‘Women Who Wear Wigs, Human Hair Have Low Self-Esteem’ – Veteran Actress, Taiwo Ajai-Lycett


Actress Taiwo Ajai-Lycett has said women who wear wigs and human hair to enhance their beauty have low self-esteem.

The veteran actress and broadcaster revealed this in an interview with Vanguard at a function in Lagos.

The 81-year-old reiterated that God has blessed African women with the best kind of hair of all races and wondered aloud why African women would rather go for human hair of less endowed races.


“We have been blessed with the best kind of hair that we can transform into any kind of look 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,” she said.

The indefatigable actress and unapologetic feminist also emphasized the importance and role of women in society, asserting that women are the source of life and creation..
