When it comes to wigs, there are more and more different types of hair, including mixed hair. It is often not easy to maintain an overview here. Synthetic hair or human hair is still a term for most, although hardly anyone knows what the actual differences in care, handling, durability, etc. are. Mostly because you have never dealt with hair loss before. For several years there has been another hair fiber that has revolutionized the market: a thermal fiber - and then mixed hair. But what exactly is a thermal fiber wig? Basically it's a synthetic fiber. The big difference, however, is that it is heat-resistant up to approx. 160 ° C. So you can blow-dry your hair replacement, straighten it and style it as you wish! Such an innovative hair fiber for a wig is of course only given to the best hoods (also called mounts). Because not only the type of hair is an important quality criterion, but also the hood.
Why mixed hair and not pure thermal fiber wigs?
Like so many things, there are advantages and disadvantages everywhere. So here too. The thermal fiber cannot be blow-dried as easily as real hair. And that's exactly why the next innovation came: The mixed hair wig made from 50% real Brazilian hair and 50% heat-resistant synthetic hair. Thus, the advantages are immediately obvious: The hair replacement can be blow-dried, styled, does not tangle as easily as pure real hair and is heat-resistant!
Is there also a disadvantage?
A disadvantage that should not be underestimated is the inability to dye the wig. A human hair wig can be dyed to your liking (although you should never lighten it as this would unnecessarily damage the hair fiber).
What does a mixed hair wig cost?
The price is usually a little below that of a transparent lace human hair wig. If you are receiving chemotherapy or are confronted with illness-related hair loss, there is also the possibility of receiving a subsidy from the health insurance company once a year. All you need is a prescription certificate. We would be happy to advise you in the course of our consultation.
