Actress and singer Countess Vaughn recently appeared on the television show “The Doctors” and revealed that she developed a sacal infection from wearing lace front wigs. The “227,” “Moesha” and “The Parkers” star revealed,
“In 2004, my hairstylist introduced to lace-front wigs and I fell in love with them, immediately. You have a full-hair line; I was wearing them 24/7. Five years later the drama came in. The red flag was the oozing from my ears, forehead, the whole nape around my head. The puss had a horrible smell and it was painful. I let it go by for six months. What I did not realize, I had a bad reaction to the glue I used to apply the wig. My hair started to fall out.”
Vaughn stated that she suffered discoloration, peeling of the skin and hair loss as a result to her allergic reaction to glue used when applying lace front wigs.She also added,
“I went to the dermatologist but he did not let me know the long-term effects of the infection. I have skin discoloration and people assume I have 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.’”
Much respect to the sister and glad she’s doing better. Peep the interview as she details the unfortunate incident.
