Preparing your wig for the Fall weather
Fall is finally here and the weather is changing. It’s important to know how to take care of your wig in the different types of weather. When the weather is windy the hair on the wig blows and can ruin a fresh set or even cause the hair to tangle, but don’t worry- it’s simple to take care of.
Next, you may have concerns that your wig will fly off your head with a gust of wind. If your wig is well fitted and secured properly the odds of that occurring are small.
Wearing a scarf or a hood are simple fixes for both these concerns. If you don’t often wear coats with a hood a scarf can be folded up and take little space in your pocket or your purse.
A baseball cap with the hair tied back is also an option that will provide security and keep the hair protected from tangles. You don’t need to wear the baseball cap, simply tying the hair back will offer the hair protection. You can use a looser hair tie if you are concerned about the ponytail holder leaving marks or indents on the wig.
Does the Wig Fit Well?
Be sure the wig fits you well, before you address the type of clips, combs or adhesives you might use to keep the wig secure. At Freeda we do customized fittings or we can add adjustable elastics to tighten or loosen the wig. This is especially helpful if you prefer a looser fit but want more security when outside in the wind.
Securing Your Wig
We’ve talked at length about the different methods for securing your wig. Clips and combs may be best for those with hair underneath the wig, those without might use wig glue or tape. We are big fans of the Freeda Band that provide security without any clips, combs, glue or tape.
There is a solution for all weather related concerns you may have. We welcome your questions and feedback and look forward to hearing from you.
A half pony or bun is also a good option on less windy days. Our satisfied customer is wearing an Atara wig in this photo.
