Common Wig Use Questions

For those who have just gotten their first wig, or are considering their first wig, there may be a lot of questions. Wigs are a wonderful solution for any hair loss concerns. Below, we’ll cover common wig use questions and some wig wearing tips to prepare you for your new ‘do!common-wig-use-questions-wig-wearing-tips

How do I wear my new wig?

While it’s not quite as simple as picking it up and putting it on your head, it’s not much more complicated either. Most wigs will have a band you can adjust to fit your head, so the wig stays in place. Wig caps will also help keep your wig secure, as well as absorb any sweat.

Do wigs affect natural hair growth?

No studies show wigs to have any effect on hair growth. Many people even wear theirs around the clock. However, you may want to give yourself some breaks for air circulation, but it is not necessary.

Will people know I’m wearing a wig?

Generally speaking, no. Those who you are close with may notice a difference, but with the variety of wigs available to people today, you are likely to be able to find a wig very close to your original style. In this case, even friends may not notice you started wearing a wig. But there’s no shame in wearing wigs, especially for medically-related hair loss.

For many, wearing a wig feels natural, comfortable, and boosts confidence. If you have more questions about wig use, or would like more tips on wearing wigs, come to Wigs and Hair Solutions for a private consultation.
