How To Keep Your Head Cool While Wearing a Wig

How To Keep Your Head Cool While Wearing a Wig

Staying cool while wearing a wig in hot weather is no easy feat. A wig makes you feel confident, so there's no reason to ditch it during the summer. It can be a challenge, but it is possible to enjoy summertime and still look fabulous.

Check out these tips on how to keep your head cool while wearing a wig.

No Styling

Using styling tools during the hot months of summer will cause you to overheat. Not only that, but it will dry your wig out—both human hair and synthetic. Unlike your natural hair, your wig can’t benefit from naturally occurring oils in your scalp to get moistures. As such, use an anti-humidity spray to keep your hair from becoming frizzy. Additionally, styling your wig in the summer will dry it out, so it’s typically best to limit any styling.


Keep a few synthetic wigs ready for summertime. Human hair wigs tend to be heavier than synthetic wigs. The weight will increase the heat trapped between your wig and scalp. Even though human hair wigs are more natural-looking, they may not be worth it during heat waves. Look for heat-friendly synthetic wigs, as they can look more natural.


During the summer, keep your wig off your neck and shoulders by putting it into a bun, ponytail, or braid. You can find braided wigs for sale online—this way, you don't have to worry about updos for the summer.

Lighter Colors

One of the most overlooked tips on how to keep your head cool while wearing a wig is the color. Like clothing, dark wigs absorb more heat. Switch out your wig colors to stay cooler when it's stifling hot outside.

Wig Liner

A wig liner can be a saving grace during heat and humidity. They help circulate the air between the cap and your scalp. It also has the added benefit of helping to keep your wig in place.

Wash Often

Be sure to wash your wig often when it’s hot outside. Sweat and oils from your face can gather onto the strands and weigh your wig down.

Knotless Box Braid Wig

This wig is fire 🔥

This hair is lit. I mean it took forever to be made and delivered but the wait was so worth it. I'm very satisfied with my purchase. It's the neatness and naturalness of the braids for me.

Knotless Box Braid Wig
Awesome Unit

This is a very nice unit. The braids and parts are very neat; has a very natural look to it. I've gotten a lot of compliments on it. I purchased the small full lace wig; I should have gotten a medium. I do have a small head but it is pretty snug and the ends of the band that is sewn in tends to get a bit annoying, but overall I love it and will be ordering again.

Exactly what I asked for!!!

First off I must say that I’ve been getting so many compliments on my new braided wig!!! The customer service from beginning to end was a great experience. I even had my boyfriend fooled in thinking that I spent hours getting my hair done. Thank you for the dedication!
