Why Braided Wigs are the Best Option? Astonishing Difference Between Braided Wigs and Natural Hair Braids

Braided wigs have been on trend for almost a decade now. It became such a hit among ladies around the world. But why? Well, we can’t argue with the convenience it offers, it’s durability - can be worn for years, as well as the cost saving and time efficiency factors. These characteristics triumphs over getting your natural hair braided.

If you’ve ever had your hair braided by a stylist, you would know it takes around 3-7 hours to make depending on style. This typically cost within the range of $150 - $600, also depending on style, length, density and thickness of the braids. Bear in mind that these braids can only be worn for about eight weeks if properly maintained, much less with little to no maintenance as braids begin to look frizzy, hair undergrowth sprout up and braids at the edges begin to lift or pull out, then you know it is time to take them out.  

However, with a braided wig, only a few minutes is spent on installation and requires no stylist expertise except personally desired. This saves you hours in salon and possibly discomfort that comes with hair braiding. The cost of a customised braid wig is around $120 - $400, which is significantly cheaper to getting your hair braided. This not only save you money, it makes your money work for you because of the years worth of use that would be gotten out of it.

Another big advantage to braided wig is the luxury of having the complete look of a braided hair whenever needed and can be removed at the end of the day for a good night rest. This factor is the real deal for most people because it gives total freedom to switch up styles as desired instead of being tired down to one look for weeks and also the ease and convenience of sleeping light headed. Additionally, your hair and edges stay nice, intact and protected under a braided wig compared to the tugs and pulls ordeals your natural hair go through in the name of braiding your hair.

One of the beauty of braids is the defined lines it creates, especially with box braids. Admittedly, these lines do looks beautiful on natural hair but as time passes, with hair undergrowth these lines fade and looks rough on the scalp. Braided wigs however, the defined lines stays intact, no hair undergrowth, no braid lifting or drop off. This makes it looks like you've just braided your hair each time you put on your braid wig.
