When choosing a wig it is often difficult to decide where to being. With so many colors, styles, wig types, and brands, picking your natural wig for the first time may seem overwhelming. It’s important to understand the difference between natural wigs and synthetic wigs as this can be a good starting point for choosing your perfect wig.
Natural Wigs from Simmys of London are made from harvested natural human hair, so they resemble just like real human hair. Synthetic wigs are made from artificial-fibers using the latest technology to give the overall feel and appearance of human hair. Many first-time wig buyers feel that human hair wigs offer a much better look than synthetic hair wigs, it’s often not easy to differentiate between these two. The real difference lies beneath the surface.
Let’s have a close look at the properties of each wig type as this will help you in making an informed decision when buying your wig:
These wigs offer a great styling versatility. You can color them, perm them, and they can also be styled like natural hair. However, take your wig to a good stylist if you have plans to alter the style. You can also get natural hair wigs in so many textures, so you can easily match your texture closely. Also, these wigs have a long life even when you wear them daily. Natural wigs feel great and look incredibly natural.
However, these European hair wigs have a high maintenance cost and they need to be deep-conditioned, washed, and re-styled frequently. As these wigs come from real human hair, they are quite expensive. It’s not easy to find the exact color if you have plans to replace your natural hair wig. Every wig may slightly vary because every wig has hair harvested from so many different people. They also react to weather and their color fades with time. The hair may suffer damage if it’s subjected to harsh brushing, overuse or back combing. They are bit heavy and need more styling as well.
Synthetic wigs are easy to clean as they have very good “style retention” so there is no need to style them again and again. Just take them out and shake them and they return to their original style. They also easily hold their style irrespective of the weather. You can also try different styles and colors without any need to pay a hefty amount to your hair stylist by buying synthetic wigs. There are huge amounts of colors available in these wigs. In fact, there are many fantasy colors as well. These wigs also cost less than natural human hair wigs. You also won’t have to worry about their maintenance. High-quality synthetic wigs look just like natural wigs, so you get that high-end feel without spending more.
Some budget wigs have unnatural shine and may last as long as natural wigs. They also have lesser versatility as they cannot be curled and straightened with heat styling tools unless you buy a “heat friendly” synthetic wig. Most of the synthetic wigs cannot be recolored as traditional hair color does not stick to its fibers.
