Why synthetic hair should be in your hair wardrobe. Synthetic wigs are GREAT for rainy days and humid climates.
Synthetic wigs perform great in adverse weather conditions. Want perfectly beachy waves that can hold up to high humidity or rain showers? No problem. Want to wash that wig and have it dry overnight and be ready to wear with a light brushing and a shake? No problem.
Do you want to add variety to your hair wardrobe without breaking the bank? Synthetics can do that!
Synthetic wigs and toppers add ease to your hair wardrobe, affordably. On a rainy or humid day, a human hair wig will react with human-hair characteristics – going flat, or frizzy. But your synthetics, they just stay as gorgeous as they started, no matter the weather conditions.
Sometimes even just keeping a synthetic wig around to wear when you don’t feel like washing or styling your human hair wig can be a great option.
But one of the mistakes many people make is buying synthetic wigs and expecting them to work right out of the box. ALL wigs – regardless of the hair type – require cut and customization for YOU. That’s where your wig stylist comes into play. She should work with you during a wig purchase and cut your synthetic wig to work for your face shape and hair likes. Many synthetics contain a lot of volume that can be overwhelming on some people. Plus, there are great products and ways of styling your synthetics that help them look as natural as possible.
Synthetic wig wearing is really wash-and-wear hair, and many of them are comfortable, stylish and really undetectable from human hair. There are some drawbacks to synthetics – many of them don’t last past a year (and some last less than that if you wear them daily). This is common with ALL synthetics – but if they are straight, having your wig stylist steam your wigs will restore them and give them new life (sadly, you can’t steam the curly ones!) You can have synthetics cut into a shorter style, such as a lob (long bob) or even a short bob or pixie depending on the style of your current synthetic wig. This will extend their lives a bit.
Synthetics are a great choice for shorter-term hair wearing, or if you want to infuse variety in to your longterm hair wearing wardrobe. Your wig stylist should cut your synthetic to have it more closely fit your face shape. And you should love their easy care and “seasonal collection” opportunities to go, say lighter and more blonde in the summer, and darker/richer in the winter.
Happy hair wearing!
It’s raining, It’s pouring,
Your wig looks flat and boring. (not anymore!)
