Apart from the assurance that you can wear a wig, there are so many myths surrounding this particular hair accessory. The first thing you’ll need is a good quality wig, either made of synthetic materials or human hair. What you give is what you get, so be sure to invest in your wig and ask tons of questions about the materials and how to maintain it. In general, human hair wigs are mostly recommended especially for women who are already experiencing balding. These wigs are also generally lighter, more comfortable and the most realistic-looking.

Make sure your wig fits

Looking for the right size of wigs is quite important as well. A tight fitting wig can cause headaches, and a way bigger one can make you uncomfortable, or worse, fall off!  You should also make sure that you get the color and texture that you want. If possible wear your wig for a few hours before you make your purchase as a way to understand how it feels and looks on your head. Another tip is to make sure that you understand the air ventilation in your wig. Wigs with nylon netting are good for letting your hair breathe some air for proper hair growth. Also, wear wig liners made of silk at the same time to create a barrier between the wig and your hair.

How long should you wear a wig?

A lot of this depends on your lifestyle and how often you are out and about. In general, this is around four times a week while wearing it about four to six hours per day. Don’t wear wigs when there is no need to or in other words where you should opt to wear your hair naturally whenever you can. You should also give your head a rest at night and go wig-free when you sleep.
