If it’s not an expensive sheitel, I would toss it.

Bag it for 2 weeks. It will all be dead. Then just comb it out with a lice comb, not that there a viable lice, just because it is gross.

When my coworker had nits in her sheitel, she was told to bag it for 2 weeks and freeze it.

After waiting two weeks, I’d just wash it and brush it normally. Combing with a lice comb will pull out the hairs. The dead bugs will fall out and there should be very few nuts since most would’ve hatched and died.

My wigs have to be quarantined because I had lice that I caught from my kids.
I wore both of the within the last few days before the infestation.
We went to a professional to get it cleaned out, but any idea where I can get a shaitel for Yom tov? Does anyone know of a gemach that would give it to me for just 2 weeks? I'm in Brooklyn btw.
