Is It Possible To Wear A Wig Every Day?

It is okay to wear a wig every day as long as you are taking care of the hair underneath the wig. Be sure to routinely wash both the wig and your own hair in order to avoid dirt buildup.

Wearing the same wig every single day will eventually put a strain on the wig. For that reason, follow 7 tips to keep your wigs looking healthy:

1. Wash your wig before you wear it.

Don’t wear it straight out of the box. When you first remove a wig from its packaging, it tends to retain the shape of the packaging, which will give it a fake, synthetic look. Style it yourself, or consider taking it to a hairstylist who can cut it to make it look natural.

2.  Don’t wear a wig when you are sleeping.

As there is the friction between wigs and pillows. And it will damage your hair wig, cause the hair easier to tangled and dry. Besides, you need to restyle your wig next day to offer yourself a good look. So you’d better take off your wig before go to bed.

3. Don’t choose wild colors or outrageous styles.

If you want to wear the same wig every single day, then make sure it’s a wig that is versatile--that is, one you can wear on several different occasions, whether that’s to a formal event or to run errands.

However, if you already own one or two more traditional wigs, feel free to treat yourself to one a little more eccentric, for special occasions.
