Good hair days can make us feel like we can take on the world
Many women experiment with different cuts, textures and colors as wearing wigs just make it so easy to change your style quickly and easily for a total transformation! This blog post explores how long wigs usually last and how many lace front wigs do you really need to make your favourite styles look gorgeous for as long as possible.
Firstly, you should ask yourself how many wigs you might need to suit your lifestyle is:
1.what is the lifespan of the wigs I already have?
Working out how long your wig will last isn’t an exact science
but there are a few things you should be aware of when you are purchasing a wig’
2.Human hair wigs or synthetic wigs?
What your lace front wig is made from is a big factor in how long it will last. Providing they are cared for properly and are not exposed to harsh daily wear, human hair wigs can stay in good condition for over a year. Synthetic wigs usually start to look tired after about four to six months. This though can vary as it is completely dependent upon how you look after them, how often you wear them and in what environment you are in. Human hair wigs are considered an investment piece and although they are often more expensive than synthetic wigs, they may have a longer lifespan and the quality is just beautiful.
Synthetic wigs are made from fibers that are vulnerable to heat exposure which means any contact with heated rollers, straighteners, hairdryers or even ovens will destroy the quality and lifespan of your synthetic wig (but this does mean you have an excuse to get out of cooking duties)! If you do opt for a synthetic style, shorter cropped wigs tend to last longer than synthetic wigs with more volume and length. That’s because the long fibers are at risk of becoming matted and tangled more frequently due to ‘friction rub’, exposing the wig to more damage over a shorter period of time.
Although wig type is a huge factor in the longevity of your wigs, how you care for it, the environment you wear it in and how often you wear it all contribute to its lifespan. So providing you give it the love it deserves, your wig will stay gorgeous for longer and you can have a good hair day every single day of the week!
So how many lace front wigs do you really need?
There is no right or wrong answer to this question and it really does depend on your lifestyle. Having two or three high-quality ladies wigs in your wardrobe is a great way to start your collection as these can be alternated depending on what you are doing that particular day – it also means all your wigs will have a longer lifespan as they are not being worn all day every day.
You can save your favourite wigs for special occasions (or just when you want to feel a bit more glam) and find an ‘everyday’ style that compliments your features. Many women like to choose a wig that is very similar to their own cut and colour so they feel comfortable in a style that is natural for them.
