There is much speculation on how long a wig can be kept in. The great thing about human hair wigs is the better you take care of them, the longer they will last. Today, we’re going over the question of exactly how long can you keep a wig on and covering some simple things you can do to lengthen their lifespan.

The most common answer to this question is that it really depends on the type of wig you use, your hairstylist's skill, how fast your hair grows, how much you follow natural hair wig care guidelines and a few other factors.

But the right answer is: it depends on the chemical composition of the adhesive you use.Some adhesives are short-term and you can take them off and rewear them every day, while others can leave them on for a few weeks (4-6 months).You should choose the right glue or it will damage your edges.

Usually:A lace front wig can be left on for up to six weeks with long term adhesive. The length of time a lace front wig can be left on is really defendant upon what method and products were used to apply the wig, as well as body chemistry.

Tips To Make Your Wig Last Longer

1.Wear Your Wig Less Often 

If you wear an wig everyday, you may need to consider buying two wigs and rotating them. The less you wear your wig, the longer it will last. Besides that, rotating will allow you to care properly for your wigs on “off” days.

2.Take care of your wigs If you are combing the wig after use, cleaning it with right shampoo and hair conditioner, and following all the usage guidelines shared by top wig suppliers and designers, then, your wig will have a long life.

3.Styling your wig

When using heated styling products such as straighteners and curlers, we recommend using the lowest setting possible, using plenty of heat styling protection products and not using the styling products anywhere near the root of the hair.

It is always better to style wigs when wet, using rollers, rather than using heated styling products – this is the best way to prolong your wigs life, however it is not always practical.

4.Storing your wig

When you’re not wearing your wig, it should always be stored on a wig stand away from excess heat, damp and direct sunlight. If you need to travel with your wig, use a wig stand and wig box to ensure it doesn’t become damaged or misshapen during your journey.

 Wigs can give us a beautiful appearance and confidence, so it is necessary to take good care of them.
