Human Haired Wigs vs. Synthetic
Buying a wig has you making lots of checks and balances when doing your research. Itâ€™s a big decision to
make and the price will likely be part of that decision. If price is a concern often one might consider
buying a synthetic wig verses investing in a human hair wig. Investing is the key word here. While the
synthetic wig is less likely to break the bank a human hair wig is an investment.
At Freeda we are proud of the human haired wigs we sell, all of them made with 100% virgin European
hair. Itâ€™s the top grade hair available which will make your wig an investment verses a purchase. Weâ€™ve
made a list of the pros and cons to show you why a human hair wig is the best choice for you.
Hair Acts Like Hair
Well, of course it does! It seems like an obvious statement but once youâ€™ve tried a synthetic wig youâ€™ll
know that hair on a synthetic wig doesnâ€™t â€śactâ€ť like hair. That natural flow and swing of hair doesnâ€™t
exist in a synthetic wig. The styles will generally be stiff. When your hair knots, while annoying, there is
a simple solution. If a synthetic wig knots itâ€™s a real problem that can be tough or impossible to fix.
Quality and Workmanship
The quality of human hair verses synthetic hair is a no brainer, but what about the quality and
workmanship of the cap? Our wigs are created for people who will wear them long term and for many
hours a day. The caps, materials used, thread, size of needles and so many other factors are considered
to make an extremely durable cap that will last a long time. A synthetic wig is not made to last, its
lifespan will be short.
Treat Your Hair Just Like Hair
Again, seems like a no brainer, which it is- until you want to treat your synthetic wig like hair. A human
hair can be washed just like hair, with shampoo and conditioner. Any product, serum, spray or cream
that youâ€™d use on hair can be used on your human haired wig. The care on your synthetic wig will not be
Some of the most fun you can have with your wig is styling it straight or wavy, or any way youâ€™d like.
Using hair tools on synthetic wigs will burn and singe the wig. You even have to be careful when opening
a hot oven. The heat is often high enough to compromise the texture and feel of the synthetic hair.
Coloring a wig can be a great way to have fun with your wig and customize your style. A wig with human hair can be highlighted and dyed just like hair. You can always highlight or lowlight the wig to give it little more pizzazz. A synthetic wig canâ€™t be colored or dyed.
These are but a few of the benefits of a human hair wig. Customers of ours whoâ€™ve come to us after wearing synthetics just canâ€™t believe just how much better the experience with a human hair wig is.
