Are Wigs Really a Good Solution for Hair Loss Sufferers?

If you have noticed your hair thinning or falling out, you’re probably looking everywhere for a solution. There are myriad choices to deal with hair loss, from taking supplements to using a special shampoo. One of the most traditional solutions is to reach for a wig. But is this really the best solution for your situation?

Wigs have existed since ancient times, so it’s fair to say that wig makers have had plenty of time to improve their designs. Wigs reached their prominence in 17th century Europe when English and French royalty donned them for special occasions like coronations and portraits. As such, wigs became a symbol of wealth and class status.

Pros and Cons of Wigs

But a few things have changed since the 17th century. Today, wigs have fallen out of popularity and many people now see them as a less than fashionable choice. Many modern wigs are also poorly made and look unnatural, making them easy to notice — which can make you question the whole point of wearing one in the first place.

However, many people appreciate the versatility and protection that wigs can offer. For both men and women who start losing their hair, they see wigs as a convenient replacement that will maintain their attractive and professional appearances. Some of the most desirable wigs on the market are made from human hair, which can be cut, colored, and styled to your heart’s desire. Another popular type of wig is called the lace front wig, which lends the user a natural-looking hairline.
