If you are new to wigs and want to purchase one, then what you may have in mind is that you only need to choose the color and style you like. But actually the shopping of wigs is a little more complicated than what you have imagined.
In order to buy the right thing for yourself, the first decision you will need to make is to select between two human hair extensions clip in types of wigs: the synthetic ones and the human hair ones. Both of them come in many styles and colors and have their pros and cons. A synthetic wig is cheap, but it has a tendency to look fake and it is harder to maintain. While a human hair wig is more realistic looking and lasts longer, but it is more expensive.
Another important thing you need to consider when purchasing wigs is that what type of cap is used for the wigs. The cap is what you will pull over your head, a good quality cap can make you feel comfortable. Although there are many different kinds of wig caps out there to choose from, the lace cap is the most popular one. The lace cap will make you feel very comfortable since it allows your scalp to “breathe”.
There are two categories for lace wigs, which are the lace front wigs and the full lace wigs. The main difference between them is the lace base, a lace front wig has a lace base on the front half of the head while a full lace wig has a lace base that covers the whole scalp. You need to choose carefully between them, a wrong selection may cause a lot of inconvenience.
Full lace wigs have many advantages, and one of them that stand out is that they look very natural and realistic. As long as it is attached to the head properly, it can be styled in the same way as real hair. A full lace wig is very lightweight. So you do not even need to remove it even if you wear it for several days. But what makes people feel headache is that it is so difficult to attach the wig to the head, which is one of the disadvantages for the full lace wigs. When you wear this kind of wig, it is a long process, because it needs to be glued all around the circumference of your head. So if you do not have a lot of time, a full lace wig is not suggested to be used.
