Synthetic wigs have now established themselves as a major component in most wigs industry. They provide high quality, low cost and a variety of style options for consumers. There is a general misconception among many first-time wig buyers that all human hair wigs produced are of high quality or better than synthetic wigs; however, this is simply not the case. The reason for this is because synthetic wigs do not actually contain real human hairs. They are made from man-made materials with advanced synthetic technology to resemble human hair but do not have the look and feel of natural human hair.
Many women who originally chose to wear synthetic wigs have now changed their minds and started wearing real human hair wigs.
There are several reasons for this including:
- The desire for versatility;
- Looking younger and feeling more attractive;
- Looking more natural
- Being able to wear them longer without damage or irritation
There are a number of other benefits to choosing to wear human hair versus synthetic wigs; one of which is the fact that real human hair wigs can be styled for virtually any way you want them to look. This alone can be a major benefit to some women who love to change their styles frequently.
Another advantage to choosing synthetic wigs is the fact that they require only minimal care; meaning, frequent or even less frequent washings is required. Synthetic hair is made from acrylic, polyester, nylon or polyester blends, and as such requires no washing or heat styling, but only regular or hot water hair care. You will need to either dry them or place them in a flat dryer on a low heat setting. Due to the fact that synthetic wigs don’t hold water, they do not need to be dried with heat, thus leaving them nice and dry during your wash.
Another advantage of choosing synthetic wigs over human is that they require the use of heat styling tools. They don’t, therefore, have to be ironed after every wash, but instead can be thoroughly cleaned using a mild shampoo. Heat styling tools such as blow dryers, irons, and flat irons can severely damage human hair, especially when using high heat settings. A synthetic wig that is heat-friendly will last far longer than one that isn’t; therefore, choosing a heat-friendly synthetic wig can save you money in the long run.
When it comes to the quality of synthetic wigs, it is hard to argue against them. High-quality synthetic wigs have the ability to not only withstand everyday wear and tear but also to look like real hair. These extensions can be used for all sorts of different styles ranging from traditional longer styles to short style, as well as full weave and lace wig styles. It is this versatility that makes high-quality synthetic wigs such a great investment; once you have used a high-quality synthetic wig you will never want to go back to a natural-looking wig again.
One of the best ways to ensure that your high-quality extensions stay looking their best for as long as possible is to take great care of them. Synthetic wigs can be damaged quite easily if they come into contact with water, heat, or chemicals. For this reason, it is important that you are thoroughly dry and cleanses your synthetic wigs after every wash. If you notice that your extensions are becoming dull or damaged then you should seriously consider applying an extension treatment to revive their look.
There are a number of different methods for extension treatments to restore the vitality of your synthetic wigs, including:
- Cold rollers
- Hot rollers
- Steam rollers
Each method has its own unique way of restoring the natural hair fibres to their former glory. Hot rollers and cold rollers, for example, are both excellent at adding bounce to your hair, as well as helping to prevent split ends. For human hair extensions, steam rollers are able to add bounce to natural hair and help the cuticle of natural hair to remain intact, helping your extensions to stay looking their best for as long as possible.
Another option available to you when it comes to purchasing high-quality synthetic wigs is to opt for heat-resistant synthetic wigs. These types of wigs will help to protect your synthetic wigs from heat damage such as shrinkage so that you can still enjoy the styling of your wig in your favourite ways. In addition, these heat-resistant synthetic wigs offer the flexibility of being able to use different types of hair to create your most unique style. If you are someone who loves to experiment with different hair textures, then heat-resistant synthetic wigs may be the best option for you. This will allow you to keep your favourite styling features of your human hair wigs while adding the durability and bounce of synthetic wigs.
