Myth or Fact #4: Wigs are better than weaves
The real truth about this question is that there is really no right or wrong answers. The truth simply comes down to personal preference. Therefore, a wig might be the best option for someone who is looking for something they can take on and off after a long day while a weave might be best for someone who does not wish to do their hair every day.
How to know what's the best option for you? Here are a few questions to ask yourself before making the decision:
Do I want something that can be removed every day? If you answered yes, then a wig will certainly be the best option for you. Wigs are very versatile; therefore, they can be either glued on or can be done using the glue-less method.
How long do I want my hairstyle to last? If you want your hairstyle to be somewhat temporary, about 2 weeks to 4 weeks, then a sew-in might be a good pick. However, if you are looking something that will be styled a certain way and last for a long time, then using your bundles to make a wig would probably be the best fit for you.
What option will cause damage to my natural hair? Damage done to your natural hair is often due to either the installation or removal process of your hairstyle. Therefore, you can select either option without much worry once you ensure that your hair is properly done.
At the end of the day, a wig or weave will often give very similar results and are often very hard to differentiate when installed. Therefore, as mentioned before, choosing between a wig or a weave all comes down to personal choice. Do whatever makes you happy!
