#WigGoals: Wig Resolutions We’re Living by in 2024

It’s the year of self-care and self-love. Here are some of our top wig resolutions that we are looking to keep this year!

Whether your wig of choice is synthetic fibre or human hair, it is an extension of you and how you feel about yourself. A fresh year is the perfect opportunity to keep your tresses in check and feel fabulous. It’s time to turn these simple steps into your resolutions to a flawless look.

Deep Clean Like a Pro (Every 7-10 Days)

One of the most important points of wearing a wig is to wash and condition the fibre or hair regularly – every seven to 10 days. Wig shampoos are specially formulated for gentle but effective cleansing as are the conditioners. It is all important to condition the hair or wig fibre.

Gentle when you Detangle (Daily, if Needed)

The rule of thumb when it comes to wigs – always be gentle. Tangled tresses are a nightmare for both, synthetic and hair wigs. To avoid tugging and breakage, start detangling at the ends and gently work up to the roots. Use a wig wide-toothed comb or a detangling brush specifically designed for wigs.

Bonus tip: apply a leave-in conditioner or detangling spray for extra smoothness.

Be VERY Cautious with Heat Styling

Not all wigs can tolerate heat and if you expose your wig to excessive heat, you might damage it beyond repair! 

If you do have a wig that can withstand heat styling, limit heat styling to special occasions. When you do, opt for lower temperatures and heat-protectant sprays. Air-drying is always the best option, but if you must use heat tools, choose a high-quality blow dryer with diffuser attachment and work in sections to avoid overheating.

Sun Protection Isn’t Just for Your Skin

Just like you shield your skin from the sun’s harsh rays, your wig needs protection too. UV rays can fade and damage the hair, while rain can cause frizz and matting. If you’re wearing your hair wig outdoors, spray it with a UV shine spray. Synthetic wigs do better with wig conditioner and minimal exposure to the sun. 

If the rain comes and you get caught in it, don’t rub your wig dry! Gently blot it with a towel and let it air dry naturally.

Schedule a Wig Fitting

Think of visiting a wig stylist as an MOT for your wig. A professional can give your wig a thorough once-over, adjust the cap if needed, and offer expert styling tips. Synthetic wigs can be steamed to help correct wear. Hair wigs can have a deep condition.

If you are in the market for a new wig, working with a wig stylist not only helps you find the best style for you, they can help you find the best size and colour. 

Wills Wigs offers private, hour-long consultations to help find the best fit, style and colour for you and your lifestyle. As trained hairstylists, the team is also well-experienced in styling wigs to suit the wearer.

Find the Courage to Be Bold by Doing it Right!

If you are pondering a new look or style, don’t hesitate to give it a go. While looking online can give you some inspiration, a wig specialist not only offers you good advice, but they ensure that the wig fits you.

Fun Fact! All wigs come with an adjustable circumference. However, the measurement from front-to-back and ear-to-ear varies. While some wigs come in a choice of size, most styles only come in medium. An expert fitter can help you make sure that the wig not only fits the size of your head, it complements your face and features too!

Embrace Your Wig Journey

Remember, your wig is an extension of you, a chance to express your personality and embrace different styles. So have fun with it! 

Experiment with different colours and cuts, rock it with confidence, and most importantly, treat it with love and care. The more you appreciate your wig, the more it will reward you with stunning looks and endless possibilities.
