Best Shampoo And Conditioner For Coloured Wigs
Cleaning your wigs is essential if you want them to look great and want them to last as long as possible.
For a sulphate-free option, the TRESemmé Colour Shineplex range includes a shampoo and conditioner designed for colour-treated hair. Formulated with camellia oil which is known for its regenerative properties, it's a gentle way to wash your coloured wigs.

Aside from using suitable products to wash your hair, also ensure you wash them the right way: gently and with care.
If your wig is synthetic, the best way to wash a bright coloured synthetic wig is by using a shampoo specifically developed for synthetic hair fibres. Not only will this allow you to effectively clean your synthetic wig without damaging it, but it also helps prolong their longevity.
Hairobics' All Day Synthetic Wig Shampoo is specifically formulated for use on synthetic hair. The line also carries a leave in spray to help detangle, prevent dryness and give your coloured synthetic wigs a fresh feeling.
Best Way To Secure Coloured Wigs
As important as it is to use high-quality products to keep your coloured wigs looking amazing, securing them is just as important. Traditional attachment methods like glue, combs and clips can cause damage to not only your natural hair but also the wig itself.
Instead of these potentially damaging wig attachment methods, try the Wig Fix by The Renatural. Made from 100% medical-grade silicone, it's an easy to use hair gripper that gently but effectively keeps wigs secured. Available in a Transparent version as well as four skin tone shades, it's the perfect companion for your full-circumference coloured wigs.
Best Hair Oils For Coloured Wigs
Adding a hair oil to your routine is a great way to seal in moisture and to give your wig an added shine. Olaplex's No.7 Bonding Oil works particularly well for coloured wigs as it doesn't just give your wig a healthy appearance, it also increases colour vibrancy all while offering UV and heat protection.
For a more affordable hair oil option, try KeraCare's Essential Oils For The Hair. It moisturises and keeps hair soft while adding luminosity and shine. It can also be used as a hot oil treatment!

Best Deep Treatments For Coloured Wigs
A deep treatment such as a hair mask can be used every so often to deeply nourish and revive your wigs. If you wear your coloured wig a few times a week, we recommend doing this every 2 weeks to keep them looking their best.
Here are some of our favourites for coloured wigs:
- Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle Colour Mate – the iconic miracle hair mask reformulated specifically for coloured hair to hydrate and preserve vibrancy.
- Briogeo's Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask – great for your curly wig units.
- Moroccanoil's Color Depositing Mask – this clever mask comes in seven shades and is designed to temporarily deposit colour into your hair to help boots its vibrancy all while promoting hydration.
