About the Book

“Wigs can kill!”

In a society where wearing wigs is so prevalent, the author reveals the damages wigs can cause to the unawares. Surprisingly, even Christians are subject to the unfortunately misfortunes caused by wigs.

In this book, you will learn:

How wigs can be cursed
What the Bible says about cursed objects
Why Christians should stay away from wigs

  In her book, “Are Christians Wearing Wigs? Wigs Can Kill!” Nicole Benoit-Roy shares her story of the epiphany she had one day while braiding her hair with hair extensions, which eventually sent her on a search for answers.


For a very long time during my teenage years I wanted to be an actress. So, during filming one time I wore a wig that just would not stay on my head. I have no idea why but that experience of constantly having to adjust it during the shoot (was disappointing enough that it) is engraved in my mind.

During those years, I used to transition often from natural to permed hair. However, a few months after I became a Christian in 1997 I decided to wear my natural hair indefinitely.

By this time, I was already an adult, married with child. I began working for the New York City public schools as a substitute teacher. I did not always know when I’d be going to work.

One winter evening of the same year, I had this bright idea to braid my hair with extensions that way I’ll have one less thing to worry about when I was summoned for work in the morning.

Wigs can kill



Something strange happened to me that evening while one of my sister-in-laws was braiding my hair. Halfway during the process I got up. I actually felt as though I was transported to the nearby mirror by an unseen hand.

I looked at myself and saw the side of my head with natural hair and the other side with hair extensions and I started screaming frantically saying, “Take if off, take it off. This is not me.”

The hair extensions seemed shinier than usual. What was happening to me? The extensions did not seem appealing to me as they used to. That was really strange. Since that time I never felt the urge to wear them again. In fact, I’ve developed a strong distaste toward them.

But Why? I lived on those things!…

D’Blessing (2014) writes:

God has made us wonderfully and beautifully (Psalm 139:14) and anything that God has made in us that we do not like or dislike is often owed to vain desires, vain glory, seeking to be like others or wanting to be what He himself has not called us to be. (para. 6)

During my research I found a video (Ravindranath, 2012), which explains the process in which one’s beauty is sacrificed (known as tonsorial) to idols in exchange for favors.

The obvious conclusion is by wearing the wigs, the wearer will inherit whatever the curse (e.g., illness) that that person had before giving his/her hair to the gods. That is scary, especially with illnesses so prevalent in the churches.

TGFJ Writer (2015) states, “When a hair is sacrificed to idols and someone wears it, they put themselves in bondage” (para. 4).

While writing this manuscript, I received a phone call from a church sister who was returning my call from two days ago. The Lord had impressed me to tell her this story I heard seven years ago when I lived in Pennsylvania.

The story is about a devout church woman who loved God so much that on many occasions the enemy tried to attack her but could not find a leeway. However, as soon as she put on a wig satan said, “Aha! I got her.”

D’Blessing (2014) writes:

When a person brings something into their home that is cursed (whether knowingly or out of ignorance), it gives the enemy a legal right into that home or to that person.

Deuteronomy 7:26 says,

‘Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.’

The central point is that a believer should rid themselves of any cursed object! Case in point Acts 19:19: the people of Ephesus destroyed the cursed things in their life. (para. 7)

My church sister responded to the message with glee. She couldn’t stop thanking me. We prayed together over the phone and then she shared with me her story of how God had warned her from a very young age to stay away from hair extensions.

She proceeded to say that because of her disobedience she felt that God had caused her hair to stop growing altogether. She then verbalized her concern about how to style her gray hair to which I offered some advice and reminded her of her natural beauty which is God-given.

    Wow, wow, wow! I scarcely know how to begin. So let me just say that this is very interesting, enlightening, thought provoking, confirming , etc… confirming because, I was never a person to like wigs or any of the other hair extensions. Then while shopping with a friend(who wears them regularly) I decided to try them on and eventually purchased one, then I began getting my hair crochet, which I loved. But, one day it occurred to me(now believing Holy Spirit) that We use all this hair coming from various places around the world and we don’t know who it may have belonged to. I mean, I actually thought about the spirits attached to the hair. And yet, sadly, while the thought crossed my mind more than once, I just kinda said to myself, maybe I’m being (for lack of a better word)ridiculous. Thanks for being bold enough to write this. I’m going to share.

      Do the wigs, fake hair, and extensions have anything to do with your salvation or with your eternal life?

      • Kc


        What is important is your relationship with God, in your daily life do you reflect God character in how you are dealing with others? the question is God won’t ask you what did you wear but He will ask what did you do when I was in prison? did you visit me?

