Wigs: Natural versus Synthetic Hair

Wigs: Natural versus Synthetic Hair

One of the biggest considerations in choosing a wig is whether you want to go natural (human hair) or synthetic. The synthetic fibers used in making wigs today look far more realistic than in previous generations, but they can still look less than natural. What follows is a comparison of the pros and cons of both synthetic and natural hair:

How to Tell the Difference:

The easiest way to tell if a wig is made with natural or synthetic hair is to pull a strand out of the wig and burn it. Natural hair will burn slowly and give off a distinctive odor, while synthetic hair will usually tend to melt and/or ball up when placed near flame, depending on the particular composition of the synthetic fiber, or will burn out quickly. In either case, synthetic hair will not give off an odor.

Advantages of Natural Hair Wigs:
    •  more realistic appearance than synthetic wigs
    •  greater durability
    •  the same styling and maintenance requirements as your real hair; can be custom-colored to suit; and can tolerate heat from styling appliances

Disadvantages of Natural Hair Wigs:
    •  it reacts to climate the way your real hair does (may frizz or lose curl in humid weather)
    •  hair must be reset/restyled after shampooing, which can be challenging for someone attempting to do so at home
    •  color will oxidize/fade with exposure to light
    •  hair will break if mistreated by harsh brushing, back-combing or overuse of heat styling
    •  can be heavier than synthetic wigs of similar style/length
    •  recent check for average retail pricing of natural hair wigs show a range from around $150 (US) to over $1000 (US) and higher, depending on style, length, maker, percentage of human hair, and ethnic origin of the human hair used

Advantages of Synthetic Hair:
    •  technological advances have produced modacrylic synthetics (like Kanekalon®) which are so similar in look and feel to protein-rich hair fibers that they can even fool some stylists
    •  a great value; not only are they realistic, but they are less expensive than natural hair; they are also easier to maintain at home; shampooing with cold water will not change the style, nor will exposure to extreme humidity
    •  synthetic wigs tend to be made according to current styles with cut, color and texture already set; usually only needs custom trimming to be ready to wear
    •  color availability is almost unlimited (from natural to fantasy colors); cheapest wig styles tend to be more solid in color, while higher-quality synthetics have blended colors for natural-looking hair
    •  synthetic colors will not fade or oxidize even after long periods in direct sunlight
    •  tend to be lighter in weight, thus more comfortable to wear
    •  recent check for average pricing show synthetic wig prices (retail) ranging from under $50 (US) to over $400 (US), depending on style, length and brand name

Disadvantages of Synthetic Hair:
    •  must avoid extreme heat such as from hair dryers, hot rollers, flat irons and curling irons
    •  traditional hair color will not work with synthetic fibers; recoloring synthetic wigs is not recommended
    •  can appear shiny and unnatural; quality and price affect how natural the hair looks; thick synthetic wigs will look unnatural on fine-haired women

As you can see, there are a number of features that speak for and against each type of wig. The key as a consumer is to figure out what you are looking for from your wig and choose accordingly.
