Hair Wigs: Yay or Nay?

We’ve all seen our favourite celebrities ace their hair game by wearing different types of hair wigs. The question is: can you do the same? Let’s find out.

It can be understood as a head covering that’s generally made from animal hair, human hair or synthetic fibres.

Hair wigs are worn by different people for different reasons. While some people like to change their hairstyles others simply wear wigs to hide their hair loss. They are a cheaper and less intrusive alternative in either of the cases.

With celebrities like Dolly Parton, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Tina Turner popularizing the use of wigs, youngsters can be seen quite excited about the whole trend.

Pros of Hair Wigs:

1. Protects your natural hair

Wigs protect your hair from all kinds of hair damages. Regular hair styling can damage your natural hair at a young age. From pollution to frequently colouring your hair, they prove to be the cheapest and most effective solution. 

 

2. Restyling on a budget

Wigs give you the freedom to change your hairstyle as and when you want and require almost no effort. Which means no more countless hours of sitting and curling/straightening your hair or colouring your hair.

You can also play with the length of the hair by switching between short and long wigs.

 

3. Covers defects

Wigs can be a lifesaver for people dealing with alopecia. It’s easy to hide the bald patches and have a natural look at the same time.

 

Disadvantages of Hair Wigs

1. Handle with care

Wigs require proper attention and care. You will have to regularly clean, detangle and wash them to keep them looking fresh (and hygienic). 

 

2. Damage your natural hair

Carrying a different wig is occasional but if you wear wigs every day, it may lead to suffocation of your natural hair. Which in the long run might cause permanent damage like thinning or breakage of hair. 

 

3. Professional assistance

From picking out a hair wig that suits you to choosing the type of wig that’s best for you, there’s a lot to consider. You need professional assistance if you’re doing this for the first time, especially if you want to learn how to properly wear the wig to give a natural appeal.

The cost of such assistance ranges upon the professional and the salon you wish to work with but can be quite expensive if you choose a fancy salon.
