One of the biggest considerations in choosing a wig is whether you want to go natural or synthetic. With technological advances, synthetic hair has come a long way in recent years and the synthetic fibers used in making wigs today look far more realistic than in previous generations, but they can still look far from natural. The most appealing aspect to synthetic hair is it can often be worn right out of the box with little or no styling. This is great for dress up parties or just wanting the mix it up a little, but when it comes to hair loss, human hair wigs are by far the superior choice, for the reasons outlined below.
While synthetic hair may offer ease of use, it lacks a certain versatility that only comes with human hair wigs. It cannot be styled to look many different ways like a human hair wig and even rare heat friendly synthetic hair wigs can be difficult to style as synthetic fibre is more resistant to change. Synthetic hair wigs are also less durable than human hair wigs. With proper care you can expect synthetic hair wigs and hairpieces to only last about 4-6 months and heat friendly synthetic hair only 2- 3 months.
Human Hair Wigs will provide the most natural look and feel
Human hair wigs are remarkably soft with a shine and movement that is not easily duplicated in synthetic hair. Human hair wigs can be cut and styled to suit your personal tastes. And while it can be a more expensive option, with the proper care, it is also more durable, meaning it is an investment that will restore you hair, and your confidence!
Advantages of Human Hair Wigs:
- More realistic appearance than a synthetic wig
- Same styling and maintenance as your natural hair
- Can be custom-coloured to desired colour
- Greater durability than a synthetic wig
- Can endure heat from styling tools
