For many, going grey comes as a shock. It happens whether you want it or not. While those first few silver strands may pop up quickly, it can take years to go fully grey, leaving a distinct salt and pepper look behind. Dyeing this is expensive, time-consuming and potentially damaging. But choosing a wig to help through transition times can be a simple, cost-effective solution to transition to grey.
For people with dark hair, in particular, going grey may be a big change. Getting used to yourself with lighter hair means looking in the mirror feels completely different. Wigs can help wearers make marginal transitions towards this new look.
Wigs can preserve their darker shade if desired. They can be a few shades lighter to get used to it. Wigs can even be shimmering silvers, a classy look for mature hair that stays looking natural.
Styling wigs can also allow you to keep your signature curls without damaging dry, wiry grey hair. Some wigs can be styled like natural hair. They can be done by the wearer, or brought to professionals for straightening, curling or trims.
Choose from Many Options
Deciding what kind of wig you need depends on several variables. Some greying wearers may only want a wig for special occasions, like a family member’s wedding where there will be many photos. In this case, a synthetic wig may be a good option. These are budget-friendly and the right quality for less frequent use.
For those looking for any everyday sort of wig, considering real human hair may be worth it. These durable wigs come in a little higher on the price point, but they tend to last longer. Styling options are more varied with human hair wigs as well.
Perhaps a wig is more than you need? To cover grey patches or streaks, or to add volume back to brittle, greying hair, consider hairpieces or extensions. These can keep a natural look to your hair even as it undergoes the transition to grey.
