Finding a Good Wig Shampoo

I’ve been tasked with an assignment from a good friend and while I was searching for the product for her, I thought I’d share the results with our readers on Shoppersbase. My friend asked me to find her a good shampoo for wigs. Not a problem I thought as I begin perusing the internet. She did not have a computer and relied on supplies from a TV advert which were very expensive.

As soon as I began my search I realised that wig shampoo was not such an easily sourced product and could see why she had to resort to buying hers from the television. Also these products have to cater for different kinds of wigs, some treat hair extensions as well and as I looked further into products for wigs, I realised that a lot of people who wear them, use their own concoctions, rather than a specialised product.

There are people who swear by Johnson’s Baby Shampoo, others that only condition with fabric softener, some that have used fabric softener and it ruined their wigs; lots of conflicting advice out there. So it was very important for me to only recommend actual wig products and not go down the ‘Do It Yourself; route. If you have tried something for your wig and it has worked you are welcome to comment on this article. But this is really just recommending specialised wig shampoos and conditioners and letting you know where to find them, at affordable prices. Here we go:
