Don't let price be your only consideration though. There are many other things which you must take into account. How much do you intend to wear the wig? If you will wear it only occasionally for an evening out or a party then a synthetic wig, or several of them, might be a good choice for you. If you intend to wear your wig a lot, including daily wear to work or business, the best choice is definitely a human hair wig. The main reason for this is longevity of your hairpiece. Human hair simply lasts a great deal longer under heavy wear than does synthetic.


If you want the best appearance, human hair is again the best choice. It is natural, looks and feels natural and simply is a better wig. Synthetic hair wigs although greatly improved in quality these days can never compare with human hair for that natural look and feel.

Then there is the question of styling. A real hair wig can be treated just like your own hair. You can restyle it using a hair dryer and curling tongs to any style you want after washing it. Synthetic wigs cannot be successfully restyled and will always remain in the same style.


Heat damages the hair and can melt it completely so you must never use heat to restyle your synthetic wig or you may ruin it completely. Human hair wigs are often made from hair imported from China or India. This is long black hair which is excellent for making African American women's wigs. It is cleaned, treated, and styled into many looks. This real hair can be dyed to many colors besides black and is very versatile.

There are advantages to synthetic wigs of course. As previously mentioned they cost a lot less and you could purchase several of them for the price of one good natural hair wig. This means you can change the style of your hair frequently if you wish simply by donning another wig. A synthetic wig keeps it style even after washing so you do not have to restyle it every time you wash it.


There has always been discussion about which kind of wig is best and there are devotees of both types. However there is really no question that real hair wigs are top of the line and many buyers are prepared to pay the higher price for a really top quality human hair wig.
