Wigs verses Hair Extensions


You've spent months, if not years, growing out your natural hair. You may have even endured some pretty brutal haircuts to get rid of damaged ends and make your hair as healthy as possible. Now that you're finally ready to wear your gorgeous new 'do, it's time to think about putting on a wig or extensions. While this might seem simple enough, there are actually a few things you need to keep in mind when wearing wigs and extensions—including some tips for choosing the right materials for your style.

Tips for Wearing Wigs and Hair Extensions

Wigs and extensions can be a great way to add volume and length to your hair. You can also use them to cover up any thinning or bald spots you may have, as well as change your style entirely. The best part is that they'll work with any type of hair; there's no need to worry about whether or not they're compatible with your natural locks!

Take a break from your wigs and extensions.

If you have been using wigs or extensions for an extended period of time, it is important to take a break from wearing them. Wearing your hair in the same style with synthetic fibers can cause damage to the hair. When this happens, the hair may appear brittle and dry with split ends. Taking a break gives your natural locks some time to breathe so they can rejuvenate themselves without being weighed down by long-term styling products and heat appliances like curling irons or flat irons.

You should also always use wig or extension-safe products when washing or maintaining these items because they are made from different materials than real human hair. Synthetic fibers aren't made from animal fur so they don't need special care when washing them; however, lace front wigs might require extra attention due their delicate nature (see below).

When prepping for an event such as New Year's Eve or Halloween where you plan on wearing one of these styles for several hours at a time without taking breaks in between changing outfits (or even before bed), be sure not only know how much product goes into each step but also which applicator method works best: fingers vs brushes/combs/sponges etc...

Let your hair breathe.

You should not wear your wig or extensions too tight. This can cause hair loss due to friction and heat buildup, which will damage the cuticle. If you're using a lace front wig, make sure you've purchased one that's properly sized to fit your head and face shape (a wig may look great on someone else but be too big for your face).

To ensure that your natural hair stays healthy In terms of maintenance, we recommend washing a human-hair wig once every two weeks (more often than this could cause tangling) with cold water only; avoid using heat styling tools on synthetic fibers like clip-in extensions (to prevent heat damage).

If you're worried about heat damage, it's always best to use a heat protectant spray or serum before styling your hair with a flat iron or curling wand. This will help to protect your natural hair from the harsh effects of heat.

Always use wig or extension-safe products to wash and maintain your hair.

  • Always use wig or extension-safe products to wash and maintain your hair.

  • Avoid shampoos, conditioners and styling products that have alcohol, parabens, sulfates and other harsh ingredients. These can damage the fibers of your wig or extensions.

  • Use a good quality wig shampoo for cleaning the human hair (this is different from regular shampoo). It should be free of sulfates and safe for chemically treated hair. A good quality hair dressing product works well on synthetic wigs as well as human hair ones too – just don't use it if you're allergic to artificial ingredients!

Pre-style your wig or extensions before you put them on.

Before you put the wig on, use a wig brush to gently smooth and detangle the hair. This is especially important when you’re wearing synthetic hair because it doesn’t hold a style as well as human hair does. A wig net will keep your wig in place and protect your natural hair from being caught in clips or bobby pins that are holding up the wig. Use a wig spray adhesive – NOT hairspray – to keep all of your wigs in place and make them last longer!

Use accessories and styling products to make the most of your wig or extensions.

Hairpins can be a great way to help your wig stay in place, and you can also use them to create some interesting looks. If you have short hair and decide to wear a long synthetic wig, consider how much of your hair is visible under the wig. You may want to wear some accessories with it such as a headband or earrings that will draw attention away from the fact that only part of your head is covered by the costume.

When styling wigs, hairspray is one of the best products for holding everything in place. It allows for both movement and control over where each strand hangs on different parts of the head without causing damage or discomfort when used correctly! Try not using too much at first since strong hold sprays tend towards being stiffer than lighter hold ones (which are more flexible).

Choose the right materials for your style.

You’ll want to choose a wig that matches your hair texture, which is the most important factor in choosing a new look. If you have fine hair, you can buy a coarse-textured wig and use styling products to give it more volume. Wigs can be styled with heat tools like curling irons or flat irons. They also come in different lengths: long, medium and short styles are available for all types of people.


Other considerations include skin tone and face shape: if these two aspects don't match then it could make wearing the wig uncomfortable to wear over time because it won't fit correctly on your face -- especially if it doesn't match perfectly in color either! Luckily there are so many options out there nowadays; most brands produce multiple colors within one style just so that everyone has something suitable for themselves!

Wearing a wig is a great way to have fun with your look, but it's important that you choose the right style for your face shape and hair type. If you’re not sure which wig is best for you, consult a professional stylist or visit them in store!

When you’re trying to find the right wig, it’s important that you consider your face shape. If you want to make sure that your wig matches your natural hair color and skin tone, then look for brands that offer a variety of colors in each style. Some companies even make different styles within one color; so if you see two or three different shades of black but aren’t sure which one will fit best with what you already have, try them all on!

Wig and extension maintenance can be simple, so long as you choose the right products and accessories.

Wig and extension maintenance can be simple, so long as you choose the right products and accessories. It’s important to use wig or extension-safe products to wash your hair, and pre-style your wig or extensions before you put them on. Use styling products like hair spray or wax to give your hair more volume, hold it in place and add shine. You can also accessorize with clip-on bangs, hairpieces for volume at the roots or even a plastic headband for extra support.


Wigs and extensions are a great way to get the look you want without damaging your own hair. When worn properly, they can last for years and even decades. However, it is important that you take care of them properly so they don’t become damaged or fall apart prematurely. The best way to do this is by using high-quality products like wig shampoo and conditioner, which will keep your wig looking beautiful for more time than if you just washed it with regular shampoo from the grocery store! And remember: always use a styling product before putting on your wig or extensions so that your hair looks healthy when it goes up under there too.
