I know for African American women, they kind of transition from having relaxed hair into wearing sew-ins. Where they braid the hair where have tracks that they would sew on. Now we're having more wigs, which is much convenient to wear.
Pro 1: They are versatile
The first positive of wearing wigs is that it's so versatile. There are so many types of wigs on the hair market right now. If you prefer short hair, you can buy short bob wig, like pixie cut wigs.

The lace wig allows you to try a new style. If you are thinking of trying a new hairstyle, you can start with wigs to see how it looks instead of cutting your actual hair. If you don't like it, you can rip it off and go on about your life.
Pro 3: Protective style
This pro is especially for African American women. It's called a protective style. Often we are worried about the health of our hair and how we're protecting it. But when you are about to have twist-ups, straightening, detangling our hair every day, that can break off our hair. When put on the lace wig, it can keep for some days. So that's why a lot of African American women like to wear protective styles.
Pro 4: Manipulate the hair without damage to yours
Another great thing about wearing wigs is that we can manipulate this hair as much as we want. We can curl or straighten the human hair wig as much as we want. Maybe you will have so much fun switching up the hairstyles every day.

It's much convenient to wear a human hair lace wig compare with the sew-in. You can put it on, and then at the end of the night, you can take it off, letting your scalp breathe.

Of course, of anything great, there is a drawback of sorts. So we are moving into the cons of wearing wigs.
Con 1: It takes a lot of work to make it look natural
When it comes to customizing the wig, it's not easy to make it look natural. We need to plucking the hairline to create a most natural hairline, blenching knots on the lace, and creating the baby hair. It's honestly a process. That's why so many people go to the hairstylist to find who can install the wig for them and make it look good.
Con 2: May damage edges
You will have to apply gel or glue to have it stick onto your hair if you want it to be more secure. Of course, you could use the combs in the wig, or you can use an elastic band. But honestly, most people like to use glue. However, if you glue the wig down and do not correctly move it, it will cause damage to your edges.
