By offering a range of prices, we strive to make Follea wigs accessible to a wide range of customers while upholding the standards of excellence that have made our brand synonymous with quality. 


Now that we’ve explored the price range and options available, let’s dive deeper into the craftsmanship and materials used in the production of Follea wigs.



Hair quality of Follea wigs


Here at Daniel Alain, we pride ourselves on using only the finest human hair available and exclusively use ponytail hair to create all of our wigs and toppers. By using ponytail hair, we can ensure that the hair retains its cuticles and that each strand flows in a natural, uniform direction. 




Less expensive wigs that don’t guarantee the cuticles are intact will tangle, break, or shed after washing and wearing. Even wigs that may feel smooth and sleek brand new, are likely to have a coarser texture after the first wash, removing the silicone treatment that makes the hair appear deceptively smoother than it actually is. 


To get a better idea of how long our pieces last or how the quality holds up over time, we recommend reading real customer reviews or seeing what people are saying about our wigs online. At Daniel Alain, we are very transparent about our reviews, publishing them under each wig category as well as providing longer articles and reviews from real customers, in our Learning Center. You can also check out our Instagram page for more real experiences.


No matter which collection you choose from, if you purchase a Follea wig, it will be made from ponytail hair that meets the Daniel Alain standard and embodies the epitome of natural beauty and durability, providing a foundation for the longevity of each of our pieces.

World Select Hair

In order to provide a range of options to our customers, we offer several distinct hair types. Our René collection boasts a blend of carefully selected Chinese and Indian hair. This combination allows us to create an affordable option without compromising on quality.

100% European hair



European hair is a rarity in the alternative hair industry, making it a highly coveted choice for people seeking the utmost quality. These days, European hair is extremely scarce and is found in very limited quantities. The cuticles are intact and it has more natural sheen and vibrancy than other hair types. Our Follea human hair wigs and toppers fall into the luxury wig category because they look natural and last for 2 - 4 years with proper care and maintenance.



The Craftsmanship of Follea wigs


While less expensive wigs may be machine-made and mass-produced in unsafe working conditions, each Follea wig or topper is meticulously handcrafted and features the finest Swiss lace cap construction, hidden knot-work for a natural scalp appearance, and a lightweight, breathable design that gives the most natural look and feel. 




Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, combined with an unmatched team of skilled artisans, allows us to create exquisite pieces that look and feel completely natural. The factory is designed with pristine, bright, open working spaces, and highly skilled workers are paid a fair wage to handle every strand of hair with patience and precision to ensure that every step of the manufacturing process is executed with unrivaled skill and commitment. 




At Daniel Alain, every wig and topper is 100% handmade and we hold high standards as each wig and topper undergoes a thorough examination before completion.



Longevity of Follea wigs


Daniel Alain’s commitment to creating a high-quality piece with the highest-quality materials and a meticulous, thorough construction process gives it a longer lifespan, something that sets them apart from less expensive alternatives that may only last for a matter of months. We understand that durability is a key concern for our customers, and we take pride in creating products that are built to withstand the test of time.


The lifespan of a Follea wig is dependent on the care and maintenance it receives. If the piece is well cared for and sent in for conditioning treatments every so often, you will have a high-quality hairpiece for at least two to four years. Some of our customers have reported their wigs lasting as long as five years with excellent care. 




We recommend washing your Follea wig every 7 - 10 daily wears and using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner. If you plan on styling your Follea piece with hot tools, we suggest keeping the heat setting to medium or below 350 degrees, and always using a high-heat protectant.



Personal experience wearing Follea wigs


Through our interactions with our customers, we know that wearing a high-quality wig goes beyond enhancing their physical appearance. It often has a profound impact on their confidence and self-esteem. The ability to confidently embrace a natural and flawless head of hair can truly be transformative.


Countless individuals who have experienced bald patches or a thinning crown have found Follea wigs by Daniel Alain to be a guaranteed, instant solution to their hair loss. 


One customer, Jenn, expressed how wearing a Follea changed her life. After experiencing hair loss related to androgenetic alopecia, Jenn felt self-conscious and struggled with her self-esteem. However, when she first tried on her Follea wig, she immediately felt something shift within herself. 




“The first time I tried [my wig] on, I cried. I never imagined that I would look in the mirror and see what looked like real beautiful hair coming out of my head. It was a crazy moment. And so emotional,” Jenn explains.


Jenn’s wig provided her with a natural-looking head of hair that moved and felt just like her own. Jenn regained her sense of identity, and her newfound confidence enabled her to embrace every aspect of her life.


Another customer, Kelly, had a large bald spot on the top of her head caused by radiation therapy used to treat squamous cell carcinoma. She has been wearing one of our toppers for 11 years and loves the natural look, volume, and coverage she longed for.


“It’s very difficult to lose your hair. I looked so different, and I didn’t feel like myself. As a woman, I didn’t feel like I could walk around with a bald spot on the top of my head,” Kelly explains. “The hair quality of my Follea topper by Daniel Alain is incredible. It’s so natural and moves so wonderfully. It’s just like my real hair, only better!”
