This is a frequently asked question among those new to wigs, and we understand its importance. Hair is often a significant part of one's identity and self-expression. If you're dealing with hair loss or thinning, this topic is likely top of mind.

In this article, we'll cover all you need to know about maintaining natural hair growth while wearing a wig, providing you with the confidence to embrace your wig-wearing journey.


Does Wearing a Wig Hinder Hair Growth?

No, wearing a wig does not inhibit hair growth. However, if your natural hair isn't properly cared for while under a wig, it can become damaged, which may affect its growth. To ensure your natural hair remains healthy, we recommend following our blog post's nine easy steps for wig-wearing hair care.


Can Wearing a Wig Contribute to Hair Growth?

In fact, wearing a wig can be part of an effective hair care routine that promotes natural hair growth. Many people choose to wear wigs to avoid the damage that can result from styling, environmental exposure, and daily handling.



1. Regularly Clean Your Natural Hair

Maintaining cleanliness of your natural hair under the wig is crucial. The warmth generated under a wig can lead to increased scalp sweating. Regular washing helps prevent heat-related issues and ensures your hair remains healthy.

Use a sulfate and paraben-free shampoo to avoid harmful chemicals that could negatively impact hair growth. Balance is key: moisturize your hair or use a hair mask if it's dry, but avoid excess moisture if your hair is naturally oily. Before wearing your wig, ensure your hair is completely dry to prevent bacterial growth.

2. Keep Your Wig Clean

A clean wig contributes to a clean scalp and extends the lifespan of your wig. Different cleaning methods apply to human hair and synthetic wigs, so use appropriate wig care products. Check our guides for washing tips to avoid damage.

3. Minimize Hair-to-Wig Contact

Creating space between your hair and the wig is vital for healthy growth by reducing bacterial and residue buildup. Here's how:

A. Wrap your hair or opt for protective styles like loose braids to reduce contact.
B. Use a wig cap to provide a protective layer and enhance the natural look of your wig.
C. Take breaks from wearing your wig and alternate with headwear like scarves and turbans to give your scalp a break.

In conclusion, cleanliness and protective measures are essential for healthy hair growth while wearing a wig. If you have more questions about the wig-wearing experience, leave them in the comments or refer to our expert guide on wig wearing for additional tips.
