Human Hair Wigs vs. Synthetic Wigs- What fits your lifestyle?

Human Hair Wigs vs. Synthetic Wigs- What fits your lifestyle?

The time has come again for you to change your hairstyle. You’re not down for braids or twists this time. A wig sounds like the right choice because you would like for your hair to be up and out of the way. The first question that comes to mind, other than the actual style of the wig, is whether you want to go with a synthetic or human hair unit. They both have their pros and cons, but you must decide which unit will benefit you the most with the lifestyle that you lead. Let’s go over the basics so that you make the right choice.


Human Hair Wigs

When it comes to quality, human hair units take the cake. They look and feel natural and can be matched to your own hair texture. They can last a very long time with the proper upkeep and care. They are also able to be colored, treated and styled, similarly to how one would do their own hair. However, they are high maintenance and more expensive. Not to mention the fact that human hair units are fragile and can be damaged if styled improperly.


Synthetic Wigs

I know the first thought that comes to mind when picturing a synthetic unit is a bright, plastic one from your local costume store. However, after years of research and development, synthetic units have reached a point where you can hardly tell the difference between them and human hair units. Fibers used are comparable to human hair in texture and look, especially the premium synthetic units. Another advantage of synthetic wigs is their easy care and low maintenance. After a simple wash day, the wig will return to its original styling with little to issues. They hold their style no matter the weather and generally come pre-styled and ready to wear right out of the box, with a few minor adjustments. They typically are more affordable as well.
