Mask Care

by Emily

This guide aims to offer advice on storing and caring for your mask. In short, this guide should be helpful to anybody who has brought a mask from us and provide general tips for masks from any other maker.


Mask care and general precautions for masks

  • Avoid naked flames
  • Avoid storing the mask in direct sunlight
  • Avoid sudden temperature changes and exposure to extreme temperatures, best stored between 15°c to 35°c
  • Avoid large impacts to the mask like dropping it, colliding with hard surfaces or storing it on an unstable stand
  • Do not submerge your mask in water for long periods
  • Do not use strong chemicals and solvents to clean your mask (this includes bleach, acetone and alcohols), we recommend the magic eraser sponge provided, simply use it with water to clean marks off masks
  • Do not store or pack the mask with abrasive fabrics and materials


Hair care for our standard wigs

Wigs should be brushed before and after use. Heat resistant wigs can be heat styled with tools between 160°c and 200°c. Heat tools, such as hair straighteners, can be used to reduce frizz and aid de-tangling. Normal hair styling products can be used to maintain the hair style, but we strongly recommend covering the face of your mask while styling hair as not to cause damage to the mask.

You do not need to clean the hair on a regular basis as brushing it, as well as avoiding getting dirt and substances on it, should be enough as wigs do not produce natural oils like human hair. If you feel the need to wash the hair, water and synthetic wig shampoo should do the trick.

Wig maintenance is the responsibility of the mask owner. Not DAME.


Padding

The padding is free fit, you can attach and remove pieces placing them in the position best for you personally. Circular pieces of padding are approximately 0.75 inches thick while rectangular pieces are approximately 1.25 inches thick. Place them in any position you feel best inside your mask. You can wash padding in a 30°c machine wash when you feel it is necessary.


Storage

For best storage keep the mask out of sunlight on a stable stand. Most people must store their mask in a case or box, so make sure to wrap the mask with a clear or white plastic bag or bubble wrap before placing inside a box or case. Additionally, you can protect the mask with medium or low adhesion painters tape (not regular tape) on the chin, nose and ears, but make sure not to store it with tape on for long periods of time. When travelling, make sure the mask is secure in the container as the mask should be kept from moving around too much.


Thanks for taking the time to read this guide, hopefully following this information you should be able to maintain your mask and keep it in a good condition for many years. Good luck to all you kigs out there!
