Why Sew-Ins Are Better Than Wigs
The Great Debate Which Side Are You On?
Since the beginning of time, the hair industry has been arguing about which is better: sew-ins or Wigs.
It’s easy to see that both have their benefits and disadvantages. Extensions are a great choice for women who don’t like the idea of having to do their hair every day.
Sew ins are more than just what the eye sees. They keep your hair looking great and can also be used as a protective style to give your hair a break. Although it is not something we like to say, there are some very good reasons why a weave is better than buying wigs. This blog post is for you if you’re still unsure about buying a hairpiece, or you have been considering getting bundles or a sewing machine.
We’ll tell you how much it costs to have your hair extensions installed by a professional, and we’ll also show you whether Sew-ins can help your hair grow as fast as wigs. It will all come down to personal preference and your lifestyle. Who wouldn’t want to instantly change their look without having to cut or grow your hair?
You need to let your hair go and put the pick away. We hope you’ll be convinced by our top 5 reasons sew ins are better than wigs.
Stability and Commitment
You can commit between one and three months to getting a sewn-in before you need to reinstall.
You would need to apply your hair every day with a wig, which can be annoying for busy women. Sometimes, you just want to look good right away.
Sew-ins make a great weekend trip or vacation activity. You can jump in the pool with no worries about your hair falling out. You must feel confident in your hairstyles. It is because they are scared it will fly off in the wind that women have not made the switch from wigs to their hairstyles.
The rumors are not true, as these hairpieces often come with an adjustable strap and combs. It is important to remember that we are more likely not to commit to something we can take off and replace.
Summary: If you don’t care about switching your look up then sewing-ins may be a good choice for you.
We have briefly discussed how much we love secure hairstyles. Now, let’s talk about the second reason people love sew ins more than wigs.
A false sense of security is not something anyone wants in their lives. This is like purchasing an alarm system that doesn’t work or installing cameras inside a store to scare off thieves. Wigs can give you a false sense security. You can have them sewn on by someone, but that is not recommended.
The best thing about purchasing a wig? It’s the flexibility and convenience of being able take them off and on as you please throughout your week and month. Sewing it down will eliminate all of the inconvenience, don’t you think.
I don’t mean to be negative, but I do love wigs because they allow you to change up your look in natural ways. One thing that I hate is when my hairpiece looks a certain way and I have to change it every time.
I am the kind of person who wants my hair to look good every day. Wigs sometimes don’t offer that level of certainty. Sew-ins can be a great option if you like the idea of your hair looking the same every day.
Our sense of security is a benefit. However, sewing those bundles down may be the way to reduce anxiety and stress levels for ladies.
Save Money In the Long Run
You could get hair extensions that will last up to 2 year if you invest in high quality bundles. It is more convenient and cheaper to have a sewn-in.
Wigs are not designed to last long. Even the best quality ones can become brittle over time. A woman can buy about ten hairpieces each year. This is true for the average woman.
I like the flexibility of being able to switch up my look every day, but at what price? Average cost of synthetic pieces ranges from thirty to fifty dollars. Lace front wigs are more expensive, but they can be as low as the hundreds. It is worth investing in something you won’t use and will likely to sell it later on to buy another wig.
You are more adept at caring for bundles than you might think. When it comes time to remove them, we wash them gently and dry them. Then, we put them back in. You can change the color whenever you want and with great quality extensions if you are able to save enough.
There’s no need to spend extra money on wigs of different lengths and colors. You can have the look you want while saving some cash.
Sew-ins can be as easy as wigs, if not better.
We love wigs because they can be worn all day, and taken out at night. In the morning, however, you will need to do it again.
A sew-in allows you to wake up every morning and get on with your day. You don’t have to wake up early to curl your hair or search for the right piece of hairpiece to wear when you want to get out of bed. I know that I feel more organized when I have someone install my hair bundles.
I just need to put on some makeup and I’m ready for any day. You won’t have a bad day with your hair, as long as you don’t forget to do your hair at night. Your extensions will be ready for the morning.
Wigs are more comfortable because they have direct contact with your hair and natural roots. Sew-ins, on the other hand, can provide you with the convenience and security of being able, without the need to curl, straighten or put on a wig, to get up every morning.
We wouldn’t be mad at you if you believe this is enough reason to run out and get some hair extensions!
Amazing Hair Growth
The moment we’ve all been waiting for is now: will your hair grow more in a wig, or a sewn-in?
Of course, there are many things that can trigger hair growth such as a healthy eating pattern, vitamins or genetics. However, a key difference is that a wig allows you to have more access to your hair. You still need to manage your curls.
You want your locks to grow naturally. To do this, wash them every now and again. Now you might be thinking that a wig that is sewn down will decrease the likelihood that your natural hair will get damaged.
These pieces have a problem because the cap covers most of the hair except for a small area of lace. Your braids would be unable to breathe if the cap was sewn to your hair. You don’t want hair loss or breakage if there is not enough air coming to your scalp.
You may have a tendency to put your curls in a low bun, then place a cap on it. This will result in no growth.
Reasons for Growth
The reason Sew-Ins help you hair grow longer are two. One, your natural hair is in braids or cornrows.
Second, your twists under the sew-in are able to breathe because there are gaps and spaces between the hair. It is easy to wash your scalp and treat it while wearing a weave, which contributes to your tremendous growth.
The best thing about having access to your hair is that it grows naturally without the need for extra heat or contact with harsh chemicals. You can hide the dry ends of your hair by hiding it under your weave. This will allow your hair to retain moisture.
The extension sits on the cornrow base so it is like having two protective styles in one. This extension can be used to protect your natural hair against the use of color. Your weave of high quality can withstand many dye jobs, so there are no more poor bleaching methods.
As long as you practice good hair care methods such as shampooing your scalp, and applying oils at your roots every time that you take your sewn-in out, you will experience amazing growth.
What Are Some Reasons That You Like Sew-ins?
Now you know the top five reasons that sew-ins are more popular than wigs.
It all comes down to personal preference. If wigs work better in your busy, fast-paced lifestyle, then go ahead and give them a try. Sew-ins can be used by my women who need a bit more stability in their lives.
Extensions are the best option for those who want their hair to last a long time. Your weave will stay in place so you don’t have to worry about having to re-install it every day. You can keep your hairstyles fresh by purchasing the right bundles.
Do not be lazy and choose a less reliable weave. This could result in a poor sew-in that can damage your hair and make it difficult to buy extensions. Look no further if you are looking for affordable, great-looking hair.
