To curl your heat-resistant synthetic wig, you may want to gather the following tools:

  • Curling Iron
  • Hair Clip
  • Wig Stand
  • Wig Comb
  • A Spray Bottle Filled with Clean, Cool Water

Step 1: Brush & Detangle

To begin the process, put your wig on the wig stand and brush it with a wig brush or wood-tooth comb. Detangle the knots so that you' ll get these luscious bouncy curls. For some tips on detangle, you can refer to this blog.

Step 2: Section

Divide your hair into sections with hair clips. If you want small curls you can separate your hair into many sections. If you want large curls you can separare it into fewer sections. During that process, you can set your curling iron, to no more than 350 degrees.

Step 3: Spray

Use a spray bottle bottle to spritz each section of hair until it's completely wet, but not dripping with water. These sprays serve as a defense against melting and can help it hold the curl.

Step 4: Curl

Curl each portion of your hair. Simply take a section of your hair and place the curling iron at the end of the hair. Wind it around the curling iron and hold the kit in place until the hair begins to feel warm. Then release the hair from the curling iron. You can also hold the curl in your hand till it cools.

Continue doing with the rest section of your hair and the others on the sides and at the back. If you want to get a tighter curl, pin the curl in place against your head until it cools completely. This will also help the curl hold its shape longer.

Step 5: Adjust

Once complete you can lightly work your fingertips through the style and manipulate the curls to your desired style. Or you can lightly spray the entire wig with wig styling spray at this point if desired.
