No it is not because i am bald and do not have any because i have plenty. Wigs and half wigs are good protective styles. Instead of having to flat iron/curl my hair and damage it with heat to make it look presentable, i can just put on a wig and half wig and save my hair the damage. I could care less what people think honestly, i am not afraid to admit i wear false tresses. There is nothing wrong with it because i know i am protecting my real hair from damage while maintaining and growing my hair.
