How to protect your hair under a wig?

Does wearing human hair wigs stop your natural hair from growth?

Definitely no. Just the opposite, wearing a high-quality human hair wig can not only boost your charm and confidence but also protect your natural hair from heat treatment and chemical treatment from prem, bleach, dye and iron-flatted, etc. Of course, if the hair underneath your wig isn’t properly protected or looked after, damages can be caused. But if you take good care of your natural hair underneath the wig, say nothing of wearing a wig can stop the natural hair growth or destroy the hairline.
