To help you with this, ellen wille THE HAIR COMPANY GmbH has produced a range of shampoos, balms and other useful care products, that have been especially designed to maintain the quality and beauty of your wig.

How to care for human hair & prime hair wigs

For gentle cleaning of your high-quality human hair, ellen wille recommends the pure!power care set. Containing shampoo, Care ‘n’ repair and a balm, this set provides perfect care for all human hair models and guarantees a silky shine and long-lasting suppleness.

Before you commence cleaning, we would like to remind you that you should never use standard hair care products which are available in commercial stores. The structure of the fibre can be permanently damaged when these products are used and consequently the longevity can not be guaranteed. Clean your wig regularly ,however, do not wash it too often. Depending upon daily use, our recommendation is once per week. Avoid friction and excessive heat, but you can use a hair dryer or straightener on medium heat. Take care when opening an oven, of steam near boiling water, in front of an open fire, a spot light, solarium etc.

PREPARATION 

Place your wig on a polystyrene head and secure it with a couple of pins. Never pierce the needles through the lace front or monofilament top! We recommend that the hair is gently combed before washing (always start at the tips and work your way up to the hairline). Use a special metal wig comb (with rounded ends!) to comb through your wig. Do not use commercial brushes or sharp combs.

WASHING 

Pre-wash the hair under the cold water letting the water flow in the same direction as the hair. Spread a dash of human hair shampoo (ellen wille – pure) on the palm of your hands and evenly work into the hair from base to tips. Soak for 10 – 15 minutes and then remove from the solution and rinse thoroughly. After washing we recommend subsequent treatment with ellen wille balm. Please repeat the above steps again rinse thoroughly.

CARE 

Gently wipe off excess water and dab with a towel. For styling and daily care we recommend regular treatment with the pure!power care&repair spray. It smoothes the hair structure and makes long hair easier to comb. Use a special metal wig comb (with rounded ends!) to comb through your wig. Place the wig on a suitable wig stand or allow to dry naturally on a towel. You can also use a hair dryer on medium heat.    Please take note: Never dry your ellen wille wig by rubbing it in a hand-towel and do not comb or brush it whilst still wet or damp!

PROTECTION 

To protect hair tips against split ends we offer an intensive treatment with ellen wille Hair Tip Liquid. It repairs and regenerates tips and gives vitality and moisture.

SHAMPOO FOR GENTLE CLEANING   

Add a thimble-full of ellen wille shampoo into 1 liter of lukewarm water. Now softly shake the wig out and lay it in the shampoo bath. The shampoo has a self-cleaning effect – it does not need to be agitated or similar. After 10 minutes remove and thoroughly rinse the wig in clear lukewarm water. Do not rub or wring!

BALM FOR CARE RIGHT TO THE TIPS 

For a healthy shine, add a little ellen wille Balsam into 1 liter of lukewarm water. Allow 10 minutes for it to work and rinse again thoroughly. Allow it to dry naturally in the air. Do not subject the wig to additional heat or warmth! Drying the wig is quicker and easier when using an ellen wille Wig Stand.    Never dry your ellen wille wig by rubbing it in a hand-towel and do not comb or brush it whilst still wet or damp!

CONDITIONER FOR PERFECT PROTECTION

ellen wille conditioner gives perfect protection and an additional sheen. Spray the strands and tips of the dry hair with conditioner from a distance of about 10 cm in short bursts. We recommend ellen wille vitalizing Hair Tip Liquid for use on long and curly hair models. Spread a couple of drops on the palm of the hand and work it into the tips of the hair. Do not rinse!

STYLING FOR THE PERFECT FINISH 

Styling gives the perfect finish to every hairstyle. Used sparingly, ellen wille hairspray or wet-gel gives the ideal hold.  We wish you lots of enjoyment from your ellen wille wig model.
