In this article, we will talk about different types of hair wigs and how they are made. You can learn about the materials of hair wigs for your reference so you can make better decisions. There are two major aspects that decide the quality of hair wigs: hair quality and cap construction.
The best quality of hair wigs is Virgin hair. Among all the hair extensions, Peruvian hair is the best followed by Brazilian hair. Some Asian hair like Indian and Malaysian virgin hair can also be of good quality. Accordingly, hair wigs made by virgin hairs are the best ones to buy. Non-virgin remy hair wigs can also be a good choice if you want a cheaper one.
Caps are important for the wigs as well. Wefted wig cap is made by hairs that are woven together with nylon thread. It was weaved tight together by machine most of the time but also can be hand-made. Monofilament is a special part of wefted hair sewn into the front made by workers to make the hair wigs more flexible. Also, there is another section of wefted wig cap called thin skin inserts that can make the scalp look more natural. It is made of silicone and hairs are inserted into it and applied in the front portion of hair wigs. Another type of hair wig is the hand-tied one. It may take a craftsman over a month to apply and knot hair strands to the thin mesh which is functions as a base for the cap.
After the things above are done, hair wigs will be processed as dye, perm or something else to have different styles, which may cater for all needs for all kinds of people.
