Having an adequate heat setting can contribute fundamentally to the overall health of your hair. It’s usually advisable to keep your iron between 250 to 340 degrees if you have a less voluminous wig and between 350 to 400 degrees if your wig is thicker.

  • Always ensure that you use a tool that has a one-inch plate or is narrower as this is always more suitable for curling hair wig.

 

  • The next step is to divide your wig into different sections. If you have a voluminous wig, divide it into three or four sections and if you have a normal wig, divide your wig into two.

 

  • Proceed by taking a small section of your hair and then using a flat iron, clamp it down while gliding that particular section as if using a straight iron.
