What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Using a French Lace Wig?
A French lace wig uses a base that is very thick and strong, and it comes with both advantages and disadvantages. While a French lace wig is usually thicker than alternatives such as Swiss lace, it can be preferred.
One of the advantages of a French lace wig is rooted in its thickness. Having a base that is stronger than usual is beneficial for first time wig wearers as those who are less familiar with the application of a hair piece don't have to worry about damaging it when putting it on or taking it off – a French lace wig won't tear or break easily – so for those who are wary of their hair piece this is one of the best advantages.
Hair is attached to a French lace wig using bleached knots. While the knots aren't hidden by the lace, another of the advantages of such an attachment method means that the piece gives the illusion of hair growing directly out of the scalp, giving optimal movement and styling options for the wearer.
While the advantages of a French lace wig are strong, there are also some disadvantages. One of the main disadvantages of such a piece is that while it is mostly undetectable, the base is thicker so it does run the risk of being more noticeable than alternative forms of hair piece. This is the largest of the disadvantages of French lace wigs, so for those who are purchasing this particular type of hair piece it may be worth looking in to just how noticeable the lace is.
