Ventnor City is a town known for its Atlantic surf and ocean breeze, which is lovely for tourists who love their hair to be tousled by the salt breeze, but less lovely for people who are self-conscious about their wigs.
However, it’s possible for wigs to to look like natural, beautiful hair almost everywhere – even in the most telling environments. One secret is to properly care for your wig to keep it looking like new for longer. The process is slightly different than it is for natural hair, and requires some special wig products that are easy to procure from your local wig boutique, including nearly Wig-A-Do.
Wig Cleaning Products
Wigs need to be washed just like regular hair, although far less frequently since they are not subject to oil from your scalp. Under normal circumstances, you should wash your wig every 20-30 wearings; however, most normal shampoos are far too harsh for either natural or synthetic fibers. Instead, you should wash your hairpiece with specially-formulated natural hair or synthetic hair shampoos. Each type of shampoo is specifically designed to not only cleanse your wig of dust, dirt, and impurities, but also to extend its life.
Wig Moisturizing Products
Although the lack of oil from your scalp means that your wig needs to washed less frequently than real hair, it also means there is no natural moisturizing process, and thus conditioner is an absolute must. Normal conditioners will not do the job; however specially-formulated wig conditioners are perfect for making sure your wig is always supple, never dry and brittle.
Wig Styling Products
Natural hair wigs and heat-resistant synthetics can be styled with
heat; however curling irons, heat rollers, and hair straighteners can also shorten the lifespan of your wig. Normal synthetic fibers are not heat resistant at all, and can be melted if you attempt to style your wig this way. For all of these reasons, therefore, it’s best to style your hair without heat as often as you can. Specially formulated hairsprays and styling products can help you achieve a beautiful look with a minimum amount of heat, helping your wig last longer and look better.
