When shopping for a wig, you have probably seen monofilament wigs among your choices. Most people don't know what this wig feature means exactly. It usually is found on higher quality wigs so we all know it is a good thing. So you know by the price that it must be an upgrade feature...but do you know exactly what it is?
Because of this time intensive process…Mono-filament wigs are considered to be a high quality wig product and are more expensive than a standard wefted cap but the benefit of wearing a wig that few will note as a wig is well worth it!
Hand Tied Monofilament Wigs
Another benefit of a mono-filament wig is that the hand-knotting makes the wig more durable and less likely to break off or slide out from the wig… that is if you treat it right! Keep in mind, the sheer material is designed to be fine and give a natural appearance but is not as sturdy as the rest of the wig so treat it gently.
Monofilament is a great advantage for a more natural part, and for allowing you the versatility to change your part and style around at will. But as you now know... the process of making a monofilament wig does increase the price. Did you know it takes up to 40 hours to make one monofilament hand tied cap?! Anything that labor intensive should be appreciated. So make sure to only get what you need in order to make the most of your investment.
If you only need the part to look realistic and are happy where the part is placed...then a monofilament part is for you! If you are going for a shorter style that only shows the crown of the style...a monofilament crown may be all you need. But if you want a wig that gives you total freedom to change the part around... is less dense all over for a more natural look and gives you a natural looking scalp no matter where you part your wig... you definitely need to go for a full monofilament top.
So now you know how a monofilament is made and why it is so much better for achieving the most natural look with wigs. There is nothing better than feeling confident in your style!
