Should I get a wig or bundles for a sew-in? This is one of our Frequently Asked Questions...... we decided to do this blog because the answer is simple but there's so much to elaborate on. If your thinking of purchasing your first custom-made wig or investing in some bundles then this blog is going to be especially helpful for you.
Think of it like this with a wig you have no commitment and with a sew-in, you have a commitment of anywhere between 30-90 days. That's the first thing to ask your self before you get a sew in...... can I commit to this style? If you like to change colors, styles, lengths, and textures then investing in a wig could be great for you. Let's not get it twisted here you can actually change colors, styles , textures, and lengths with a sew-in too but it's not the same thing.
Let’s talking about hair weaving first:
What are the pros of wearing a weave?
You can change your style instantly, without cutting your hair or growing it out. Weaves also protect your natural hair, giving it a break from the heat. Plus, they’re great if you workout a lot.
Many women said that they prefer wigs but are starting to like weaves. A weave can consist of a few tracks, or the whole head can be braided(what we call weaving or cornrows) for a full head weave. With a full head weave, the braids are sewn down or covered with a net. Extensions are then sewn to the braids.There are many options within.
What are the cons of wearing a weave?
Three things: Improper application (like braiding hair too tight) can lead to hair loss; they can be costly to install and maintain; and if you use inferior hair, it can tangle, shed, or look unnatural.
However, others cast their vote-hands down-for WIGS!Reasons why:
Infinite style options and looks; Remy human hair wigs are far more versatile. Now granted, if you have the minutes or the hours available to flat iron, curl, and style your weave you can get a LOT of different looks out of them.
Lower price than getting a weave installed; If you wash and style a wig according to directions, they last a really long time, even the low-quality ones.Speaking of patting your weave, they itch terribly.
You can maintain your natural hair underneath and allow your scalp to breathe.They can deal with the long-term commitment of a weave! Also, they’re easy to care for and maintain.
You have to re-install it daily;
It’s not as secure because it isn’t sewn on.
Verdict: Wigs are great if you like to switch up your look OFTEN. They are inexpensive, they can be easily blended with your own hair if you find one that matches your hair well (or get one custom made) and they allow you to maintain your natural hair because you can take them on and off at any time.
Best for seasonal hair changes, long-term protective styling, giving natural hair a break.
