Are wigs safe to wear?

I tend to wear wigs on a regular basis as I suffer from exzema dermatitis,and because their is no cure for this my hair is badly damaged and very dry and always keeps breaking.

Answer #1

Yes, typically they are… However, they can become uncomfortable (hot sweaty) it is best to keep your head clean of course & to mind the materials (of which I am sure you do) that are used to make the wig… Now, to understand what would constitute safe. Certain guidelines I was able to research suggest to keep the wig well maintained, now one thing to bare in mind, the materials of the wig itself could very much irritate your scalp. Suggestions include to possibly use a a thin cotton scarf or skull-cap underneath, just to avoid potential of it both ring your skin.

Now, with you’re condition being as it is a lack of retainment of much needed hydration, granted I am sure you are having it treated, it is best to evaluate the possible side effects a wig might cause, just as precautionary measures.

The main one being irritation of the scalp, thus the suggestion of the skull-cap or scarf comes into play. However, wig shops or companies whom manufactures them, and you can find those that have natural or synthetic wigs.

Take care not to expose your wig to a flame, for example from a candle or gas cooker, as real hair will frizz and synthetic hair can melt. Even the heat released when opening an oven door can make the hair frizzy. Do not use the highest heat setting on your hair dryer as this can also melt the hair.

Synthetic Vs. Natrual.

While many people purchase a wig to change their style or to create a dramatic look for a special night, others wear wig hairpieces on a daily basis to conceal thinning hair or to cover baldness resulting from an illness. But no matter why you choose to wear a wig, there are a few things that you should keep in mind before you purchase one and incorporate wigs into your style.

There are many different types of wigs available and they can range from being inexpensive to extremely expensive. For the most part, the old saying, “you get what you pay for,” is true when it comes to purchasing wig hairpieces. The more you spend, the higher quality wig you’ll get in return. And a higher quality hairpiece means that it will remain beautifully versatile for years to come.

Perhaps the most deciding factor that will help you decide how much to spend on your wig is how you are going to use it. If you are only going to use your wig occasionally for special events, you may be able to get by with an inexpensive wig. But since most inexpensive wigs are made from synthetic hair, it is almost impossible to match them up with your existing hair color or to achieve a truly natural look. Inexpensive wig hairpieces are also not finely wefted. That means that more hair is sewn into one weft of the wig instead of distributed throughout the wig evenly resulting in a baby doll hair look if you’re not careful.

Other things to consider before you go by an inexpensive wig, is how you are going to style the hairpiece. Synthetic hair cannot be colored, permed or curled with thermal tools. So, your styling and change-out options with an inexpensive wig are limited.

All of these drawbacks make the natural-hair wig your best bet especially if you wear a wig on a daily basis. While this hairpiece may be a little more expensive, you can color it, cut it and curl it just like you would your own hair because it is real hair. Wig hairpieces made from natural hair also look more natural in sunlight and under certain lights than do wigs made from synthetic hair strands.

Even natural hair wigs, though, come with a wide variety of prices. The prices vary according to quality and length of the hair used and the craftsmanship of the hairpiece itself. Again, you get what you pay for.

If you plan to wear your wig daily, you should also look for wig hairpieces that are light and finely woven. The wig should allow a good amount of air to circulate through the wig and onto your scalp. This is not only for your own comfort, but for the well-being of your own hair. Tight and constrictive wigs can cause friction and cut off the blood supply to your scalp resulting in hair loss.

So, before you buy a wig, investigate all of your options carefully. Choosing a good wig now may save you money in the end because you will probably never have to replace it.

Answer #2

I have been wearing wigs for over 30 years and my hair is long and strong because I drink 2 tbls. of apple cider vinegar in an 8 oz. glass of water before a meal. Vinegar has 93 vitamins and minerals. I wear wigs because they are easier to style and I do not have to worry about heat and humidity. I just put it on and go! Drink 6-8 glasses of pure water daily to combat any dryness you may have regarding your skin. Good luck to you darling.

Answer #3

Answer #4

gernean, well, yeh, just that if you wear one all the time, it will break your hair off if any.

Answer #5

Wigs are awesome, and yes, some people will be able to tell that you are wearing a wig, but not always. Day to day you may not encounter many problems. However, imagine going to the beach, white- water rafting, or swimming with friends one day…. you can’t wear the wig. Then imagine going on a date and getting physical with them after, you’re not going to wear the wig to sleep in… that’s awkward to explain….
