Human hair wigs are made of human hair.Before talking about how to care for human hair wigs, we will say something about the types of hair wigs.There are two types of human hair wigs: machine-made and hand-made wig.
The machine-made hair wig is common.Machine made wigs usually cost less because they can be mass produced in a shorter period of time. The machine produced process uses caps that are thicker which creates the appearance of more lift and volume to the hair. However, if a person has a sensitive scalp, a thicker cap can create irritation problems.
The hand-made wigs are more lightly and breathable than machine-made wigs.It costs about 3 days for one worker to finish a wig.This creates a natural look and allows for style versatility, such as changing the position of a part. Construction is labor intensive which makes a hand-tied wig more expensive than a machine-made counterpart. However, the comfort factor makes a hand-tied wig the better choice for cancer patients with sensitive scalps.
