Human Hair Curly Wigs are great to wear in the summer for several reasons. They are easy to manage, need little maintenance and will provide you with a long lasting hairstyle. The better care you take of your curls, the longer your wig will last. Despite what many may think, a well taken care of wig can last you years.
Synthetic or Human Hair?
When it comes to a busy lifestyle and everyday wear, which should you choose? Synthetic or Human Hair? Well, Synthetic Hair needs more maintenance and is not the best suited hair to wear on the daily as it may shorten the life of the unit. Good quality ones will tangle minimally or not at all. Keep in mind though that they are made from synthetic hair so they will not behave 100% like Human Hair. Another thing is that when they are exposed to harsh elements like chlorine or sea water, they may or may not come back from such harsh abuse. So, for the summer and everyday wear, I say a Curly Human Hair Wig is the way to go. There are several reasons why they are great to wear in warmer weather, but I will only mention a few here.
Ease of Maintenance
If your wig is a style which needs curling, you won’t need t do it every day. Twice a week should be good enough to keep your hair looking beautiful. Before you embark on creating those perfect curls, just make sure that you have the hair well lubricated and use a humidity and heat protectant. This will ensure that your curls are protected from the heat of your appliances as well as the elements. For textures with permanent curls like kinky curly, heat styling is not recommended. However, you can easily finger comb and be out the door in a matter of minutes.
Favorable Weather for Curly Hair
Because summer is filled with good weather and hot sun, we tend to get involved in more water activities. Although summers are usually hot, it may be humid. In many cases we may experience summer rain storms which can affect the humidity of straighter hair.
The good thing is, textures like Kinky Curly, Deep Wave and Water Wave love moisture. Actually, the more moisture the better. When water touches these textures, the curls and the waves snap back into place giving your style a revived appearance. So, when you have to be out and about in inclement weather, you won’t have to worry about your hair at all. You may even be welcoming the rain.
The Wet Look
In the summer, the Wet Hair Look tends to be trending. Curly wigs are great for this look. You can dampen the hair and add your favorite curl defining products to get the best curl definition possible. Once you are out and about, your hair will dry, but it will still have that nice wet look that you desire. If your hair gets wet when you are out and about then it’s no biggie because your curls will love it.
