Wearing a hair topper could be one of the happiest things in the world for some women. But it’s getting hard to stay with a hair topper as the summer comes now. The days are longer and it’s getting hotter. Women wearing hair toppers will have to think about what they need to do with the hairpieces. In this blog, we are going to explore some tips and tricks about how to protect your hair toppers in summer with an analysis of the frequently asked questions about women’s hair toppers in hot weather.
Can I swim or shower with a topper on?
To simply answer this question, yes, you can swim while wearing a helper’s hair. But the other thing that comes along with it is that you would not like the piece you wore for swimming as much as you used to. Here is why.
- both chlorine and sea salt can cause your topper to become dry and frizzy, which then leads to a topper that will be easier to get tangled than ever.
- salt in the water will absorb moisture from the topper hair. If you leave your topper in salt water for too long, the hair will lose moisture and become brittle, and the topper base will weaken.
So wearing your favorite hair topper is definitely not recommended. Instead, we suggest you go with a cheaper synthetic hair topper or one you don’t like much so that you can still keep those you loved for a longer term.
What if I really want to swim with my favorite topper on?
We said it would not bring good if you wear your favorite hair piece to swim. But if that is the only one you take out on vacation and you want to go swimming with it, there is still one thing you can do to minimize the damage that might be caused: wearing your swim cap too.
Even if your topper is very firmly attached to your head, the force of diving or jumping could take it off, leaving you with no hair.
Your topper will stay put and nothing will fall off while you’re having fun if you wear a swim cap on top of it. But be extremely cautious when removing the base to prevent pulling off your topper along with it.
