Popular Myths About Wigs
Wigs often get a bad reputation and despite revolutionary changes in the wig industry over recent years, common misconceptions about wearing a wig still exist. Whether you suffer from hair loss, are recovering from chemotherapy treatment, or just want a change in hairstyle, wigs can be a complex world to dive into. This article will help clear up some of the common myths that are often associated with wearing a wig!
Common Wig Wearing Myths
This is one of the most common concerns for many first time wig-wearers. It's a common belief that the extra weight from a wig will create an uncomfortable heaviness and the cap construction will irritate the scalp. However, quality wigs are now made from ‘breathable’ material which provide cooling and long-lasting comfort throughout the day. Many of our high quality wigs are constructed with a Full Lace Cap style. The material is lightweight, breathable, and stretchy for your comfort. Now keep in mind many wigs may be hot, heavy, or itchy, however when buying a high quality wig the cap construction makes all the difference.
A genuine fear for most wig-wearers is that their wig will fall off in public. There are a few steps you can take to make sure this doesn’t happen. We have various methods such as silicon wig grips, velvet wig grips, wig clips, and lace wig glue that will achieve this extra security.

Women often use wigs following chemotherapy treatment in anticipation of the re-growth of their natural hair. A big myth which surrounds wigs is that they slow the natural re-growth of your hair, however this is not true. Many women choose to wear a wig or hair loss cap during this transitional time to boost confidence and also protect a sensitive scalp from the sun.
The biggest worry for many wig-wearers is that their wig looks fake. It's natural to feel concerned that your new wig doesn’t look like your own hair. However, high quality wigs look realistic. HD Lace Front Wigs are one of the most realistic looking wigs, with a sheer, invisible lace front that creates the look of a natural hairline. Moreover, many of our wigs have extended lace on top. Whether you choose a parted, deep lace style or a free part lace, rest assured the wig will look like your natural hair.
