The Treadmill vs Your Wig 

All you need to know about exercise and wearing a wig! 

Your hair loss should not prevent you from going to the gym and getting your workout in. Exercising is a terrific method to relieve stress, tone your body, and stay healthier,  regardless of the cause of your hair loss: a medical condition, cancer treatments, or just the natural process of getting older. Unfortunately, a loss of hair can cause a person to feel awkward, exposed, or uncertain about their look. Because it gives you the ability to control how other people perceive you, wearing a wig may provide a sense of comfort and security. 

The underlying question is, therefore: is it OK to work out while wearing a wig? The answer, to put it simply, is yes! You certainly may wear a wig to the gym; however, you need to be prepared for your wig to potentially wear out sooner than your other wigs, primarily to perspiration and also possibly any rubbing or roughness that may occur when you are working out. This is something you need to be prepared for. It is strongly suggested that you get a wig specifically to use while exercising and/or swimming. That way, you won’t have to worry about over-washing your wig, as you won’t be using it regularly. If you are the type of person who sweats a lot or swims a lot, you really want to invest in a second gym wig so that you may clean the first one more regularly. 

When it comes to length, ideally, the shorter the better is the case; however, if longer styles are more your thing, we recommend putting your wig in a low ponytail or braid if you 

want to wear it in a longer style. A hat wig is yet another incredible option to consider. A weft of hair is stitched onto the interior of a hat to create a hat wig. This creates the illusion that the wearer has hair underneath the hat, eliminating the need for them to wear a full wig. 

Which type of wig is more desirable, synthetic or human hair? The straightforward response is that it is up to you to decide. Because the fiber that synthetic hair is comprised of does not absorb water in the same way that a human wig would, some individuals believe that it is preferable to wear synthetic hair to the gym because it does not lose its style and dries a lot more quickly. If you want the most realistic style possible and want to vary the look of your wig each time you go to the gym, it is worth it to invest in human hair, even though it is heavier and can be more expensive than synthetic hair. Both of them are excellent choices that will finally make it possible for you to have a productive and stress-free training session. For the sake of your comfort, we recommend that you wear a wig cap underneath your wig.  The use of a wig cap that can absorb perspiration and moisture, such as one made of bamboo or one that is made of breathable cotton, will also help keep your wig cleaner. That way, you won’t need to shampoo your hair after you wash the wig cap since you can simply throw it in the washing machine. One additional thing you can do to make the fit of your wig more stable is to use a grip band underneath it. The band provides exceptional comfort, maintains a cool temperature, and securely holds onto both your scalp and wig to keep your hairpiece in place.    

Now that you know how to keep your wig in good condition while still maintaining an active lifestyle, you can hit the gym with complete confidence. If you are experiencing hair loss,  a wig is a great option to consider. Although at first, you might have doubts about what you are capable of accomplishing while sporting your new wig, after making the investment and witnessing how realistic they seem and how adaptive they are, you will come to the conclusion that you are invincible when wearing your wig!
