A wig is a woman’s great friend. It gives you all the fabulosity of sew-ins and unmatched versatility. But it's probably to have hair loss if you leave sew-ins in too long or don’t treat your natural hair under wigs. When you take care of your wigs, you should not neglect your own natural hair. Now, let’s jump right into this list of 8 ways to maintain your hair underneath your wig.
1.Massage and Moisturise your Scalp
Putting a wig on your head tightly can cause the blood flow to your scalp to be reduced. Take some time to give your scalp the love it needs by massaging and moisturizing it as often as it can. This can promote a healthy blood flow and encourages your hair to grow.
2.Keep your hair dry and neat
Be sure that your natural hair is dry under the wig, you'll feel damp and itchy if your hair is even a bit damp. Rather than matting your hair under the wig, keep them in neat that will make it easier to manage.
3.Wear a Silk Wig Cap
A cap acts as a protective barrier between wig and hair, and they are brilliant at keeping your hair in place under the wig. Better than cotton or nylon wig caps, wearing a silk liner won’t suck out any moisture from your hair. The silk cap also has a lot of stretches and more comfortable than wearing an itchy cotton wig cap.
4.Protect your edges
The strap of many wigs can be hard on your edges, so be careful when removing your wigs so you don’t snag your edges. Also, when you are braiding, make sure the braids aren’t too tight so your edges don’t suffer.
5.Wear a Proper Size Wig
If you buy a wig there is a small chance that it may be too big or small, if it is too tight, then this can lead to hair loss and your edges or napes to break off. For fit and comfort, select your right size.
6.Let your Hair Breathe
Taking your wig off before you go to bed, allows your hair and scalp have a breath at night. In addition, it's better to give your natural hair a break for few days monthly. A healthy dose of air and sunshine can contribute to healthy hair.
7.Wash and condition your wig
All your caring for your natural hair will be in vain if you have a dirty wig on it. Sweat and hair adhesive can build up over the course of a few days, it’s extremely important to wash and condition your wigs regularly.
8.Get a Regular haircut
You beloved wigs don’t need to trim at a fixed period. However, your natural hair is needed. You should have a regular trim to remove split ends and damaged hair. Trimming your hair keeps it healthy and promotes growth. Generally, hair should be trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks.
