How to take care of your wig when you are sporting the GI Jane bald look:
1. DO NOT open your oven when you are wearing your wig. You will singe the hair. I once had friends over and said, “Hang on a sec,” removed my wig to unload the oven and then slapped it back on. A lesson after singeing the hair on a prior oven-opening-excursion…
2. Buy a styrofoam head to put the wig on when it’s not on your head. Also great for freaking your kids out. Mine was my alter ego with crazy Grace Jones makeup.
3. Wash and condition the wig with products specifically designed for wigs, unless you have a “real hair” wig. It will last longer when you care for it correctly. Mine was later used for a Halloween costume when my son decided to dress up as a girl. He was actually quite “pretty.” I HAD to post this pic of him!
4. Remember, as I always say, THIS IS TEMPORARY!! Wearing a wig for 9 months or so is a blip in your timeline!
