Of course, with popularity comes opinions. Different people have different things to say about wigs, and this flood of information can be pretty confusing if you want hard facts.

In this article, we separate the truths from the myths and give you answers to 6 questions about wigs that you’ve been wondering about.

2. Do wigs prevent hair growth?

No, wigs don’t prevent your hair from growing. But like everything, improper use can have unwanted effects. So, next time you hear the myth about wigs stopping hair from growing, just remember that unless you don’t properly protect the hair under your wig, your hair is safe.

3. Do wigs cause hair loss?

Another popular myth is that wigs worsen hair loss or even cause it. This is untrue. Wigs, generally, do not cause hair loss. They might even protect your natural hair underneath if you use them properly.

4. Do wigs damage your hairline?

Tips on wearing wigs properly

1. Wear right-sized wigs

Tight or small wigs rub against your hair damaging your hair, causing it to break or fall off. It is considered good practice to measure your head to determine the cap size that fits before ordering a wig. By wearing well-fitting wigs, you reduce the stress on your hair.

2. Wear comfortable wigs

If you’re looking to prevent hair loss, lightweight and breathable wigs are your best bet. Whether you’re using monofilament or lace front wigs, the best types of wigs are those that do not irritate your scalp.

3. Don’t wear wigs on wet hair

The thing with wigs is that they make your hair dry slower‚ÄĒwhich is why sweating can make wigs uncomfortable to wear in hot weather. Wearing wigs on damp hair can be a disaster for your hair because wet hair breaks more easily than dry hair. Covering half-wet hair with a wig also encourages the growth of bacteria which weakens your hair follicles.

4. Don’t sleep with wigs on

For all their benefits, wearing wigs for too long can cause problems for your hair. Remember to give your hair a break by taking your wigs off before you sleep. This gives your scalp room to breathe and recover.

Are wigs bad for your hair?

From the answers above, we can see that while wigs do not normally damage hair, they can do so if worn inappropriately. So, if you’re wondering if wigs are bad news for your hair, know this: you have nothing to fear if you wear the right wigs the proper way.
