Our human hair wigs are recommended for women who have experience wearing wigs and enjoy the styling versatility they allow. Human hair wigs provide a highly natural look and a silky feel. They allow the most styling versatility possible because human hair wigs can be styled using heated styling tools. These wig typically come in a basic style, but most real hair wigs will have to be professionally styled or trimmed to give the exact look you require.
We encourage our cancer and chemotherapy patients to consider a high quality synthetic wig, especially if you have never worn a wig before. Human hair wigs require more maintenance, time and skill to maintain than synthetic wigs. When one is not feeling well, one of the greatest benefits of wearing a wig is the "shake and go" ease of wearing them. You lose this benefit with human hair wigs. Please call us with any questions or concerns - we will be happy to explain your wig options in greater detail.
Human Hair wigs are made from 100% real human hair that has often been donated. Because human hair wigs are made of real hair, they require much more maintenance, styling and upkeep. Without the natural oils from your scalp to condition the wig, they can get dry and brittle without proper maintenance. Just like your own hair, they will lose their style in the rain or humidity and must be restyled. Human Hair wigs provide ample styling options because you can do anything to a human hair wig that you can do with real hair that grows naturally from your scalp. They are also much more expensive than synthetic wigs. Curling or straightening these wigs is not an issue at all! Style it as you please! Human hair wigs can last a year or more (if worn daily) with proper care.
