Toupee Or Not Toupee? That Is The Question
Toupee or not toupee? Ask the Pro Stylist says, “NO!” Be natural, embrace your baldness and be confident.
Happy Monday gorgeous! As such it is time for another Hair Police with Ask the Pro Stylist. Today we want to know if wearing a toupee is worth it?
Sadly, I have been lax in my Monday rants. However, I do have a strong feeling about today’s toupee outburst.
Working briefly within the hair restoration industry, I strongly believe there are better alternatives to wearing a toupee. Like don’t! Because, let’s face it, it is a toupee.
I look around in public spaces and the majority of men, especially in the New York region, do not wear toupees. The fact is these clubs are selling you a commitment of lies. If you aren’t shaving off what lies underneath, your existing hair will be damaged in the removal process. Therefore, any chance of salvaging growing hair is gone.
Additionally, unless you remove and replace your hair weekly, your scalp underneath is building up sebum. Dirt and residue are adhering to the glue and tape. In turn you scalp smells, BADLY, resulting in redness and in many instances, open sores. Sure, there are products to combat this. However, you will not be able to effectively treat the scalp while the hair is secure to your head.
Women are altogether another issue. It is emotionally difficult for a woman to lose hair. Within our beauty driven society it is acceptable for a man to be bald. Yet, when a female is visible with little or no hair, the immediate reaction is one in which questions her health. Fact is, 40% of American women suffer from some type of alopecia. In my professional opinion, buy a wig or many of them. With the vast array available online, you have healthier hair options available while you maintain a healthy scalp.
