Wigs are great for your beautiful and abundant hairstyles. Broadly speaking, there are two kinds of wig: human hair and synthetic hair. Sometimes, it is hard to decide which kind of wig you are fit in. If you are a constant wig user, you’d better clearly understand the advantages and disadvantages of these two types of wigs before purchasing. Which is right for you?

 

Human Hair

humanhairwighumanhair1

a. PROS

1. Most Natural Look & Feel

2. Like Human Hair – Soft & Versatile

3. More Durable

b. CONS

1. More Expensive

2. Majority Made From Asian Hair

3. Require Maintenance – daily styling

 

 

Human Hair is still the superior choice if quality is the only consideration. Human hair wigs are like my own. Among human hair wigs, Remy human hair is considered a supreme option.  Hair follicles are kept running in the same direction when collecting and crafting the wig or hairpiece.  With cuticles all running in the same direction, tangling is greatly reduced and hair looks and feels silkier.

 

Synthetic Hair

Never as good as human hair, synthetic hair has come a long way in recent years up to the point where it is difficult to tell the difference. Synthetic hairs become the things that they feel almost like human hair.  Some could say that even with some of the higher quality synthetic pieces you would never know they were not natural human hair if you didn’t have the human hair right next to it to compare!

a. PROS

1. Readiness – Permanently Set with Wave, Curl and Volume

2. Holding Firmly – Keeping the Style Even in Bad Weather

b. CONS

1. Lacking Versatility

2. Vulnerable To Heat – Only Some Are specially Heat Friendly

3. Less Durable – Able to Last about 4-6 months (Heat Friendly 2- 3 months)

 

Synthetic hair wigs have great pros and some weaknesses, and the limited versatility of synthetic hair becomes less of a consideration when you factor in the affordability. However, you may choose to have a wide variety of styles on hand and ready to wear!

3. Synthetic or Human Hair Wigs

Before buying you have to decide between the wig made of synthetic fibers or the wig made of natural hair. If you are a constant wig user, you’d better compare and contrast the pros and cons of these two types of wigs before buying. No matter what type is chosen, the wearer should be aware of how to care for their wig so it will last.

a. Human Hair

Buyers should be aware that a human hair wig is more expensive than a synthetic hair wig. Caring for a human hair wig is very similar to caring for normal human hair. These wigs can withstand brushing, blow drying and heat styling without any problems. No matter what ethnicity of hair is used, wigs should always be washed in luke-warm water with a gentle shampoo and a thick, nourishing conditioner.

b. Synthetic Hair

SyntheticWig

Some benefits to synthetic hair wigs: accessibility in all textures, colors, and styles, easily matching with a woman’s natural hair, easier to styling. Synthetic hair wigs are typically much more affordable than human hair wigs. The main issue with owning a wig made of synthetic fibers is that it cannot be restyled using any sort of heated hair appliance. Heat can cause the wig fibers to melt and possibly become damaged beyond repair. Also, synthetic hair wigs typically don’t last as long as human hair wigs, and usually need to be replaced within a year.

4. Yaki & Half Wigs

Yaki wigs are some of the most popular types of wigs for black women. Yaki is a hair texture that is created to look and feel like African American hair that has been processed by relaxers. Half wigs are popular with many black women, and are typically used to make a woman’s hair appear longer or fuller. Some half wigs are clipped into the hair, while others are placed on top of the hair in a headband form.

Vodka can actually encourage hair growth. There is a scalp stimulator recipe that combines two teaspoons of vodka, 5 drops of lavender, chamomile and rosemary oil with one tablespoon of distilled water. This mixture is then massaged into the scalp to kill germs and open up the hair follicles to encourage hair growth.

Taking biotin or a dietary supplement that contains biotin can significantly contribute to growth during your transition. Biotin is vital to cell proliferation making it an effective tool for hair growth. Biotin also renews the follicles and roots of the hairs that are already growing which will result in thicker, fuller and healthier hair.
