Do you like to wear wigs and clip in ponytails? What if I told you that the combs in these hair pieces can cause scalp damage resulting in your hair thinning out. Also the use of a wig daily is never good because it suffocates the scalp which can result in slow hair growth. Your scalp needs to breathe in order to be healthy. The key to healthy hair is a healthy scalp.
It’s nice to wear a wig when you’re having a bad hair day because it saves you the time and fuss over having to style your hair daily. I personally own a wig because I have decided to revert back to natural hair and I had to cut my hair off. My hair is only about an inch or an inch and a half long and I am still trying to become comfortable with wearing my own hair out in public so I purchased a wig to wear when I go out.
I noticed that after a few weeks my hair seemed to be thinning in the area’s where the wig combs were in my hair. I also noticed that my scalp was sore where these combs were. I discovered that the wig was damaging my hair so I don’t wear the wig with the combs in hair any more and I don’t wear the wig 24 hours a day. I only wear it right before I go out and I remove it as soon as I enter my house. (My hair has grown back in the spots that it was thinning as soon as I started this practice.) I do not plan on wearing the wig for a long time, but I want to wait until my hair is at least 2 inches long before I give it up all together. I plan that this will take 4 months based on the factor that the hair growths on an average of 1/2 inch per month.
Don’t rely on wigs to be your only styling alternative. Allow your hair to breathe so it can grow. Wig’s and other hair pieces should be a temporary thing. This site is about growing your own hair so you can abandon wigs, weaves, and other hair pieces.
Happy Hair Growing!
