The Truth About Synthetic Wigs

Have you decided to give wigs a try? In this blog, we will provide you with some tips on how to choose the right wig for you.

Choosing a wig should be an empowering experience as you rediscover your self-image and confidence. To help with this challenge, the team at Wills Wigs have put together some useful points about wigs.

First off, you are not alone with hair loss

Regardless of when or why it happens, hair loss can be a challenging experience. The most important thing to remember is – you are not alone. More than 4 in 10 women have suffered from hair loss. An online poll by Loose Women in 2017 found that 94% of women worry about hair loss.

These numbers show that hair loss isn’t just a common concern, it affects almost one in two women in one way or another during their lifetime. The good news is that there are options and help available.

Synthetic or human hair wigs?

Synthetic and human hair wigs both have their advantages and disadvantages. In the past, synthetic wigs were often seen as a cheap and inferior alternative to human hair wigs. However, synthetic wigs have come a long way in recent years. With the advancement of technology, the higher quality synthetic wigs today can feel almost like natural human hair. They are also easier to maintain and care for in comparison to natural hair, making them a popular choice for women who are looking for an affordable and versatile option. 

Human hair wigs are typically more expensive. Since they are made with real hair, they will have a more natural feel and can be styled in many ways. With proper care, they can have a longer lifespan than synthetic wigs but they are also subjected to colour fading over time and can be impacted by the weather. 

With that, let’s talk about the common misconceptions about synthetic wigs.

Myth 1: Synthetic wigs look fake.

This is simply not true. Today’s synthetic wigs are made from high-quality fibres that can be styled to look just like real hair. In fact, many people will not be able to tell that you are wearing a synthetic wig unless you tell them.

Myth 2: Synthetic wigs are hot and uncomfortable to wear.

Todays synthetic wigs are much lighter than they used to be, with lighter caps. this makes them more comfortable to wear in warmer weather.

Myth 3: Synthetic wigs are expensive.

There are many price points for different types and qualities of synthetic wigs. Choosing a wig is a very personal decision and it is not always defined by the price tag. Choosing the best wig for you should be a balance between a style you enjoy, how it fits with your lifestyle and its affordability for you.

Myth 4: Synthetic wigs are difficult to maintain.

Synthetic wigs are actually very easy to care for. Our team can coach you through the easy steps to care for them. They will dry quickly and easily, ready for your next wear.

Myth 5: Synthetic wigs can't be styled.

This is not true. You can style some synthetic wigs. Some synthetic wigs are made with heat-resistant fibre. With care, they can be styled with heat.
