Can Wigs Damage Your Hairline?

A common trend in today’s fashion scene is the use of wigs as opposed to having a permanent hair-do. While this is convenient and classy, which may explain its rising popularity among women, both professionals, and others, there may also be a downside to this trend.

  • Neglect for Your Natural Hair
  • The Temptation to Give Your Hair A Natural Look
  • Frequent Use of Wigs
  • The Use of Harmful Adhesives
  • Wigs Come in Different Sizes
  • Damp Hair

Wigs can among other things enable a woman to switch up her look anytime she desires. Wigs come in different shades and styles and are made to answer almost every fashion question that abounds in the fashion world today. While it is true that wigs are capable of shielding our natural hair from some conditions that usually cause harm to the hair and hairline, such as the use of excessive heat during a blow-dry process, the rain and sun are all known to be harmful to the hair, the use of wigs too can potentially harm our hair and recede the hairline.

So, while embracing this trend may be a good idea, it may also damage your hairline. These are some ways the excessive use of wigs can damage the hairline.

• Neglect for Your Natural Hair

Most people only care about things that can be seen and appreciated by everyone, and in this case, it is the wig that gets all the attention, leading to the eventual neglect of the hair and scalp and this may cause its decline. Ideally, the natural hair should be washed with a good shampoo and conditioned regularly to get the best results. Good oils and hair pomade should also be applied lavishly on the hair to enable it to look its best, even when it is under a cap. The use of a good scalp cleaner is also recommended to remove scalp buildup like dirt and oil even when the hair is under a wig. Ironically, we tend to neglect our natural hair because we intend to use wigs over it, forgetting that at the close of the day, we would still expose our natural hair, as we cannot wear a wig for twenty-four hours in a day.

• The Temptation to Give Your Hair A Natural Look

Yes, we all desire to look our best at all times, and mostly when we are dressed, one trick that enhances our look when we have a wig on is dressing the front of the wig in what is popularly called the baby hairs style, while this is one great beauty trick, it can have a very harmful effect on our hair. This is so because the wig is drawn back slightly to expose some parts of the natural hair which is then styled to produce a natural look. This act puts a lot of pressure on the hairline and can severely damage it.

• Frequent Use of Wigs

There are a lot of great wigs out there that are readily available for purchase. The flexibility of wearing various wigs and its ubiquity may make the temptation of wearing wigs all the time a little bit too difficult to resist. While this is understandable, we need to also appreciate the risk that comes with act. Covering our natural hair all the time with wigs may not be such a great idea after all as this act greatly affects the health of our hair, therefore taking a break from wearing wigs occasionally is a welcomed idea.

• The Use of Harmful Adhesives

Adhesives such as glues and various bonds are used to hold some types of wigs in place, like the lace wigs. These adhesives come in various strengths and their principal duty is to hold the wig securely in place to prevent them from falling off. These adhesives contain chemicals that may be dangerous to the hairline and can cause damage to the hairline. It is almost impossible to avoid the use of glue(s) in fixing wigs, great caution must be applied in wearing and removing the wig from the scalp to limit the damage that may occur to the hair. If applied incorrectly, adhesives can greatly destroy the hairline. They should be avoided and if they must be used, they should be kept from having contact with the natural hair. Mild adhesives are better than harsh ones, which may be more difficult to take off.

• Wigs Come in Different Sizes

It is common knowledge that wig caps come in different sizes. Some are big, medium and small. It is difficult to find a wig that fits perfectly. A wig that is too tight may produce a beautiful effect on your face, but a wig that is too tight may cause headache, and also strain the hairline and lead to its eventual hair loss. The band that is used to make wigs is usually customized to fit various head sizes, so that finding a wig that fits perfectly on your head may be a herculean task. To avoid the discomfort that comes with wearing ill-fitting wigs, you may need to have your head measured and have your wig specifically made to fit your head. The cost of acquiring a bespoke wig should be taken into consideration too.

• Damp Hair

Sometimes the temptation to wear a wig over your hair, even when it is not totally dry is always there. This may be due to time constraints or general oversight. Wearing a wig over wet hair is a very harmful habit as there is no room for the hair to dry anymore, as the wig completely shields air from reaching the hair and this makes it impossible for the hair to get dry.

From the foregoing, it is clear that wearing wigs are a great idea, as they protect the hair from harsh weather conditions that can destroy it, wigs come in different styles, wigs are convenient to wear and can be changed to fit any occasion, wigs are fun to wear, and so on, they can also damage the hairline. But if care is taken to protect your hair and wig, then the damage will be minimal.
