When shopping for wigs in the past, your selection of wigs was limited. Synthetic wigs were known to arrive pre-styled and there was no changing it. Synthetic wigs couldn’t be styled by way of heat; they would have been damaged and unusable. Then human hair wigs were introduced, which allowed the individual to style and customize their wig to suit their needs. Synthetic wigs were still lagging behind because of the inability to be styled by way of heat. However, new technology has brought synthetic wigs back into relevance.
This new fiber technology allows individuals to use heat on their synthetic wigs in order to style them to their liking. A synthetic wig that can be styled by heat will be labeled as:
- Heat Friendly
- Heat Defiant
- Heat Resistant
This means that styling by way of blow-dryer, curling iron, and flat iron are safe to use on the synthetic wig. The new technology allows a blend of both synthetic fibers and human hair fibers to be used to create the wig. As the technology continues to advance, wigs can be styled with heat products reaching temperatures as high as 350 degrees Fahrenheit. It is recommended that styling at that high of a heat should be kept to a minimum in order to preserve the life of your synthetic wig.
