When you wear a wig every day, keeping it looking great can be somewhat of a challenge. Knowing the basics of how to care for a wig will extend its lifespan and ensure it’s easy to style how you want. Whether you have one wig or multiple wigs in your collection, here are simple and effective tips for keeping your wig looking amazing every single day.
Don’t Sleep In Your Wig
It’s tempting to just go to sleep with your wig on after a long day. However, the friction from the pillow rubbing against the strands can cause serious damage to the point where it may be impossible to restore its normal shape. It’s well worth your time to take a few minutes every night to take it off safely and store it properly until the next morning.
Wash With A Designated Wig Shampoo
If you’re not already using a quality wig shampoo, it’s definitely a good investment. A designated wig shampoo will have the proper ingredients needed to keep the strands looking healthy and shiny. And when it comes to the frequency of your washes, consider washing the wig gently once every week. It’s usually not necessary to wash your wig every day, unless you are very active and sweat a lot throughout the day and feel the need to do so.
Keep A Wig Rotation
Wearing a wig every day can take a toll on its appearance when you think about the amount of styling done to it, the weather elements and other factors. Consider investing in three or four different wigs if you have not already done so. Having a rotation can keep them all looking fresh for a longer period of time. You also won’t have to wash them as frequently, and if you time it just right, you can wash them all at once every couple of weeks and they will always look perfect.
Store Your Wig Properly Every Night
The second-most important thing next to the wig care products you use is the method in which you store your wig every night. If you simply lay it on the counter, you may end up with flat spots that are hard to even out. Be sure to place it on a wig stand and in a dry and cool place. Wigs are durable for the most part, but you can help them tremendously just by keeping them stored safely every night.
