Have you sit on the sidelines and watch your friends swim when you're wearing a wig. People wear lace wigs for many different reasons, such as hair loss from alopecia or simply because of fashion. Although it might be tempting, don't take a leap into the water until you've properly secured your lace wig. With the proper materials and preparation, you can join your friends for a swimming.
Things You'll Need:
Bobby or hair pins;
the lace wig into a bun on top of your head or put it in a ponytail, if
possible, and secure with bobby pins. Otherwise, you can tuck stray or
hanging hairs under the shower cap after you put it over the unit.
Place the shower cap onto your head. The shower cap acts as a second barrier underneath the swim cap in case water seeps in under the swimming cap.
Pull the swimming cap down over the shower cap. This will help protect your hair from water, chlorine, sand or saltwater. You can swim when done.
Remove both caps and all pins after you finish swimming. If your lace wig gets wet or damp, lightly blow dry it on the lowest, coolest setting!
Tips and Warnings:
Use a new shower cap for a tighter, more secure fitness.
After swimming, You can shampoo and condition certain wig styles, such as the lace front wig.
The hot setting on the dryer can cause a synthetic wig to melt.
Use caution when swimming in a pool or the ocean as chlorine and saltwater can damage the wig hair or knots.
When you wear a new wig, make sure that the wig adhesive dries thoroughly before swimming in a lace front wig or full lace wig.
