TPE DOLLS WIG CARE
Estimated Time: 20-25 minutes • Difficulty: Easy
TPE Dolls wig care vary depending on the wig type. Principally, there are two kinds of wigs: those made of a synthetic hair base and those made entirely of natural hair (more expensive).
Our models all have premium synthetic wigs so far.
If you prefer a natural wig, keep in mind that a natural wig also requires more care & maintenance than a synthetic wig.
When you order from us, you will receive your wig well protected into a plastic bag, with paper inside as well as a protection net.
A long wide tooth metal comb is also provided with your package, as on the left picture.
TPE DOLLS WIGS DETAILS & FEATURES
Our doll’s wigs are premium quality, Full-Cap wigs.
Full-cap wigs hair are sewn into the mesh cap, leaving no gaps and providing full coverage of the hair/head underneath.
This type of wigs have the most hair, and can be hand tight with a clipping system, as shown below on the left picture.
SYNTHETIC WIGS WASHING
Just like human hair, your doll wig will get greasy over time (not as fast). In below tutorial, we will teach you how to wash your TPE Doll’s synthetic wig.
STEP 1 – DETANGLING:
If you are to carry/manipulate your doll, we recommend that you temporarily remove the wig, to prevent excessive tangling.
Before you wash, be sure to carefully detangle the hair using the wide tooth comb provided alongside with your doll.
Lightly brush through and gently remove any tangles with the comb, by repeating the movement on tangled areas. Be gentle and do not pull or drag the fiber!
STEP 2 – WASHING:
Fill in a recipient with cold water (do not use hot water, as heat damages synthetic hair fibers)
Mix a capful of shampoo into the water.
Immerse your wig and allow it to soak for a few minutes
STEP 3 – RISING:
Immerse your wig in a fresh bowl of cold wter to remove shampoo
Do NOT squeeze or wring your TPE Doll’s wig
STEP 4 – CONDITIONING:
You can use hair conditioner for extra softness if you wish.
Apply conditioner directly onto your wig, stroking downwards from roots to the tips of the hair.
Leave it rest on the wig for 4-5 minutes
Rinse by immersing the wig in fresh cold water
STEP 5 – DRYING:
You can use an hair blower if it has a cold air option on it.
Place your doll’s wig between a folded dry towel and pat it dry
Do not squeeze, rub or wring your wig while drying
STEP 6 – STYLING:
You will ideally need some sort of wig stand for greater convenience during this process.
Gently shake the wig to regain its style. Alternatively, lightly style thewig with the comb or your fingers.
Additionally, you can apply hair spray to style her hair
That’s it! Ready!
Your doll is provided with high quality synthetic wigs that can be removed for styling, cleaning, or full replacement with any other wig. You can go for cosplay wigs instead, or for a premium natural wig made out of real hair for an even more realistic effect!
HOW TO BRUSH A WIG
Because hair tangle easily when brushing a long wig, it is best to use a metal brush or comb. First of all start brushing small sections close to the hair tips.
Second, brush out sections of hair about 3 inches from the ends until they are smooth and gradually work your way up the wig towards the “scalp”.
As a result, this will avoid tangling your doll’s wig. Synthetic fiber wigs are easier to maintain than human hair wigs.
HOW TO PUT A WIG ON A DOLL
Inside the wigs there are small clips which allow you to adjust the fit accordingly on the skull.
Make the wig as tight as possible. If you would still like it to be held more securely in place, you can also use standard wig pins.
Wig pins are available from any wig shop and pin the wig directly to the skull cap.
