Posts Tagged ‘Washing and Setting Shaitels’

I have now been living in London for 8 months!! I do wash and set my own shaitels and it has been bothering me that my wigs feel very straw-ey after they have been washed and then saturating them in conditioner, actually the same goes for my hair! I have been trying to figure out a way of making the water soft – yes, I know all about water softeners and they don’t really work well at least the one here doesnt work well. So after much trial and error I have figured it out!! My mother has a condenser (clothes) dryer which means it takes all the water from your clothes and puts it into a container which is removable! so i took that water while it was still warm from the dryer – and started washing my shaitel with it!! The hair still feels as soft and smooth as it did before! yay so there you have it! If you live in london and have a condenser dryer please let me know so i can come and get your water! Not only is this a great way to wash your shaitel – keeping it soft but you are also recycling the water!! So let all go green and wash our shaitels like this!!

Happy washing xGx
