With summer here (supposedly), we’re looking forward to the good weather. The sun is out; temperatures are rising; you’re probably spending more time outdoors…. This all sounds ideal – but what if you wear a wig? Is there anything you can be doing to make sure you protect your wig but still enjoy yourself? The short answer is yes! In our (60+ years’) experience, wigs should be treated exactly like skin. In other words, wear protection if you’re out in the sun. A scarf, hat or baseball cap will do – and those made with natural fibres (silk, cotton) are great because they create less friction on synthetic hair, preventing fibres from fraying. Unless you wear a real hair wig, avoid submersing your head in the sea as salt can reduce hair quality and colour. If you’re going to be out in the sun for prolonged periods, use a specially-formulated sun protection spray. You might also want to apply extra conditioner, available to buy here. From a practical point of view, many individuals choose a lighter coloured hair piece or ladies wig in a shorter, easier-to-manage style for summertime.
