Soon it will be the season of warm spring and flowers blooming again. On warm days, the frequency of swimming will gradually increase. So is it okay to wear a wig while swimming? What kind of wig can be worn freely while swimming? Read on to learn more about swimming with a wig.
Swimming with a wig has certain requirements for the quality of the wig. In addition, because the number of times you can swim with a wig is limited, it is not wise to spend a lot of money on a wig to wear while swimming. Of course, if you don't care about the money invested, then you can also choose. Excessive exposure to water can indeed damage a wig, and to keep costs as low as possible, it's best to get a wig that requires glue, which is fairly cheap and easy to replace.
1. Human Hair Wig Vs Synthetic Hair Wig
Human hair and synthetic hair react differently to water. Commercial swimming pool water is usually chlorinated and contains some salt, which can be damaging to both human hair and synthetic hair.
While synthetic hair is best kept out of the water entirely, if you're only using it for swimming, low-priced synthetic wigs can be helpful and you won't have to worry about the cost of a replacement wig. Human hair can cope better with stress. If your wig is made of 100% human hair, you will have more freedom swimming in a human hair wig than a synthetic one because it is more bouncy.
The amount of time your hair is exposed to water can also affect your hair selection. It's best not to wear your favorite wig while swimming. Because the water in the swimming pool contains chlorine and sea salt, which makes the hair fiber frizzy. Chlorine is a harsh chemical that can damage your skin and hair, especially synthetic hair. While salt water will help keep your wig looking fresh and shiny, the salt will also draw moisture from the object, drying out the wig. If you plan to spend a lot of time in the water, choose a human hair wig. You can swim with synthetic hair if a synthetic wig is more your speed. But please be aware of the time limit for your wig to be in contact with water. Otherwise, prolonged exposure may cause the wig to lose moisture and start to become brittle, and the wig cap will also weaken and shorten its lifespan.
2. Use The Correct Adhesive to Secure The Wig
Not all glue or tape can withstand the stress of diving and jumping. To ensure the safety of your wig, be sure to choose a waterproof adhesive. Just be sure to let the adhesive dry completely before you start swimming. If your waterproof adhesive doesn't quite give you complete peace of mind, try wearing a swim cap for extra peace of mind. Depending on the type of water activity you do, accessories such as hats, headbands, or bandanas can also play a role.
3. Can You Swim With A Wig? And Some Warm Tips about It
For the question can I swim with a wig? The answer is of course you can, but you have to be careful because your wig needs your protection. Here are some warm tips for you about swimming with a wig:
- For long wigs, braids and ponytail hairstyles are better for swimming. Because styling your hair this way prevents hair from tangling.
- Wearing a swimming cap while swimming provides safety. Instead of worrying about your wig falling out all the time, you can just relax and have fun while swimming.
- Choose your pool wig carefully. If you plan to swim, it is recommended to avoid expensive hair and try cheaper synthetic wigs.
- Pay attention to hair care after swimming. As much as you've tried to avoid getting your wig wet while swimming, chances are you won't be 100% successful. To avoid lasting hair damage, be sure to wash your wig as soon as you get home, and then apply conditioner to ensure the fibers retain moisture and shine.
