Modern technology has created wigs in every price range, texture, and style. Women throughout history have worn various types of wigs and extensions to enhance their natural beauty. There is no need to have bad hair days or painfully wait to achieve a longer hair length. Here are the top three benefits of wearing wigs.
Wigs can be found in local beauty supply stores, online, and through some upscale salons. Many women wear wigs as a fashion accessory or to give their hair a break. There is never a need to explain why a wig is being worn. Exploring fashion through wigs is a great way to experiment with personal style.
There is little investment in time in changing hair styles created with wigs. Some styles that are achieved in a salon can take several hours. Braids or longer extensions may be done over the course of several days. Wigs offer the benefit of being able to change hair length, texture, and hair color in a matter of minutes. There is never a need to feel obligated to keep a style because it took so long to complete.
Wigs are a great way to protect hair from cold temperatures. Hair that is breaking off, thinning, or has bald spots can be noticeable and embarrassing. Wearing a wig is a fast way to hide the problem. Always wear a wig cap or fitted satin cap underneath the wig to prevent hair breakage from the friction caused from wearing the wig.
Extremely thick or long hair can be braided in cornrows or plats to make the wig lie down flat. The wig can be taken off each night so the wig clips or combs do not further stress the hairline. Nourishing the scalp each night with hair oils and herbal tonics can help nurse hair back to health.
There are wigs available from under twenty dollars up to several hundred dollars. Experiment with a few styles to find a few wigs that are flattering. Human hair wigs are a bit more expensive but last longer than synthetic wigs. Taking care of both synthetic and human hair wigs will help them to last longer.
If there is an unexpected financial bind, consider wearing wigs to avoid salon visits. This could be to stretch hair coloring or hair relaxer appointments. Having one or more great wigs on hand can help create more hair style options.
