Frequently Asked Questions

Purchasing a wig—whether it's your first or your fifth—is a big decision and we want you to feel as confident as possible with your choice. Read on to learn more about our natural human hair hair wigs and how to pick the right one for you.

What is a "Natural" Wig?

A natural wig is a wig that's made with real human hair. Unlike synthetic wigs, which are made with artificial fibers, natural wigs offer a level of realism and versatility that's unmatched. From their soft, luxurious texture to their natural movement and fluidity, natural wigs are designed to look and feel like your own.

They are, without a doubt, the best way to achieve a realistic wig.

What Kind of Wig Looks Most Natural?

Natural lace front wigs crafted with 100% human hair are the most realistic-looking wigs available.

These pieces are designed with a thin, transparent lace that covers the hairline and blends in with your natural skin tone. This creates the illusion of a flawless, natural hairline—even up close. And a human hair wig offers the ultimate in realism, with each strand moving and flowing just like the real thing.

Always opt for a lace front human hair wig if you can—even better if the hair is 100% European.

How Long Do Natural Wigs Last?

With proper care, a natural wig can last for years. The key is to treat it with the same care and attention that you would your own hair. That means shampooing and conditioning regularly, using only gentle products, and avoiding heat styling whenever possible.

It's also important to store your wig properly when you're not wearing it. The best way to do this is to keep it on a wig stand or mannequin head, covered with a soft cloth. This will help protect it from dust, dirt, and other potential damage.

By following these simple tips, you can extend the life of your wig and enjoy it for years to come.

What are Natural Wigs Made Out Of?

The best natural wigs are made out of real 100% European human hair. And at Daniel Alain, we use the finest 100% European human hair in our wigs as it is the highest quality hair in the world.

Can You Tell if Someone Wears a Wig?

If the wig is made with high-quality human hair and is properly fitted, it’s virtually impossible to tell that someone is wearing a wig. However, synthetic wigs are often much easier to spot as they can look fake or "plastic-y."

Natural wigs, on the other hand, are very lifelike—so much so that even people who you see every day might not be able to tell—they’re that realistic.

Are Human Hair Wigs Better than Synthetic Hair Wigs?

Human hair wigs are more expensive than synthetic wigs, but they're so worth it. The quality is incomparable, and they offer a realistic feel that synthetic wigs simply can't match.

They're also much easier to style than synthetic wigs, as you can curl, straighten, and style them since the hair is real. And because human hair wigs are made with real hair, they can last for years with proper care.

What is the Best Wig Brand?

Daniel Alain uses the finest 100% European human hair in our collection of natural wigs. We believe that our pieces are some of the best on the market, and we're confident that you'll love them too.

Where is the Best Place to Buy a Natural Wig Online?

Virtual wig shopping can be daunting, but Daniel Alain makes it easy. We have a wide selection of natural wigs to choose from, and our expert stylists are always available to help you find the perfect wig for your needs.

What's more, we offer monthly financing options and a free Fit Kit to ensure that your wig is a perfect match.

What are the Different Types of Human Hair Wigs?

Human hair wigs are as diverse as the people who wear them. Each type comes with its own set of benefits and features, so you can choose the wig that's right for you.

Below are just a few of the different types of human hair wigs available.

European Hair

Hard to source and high in demand, European hair has the well-deserved reputation of being the best human hair for wigs. While it can be sourced from any country in Europe, it's typically cut from the ponytails of Russian and Ukrainian women. Finding European hair is a lengthy and costly process, which is why it's often the most expensive type of human hair on the market.

However, European hair wigs are worth the investment as they offer unmatched quality. The hair is thick, lustrous, and naturally blonde, making it perfect for those shopping in the U.S. and the U.K.

Daniel Alain has access to a private reserve of European Hair, which we use to create our ultimate luxury wig, the Grandeur.

Indian Hair

Indian hair is another popular type of human hair used in wigs. Sourced from the Hindu temples of India, Indian hair is often referred to as "temple hair" as it's donated by women who shave their heads as part of a religious practice.

Unlike European hair, Indian hair is more textured and coarse, making it ideal for those with thicker, curlier hair. It's also more affordable than European hair, so it's great if you have a tighter budget.

Asian Hair

Asian hair is an incredibly silky and smooth type of hair, making it perfect for those with fine hair. However, it only comes in black, making it not the best option for those with lighter hair colors.

While it's easy to find Asian hair, buyers need to be wary of low-quality options as many manufacturers will craft wigs out of hair found in drains, on the floor, or in other unsavory places.

Virgin Hair

Virgin hair is hair that has never been dyed, processed, or chemically treated in any way. It's the most natural type of human hair available—and finding it is basically impossible.

Nowadays, it's very rare to find someone who hasn't dyed or processed their hair in some way. Virgin hair is pretty much a thing of the past, so be cautious if you come across anyone selling it.

Remy Hair

Remy hair is a type of human hair that's been carefully sorted and aligned so that all the hair's cuticles face in the same direction. This ensures that the hair doesn't tangle or mat, even after multiple washes.

While Remy hair and virgin hair are often used interchangeably, Remy doesn't mean that hair hasn't been processed. Most hair used in wigs has been processed or exposed to chemicals in some form or another, so it's basically impossible to find Remy hair that's completely unprocessed.
