Whether we’re talking about a professional lace front wig or something you picked up to complete your cosplay costume, wigs are transformative.

It’s the end of a long day. You have taken off your wig and have placed it carefully on your wig stand to store for the night. Then, you see it: a tangle. Not just any tangle. This may be the world’s biggest tangle. You frantically grab your styling products and comb and get to work.
Let’s rewind. Are there ways to battle the tangle from the beginning? Like real hair, wigs can experience tangles. In fact, wigs can sometimes be more likely to tangle due to the lack of natural oils of your scalp that natural hair has. These oils work like a natural conditioner that defends against tangles and knots. Of course, it’s not foolproof, as anyone can attest, but those oils help. Your wigs don’t have these oils, so they need your help to stay tangle-free.
All things must be replaced eventually. Nothing lasts forever after all. You may be confused about the life expectancy of your wig. There isn’t exactly a hard deadline for hairpieces. You can own a wig for two years but only wear it twice. An everyday wig will deteriorate faster than a special occasion piece. What about when you aren’t wearing it – are you storing it properly? That’s an important piece of the longevity puzzle.
Without a set time, how exactly do you know when to replace your wig? Much like food beginning to spoil, you will spot signs your wig should be retired. If you notice one or more of the below indicators, it’s time to say goodbye.
A wig stand, while small, is an important tool in maintaining your wig. You will want to store your wig on a stand while not wearing it. This maintains the shape of your wig cap, and you can also lightly style your wig on it too. Proper care can extend the lifetime of your wig and your investment. Considering most wig stands cost less than $10, it’s truly a must-have.
Who doesn’t want perfect ringlet curls in all types of weather? Humid and hot? Curls. Cold and dry? Curls. But, keep in mind if you wear a curly wig, and keep those curls to stay beautiful as long as possible, you have to care for them properly.
There is nothing quite like a human hair wig. After all, you can’t get a more realistic feel than actual human hair. If you are the lucky owner of a human hair wig, you know how important it is to take care of it properly. A well-loved wig can have an expected lifespan of about a year.
