Whether you are a man or a woman, wearing a wig may seem an unnatural and unfamiliar thing to do. You may feel self-conscious and worry that people will notice you are wearing a wig and be concerned about what they are thinking. You may also feel anxious about how to put on the wig and how it will feel when you’re wearing it, will it itch? will it be uncomfortable? and you will probably have many questions around how to wash and take care of it.
All these feelings and questions are perfectly natural as we are all only human, and as humans our self-esteem is inextricably linked to our appearance, and more importantly our hair. Therefore, if you are experiencing thinning hair or hair loss, which can be two of the most confidence draining things we can experience, you may be considering purchasing a wig. If so you will of course want answers to all the above questions.
Initially losing your hair can be caused by stress, medication or illness and can take some time for you to come to terms with. However, when this starts to become a problem and affects your confidence and desire to socialise, you may find you start considering wearing a wig as a temporary or permanent hair solution. This can help re-boot your confidence and start to feel great about yourself again.
If this is the first time you have purchased and worn a wig you may want to start with a style or colour that isn’t too far removed from your own. This will give you the chance to get used to wearing the wig before you opt for a change of cut or colour.
If you need any professional advice contacting a specialist such as Wigs London can help you select and purchase the best option for you.
You will find modern wigs are excellent quality, very comfortable to wear and easy to care for. They will come ready styled straight out of the box looking amazing and giving a natural finish and look. You can choose to opt for a natural hair wig, or a wig made of synthetic fibres both of which have their advantages. Synthetic hair wigs are the easiest to wear as they retain their shape, require very little styling and their colour never fades. A human hair wig is obviously made out of real hair and therefore will require the same amount of grooming time as your own hair would. However, you do have the benefit of being able to safely style a human hair wig with straighteners or curling tongs to create different looks, which you can’t safely do with a wig made of synthetic fibers.
Once you purchase a wig and are confident with wearing and styling it why not invest in several more and allow yourself to have the fun of experimenting with different hair colours, styles and textures. Imagine how liberating it would be to change your hairstyle 2 or 3 times a week, and try new colours, with never having to use chemicals or visit the salon again.
