Hair loss is more common than one might think, but it doesn’t have to feel like the end of the world. Whether suffering hair loss caused by aging, medications, medical treatments, trichotillomania or alopecia areata, both men and women can benefit from wearing wigs. They all come in an array of styles, from synthetic hair to human hair. The right wig can make all the difference in increasing a person’s self-esteem, confidence and willingness to be seen, so it’s important to choose wisely. There are five top reasons why one should consider choosing human-hair wigs as opposed to synthetic wigs.
- Authentic Looking
A frequent complaint heard by physicians and other professionals who have suggested that their patients and clients try wearing a wig is that it makes them look funny. Cheap, synthetic wigs are easy to come by, but they often leave the wearer feeling like an obvious fake. Wigs made from real human hair offer the advantage that synthetic wigs don’t — they are authentic-looking. While synthetic ones are manufactured to look like the real things, simply put, they just don’t measure up. To get a look that doesn’t look like it was taken off of a department store mannequin, the best bet is to purchase a high-quality human-hair wig.
- Matches Natural Hair
As they say, “you get what you pay for.” Such is the case when buying a wig. The worst thing a person who suffers from hair loss can do is buy a wig that looks like it belongs to somebody (or something) else. While some synthetic wigs may come pretty close to one’s desired look, human-hair wigs are able to match all types of hair colors, textures and lengths even better. Working with an expert who can match one’s hair to a human-hair wig can go a long way toward making one feel more like themselves.
- Easily Styled
Unlike most synthetic ones, human-hair wigs can be styled with ease. Oftentimes, a synthetic wig is bought for their manufactured style, offering little means to change the look. In contrast, because natural ones are made with human hair, they can be regularly washed and styled with any tools of choice, including curling irons and straight irons like normal. However, care must be taken because human hair is more fragile and lacks natural oils. In any case, human-hair wigs may be a little more expensive upfront, but there’s no need to buy multiple ones and it pays off in the long run.
Nobody wants to be stuck with the same old thing, day in and day out. A Human-Hair wig offers so much versatility right from the start. Whether one wants long hair, short hair, or something in between, the options are endless. Those looking to add some color in the form of conservative highlights or go all out with vibrant ombre dyes will love what they can do with human hair.
- Less Irritating
Synthetic hair wigs may have their place, but for many people, they can be irritating to the scalp, nape of the neck and other areas. These irritations might be minor annoyances for some, but those allergic to synthetic hair might have serious issues that prevent them from taking advantage of wearing a wig.
A wig is a great way to cover up hair loss whether temporary or long term. They can be bought in a wide range of lengths, colors, styles, and textures; the options are only limited by one’s own imagination. However, not all wigs are the same. Synthetic wigs can lack the naturalness and versatility that human-hair wigs offer. Not only that, synthetic wigs can be irritating to the skin and lead to allergic reactions. That’s why it’s always best to stick with a human-hair wig.
