Benefits of Synthetic Wigs
When it comes to purchasing a synthetic wig, many people's first or only experience is through a beauty supply store, either in-person or online. While the idea of getting a wig for $20-$40 may be tempting, it's important to consider the quality that comes with that price. Some vendors may sell synthetic wigs that look and feel cheap, due to the lower quality of the materials used. It's important to do your research before making a purchase, regardless of where you buy your wig. Not all beauty supply stores offer consistent quality, so be sure to check what type of fiber is used in the wig you're considering.
High-quality synthetic wigs are often made with Japanese Fibers and will look and feel like human hair.
It is important to note that even though some synthetic wigs are heat resistant, using styling tools that are too hot can still cause heat damage. To ensure the longevity of the wig, it is advisable to avoid using heat on synthetic wigs, even if they are heat resistant.
Although very durable, synthetic wigs have a shorter life span, depending on how you care for your wig. Synthetic wigs can last anywhere from 4 months to one year.
For individuals with temporary hair loss or those seeking a new appearance, a high-quality synthetic wig that looks realistic is a cost-effective option.
Human Hair Wigs
Human hair wigs, if well maintained, can last up to a year or more, but with poor maintenance and exessive heat, human wigs may not last up to one year or more.
Human hair wigs are generally more expensive than synthetic wigs due to the use of real hair. It's possible to dye these wigs. However, it is important to note that now all human hair wigs are high quality. Wigs made from poor quality, excessively processed hair may tangle and mat easily, especially after washing.
