Swimming in Your Freeda Wig
Summer means beach days and time at the pool. Many wearing wigs for the first time often imagine a summer void of their favorite warm weather activities such as swimming, relaxing in the spa or going to the beach. Swimming in a wig can seem intimidating, but it can be done.
You don’t have to watch the fun from a beach chair. You don’t have to buy a low quality synthetic wig. You want to look beautiful in your Freeda wig and with a few guidelines you can! A Freeda wig can look beautiful all the time, including at the pool or the beach.
Our clients are vast; we have sold wigs to deep see divers, those snorkeling on vacation, wigs for models doing photo shoots underwater, and just those who want to relax in a pool and the spa .Your Freeda wig is made with 100% virgin European hair. It is real hair, it moves like hair and can be treated like hair, but there are just a few tips to keep in mind. Here are our best tips for wig perfection in the water.
There is nothing enjoyable about a day in the water when you are constantly worried that your wig won’t hold tight. If you are just doing light swimming your preferred standard method will work just fine. If you are looking to do more intensive swimming or diving we suggest using a sport adhesive with a water base. At Freeda wigs we like a product called Bell Horn
, our customers have raved about its super strong hold. We also like SuperTape
which is good for those who prefer tape rather than glue. Some also like to put a hair-band on the wig for an extra secure feeling.
Take your wig for a test run
It’s a good idea to take your wig for a test run before you spend a day at the pool. Experiment with different adhesives, and make sure you feel comfortable and secure with the hold. Test the wig underwater and during vigorous exercise. You’ll enjoy your day much more if you feel secure with the wig’s hold.
A special wig for swimming
Never wear your favorite wig in the pool. It’s important to have a designated wig for sports, the pool or even a rainy day. After the water your wig won’t be styled and will need tending to. You’ll need time to brush your wig, rinse it, condition it and dry it. We don’t recommend wearing a wet wig for longer than necessary as it can stretch out the cap and loosen the knots. You may want to consider a pony wig or a hat fall (to be worn under a bathing cap or hat) as your designated water wig.
Tie the Wig back
You’ll want to braid your wig or put it in a ponytail for more vigorous water activity. Loose wet hair gets tangled and knotty and is a chore to brush out.
After the Water
Tending to your wig once your swimming is done is very important.
- Rinse the wig in fresh water to get rid of chlorine or salt
- Comb through the wig slowly and gently to get rid of all knots
- Use a conditioner on the ends of the hair and rinse
- Hang the wig on a wig head to dry completely
You are now ready for a beautiful beach day with your beautiful Freeda wig. Enjoy!
