Last time, I explained how to block a wig so it can be washed and set. I'm really getting the hang of blocking - I can do it quite quickly now!
Once the wig is secured tightly to the block, it is then washed. It is done normally with shampoo and conditioner, but you have to be careful not to completely submerge the malleable block. It is protected with cling film, but if water gets in the sawdust starts to go mouldy and the block loses its rigidity.
Here is my blocked and washed wig:
This is the wig once rollers have been fitted:
Not bad for a first attempt!
