There are two reasons for using wigs in your daily life, either due to medical hair loss or you just want to try a new look. Whichever it is, one thing is sure, it is important to keep your wig in a good condition. So today, we will focus on what you should't do when wearing a wig. Let's start!
1. Don't ignore cleaning instructions
While it's fun to experiment with different styles, excessive styling can lead to wear and tear. Frequent combing, brushing, or restyling can damage the wig fibers. Be gentle when handling the wig to avoid unnecessary stress.
Here are the care instruction details for our wigs.
2. Don't wear your wig in swimming
Chlorine and saltwater are both triggers of bad-hair-day blues. While chlorine is packed with disinfectants that strip hair of its silky sheen, saltwater draws moisture out of hair, leaving it brittle and dry.
Whether you’ve got natural hair or the finely engineered shine of a wig, you should avoid exposing your ‘do to underwater activities.
3. Don't sleep with your wig
It's not advisable to sleep with wigs on. Friction against the pillow can cause tangling and matting. If you need to wear a wig regularly, consider investing in a satin or silk pillowcase, as these are gentler on the wig fibers.
4. Don't expose your wig to heat
Excessive heat can damage synthetic wigs. Avoid using hair dryers, curling irons, or straightening irons on synthetic wigs unless they are specifically designed for heat-resistant wigs. Human hair wigs can tolerate heat to some extent, but it's still best to use low heat settings.
5. Don't brush when the wig is wet
Wet wigs are more susceptible to damage, and brushing them while wet can cause strands to break or stretch. It's recommended to detangle the wig with a wide-tooth comb or your fingers when it's dry.
By avoiding these common mistakes, I believe you can keep your wigs looking beautiful and extend their lifespan.
