Wigs have become increasingly popular as a fashion accessory or as a solution for individuals dealing with hair loss. However, a common question I often hear is "Do wigs damage your own hair?” 

When someone is experiencing hair loss, the last thing they want is to cause more hair loss.   I have hair (skinny hair is what I call it) and have worn wigs and hair pieces for years. Unfortunately, for me I still have the same amount of hair - no more & no less.  The advantage is no matter how bad my own hair looks; I can throw on a wig and have great looking hair in a moment's notice. 

However, there are factors that can cause issues and lead to potential damage to your hair. Let me explain, more below and what you can do to prevent any damage from wearing wigs.

Purchase the correct wig size. 

Having a wig that fit's correctly makes all the difference in the world with comfort and you enjoying your wig.  I have learned, last thing you want is to be fighting with your wig all day long.  By having a proper fit, you can reduce friction and the need to constantly tugging at your wig. So, take the time to measure your head.  You don't want to take the chance of purchasing the wrong size wig.  Not sure of your head size?  Visit my FAQ page and learn more about "how to measure your head for a wig" 

Schedule a Consultation with a Wig Specialist.

Shopping online may be convenient, but if you don't select the right size or end up needing to return the item, then there's no advantage and you're only left more frustrated. Therefore, having the guidance of a wig specialist allows you the chance to ask questions, try on product, determine your correct wig size and ultimately feel more confident about your purchase.  If you don't live in the Dallas area, no worries.  Wigs by Dana offers video consultation sas well as concierge service for private in-home wig fittings.  With Dana you will receive a more personalized experience with an individual with over 20yrs experience in the alternative hair industry.  Schedule a consultation with Dana today!

Maintain Proper Wig & Hair Care

Maintaining a healthy hair care routine for your wigs along with your natural hair is essential.  This includes regular washing and conditioning of your scalp and the wig itself.   This will help ensure a healthy scalp and reduce any product build up or unwanted odors on both your hair and wig. 

Also, follow the manufacturer's instructions for washing, drying, and storing your wig. By using gentle products and avoiding excessive heat styling you can help prolong the lifespan of your wig and minimize potential damage to your natural hair.

Cheap Wigs vs High Quality Wigs

Don't skimp on quality. Investing in a wig made of high-quality materials can make all the difference in how it feels and how natural looking your wig appears. The cheaper the wig is the stiffer the material used can be.  Your higher quality wigs often have one or more features such as a lace front, monofilament, or even a 100% hand-tied cap.

  • Go Easy on the Harsh Glues and be gentle when removing your wig.
  • Use a wig grip, which helps to secure your wig and reduce friction between your natural hair and the wig.  (The Wig Secure by Amy Gibson is my favorite.)

Plus, it's worth it to spend a little extra to protect your natural hair and scalp.



While wigs can be a fantastic accessory to achieve a great hairstyle, it is important to know how to care for your wig, how to select the correct size and understand the difference in wig quality.  This will increase your likely hood of having a great experience wearing wigs and prevent any unnecessary damage to your hair or the wig.  Go ahead give reach out to Dana and find your perfect wig style and feel confident about your hair and image.  You are worth it!
