Women Who Wear Wigs Have Low Self Esteem


In a recent interview with Vanguard at a function in Lagos, renowned Nollywood actress Taiwo Ajai-Lycett expressed her views on the use of wigs among African women.

The veteran actress suggested that wearing wigs to enhance beauty is a manifestation of low self-esteem.

Ajai-Lycett, known for her impactful roles in the film industry, emphasized that African women are naturally blessed with beautiful hair, which can be styled in various ways.

She urged women to embrace their natural hair, stating, “Our Africanness is what stands us out among all the races of the world.”

The actress went further to assert that the desire to adopt Western beauty standards, such as using wigs and human hair, is indicative of low self-esteem. According to her, self-love and appreciation of one’s God-given beauty should be prioritized.

Ajai-Lycett concluded by emphasizing the importance of kindness towards women for a successful and fulfilling life.

She urged individuals to foster happiness in the lives of the women around them, including mothers, wives, and sisters.

She said, “We have been blessed with the best kind of hair that we can transform into any kind of looks we desire. We have to love ourselves as Africans and appreciate our God-given beauty. Our Africanness is what stands us out among all the races of the world.”

“The African woman is beautiful in all ramifications. I believe women who go for wigs and human hair have low self-esteem. Their desire to look western and foreign is a sign of low self-esteem.

“If you want your life to be in order and successful, be kind to the women in your life. It is when the women in your life are happy that you can truly be happy. By women, I mean your mother, your wife, your sister or as the case may be.”
