Choices When Buying A Wig To Cover Your Thinning Hair

Posted on: 2 November 2018

If you're struggling with hair loss, you may be self-conscious about your appearance. If you're uncomfortable going in public or going to the workplace with thinning hair, then wearing a wig might be the perfect solution for you. If you've tried a wig in the past and didn't like it, you should try again and try different types of wigs. Wigs are made in different ways so you might find something you like and that feels comfortable to wear. Here are some things to consider as you choose your wig.

Type Of Hair

Wigs come in all hair colors and in various lengths and textures. You can probably find a wig that looks very similar to your natural color and hairstyle. You may want such a wig so people will assume it's your real hair or you may want to take advantage of wearing wigs and try different colors and lengths in the hair. There are two types of hair used to make wigs. You can buy wigs made of real human hair and wigs made of synthetic fibers.

Human hair has a more realistic look but wigs made from them are usually more expensive. Low-price synthetic wigs are available to fit a tight budget, but you can also buy higher-end synthetic wigs that use fibers that look almost as real as human hair. Deciding on the type of hair is a personal decision based on your budget and the quality of wig you desire. Human hair can be styled easily and it is a good choice if you're buying a wig with long hair. Synthetic hair wigs usually don't last as long and these are ideal for short styles.

Choice Of Caps

The wig caps come in different styles too so you can find one that's comfortable for you to wear for several hours a day. A lace front wig has a panel of lace in the front that makes your hairline look more natural. If you pull the hair back, a heavy cap won't show through. Monofilament caps are an option to consider if you like to change your hairstyle. These caps are made of mesh that looks like your scalp so you can part the hair any way you want.

Hand-tied wigs are among the most expensive wigs but they look the most natural when it comes to hair movement. You can buy these wigs with the hair hand-tied just around the hairline or all over the cap. This method of making a wig allows for improved hair movement and allows you to style the wig in different ways.

There are so many choices in wigs that it's easy to get overwhelmed. Start with choosing a wig with the color and hair texture you like. The length is less important since a hair stylist can cut the hair into the shape you want. Set your budget and then buy the highest quality you can afford.


The Power of Color

As a kid, I didn’t think much about the clothes I wore. I was only concerned with how comfortable they were. I often erroneously associated stylish clothing with pain. I didn’t think I could be comfortable in anything the latest runway models were wearing. Besides dressing in clothing that was too large for my body, I typically always chose black items to wear. I mistakenly believed wearing something black would make me look thinner regardless of the style or cut of a piece of clothing. Thankfully, in my adult years, I’ve learned to embrace color. Wearing my favorite colors always brightens my mood and gives me confidence. On this blog, I hope you will learn ways to add vivid, cheerful color to your wardrobe.
