Can I Wear A Lace Front Wig If I Have Alopecia?
Daliyah Sally is one of our customers. She's 21 years old and has been suffering from Alopecia for almost three years. It was an October day. She woke up and found full of hair on her pillow. She had a hard time staying confident because she got used to having her own hair and being able to do whatever to it. It's also hard to stay confident when she wants to embrace her baldness. People stare at her when she's out.
She came to us and asked if she could wear a wig with Alopecia.
It is no problem to wear a lace wig if you have Alopecia. We want you to see another option if you have Alopecia or some balding experience you've gone through. You can have a natural-looking appearance.
The most important factors for Alopecia are comfort wear and a realistic looking. When starting a wig buy, you need to consider the following details.
Five Points To Consider When Buying Lace Front Wig For Alopecia
Whether It Is 100% Human Hair?
We only recommend wearing 100% human hair wigs for ladies with Alopecia Areata. Synthetic fibers or blended hair might cause allergies or other problems.
Whether It Is Scalp Knots Or Invisible Knots?
Scalp knots and invisible knots are smaller. That makes the wig look more realistic than the usual wig technique.
Normal Knots: Generally 3-4 strands on each lace hole. The black spots are attractive.
Invisible Knots: Generally 2-3 strands on each lace hole. The black spots are much smaller, and the wig looks realistic after bleaching the knots.
Scalp Knots: Even more invisible since there are only 1-2 strands on each hole. It looks like the hair is growing out of the scalp.
Whether Enough Lace Space?
The lace area allows you to style the wig as you like. You can get a middle, left, or right part without adjusting your wig unit.
Whether A Pre-plucked Hairline?
Having a pre-plucked hairline is a significant point in achieving a natural looking. Check the photo shootings and see if they have plucked the hairline. You will save lots of work and install the wig without effort. It's important if you don't want to spend hours dealing with the hairline or have a dull look after wearing a wig.
Whether It Is HD Lace?
HD lace is very soft, making it very comfortable to wear. Also, HD lace is super thin, and it melts right into the skin, making the wig look as natural as possible.
Be sure to read the descriptions and confirm all these details with the seller before you order.
If this is your first time trying a lace wig, our recommendations are lace front wigs or full lace wigs.

Wearing a wig cap would help you protect your scalp and skin. There're clips and combs inside the wig. It has the potential to damage your skin and create friction.

Keep your skin clean, especially when you install the wig with glue. The makeup might interfere with the products you will use.

Put the wig on and walk around your room for a while before cutting the lace off. Doing this gives you a better feel if the wig is too tight for your head.
