Tips for Real Hair Wigs
Wigs made of real human hair are popular for many reasons; they are highly durable, appear entirely natural, can be styled in numerous ways and withstand the heat of common hair appliances such as straighteners, blow-dryers and curling irons. When browsing for real hair wigs, there are some essential considerations of which every customer should be aware.
Real hair wigs can be styled in many ways – worn up or down, curled or in braids and so on – so search for lengths which are suitable to your preferred styles. Density and length are both important in ensuring the wig will tolerate these styles.
The base of the wig should be chosen carefully. There are a few types of “skins” for bases, including synthetic, French front lace and mesh, and a customer’s choice will generally depend on both comfort and style. For a wig that is expected to last a long time, comfort is of the utmost importance.
With so much variety, it’s easy to get carried away with so many different colors, styles, textures and volumes available. Despite this variety, of which customers should take full advantage nevertheless, it’s recommended to choose between colors and styles which, to an appropriate extent, resemble their natural hair.
Older customers need not be self-conscious about the possibility of having to use gray in the wig. On the contrary, it can be a great idea! When it comes to creating a natural appearance with a wig, the use of gray hair can be incredibly valuable. When used in small amounts (wigs need not be entirely gray), this seemingly-small detail can truly go a long way.
The density of one’s natural hair should certainly influence the density of his/her wig. Naturally-thin hair should call for less density in the wig, and vice-versa.
Customers can never do enough research when browsing for wigs, identifying their desired characteristics and narrowing down their wig choices. Because wigs of real hair are generally more expensive than synthetic wigs, prices should always be considered ahead of time. Hair care professionals are just as prepared for negotiating price ranges as they are for the usual steps of choosing and fitting wigs, so customers should not feel entirely on-their-own in a financial sense.
While real hair wigs can be styled just as one would with their natural hair, they must also be cared-for and maintained for the same reason. Customers should always consider the necessary supplies, including wig shampoo, adhesives, conditioner, spray, wig brushes and a proper stand. They are essential for maintaining wigs and ensuring that they last as long as possible.
