When to Know It’s Time to Replace Your Custom Fitted Wig

When to Know It's Time to Replace Your Wig

You might be confused about the exact life expectancy of your wig.

Nothing ever lasts forever, and all things must be replaced eventually. You might be confused about the exact life expectancy of your wig. There isn’t a real hard deadline for your wig, you can own a wig for three years but only wear it twice. An everyday wig will break down quicker than a unique occasional piece. How about when you aren’t wearing it – are you storing it and taking care of it properly? Without a set time, how do you know when to replace your wig? If you being to notice one or more of the following indications, it’s time to say goodbye to your wig.

Your Wig Can’t Maintain Its Style

Wigs are expected to keep their style after multiple wears. If it’s a curly-haired wig, it should stay curly. If it has bangs, then the bangs should remain in place. If you wash your wig’s hair and it no longer holds its original style, then it could be time for a new wig.

Your Wig’s Ends are Frayed and Beyond Repair

“Beyond repair” are the two keywords for this point. Smaller fraying is fixable with steaming or a smaller trim to your wig’s ends. But, if the fraying reaches midway or throughout your entire hairpiece, it’s beyond repair and time for a new custom fitted wig.

The Wig Fiber is Frizzy and Dry

Remember how luxurious and smooth your wig felt right out of the box? The fibers were silky and soft. Now, your custom fitted wig is dry, frizzy, and gets tangled and matted much more quickly. If you spend hours of your day detangling, consider putting down the comb and looking for a new wig.

Your Wig is Stretched Out

A wig should fit cozily without it being too tight and squeezing your scalp. If your wig cap has become so stretched out and cannot provide a secure fit, it also has got to go. A sign of this might be that you adjust your wig’s placement frequently throughout the day. If this is the case, think about calling the experts from Wigs & Hair Solutions for any questions you might have!
