I use a synthetic wig for my Mara Jade costume. It is cut in layers, the longest of which comes down to approximately 5-6 inches below my shoulders. I have worn it enough times now that it definitely needs to be washed. I have worn it for two outdoor events in the past few weeks where it was excessively rained on, and it has a slight bonfire scent from a recent party. I sprayed some Febreze on it and that took most of the fire scent out, but when the strands fall into my face I can still slightly smell it. The wig is also starting to get that dull look that normal human hair gets when dirty. The ends are starting to get matted and easily tangled as well. I did some research online to find out how to properly wash it and got some conflicting information. All of the sites said to use a sink of lukewarm to cold water. As for shampoo, I saw several different opinions including a light human hair shampoo/conditioner, special wig shampoo, and Woolite. Most sites recommended using a leave-in conditioner as well, but again, some sites said to use special wig conditioner and some said a human hair spray-in conditioner would work well. Does anyone have first-hand experience with this? I have an event on Saturday that I need my wig for and hope to have it washed by then.
