HH wearer—but SC (synthetic curious)! :)
I can certainly understand why you would be curious about synthetic wigs. I just ordered the Jackson wig last week & am anxiously waiting for it, and it's a synthetic wig. I need another wig like I need a hole in my head, but I'm addicted to them. In fact I've got on one of my very favorite HH wigs right now. And....I'm not even going anywhere!! (LOL) Sometimes I just like to play around & put on one of my wigs because it makes me feel better. Instantly I'm feeling better. I do have hair, but it's very, very baby fine & there is no way my bio hair could look like this wig. This wig is layered & has wave that I love. I love the way it's highlighted. So I would advise you to pick out a synthetic wig you like, but I bet you'll see after a while you will prefer your HH wigs for the reason I mentioned. Synthetic wigs tangle, at least most of them do that are longer. Shorter ones are fine because they aren't rubbing against your clothes to tangle & frizz, but I prefer to wear longer wigs. I've taken a lot of pictures of myself with different lengths of wigs & I look younger & better with longer. I usually wear them at least about 14 to 16" long. It is nice how synthetics stay curled, that doesn't happen with HH, although the wig I have on now does stay curled & has been this way since I bought it. I guess it's because of the layers, or it just really holds a good curl. My bio hair doesn't hold a curl worth a darn. I washed my other HH wig earlier & it dries straight, but I can scrunch it up & have it dry with beach waves. It also curls well. I lay it in a drawer & curl the ends with my hand & lay it against the side of the drawer so it makes it automatically curl under. Let me know what synthetic wig you choose. There are so many to choose from & a lot of really cute styles. We are lucky to live in the day & age we are, because wigs sure look a lot better than what they used to. I've been around people wearing my wigs, even some of my synthetics & people don't even know I'm wearing a wig or a topper. They just say my hair looks nice. I say thank you. I never got compliments like this with my bio hair. Obviously the wigs & hairpieces make me look better, and why would I not want to look better.
