Wigs are accessories that many take pride in. They are an outlet for self-expression and a fantastic way to show off your style without changing your hair permanently. The essential things to keep in mind are the comfort and how confident your’s makes you feel when you wear it. Allusions wigs tend to invoke a lot of confidence!
If your wig looks a bit more unnatural than it should, It might be the materials it was made from. Synthetic materials are most often used to make costume wigs, or even more realistic but less expensive wigs meant for everyday use, but they are not very true to the image of natural hair.
Synthetic hair wigs are usually made of quality plastic fibers such as polyester, acrylic, or polyvinyl. Because these wigs are made of simple materials, they are less expensive than real hair, but there are noticeable differences in quality. Synthetic wigs are quite shiny and can feel like plastic, two factors that can wreck the style or aesthetic you’re going for. This is why natural hair wigs are usually favored.
Though they can get pricey, they are an investment and can, of course, be used for many years to come as long as they are taken care of. The human hair is usually graded as “virgin” hair, meaning it has never been treated with chemicals or dyes of any kind.
The great part about human hair is that it can be dyed normally, so you don’t have to treat your own hair with anything if you are wanting to try a new color. Human hair looks natural, and it feels great too! Treating yourself to something that makes you look and feel amazing can change the way you think about wigs in general.
Lace Front vs. Full Lace
Laced wigs are known for their ability to make a wig look as natural as possible on anyone’s head. Most costume wigs have a very fake looking front and scalp that makes the fact you are wearing a wig very apparent since you can tell exactly where the wig and your scalp are separated. Even some cheaper, everyday wigs are made like this. These wigs often have a fringe or hair draped over the front to cover the separation, but that isn’t always the desired style.
Lace front wigs are the solution! They make the transition from the hair to your skin smooth and natural by having a gradual thinning of the hair rather than a straight cut-off point. Baby hairs and a realistic hairline create a brilliant illusion that this is your new hair.
Full lace wigs are different in that all of the hair is sewn into a completely lace cap. It acts as a realistic looking scalp that stretches across your head. This kind of wig is known to be the most versatile because you can wear your hair in many different styles while maintaining a natural, consistent looking scalp.
