Tips for Wig Hair Care in the Humid Summer Months
Summer is here, and that means the heat has arrived as well! However, the extreme summer heat can be damaging to your custom hairpieces or wigs. Excess heat, such as the sun, can cause damage to your wigs, whether they’re made from synthetic or human hair. The heat from the sun is not the only thing you need to avoid with your wigs or hairpieces.
Make sure to keep them away from any other heat sources, such as an oven, boiling pot, curling iron or hair dryer. These very hot items can cause the synthetic hair of your wig or hairpiece to melt. They can also cause damage to real human hair wigs, making the hair frizzy and over processed.
To keep your wig away from any extreme heat this summer, remember some of our easy tips. Don’t leave your wig in a hot car or trunk for an extended period of time. If you are going out into the hot sun with your wig, wear a large hat to help protect it. It is also recommended not to cook near a hot stove with your wig on. Keep your natural or synthetic wigs lasting longer and looking healthier by keeping them away from excessive heat this summer, which includes the sun for long periods of time and various styling tools like curling irons or blow dryers.
