Synthetic wigs have more advantages than Camden residents might realize. For those suffering hair loss or looking for an alternative to cutting or dyeing damaged hair, wearing a wig can be a great option. With so many options to choose from and style, synthetic wigs are worth considering.
Why Synthetic Wigs?
Synthetic wigs are often chosen for their cost-effectiveness. Real human hair wigs are often touted as preferable given the ability to style them like natural hair. Now, synthetic wigs have growing possibilities of being styled as well. Choosing a heat-friendly synthetic wig can give you the best of both worlds: bang for your buck and the style you want.
A synthetic wig often does not need extensive upkeep. However, if you want to switch up the style a bit, using hot styling tools can be possible. With the same caution you would use to keep natural hair from burning, some synthetic hair can now be curled or straightened as desired.
Tips to Style a Synthetic Wig
To get a loose, beach curl, wrap a one-inch hair around a wand or one-side of the straightener and roll the curl away from the face. Follow the directions of your wig for the time of heat exposure. Make sure to count the seconds down as you style so as not to scorch the strands. Let the curl fall loose, lightly supporting it in a cupped hand as it settles. Repeat with a one-inch section at a time.
Likewise for straightening, choose small sections at a time, running a flatiron down the hair for the appropriate amount of time on each section. Using long styling clips to hold hair out of your way may be more efficient. Pay attention to how you release the section ends, so as not to create unwanted outward flip in the hair.
Once styled, the curls or straightening will stay semi-permanently until a wash or new styling is applied. Some products are made in mind for wigs. Accessorize yourself with the correct shampoos and conditioners. Some styling tools and brushes were made with wigs in mind as well. Using the right tool for the job will ensure the longevity of your wig.
