As you know, there are a lot of different lace wigs in the market, and their costs vary. For instance, you may spend £20 getting a synthetic lace front. However, you have to spend as much as £500 or more getting a virgin remy. Do you know the main differences between them?
Synthetic Lace Front Wigs
Synthetic lace front wigs, made of man-made fibers such as Kanekalon, can be extremely realistic. The best ones are very hard to distinguish from a human hair lace wig. It is recommended to choose good quality synthetic because they will last longer, look more realistic, and you will have the ability to style them. If you want to use an iron on them to straighten or curl them, you have to make sure that they are heat resistant and make sure that you don’t set your iron to too high a temperature. Synthetic lace front wigs come in a variety of textures from silky straight, and colors. However, you had better buy the color you want as dyeing them will be problematic. Expect to pay anything from £20 to £100 for them. However, you should know that you get what you pay. If you want one that’s both going to look good and stay the course, you had better invest about £40 – £60.
Human Hair Lace Front Wigs
With human hair lace front wigs, you can style them in the same way that you can style any human hair. Remy human hair lace front wig will be less prone to tangling and will keep their quality for longer. This type of wig comes in many different textures such as silky straight, body wave, yaki straight and kinky straight. You need to pay anything from about £70 for a short version to around £150 for a 20-22 inch version. You normally can find 2-3 inches of lace at the front of wigs. Here, the hair is knotted individually with the back composed of hair on wefts with an adjustable strap at the back for secure fitting.
Human Hair Full Lace Wigs
The lace will expand to accommodate different head sizes and the growth of your natural hair underneath. Human hair full lace wigs have a cap made entirely of lace with usually a strip of stretch lace across the top to make them more ‘one size fits all’. You have to tightly braid your own natural hair underneath to ensure a good fit for all these wigs.
Virgin Human Hair Full Lace Wigs
Virgin human hair full lace wigs are the top of the range lace wigs. They are made for remy hair that has not been treated or dyed in any way, and the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped. They can be dyed successfully because they are made of 100% natural hair. If you are offered a range of colors, then it is likely that they are not virgin because most virgin hair is either an off black or a dark brown color. For these types of full lace wig, expect to pay anything from £200 – £400.
