When did Michael Jackson start wearing a wig? Was it after the 1984 Pepsi hair burn? Is Michael Jackson wearing a wig in the Bad album photo?

No one can give you a correct answer. Except Karen Faye ;)
But as I remember she said since 1994.

WTH?? Can you imagine a thread like this about Janet? Very disrespectful. The things that are allowed about Michael. And then we wonder where haters get their info/ammo from. SMH!!

I actually don't think there anything wrong with this question… Not disrespectful at all IMO.

He was burnt very bad during the Pepsi commercial - I think his scalp was badly injuried and he started wearing wigs after that.

It's not disrespectful. We know he wore wigs. A user was curious when it started.

Hair pieces from 84 onwards, wigs from 95. You can tell by the change in his hairline

MJ did not wear wigs, nor hair pieces, after the Pepsi accident in 1984, thanks to Dr. Steven Hoefflin.

That doctor performed revolutionary laser surgery on his scalp after the accident with immediate positive results.

Here is what the doctor revealed back then:

“…We were able to cover the area using his own hair, he did not need any implants or transplants … The operation was very important to him, to have a full head of hair without the necessity of wigs or other hair coverings…” (Dr. Steven Hoefflin, April 1984)

Also, on the ‘BAD’ album cover MJ did not wear any wigs/hair pieces, either.

His use of wigs started from mid 90’s onwards, when you can easily spot the differences of his hair’s length from one music video to another which were released between very short periods.

From 00’s onwards, he began to wear wigs more extensively when they became a permanent accessory of his look.

Man it's a film.
Not all the scenes are filmed the same day. I'm sure the part used for the music video is filmed after month after the first part.
Even Brad said when when they started filming (the first part) the song wasn't complete.
Watch the scenes from the rehearsals, his hair is long.

I wondered why he wore wigs. Was it because it didn't grown anymore after the burning of his head? I heard many black people (mainly women) wear wigs, it's perhaps cultural?

Michael used makeup and lipstick also, where's the problem ? it's a strange behaviour for you ?

Without considering the Pepsi accident, passing from an afro hairstyle from the Young Era to Jheri Curl hairstyle and then straightened hair in the Dangerous Era, I think that the hair becomes very damaged and he decided to wear wigs

Dude I know all of that & beyond! That wasnt to the response. It was a fact! I'm aware that the song wasnt finish at the end of production & thats why its different from the album.
