How To Wear A Wig To The Gym

Your intense workouts increase your sweat levels and also your level of not caring what your appearance may look like at that particular moment. But when you wear wigs, you may be carrying an extra bit of apprehension: “What wig should I wear?” It is messy, drenched in sweat, in need of a wash, and half of the strands stick to your face relentlessly. While counting reps, you want to make sure that your wig stays in place and you can focus on your workout. There are a few things to consider.

Step 4: Add extra security with a headband if desired.


Wigs for the gym


With a long wig, the weight of the hair will add security to keep the wig in place. Note that it's always a good idea to use synthetic wigs at the gym, as human hair wigs are an investment and should be handled gently as much as possible.
