Wigs are more common than you may expect. With all the technology out there, some of them are nearly undetectable. Whether you wear a wig as a protective style, just to switch up your look, for a performance, for health reasons or to transition from relaxed to natural, a wig is a great go to. Here is some must needed information to help you choose the right wig for your needs and style.

Natural vs. Synthetic

  • Human hair is the higher quality hair, but if the construction isn’t done right it won’t matter. There are high quality synthetic wigs on the market and guess what? They tend to be more affordable!
  • Human hair wigs are often very expensive, but they are a great investment, as they tend to last 5-10 years with proper care and maintenance. Synthetic wigs tend to only last anywhere from a few weeks to 6 months (depending on how often you wear it).
  • Natural wigs are extremely versatile. You can color, style and clean these wigs as often as you’d like. Synthetic wigs tend to hold their shape longer, even after a quick washing, but can’t be washed often.
