Each season brings its new challenges in caring for our wigs. Winter weather will make our skin and hair become dry and damaged. Cold air is also dry which causes wigs that aren’t properly washed and conditioned to attract more static electricity or even age prematurely.

And along with freezing temperatures, snowstorms, and icy roads, comes extremely dry hair. There’s just something about winter that takes our hairstyles from voluminous and shiny to frizzy and flat.

It's very important to keep your locks hydrated because harsh temperatures can make your hair dry and it will eventually break.

What are the solutions? Here are some top 6 tips to help you easily and effortlessly winterize your wig (no need to go to the wig shop to take care of your hair, it can be solved at home!).

6 Ways to Take Care of Your Wig This Winter

Tip1:Deep Conditioning

Deep Conditioning

Deep conditioning not only prevents frizziness, dryness, and strand breakage, but it can also revive the softness, thickness, and texture of a wig that is exposed to dry air.

Regular conditioners don’t moisturize as well as deep conditioners, so you should use a deep conditioning mask a few times a week.

Tip2:Help Your Wig Maintain Moisture

Help Your Wig Maintain Moisture

In the winter, dry weather can be damaging to your wig. Dry weather can strip the moisture out of your wig, which could make the Human Hair on the wig more brittle and prone to breaking.

Tip3:Keep it Dry

Keep it Dry

After washing your wig, be sure to dry it completely before leaving the house. Not only do you run the risk of getting sick, wandering about with a head of cold, wet hair, but the fibers can freeze, leading to breakage.

Tip4:Keep it Covered

Keep it Covered

Watch out for the breakage. Since your hair may be a little drier in the next couple of months, try to avoid wearing things like wool hats, earmuffs, etc. Beware of not only the products you put in your hair but also the things you wear on your head.

Tip5:Take Care of Tangles

Take Care of Tangles

In the winter, strong winds are more common, which can tangle up your wig. Unfortunately, a small tangle can easily turn into a knot, which is damaging to your wig and can lead to the loss of hair, which isn't replaceable. Wigs lack the natural oils that keep regular hair from becoming tangled.

Tip6:Storing your wig

Storing your wig

The simplest way to store the wig when not in use is on a wig head. There are various types of wig heads, however, using a wig head made of fabric or Styrofoam allows for pins to clip the wig on securely. We recommend t-pins and remind you never to pin directly on the multi-directional crown. Pin the wig on the side of the crown and on the ears for a secure hold.
