If your beauty and hair care regimen has fallen by the wayside during this crisis, it may surprise you to learn that you are not alone. In the early phases of the pandemic, women everywhere were left to invoke innovation and do-it-yourself magic. Eventually, professional career attire gave way to sweats and t-shirts, while fabulous hair became hostage to at-home color jobs and effortless ponytails or updos.
Stay-at-home orders led to the shutdown of beauty supply chains and salons. Many women took to embracing the opportunity to give their hair and scalp a break from the rigors of a visit to the salon, turning to YouTube and other digital platforms for guidance. Others jumped on the bandwagon of women embracing their natural locks.
Fast-forward to a few months later, and the novelty of trying to maintain your hair during the pandemic has probably lost its appeal. You may even find yourself longing for the days in which your hair felt and looked good. There is no need to feel any shame. It’s not a shallow flaw to long for a sense of normalcy, as it pertains to your general appearance and (more specifically) the joy of having great hair. We all have our standards. Additionally, for many women, looking and feeling good are vital coping mechanisms. For some of us, that inner feeling of looking and feeling good starts with our crown and glory—great hair. Besides the fact it seems we are Zoom almost everyday showing our mane.
Hair Maintenance and COVID-19
The old saying goes, “when you look good, you feel good.” Think about the feeling you have when walking out of the salon with a fabulous new look. Your hair feels soft. Your scalp is tingling from its recent massage leading up to styling, and your entire being is vibrating with possibilities. Your chin is lifted, your shoulders are back, your posture is straight, and your aura exudes confidence.
Achieving and maintaining great hair during Covid may not seem like a priority in the scheme of things, but for many women, having great hair is like breathing. It gives them a sense of pride.
Alas, all is not lost thanks in part to wigs and hair extensions. Sure, being locked down and socially distancing all of these months may have led your roots to give way to tell-tale gray patches and strands, but the good news is you still have multiple options to help you get your look back on track.
Benefits of Wearing Wigs and Hair Extensions during the Pandemic
Enter human hair, lace-front wigs and extensions! Women who thought they would never wear a wig or hair extensions are now taking advantage of these glorious accessories in the face of the pandemic and the era of Zoom. Human hair wigs and hair extensions are celebrated for enabling women to rock their hair without any hassle. Short, long, curly, wavy, or straight, wigs and hair extensions come in a variety of textures and lengths and offer a multitude of advantages for women who may feel that their greatest options for amazing hair are now behind them.
Uplift Your Confidence
Wigs and hair extensions can raise your confidence. There is nothing like reveling in the sensation and feel of a new lace-front wig or bundle of clip-in hair extensions. Fresh out of their package, the options for these pieces are endless. No matter the direction you choose to go, these pieces will provide you with a viable escape from the suffering from DIY hair care and styling practices.
Let’s face it: wigs are convenient no matter the season. A good lace-front wig will spare you the agony and time of having to spruce up your natural hair. Lace-front wigs not only provide natural length, volume, and texture, but they also create the illusion of a natural hairline. If you are concerned about keeping up natural appearances, a lace-front wig will deliver exceptional results. You’ll look amazing in your next Zoom meeting. Remember: they can’t see your sweatpants, but they can see your hair!
Human hair lace front wigs and hair extensions have a price range that makes them affordable for women seeking to temporarily embark on this journey. You will be pleased to find that you don’t have to break the bank to change your appearance, and you may find that it is surprisingly less expensive in some instances than weekly/monthly trips to your favorite salon.
Keeping Up Appearances Virtually and In-Person
If you are among the population of women who spend more than 70% of your time on webcam or even venturing out into the workplace, wigs and hair extensions will go a long way to support your desire to maintain your standards of appearance and professionalism. Being on camera can generate a bevy of insecurities and make us feel a bit more self-conscience than we already do in our everyday life. Lace-front wigs can go a long way to help you overcome those feelings of insecurity about your appearance and motivate you in ways you never thought possible.
An Opportunity for Trial and Error
Another benefit of wearing wigs and hair extensions right now is that you now have an opportunity for a bit of fun with trial and error. Social distancing and being confined to your home more days than not, allow you to test a few of those styles and colors you might have been curious to try, but never had the nerve to embark upon until now.
Comfortable and Durable
As you continue to cope with the pandemic, you do not have to worry too much about the lifespan or durability of human hair lace front wigs or hair extensions. With proper care, these pieces can last for a long time. The key is to ensure that you are consistent with your wig and extension care, as well as your storage practices.
Don’t Let COVID-19 Hurt Your Hair
In closing, there is no need to let the pandemic stifle your love of having great looking hair.
