We know sleeping with a lace wig can be a tricky task among wig wearers. A lot of you may wonder if it's safe to sleep with a wig on and whether it might damage your hair. We are here to let you know the good news is that it is possible to sleep with a lace wig without causing any damage or tangling. Here are a few tips to help you sleep comfortably in your wig:
Tip 1: Tie Your Wig Back
First and foremost, tie your wig back before you go to bed. This step will prevent the wig from shifting and tangling while you sleep. You can use a silk or satin scarf to secure the wig or a pillow with a hairstyle saver pillow specifically designed to hold wigs in place. These products can also help protect your hair from breakage and damage.

Tip 2: Use a Satin or Silk Pillowcase
Another tip is to use a satin or silk pillowcase while sleeping. These materials are less likely to cause friction and create tangles in your wig. Satin and silk pillowcases are also gentle on hair and skin, helping to prevent breakage and wrinkles and we'll do anything to prevent those wrinkles baby!

Tip 3: Braid Your Hair
Another good tip for sleeping with your hair on is to braid the hair under your wig. If your hair is long enough, consider braiding it before putting on your wig. Braiding your hair will help keep it neat and tangle-free. It will also prevent strands of hair from sticking out under the wig cap, giving you a more natural-looking hairstyle.
Tip 4: Use Wig-Friendly Products
Lastly, be sure to use 'wig-friendly' products before going to bed. Avoid using heavy oils, gels, or hairsprays on your wig, as they can cause buildup and damage. If you do, you can rinse it out with water before you sleep. An alternative is, opt for lightweight hair sprays or a specific wig care solution to keep your wig fresh and smelling clean.
