Tips For Wearing A Wig On The Beach
Avoid diving with a wig
Although we encourage that you don't need to change your routine to be different from others, we recommend that you don't dive with a wig on. Instead, try dipping your body into the sea and embracing the water. If you insist on diving with a wig, it can easily unravel from your head and even start floating in the sea instead of on your head! Even if your wig is perfectly fastened, the stress of diving or jumping can tear your wig off your head. Of course, you can also try wearing a swim cap over your wig. But be careful when putting on and taking off the wig to avoid messing it up or damaging it.
Plus, swimming pools and the sea contain harsh chemicals that can damage your wig. For example, chlorine in seawater can dry out your skin and wig. The salt in the ocean absorbs the moisture in the wig. The longer the wig is submerged in seawater, the more brittle and tangled it becomes with salt water, sand, and chemicals.
Try not to wear your favorite wig into the sea
If you're going to wear a wig into the sea, you might as well not bring your favorite wig with you. Because the sea contains harsh chemicals that can damage your wig. We all hope to keep our favorite best wigs in top condition! So when you're wearing a wig at the beach and swimming in the ocean or pool, consider wearing a wig that you care less about.
Use waterproof glue
There's no doubt that regular wig tape, glue lining, and straps aren't strong enough to withstand the pressure of water. Therefore, we recommend using waterproof glue when wearing wigs on the beach. Waterproof glue holds up better in water, so you can enjoy swimming without worry. Don't forget to pack extra hair spray and tape so that any time the wig gets loose, you have glue on hand.
Use double-sided tape
Double-sided wig bands have the durability of sturdy gel and glue, are nearly invisible like clips and pins, and require no additional installation work. And double-sided wig tape is usually waterproof and medical-grade, which means it's much more reliable than everyday tape.
Use silicone patches
You can use silicone patches on your wig cap to keep your wig off. A fantastic benefit of using silicone strips is that the silicone doesn't stretch, providing extra grip to the wig and keeping your wig in place to allow you to swim without worry.
Try beach braids
You can put your wig in a beach braid, a protective and cute hairstyle. If you braid your wig before you go to the beach, your hairstyle will stay the same all day! So if you're wearing a wig to the beach, you might consider trying some beach braids to keep it from falling off and keep it styled all day!
Avoid direct sunlight
Just as spending too much time in the sun can damage our skin from harmful UV rays, spending too much time in the sun can also be bad for your wig. If exposed to the sun for too long, the wig will dry out and fade in color. A hat is an excellent and easy way to protect a wig from the sun. Or you can spray on UV protection to avoid sunlight.
Condition your wig
If you're going to wear a wig on the beach, post-care is crucial. You must take care to keep your beach wig in good condition. Taking good care of your wig will help extend its lifespan and prevent it from becoming brittle and dry. Wash your wig thoroughly after taking it to the beach to remove harsh pool chemicals as soon as possible. After cleaning, spray the wig with leave-in conditioner. You can also apply leave-in conditioner before you wear your wig to the beach. This helps to lock in moisture and protect it from the elements and the sun!
