Let’s look at the tips one by one.

Find Your Perfect Fit

Before we get into the bits and details of everyday wig-wearing, it's important to clear our basic understanding of wigs. 

You can not enjoy wearing a wig if it does not fit you right. Your wig should fit like a glove - comfortable, snug, and secure on your head. To ensure this, you need to get the right wig size and for that, you need to take your measurements right. You can take your own measurements at home using a measuring tape. Place one end of the tape at the lower hairline, at the nape of your neck, and measure all the way to the hairline above your forehead. This will help you find the perfect wig size, ensuring a good fit and a natural, seamless look. 

Choose the Right Wig for Everyday Wear

When it comes to selecting a wig for everyday wear, comfort and versatility are the two prime factors that you should consider. Go for lightweight and breathable wig materials like human hair wigs. Human hair wigs are extremely natural-looking and permit heat styling, while synthetic wigs often come pre-styled and require less maintenance. But then again, they do not look as natural and might not be as comfortable as human hair wigs.

Wig Cap Magic

To keep your wig securely in place, wear a wig cap, it is a game changer. Wig caps create a barrier between your natural hair and the wig, ensuring a smooth fit by preventing slips. There are different types of wig cap options available, such as nylon or mesh, you should pick one depending on your lifestyle, requirements, and comfort level. Wig caps, they also help to protect your natural hair and promote healthier growth.

Prepping Your Natural Hair

Before wearing a wig, preparing your natural hair is essential to ensure a seamless and flawless wig attachment. Begin by flattening your hair close to your scalp using bobby pins or hair clips. For longer hair, consider braiding it or creating a small bun to minimize any bulkiness. If you have shorter hair, tuck it away using bobby pins. Remember, the flatter and smoother your natural hair, the better your wig will fit and look.

Securing Your Wig

After you've prepped your natural hair, it's time to wear your wig. Take the wig and detangle it gently. Now place it on your head and adjust the position as you want it. Next, secure the wig using combs or clips present inside the wig cap. If your wig does not have built-in clips, you can use bobby pins to secure it in place. Feel free to experiment and find what works best for you.

Wig Care and Maintenance

Just like your natural hair, your wigs also require proper care and maintenance to keep them looking amazing. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:


Always detangle your wig before and after use. Take a wide comb or a special wig brush to gently detangle your wig. Start from the end and work your way up. This prevents damage and prolongs the life of your wig. 


Always keep your wig clean. Follow the wig instructions for washing. Use a gentle shampoo designed specifically for wigs and cold water. Avoid rubbing or twisting the wig, as this can cause tangling.


When styling your wig, use heat styling tools with caution, especially on synthetic wigs. Opt for low heat settings or consider heat-free styling methods like rollers or braiding. Always use heat protectant spray before styling to minimize damage.


When not in use, store your wig on a wig stand or in a breathable bag to maintain its shape. Keep it away from direct sunlight and excessive heat. If you are a regular wig user, we recommend investing in a wig stand. It helps keep your wig in shape and prolongs its life. You will not regret this investment.

One of the most exciting things about wearing wigs regularly is the freedom to transform your look effortlessly. Don't hesitate to experiment with different styles, colours, and lengths.

Can I wear my wig while sleeping?

We do not recommend sleeping in your wig as it might lead to tangling and damage. Before going to bed, take off your wig and detangle it with a wig comb. Then store it on a wig stand or satin bag to keep it safe.

If at all you have to sleep with your wig on, make a loose braid before getting into bed. The next morning, detangle and smoothen your wig.

If I wear my wig every day, will it damage my natural hair?

No, wearing a wig every day should not damage your natural hair as long as you’re attaching the wig right. Make sure it is not pulling or stressing your roots. Also, allow your scalp and natural hair to breathe during the night. Always remember to take off your wig before sleeping.

I wear my wig every day, how should I clean it?

It is important to wash your wig after 5-6 uses. To wash it, take it off and gently detangle using a wig comb. Then wet the strands under cold water. Now take a gentle chemical-free shampoo, rub it in your palms, and apply it to the entire length of the wig. Then rinse it under cold water. The next step is to use a moisturizing conditioner. Never skip the conditioner as it helps maintain the health of your wig.
