Everything You Need To Know About Synthetic Wigs BY WANNA'S
Human hair or synthetic hair? If your snared while reading the latter, the following blog post may change your mind by the very end. For years I have relied on human hair bundles by the way of AliExpress and co to soothe my beauty appetite but my bank account was hurting financially. As an alternative, I began to research synthetic wigs and I discovered various benefits that come with synthetic styles. While I too held my own judgements against synthetic units, synthetic hair has come a long way from looking overly shiny and cheap. Still not convinced? A lot of beauty influencers and vloggers rely on synthetic hair for an effortless switch up and often post links from independent hair companies and/or Amazon that will give you a sleek, natural look without going broke.

What do I enjoy most about synthetic wigs? The endless options. Instead of committing to paying $400+ on a few human hair bundles, I opt for reliable companies like Bobbi Boss to test a few synthetic styles for a fraction of the price. I personally prefer the infamous Lyna wig and the Yara blunt bob that gives you more for less. Other benefits include: less maintenance, colour selection and the light weight feel on my scalp. While synthetic wigs come with its fair share of cons like being unable to dye the unit or any form of manipulation by heat (straighteners or curlers), it’s still an easy fix for all my girls on a budget. If you’re in the mood for a change and want wigs that look natural, check out the following tutorials below for honest reviews on all things synthetic hair.
