Synthetic hair is much more affordable than real human hair. This is because it’s manmade and easier to find.

Not everything about these wigs is great though, the disadvantages include:

Cannot be styled

Although these wigs are styled already, it’s not possible to style them yourself. You will also be unable to color them yourself as easily as with human hair wigs.

Not as Realistic
