Summer is a challenging time for regular wig wearers. The sweltering heat could make your scalp hot and clammy and the same could happen to your wig cap.
Nevertheless, who doesn’t love a bright sunny summer day? Summer means you can throw off the coats and boots and wear summer dresses and sandals! Now, what about wigs?
The positive side of wearing a wig during summer is that your hairstyle won’t be as easily affected by the humidity as your natural hair would. Natural hair tends to go limp and stick together in the heat, but there are some things tips our professionals would like to share with you to ensure your wig always looks perfect.
If you are wearing a wig due to hair loss from illness or age you probably wear a wig every day.If this is the case then you probably wear a wig every day. Most people that wear wigs due to these reasons already have multiple wigs, however, if you don’t, here is a tip. Buy a synthetic wig for summer.
Of course, it depends on why you are wearing a wig, but whatever the reason – we have the solution!
Switch it Up
Yes we agree with you, Real Human Hair, Remy hair is the most natural and vivacious look for your wig. It is also the hottest especially if your wig hair is densely knotted due to your length or style. Consider adding a synthetic wig to your ultimate summer collection. You are likely to buy new shoes, dresses, and handbags for summer, simply add a gorgeous synthetic wig. After all, it is your personal style!
Synthetic wigs are almost 3 times lighter than human hair wigs, and this will make quite a difference in the summer heat. Another factor that will make your decision easier is that synthetic wigs are less expensive, and you may even be able to buy two. What a pleasure.
Ditch the heat
Summer days are the perfect reason to let your wig air dry. As you know by now all the shampoos, conditioners, styling products, serums, and oils have most probably left some residue on your wig, that is both the hair, and the cap. Summer is the best time to give your wig a natural revamp.
Also remember, every time you blow-dry your hair, use a hair straightener or hot curlers you are essentially damaging the hair shaft and the ends of your hair. This process dries out the hair and causes split ends, something you want to avoid at all costs. In summer, when it is already hot, using heat styling equipment will further dry your hair out.
Use a warm sunny day to revitalize your wig. Wash it in lukewarm water with a natural herbal alcohol-free shampoo, condition it with an Aragon, coconut or olive oil and put it on your foam head to dry in the natural heat.
Stop the Fizz
Have you noticed that even your straight hair wigs tend to fizz in the summer heat. Guess what? This is true for natural human hair too! This tip is a secret between us wig wearers – Buy an anti-humidity spray. This amazing spray, used by most celebrity wig wearers is an industry secret and definitely the best investment you will ever make. Lightly spray your wig with this snit-humidity spray – it will stop your wig from dying out in the heat and hold the frizz factor at bay! This spray is also perfect to keep your hair smelling like you have just stepped out of a salon and it will look that way too!
Say yes to an Updo
If your wig is a long bob or wavy full-length hair, your neck will naturally get hot in summer. Style your hair into a superb updo, whether it is a bun, ponytail, or side braid, this will prevent your neck from that hot sticky feeling. When doing an updo, ensure that the cap is covered by pulling out some pieces of hair on the back and sides.
This will give you that spectacular “au natural’ look, that says my hair is naturally gorgeous and the wasps of hair that are outside the updo are simply part of my signature style!
Change your color
Did you know that lighter color wigs actually repel the rays of the sun. Well, it’s true. In science, we learn that white repels the heat, and that black attracts heat. This is true for hair color too if you can believe it! If you are wearing a wig with long dark hair, switch to a lighter shade, you will be amazed at the difference. Alternatively, if you want to be dramatic, go blonde or light ginger for summer and then back to dark in winter.
It’s your hair, change the color as a seasonal accessory!
For a cooler summer get a no-sweat wig liner. This is an awesome accessory that is a welcome addition to anyone’s collection. These no-sweat wig liners are ventilated and allow air to circulate underneath your Unice wig. They stop perspiration from getting into your wig cap and keep your scalp area cool.
A must-have for summer!
When you are wearing a luscious wig who cannot be tempted to touch that soft silky hair? The issue is the more you touch the hair the more perspiration from your hands or any deposits onto your skin you will be leaving on your hair. This will make your hair look limp and greasy, something you definitely want to avoid!
The general rule of thumb is to wash your hair 8 to 10 times after wearing it. In summer you might have to relook this routine. During summer the perspiration from your scalp might seep through the cap and make your hair look limp. Also, as we have suggested, in summer spray on a UV protector to avoid sun damage. The combination of perspiration, styling products, and a UV spray might need you to reevaluate your washing routine. This also happens when you are not wearing a wig. Most people wash their hair more regularly during summer.
Simply look at your hair in the mirror, or give it a good brush and decide if you must wash your wig. You know best!
Do what works for your hairstyle and suits your lifestyle, wearing a wig is the same as wearing a crown. You get to decide when the crown needs to be polished. It is the same way with your hair. You decide!
