Women’s Wigs: Human Hair or Synthetic. Which is Better?

medical quality womens wigs alopecia trichotillomania chemotherapy fort lauderdale floridaWhen it comes to women’s wigs in Fort Lauderdale, there are multiple choices to consider. The most prominent decision you will have to make is whether to purchase a 100% natural human hair wig or to opt for a woman’s wig made from synthetic fibers rather than human hair.

When you need or want to get a wig, there are many choices. Style and color, of course, are big choices, but you also need to choose which type of wig you would like to get as well as the actual wig construction. There are two basic choices: a synthetic wig or a human hair wig. Which one is best for you?

Synthetic Women’s Wigs: A Close-Up Look

In years past synthetic wigs could look pretty rough, but nowadays they are actually pretty good, thanks to technological advances. Synthetic has many positives. First of all, it does not require much styling. The style is permanently set into the wig – as well as the color – and it will bounce back into shape easily. There are even “heat-friendly” synthetic wigs that may allow you to style them, but it just does not work well all of the time. And you have to be careful, since styling irons can actually melt the hair fibers of a synthetic wig.

Another downside to synthetic wigs is that they do not last that long. Of course, they are also not that expensive either.  They may last up to six months before they look too worn and obvious for public wear. But then again, they are quite affordable when compared to human hair!

Should I Buy a Human Hair Wig?

Many women who come to us in Fort Lauderdale choose a beautiful 100% human hair wig because it looks more natural, even though they are also slightly more expensive. It makes sense, because someone would definitely want to get compensated for giving up their hair for a wig! Some human hair wigs are higher quality than others. Some have been carefully produced ensuring that the hair follicles are all going in the same direction, and others have been thoroughly processed to get the exact uniform color on each strand of hair. Those options are definitely the most expensive.

Natural human hair wigs do last longer, sometimes for many years, but they also require care. Human hair wigs need to be conditioned and moisturized on a regular basis, just like any human hair. Many people choose to have their human hair wigs styled by a professional in preparation for wear, because they do not come out of the box ready to wear like synthetic.

Choosing Human Hair or Synthetic Wigs

Now you know the basic ups and downs of both synthetic and human hair wigs. Whichever one you choose is up to you! If you’re looking for value and a solid style, synthetic would be great for you. If you prefer a flexible look and long-lasting style, go with human hair.
