Summer may not formally be here for a couple of more days. However, summer weather unquestionably is! That means pool parties, seashore grills, and, indeed, choosing whether or not it is too hot outside to wear a wig. Wearing a wig during summer can be fun and exciting. Artificial wigs come pre-styled and do not lose their look when the weather gets hot. They are the perfect accessory for any summer outfit!
Fair warning! Wearing a wig in August can feel similar to putting on a ski cap in the winter: reasonable for a few, while terrible for other people. This is particularly true for ladies who are going through chemotherapy and need to remain completely cool. In regard to such individuals, wearing a wig in the heat is not necessarily a choice because not wearing a wig can be just as troublesome a decision. Hairpieces can help ladies who have encountered balding gain confidence while battling sickness, so not wearing one can have adverse effects.
So what does one do in the event that they need to wear a wig in the summer and to remain cool?
Follow the steps below (and thank us later)!
Tip #1: Switch out the human hair wig for an artificial wig.
Human hair wigs may look more natural than artificial wigs. However, if remaining cool in a wig in the summer heat is not the option for you, artificial wigs are made of a lightweight fiber that is a few times lighter than human hair wigs. In the event that remaining cool is the primary objective, one should go for an artificial wig every time.
Tip #2: Say farewell to your hairdryer/twisting wand/fixing iron
Putting a warm, newly styled wig on one’s head in 90-degree heat is not the best idea if one is wanting to keep cool. In fact, we suggest avoiding styling devices totally throughout the late spring, and not only because a styled wig can cause one to overheat.
Wig hair does not create common oils to saturate itself as natural hair does, so wig hair – engineered and human – dries out and gets weak after some time. Warmth, even muggy warmth, will dry out one’s wig or artificial hair. Try not to use warm instruments such as crimpers in the summer to expand the lifespan of one’s wig.
Tip #3: Experiment with updos
If there is ever a time one wants to experiment with a wig, now is the time! A simple solution to keeping cool under a wig is to make a cute up-do! Pull up as much as possible off the neck and away from one’s face to keep cool all summer long!
Tip #4: Keep 👏🏻 hands 👏🏻 out 👏🏻 of 👏🏻 the 👏🏻 wig
We know people love to touch and play with their hair. However when the climate heats up, so do our hands. Transferring that sweat to the artificial hair ends up overloading the hair, shortening the lifespan of the wig, and definitely heating things up under there.
Tip #5: Buy a no perspiration/stop sweat liner
Not all wig liners are equivalent.
A no-sweat liner does what the name infers: they have additional ventilation, permitting air to course underneath the wig. No sweat liners stop the arrangement of sweat and gather any perspiration that manifests. Additionally, they stop any perspiration that occurs from getting into the wig cap.
Tip #7: Switch to a lighter tone.
Individuals do not begin wearing white in the summertime simply because it looks great. It is also because lighter tones do not soak up the rays like darker tones. So to all of our black-tinted wig wearers out there, while that beautiful, dark, and luxurious wig is stunning, it will be absorbing a tremendous amount of heat this summer and is not the best option if one is trying to remain cool! Switch it up and try a couple of shades lighter. After all, they do say blondes have more fun!
Tip #8: Do not neglect to wash the wig
When a wig is not cleaned, lint, sweat, hair spray, and other items remain in the wig. Just like with real hair, it is important to maintain an effective hygiene routine. Doing this will make your wig shine and last longer!
