Human Hair Wigs verses Synthetic Wigs, which one is the best choice for you?

Shopping online or in a store we always look at prices. The cheaper the better we always think, because we are saving money. Is cheaper really always better just to save a few extra dollars? You can be the judge of that as we describe what makes the best natural wigs below.

Ever wonder the big difference between the best human hair wig verses a synthetic wig? Yes price is a factor but there’s more to it then just the price tag.

SYNTHETIC AND HUMAN HAIR MACHINE MADE WIGS

Synthetic and Human hair machine made wigs are what most people identify wigs to be like and tend to be the most common.  As you can see in the picture above wefts of hair are sewn together by a machine to create the over all look of the wig. Machine made wigs tend to be less expensive because they can be mass produced quickly. Synthetic and Human hair machine made wigs tend to have more volume  and lift due to the thickness of the cap.  These can look very realistic when the hair falls in the way its sewn. Due to the way machine made’s are sewn the top or scalp portion of the wig tends to look ratted and unrealistic.  I would not recommend a machine made synthetic or human hair wig for a person with a sensitive scalp or is irritable to certain materials. Over all synthetic and human hair machine made wigs are great for someone who is on a budget and likes volume in their hair!

Pros:
More volume, more lift, more hair!
Least expensive
Can look realistic

Cons:
Thicker, heavier cap construction
Can be itchy or uncomfortable to sensitive scalps.
Cap construction can be more hot and bulky.
Unrealistic looking scalp

100% HAND TIED SYNTHETIC AND HUMAN HAIR WIGS

The idea of wigs being hot, heavy and uncomfortable is true but wigs are not all made the same. Depending on the wig cap can determine the comparability and flexibility of each wig. 100% hand tied synthetic and human hair wigs weigh less then 2 ounces in weight, leaving you feeling light and comfortable. In the picture above you can see that the cap is constructed very differently from a machine made wig. The 100% hand tied synthetic and human hair wigs have each fiber or hair individually hand sewn into the soft mesh cap.  This technique recreates the movement of the way our natural hair moves and lays. Unlike machine made’s 100% hand tied cap’s have a very natural looking scalp giving the illusion of real hair. This type of cap gives you the option to change your part and customize your wig even more to how you like to wear your hair. The caps are fitted and lay smoothly against your head which makes it feel like there is nothing is on your head. Wigs with realistic scalp appearances really tie your whole look together and make your hair look thick, yet real. Overall 100% hand tied synthetic and human hair wigs are more expensive but can you put a price tag on comfortability, natural looking, light weight and happiness?

Pros:
