With warmer weather comes great spring skiing. If you’re feeling well enough and ready to hit the slopes it can be a great way to get some exercise and have a little fun. But can you ski in a wig? Of course!
Remember that natural hair wigs act just like normal hair would, so cold temperatures and snow will not damage the wig. If you ski in a wig your chemo wig may need some gentle styling when you finally hit the lodge, unless you like the windswept look!
Wearing a hat will certainly be the best bet to stay warm and toasty, however it may cause an indentation in your wig. After you’re done for the day, running a flat iron over you hair will clear that up. You can also use dry shampoo if you need to clear up any sweat in your wig.
If your wig includes one of our caps that suction to your head you can feel confident that your wig will stay in place as you ski. If your wig does not have this cap you should probably consider wearing a hat or helmet to secure your wig in place while you ski. Wearing a helmet is a good safety practice and will not damage your human hair wig in any way.
You could also choose to leave your wig in your locker in the lodge and instead wear a warm, cozy hat on the slopes. It’s often a good idea to wear a snug fitting liner hat under your outer hat to keep your scalp insulated and warm. When you return to the lodge your wig will be waiting, fresh and still perfectly styled for you to put on.
Whatever you decide, there is no reason you should avoid skiing in your natural hair cancer wig. Keep doing the things you love to do and contact us if you have any questions about your wig on the slopes. Have fun!
