Wig Tips for Summer
Many wig wearers find it difficult to wear a wig in the summer. Some wigs can make you sweaty, hot, and heavy. However, it is possible to wear a wig in the summer without throwing it away. So, how do you pick a summer wig?
I.What is the best summer wig style?
Short wigs are ideal for hot days because they allow you to change your style. For the summer, there are many lovely short wig styles to choose from, such as sleek bobs, textured pixie cuts, and wavy bobs. If you prefer longer hair, go for a shoulder-length or longer style that can be worn in a loose ponytail or messy hairstyle.
II.What are the best summer wigs?
1. Lighter colors
Nothing says summer like a lovely light-colored hairstyle. Have you ever wished for the perfect California girl blonde? With a wig, you can get any color you want in an instant. Why not try a completely different color for summer? During the warmer months, experiment with different hair colors by selecting a wig that is a lighter color than your fall or winter styles—with highlights or colors throughout the wig. Furthermore, lighter colors do not absorb as much heat as darker colors do. Keep this in mind when selecting a summer wig color if you want to stay cool in the sun.
2. Casual, relaxed styles.
Summer is all about unwinding, having fun, and taking vacations! Choose a messier style to capture the laid-back summer vibe in your wig. Styles with beach waves or layers are ideal for summer.
3. Cool and comfortable.
Of course, you'll need a comfortable wig in the summer heat! Look for lightweight synthetic hair wigs with a cut that can be worn away from your face. Learn more about staying cool in a wig here.
III.Should I wear a synthetic or human hair wig In the summer?
Even if you typically wear a human hair wig, I recommend switching to a synthetic wig in the summer. Because they are made of thick human hair, human hair wigs appear natural. Human hair collects sweat and oils in the summer and becomes extremely heavy.
Lighter hair fibers in synthetic wigs do not collect as much liquid. Synthetic wigs will keep you cooler and lighter during the hottest months of the year.
Synthetic wigs are better suited for summer wear overall. A human hair wig reacts to heat in the same way that natural hair does. As the humidity rises, it may lose its shape and style or become frizzy. Even when exposed to hot weather, synthetic wigs retain their shape. Synthetic wigs are a good option to try if you are concerned about overheating. However, regardless of which wig type you choose, be sure to select the appropriate complementary wig care products to keep your wig fresh and flawless all summer long.
IV.Should I wear a wig cap in the summer?
A moisture-wicking layer between your scalp and wig can help keep you cool in the summer. When the weather warms up, you should consider wearing a wig cap or alternating between a wig and a light headpiece to give your scalp a break.
V.What is the best summer cap construction?
1. Capless cap. Traditional caps are also known as capless hats. The name is very appropriate because they have ventilation openings throughout the hat. It allows air to circulate freely throughout, making it breathable and keeping your scalp cool on hot summer days.
2. Lace front wigs are hand-tied to look like your natural hairline. This type of wig cap allows you to style your hair away from your face. Try some hairstyles that allow you to pull your bangs back with a headband or to the side with accessories.
VI.How to avoid sweating while wearing a wig?
A wig cap can significantly reduce sweating while wearing a wig. A bamboo wig cap or liner is especially recommended in the summer. The wig cap's material transfers sweat to the fabric's outer surface and dries quickly, preventing excessive sweating.
Get into the habit of washing your wig more frequently.
While we never recommend over-washing your hair, excessive sweating on hot days means your wig will collect extra sweat and oils, and a heavier, denser wig will eventually lead to a hotter and more uncomfortable wig-wearing experience.
So we recommend washing your wig more frequently than usual, as this cleanses excess sweat and removes excess weight. You can learn how to wash your wig in the video below.
Where should I store my wig this summer?
Human and synthetic wig hair wigs, as previously stated, degrade in the heat. Keeping your wig in a cool, dry place will help it last longer. Make sure your wigs aren't stored near windows, in hot attics, or in the trunk of your car.
Can I go swimming in my wig?
Wearing a wig while swimming is not recommended, and as long-time wig wearers know, most wigs don't look good when wet. Because the chemicals in swimming pools and the salt in seawater can damage your wig fibers, you should swim with a swim cap or a hydrophilic headband.
What other options do I have if I don't want to wear a wig in the summer?
In the summer, no wig will provide adequate ventilation for some people, particularly chemotherapy patients. If this is the case, you can wear a hat or a headband. Choose cotton so you can wash it frequently and remove excess buildup.
