Styling tools – With human hair you can use heat styling tools such as hot curlers, straightening irons, and blow dryers, although stylists recommend using a heat styling product on the hair shaft and the ends to prevent damage or split ends. Remember, as with your natural hair, take a break from the heat when possible and allow your human hair wig to air dry.
Easy to maintain – natural human hair wigs are easy to maintain as once you have washed and styled them you can wear them at least 8 to 10 times before you have to wash them again. In addition, you can use dry shampoo on human hair wigs, and they won’t be damaged by the build-up. Once you decide to wash your wig the natural shampoo will remove any build-up left over from the dry shampoo.
Human hair wigs are by far the best choice, they are natural and lustrous looking and easy to style, besides nothing feels as good as real hair when you touch it!
