Synthetic lace wigs are the same as human hair lace wigs but are made from synthetic hair fiber rather than real human hair. Recent advancements in synthetic hair fiber make it very similar to human hair and it can be washed, styled, curled and straightened with a straightening iron. Synthetic lace wigs have a lace front and the back of the wig is made from a stretch cap. The synthetic hair fiber is hand tied one single strand at a time into the lace front, giving the appearance of hair growing directly from the scalp creating a very natural looking hair line.
The main advantage of the synthetic lace wig is the low cost, making it extremely affordable for any budget. It is much cheaper than a full lace wig and you still have a very natural looking front hair line. You can wear your hair in virtually any hairstyle but cannot wear your hair up in a high pony tail. The synthetic lace wig is very comfortable, affordable and natural looking.

Does a Synthetic Lace Wig offer advantages over a Human Hair Lace Wig?
An advantage of synthetic lace wigs over human hair lace wigs is less hair loss or shedding of the hair. Human hair expands and contracts when it becomes wet. Over the course of time, the very fine single and double knotted human hair can loosen and hair loss will occur. Synthetic hair fiber does not contract and expand as much as human hair and therefore the knots stay tighter with less hair loss or shedding. Regardless of the hair type you choose, synthetic lace wigs offer you the same look and craftsmanship of the human hair full lace wigs at a fraction of the cost.

While the front lace requires tape, glue or a bond for security the back cap does not need any additional support.
What are the disadvantages of Synthetic Lace Wigs when compared to Human Hair Lace Wigs?
The disadvantage of purchasing a synthetic lace wig is not being aware of the type of synthetic fiber the manufacturer actually used. In an effort to keep down costs, some manufacturers use less advanced synthetic hair fiber that may not look or feel natural and is subject to damage by heat.
Another disadvantage of wearing a synthetic lace wig is that you cannot bleach the knots of the hair.
