How do you feel about wigs?

I have very thin hair that shows scalp through and is very difficult to style. I like wearing wigs to fix that problem. I see women at wig shops that I know are wearing wigs and I can't tell. They wear them fiercely and I would never have questioned if there hair was real outside of the setting. But when I wear one I am always a little self conscience that someone would think it's "weird." I am otherwise a very confident person.

Do YOU think it's unusual?

  • no,not at all. Its all about making you feel confident and beautiful,and if it does,then thats good. The new wigs are hard to pick out from natural hair.

  • So many people wear wigs, extensions, weave, you name it, so I don't think it's weird and I doubt anyone would notice..You should get one and wear it with confidence!

  • I'm getting thin and balding in spots so have just starting buying wigs. Actually wearing them is another thing. They look nice but I feel odd in them. I finally found one that looks like the style I might really wear my hair but it's tight on my head! The other ones are tight as well. I just ordered a larger size hoping that will help. Now with summer coming on I have to worry they will be too hot. We'll see. My sister bought me a nice one locally and I have purchased a few online at They seem to have a good quality wig and good sales.

  • yes, I would wear one, you can never tell who is wearing real hair anymore. I tell everyone if I paid for it it is my hair

  • admckenzie: in most wig places you can buy one specificially fitted to your head, you don't have to purchase a pre set sized one
