Sew-in wigs vs. wigs? Which one is better?
This age-old debate still makes us scratch our heads. But most women are convinced that sew-in options are better than regular wigs because of their longevity, stability and convenience.
Others chalk it all down to preference.
No matter which side you’re on in this argument, one can’t deny all the wonderful benefits of a sew-in wig.
Let’s have a look at some of the reasons why women choose sew-in wigs:
1. They’re Highly Convenient
Sew-ins might take some hours to install. But that wait is worth it in the end. That’s because sew-ins don’t require early morning styling sessions.
For starters, they ensure that your hairstyle is pretty much put-together for the long run. Plus, you don’t have to worry about searching for the wig or bothering with adjustments.
So ultimately, they save more time than other faux locks!
2. They’re Super Secure
The other plus point about sew-ins is that they are stable. The sewed wig won’t budge from your head no matter what. So you don’t have to worry about the wind blowing off your cover. You can dip in the pool, go on long trips or party the night away without a care in the world.
They offer full-time wig security for everyday use.
It’s a win-win situation for women that struggle to adjust their wigs.
3. They Boost Hair Growth
Rumor has it that sew-in wigs are great for hair growth.
How? Now, we don’t deny the fact that your genes, eating habits and environmental conditions influence your hair growth. But sometimes all your natural hair needs is a hands-free environment that lets it grow without interruption.
This is where sew-in wigs come in.
Here is why:
- They let your natural hair breather between gaps
- The protective styles like cornrows and braids prevent breakage
- The weaves cover your real hair from sun damage and chemical exposure
All in all, your hair gets enough room to grow out into long beautiful tresses.
4. They Look Natural
Faux locks are pretty popular these days. So no one bats an eye when they find out that you’re donning a wig or some extensions. But you still want to maintain the deception of keeping things all natural. Aren’t we right?
One of the biggest benefits of sew-in wigs is that it lets your natural hair blend with the hair bundles. This helps create the illusion of natural hair. Plus, with the right hairstylist, you can reap in the styling advantages of sew-ins.
- Getting the human hair sew-ins dyed
- Giving your sew-ins an edgy cut
- Switching things up during reinstallations
On the whole, high-quality sew-ins is considered as a better investment than other hairpieces. They last longer, maintain their shape, stay glossier and are pretty convenient for daily use. The only problem is that they can’t be taken off.
Plus they do limit your styling options in various cases. But when you weigh in the pros and cons, sew-ins do seem better.
