Wigs have become an integral part of today’s fashion industry. Outfits are considered incomplete without proper & matching hairstyles. When it comes to style your natural hair with chemicals and do potential damage to them, people usually move to use wigs for styling purposes and what’s better than the generic human hair wigs?
Like natural hair, if not taken care of properly, Human hair wigs are also prone to wear and tear that might be irreparable. Replacing them, in that case, would be the only option you’ve got.
Here’s how you can envisage the time when you need to replace your wigs.
Look for Signs of Wear and Tear
The first step to check the quality would be looking into the details of your wig at a specific time. Assuming that you have bought it quite a time ago, you might want to check the following few signs that will dictate the present situation of your wig.
1. Hairstyles Are Not Retained Anymore
Not just a Human Hair Wig but for any given type, one of the most prominent signs of degradation and wearing is the diminished hairstyle retentivity of the wig. It means that the hairstyle you set on the wig is no longer held by the it and they are easily disturbed.
2. The Hair Have Lost Their Shine
The next part comes with the dryness that sucks every drop oil from the natural human hair strands used in making the wig. This not only decreases the shine and luster but also endorses significant effects on the health as well as the look of it overall.
3. Frayed Ends
Obviously, frayed ends indicate worn-out hair strands and they are the visible arguments from the wig itself that it has completed its lifespan. Therefore, the second you see frayed ends on your human hair wigs, consider buying new ones instead of cutting the edges and using them for the time being, unless it is extremely important.
4. Not Tamable Anymore
Dryness and Fizziness are very common problems in old as well as new ones and they can be easily solved by using conditioners, oils, and other hair care products. However, when repeated use of these products has no effect on the condition of your wigs, you are recommended to buy a new one instead of wasting these valuable products on a lost cause (your old wig).
5. Wig Cap is Deformed
The wig cap is the best illustrator of a it quality and health. While it shows how well is it made, it also depicts how well it is actually doing. Take a look at the cap of your wig by turning the it upside down and then inside out. Check if it is deformed in terms of elasticity, diameter, wear and tear, and of course, stretching.
If you find any of the above problems in a wig, you can be confident about the fact that it has suffered irreparable damage and can not be used further as effectively as you might have used it back in time.
