The duration of a wig installation may vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of wig, installation method, an individual's hair and scalp condition, and maintenance and upkeep.
The quality of the wig itself will affect the duration of the installation.
High-quality wigs, especially those made from human hair, tend to have better durability and longevity. They are designed to withstand frequent wear and tear, including the installation process, and to maintain their appearance longer than low-quality wigs.
The longevity of the wig installation depends largely on the installation method. For example, when installing a wig, properly clean the skin before applying glue and use the right amount of glue for maximum retention. Both expertise and practice can increase your chances of installing a naturally safe wig. The better the wig is worn, the longer it will last.
For those who are just starting out, having a professional hair stylist help you install your wig may be your best option. If you want to install a wig yourself, you need to read and research how to properly install a wig.
Healthy hair and scalp
The condition of the hair and scalp can affect the duration of the wig installation.
If you have an oily scalp or a scalp condition that affects adhesion, such as excessive dandruff or eczema, the installation may require more frequent retouching. Similarly, if your natural hair is fragile or prone to breakage, you may need to adjust or redo the installation more frequently to prevent damage.
Care and maintenance
Proper maintenance and maintenance plays an important role in the service life of wig devices.
Following recommended cleaning and styling procedures, avoiding over-straining or pulling the wig, gently untangling and tangling the wig when brushing, and protecting the wig from adverse weather conditions all help to extend the installation time of the wig. In addition, regular inspection and adjustment of accessories or adhesives can help maintain the integrity of the installation.
Lifestyle and activities
If you regularly engage in activities that involve excessive sweating, such as strenuous exercise or outdoor sports, the adhesive may break down faster, resulting in a shortened service life for the device. Similarly, if you swim a lot or expose your wig to chlorine or salt water, you may need more frequent maintenance or reinstallation.
