Do Wigs and Hair Toppers Damage Your Hair?

Wigs and hair toppers have become popular solutions for women dealing with hair loss or looking to switch up their hairstyles. However, there’s often concern about whether these hairpieces can damage your natural hair. Let’s delve into the topic and debunk some myths.

The short answer is no, wigs and hair toppers should not cause damage to your bio hair. Unless you have a specific medical condition that advises against wearing anything on your head, these hairpieces are generally safe to use.

One common concern is the use of clips on wigs and toppers. While these clips are essential for securing some pieces like a hair topper in place, improper handling can lead to hair damage. When putting on or taking off a wig or topper, be mindful not to pull at your natural hair. Slow and careful removal is key to avoiding any potential damage.

Wigs typically feature clips at the ear tabs and sometimes a small comb at the nape. Removing these clips, especially if they’re causing discomfort or pulling at your hair, is an option. All of the wigs at Wave Hair Collection are glue-less, and should fit securely even without using the clips.

Toppers, on the other hand, come with multiple clips around the perimeter. While these clips provide stability, they also increase the risk of tension-related hair damage. Opting for larger base size toppers can help distribute the tension more evenly and reduce the risk of traction alopecia.

When wearing a topper, it’s crucial to avoid pulling or creating too much tension during application. Carefully unclipping and gently removing the topper can prevent any potential hair entanglement or damage.

Ultimately, the key to preserving your bio hair while using wigs or toppers lies in mindfulness and proper handling. By taking the time to put them on and take them off carefully, you can enjoy the versatility and convenience of these hairpieces without worrying about damaging your natural locks.
