Last Updated: July 22, 2022

I’m Dasia, a licenced cosmetologist. In all of my years in the beauty industry, I’ve found there is a benefit in looking for the best of something. Taking the time to figure out which products are worth purchasing is a time consuming yet rewarding task.

I’ve narrowed down some of the units I have personally tried to get a better understanding of which units it’s best to invest in. This post will explain why these companies’ wigs have made the cut.

Best Human Hair Wigs

Wigs are a hair additive that have gained a lot of popularity in recent years. They are highly desired due to their ease of use. Keeping this in mind, human hair wigs are ideal due to their similarity to most natural hair. They allow for maximum styling options and are long lasting.

  • Best human hair wig overall – Keswigs take the spot for best overall as their unit checks all of the boxes. The hair is easy to use and is made from high-quality material.
  • Best human hair wig for versatility – Diamond Hair Company would be the company that provided the best versatility for a wig. Everything from the strands to the lace was ideal. Although a bit expensive, it is highly worth it.
  • Best human hair wig for value – Queen Hair takes the spot for the best value. They provided a quality wig for just under $100. The hair is not only human hair but also virgin meaning 100% unprocessed.
  • Best human hair wig for high quality – Her Imports provides a high-quality human wig, at an expensive price. That being said, I still found the wig to be with it.
  • Best human hair wig based on reputation – Wiggins Hair is a company that has been around for years, over 20. They provide 100% virgin human hair and have continued to live up to their high standards.
  • Best human hair wig based on ease of use – Alipearl is a brand that provides all you need at a reasonable price with little work to do in return.

1. Keswigs 180% Indian Hair Invisible 13×4 HD Lace Frontal wig

Keswigs is very popular with customers as they offer products that everyone wants. They have on-trend items, classic items, and a variety of different sought-after features.

The brands also ship worldwide which is a benefit as it allows a variety of different people to try their products. While they’re most known for their HD wigs, they have a variety of different products on their site. 

This wig is made from Indian texture hair which accurately highlights the health of real human hair. It is also complemented by the straight texture.

The density is another area that aids in this unit taking the best spot overall. It allows for the hair to look natural and healthy. This makes styling easier as you can have more consistent hair health throughout.

What I Like

  • Density – The hair is thick from root to tip, including the frontal.
  • Frontal size – The frontal goes back 4 inches which allows for added styling.
  • Texture –The Indian texture gives off a healthy look.

What I Don’t Like

  • Shipping –The shipping times of the company could be improved.
  • Price –The prices for most units are quite average and only go up from there.

2. Diamond Hair Company’s Brazilian Straight Lace Wig

Diamond Hair is a company based out of the US and has been around for 10 years. They have had time to perfect their services and ensure they are providing the best quality hair to customers.

The company is more known for their weaves but they also offer wigs as a new addition. One downside to the site would have to be its response to a user. Every time you access the company’s page, you have to reload the screen.

Aside from this subtle inconvenience, the real reason this wig takes the number one spot is the hair quality. The wig is made from 100% virgin human hair and you can instantly tell. The strands are extremely soft and silky.

The color of the strands were also consistent throughout causing the health and texture of the hair to be shown off accurately. The biggest downside to this unit was the price. The shortest length was $300, but you get what you pay for.

What I Like

  • Lace – The lace was slightly darker in color and had a seamless blend.
  • Density – The unit was consistent throughout, even the ends were thick.
  • Strands –Soft and silky, easy to keep looking healthy.

What I Don’t Like

  • Customizations –The only option you could change was the length of the unit
  • Price –The cheapest was $300, Some units went over $500.
  • Texture – The only offered straight and one other curl pattern.

This is a company that has been around for 10 years. They specialize in providing 100% human hair products available in a variety of different grades. They used their site to easily direct customers to areas of interest.

Queen hair offers some of the highest hair grades available. This leads to them offering high quality units and you can instantly tell at first touch. This specific unit came in the grade 10A.

This unit came in the texture of a deep wave. You could tell the high quality because even when combed out, the curls instantly bounced back. You get this high quality unit for just over $100, a great deal for anyone thinking of purchasing.

