Full lace wigs aren't the culprit, it's people applying glue & tape to their hair rather than in front of their hairline and then not being patient when taking the wig off. I've worn full lace wigs for nearly 4 years now. And only in the first year did I use glue or tape. I never lost any hair or thinned my hairline because I applied in front of my hair and I was VERY patient when taking down the wig.
The only time I got thinning was from when I used to wear braids and the braiders (much like what happened to OP) were hungry to snatch up the edges and braid them.
i see what you're saying about the glue on the lacefronts, MB.
and like some here, and the OP, I have been edge-raped by the braiders. I've literally had them rip a plug of hair off my sides one day..
You know when you hold the braid against your temple while they're plaiting? one of them told me not to do so. She was chattering away - and for some reason she did an exaggerated yanking gesture while talking (in her language). her hand went up in the air and so did the whole braid. This included all of that sectioned off hair in the braid extension.
She sat there looking dumbfounded with that braid plug in her hand, quickly recovered while holding the plug saying: "Oh don't worry it grow back"...
I was mildly shocked, knowing full well you can't glue that back on to the scalp. Damage was done, and yes, after several braid/twist sessions, more hair loss, horror stories, and lots of money? I knew my "braiding/twisting" days were over.
