Wearing a wig isn’t as easy as it seems to many. What is the one concern shared by all wig wearers? If other people notice you’re wearing the real human hair wigs or not. There’s nothing worse than worrying whether everyone is gazing at you in the supermarket because they can tell that you are wearing a wig.
Firstly, you should be aware that they most likely aren’t gazing at all. Secondly, in addition to the wig’s appearance, how good you care for it will determine whether or not others can tell you are wearing a wig.
So, here are some tips on how to take care of a wig to make it look like natural hair:
Don’t Wear It Too Much
We’re not advocating against wearing a color wig every day, and we’re advocating against consistently wearing the same wig.
A wig is similar to an LBD when worn. The look deteriorates with time as the color dries off and the threads begin to snag.
If you wear color wigs frequently, you might want to think about getting two and switching them out. Your wig should last longer if you don’t wear it as often. Additionally, rotating will enable you to properly take care of your wigs on “off” days.
Don’t Wash It Too Much
You already know that washing your hair too frequently can cause it to become thin, dry, and dull. The same would be valid for wigs, even those made of synthetic and natural human hair wigs. You must be ready to go a few days without washing if you switch between the wigs.
Wait a few weeks between washings if you own one wig to preserve its natural shine.
Always Use High-Quality Products With Your Wig
There are different grades of shampoo and conditioners, and not all of them are worth using with your lovely hair. You and your stylist are both aware of it.
The secret to wig lifespan is using hair products made specifically for wigs. Standard shampoos and conditioners include toxic materials that can severely harm your wig, and unlike natural hair, wig hair won’t gradually begin to heal itself.
So, if you care for your wig, spend a bit more on wig care products to increase their lifespan.
Don’t Use Curling Iron
Everyone is aware that using heat on hair damages it, and wigs are no exception.
The hair on your deep wave wig becomes dry, brittle, damaged, and split ends occur when you put a heating instrument on it, and it also loses its natural luster. Furthermore, the damage is irreversible since wig hair doesn’t heal as actual hair does.
Your wig can be irreparably damaged by flat irons, curling irons, and hair dryers. Heating equipment can cause synthetic wigs to melt, so be careful.
Always allow your wig to air dry. Use non-heating curlers for a curly or wavy appearance. Remember that the majority of wigs are pre-styled, so you may decide on your appearance before your wig is delivered to your home.
