On a recent episode of The Doctors, actress Countess Vaughn shared her lace front wig horror story. As an actress, Vaughn stated that she was used to changing up her styles, and when her stylist introduced her to lace fronts in 2004, she thought she found something that would allow her to look natural.
But the wigs weren’t all that they cracked up to be. After wearing them 24/7, five years later, Vaughn noticed puss around her hairline and ear areas. But it took her six months to seek treatment. Finally, she was told that she was having a reaction to the glue used for with wigs. Eventually Vaughn’s hair started to fall out.
Check out the video clip below:
Vaughn says she’s still dealing with skin discoloration and people assume she suffers from vitiligo.
“I use makeup to cover up, especially the skin under my eyes. Skin came off of my ears. I draw in my hairline with an eye pencil. I had to go through this to teach my little one, ‘you have to love yourself before anyone else will'”.
