Why Does Hair on an Unprocessed Hair Wig Last Longer Than Hair on a Processed Hair Wig?

When you start your journey into investing in a wig or hair piece, it is important to make sure you take on all of the new vocabulary that comes with it, as this is the only way to ensure you get the perfect hair piece for you.

Obviously you want your new wig to last longer than five minutes, so when it comes to choosing between unprocessed hair or processed hair you should look at all of the information for both types.

A processed hair wig defines wigs or hair pieces that have been subject to chemical treatment in order to make them appear more desirable. Obviously this means that processed hair is available in a much larger variety of colours than unprocessed hair – but sometimes processed hair wigs aren't the best idea if you are looking for a hair piece to last longer than a couple of months.

Unprocessed hair wigs are the opposite, and their cuticles are still fully intact as they haven't been submerged in acid to strip the fibres of their characteristics in the hope of them looking more appealing on the shelf.

It is for this reason that unprocessed hair lasts substantially longer than processed hair. The treatment that the hair experiences when being stripped of its cuticles can have a serious impact on the longevity of the resultant piece.

While you may spend longer finding the perfect piece for your if you are restricting your search strictly to unprocessed hair, the subsequent reward of your natural, virgin hair piece is worth it.

Not only does an unprocessed hair piece last longer than one using processed hair, but it also appears more natural. The hair is still perfectly in tact and can be combined with heat styling tools such as straighteners or curling irons, allowing for more styling options too.
