There is a never ending debate whether human hair wigs are better or synthetic hair wigs. Usually this debate comes to an end with a consensus which is – if you are looking for a hair solution for hair fall that looks as natural as possible then human hair wigs are the best choice. So, to clear the air, below I have listed some advantages and disadvantages of both human hair wigs and synthetic hair wigs:
Life and durability – If you care for human hair wigs correctly then they last much longer than synthetic hair wigs.
Styling Factor – Styling human hair wigs is a lot easier because you can use a blow dryer, hot iron etc. to give your wig the style you want. But you cannot do the same with synthetic hair wigs.
Sensitive to Heat – As mentioned above, you can apply a hot iron or even blow dry human hair wigs. But synthetic hair wigs are very sensitive to heat so you cannot stand too close to a source of heat like an oven or fireplace otherwise they will get ruined. This will not happen to human hair wigs.
Coloring – We highly recommend that you avoid coloring synthetic hair wigs as they will get damaged. However you can always color and apply dye to human hair wigs.
Natural looking style – If you are planning to wear your wig daily then you will want to occasionally change your hair style too. This is possible with human hair wigs and not so with synthetic hair wigs.
Natural to the touch – When you run your fingers through your wig you want them to feel natural to the touch and what can be more natural than a wig made with human hair wigs.
Breathable – When you wear a synthetic hair wig it can make you sweat from the scalp but this is not the case with human hair wigs as they allow for air to pass through easily.
Caring for your wig – It is very important that you take proper care of your wig. If you do not care for wigs then they will lose their shine and will not last very long, no matter how good their quality is. Having said this is to be noted that human hair wigs are far easier to care for and are not too much “high maintenance”.
Cost – Synthetic hair wigs cost far less as compared to human hair wigs so this is an advantage.
So these are the basic advantages and disadvantages when it comes to human hair wigs vs synthetic hair wigs and clearly from the above comparisons we can easily deduce that the best option is to buy human hair wigs for hair loss.
