"I have worked in hair replacement for over 25 years, if you had asked me five years ago which type of hair I would wear if I had hair loss it would have been human hair, but these days I would probably sway towards synthetic." – Linda Heeley, Director.
The advantages of synthetic wigs and hair pieces is that the style is already produced for you in production and can be trimmed as required. It does not fade as quickly as Human Hair and when washed in luke-warm water, it can be left to dry naturally, and the shape will fall back into place. Synthetic wigs can be taken on and off easily. If you have limited movement in your arms for example, after a Mastectomy, then a synthetic wig can be more manageable. However, if you like more shaping, styling/straightening then Human Hair is a better option for you.
Most synthetic wigs are elasticated to hold onto your head and often have adjusters at the back to tighten if desired. They offer a very good range of hair colours, often quite vibrant as they are not bleached like human hair. The life span of synthetic hair is 3 to 6 months and at Pink, we also offer a steaming service to maintain the look of your hair and reduce static build up. Full maintenance will be provided for you to look after your synthetic hair at home.
At Pink, we understand ladies sometimes need a Wig quickly and we hold a large range of colours, shapes and sizes to accommodate their needs.
