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.
That said, wearing the same wig every single day will eventually put a strain on the wig. For that reason, follow these 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 less natural look. Style it yourself, or consider taking it to a hairstylist who can cut it to make it look natural.
2. 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.
3. Consider a partial wig.
There’s no need to commit to a full wig every single day, especially if you are new to wigs. Instead, try a half-wig or experiment with a topper piece. Just be sure to blend it thoroughly into your natural hair texture.
But if you’re not considering the price, full wigs are still the best choice, as the wigs nowadays are designed beginner-friendly which you can wear right out of the box.
4. Pay attention to the hairline.
If your forehead is showing, opt for a lace front wig, which is one of the most natural-looking wigs available. Similarly, be careful that the wig isn’t too thick or bulky at either the part or the base of the hair.
