As a rule of thumb, a wig should be washed after every 12-15 wears during spring and summer months and after six to eight wears in autumn and winter. Seasonal contributing conditions such as air quality and humidity factors all add to the frequency of washing required similarly to your own hair.

* SUZANNE'S STAR TIP
Always keep your own hair clean when wearing your wig to reduce washing frequency and provide for a comfortable wear base.
Before washing, brush all straight styles gently but completely with a wire or plastic brush with knobs on it. Brush all curly styles lightly with a vent brush or 'pick' keeping the curls intact as you go.
For curly hairstyles, lightly hand squeeze curls whilst the wig is still wet.
For all other styles, gently towel-dab the wig to remove any excess wet. Then place the wig on a clean dry towel and allow the air to circulate naturally for a perfect dry. DO NOT COMB OR BRUSH THE WIG UNLESS YOU ARE COMPLETELY RESTYLING IT. ALSO DO NOT DRY IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT. After the wig is fully dry, shake out and style.
ALWAYS place your wig back on a wig stand when not in use.
