Is Your Wig Causing Hair Loss?

Female hair loss is tough. It’s often pushed under the rug because nobody wants to talk about it. But, it should not be something to push under the rug. 30 million women in the US are affected by female pattern hair loss. 


Wigs are often used to help hide the hair loss. Although they do provide comfort and confidence, you have to be careful with wigs. If worn or kept improperly, they could make your hair loss worse. Also, wigs aren’t a permanent solution. You do have other options when it comes to having confidence despite hair loss. Here are some tips to remember when wearing a wig:

Fit Your Wig

The first step is making sure your wig fits you correctly. If your wig is too tight it can cause breakage around the hairline. The best option is to go to a hairdresser or wig store to get your wig fitted.

Take Care Of Your Hair

Just because your hair is hidden does not mean it is not there. Don’t leave your hair dirty just because it is covered up. Wash your hair on a regular basis. A wig can lead to bacteria build-up. You must wash your hair regularly so that it doesn’t get too serious.

Let Your Scalp Breathe

Allowing your scalp to breathe is essential. Wigs hug your skull causing blood flow to slow down. Don’t sleep in your wig. Let your scalp air out and recover. Purchase a wig that lets your head breathe as you wear it. 


Capped and synthetic wigs can make it hard to allow your head to breathe. They cause you to sweat and they prevent sweat glands from being able to release throughout the scalp. This can cause bacteria or fungal formations to create infections. Adhesive wigs can also be tricky. They burn hair follicles and the glue blocks pores. This is why wigs often feel itchy. 


Look for better alternatives when buying wigs. But regardless of what wig you purchase, be sure you are maintaining it properly.


A Solution to Female Hair Loss 

Wigs are great for a lot of people. But if you’re looking for a more permanent solution, or if you want to let your head breathe from time to time, than consider scalp micropigmentation. 

Female hair loss is not something that should hold you back. Scalp micropigmentation won’t make you magically grow hair. (Most things won’t!) But, it will give the illusion of a full head of hair. The procedure is minimally invasive and the results are immediate. Get amazing hair results immediately with scalp micropigmentation. Scalp micropigmentation is a minimally invasive procedure that covers up hair loss and gives the appearance of hair!
