Having Alopecia may make you feel you like you have to wear wigs for the rest of your life. However wearing them too frequently and or incorrectly for that matter can reverse your condition or keep your condition from improving. This can happen because wigs can be to abrasive to your scalp especially if your not wearing your wig cap. I seen wigs literally rub off and pull my clients edges and hair off, form both glue and glueless wigs. 


As you can see the inside of this lace frontal has alot of construction, from  clips to relatively coarse materials, yet something "delicate" as lace can rub off your edges and hair. Especially because if you have weak follicles they are fragile which means your hair can easily be broken off.
