How To Prolong The Lifespan Of Your Wigs?

If you are a wearer of wigs, you already know that wigs as the same as other products having their lifespan. As you wear a wig every day, it is easy to be worn. So you have to pay attention to the lifespan of wigs so that you change a new one timely and keep a nice appearance.

 

How long do wigs last?

Do you know the lifespan of human hair wigs and synthetic wigs? Generally, high-quality human hair wigs can last for 8 to 10 months, and with good care, the lifespan of human hair wigs even can be more than one year if you do not wear them frequently.

And for synthetic wigs, their lifespan is much shorter than human hair wigs on average and only can last for three to four months.

What influence the lifespan of wigs?

1. Materials

As I mentioned above, you already know the different lifespans of synthetic wigs and human hair wigs due to their different hair materials.

Human hair wigs are made of human hair, having a similar texture to our natural hair, and certainly have a longer lifespan than synthetic wigs. But do you know why? What causes the life difference between these two kinds of wigs?

Human hair has some layers inside, and we can see them visually. The special structure of human hair protects it from extrinsic harmful factors to keep hair healthy and strong. Faced with a strong force, this makes hair flexible and will not break instantly.

And high-quality human hair materials, like virgin human hair and Remy human hair, which have never undergone any chemical processing then the texture and cuticles are intact.

In contrast to human hair wigs, synthetic wigs are made of synthetic materials such as fibers and are likely to get tangled and shed and break.

2. Wig base material

Wig base material refers to the material of the wig cap, including monofilament, silk, and lace. Although base materials do not expose to the air and cause friction, they immediately contact our hair and scalp so that still has a significant impact on the lifespan of wigs.

The lace base is lightweight and breathable but the soft material and single-layer structure make wigs less durable.

And among the most common base materials, monofilament and silk bases contribute to a longer lifespan. A tight weave of monofilament base and layered structure of silk base make wigs more durable.

3. Wearing frequency

Wearing frequency affects the lifespan of a wig. If you wear a lace frontal wig every day, it will wear out faster than if you wear it several times a year.

4. Usage frequency of heat tools

Heat tools, such as hair dryers, curling irons, and flat irons, are a great assistant to making the perfect hairstyle and elevating your temperament. However, these heat tools with high temperatures shorten the service life of wigs to a certain extent, especially for synthetic wigs.

How to prolong the lifespan of your wigs?

1. Wash your wigs properly

Please control the frequency of washing because it really affects the last time of wigs. If you plan to wear it every day, it is okay to wash it once every two weeks to clean the dirty things from the surface of your hair. And for regular wearing, like applying human hair wigs to go to a party or a lecture, you can only wash hair every 6 to 8 weeks.

Remember, over-washing and improper washing will definitely reduce the lifespan of wigs.

2. Hair care products

Hair care products, such as olive oil, moisturized spray, and hair color conditioners, are all necessary for hair maintenance. Bear in mind: pick the products that are made for wigs.

Human natural hair care products are not suitable for wigs, especially synthetic wigs. They contain ingredients that do little to hydrate and protect the wig fibers and can even damage your wig beyond repair, making it unwearable for a short period.

3. Untangle your hair every day


Whether you remove the wig from your head every night or not, it is necessary to comb it until smooth before you go to bed. This step can prevent hair from damage and breakage at night.

In addition, when you prepare to wash your wig, untangle your hair first. Wet and tangled hair is more fragile than dry and tangled hair.