          Hi Kc, thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
          In regard to relationship with God, our lifestyle will reflect the depth of our relationship with Him. The Word of God says we are in the world but not of the world (John 17:16). Therefore, we can’t be worldly and heavenly at the same time. Choose this day whom you will serve (Joshua 24:15). When I did not know the Word, God winked at my ignorance but when I know the Word I should do better. However, this remains everyone’s choice to make.

      • nicoleroy52


        Absolutely! Everything we do can impact our salvation, contrary to what most people think. This is why if we call ourselves Christians we shouldn’t live our life based on what we think. Because our righteousness is filthiness (Isaiah 64:6). Plus, God gave us a manual (the Bible), so that we don’t have to take chances with our life. I thank God that He is my maker and I’m not a product of evolution.
        If we choose to be ignorant and put ourselves in bondage by wearing things that have been offered to idols and therefore an abomination to The Lord, then we’ll be of no use to Him as far as fulfilling the great commission work, which we all are called to do. The Word of God commands us to work out our salvation (Philippians 2:12). We can’t and shouldn’t be careless about our salvation. Sadly, many people believe that they are automatically saved because Jesus died for our sins. They need to search the Word more fervently.

    Life is too short, and there are more important things than the hairstyle on your head. That’s superficial. We, especially as Black folks, need to concentrate on what’s inside of our heads and hearts. Just be careful that you don’t let your outward appearance become your God. Did you spend more money on your hair than what you gave to God or even to the poor? Is your hair, make-up, clothes becoming more important than God or helping others? If not. Then don’t worry. Enjoy what time on earth that you have, and if you have any questions.. think about how most folks on their deathbeds wished they hadn’t wasted time with all of the small stuff.

      Thanks for your comment, Parris. I believe everything we do as Christians can impact our walk with The Lord.

    I used to wear wigs and extensions until my hair started to come out.till this day it has not grown back.I don’t see nothing wrong with wigs, it is better than going bald-headed in public.I believe they were made for this purpose to help those who want to look normal and be able to go outside.

      Hi Rosemary, thanks so much for commenting. I would surrender the growth of my hair to The Lord. After all, He gave me my hair in the first place. Why should I turn to anything or anyone else? I suppose faith plays a very important part in this. We can move mountains if we believe.
      The follow up to this blog is coming soon in an eBook I’m writing on this subject. In it I share a story of my own hair growth. Thanks again. I understand your point of view though.

    • nicoleroy52


      Lol. Christ used His power to love. He is our role model. Thanks for your comment.

    I wear wigs because my hair – not to be offensive- looks like Kunta Kinte’s grandchild. I live in the West, which makes wearing headcoverings full time diffcult ( women typically go around bare-headed in my country and certain places sometimes restrict wearing headcoverings).I only have 2 years and 8 months of hairgrowth , which doesn’t give me very much to work with. I like to play around with my natural hair, but I get up so early in the morning that I often do not have much time to style my hair ( sounds redundant but lets be truthful). I ,however, stay away from human hair wigs though.

    “I would suggest to not wear fake hair and repent for it ..as I have had to do twice . Because the devil really wants gods women and men . I had bought a very nice and beautiful human hair wig ..from Texas I’m from Detroit! It was actually on sale! So I said “ DEAL” ! ..after a month with this wig” I slept in it …never have did that before!” I really thought that was weird ..then after that I became scared of the wig ..I literally was more in love with the wig than myself ..it seemed as if I forgot who I was , and was doing crazy things no lie Yall! And was ultimately terrified..I wasn’t acting like myself I was becoming mean and vain … thinking my looks with this wig! Will get me far ..then one day I was just sitting on my floor in my apartment..and the wig literally felt like . “It was coming alive” , and I screamed.!!!!! “ and three it on the floor and was looking at it in disgust..soon after that threw it in the trash! 🙏🏻 Then …a month later again ..I was in a rush for some hair products..got carried away and went straghit to the wigs 🤦🏻‍♀️ ..soon after that I bought another wig! And thought well it’s not human hair it won’t come alive ..then my mother commented and said to me ..ohh you think you cardi b …( in a nice voice ) but I soon researched…later on do witches wear wigs …and google said yes! That was enough me then I came across this article..I had to repent cause Jesus! Warning was enough ..let alone to keep trynna see if it is true . I feel terrible and prayed twice! * DON’T WEAR THEM’!!!!! #testimony

    I totally agree with what you said sis Nicole. The first time I sew a weapon, I couldnt sleep at night. Was so uncomfortable and my body was itching esp areas that the hair touch. Didnt last on my hair though and I stayed away from it after the braids I did next cut my hair soo bad my friends in school literally mocked me.
