Glue-less wigs are taking the world by storm. They’re easy to install and take off, while still being super secure and comfortable. You can’t beat a style that takes only a little time and expertise to put in on your own.
Most people who wear wigs do so for convenience. It’s all about a quick and easy way to make sure that you’re ready for any occasion. But have you ever thought of wigs for natural hair protection? Let’s take a look.
Wigs for Hair Protection
When it comes to protecting your hair, you might not think of wigs first. In fact, you’re probably gonna be thinking about braids, twists, or knots. The most commonly used protective styles are those that you can do with your natural hair directly or with your natural hair and some sort of extension that’s added in, usually by sewing or braiding.
These styles can be made all your own and, although there are lots of advantages, there are also some disadvantages to using certain protective styles in your natural hair.
Protective styles that are tight or used over and over can cause tension on your scalp and actually lead to hair loss or hair damage in the long term. We know all about the hair and edge loss that sew-ins, for example, can cause.
So, what’s the best way to protect your hair that doesn’t sacrifice the style and creativity that you want to show the world? Let’s talk wigs.
Regular Lace and Glue Wigs
Lace wigs are the most common type, and if you’ve tried wigs before, you may have come across these. They use lace and glue to create a realistic and neat look. This process can be a little overwhelming for beginners as you need some level of skill to apply correctly. This can be learned over time, but there’s definitely easier ways to get the look you want.
If you’re not into putting these in yourself, you can get professional help. Besides the actual hair, that’s an additional expense that you’ll be taking on, so it may not be the best option for regular hair protection.
Besides the skill needed to cut lace and glue your wig on, the actual glue used isn’t for everyone. Not only are you risking your edges using glue, but there are some who have bad reactions to the glue itself. It can clog your pores and cause issues with your skin. There are some who are simply allergic, but there are different types of glue, so finding one you can use might be possible.
With all of this taken into consideration, wigs might start to look like too much of a bother to try out, but that’s where we come in with the ultimate solution.
Glue-less Wigs from Protect Our Hair
Glue-less wigs are any wigs that don’t use glue. They’ll usually use things like clips, straps and headbands, to securely fit to your head. With headband wigs and wigs with bangs, the clips aren’t usually needed as the adjustable headbands or straps are all you really need to make sure your wig is secure.
Not all glue-less wigs are made the same. Here at Protect Our Hair, we’ve worked closely with manufacturers to find the best possible way to bring you 100% human hair wigs that look natural and are affordable.
There are clips under the wig to help secure them to your hair, but those are generally not needed. The headbands or straps are more than enough to keep your wig in place. Trust us, your hair is going nowhere.
Glue-less wigs help protect your hair in a number of ways:
- They cover your hair and protect it from the elements like the sun, or cold weather.
- They don’t use any glue, so you won’t be tearing out your edges taking them off.
- They’re ready to go out of the box, but if you want to curl or straighten them, it’s gonna save you from having to apply heat to your natural hair or chemicals that you use to style.
If you’re looking for natural hair protection that doesn’t break the bank or sacrifice style for comfort, you’re in the right place. Start here to browse our collection.
