Maybe you wear a wig because of sudden or gradual hair loss, for religious reasons or because you simply want a new look. Wearing a wig doesn't mean neglecting your real hair, which needs at least as much care as it did before you purchased your wig. Out of sight should not mean out of mind when it comes to the hair under your wig.

Clean your real hair every day with your favorite brand of shampoo. Your hair needs more frequent cleaning and care than it did before you began to wear a wig, especially in the summertime, when you sweat more. Although your hair is covered, bacteria can gather beneath the wig.

Massage your scalp daily. Since your hair is covered by a wig, your scalp probably receives much less stimulation than it does when your hair is uncovered. Give yourself a good scalp massage in the evening and in the morning, working on the skin at the top of the head to the nape of the neck. You may want to use a stimulating lotion especially for this purpose.

Keep your hair short under the wig. You may be trying to grow longer hair, but keep in mind that long hair under a wig may be very uncomfortable and require a lot of care. If your hair is growing, you may want to graduate to a half-wig or a hairpiece for a better fit.

Dry your hair thoroughly before putting on your wig. Wet hair can weaken the lining of your wig and can also become a breeding ground for germs. Your hair under the wig should be clean and dry at all times.

Trim the hair under your wig regularly. If you are trying to grow your hair, regular trimming will cause it to grow faster. If you are not trying to grow your hair, a good trim once in while is essential for optimal hair care.

Beware of dandruff. If you use a good shampoo, give yourself a scalp massage, and follow the other steps. you may not have to worry about dandruff. In any case, be on the lookout for those telltale white flakes.
