Can You Sleep In A Wig?

Can you sleep in a wig?

Yes, it is possible to sleep in a wig. We understand that having hair on at night means a lot to many of us. If sleeping in your wig makes you feel better about your hair loss, we are all for it, but we want you to know that there are some drawbacks to consider.

Sleeping in your wig is not recommended, as it can cause the hair to tangle. The additional pressure on the cap can cause the hair to become inverted or pushed back into the cap. When the hair comes inside the wig cap, it can make the wig itchy and prevent it from sitting securely on your head.

Also, one of the major perks of wearing wigs is that your hair is already styled, so in the morning, all you have to do is throw it on and go. But if you sleep in the wig, the hair will be tangled and matted in the back, so you will have to spend time styling it. In short, to prolong the lifespan of your wig, we advise against making a habit of sleeping in wigs, but occasionally it is acceptable.

What is the best wig to sleep in for sensitive scalps?

The best wig to sleep in is the Encelia headband wig because it is so comfortable; the seamless, flexible design allows the wig to move with you, but it stays snug on your head all night, so you don't have to worry about it falling off in the middle of the night. The cap features a double-lined, cooling mesh that is breathable and lightweight. If you're sleeping in your wig, consider using a silk pillowcase because it will cause the hair to have fewer tangles.

Consider, wearing a chemo sleep cap instead

Our chemo sleep cap may be a better alternative for those who want a more comfortable solution and for those who want their wigs to last a long time. This modern, chic hat comes with a light-blocking eye mask and is seamless, making it unbelievably comfortable. If you are highly sensitive and the little details bother you, then this is the sleep cap for you! It is double-lined; the exterior layer is made of a cooling mesh to keep you cool while you sleep or a lightweight cotton flannel, which is cozy yet breathable!  The interior layer is made of modal fabric, a silky yet breathable fabric, so it doesn’t trap odors or perspiration. The light-blocking eye mask can easily be pulled down, helping you sleep well anywhere—chemo treatments, hospital stays, and at-home recovery. The sleep mask is lightweight and not heavy, making it great for chemo treatments or times when you don’t want a total blackout experience.
