The Detangle Kit:
When used properly, the Detangle Wigs Kit can restore and mostly renew your synthetic wig. The kit works best if you begin using the kit correctly on a regular schedule. Synthetic hairs are simply tiny plastic fibers that have the texture and appearance of human hair. Everybody who has hair knows and 'expects' their hair to tangle, and that a reasonable amount of maintenance is needed daily to keep their hair looking good. If the hair has been damaged it will lead to more tangles and most people know that they will lose a few hairs each day. Yet, they do not worry about losing that small amount of hair each day due to the fact that they know the hair will grow back. Sadly, hair obviously will not grow back on a wig, so care should be taken to not damage or pull out synthetic hair.
Synthetic hair is also susceptible to damage. The damage is similar to human hair damage with the exception of split ends. Synthetic hair can be stretched and broken with excessively hard brush strokes and by using a vent type plastic brush. When the synthetic hair gets dry and frizzled it tangles just as human hair does. The main problem lies in that synthetic hair cannot be repaired with protein based products made for human hair. Synthetic hair can only be repaired with the correct amount of heat, Reclaiming Conditioner, and using proper brushing techniques.
Friction caused by the hair's contact with the skin and clothing is the primary source of tangles. Your wig will tangle more when you are active than when idle. The synthetic hair will also tangle more when in contact with rough clothing textures than smooth textures. For example, wool will cause more tangles than leather or silk. The DVD within this kit shows and explains all the techniques.
