Keeping Your Wig Cool During The Summer

Keeping Your Wig Cool During The Summer

"It's too hot to wear a wig!" "It's too hot for extensions!"

Have you caught yourself making the same complaints? Well, you aren't alone. We love our wigs, but during the warmer months, we find ourselves wearing them less often. Not because we've traded the wig for another protective style, but because wearing a wig on a 95°F day can be a bit hot, to put it lightly. Below are a few tips and tricks to keep you cool underneath your wigs and weaves.

 

Tip# 1: A Dash of Baby Powder

• Before putting your wig on for the day, sprinkle a little bit of baby powder or powdered sunscreen onto your scalp. The powder will soak up any perspiration, and it won’t leave your scalp irritated.

 

Tip #2: Minimize your Usage of Heating Tools

•Freshly curled and straighten hair is beautiful, but wait until the unit cools down before installing it. If not you risk trapping heat in the unit and onto your scalp, causing sweat, which can lead to an itchy scalp.

 

Tip #3 A Spritz of Anti-Humidity Spray

•A little goes a long way with this product. This spray not only helps you eliminate frizz, but it'll also act as a deodorant and prevent sweat from forming around the wig cap.

 

Tip #4: Shampoo your Wigs

• Daily your wig is weighed down by products and perspiration. Be sure to pamper your wigs and extensions by washing them regularly. Indique's French argan oil-infused shampoo and conditioner is a great product to use to care for your units.
