Here at Simone Thomas hair loss clinic we advise that you should always have two wigs ready to wear at all times.
This way you always have something to wear when you are washing one wig and also you have a back up if anything should happen to one of your wigs. Rotating between two wigs will also help to extend the life of your wigs. A synthetic wig has a shorter life span to a human hair wig. Some synthetic wigs that are being continuously worn on a daily basis may only last 3 months before they start to go frizzy. The longer the hair the more likely it will happen. There are some higher grade synthetic wigs that will last much longer. It is not that the synthetic wigs are of a poor quality it is just the nature of the fibre – when the fibre rubs together or against your clothes and the heat from the back of your neck it causes the fibres to swell and become coarse and brittle. There is no way of stopping this eventuality. Some of the more expensive higher quality synthetic wigs will last much longer before this happens.
If you love to cook here is a tip every wig wearer should know; NEVER open the oven while wearing a synthetic wig! The sudden burst of heat will ruin your wig; even the hot steam from a boiling pot of water can cause irreparable damage. Do not tend to a BBQ whilst wearing a synthetic wig either. Remember that the hair fibre is man made and could melt or frizz with exposure to the heat.
Avoid these kitchen disasters. Swap your wig for a stylish head scarf; better yet, kick back and let someone else do the cooking!
Synthetic wigs with too much shine look fake and unnatural. To minimize shine, sprinkle a little hair powder on your wig, and then brush through for a more natural look.
