Synthetic Wigs vs Human Hair Wigs
Human Hair Wigs
The key difference between synthetic hair and human hair is that human hair wigs offer the most natural look and feel because they're real human hair. The hair is soft and can be treated as your natural hair using the same treatments and hair wash products and have less maintenance compared to synthetic wigs.
Advantages of Human Hair Wigs
Styling versatility – Many human hair wigs can be styled, permed, brushed and coloured just like your own hair. If you wish to alter the colour of your wig you can freely do so just as you would with your own hair.
Longevity – With the correct care, human hair wigs can last up to a year or more even when worn daily. The lifespan is longer because the hair will not start to matt and can tolerate hair products and washing.
Natural look – human hair wigs will look and feel incredibly natural and are a perfect choice for those wanting to wear a wig that doesn't look like a wig.
Limitations of Human Hair Wigs
High maintenance – just like real hair, human hair wigs need to be washed and re-styled frequently if hair products are used on them daily. Follow a weekly hair wash regime to maintain your wig.
Cost – human hair wigs are typically more expensive as they are made from real hair but are worth the money considering the versatility.
Reacts to weather – just like natural hair, human hair wigs react to the weather. Yes, that means that the frizz can come out in wet weather too!
Synthetic Hair Wigs
The difference between a synthetic wig and human wig is that the synthetic wig is made up of synthetic hair or synthetic fibres. Synthetic wigs do not have as much versatility as a human wig and cannot be dyed or washed as harshly, extra care is required to maintain your synthetic hair wig.
