Whether you are looking to change your hair style or cover hair loss from a medical condition, wigs are a great option to help you look your best. With so many styles and options to choose from, it can be difficult to make the best decision. If you are looking for the right full cap hair replacement, there are some things to keep in mind to make your decision easier.
Wigs are available in many varieties, including full cap hair replacement made from either human hair or synthetic materials. There are several differences between the two hair system types:
- Human hair can be colored and styled with hot tools capable of damaging synthetic fibers
- Synthetic wigs are more affordable than human hair
- Human hair wigs are more susceptible to rain and humidity
- Synthetic wigs do not provide the same natural look as human hair
Depending on how you will use your hair, you may want to look into either option for your full cap hair replacement. For example, if you are only using your wig for a short time, it might not be worth paying for a human hair wig.
To get the most comfortable fit, select the best cap for your needs. Caps can either include hand stitched options, or you can even choose a wig without a cap. Capless hair systems use a honey comb design and offer better ventilation.
To ensure your full cap hair replacement does not fall off, it’s important to get a wig with a well-designed anchoring system. Options for anchors include:
- Tape tabs
Some options are more comfortable for different wearers so make sure you try each option before making your choice.
Different wigs can weigh more or less, depending on the size, material and length. Human hair wigs weigh more than synthetic hair systems, and long wigs can be heavier as well. Because wig weight is important in determining comfort, try different styles to ensure the one you select won’t be too heavy and hurt your neck or head.
