Common Wig Questions

wig-questionsFor those who are looking ahead to the possibility of needing a wig to handle their hair loss, the future can seem daunting and unnerving. Many women tend to have a number of different wig questions and aren’t sure what questions to ask and who to ask. Here are some of the more common wig questions.

  1. Is there a difference between human hair and synthetic wigs?

There is a difference between the two wigs. A synthetic wig is made from synthetic hairs, which means it cost less and has a shorter life when compared to a human hair wig. A human hair wig is created from the hair of a number of different ethnicities, which means they are more expensive but will have a longer life. You can also use heat products on a human hair wig instead of a synthetic wig.

  1. What is a wig cap?

A wig cap is a cap worn underneath your wig to help keep it in place. While some wigs can be worn without a cap, a wig cap helps to keep your wig looking natural. There are several different types of wig caps, so ask your stylist which is best for you.

  1. How should I handle cleaning my wig?

Cleaning your wig is essential in extending the life of your wig and getting your full money’s worth. There is no real time frame for cleaning; it depends on how often you wear your wig and the level of perspiration it is in contact with. Be sure to use specific cleaning products for wigs in order to prevent damaging the fibers.

  1. How should I choose my wig?

There are a few things to consider when choosing a new wig. Think about how often you will be wearing the wig and for how long. A wig that will only be used in certain occasions over a small period of time can be synthetic while you may want to invest more in a wig that you will be wearing all the time over a long period of time.
