Human Hair vs. Synthetic Wigs

Milan Human Hair Wig

Human hair styles are currently available in our Clearance Department for their lowest prices ever! That’s right, ever…styles like Milan are only $69 making this a great time for you to experiment with a new fiber.  After reading countless inquiries on this blog and on our Facebook page regarding the differences between human hair and synthetic wigs, we’ve decided to help clear the air with a high level overview of the two fibers.

Let’s start with synthetic wigs first:

Synthetic wigs are extremely easy to wear and care for. These styles tend to be lighter and most stylists recommend synthetic wigs because they require the least amount of care. Shorter synthetic wigs are considered “shake-n-go,” meaning that all you do is shake them out and they look great. Longer styles may simply need to be combed or finger-styled, but also require less maintenance.  One thing that’s important to remember is that you should never use heat on a synthetic wig! Any heat source, such as a blow dryer, curling or straightening iron — even an open oven — will damage the fiber and ruin the wig.

Human Hair Wigs:

These versatile wigs can be treated just like your own hair.  They can be curled and styled in any number of ways.  Human hair wigs tend to be a bit heavier and thicker in comparison to synthetic wigs.  Human hair wigs are not “shake-n-go” styles.  They only hold a style as long as your own hair would, which means they require more effort than synthetic wigs. Human hair wigs are a good idea if you are skilled at styling your own hair and don’t mind doing it every day.

If you’re looking for the best of both worlds,  try our heat-resistant VersaFiber Wig.  This curlable fiber allows you to wear it sleek and straight one day and curly the next – giving you the freedom to change your look every day.

    Can U give a human hair wig a permanent?

      Hi Mary. You can. A human hair wig is no different than your own human hair. Our recommendation would be to not do it yourself, have a professional stylist perform the perm.
