If you’ve ever worn a traditional synthetic wig, you are familiar with both the pros and the cons. Yes, it’s more affordable, needs very little maintenance and can look quite similar to natural hair.
But then you are somewhat limited in synthetic wig styling options and you have to stay away from heat, like that from an oven or traditional styling tools. That was until the introduction of heat-friendly synthetic wigs!
These Wigs Can Take the Heat
Manufacturers have recently developed synthetic hair fibers that now make a heat-friendly synthetic wig able to withstand the heat of styling tools. While the hair fibers are not 100% heat resistant (and neither is natural hair), the heat-friendly fibers can be curled with a curling iron or ironed straight with a flat iron.
These wigs now offer the wearers many of the same styling options of their own natural hair or human hair wigs. It’s important to note that the style is often “baked” into the synthetic fibers, so the look will hold until the hair is washed or heat-styled in a different way.
As with any style of wig, it’s important to use products and tools made especially for wigs to lengthen the life and uphold the condition of the wig. Shampoo, conditioner, brushes and even heat tools are made specifically for wigs and should be used whenever possible.
