As compared to human hair extensions, wigs made of human hair are immensely more flexible and simpler to wear and remove. Clients who want a quick-fix hair style can opt for wigs. Wigs made out of human hair are almost indistinguishable from the natural hair. While natural hair takes ages to grow and a lot of effort to style, and hair extensions need extra care and effort for their application and maintenance, human hair wigs give instant results and require negligible after-care. The price of the wigs is dependent on the quality of the under-lying hair comprising the wigs. The cost varies based on whether the hair used in the wigs is human or synthetic, Virgin or non-Virgin, Remy or non-Remy and also the origin of the hair provided it is human hair. Wigs made of Human hair, Virgin hair and Remy hair are more expensive compared to their counterparts. Further, wigs made from hair of Brazilian or Indian origin are more expensive given the luster and lushness of this kind of hair. Wigs have been in existence for over 2000 years. Till about 100 years back, wigs were pricey and were the exclusive preserve of the rich. But today, competition and advances in the technologies of harvesting hair and making wigs has made wigs more affordable.