The one downside to this unit would have to be the lack of customizations available. Keep in mind you are getting this unit for a very cheap price. The basic unit lived up to a high standard all due to the high grade of hair.

4. Her Imports Illusion Lace Front Wig

Her Imports, a company based in the USA that has been around for over 10 years. They are committed to providing quality human hair to their customers. With this in mind, their products come at a high price.

The website wasn’t very unique, but they did highlight all the needed areas to get to know the company better. The company has over 12 physical stores throughout the US that can help the customer figure out the quality.

This specific unit had a body wave that was beautiful at first sight. The strands were extremely soft yet when brushing the unit there was a problem with the hair falling flat. Although this may seem like a big deal, all you would need is some product to fix this.

While the hair is definitely of high quality, I can still understand how the price may pose an issue. If you want to customize and receive the highest add ons, you could increase the overall price by over $500. 

What I Like

  • Customizations – The company provided many options to customize.
  • Cap – The foundation of the unit plays a big part in the longevity.
  • Luster – The hair looked healthy.

What I Don’t Like

  • Price –The price made sense, but the customizations seemed unreasonable.
  • Texture – The hair became less defined after just one comb through.

They interact with customers via other methods such as Instagram, this allows customers to have added confidence in the company. They also proved to have fast customer service response times and quick delivery. 

This specific unit was reasonable in terms of price. The wig was just over $200 for the basic unit, without any customizations. Even the customization prices were reasonable.

The hair had a beautiful texture that can easily be styled. This unit would likely need some product as the ends weren’t as defined as the rest of the unit. Keep in mind this is common with human hair, especially ones that have a curl pattern.

  • Price – The price of the wig was very reasonable.

What to Look for When Buying a Human Hair Wig

Price

The price of a good quality wig can vary depending on where you are shopping. This being the case, it’s important to understand who much you should be paying.

Human hair has become the standard in recent years making it easier to find good quality pieces at a reasonable price. You should expect to pay in the $200 range for a good human wig. Obviously there are always exceptions.

If you are looking into investing in a unit that has a variety of different customizations you are going to pay more. By paying more, you can hope to have the unit last a longer amount of time.

Hair Type

Hair companies often provide their users with Brazilian hair. While this is a great option, there are a variety of different hair types that may better suit you depending on your hair goals. 

You may want a hair type that is similar to your natural hair or one that is easy to handle. All of these are going to decide on the type of hair you invest in. Brazilian hair is not only affordable but matches a lot of people’s preferences. 

Other hair types such as Indian and Malaysian are considered more premium quality hair. They usually last longer and are worth the investment.

Texture

The texture of your desired wig is a good thing to take notice of. This will affect not only the styling but also the longevity of the unit. Especially if you’re paying a lot for a unit, you want to ensure the wig is one that will last.

Straight textures are often easiest to maintain. Body waves leave you with little to no styling needed. Curly is the hardest to maintain. This is very similar to natural hair that grows from your head.

Just like your natural hair, since these units are made from real hair, you will need to take extra care. This includes washing, conditioning, detangling, and applying any leave-in.

FAQ

What is the highest grade of human hair?

The highest grade of human hair is 10A. For many years the highest was 8A. Investing in a unit with a high hair grade will be beneficial as the strands themselves are likely to last. Keep in mind there may be a price difference if you decide to go for a higher grade of hair.

What type of hair is best for human hair wigs?

Virgin hair is the best option when choosing a wig. Virgin hair has never been processed and is generally a lot healthier than any other type of hair. This can lead to an increase of longevity on the wig you are interested in, making the investment worth it.

What type of hair is the most natural?

Human hair wigs are considered to be the most natural. They react just like the hair on your head and are often easier to style. Human hair wigs are generally paired with lace to achieve an even more seamless effect when blending into the scalp.

Closing

Choosing human hair over synthetic is almost always the right choice. Having human hair allows you a variety of different styling options and is likely to hold up a lot longer. 

While it may be a bit more expensive to invest in human hair, you will instantly see the benefits. Ensure to pick the right type of wig for your lifestyle and you surely won’t be disappointed.
