Things to think about before purchasing a wig
Whether you buy a wig for changing up a look or for covering hair loss or alopecia, there are a few things that you definitely need to know before purchasing a wig.
Hair material of the wig
Human hair wigs offer limitless styling possibilities just like your own hair. You can color it, perm it, straighten it to make it more natural and more fitful for your lifestyle and need. Without the natural oil from your scalp, it requires more maintenance, styling and upkeep. Thus, it requires you have enough time to care for it. Human hair wigs can last more than a year with proper maintenance.
High quality synthetic wigs resemble human hair wigs a lot. You cannot even tell it is synthetic. A synthetic hair wig is really a ‘shake and go' type and requires less styling than a human hair wig. However, you need to keep it away from heat sources since it will damage the synthetic fiber permanently. Heat sources here includes flat iron, curling iron, hair dryer or any other heat styling tools. Synthetic wigs can last around 6 months with proper care.
Heat resistant synthetic fiber
Some synthetic wigs are made of heat friendly synthetic fiber and they can be applied with heat. You just need to keep the heat below 220F. Thus you can straighten or curl it to change a style. Synthetic wigs are much cheaper than human hair wigs and it usually can last around 6 months with proper care.
