What's the difference between wigs and weaves?

    Nowadays, people are facing too many choices of hair extensions. With no idea for which one to choose, wigs and weaves? This is a matter of preference and conditions. Wigs and weaves are similar, but they have their feature and serve different purposes. Therefore, we need to learn the difference between them before purchasing to determine which one best meets our needs.

What's the difference between wigs and weaves

About wig

    A wig is a head or hair accessory made from human hair or synthetic fiber. It consists of a wig cap with hair attached. In short, a wig is like a hat made from hair, so we can put it on and take it off quickly.

About weave

    A weave is braided hair sewn down with the hair weft extensions sewn onto the braids. We need to sew the hair weaves into a wig before we put it on. And usually, we will use the weave with a lace closure or a lace frontal to get a more natural look. 

The difference between wigs and weaves

    Wig and weaves are different in many ways. First of all, the wig was already made by the factory. Then, it's ready to wear. When we get the wig, what we need to do is customizing it a little bit to make it look more natural. But the hair weaves are often sold in bundles, so we need to spend time sewing in. This is a task that requires technical skills and usually needs to be completed by a hairstylist.

Which one is best?

    As we have said, wigs or weaves, which one chose, are a matter of preference and conditions. But to be honest, we would much recommend to chose a wig. The reasons are as follows.

    First of all, it's a whole three-step process to sew in the hair weaves, and it takes a lot of days. Young girls constantly change their hairstyle frequently. So we don't have to go through three hours of having to get the hair done.

    Second, it's much easier to wear a wig. No matter is a headband wig or a lace closure wig. We can quickly put it on and take it off. So we can go out within any minutes, and we can take it off before sleeping. So we don't need to worry about the mess up the hair when sleeping.

    Third, the lace wig is much breathable, so it will make you feel more comfortable and keep you cool in the hot summer. 

    Forth, we can change our hairstyle as much as we want with a lace closure wig. But if we chose the weave, we will be stuck with the style.
