Wigs for Hair Loss

If you are trying to grow out your hair, wig wearing is a terrific option to indulge in. Even if you are just looking to keep up your everyday appearance. You can go big and bold or subtle and natural. Whatever the case may be, wigs can help with your hair care and growth routine without much fuss. Here are just a few benefits of wearing a wig:

Less Damage: Straighteners, curling irons, blow-dryers: all of these cause excessive damage to your natural hair. Instead, try a wig for a quick and fun look without all the exposure to heat harming your natural hair.

Protection: Wigs protect your hair from extreme weather conditions, including heat from the sun. And frizz on rainy days? Not a problem with wigs! Plus, if you have conditions such as traction alopecia or trichotillomania, the added protection of a wig can help your hair to grow out.

Style: A wig is a superior option if you’re looking to still have style while waiting for your hair to grow out. You can change up your look every day if you want!

Tips For Hair Growth

Wearing a wig can be as simple as slipping on your favorite lace front wig and heading out the door. But it is still important to care for hair underneath as it grows out. They key to growing out your hair while wearing a wig is knowing how to treat your hair underneath. While some of these seem obvious to frequent wig wearers, some of these tips may surprise you!

Wear a Wig Cap: Nylon netted wig caps are the best option to wear under a wig because they allow your hair to breathe, which helps promote hair growing.

Dry Hair: Always, always wait to put on a wig when your hair is completely dry. Damp hair can cause fungi and germ buildup and cause even more damage to your natural hair.

Shampoo and Conditioner: You will need to shampoo your natural hair more frequently since wearing a wig can cause extra sweat on your scalp, especially in the summer months ahead. We recommend lightweight wigs with open wefting, which allows the scalp to breath optimally. Always use sulfate and paraben free shampoo and conditioner to avoid harmful chemicals that can seep into the body through the skin. 

Best Everyday Wigs

For most people, their everyday jobs don’t always encourage bright red locks or sharp pink pixie cuts. While these are fun to have, your options for everyday wigs starts here. Check out these wigs that will fool even your colleagues into thinking it’s your natural hair!


  • Lace Front Wigs: give you a natural looking hairline and can be found in any color, cut, or style.
  • Human Hair Wigs:This is obviously the best option if you are looking for convincing, high quality, and natural looking styles!
  • Synthetic Wigs: Brown with bangs or red and rigorous; we have plenty of options so that you can sport long hair within minutes!

Some additional tips for hair growth:

  1. Massage the scalp regularly to increase circulation and stimulate hair recovery.
  2. Take supplements containing biotin, which turn into keratin. This is the MVP protein for hair, skin and nail growth and protection.
  3. Eat plenty of eggs, as they are a rich source of protein and other nutrients that boost hair growth

If you have thinning hair around your crown area, you don't necessarily need to wear a full coverage wig (as fun as they are).
