Review On Synthetic Heat Resistant Wig

So six months ago I got my hands on a Synthetic Heat Resistant wig.  It is called many different things by many retailers... but the description is the same. Last two Blog posts on this were called... and the one before that was...
So you might want to read up on them before you read this to get all the details!

Right where was I?  Oh yes so six months later after having this wig and by popular demand I thought I would give you my review on it.
This is the Heat Resistant Synthetic
Wig the day I picked it up.
Now where to start? 
Definitely start with the positives as in my opinion this wig has been really fantastic!

  • Looks and feels like real hair
  • Colour does not fade
  • So quick and easy to look after as you wash leave to dry and it looks great.
  • You can use a hot brush on it to get rid of any frizz to the ends of the hair.
  • It does not get greasy!?
  • It is really light weight
  • I would wash it once a week but you could probably go longer than this! It just does not seem to get dirty!?
  • If it gets wet in the rain it just dries and looks fab.

Now it would not be a real review with some negatives would it!?

  • I found that it tangled easily and did not feel as silky smooth as really good quality human hair.
  • I was told that you could curl it and do all sorts but it really just lay flat as a pancake and I could not get much volume in it.  This was fine for me as that is how I wear it anyway
  • After 6 months I am now having to use a hot brush on it every day to get the fizzes out so i would not say that this hair lasts as long as I thought.  Real hair lasts 2 years.

So in
conclusion you can see the positives out weigh the negatives... I am looking forward to going back to a real hair wig after my 6 month trial but I will miss the time I saved washing/styling the heat resistant synthetic wig.

If you have any questions please fire away!

  1. Hi Everyone,

    After posting this blog i have since been using a real hair wig and immediately you start to realise the true benefits of the heat resistant synthetic wig... As much as real hair is lovely the benefits of the synthetic are pretty good.

    To be honest i don't think i will ever find a wig that is 100% perfect. I will always have a few little things wrong with whatever i choose that get to me...

    I will do another full blog on my real hair soon so i can do an immediate comparison between the 2.

    Stay tuned...
