How to Remove that Shine From Your Synthetic Wig Using 2 Odd Ingredients

00This is pretty neat! You have heard of just using Talc (baby powder) to dull a wig‘s unwanted shine, but this method takes a little more time. Here, you will use fabric softener and talc. You can stop passing up those cute, synthetic wigs you find in the hair stores or those cosplay wigs you find online. If you don’t mind the extra work, let’s go!

You will need styling tools (flat iron, comb, scissors, product) and talc powder. Fabric softener is also needed. The brand of the softener does not matter. Lastly, you need a bucket/tub and towel. The wig head is recommended but optional.

Pull that old synthetic wig out of your closet. Flip the wig inside out completely. Measure up ONE cup of fabric softener into your bucket. Use 2-3 cups if the wig is longer. Fill the bucket with water. You only need enough to cover the wig. Submerge your wig into the water.

Let it sit for 5-7 days. Sit the bucket where no kids or animals can get to it.

After 5-7 days are up, remove the wig from the bucket. Don’t squeeze the wig out. Just let the water drain from it into the bucket. Lay the wet wig onto a towel to dry.

After it dries completely, place the wig on a wig head or your head. Iif you placed it on a wig head, pin the wig to the wig head so it does not move during styling. Coat the wig with talc powder. Comb it through. Cut and style the wig to your liking. That’s it!

This process leaves the wig looking more natural if you’ve followed the steps correctly. Yes…you’ll be proud of yourself and your wig if you did.

Better yet buy another one. Nothing’s worse then to see a shiny plastic wig.

Question: can you buy wigs suitable for a 11 yr old girl to wear…. any suggestions most welcome. Thank you.

Tasheen Lockridge

You could have someone make a custom unit for her …it’s pricey but worth it.

Audrey White

Yes you can buy one. Go into hair care stores ask if they sell wigs suitable for young ones. Or buy an adult one and take it to a hairstylist to cut in a style suitable for an 11 year old.

Julie Simmons-Collins
