A huge variety of wigs which are suitable for African American women is available. Real hair or human hair wigs are the top of the line in quality and are also the most expensive. These wigs are often made from hair which comes from China or India. This is thick black hair which is ideal for black women's wigs. It makes wigs which can be styled to any fashion the wearer desires. This is very good quality hair and is used to make either long or short hair wigs.
If you are unsure which length will be most suitable it is best to buy a long wig. If later you decide that you want a shorter style it can be cut to length just like your own hair. Full lace and front lace wigs are very popular. Each hair is tied into the lace base individually which makes it look very natural. The wig also fits the head closely and the hairline is almost invisible. Under the wig a wig cap can be worn and this fits the scalp closely giving a good base for the wig. The wig cap must be the same color as your natural skin so that it will not show through the wig unnaturally.
Full lace wigs are very versatile and can be styled in a number of ways very easily. The hair can hang naturally loose or can be tied back into a bun or ponytail just as your own hair can. For best results the lace wig should be attached to the scalp at the front using wig adhesive. This results in a very natural looking hairline. Other types of African American wigs are available at lower cost but the lace wigs are the very best.
Synthetic hair wigs are considerably less costly than real hair, but do not have the same quality. Synthetic hair these days is much better than it was a few years ago and a really good quality synthetic wig can look very good. However it does not have the feel or qualities of real hair. If your budget will not stretch to buying a real hair wig you should consider a good synthetic. Chosen carefully you can find something that will work very well for you. This is particularly true if you do not intend to wear the wig daily but rather just for an evening out or special occasion.
Synthetic wigs do not last as long as human hair, under continuous use, so you would find it best to get a real hair wig if you want to wear it every day. If you want to be able to change the styling you must only have a human hair wig. Synthetic wigs cannot be restyled successfully since use of hot hair dryers or curling tongs will damage or melt the hair. To summarise the very best choice in wigs is a real hair lace wig. It is relatively expensive but will last for a long time if used with care.
