about tryig the spray..... I don't want to ruin the curl or hair, but wonder if you can use WEN on wigs???

I'm going thru Chemo and I will need to take care of my wig for quite awhile.... oops, I forgot, I did ask this question to them, but never got an answer..

I wouldn't recommend washing and styling a human hair wig at home.

I used to wash/sytle my wig, but that was years ago.. like in the 70's... I haven't had a wig since then, until now.... It's really the spray for the shine that I was wondering about...

Good luck with your treatments.

The folks at his salon are so friendly and informative. They even called me back once to follow up.

AuntieSoap - I think contacting Chaz studio is a great idea, I have no doubt they will give you great advice and if not WEN, advise you of the right product.

Most importantly, just wanted to send all my best wishes for a complete recovery! {#emotions_dlg.wub}

I use WEN on my wigs(human hair blend) and on my braids(synthetic and human hair). Makes the hair nice and soft. But I suggest you call the salon because I really don't take care of my wigs as well as I should.

AuntieSoap- thanks for sharing with us, and good luck.

I would be interested if you ever get a final answer on this question... my mother wears wigs exclusivly due to allopecia. I want to give her a 613 spray to use, both under the wig (too soothe her head).. and also to help with smells (sometimes the wig retains food/smoke/etc smells). But i cannot risk ruining her wig...

I will ask the wig company but i am curious if you ever hear...

thanks for asking!

If you dont mind my asking... do you wash your wigs at home?

philosophy­ addict1346712463.44784 PostsRegistered 6/14/2008Baltimore, Md

Yes, I wash my wigs at home. In fact I just washed my wig today. I let it soak in a bowl incold water and the wen fragrance of choice for the day. I leave the wig in water for about 10 minutes. Rinse with cold water. I hang the wig in the shower until it is dry/ Comb or brush to the desired style. ********** Human hair wigs require styling ( curlers or flat iron). You do not put heat on a syn wig. *********** If you are wondering why I wear wigs when I use wen on my hair, it's because I like to change my hair color from blonde to red to brunette without the commitment.

thank you for the info. i appreciate it!

just a quick clarification... you use the cleansing conditioner to wash with, right? just double checking :)

don't know about the wigs, but want to wish you luck with the chemo, both the treatments and the results.

Yes RuthieW, I use the cc. I use about 1/2 pump of the 32 oz size. I washed my wig yesterday and it looks great today !!!

Lisa Robertson was saying on Saturday that she maintained her extensions using WEN. I'm not sure what products overall, but she and Chaz did talk about the Replenishing Treatment Mist being useful.

All of my prayers and best wishes during your treatment.
