How to add K18 Treatment in to your Wig Washing Routine


When it comes to wig maintenance, the choice of products and treatments is paramount. Given that the hair used in wigs has been previously worn by its donor and undergoes extensive processing at the factory for color matching and other modifications, it's essential to employ the right products to maintain its quality. One standout product that has been making waves in the market for the past couple of years is the K18 Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask. This innovative treatment mask has proven to be a game-changer in preserving the hair's integrity better than many other options currently available.

Below, I'll share my preferred routine to achieve the best results in maintaining your wig's beauty and health. This routine incorporates the K18 Hair Mask among other key steps designed to ensure your wig remains as vibrant and lifelike as when you first received it.
