The question has always been which are superior, human hair or artificial hair wigs. The simple answer is that absolutely nothing beats a human hair wig. It isn’t always that simple though. There are situations and circumstances that dictate what your choices are when it comes to buying wigs. Here are some of the pros and cons of human hair wigs and synthetic hair wigs.
Durability – Human hair wigs do tend to last longer than synthetic hair wigs when taken care of properly. The hair is obviously tougher because it is real, but the care needs to focus on the cap. The main reason a human hair wig wears out is because the hair starts to fall out where it is sewn in the cap, and there are lots of ways to curb this, but that is a post for another day.
Price- Synthetic hair wigs are always less expensive. This can be very helpful if money is an issue.
Hair Color – You’ll be able dye (using hair color) your human hair wig just like you do your own hair. There are currently no synthetic wigs on the market today that you can use hair color on.
Availability- synthetic hair is more readily available than human hair, therefore there are always more choices for synthetic wigs when trying to find a style.
Natural looking – a human hair wig, always looks more natural than a synthetic hair wig, that is just the way it is. Advancements are happening fast in wig making but it would take a significantly superior invention for synthetic hair wigs to ever compare to human hair wigs as far as a all-natural look goes.
Styling – This one is a toss up. You are able to use hot styling tools, like curling irons & blow dryers, on human hair wigs, although not on synthetic types! However, synthetic hair wigs give you the ability to just pull them out of the box, run your fingers through them, and go without any time styling at all.
Feel – Human hair wigs have a nicer texture to touch. They have a much more purely natural feel when you operate your fingers by way of them – all things considered, these are made from pure hair!
Breathability – Wearing a human hair wig is usually hotter, as the cap is hand sewn and fits more snug. The average synthetic hair wig is sewn into a wefted cap that breaths a little better.
Heat and Frizz – when you’ve got a human hair wig, you don’t need be worried about standing in the vicinity of warmth resources like scorching, open ovens and barbecues and fireplaces. When around these things wearing synthetic wigs it WILL cause them to frizz an lose style.
Maintain its fashion – An advantage of a synthetic hair wig is that it usually holds its style, even right after being cleaned. You need to style your own private human hair wig just after it has been cleaned.
