Whether you are losing your hair from illness, alopecia or other reasons, it can make you very self-conscious to have thinning hair or even balding areas. Wigs have come so far and can be very natural looking if you choose one carefully. Following are some tips that may help you make the most of wearing a wig.
Keep it Natural
If you are new to wearing a wig, you may feel self-conscious at first but there are a few things you can look for in a hairpiece that has a natural part and a skin top, or even a lace front for a more realistic appearance. Wigs can be made in either natural human hair or a quality synthetic. You can even have a wig fit personally to your head such as the wigs Westchester County NY customers are finding great results with.
Try New Things
You know her – the gal who gets away with being a blonde pixie one day and a waist-length brunette the next. So why are you afraid to change your part line or go from straight to curly in your wig? Have a little fun with your hair style. In many cases a wig can be pulled into a pony tail or swept up in a fancy do. Some wigs can be curled or straightened with curling irons and other appliances.
Keep it Clean
A clean wig smells fresh, styles more easily and has that healthy-hair shine. Make sure to follow manufacturer instructions with each wig purchase. Mix the shampoo into warm water until dissolved and soak wig for a few minutes. Swish hairpiece to remove dirt and rinse thoroughly. Roll in a towel and gently press out the moisture, then shake out and hang to dry. Never comb or brush a wet wig as it can stretch or break the hair.
You can feel as beautiful and confident in a wig as you once were with your own hair. Choose one that fits your head and is well made. Put your chin up and live your life.
