• Human or synthetic that is the question...... 10 July 2015 | View comments

  • So many times I get asked what wig is better human or synthetic? And my reply is always the same it's totally dependant on you and what you want from your wig. With the massive advances in synthetic wigs becoming more breathable, more comfortable and more natural looking it leaves it totally open to personal preference. If you naturally had a shorter hair cut then I would lean more to synthetic as it will automatically be less heavy so will feel more natural to your scalp in terms of weight and volume, there is also less maintenance with synthetic wigs being they are unable to be heat styled you simply wash, comb and leave to dry. Once dried it will fall back in to its original style. Human wigs are great for longer hair styles as it opens the opportunities for being blow dried, curled, straightened and even in some cases worn up. When it comes to the human hair wigs they tend to be hand knotted and thus making them more breathable and comfortable but also less robust in some cases. Both human and synthetic can now come with roots giving the illusion of natural hair growth to any one looking at them. With synthetic fibres becoming more natural looking and less 60's permed and back combed they make for much smoother and sleek styles. When making the choice between them some of the factors you need to consider are cost, with synthetics more often than not being less expensive than human, maintenance, how much time you would be willing to dedicate to maintaining your new hair, realistic wear, are you looking for an everyday wig or an occasional wig? Lifestyle, does your wig fit your lifestyle and every day schedule? Once you know what you are looking for its as easy and one, two, wig!
