It’s winter and the cold is biting, temperatures often drop below zero and this can damage not only our throat and skin, but also our hair and our hair systems or wigs.
In fact, hair that is normally shiny and soft, with the cold and especially the dry air that this cold causes, tends to flatten, harden, lose life and beauty… here are some useful tips, we have written 5, all very important… follow them, and you will see that your hair will be soft and silky, as beautiful and natural as the first day.
1 Use ionic hair dryers
As we said, in winter, the air is cold and dry… so it is NOT necessary to blow dry your hair, don’t use tools that tend to dry out the hair shaft even more. Hot, non-ionized styling tools remove moisture from the hair and this is disastrous at this time of year. Instead of using a hair dryer, let the wig air dry in the winter air, if instead you have to use it immediately (if you don’t alternate two hair implants, as we recommend to everyone on our Blog) use an ionic hair dryer, which don’t dry the hair, but protect it. The difference you will see over time is substantial and very important.
2 Use products that hydrate the hair
We recommend using a good conditioner every time you wash your hair and then leave a restructuring cream on for a few minutes to deeply moisturize the entire hair shaft and cuticle. Every morning, when you wake up, spray a good leave-in conditioner to moisturize and soften the hair and comb it smoothly. If you want, a great option is also to run an oil free oil along the length of the hair, making sure it doesn’t fall on the base of the prosthesis, just a drop is more than enough, use your fingertips and apply the oil to deeply moisturize your hair. If you use these products correctly, it will not only make styling the prosthesis easier, but it will also protect your hair from the elements. The Conditioner provides a layer of insulation to the hair and retains its moisture. Therefore, during the colder months, it is especially important to deep condition the prosthesis. Deep conditioning not only prevents frizz, dryness and hair breakage, but can also revive the hair’s softness, thickness and texture. You can also soak the system from time to time in a basin with liquid silicone to deeply moisturize the whole hair, you will find that the dryness and hardness of the hair will become just a memory.
3 Protect your hair prosthesis if you are below zero temperatures
If it’s one of those days to knock your teeth out, with the temperature several degrees below zero, I know it rarely happens, but it still does, in addition to protecting your hands with gloves and your throat with a nice scarf, protect your prosthesis with a soft hat. Yes, I know, you thought the hat wasn’t the best thing for your hair, but if it’s freezing it’s a very useful protection. Use a soft, quality hat, and you will see that the hair of the prosthesis will be protected and moisturized. Don’t be afraid to cover them, the cold dries the hair, the hat protects them, if you are afraid to ruin the front, you can put the hat immediately behind it, you will see that the look will not only be useful but also cool and trendy.
4 Use quality hair systems!
Quality hair, which has undergone less treatment and comes from a superior and more controlled supply chain, assures you of a wig and hair system that will tend to stay more beautiful over time and better withstand the polar temperatures of winter. You will find that if you opt for a superior hair, it will hold up much better than your previous sub-zero implants.

5 Avoid synthetic materials and rubbing
We have talked several times about this topic: how rubbing and synthetic materials are the most dangerous element for the quality of our hair. The pillowcase should be made of real silk, absolutely avoid cotton and mixed materials. This will avoid many problems of knots and dryness. The hat for going out should be soft and wool, please! Avoid acrylic. If your hair is long and brushes the coat, wear a silk shawl or a quality coat.
Last tip bonus!
Do not take these tips as absolute obligations and as definitive duties, the hair prosthesis and the wig should be used as your hair, without stress and without too much paranoia, they are textile products that after a while you must change it for a new system. These tips will help you to extend its life, but use your prosthesis with lightness and tranquility, it should not become an obsession, otherwise the prosthesis instead of improving your life will worsen it, be realistic, don’t worry and enjoy your hair with serenity and joy.
