Can You Style Synthetic Wigs?
Are you considering which type of wig is best for you? The main types of wigs on the market are human hair, synthetic, and a blend of the two. Many clients prefer synthetic wigs for their affordable price and easy care. Today we will go over one of the most common synthetic questions, along with a few other helpful bits of information about your synthetic wig!
Certain types of synthetic wigs are known as heat friendly or heat resistant. These types of wigs can be styled with heat, but only to a certain extent. Be sure to follow the guidelines included with your specific wig.
Synthetic wigs that aren’t heat friendly or heat resistant should NEVER be styled with heat. Using any level of heat on these wigs will destroy them. Even the heat from a steaming pot or opening the oven can ruin this type of synthetic.
As with your bio hair, it is always best to use heat sparingly, regardless of heat resistance. With that in mind, here are some great ways to style a synthetic wig without heat, as well as some care tips. Sometimes something as simple as sweeping the bangs to the side can give a fresh new appearance to your favorite synthetic wig.
Fill a spray bottle with water to revitalize frayed hairs, and to reduce frizz. Sounds counterintuitive, but synthetic hair responds wonderfully to water, which helps it spring back to its original style.
Using a synthetic safe hair spray, you can sculpt your wig into a tousled or textured look, great for creating a beach wave aesthetic.
