Wearing a wig may not be as exciting as donning your favorite cosplay outfit or as geeky as pairing your favorite pair of jean shorts with a worn-in tee. But wearing a wig is just as important for people with hair loss. Wearing a wig can help conceal the appearance of thinning hair, hide scars and scalp conditions, and even add length to lank locks. Whether you’re shopping for your first closure or want to stock up on wigs before the next hair restoration treatment, there are five things you should know before buying a closure wig.
Make sure your wig is cruelty-free
If you’re trying to conceal hair loss, you can’t use products that contain animal ingredients. Luckily, you can easily find cruelty-free wigs. When shopping for a wig, be sure to look for brand names and labels that are cruelty-free. It’s also a good idea to check the ingredients of any shampoos and conditioners your chosen wig comes packaged in.
The weight of the hair
If you’re shopping for a light wig, it may seem like a good idea to stock up on cheap wigs. But cheap wigs may come with cheap hair, and you could end up with a wig that’s too lightweight for your needs. Be sure to check the weight of the hair in your chosen wig. The hair should be light enough to blend in with your natural hair, but not so light that it looks unnatural or feels uncomfortable to wear.
The hair type you’ll get
One of the first things you should do before you shop for a wig is find out which type of hair you have. If you have curly or wavy hair, you may want to shop for a curly wig. If you have straight hair, you may want to shop for a straight wig. There are also wigs that come in multiple hair types, so you can find the perfect one for your needs.
The cap type and fit
Every wig comes with a cap, and it’s important to choose the right cap for your needs. A wig with a small cap may be fine for concealing thinning hair between your scalp and the scalp of your head. But a wig with a large cap may ruin the look of a medium wig or make your head look too large. If you want the cap to fit snugly, choose a cap that’s one to two sizes smaller than your head. If you want the cap to fit loosely, choose a cap that’s one to two sizes larger than your head. You may also want to consider the shape and style of the wig you choose.
Care and cleaning tips before you buy
When you’re shopping for a wig, you’ll see that some come in a variety of colors. Make sure you know what color you’re getting. If you’re buying a wig to cover your thinning hair, you’ll want to make sure it doesn’t clash with your natural hair color. If you’re buying a wig for cosplay, try using a new color to change your cosplay style. Before you buy, try on the wig to make sure it fits, and make sure you know how to care for it.
If you’re looking for a way to conceal hair loss, add length to your lank locks, or simply change your cosplay style, a wig may be the perfect solution.
