Keeping cool – Some old tricks and new tricks
It’s hot out! Wearing a wig when it’s hot out can make you feel even hotter. What’s a wig wearer to do when it just seems too hot for extra layers?
Synthetic wigs are bad news for wig wearers. Synthetic materials cause excessive sweating and heat. You’ll appreciate your virgin European Freeda wig, which is more breathable. You may want to consider an open wefted cap with hair that is low in density.
Wearing a wig that is short is always a quick solution. A wig that exposes the neck will be cooler during the hot months. A pony tail wig is always a good choice as well. If you like shade you can always get a hat fall and wear a baseball cap with the hair in a pony or a bun.
Some new tricks:
A good trick we tell our customers is to keep a small 4 ounce spray bottle in their purse. Spray your neck and face when you start feeling overheated.
Another trick we love it to place a wig cap in the freezer and put it underneath your wig, it will really cool you down. If you’ll be out all day you can use the freezer packs that keeps food cold ; midday when you are feeling the heat you can place your wig cap under your wig for a refreshing cool down. If that feels uncomfortable to you try a 100% cotton wig cap under the wig, it absorbs the sweat and customers report that it felt better to them in the heat than without.
