Let’s face it, we as black women have a different type of hair that requires a little, well maybe a lot more maintenance than any other race hair texture. Our hair must stay protected at all times and one of the most popular protective styles that I love and specialize in is custom glueless wigs.
One of the main reasons why I love glueless wigs is simple, NO GLUE! Any wig that requires adhesive may be damaging to your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin like me. Wearing a lace frontal wig that requires glue also requires maintenance which means more trips to the salon. Most of us busy women don’t have time to go to the salon every other week, we just don’t. With a glueless wig, you’re more able to take charge of your personal time-something we don’t always get back.
Another reason why glueless wigs are a great protective style is because none of your natural hair is left out. This means no heat and no chemicals are necessary to achieve a flawless and blended look. Have you ever seen a sew in where you can EASILY tell the difference between someone’s natural hair and her extensions? That’s a no bueno! If you are a naturalista, closure glueless wigs protect your natural hair and you don’t have to go through the work of blending it with your weave.
Lastly, with the hot weather approaching, wearing a wig could bring extra heat to your head, however with glueless wigs, you can take them off whenever and wherever you want. This gives your scalp more time to breathe and give you the ability to oil your scalp, wash your hair or just go a day or two wig/weave free. Your scalp will appreciate you more with a glueless wig rather than a sew in or a wig that requires glue.
As a hairstylist and Wig Specialist that has been in business for 4 years, these are the main reasons why all of my clients prefer glueless wigs over anything else when it comes to protecting their natural hair underneath. If it works for them, I know it will work for you and if you have any questions feel free to send me a DM on Instagram @hairbakeryboutiquellc!
