What Material Should My Wiglet be Made of?
The material of your top hair piece determines how you’ll be able to style it, as well as the price, care instructions, and lifespan of the product.
At Headcovers, we offer four main types of wiglets: human hair, Remy human hair, synthetic hair, and heat friendly synthetic hair. While synthetic is lower maintenance, real hair offers coverage that is virtually indistinguishable to the wearer as well as the observer. In other words, it feels just as authentic as it looks.
Human hair toppers (both normal and Remy) and heat friendly synthetic hair are beloved by many for the flexibility when it comes to styling. These hair pieces can withstand heat tools so you can curl or straighten to your heart’s content. But if that’s not a priority for you - if, in fact, you’d rather your wiglet maintain its predetermined shape forever - then opt for a regular synthetic style. Synthetics are low maintenance, easy to care for, and typically last longer than human hair toppers. And thanks to technology today, they have a super realistic appearance, too.
If you’re still on the fence, browse through our Synthetic Hair vs. Human Hair guide to figure out which material will best fit your lifestyle, budget, and needs. And remember that whichever clip on hair topper you choose, all of our products have been vetted by the Headcovers team for top-notch quality. So really, it’s hard to go wrong.
