Default can healthy hair grow under wig

So for any one who read my intro. you'll know i am new here...last week i decided to just cut off most of my hair...there wasnt alot anyway.. ..and what was there was in bad condition...

anyway after I cut my hair, I realized "I cant go to work like this" so I have decided to wear a wig for a while..

does any one know if this will affect healthy hair growth in a negative way?

I did exactly the same thing in 1999 (cut off all of my hair and wore wigs), then went to braids and phony-ponytails, etc. My hair grew back strong and healthy under those wigs. Good luck!

I've worn wigs off and on for the past few months and it has really helped to retain my growth

My hair is growing like weeds under this lacefront. Its definitely beneficial. The only suggestion i would have is to make sure the wig is well ventilated so that your hair underneatch can breathe.

I think wearing wigs as helped me retain length on occasion. It's really up to you and how well you take care of the hair underneath.

Good luck!

I wear 3/4 wigs which are pretty well ventilated underneath as someone else mentioned. Just make sure not to put to much stress on your hair underneath. I have been rocking these things for a hot minute (while taking good care of my hair) and my hair is growing....

Yes it sure can!!! Make sure you are consistent with caring for your hair underneath...regular washing, conditioning, moisturizing, oiling, trims as/if needed...

yep!! I'm still growing but you can check my album. It does work if you take care of your hair underneath. I'm looking into a 3'4 one now for the winter and a contemplating a lacefront.

3/4 wigs, some call them 1/2 wigs. They are wigs that you can comb your own hair over the front. They have been a moneysaver and timesaver for me! I get mines from the hair store but they sell them online also. I will see if I can find a link

They are kind of pricey on the site. I get mines from $20 to $25 at the hair store. But they do show some nice styles

Absolutely, positively YES!!! A stylist caused all my hair to fall out in 2004. I had less than 1/2 inch I wore my wig, used Blue Magic and Perm Repair and my hair was touching my shoulders in 1 year. Keep it clean and use a wig cap. You're on you way. Even after you reach your goal, a wig is a great way to always have ready to go hair!!!!!

Default Re: can healthy hair grow under wig

I have been wearing wigs for a year now. i am natural. it helped me while growing my hair out. i dont wear a wig cap though. I lost a patch of hair at the site where the wig cap was resting. I am now struggling to regrow that area. had to go to the derm and md. I would say be careful of the wig cap. now that I dont wear the wig cap my hair has room to breathe. I condition my hair and moisturize every night as usual. I also have to massage my scalp every night to get the blood flow going, in areas where the wig might be tight when i first buy it. it wears out in 2 weeks or so, comfy enough for my scalp. I buy the one with the mesh for 90 dollars. it lasts me for atleast 3 months. even if it tears I sew it up just to make sure i get my money's worth.

I've been wearing half wigs and what I can tell you is...
- The mesh wig caps allow for better ventilation to your scalp than the stocking caps
- Take care of your hair underneath as if you weren't wearing a wig... but you can get away with not having to comb it, etc.

Your hair will benefit greatly from wearing wigs... keeps your hair warm in the winter, and blocks out the damaging rays of the sun in the summer

Default Re: can healthy hair grow under wig

Wigs are my babies' daddies.

Seriously though, I started wearing wigs this year as an alternative to styling my hair everyday. I have two 3/4 wigs, one simple black and about APL, the other with brown highlights and Spanish waves, and about Midback length (that's the party wig y'all ). Between those two and my phony ponies, I'm able to keep my hair manipulation on the low end. And my hair's been growing really nicely. I don't wear wig caps because they give me headaches, my head's too big and the elastic grips too tight.

They are especially a livesaver now that it's cold. My head's always nice and warm!

Default Re: can healthy hair grow under wig

i took my cornrows out last night and i found that Giovanni Pro-Fusion leave-in kept my hair very moisturized. It wasnt dry at all My hair has had no heat for almost 13 weeks now (except going to Balisi to get it straightened for a progress report at week 8). I am a little afraid to go much longer because i dont want breakage. Wigs definitely are my new best friend...my new unit is arriving on friday and i cant wait.

Side Note: I took my cornrows out and i felt like my hair was natural...i give it to you natural ladies. i dont see how u do it
