Do you want to know the history of wigs in Africa? Come with me to have a talk.

The ancient Egyptians in Africa began to use wigs more than 4000 years ago. They were also the first people in the world to use wigs and spread them to Europe.

Wigs also appear in many forms of performing art. Wigs are one of the court customers of barristers and judges in Britain and most Commonwealth countries.

Modern wigs have been more and more used in life to match clothing or make up for hair shortage like 40 inch body wave wig.

The ancient Egyptians began to popularize wigs in the early dynasties, and from the third to the sixth dynasties, it was common for men and women to wear wigs made of wool mixed with human hair.

The length and style of wigs are differed from social status and times. Since the Middle Kingdom, regardless of wealth, status and gender, people have shaved their hair and beard, put on wigs and fake mustaches, and only allow their hair to grow when they are in mourning, otherwise, they will be ridiculed.

For this phenomenon, Herodotus, the ancient Greek historian, thought that the ancient Egyptians thought that the head would be hard if they were exposed to the sun, but this had no scientific basis and could not explain the habit of wearing wigs.

Later, some people thought that the ancient Egyptians loved to be clean, and their hair and beard were easy to hide dirt. So they shaved their hair and beard and put on lace wig human hair to prevent their head from being sunburned. However, some people questioned that wearing a wig instead of real hair was not as clean as leaving hair.

The untouchables cover their heads with plain faces. The Egyptians in the New Kingdom preferred to embellish the tail of the wig with long tassels, among which the short transparent wig or headband half wig was popular in the American era.

Some wigs are also padded with jujube and coconut fiber to make them fuller. In addition to using wigs while living, ancient Egyptians also used wigs for burial. They believed that they need to wear wigs when they go to another world. Archaeologists also found lace wigs for burial in many ancient tombs.
