If you are looking into getting a hair wig, chances are you've come across synthetic hair wigs as well as human hair wigs. Both kinds of wigs have their pros and cons, obviously, so some research is helpful before making a purchase. Let's take a look at the benefits and downsides of synthetic wigs to hopefully help you in your choice.
There are several advantages to wearing a synthetic hair wig. First of all, whatever style you end up choosing is the style you will have permanently (or for as long as you wear the wig, obviously). Synthetic wigs basically have a "memory" of sorts, which means that you don't have to fuss with it to retain the original style, even after washing. For example, if you choose a wavy or curly synthetic hair wig, you don't have to fuss with curling every time - or ever - after washing. Another benefit to synthetic hair wigs is the price. These are much more affordable than a human hair wig. So if price is an issue for you, or you just don't feel like shelling out $500 or more for a wig, synthetic is definitely the way to go for you. One last benefit I'll mention is that I have heard that if you want a short hairstyle, synthetic wigs work much better and require much less fuss and care than a human hair wig.
Downsides to synthetic wigs are pretty simple. You can't use heat styling tools on them, which of course you don't really need, since the style is locked in. Why worry over not being able to use a curling iron when you don't need to? Obviously, you can't change the style or color of a synthetic hair wig but again, as long as you like the look of the wig you purchase, there are no worries! Lastly, if you want a longer hairstyle, synthetic wigs may not work for you as the friction caused by your hair rubbing against the synthetic hair can result in frizz. There are some ways to reduce this, but again, if you like a shoulder-length or shorter hair style, this won't be a concern for you.
