Health Problems Caused by Wigs

Wigs are used from both men and women of any age, even from children and therefore we have to be aware of any possible damages in health they might cause. They have been used for hundreds of years not only as an extra accessory but also to cover baldness or a bad hair's appearance.

Although there has been development in their construction referring to their quality or nature of the hair used (synthetic or natural hair) and in general wigs' improvements, it is proved that they cause health problems. The following will shed some light on the health issues wearing wigs can cause and answer the question: “Are wigs bad for your hair?”

An example of a person whose scalp was damaged by wigs is the actress Countess Vaughn (picture 1).

“Immediately you have a full hairline. I was wearing it 24/7. 5 years after, the drama came in. The red flag was the oozing, from the ears, from my forehead, the whole nap around my head, the puss. It had a horrible smell. It was painful”
The damage caused by an allergic reaction to lace front glue.

Other complications can be squamous cell carcinoma (picture 2) and worsening the condition of cancer for people with skin cancer (repetitive irritation and microtrauma in the basis of previous ultraviolet (UV) exposure.)
