5 Things We Love About Wearing Wigs

Wearing wigs was a taboo back in the day. Many wig lovers were stigmatized due to their love for convenience, versatility, style, and affordability. However, that’s not the case anymore. The modern woman is not ashamed of wearing wigs. Granted, there are still conspiracy theories and rumors in this modern day that try to derail the idea of women donning wigs. Yes, wigs can fall off, but only if not well attached. Yes, wigs can fail to look natural, only if you don’t take care of it. However, it’s not true that people can easily tell if you’re wearing a wig. In short, none of these conspiracy theories should stifle your desires to wear one. Instead, you should be motivated by these five reasons why you should be wearing a wig the next time you’re out.

Wigs save you a ton of work and pain getting ready for the day. This is because, compared to natural hair, they need far less attention. Natural hair just can’t start a day. It needs styling, blow drying, coloring, and a ton of other processes before you can sign off for the day. Otherwise, you’re rooting yourself for a bad hair day. Wigs, on the other hand, are all about storing and wearing. While a bit of maintenance is needed to avoid the dreaded synthetic and unkempt look, the work required is less than that which natural hair demands.

Unlimited Style
Natural hair is not a stylist’s haven. Given the risks of certain hairstyles – such as bangs, it’s harder to commit to a certain hairstyle, cut, or color without the fear of losing it all. However, with wigs, the story is entirely different. Wigs give you the space to experiment with the most dramatic hairstyles you can think of. It can be a new cut, killer but risky bangs, a flurry of colors, or some updo you spotted on the red carpet. This is because, the wigs take all the brunt and damage, while your natural hair stays intact. And in case the style doesn’t work out, it’s easier to switch back to default or switch to another alternative.

Saved Time and Cost
The salon is great for stories, but not so good when it comes to saving time and money. For instance, a trip to get your braids done can take at least six hours and leave you bargaining for an Uber. On top of that, you’ll need to make regular trips to get your hair maintained. The costs can fly to thousands of dollars per year. However, wigs offer a different kind of story. 360 lace wigs at the EvaWigs, for instance, are ready to wear and offer simple styling options such as the high ponytail, that doesn’t need a trip to the salon plus a black card. On top of that, other kinds of wigs can offer even more versatile styling options that can be done at home, with lesser maintenance needs compared to a salon hairdo.

They Disguise Thinning Hair
According to statistics posted by the Huffington Post, up to 40% of American Women suffer from hair loss. While remedies are available to curb this problem, wigs address the emotional impact that hair loss causes on the affected women. That’s because our hair forms part of our personality. Good hair makes us feel good, vivacious, mysterious, and confident. Thus, to the women who suffer from hair loss, wigs help cover up the thinning hair while offering a fuller, confident, and vivacious look. 

Natural Hair Protection
Imagine the effects of curling irons, blow dryers, straighteners, hair sprays, root lifters, mousse, and heat protectors on your hair. These products, despite helping style and maintain your hair, end up damaging it in the long term. And that’s why you need a wig that’ll take all this brunt instead. Besides, wigs also give your natural hair the chance to regrow. However, you need wigs with breathable caps such as the full lace wig and hand-tied wig if you want to encourage regrowth. This protection also extends to natural elements. During the dry and hot summer, for instance, wigs protect your natural hair from getting dry and brittle, which can lead to breakage.
