Lack of Maintenance

Ouch! Now this hurts.
When it comes to your scalp and your hair system, that extra care is only what it asks for. Because if you don’t take good care of your scalp then ultimately it will create a problem.
Lack of maintenance starts with sleeping with your hair system on, using heating tools very frequently without applying any heat-protecting stuff, using products that are not good for your hair system, and brushing off strands with strong bristles combs and gradually this leads to scalp irritation.
Wigs are subject to care, they will sustain longer only if you give them the care they need. Just do not go with the flow but follow the instructions given so that you can easily prevent and revert an itchiness.

Not cleaning properly

Lack of hygiene in the hair system will lead to scalp irritation if neglected. Understand how, so if you have an oily and sweaty scalp you are inviting an itchiness to come and sit over your head.
Follow this rule of thumb and wash your hair system frequently or when you come in contact with any physical activities, in such cases try to wash your hair system twice or thrice a week.

Too much Sweating

We really can understand that it is not easy to maintain that sporty, healthy-looking life while you’re prone to the hair system as an itchy scalp is the cause of that accumulated heat and sweat under that wig.
But yes, the cure for that itchiness and accumulated sweat is easy, if you choose to wear a hair system with proper and consistent ventilation, as there are hair systems available in the market that come with a great breathable material to cover up the problem of excessive sweating.

Dandruff and dry scalp

Dandruff is also the prime suspect and cause of the itchy and blistery scalp, on the other side, skin concerns such as fungal and seborrheic dermatitis get triggered by wearing the wig, usually with all these conditions it is easy for the wigs to tape on the moisture and develop itchiness.

Hair Coloring

Now this is tough and should be avoided, and that is to never try to match your natural hair color with the color of your wig, even if you try to do that your scalp may fall into trouble because the first color will come into the contact with the scalp and then after you will wear a wig over that affected scalp so the things may take a bad turn.
