Human Hair Wigs vs. Synthetic Hair Wigs


100 percent human hair wigs are made from real human hair which has never been colored. The hair is carefully selected and sorted before it is used to produce the wigs. Human hair wigs offer a very natural look; the hair doesn’t tangle and the care is simple. For a natural look, nothing beats a human hair wig. But if you’re worried about the price, a synthetic wig might be the right choice for you.

There are so many different reasons for people to wear wigs— to make a fashion statement, as a part of a costume and to replace hair that they have lost, just to name a few. Whatever the reason, purchasing a wig is no simple task. There are many more choices than just choosing a cut and color. One of the big choices people are now faced with is the option of going with synthetic or human hair wigs.

Money is often the ultimate deciding factor when it comes to big purchases. While synthetic wigs are almost always the less expensive choice, they will never look as realistic as human hair wigs. Furthermore, a cheap wig is often not properly wefted, which refers to the hair being sewn evenly into the piece; a quality wig, on the other hand, will have a very fine weft that looks natural. Synthetic wigs cannot be styled—that means no coloring, perming, curling or straightening allowed. Another disadvantage of the synthetic wig is its sensitivity to steam and heat, so be careful around those dishwashers and ovens.

In the end, the choice between synthetic and human hair wigs comes down to personal preference and purpose of use. If you just need a cute wig for a costume or a fun night out, you probably don’t need to spend the big bucks on a human hair wig. But if you’re going for an everyday, natural look, human hair is probably your best bet. Whatever you choose, Top Hair Wigs has you covered. Now, we will leave you with this…

Benefits of Brazilian Human Hair Wigs:

Longevity: When properly cared for, a Brazilian human hair wig can last much, much longer than a synthetic hair wig.

Styling: You can use any styling tools you’d like; curling irons, blow dryers, straighteners, whatever you’d like!

Heat: Standing near a heat source? Don’t even worry about it in your human hair wig.

Dye: While it is not recommended you dye your human hair wig multiple times, if you do decide you’d like to change up the color you can do so once or twice.

Natural Styles: Because you can continually change the style of your human hair wig, it is the much better option for someone who plans to wear their wig every day.

Natural Feel: Go ahead and run your fingers through your human hair wig, it will feel just as natural as if you’d grown it yourself.

Breathability: Unlike in a synthetic wig, your scalp won’t perspire.
