Beware of fireworks near wigs! If you are wearing a wig to a Fourth of July party here are some tips and tricks to keep you and your wig safe during the holiday.
If you are wearing a wig you should not be lighting fireworks or sparklers or be getting too close to them. If it is synthetic wig it could melt if a spark hits it and if it is either a human hair wig or a synthetic wig a spark could cause your hair to catch on fire. Fireworks near wigs is dangerous. Please keep your distance.
We all love s’mores but it would be best to have someone else toast your marshmallows. If you are wearing a synthetic wig and are close enough to get that perfect golden brown marshmallow you WILL cause damage to your wig. Extra long roasting sticks still put you too close to the fire. Let the kids do it for you.
Barbecues and the 4th go hand in hand. Women wearing wigs for cancer patients should leave the cooking to someone else. The heat from barbecues will damage your wig if you get too close. You’ve gone through enough. Relax and let someone not in a wig do the cooking.
If you are in cancer treatment chances are you need to stay out of the sun. If you have already completed your treatment but are still wearing your cancer wig you will need to take some precautions when in the sun. Make sure to wear sunscreen on your scalp. It needs to be oil free so that it doesn’t adversely affect the knots in your wig. Everyone should wear sunscreen but especially those that burn easily need to protect their scalp. Wearing a hat over your wig is also a great way to protect your head from burning.
The Fourth of July is a day to celebrate the independence of our great nation and to enjoy the long weekend with friends and family. With a little added caution for women in wigs you can have a sparkling great Fourth of July.
