Rather than worry about it, a number of women have now taken to hair extensions and wigs.

The hair extensions and wigs industry is a billion dollar industry with thousands of people choosing to make a style statement with wigs and extensions.

They could either choose from the Aspen wigs, Beverly Johnson wigs, Estetica wigs, Forever Young wigs, Jon Renau wigs, Modu Wigs and even Vivica Fox wigs.

Wigs as know are primarily made from human hair. Although wigs are also made from hair obtained from animals like Horses, Goats and Yaks, these are mainly used for hair extensions. Needless to say, human hair especially remy hair is the best form of hair. This method ensures that the cuticle is kept intact and is removed from the donor’s head in a certain angle. Thus the wigs look real, are easy to manage and can be styled just like your natural hair. Needless to say these are among the most expensive and ideal for people looking to wear wigs often. Synthetic wigs, albeit a cheaper option, don’t last long enough and are best for people looking to wear them on a temporary basis.

When it comes to human hair, Indian and Chinese are the preferred choice for those looking for jet black hair, while Russian hair is the preferred choice for blonde wigs. Yak hair is the preferred choice for hair extensions although human hair is used for hair extensions as well.

There are a number of online stores that sell these wigs at affordable rates. You could either choose from front lace wigs or weaves. But before you by these wigs and extensions, make sure to buy a wig that’s safe for you. For example, people with dermatitis cannot wear any other wigs, except 100% human hair wigs. When buying hair extensions, make sure that you buy one that matches your hair texture, so that the change isn’t drastic.
