4 Ways To Stay Cool & Comfortable In A Wig This Summer

Here are four tips that will help you stay cool and comfortable as you navigate your first summer wearing a wig. 

Go With A Lighter Color

If you plan on spending a lot of time outside this summer, you may want to consider going with a lighter hair shade, especially if you typically wear darker colored hair. A lighter colored hair wig will not absorb the heat the same way a dark colored hair wig will. If you don't want to drastically change your look, purchase a wig that is just a few shades lighter than your normal look so you'll still be able to reap the benefits of having a lighter colored wig without straying too much from your regular hair color.

Wear A Stretch Cap Wig

When you purchase your wig for the summer, look for stretch cap wigs. Stretch cap wigs are generally made out of breathable material that has ventilation features built-in to the wig itself. Normal caps on wigs are generally made of material that is not designed to provide you with ventilation. Going with a stretch cap wig is an easy way to stay cool and comfortable while wearing a human hair wig in the summertime.

Go With A Shorter Style

Longer hair pieces tend to be hotter than shorter hair pieces. One of the great benefits of wearing a wig is that you can easily switch to a shorter hair style during the summer time and enjoy the benefit of being a little cooler, and then switch right back to a longer hair style in the fall without going through the awkward growth period in-between having short and long hair. Enjoy the freedom that wearing a wig provides and try out a short style wig this summer.

Cover It Up

Exposure to direct sunlight, over time, can cause damage to your wig. When you spend extensive time outside in the direct sunlight, wear a hat or a scarf. This will help you stay cool and will also extend the life of your hair wig at the same time.

Wash It More Often

As a wig wearer, you probably already know that you don't need to wash your wig on a regular basis if you want to get as much wear out of it as possible. However, in the summer time your body releases more sweat and oils, which can be transferred to your wig. Take your normal wig-washing schedule and cut it in half during the summer time. For example, if you normally wash your wig once every two weeks, wash it once a week in the summertime. This will keep your wig cleaner and make it more comfortable as well.
