Wigs are divided into wig sets and wig pieces. 

    The wig cover is a wig worn on the head. It is easy to wear, firm and covers a large area. It is suitable for people with large area of hair loss. The disadvantage is poor air permeability.

    Wig pieces can be customized into different shapes and sizes according to different needs, and can be fixed on the surrounding hair with clips, or directly adhered to the scalp of bald area with self-adhesive. It is suitable for people with local baldness. Compared with the wig cover, the hair piece has good air permeability and is more natural.

Texture of material:

Wigs are divided into artificial chemical fiber and human hair according to the material of hair.

Man made chemical fiber

Artificial chemical fiber refers to the chemical fiber silk collectively referred to in the wig industry, which refers to the chemical fiber material synthesized by the chemical "drawing" or "blowing" process. It is similar to the wig silk of human hair, and is a supplement to the raw materials of human hair. The more famous ones are Kanekalon and toyokalon in Japan. PP material (also known as P material, i.e. polypropylene fiber) was the cheapest one used more in the early stage.

Synthetic filaments mainly include: Normal temperature filaments, high temperature filaments, protein filaments and other common categories; It can be subdivided into domestic silk, Japanese silk, Korean silk and so on according to its different origins; According to the different degree of reflection, it can also be divided into ordinary silk and matte silk.

Normal temperature silk: Normal temperature silk is generally used as a filling material in human hair products, which can effectively reduce the cost of human hair products. But the disadvantages are also obvious: it is easy to deform, difficult to take care of, not resistant to high temperature, and belongs to inflammables. However, wigs made of pure normal temperature silk are also available on the market. Because of their low price, they were also popular in the early days, but the shortcomings of products made of normal temperature silk are also obvious: poor fidelity, which is not conducive to care and preservation; They are basically disposable products, so they have been phased out in recent years.

High temperature wire: Compared with normal temperature wire, high temperature wire has a great improvement in high temperature resistance. Theoretically, it will not deform high temperature wire if it does not exceed 160 ℃ (in practical application, according to the different manufacturing process of high temperature wire, the theoretical high temperature resistance temperature is between 100 ℃ ~160 ℃). Under the control of temperature, it can be ironed, easy to take care of and save, and the fidelity is also greatly improved compared with normal temperature silk. Therefore, in recent years, many wig products on the market are made of high-temperature Silk raw materials (materials). Of course, the price is higher than that of normal temperature silk.

Protein silk: With the development of wig industry, customers have higher and higher requirements for products, and low-end products can no longer meet the needs of customers, so there is protein silk, a higher quality raw material. Compared with normal temperature silk and high temperature silk, protein silk has achieved a further degree of fidelity. It is a raw material that is closest to human hair in hand feel and fidelity so far, and is often used in the production of high-end wigs. So the price will be more expensive than the first two.

In the continuous development process of synthetic filaments, an upgraded product different from ordinary filaments has been derived: flame-retardant filaments. The difference between flame-retardant filaments and ordinary filaments is that ordinary chemical filaments are easy to burn and become lumpy after ignition, while flame-retardant filaments are not easy to burn and become powdery after ignition, which reduces the use risk, but because of its high cost, it has not been widely used.

Human hair

According to different regions, human hair can be mainly divided into: Chinese hair, Indian hair, Brazilian hair, Myanmar hair, Vietnamese hair, Mongolian hair, etc. Because of its material, it can be ironed and dyed, which is easy to preserve, but the production of human hair is limited, and the price of human hair products is slightly more expensive.

The main difference between human hair in various regions lies in the quality and curvature of hair. Chinese hair, Mongolian hair, Myanmar hair and Vietnamese hair are all Asian hair, with thick and straight hair. Among them, Chinese hair is the best, while Chinese hair feels smooth and the price is the most expensive. Brazilian Hair and Indian hair are soft in hair quality and slightly curved. They are suitable for European and American Hairstyles and are mostly used for hair reception, of which Brazilian hair is the best.
