Quality of your Wig
When it comes to wigs, quality matters. Synthetic fiber is still synthetic fiber, but how it is processed and created can vary; the difference between a $40 costume wig that screams fake and one that looks natural can be based on where your purchase came from. Shop with reputable brands like Ellen Wille, Jon Renau and Raquel Welch for higher-quality wigs at more affordable prices than what you would find in specialty stores. These are well known companies that have been manufacturing wigs and hairpieces for years.
I hope this article has given you some insight on how to remove shine from your wig and that quality does matter when purchasing a wig. If synthetic fiber is still something that can't work with then I would say you may want to go with human hair alternatives instead. Alternative hair becomes a part of you so it's all about feeling confident and comfortable when wearing them!
