Wear wigs and don’t think you need a wig steamer? Think again.
For the serious wig lover, a wig steamer is a must-have. Why is that you ask? Well, it all comes down to preservation and convenience. That’s right. A wig steamer is the tool you need to preserve the quality of your wigs without the help of a professional.
You might be thinking, “Why not just use a standard clothing or furniture steamer to steam my wig to perfection?” The answer is because you’d be making a huge mistake. When it comes down to it, household steamers will pretty much ruin your human hair or synthetic wigs. They have been created to get really hot in order to rapidly steam out set-in wrinkles from heavy duty fabrics and upholstery – not hair. This is why you’ll want to invest in a steamer designed specifically for the gentle nature of wigs.
While a handheld wig steamer is the thing you need to smooth out wig crimps and kinks, it can also be used to style your favorite wigs. That’s right! A wig steamer doubles as wig care accessory and wig styling tool. Wig steamers are especially helpful when styling synthetic wigs that retain shape or offer “style” memory. They can quickly and easily straighten and smooth fibers from tight coils, curls or waves. But they can also be used to hold those curls or coils in place. Furthermore, wig steamers lock in moisture to revitalize hair that is dried out and help eliminate frizzy flyaways to keep your wigs in tiptop shape. Just make sure your wigs are heat-friendly before styling or caring for them with a wig steamer.
So there you go. If you’ve been on the fence about buying a wig steamer, we’ve just given you a few good reasons to pick one up!
