Question Something in the wig is making me break out

If I wash it, should that fix the problem?

is it synthetic hair? sometimes the way the wigs/wefts are processed have stuff in it that irritate the skin.

You are probably allergic to something that was mixed in with the hair. I know a few people that broke out from getting their hair braided with synthetic hair. Good luck.

yeah it's the hair, for some reason synthetic will make alot of people break out like crazy, if you can try to wear it off of your face.

or wash it with a clarifying poo see if that helps.

How are you fitting all that hair under a wig?

I wrap it or cross-wrap it (with bobby pins), put on a wig cap and I'm set.

I've had that same problem. In the growafrohairlong box braid tutorial she was using synthetic hair and said to soak it in vinegar and water to remove the alkaline base because it irritates some people. Maybe you could try that?

It's a Freetress Equal, but I think a Model Model brand wig has also caused me to break out--I just didn't realize it at the time.

I have pics in my blog with me and a couple of my wigs, but not the most recent purchases. Check it out though!
I'm pretty sure it's the wig though--the breakouts are showing up right where the wig is hitting my face.

It's like a stocking cap/du rag that fits very snug on the head so as to flatten and round it out so it can just be covered easily with a wig.

I was just about to say this. However, as a veteran Crown & Glory lady, lemme tell you that the wig will look chewed rough and crunchy WAY earlier if you actually do soak it in vinegar. Since it's synthetic, I'm hoping it didn't cost too too much and won't break your heart if you have to throw it out sooner.

Hairsothick is correct..you must release the alkaline base by doing a water/vinegar soak.

I've had the same problem and couldn't figure out why or how I could prevent it. I'd just buy new wigs. Thanks ladies!!
