Natural hair clip ins typically have a shine that alerts everyone that it is natural. This rinse is a great option for human or synthetic lace-wigs. Apple cider vinegar will get rid of the shine, soften the hair and gentle cleanse. Simply add 1 tablespoon per 1 cup of water that you wash your lace-wig in. If you wash your wig in a bowl that holds 8 cups of water, add 8 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Why not regular vinegar? The acidity in vinegar helps to break down dirt from styling products in the wig. However, it does not soften the hair. The natural acidity and enzymes from the apple will soften hair and get rid of shine on your full lace-wig.
After you dry your lace-wig, brush it with a light sprinkle of baking soda. Baking soda acts the same way as the apple cider vinegar by reducing shine. Place a teaspoon of baking soda on the brush and brush through the lace-wig. (more…)
