If you are dealing with hair loss or maybe you just want to try out a new color without fully committing to it, you may want to try wearing a wig. There are lots of options on the market and the pros at Gabi’s Wigs in Toronto are here to help you find your perfect fit!
When you start shopping for a wig, you may be overwhelmed by the various options. You will find both human hair and synthetic wigs. Since human hair wigs are made with human hair, they offer the most natural look. These wigs can be styled just like natural hair.
In this article, we’ll offer you a few more tips to help you find the most natural-looking wig.
Both lace front and full-lace caps offer a natural look. Typically, the lace front options will be more affordable than the full-lace options. However, they are often itchy and less breathable. Plus, the full-lace is best when it comes to flexibility in styling, including the ability to wear up-dos.
While hand-tied monofilament caps are more expensive, they offer the most natural look because every strand is tied by hand. This creates a wig that can be parted easily and looks more like your natural scalp.
While you have many online options to purchase wigs, it’s best to visit a store and buy one in person. This allows you to have a personal stylist who can measure your head to ensure that you get a proper fit. Plus, you can try on several different colors, lengths, and styles to find the one that best suits you.
After you find a wig that suits you, it’s important that you have it styled properly. Many wigs, no matter how natural looking they are, will look unnatural at first. However, a professional can style your wig to make sure that it fits your face properly by cutting and layering it.
If you still have your natural hair and you’re wearing a wig to try out a new color or style, you’ll want to make sure your natural hair is as flat as possible. The method you use to flatten your hair will depend on the texture, length, and density of your hair. Many people choose to wear a wig cap to secure their hair. However, you may also put it in a low bun, braid, or cornrows.
On average, if taken care of properly, a human hair wig can last about 5 times longer than a synthetic one. However, proper care and storage is critical to extending the life expectancy of your wig. Therefore, you should be washing your wig every 6 to 8 wears with a sulfate-free shampoo. You can find shampoos that are specifically formulated for wigs.
After washing, you’ll want to make sure to dry it thoroughly and brush it out before storing it on a wig stand when you’re not wearing it.
