Humidity and your Freeda Wig
We’ve discussed swimming in your Freeda wig
and how to stay cool in
the summer, but what about dealing with the effect the humidity and heat that your human hair wig might react to. Over and over you’ll hear about Virgin European wigs being the best quality hair - and it is, but just like hair it will react to the humidity.
Prepare Your Wig
Before going outside, you can prepare the hair in anticipation for the weather. Have your stylist use a stronger conditioner and shine sprays meant to fight frizz. You may find no issue with the weather and your wig.
Dealing with Humidity after the Fact
If your wig has lots of texture (which is great for a style with lots of body), you may find the hair gets flyaway hairs or some frizz when you’re spending time outdoors. Using a serum with silicon or Moroccan oil will help tame the hair.
Tip: If you get stuck in the middle of the day with no products take a little moisturizer and rub it into your hands. Glide your hands over the wig for an instant solution.
Pull it into a Braid
Braiding the hair will help the wig avoid the effects of the humidity. You can pull out the braid when you get indoors.
Silky hair reacts less to the humidity than hair with body. Often we will have customers that will ask for a deep conditioning treatment or a Keratin treatment right before the summer.
Chlorine and Salt
Summer and swimming go hand in hand. Chlorine and salt aren’t great for the hair and can add dryness , but a little exposure isn’t a problem. You can swim in the wig as long as you’re careful to rinse the wig out well as soon as you are done.
A Second Wig
It’s always a good idea to have two wigs and it can be especially helpful in the summer. If your wig’s style has drooped and needs a pick me up you’ll have your second wig to fall back on.
