Let's Get Started
Are you continuously losing hair?
A Wig is probably what you need.
Reason being that a topper will not cover 100%.
But if you want to wear your own hair as long as you can, a topper may work for the time being.
A Topper is probably what you need.
Reason being you might need specific coverage only.
But you might want to give your hair a break to recover from damage/strain. Then you might want a wig.
Pros. Grab and go, little to no styling needed. You can use synthetic holding spray to add a little more style to it.
Cons. You can't change the style that much, you CANNOT use heat on it and you need to stay away from hot gusts of air, like ovens, to avoid melting your hair.
Heat Defiant Fiber (Heat Friendly)
Pros. You can style this wig with your hair styling tools. It'll stay that shape after you style it.
Cons. Life of wig doesn't last as long as synthetic or human hair, Frizzes easier because of the flexibility of fiber.
Human Hair Fiber
Pros. You can style it how ever you want, It last the longest out of all the other fibers and feels the best.
Cons. You have to manage it more, it acts just like real hair since it is real hair.
A mesh portion that allows you to part your wig/topper to align with your personal part, (left, right, center) it allows you to have more flexibility on styling your hair.
Lace Front Material
Another type of mesh on the front of the wig/topper to make it seem like the hair is coming out of your scalp
Hand Tied Wigs
The hair is individual hand-tied into the cap to give a overall natural look and ability to style in different ways. They are very comfortable to wear.
A mesh material that allows you to part your wig/topper to align with your personal part, it allows you to have more flexibility on styling your hair.
A mesh material that makes the wig fiber look like it's coming out of your head.
The hair is sewn in rows creating wefts, this wig is great for grab and go since the wig stays in the same shape and bounces back after washing it and it breaths very well.
These are not all the different options from every category from fiber, material and cap constructions. These are the most common and most used materials and construction used on wigs and toppers.
