How to Care for Your Wig and Hairpiece When it Rains

How to Care for Your Wig and Hairpiece When it Rains

Caught in the rain? It happens! Keep these tips for wig and hairpiece care in mind.

The fall season is officially here, and the weather will fluctuate dramatically before Mother Nature reaches seasonable equilibrium. If you wear a wig, you might be wondering how you can protect your hairpiece from the inclement weather typically associated with autumn. Learn how you can protect your wig from the rainy season, and visit Wigs and Hair Solutions for a consultation! 

Cover Up 

The weather is unpredictable, and it’s important to be prepared for any chance of precipitation. You don’t have to stay inside just because of a little rain! Whether you’re leaving the house for work, school, or dinner, ensure that you bring a cover for your wig. Consider carrying an umbrella or a hat for particularly rainy days. Keep a silk scarf in your bag or purse so that you have protection from the weather no matter what! 

Use Your Wig Rack 

If your wig does get damp from the rain, don’t reach for the hairdryer. Instead, place your wig on the rack and let it air dry. Synthetic wigs and human hair wigs require proper maintenance and care. Don’t risk damaging the fibers of your wig by using a dryer! Allow the wig to air dry to protect the natural shape and beauty of your hairpiece. 

Wait to Brush 

The rain often brings humidity, which can make wigs and hairpieces appear frizzy and unkempt. You might feel tempted to reach for the hand brush to comb out the tangles, but wait until your wig is fully dry first. Brushing your wig while it’s damp or wet can damage the fibers of the entire piece. Place your wig on the rack, wait for it to dry, and then use a brush recommended by a professional wig stylist.
