    What are monofilament wigs? We get that question from new customers a lot. The term itself requires some explanation, but more importantly, the main advantage to a monofilament wig is the natural appearance it provides. The Wig Experts will break down the details for you. Keep reading or watch the video below.

    Among the various wig options available on the market, monofilament wigs are distinct due to their unique traits and benefits. Mono-Part, Mono-Top and Mono-Crown all refer to types of monofilament wig cap constructions. Whether you’ve experienced complete or partial hair loss, these wigs are considered the best choice due to their light weight, comfort and styling options. This is extremely important if your hair loss is caused by medical illness and your scalp is more sensitive to weight and temperature. Women with these concerns find the monofilament construction and quality in these wigs the ideal solution.

    The biggest misconception about monofilament is that it only identifies the way the cap is constructed.  Actually, monofilament refers to the materials from which it’s made. The monofilament materials are available in French or Swiss lace and come in wide ranges of texture, referring to either fine monofilament or welded monofilament. The construction of a monofilament wig consists of a thin mesh nylon fabric that resembles a natural scalp. This fine material is exceptionally preferable because it allows proper ventilation, leaving less heat trapped underneath the wig, reducing friction on the scalp. The manufacturer ultimately decides on the type of monofilament material to be used based on durability and preference. Many wig caps offer a combination of monofilament and other materials to enhance the overall product features.

    Monofilament construction is the most natural because the hair, either individually or in a tiny bundle of just a few, is usually always hand sewn in to the thin nylon fabric.  Each hair therefore, comes directly up out of the sheer nylon instead of laying flat as you see in non monofilament wigs.  This makes it look like the hair in the wig is actually growing right out of your own scalp! These wigs give the illusion of natural hair growth since the sheerness of the fabric at the scalp blends in with the actual color of your complexion. For that reason, this construction makes the wig virtually undetectable. The monofilament construction ensures that even if the wig hair is styled and parted in a different direction, the wig’s construction will not be revealed. Combining the thinness of the fabric and the sheer color will make you forget you are wearing a wig at all!

    Because the monofilament construction gives the appearance of natural hair growth from the scalp, many refer to monofilament wigs as “skin wigs”. There are basically two different methods of monofilament construction, hand-tied and machine-sewn.  More than 95%  of monofilament wigs are hand-tied.  Machine made monofilament wigs are generally found in the African American wigs.  In a hand-tied construction, each hair is individually sewn onto an area of the wig cap’s base, depending where the appearance of natural growth is needed. Another advantage of hand-tying each hair is that it tightly secures the hair strands to the material, reducing the amount of shedding. This technique gives the most realistic looking wig styles because it allows the movement of the hair to begin at the scalp. Machine-sewn monofilament wigs have the same benefits as a hand-tied, but instead of single hairs, small groups of hair are tied together. This reduces the amount of movement achieved by a hand-tied wig, but will also make the wig less expensive to create.

    Monofilament wigs are in high demand, which in turn makes them readily available from most of our top brands in all the latest and most desired hair styles. The wide variety of styles available expand from short to long, straight to wavy or curly, and more. You are sure to find your favorite color and style among the many monofilament wigs available at Wigs.com!
