Things You Need To Know About Human Hair Wigs

Wigs are getting popular these days- many celebrities use these to achieve an entirely new look without wasting time. There are lots of types available in the market these days. It has become difficult to choose which style will look perfect on you. In this article, we will guide and help you with choosing a perfect wig for yourself. Hopefully, at the end of this article, you will be able to make a choice.

Types of Hair in a Wig
First of all, you need to know about the type of hair used to make a wig. There are two types: Human hair and synthetic. Whether you are going to buy a body wave wig, or a curly wig, or a water wave wig, both of them are available in human and synthetic hair. It is a very important decision to choose either type of hair. It is especially daunting for first-time buyers as they don’t know about their pros and cons. For a normal person, both of them look the same, so it is difficult to distinguish.

What is the Human Hair Wig?
As we mentioned earlier that you could use either human hair or synthetic hair. As the name suggests, a human hair wig is made using real human hair. They look, smell, and function like your own natural hair. It can be made using horse hair, cow hair, fur, or human hair. Furthermore, they are expensive because they look natural and be styled like real hair. In many countries like India and Brazil, there are religious ceremonies where the people cut their own hair. Furthermore, a human hair wig has a longer lifespan and can be styled with heat, bleach, and color. We can’t use heat on synthetic wigs as it can damage the hair and also have a short lifespan.

What Are Synthetic Wigs
We use advanced technologies to create man-made fibers that provide the feel and look of real human hair. At the start, synthetic wigs were not really good, but thanks to technological innovations, we are able to create fibers that resemble natural hair. It isn't easy to differentiate between human hair and synthetic hair in some situations because the texture and density are the same. Synthetic hair is made using acrylic or polymer that resembles human hair. In reality, if you have a better quality of fibers, then you cannot realize whether the hair is natural or not. One of the reasons that choose synthetic wigs is that they can retain the style even after washing. On the other hand, human hair wigs cannot retain the style but have a natural look. However, they are versatile in terms of styling.

Types of Wigs
When it comes to the types of wigs, there are lots of them. It is challenging for a beginner to determine which one to buy. So, it is better to get familiar with various styles and designs.

Human Hair Wig
Some of the wigs are made using human hair. They look more realistic than any wig other than there. But they are expensive and make it difficult for a casual observer to distinguish.

Animal Hair Wigs
These wigs are made with animal hair such as yaks, horses, goats, buffalos, etc.

Synthetic Hair Wig
These types of wigs are made using man-made fibers. These are fake hair but look like natural human hair. The reason to make these wigs is that they are inexpensive and provides a natural look. Furthermore, they are able to retain the style after wash.

Traditional Cap Wig
These are traditional wigs that do not have a hat. They have a cap-like design that can be made easily with rows of hair. Most of them are stitched using machines.

Lace Front Wigs
These types of wigs are usually made using natural hair. Furthermore, they only have lace at the front. Furthermore, the cap is a little wider and has clips sewn so that it can remain in place. If you want curly wigs, you can use this wig to create curls using a styling tool.

Lace Frontals
These types of wigs stay in place using glue. That is why; it is important to use skin-safe adhesives to protect the wig. Furthermore, they are expensive compared to regular wigs but more durable.

How to Take Care of Your Wig

Before Washing

It is important to take some precautions before washing the wig. First, you need to remove any tangles. You can detangle the hair using fingertips or a wide-tooth comb. Always start from the ends and then work your way up to the roots to avoid any damage.

Wash the Wig
After detangling the hair, you need to wash the wig. First of all, you need to wet the wig; you can do this in a bathtub instead of a basin as it can tangle the hair. Take a small amount of shampoo and rub it in your hands. After that, apply it to the wig gently. You should not twist, rub, or massage the wig as it can break the hair. Once the shampoo is equally distributed, rinse it with cold running water.

After that, squeeze any extra water and then use a dry towel to remove the rest. You should do this process gently to preserve the integrity of the hair.

Conditioning the Wig
While your wig is wet, take a small amount of conditioner and apply it to the wig. You should do the same process as before to avoid damage. Make sure to spread the conditioning on the entire wig. You should avoid applying the conditioner on the base of the wig. Otherwise, you will end up losing your hair.

While the wig is saturated with conditioner, take a wide-tooth comb to detangle the wig. You should start from the tips and then move up. Furthermore, you should avoid stretching the hair as it can cause damage to the wig. You should avoid using a blow dryer on the wig. Dry air can cause damage, especially if the wig is made using synthetic hair. We will recommend you dry the wig using a dry towel and then leave it in a ventilated place.
