What Material Should I Choose?
At Headcovers, we offer four main types of wigs for women: synthetic, heat-friendly synthetic, human hair, and remy-human hair. The material of your wig affects how you can style it, as well as the price, care instructions, and lifespan of the product. While synthetic is easier to maintain, 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 wigs and heat-friendly synthetic hair are beloved by women for their flexibility when it comes to styling. These wigs 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 wig maintained its predetermined shape forever - then opt for a basic synthetic. Thanks to technology today, synthetics have a super realistic appearance, too.
