The different between human hair wigs and synthetic wigs

Monday, April 24, 2017 12:03:43 AM America/Los_Angeles

One of the first questions we ask women when they visit our wig boutique is: "Are you looking for human hair or synthetic?" For first time wig wearers, the answer is often: "I don't know - What's the difference?" Understanding the difference in these two types of wigs will help you make the right decision for you.


Human hair has the benefit of being able to produce the highest quality wigs and includes great choices like hand-tied, full lace, lace front and monofilament wigs. It is easier to style and clean compared to the synthetic fiber, but is dependent on more time and effort to wash and condition. Plus, it is heat-resistant, which makes it possible to style using styling irons and hair dryers.


The synthetic wigs use a type of artificial fiber that has the ability to look quite similar to natural human hair. On the best quality synthetic wigs it can be difficult to notice the difference when compared to the human hair wigs. A great benefit of these wigs is the ease of use and low-maintenance. It is possible to wear the synthetic wig on purchase with no need for professional styling. Additionally, there isn't a need to be so concerned with the environment because this type of wig is less impacted by frizz or droop.
