Wearing Wigs for a Year: Sharing My Feelings and Experience


It's been a year since I started wearing wigs, and I wanted to talk about my feelings and experiences. I just saw a guy on the street who was dumped by his girlfriend after she discovered he was wearing a wig. It made me reflect on the helplessness that balding men like us often feel.


I've also been wearing wigs for a year, and aside from my girlfriend, I haven't told anyone else about it. I thought this would be a good place to open up and share my thoughts. Like many others, I have a high hairline due to genetics, and it's even the M-shaped receding hairline. This meant that from a young age, I had to keep a fringe to cover it up. However, my hair is naturally curly, and maintaining a neat fringe was challenging. Late nights and stress further exacerbated my receding hairline, making it impossible to hide with a fringe.


Although I had plenty of hair elsewhere on my head, my high hairline was a source of insecurity. Back when I was in better shape and had decent looks, I could still use the fringe to mask it. But as the years passed and I gained weight, my hairline kept receding, making me look older and undermining my confidence.


It wasn't until last year that I started exploring the world of wigs. The biggest benefit of wearing wigs is the surge in self-confidence. Over the past year, I've noticed my personality becoming more extroverted and people's attitudes towards me becoming friendlier. Surprisingly, even after more than a year of wearing wigs, strangers still can't tell that I'm wearing one. Even old classmates who I've met haven't figured it out.


While going out, I still find myself occasionally touching my forehead and the clip at the back of my head. There's a lingering lack of security, as wigs aren't a part of me, and there's always a slight fear they might come off, even though the chances are almost non-existent. The ultra-thin, 0.01mm biological scalp fits perfectly, creating a more natural overall effect.


However, maintaining a wig is challenging. Finding the right wig is one thing, but knowing how to take care of it is another. Us guys can be a bit rough around the edges. To tackle this, I've observed how my wife, girlfriend, or daughter takes care of their hair and adopted their meticulous approach. After removing the wig, a gentle combing to prevent tangles is usually sufficient.


Wigs can accumulate dust and grease over time. To clean them, soak the wig in warm water at a temperature below 30°C for about 10 minutes. Massage shampoo into a lather, rinse the wig, and then let it air dry or use a blow dryer on low settings. When not in use, it's best to keep the wig on a specialized wig stand.


Talking about the awkwardness of wearing wigs brings up many uncomfortable moments. Unless it's absolutely necessary, no one willingly chooses to wear a wig!
