Choosing a New Human Hair Wig for a New You

Choosing a human hair wig can be an amazing way to instantly change your look. Very different from the stiff, unnatural-looking wigs of the past, today's human hair wigs are extremely realistic, allowing people to change their looks at any time. If you're in the market for a human hair wig, eBay has a huge selection available, and the following tips can help ensure that you make the right choice.

What textures are available for human hair wigs?

Human hair wigs come in a wide variety of textures ranging from wavy to kinky to curly, allowing people to find a hair texture that matches their own. Keep in mind that the same issues that affect certain hair types on human heads will be the same ones that affect them on a wig cap. In other words, a curly-haired wig will become bushy in humidity, while a wig with bone-straight hair can hang limply on hot, moisture-filled days.

Can you style human hair wigs?

Because they’re made out of real hair, good-quality human hair wigs have the ability to be washed, styled, and treated exactly as you would your normal hair. When placing your order, make sure to check that your wig can be treated exactly as you would treat your own hair so that you don't risk damaging it.

Who would benefit from a human hair wig?

Many people would benefit from wearing human hair wigs, including the following:

  • People with hair loss: People with hair loss due to illnesses and medical conditions like cancer or alopecia often gain a lot of confidence from wearing a human hair wig.
  • Theatrical arts performers: Performers on television shows, plays, or musicals wear human hair wigs in order to change their appearance to match that of the character they're portraying or to protect their own hair from too much manipulation.
  • People trying out a new hairstyle: Some people may be interested in trying out a new hairstyle but are afraid of making a mistake, so a human hair wig allows them to try on the look before making the next move.
What types of wigs are available?

There are many different types of human hair wigs available. A monofilament wig creates the impression that natural hair is growing straight from the scalp when the hair is parted. A lace-front wig gives the illusion of a completely natural hairline. A basic-cap wig is the most standard and traditional style of wig, and it's available with capless or traditional construction.
