Human Hair Wigs verses Synthetic Wigs. Which are best?

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:
Light weight and comfortable
Natural looking, moves the way natural hair does
Soft, fitted, comfortable cap construction
Natural looking scalp making it easy to part.

Cons:  
Not a lot of volume
More expensive
Not a ton of hair

Look great for summer pictures with STRUT Hair Solutions!

Today is the first day of summer, long warm days ahead, vacations with our families, etc, sounds lovely until we get anxiety about our hair. We all want to look great for the poolside selfie, summer weddings and Strut Hair Solutions is here to keep you looking your best all season long.  Raquel Welch stated for her new 2016 summer collection “This is the season to live beautifully, why not have a love affair with your hair?” I liked that. Why not! When our hair looks great we have a confidence that we radiate to others, and we feel like a million bucks. So my question would be, “How can we create that everyday this summer and look our best?” The answer, my friend, is adding wigs or hair extensions to your beauty regime. Celebrities have been using alternative hair for decades, now it’s your turn. Let’s explore your options to your best summer hair.

Wigs

New Raquel 2016 Collection – Ready to wear hair!

Wigs– There is a myth that all wigs are hot, don’t breathe, and/or look fake, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Today wigs come less than 2 oz, these wigs are 100% hand tied where every hair is hand knotted causing the hair to look like it is growing our of your scalp. With 100% hand knotted wigs you also have the most breathe ability. The material used to knot the hair is so thin and in most cases super soft. Once you have this wig on for say 10 minutes you’ll forget you have it on and I tell my clients the wig kinda becomes a part of you. With ready to wear wigs you truly never have a bad hair day, just shake and go. As for looking fake, no way, at STRUT Hair Solutions we customize and cut the wig to fit your face shape and help you choose the most flattering color.  Wigs are great for vacation so your not spending all your time on your hair and wedding pictures look great you don’t have to worry about flat hair or thin spots showing.

 

 

 

 

Before After Natural Part

Hair Topper-Fills hair in at the crown get more volume/fullness

Hair Toppers – If you don’t feel like a wig is for you, maybe you’re just thinning on the crown we offer hair toppers.  These the best for our thinning hair clients! These come in a variety of sizes and colors and fit to the thinning areas on the top of your head. They add coverage, volume, and fullness to the areas you need. Most client’s love this option as their own hair is integrated with the hair topper giving a seamless transition from topper to your hair. I do highly recommend human hair for your hair toppers to get the most natural blend.  Hair toppers are easy to travel with and are light weight and cool, just like the 100% hand tied wig after a few minutes you’ll forget you have anything on at all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

18" Clip in Remy Human Hair Extenstions

18″ Clip in Remy Human Hair Extensions

Hair Extensions – These are great for adding length, volume or both. Easy to use with clip in hair (no commitment) or we can apply a semi permanent option for you (lasts up to 4 months).  If your hair won’t grow any more past a certain length or keeps breaking off, hair extensions are the solution for you.  Clip-in hair extensions are great for brides, wear your hair down or have more fullness for an up do.  My girl friends love them when they go out on dates, just gives that extra boost of confidence. Who doesn’t want full hair? Come in today for a consultation with one of our hair addition experts and see what more hair can do for you. www.struthairsolutions.com

 

Khloe Kardashian on E! News talk about hair extension collection

Last night I had a few minutes and was flipping through TV channels, I stopped on E! to catch up on some pop culture. Only 15 minutes into the program Khloe Kardashian came on and showed her hair extension collection!  http://www.eonline.com/news/766644/why-khloe-kardashian-travels-with-boxes-of-hair

It was great how she had all of her hair organized in plastic bags and then she color coated them. She showed the box with her current hair, ombre hair, etc.

The best way to store extensions is in a plastic box or the plastic bags. This way the dust and elements stay off them. I would recommend cleaning the hair and brushing out any knots before you store them. The plastic bags are also a great way to travel with your hair when you aren’t wearing it.

