Currently, some women rather wear artificial hair transplant caps than going to a hair dressing saloon and plaiting conventionally.
We realize a rise the number of women in general and young women in particular displaying short, long, wavy or simply braided wigs in the streets.
The phenomenon is not new but in mid-2020 with impulsion from the social media, there has been an explosion in the practice. The fear of the wig falling does not scare the females. With or with closure, women are gradually following the fashion.
They advance many reasons like time and money consumption, the fact that normal hair transplants keep dirt like Philippe Belinga of advertisement 1 says «wigs are far better than conventional plaiting.
When you plait, you have to keep the hair for a certain period of time and the hair starts scratching especially on sunny days meanwhile when it’s a wig you can remove it at any moment».
Others underline physical reasons «I don’t put on hair transplant because it olden me and often cuts off my hair».
Thought many dive into the practice of wearing artificial hair transplant caps, some women stay faithful to conventional plaiting» I see it beautiful when a woman goes to a hair dressing saloon and takes her time become prettier it shows that she takes care of herself instead of just throwing any bird nest on the hair» advances Kang Josephine in level 2 history at the University of Yaounde I.
No matter what women choose to wear the objective remains the same, becoming more beautiful. The choice is theirs to make.
