The sad reality is that wigs don’t last forever. Just like anything you wear regularly or on a daily basis, it’s going to wear out. You will know when your wig is nearing the end of its life, it will start to look artificial.
With proper care & maintenance, synthetic wigs will last 3-6 months. Human hair wigs will last approximately 9-12 months. You can steam your synthetic wigs if they start to frizz or fray, you can heat style your heat friendly synthetic wig to smooth out the frizz, and you can deep condition your human hair to keep it looking healthy–but sadly no wig lasts forever. Some wig wearers are disappointed because wigs are not inexpensive, but the cost is associated with the labor and materials, not the expected lifetime.
