One of the most important considerations when choosing a wig is whether it should be of natural hair or synthetic hair.
Synthetic wigs have come a long way in recent years. The synthetic fibers used today look more real than before, but still lack a piece to match the natural hair. The most appealing thing about synthetic hair is that it can be used right away without having to style it first. This is fine for single partying, but not as a long-lasting option. Here wigs of real human hair are the better choice.
Although synthetic hair is easier to handle, it still lacks a degree of versatility that only natural hair can provide. With synthetic hair, the variety of styling is limited and even heat-friendly fibers can be difficult to style because they are more resistant to hair changes.
Synthetic wigs also have a shorter shelf life than wigs of real human hair. The expected shelf life of synthetic hair pieces is only 4-6 months and heat-friendly synthetic hair has a shelf life of 2-3 months only.
In contrast, wigs of real human hair give the most natural look and a good sense of well-being. The wigs have incredible softness as well as shine and movement that are difficult to recreate with synthetic hair. At the same time, the hair can be cut and styled to your own personal taste. Immediately it may look like the expensive solution, but if you give the wig the proper care, it can also last much longer than a synthetic wig. Therefore, a wig of real human hair is often a really good investment.

2. The same styling and maintenance as your natural hair
3. Can be customized to your desired hair color
4. Longer shelf life than synthetic wigs
5. Can withstand the heat from your styling gear
