Wearing a wig with long hair can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be! With a few key tips and techniques, you can achieve a secure and natural-looking wig style without doing any damage to your natural hair. Follow this tutorial to learn exactly how to wear a wig with long hair without damage.
Wearing a wig with long hair without damage securely requires the right materials. Invest in a wig cap as well as the proper brushes, combs, and other styling tools especially bobby pins to help you create and shape your desired look with minimal effort. Look for natural-looking closure or lace wigs; these offer good ventilation while making it easier to blend and part your hair beneath the wig for a seamless finish.
Before wearing a wig, clean and detangle your hair first to reduce friction between the wig and natural locks. Since this can be tedious and time-consuming work, mix up a conditioner bath with one part conditioner and two parts water for an easier process. Wet down your hair with this mixture and use a wide-tooth comb to deeply detangle each section of the hair, curling your fingers around each piece of tangles as you come across them. Working from the ends, make sure that all knots have been removed before putting on the wig.
Once your hair has been detangled and prepped, it’s time to put on the wig. Put on a wig cap underneath the wig for extra protection and moderation – this will help hold all of your hairs in place and helps keep them safe from rubbing against the edges of the wig. Secure the cap with bobby pins around the perimeter to ensure it stays in place. Move onto trimming the hairline around your forehead if necessary before finally fitting your wig on top.
For longer hair, it’s best to knot or braid your natural locks up along the part line and the nape of the neck, as this will help to hold it in place even better. Create a few small braids, twist locks together, or simply wrap them around each other until they form an intertwining mass, which will provide extra security without causing any discomfort. Make sure not to pull too tightly on the strands for added comfort and safety!
STEP 1: If you have long hair and are looking to wear a wig, a great option is to use braids. Create the hair into sections to make it easier and also to keep you hair as flat as possible. You don’t want a scenario where the wig looks bulky. Add bobby pins all around. Once you’ve secured one braid, repeat this process with other braids until all of them are in place.
STEP 2 : How to put on your wig cap with long hair. To do this find any light stockings or a good wig cap will also do. Pull the front portion of the cap up over your forehead and smooth it down at the back. Make any adjustments needed to ensure the wig sits securely on the cap. Finally, carefully drape the wig over your head and adjust it so that it covers any exposed areas of the cap.
STEP 3: Once your wig is on, make adjustments to the wig if necessary but ensure to make sure the wig is secure. Most wigs come with straps and bands. This can be adjusted as you wish.There you have it,a handful guide to wear a wig with long hair without damage.
