In the world of wigs, Luvme Hair stands out for its commitment to quality, offering exclusively human hair wigs. Whether you're aiming for soft waves or bouncy ringlets, curling your Luvme human hair wig can transform your look in minutes. But how do you achieve those perfect curls on a wig? In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the steps to curl your Luvme wig safely and effectively.
Understanding Your Wig Type
Before you begin, it's important to know your wig type. Luvme only provides human hair. Although both human and synthetic hair can be curly, the methods and precautions are different.
- Synthetic Wigs: Made from man-made fibers, these wigs have a preset style memory. They can be curled, but with caution, as excessive heat can damage them.
- Human Hair Wigs: Crafted from real human hair, these wigs offer the most natural look and feel. They can be styled just like your biological hair, making them more versatile for curling.
Benefits of Human Hair Wigs
- Natural Look: Human hair wigs offer an unmatched natural appearance, blending seamlessly with your biological hair if you have any left underneath.
- Heat Styling: Unlike synthetic wigs, human hair wigs can withstand heat, allowing you to use curling irons, straighteners, and blow dryers without causing damage.
- Longevity: With proper care, human hair wigs can last much longer than synthetic counterparts.
- Customization: From coloring to cutting, human hair wigs can be customized to your liking.
Tools You'll Need
- Wide-tooth comb or wig brush
- Heat protectant spray (especially for human hair wigs)
- Curling iron or curling wand
- Hair clips
- Wig stand or foam head
- Hair spray (optional)
- Detangle: Start by gently detangling your wig using a wide-tooth comb or a wig brush. This ensures smooth curls and reduces the risk of damage.
- Wash (if necessary): If your wig feels dirty or has product buildup, consider washing it before curling. Ensure it's completely dry before styling.
- Heat Protectant: Always apply a heat protectant spray to safeguard the hair from potential heat damage. This step is crucial for maintaining the health and shine of your wig.
- Sectioning: Divide the wig into sections using hair clips. This makes the curling process more manageable and ensures even curls.
- Curling: Set your curling iron to the appropriate temperature. For synthetic wigs, use a low heat setting. For human hair wigs, you can use a higher setting, but always start low and increase if needed. Take a small section of hair, wrap it around the curling iron or wand, hold for a few seconds, and then release.
- Cooling: Allow the curl to cool in your hand for a moment to set the shape.
- Repeat: Continue this process until you've curled the entire wig.

- Loosening Curls: If you desire looser waves, gently run your fingers through the curls or brush them out lightly.
- Setting the Curls: For added hold, especially for synthetic wigs, you can use a light hairspray.
Maintenance and Care
- Storage: After curling, store your wig on a wig stand to maintain its shape.
- Washing: Cleanse your wig every 8-10 wears to remove product buildup and keep it looking fresh. When it's time to wash your curled wig, use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. This ensures the curls remain intact and the wig stays nourished.
