How Long Can You Wear a Wig?


When we mention wigs, because more and more people are wearing wigs to fulfill their pursuit of hairstyle fashion, I believe that most girls have more than one wig. There is a question that everyone often asks: how long can I wear a wig? Today we are going to discuss this question and how to prolong the lifespan of your wig. I hope to help you answer your doubts.

How Long Can You Wear a Wig With Glue?

In fact, there is no standard answer to this question. Because it is affected by various factors, such as the glue you use, how you take care of the wig, the type and material of your wig, and so on. It is not definitely determined by only one element.

However, there is one thing that we could tell you — the glue you use. Generally, the glue people often use is divided into long-term and short-term. Long-term adhesive can keep your wig for 4-6 weeks, which is quite a long time. Julia advises you should choose the glue according to your need, some glue may damage your hairline and your skin.


How Long Should You Wear a Wig?

No matter the wig we wear or our natural hair, they should be conditioned regularly and on time. Therefore, although the adhesive can keep your wig for 4-6 weeks, wearing a wig for a long time is not recommended.  

After wearing wigs for a long time without cleaning and conditioning, they will get a lot of dust and strange smells. For our natural hair, the scalp secretes oil, and wearing a wig all the time can also cause your hair to be unable to breathe and cause itching and hair loss. Therefore, we recommend that as soon as you feel discomfort in your scalp, it is time to remove your wig and start caring for your wig and natural hair.

How To Make a Wig Last Longer?

Another question that people are very concerned about is “how long does a wig last?” In general, with reasonable care, human hair wigs can last over one year with proper care, and synthetic wigs can last up to six months. But there are a lot of factors that will shorten the service life of the wig.

1. Reduce Wearing Frequency

If you want your wig to last longer, the most important thing is to use this wig less frequently. The more often a wig is worn, the shorter lifespan it will have. Therefore, we recommend that you prepare at least two wigs to give your favorite wig enough time to get timely care.

2. Care For Your Wig

Whether you have human hair or synthetic wig, it’s extremely important to maintain and care for them like your natural hair! Various wig care products on the market can help you clean your wig easily and efficiently. Make sure you’re investing in products that are suitable for either your wig. Caring for your wig helps to prolong its life and keep it looking fresh!

3. Less Heat

We often use various tools to style our wigs, such as hair dryers, curling irons, and straighteners. Compared with human hair wigs, synthetic wigs are less able to withstand heat. But that doesn't mean you can use high heat on human hair wigs as often as you like. Please style your wigs with less heat if possible. Because high heat will take away the moisture from your wig, making it more frizzy and dry, and even hair loss.

4. Store Your Wig

In addition to the daily use process, storage is also very important. After washing, make sure your wig is completely dry, then please keep it in a dry place, be sure to avoid a humid environment, because this may make your wig smell or even moldy, which is definitely not what you want to see. You can put it on a wig stand or pack it in a silk bag.


To sum up, there are no clear answers to the questions about how long a wig should be worn and how long a wig can last. Because there are too many uncontrollable factors in the use of wigs.

When wearing a wig, for your health, please minimize the wearing time, your scalp needs to breathe and relax. In addition, as we all know, wigs are relatively fragile, so we need to take care of them very carefully, only in this way can we prolong their service life as much as possible.

Besides, it is also very important to have a high-quality wig. If you are looking for a satisfying wig, Julia can provide you with a variety of human hair wigs. If you have some other tips for taking care of wigs, you can share them with us in the comment area.
