Monofilament Wigs

Monofilament wigs enjoy several distinct advantages over cloth-based wigs, the most obvious of which is comfort. Where cloth wigs can be itchy and irritating, monofilament wigs are much gauzier, better ventilated, and almost unnoticeable on the scalp. As such, they can cost significantly more money.

One misconception about monofilament wigs is that they're made of synthetic hair, which is not as natural as human hair. In truth, these are two totally separate issues. The base material and the hair are mutually exclusive. It's possible to have human hair wigs with cloth linings, just as it's feasible to have synthetic hair wigs attached to monofilament (or mono) tops.

Another area in which monofilament wigs stand out is styling. Because each strand of hair is individually knotted to its underlying material, it's able to move up and down along its base. The effect is a hairstyle that is much more manageable, whether you're running a comb or brush through it or simply tweaking it with your fingers.

Monofilament hairpieces also offer superior adjustability. With twin tabs usually located in the back of the wig, it's easy to tighten or loosen your 'do as you see fit. Traditionally, monofilament wigs are the first choice of those suffering total hair loss. If you still have a touch of your original fur, there are supplements that can help you achieve the same fullness but at a far lower cost.
