Err... what length of wig did you get because this question is rather vague.

Question: How often should I wash my wig?

Answer: The frequency of washing depends on factors such as air quality and humidity. Generally, a wig should be washed after it has been worn 8 – 12 times, but this can vary.

Question: How do I wash my wig?

Answer:

Washing instructions will vary, depending on if your wig is human hair or synthetic. Most wigs are made of synthetic hair, allowing for the easiest washing and styling. Determine if your wig is synthetic or human hair and follow the appropriate care instructions below.

SYNTHETIC WIGS:

Gently brush the wig thoroughly with a wig brush.
Add one tablespoon of wig shampoo to a sink filled with cold water.
Immerse wig for one minute and agitate gently. Do not rub.
Rinse the wig gently in cold clear water twice or until thoroughly rinsed.
Blot the wig gently with a towel. Do not squeeze or wring.
Apply conditioning spray very lightly over wig, spraying 10-12 inches from the wig.
Allow the wig to air dry on a slender object like a can of hairspray or a shampoo bottle covered with a hand towel. Styrofoam heads may stretch the cap.
Do not use a hair dryer. Air dry only. You may gently style the wig with your fingertips.
Brush wig only when completely dry. Do not allow the wig to dry in direct sunlight.

HUMAN HAIR WIGS: To achieve a natural appearance and unique color variations, all human hair wigs are chemically processed. To give your wig the longest life, it is very important to use sulfate-free hair care products that are specifically made for chemically processed hair. To wash your human hair wig, follow these steps:

Detangle the wig using a wig brush or comb. Start at the ends and work upwards to the base of the cap.
Rinse the wig in cold water, with the water flowing in the same direction of the hair to avoid tangling. Do not soak your human hair wig in a basin. This will cause the hair to tangle and mat together.
Using your fingertips and phosphate free shampoo specifically for human hair wigs, distribute the shampoo evenly throughout the hair.
Rinse with cold water to remove shampoo. Rinse so that the water is flowing in the same direction as the hair.
Remove excess water by gently patting with a towel. Do not wring or squeeze.
Condition the wig with wig conditioner, using your fingertips to distribute the conditioner evenly throughout the hair.
Remove the conditioner by rinsing with cold water. To remove excess water, pat gently with a soft towel. Do not squeeze or wring. Allow the wig to air dry on a folding wig stand or a tall can of hairspray.

Hope this can help u
