Wigs and wind

From a client email:

Where I live it can get windy and while I don't go for long walks or anything outside in the wind, I'm worried they'll tangle excessively walking to/from stores, etc. What do most girls wearing these wigs do about this? Is there a way to best prevent it or will they untangle quite easily? I searched online but it seems most info is about the wig not blowing off in the wind, versus being a tangled mess.

That's an amazing question!

I generally recommend protecting your wig from the wind by applying a scarf, cap, or even a hoodie over the hair when in those situations. If you let the hair fly around loose, each strand bangs into another. This causes static build-up. Static is the enemy of your wig, regardless of what it’s made of.

Static causes the hair to stick together, which speeds up tangling. We do not recommend driving in the car with the window down, riding a bike, sitting in front of a fan on high, or any other activity that will blow the hair around violently for this reason.

In these situations -- and many others like it -- you will want to gently restrain or cover the hair to prevent it from blowing around as much as possible. 

Another thing we recommend is the liberal application of a silicone-based product such as our Simply Stylin’ serum to help act as a buffer and anti-static measure.
