Factors that can Cause Premature and Excessive Hair Loss on Wigs for Women

Hair loss on wigs for women is considered totally normal. Some hair strands are more expected to shed out easier on some full lace wigs than others while curly and longer hair will commonly shed hair more rapidly than a short lace front wig.

But there are some factors to consider that can cause premature and excessive hair loss. You need to understand each one so that you can prevent it from happening. First is excessive combing or brushing that will ultimately break off hair and cause premature thinning of your hair replacement.

Another factor is unattended matting and tangling that would lead to tearing out of the hair. Friction caused by pillows or aggressive shampooing as well as over or incorrect perm treatment also lead to accelerated hair breakage and thinning. Lastly, conditioners remaining in the root area create major, ongoing, irreversible hair loss because it ultimately prevents the root system from pivoting 360 degrees.
