Many people have trouble deciding whether a synthetic wig will match the quality of a human hair wig. While synthetic wigs are relatively inexpensive, they do not measure up to the natural look and feel a human hair wig may provide you with. There are not many disadvantages regarding human hair wigs due to their high quality, you just have to expend more on one and take care of it like it’s your own hair i.e. wash it after every use.
The following are the advantages of using a human hair wig in contrast to synthetic wigs:
Human hair wigs are stronger and more durable
Synthetic wigs do not possess the same durability and strength as human hair wigs, making them last for a shorter period of time compared to human hair. Additionally, human hair is heavier and more voluminous, thus giving a more natural look and feel.
A human hair wig can look like real hair and you have more styling options with human hair than synthetic wigs
Apart from the fact that human hair feels heavier than synthetic hair, it looks more real and natural because it is made of real human hair. Additionally, human hair is more durable therefore you can make it go through the same styling options as you would with your real hair such as ironing, heating, blow during, curling etc., without making it look unnatural or fake.
Human hair wigs last longer than synthetic wigs
It is better to invest on a human hair wig than replacing your synthetic wig every time it wears off. Aside from being more real and natural, it will save you from burning holes through your wallet repeatedly. Human hair wigs last just as long as real hair, this can be about a few years on an average, in contrast to synthetic wigs that last for only 4 months maximum, depending on the daily styling, treatment, usage and length of hair.
Human hair wigs are heat resistant
One aspect of synthetic hair which most people worry about is the melting of the fibers of the hair due to heat treatment and styling. Human hair wigs are made of real hair and can withstand heat and friction the same as real hair does, therefore, you will have more styling options such as heat curling, ironing and blow drying without causing serious damage to the hair.
Most of the human hair wigs that are in the market these days are from Asian countries, usually from China. Asian countries like India and Pakistan provide better quality hair compared to other countries of Asia and like most Asian women’s hair, human hair wigs from Asian countries are often dark in color and are made to produce dark, straight wigs. In order to change the color of the hair, the hair has to go through several heating processes and dying, curling and bleaching, to match the style of what a buyer may require. However, such hairs often go through a lot of damage and often do not last longer than a few months. Therefore, for Asian hair, always choose darker colors or the original hair colors.
The best quality human air wigs are originated from European countries, particularly the Eastern European ones such as Russia and Poland. These wigs are more expensive compared to Asian hair due to the quality and longevity.
