Wigs are making a comeback, and how! Led by teen icon Kylie Jenner, who has been flaunting her wig collection, more and more of the fashion conscious crowd are opting for these instead of going for hair transforming processes such as straightening, perms, and colour.
Do it Right
A wig needs to be worn the right way to ensure your natural hair stays undamaged, especially the roots. Conditioning the hair is of utmost importance when opting for a wig especially if you'll be wearing it for a good amount of time. Scalp massages can rejuvenate and vitalize the roots of your hair. It improves blood flow which can be constricted when the wig is on. Wrapping your hair or braiding will not just protect it, but also keep the wig stable.
What Not to Do
Avoid wigs made of artificial hair and those with nylon and cotton caps, especially for long term usage. The ones with netting are best because they let your hair breathe without hindering hair growth. Never ever wear your wig over wet or damp hair unless you are looking for mildew and bacteria! Getting a good night's rest with your wig in place is not a good idea either.
What the Experts Say
Wigs made of human hair such as those worn by Jenner are easily available and look more natural too. One tip Jenner has been quoted on is that getting professional help with wearing your wig is invaluable. She has also gone on record saying that using tape instead of glue is way easier on your natural hair.
Like Jenner's wig stylist Tokyo Stylez has been heard saying, the best part about going the wig way is that it is hair that can be changed effortlessly, should you ever tire of it.
