If you're a wig wearer who loves to work out, you may be wondering how to take care of your wig after a sweaty workout session. Wearing a wig during exercise can be challenging, but with proper care and maintenance, you can keep your wig looking great and in good condition. Here are some tips on how to care for your wig after a workout.

  1. Dry it off: After an intense workout, it's essential to dry off any sweat on your wig as soon as possible. Don't forget the lace or roots of the wig as these areas are most susceptible to damage. You can use a soft towel to gently pat the wig dry, making sure not to rub it too hard as this can cause tangling, or opt for a hair dryer!

  2. Freshen it up: Dry shampoo is an excellent option for refreshing your wig after a workout. It helps to absorb any excess oils and sweat on the scalp and hair, leaving your wig looking and feeling clean. When applying dry shampoo, hold the can about six inches away from the wig and spray evenly from the roots to the tips. Let it sit for a few minutes, then use a soft brush or comb to distribute the product throughout the wig. Opt for a dry shampoo like Balmain that doesn't leave any residue, smells great and removes excess oil fast. 

  3. Hydrate: Using a light leave-in conditioner can help rehydrate the hair, making it silky and smooth again. Apply a conditioner like St-Claire stimulating spray to the ends of the hair and work your way up, avoiding the roots. 

  4. Style: Now that your wig is clean and rehydrated, you can style it as desired. If using heat-styling tools, be sure to apply a heat-protectant product to prevent any potential heat damage. When styling, be gentle with the hair to avoid any unnecessary breakage or damage.

By following these tips, you can keep your wig looking great and in good condition even after a sweaty workout session.
