Effective for long term hair loss
Human hair wigs can be a significant investment. This is because 100% European real hair is in high demand and reputable, ethical manufacturers can expect to pay 360 wigs a premium for good quality, pristine human hair. However, a good human hair wig can last from 12 to 24 months if properly maintained (synthetic wigs have a shorter shelf life). This means that human hair wigs are ideally suited to those with long term hair loss or loss that affects the entire scalp i.e. alopecia totalis.
Custom-made for a better fit
Unlike ready-to-wear synthetic wigs, real hair varieties can be custom-made to your exact head size. Creating your human hair wig usually begins with a cast being taken of your scalp and head. This is then converted into a bespoke wig base and the hair is added accordingly. The benefit is that your wig is very safe and secure; you are able to lead an active life without worrying that the product might accidentally dislodge. Again, if you are experiencing long term hair loss, a custom-made real hair wig can genuinely help you lead a normal, happy and full life – free from worry and stress of wig security.
Realistic Appearance thanks to special features
Obviously a human hair wig is the closest you can get to your natural hair. As you would expect, 100% real hair wigs respond like your own hair – they absorb moisture; colours can be added or removed (or indeed colours can fade in the sun!). In addition to looking very realistic, many custom-made real hair wigs offer features that ready-to-wear synthetic wigs do not offer. For instance, human hair can be ‘drawn through’. Hair is threaded through two layers of fine, gauze-like base material – which means that there is no visible join between the base and the hair. In other words, hair looks like it’s growing out of a scalp – an incredibly realistic effect. If you’re investing in a human hair wig, look out for other special features like lace fronts (which provide a virtually invisible front hairline) and monofilament tops where hair is individually knotted on top so that it moves more naturally.
Contrary to popular belief, custom-made human hair wigs are not usually supplied in a specially cut style. They are normally supplied ‘uncut’ and the wearer chooses their desired style which should only be cut b
