Are you considering wigs or hair extensions?

Hair extensions are a fabulous way to change your hairstyle.

When it comes to deciding between using wigs or hair extensions, it’s all about preferences and certain conditions. While some people would prefer to use hair extensions, factors like health conditions could prevent them from doing so, causing them to use wigs instead. There are, however, many people who have overcome serious medical illnesses, such as cancer, that elect to wear hair extensions while they’re waiting for their own hair to grow out.

Certain factors like having to go through chemotherapy can prevent you from being able to wear hair extensions because there’s not enough natural hair there to attach them to. Another factor could be the hair isn’t strong enough to support and adhere to the bonds used to attach hair extensions. If you don’t have any such obstacles and are openly trying to decide what would work best for you, it’s important to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each and decide based on your preferences. Here are the main points:


Wigs are the obvious choice for those who are missing a lot of their own natural hair or for those whose hair isn’t long enough to attach to hair extensions. If you don’t want to spend too much time doing your hair every day, wigs are also a great option.  Instead of having to style your hair and hair extensions every day, wigs are much lower maintenance — as long as you make sure you maintain them with quality wig care products, such as hair products for remy hair.

Also, wigs are much warmer because they’re essentially worn as hats throughout the day. If you like to play with crazy colors and trends, wigs are a great way to do so without having to expose your natural hair to the harmful bleaches and chemicals involved in achieving those styles. Many people with green or purple hair could actually be wearing a wig without you realizing it.


Women most often choose hair extensions over wigs because they feel more secure about having something attached to their own hair. Another major reason is because they want to look and feel as natural as possible, especially if their extensions are made completely of human remy hair. For those who aren’t fans of wearing hats, hair extensions will feel a lot more comfortable than a wig. As with wigs, hair extensions can help keep you from damaging your real hair with coloring jobs. Extensions offer more flexibility to style than wigs for those who like discovering different hairstyles frequently. As hair thins with age, hair extensions can also help increase the thickness of your hair and even cover smaller bald or thinning spots.

Either way you choose to go, it’s important to be true to your style, what you like the most and to use the proper hair extensions and wig care products, such as hair products for remy hair to keep your style fresh and smooth.
