Disadvantages of sleeping in a lace front wig

1. Shorten the lifespan of your wig

Friction between your wig and pillowcase will damage and shorten the service time of your wig. You can’t guarantee you never turn over in sleeping, and friction is easy to exist when your lace front wig frequently gets in touch with your pillowcase, which is terrible for your wig. What’s more, deformation is more likely to occur when you lie in bed with your wig put on. It will take you lots of time to refresh your deformed lace front wig as before. 

2. Need to wear your wig again in the next morning

In sleeping, it is easy to compress your lace front wig so that it is easy to fall off at this moment. When your wig falls off in sleeping, you also need to wear it the following day and care for your wig as usual. 

3. See your messy human hair every morning

It is possible that your wake up with your lace front wig messed up every morning. Maybe you don’t want to look at your messy wig and have a bad mood as soon as you get up. And it is a hassle to take care of your messed lace front wig. 

4. Damage your natural hair

It is detrimental to your natural hair if you always wear a wig in sleeping and never take it off. We all know our natural hairs need to breathe. Sleeping in a wig will hinder your hair follicle from getting in touch with airs.

5. Feel not good and uncomfortable

The feeling of sleeping in a lace front wig isn’t as comfortable as taking it off. It is not hard to imagine how free it is when we take off it in sleeping. At this time, your scalp will be relaxed and emancipated from the shackles so that your whole body can enjoy such a relaxed moment.

So, you may wonder that whether you can sleep in a lace front wig. The answer is YES. As long as you take measures to protect your wig in sleeping, you can definitely sleep in a lace front wig despite of those disadvantages. CYWIGS has the following suggestions for you.