The other great thing in the story was how much hair she has.  Different lengths and colors, hair to suit any look or mood she is in. One of the beauty’s of hair extensions is that you can lighten or darken your hair by adding hair extensions in the color you desire there for not damaging your own hair. I have a lot of clients who purchase our highlight pack just to add some fullness and light pieces around the face. They last 6-12 weeks in the hair before needing service.

Hair extensions also help hold your hair style in place. I have been wearing hair extensions now for about 8 years and for me personally my hair is in better shape, my style holds a few days, they give me insane volume which I am now addicted too.  I cannot imagine ever not wearing some amount of hair extensions.

Please call for a free consultation to see if hair extensions would be right for you. Our hair addition experts are more than happy to answer your questions. www.struthairsolutions.com

 

 

 

STRUT helps the 1 in 4 U.S. women suffering from thinning hair!

Did you know that 1 in 4 women in the U.S. suffers from fine, thinning hair?  This can really affect a woman’s confidence. At STRUT Hair Solutions, we offer many options that aren’t limited to wigs for thinning hair.

First, let’s get the hair and scalp in great condition. There are many cosmetic products available at your local drug store or beauty supply, but these products don’t solve the issue; they offer a temporary fix. At STRUT Hair Solutions, we carry pharmaceutical grade products that have DHT blockers and other ingredients to make your hair stronger and stop any more shedding. This option will take some time to see results; however, why not use a product that promotes hair growth?

Secondly, there are hair toppers and hair pieces. These are pieces of hair that secure to the top of your head. They can be secured via pressure clips or bonding. The top of the head is the area most women experience hair thinning and the scalp showing. We recommend remy human hair to get the most seamless blend with your own hair, since a hair topper/hair piece is incorporated with your hair. This way you can style the hair piece just as you would your own hair.  You will walk out feeling sexy, and looking years younger. Full hair is youthful, and a hair topper can give you that.

Lastly, if your hair loss is severe or if you want the easiest quickest fix, say goodbye to bad hair days and hello to wigs. Wigs get a bad rap, but they are truly amazing! No one will know you’re wearing a wig. Hand tied, monofilament, and lace-front wigs are less than 3oz in weight, so they’re extremely light and cool on the scalp. We tell clients in our studio that the thin mesh used in wigs now is so transparent that it looks like the hair is growing out of your head. The only thing you will notice is the amount of compliments about your hair you’re getting.

For wigs, you have the choice between remy human hair wigs or synthetic hair wigs. During your consultation, our hair addition experts will discuss with you which option would be best for your lifestyle and budget. Human hair looks the most natural. It has the most versatility and definitely has the longest wear.

Synthetic hair wigs are what we call ‘Shake-and-Go’ hair. The colors of synthetic wigs are super vibrant, and the wigs come pre-styled. Usually, we only need to thin some of the hair out and trim the bangs to make it custom fit your face shape. We include those services with any wig, hair extension, or hair piece you buy from us.  You’ll look like you spent hours on your hair and in minutes you’ll look fabulous.

We tell our clients that if you wear your hair above the shoulder, go for the synthetic wigs. If you prefer longer hair, remy human hair wigs are perfect for you.

Please feel free to come in to the location nearest you in Fresno or San Diego, email us any questions you may have, or schedule a consultation with us. We are here to help and keep you looking your absolute best.

A few tips we recommend to help keep your HD fiber wig or Hair piece in great condition!

• Only use a wide tooth comb on HD fiber wigs or hair pieces. (no soft bristle brushes, picks or combs, they can cause frizzing and or tangling)
• Controlled temperature flat irons and curling irons are ok to use on HD fibers as long as they
DO NOT exceed 280 degrees. (no blow-dryers or uncontrolled tools are to be used on HD fibers)
• HD fibers ARE more maintenance then a typical synthetic wig or hair piece, but you do have more flexibility and versatility with HD fibers.
• Be cautious of stoves, campfires, heating lamps and other uncontrolled heat elements except for the sun.
• Fizziness and or tangling can occur without the proper care and synthetic product to maintain the life of the wig or hair piece.
• We recommend our HD detangler to help protect the HD fiber.
