    WEAR WIGS? ... WHY YES!

    Recently in an interview I was asked if I wear wigs all the time. I don’t. As a matter of fact, I haven’t worn one in more than five years. And before then, I just did it for fun or on rare occasions even though I’ve worn extensions and hairpieces to give my natural hair a little boost. At that moment I realized I didn't know exactly what my clients go through living with wigs on a day-to-day basis. I’ve always been convicted and passionate about helping my clients and giving them the information and education they need to have a great experience with wigs. That’s what really prompted me to start on my 30-day journey. I want to know the benefits and struggles they go through and how it affects them emotionally on a daily basis. I didn’t have the answers yet, but I was ready to find out. Come with me as I take you through my wig experience.

     

    Day 1

    Today marks the beginning of my 30-day journey and all I can say is 'so far, so good'. I decided to go with a wig I tried on about a year ago, which was in my closet. It’s synthetic, so it kept the style pretty well in the bag. And I didn't have to do too much except shake it out and put it on. Guess what? I'm a redhead right now! It's funny how color can change your mood (I feel a little sassy). No wig cap because I don't have one at the house. But I used a ton of bobby pins! Throughout the day I felt a little self-conscious, like I had to explain that I have a wig on. But the truth is it actually looks better than my hair does most days. And by the end of the day, my hair looked just as good as when I started this morning!

    Day 5

    On the fifth day, I went blonde. My hair is naturally light brown. Well, actually, it's naturally dark brown. But I've been dying for about five years to a lighter brown. Seriously though, blondes most definitely have more fun! I went with a shorter blonde wig with dark roots because I felt it looks more natural. But, I kinda feel like I look totally unnatural. I’m sure it’s just because I'm not used to seeing this. But everybody seems to love this one. It makes me feel like I look younger.

     

    Day 7

    OK… Verdict is in. It’s day seven and blondes definitely have more fun! This week’s wig is really great, but it's a little on the pricey side because it's human hair. The only disadvantage is that I do have to style it. (I confess, I had help styling this one.) It feels amazing. It’s so weird because I still feel like me but every once in a while I catch a glimpse in the window or mirror and it's so shocking how different I look. I really like it, though. I never thought I would like a shorter wig like this chin length bob I’m wearing.

     

    Day 9

    It’s day nine now and I’m realizing how much the people you know and see on a daily basis really aren’t paying that much attention to how you look. People at my kids’ school and at the office either don't notice a thing or they don't want to mention it. It seems people don't care as much as I thought they would. By now the self-consciousness about having a wig on is completely gone! It's starting to feel normal.

    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!
