As a kind of accessories, in addition to being a fashion accessory for ordinary people, wigs can also be used for hair loss patients or people with thin hair for cosmetic treatment.
What types and materials are there in wigs?
- Wigs and wigs
A wig is a wig that is worn on the entire head. It is easy to wear, firm, and covers a large area. It is suitable for people with large areas of hair loss. The disadvantage is poor ventilation.
The wig pieces can be customized into different shapes and sizes according to different needs, and can be fixed on the surrounding hair with clips, or directly adhered to the scalp in the bald area with self-adhesive.
Suitable for patients with small areas of baldness. Compared with wigs, the hair piece has good air permeability and is more natural.
- Artificial hair and human hair
Wigs are divided into artificial hair and human hair according to the material of the hair.
Artificial hair is made of chemical fibers, which has poor fidelity, and chemical fiber materials can easily irritate the skin and cause itching. The advantage is that the price is cheap and the styling effect is long-lasting.
Human hair is made of processed human hair. It has high fidelity and can be baked, dyed, permed, and easy to change hairstyles. The price is high, and the styling effect is not very good.
You can choose according to your economic ability, frequency of use, and occasion of use.
- Machine-woven and hand-woven
Woven hair is produced by machine, suitable for mass production, low price, but relatively heavy and poor air permeability.
Hand-woven hair is made of pure hand-woven technology, using artificial scalp, high fidelity, good air permeability, comfortable to wear, but expensive.
What should you pay attention to when choosing a wig?
Choose the appropriate size. You should choose a wig of the right size according to your own head circumference and the shape of your skull. Especially for patients with total baldness (all hair falls out), a wig of a moderate size and attached to the head shape is more natural and stable to wear. The bottom embryo of the wig should choose a light and thin fabric with good air permeability and non-smooth as far as possible.
When choosing a wig, pay attention to the color of the wig that is similar to your own hair color.
The fixing method should be appropriate. Adhesives should be avoided if there is local inflammation on the scalp. Clips should be avoided if the bald area is expanding and the fringe hairs tend to fall out.
Wigs require regular maintenance. Whether it is artificial hair or real hair, it will be contaminated with dirt and wear off after wearing it for a long time, so it needs to be washed, moisturized and re-haired regularly.
When the scalp suffers from dermatitis, eczema and other skin diseases, you should avoid wearing wigs, otherwise it may aggravate the condition.
