What is a Monofilament Wig?
Just what is a monofilament wig?. Monofilament refers to the type of material that hair strands are sewn onto. Unlike a cloth material, which can be itchy to those with sensitive scalps, monofilament material is a thin gauze-like, nearly transparent material which is much more comfortable to the touch. Hair strands are attached by hand-knotting them to this material, one strand at a time, hence the term "mono-filament".
This allows the strands to swivel freely on base and so the monofilament wig is more easily styled. This weaving technique also creates ventilation. Your monofilament wig will breathe while worn, and this prevents heat and moisture build-up.
The monofilament fabric itself is nearly transparent, and so takes on the approximate colour of your own natural scalp, whatever shade that is. This amazing "chameleon effect” is another plus to the monofilament wig design. It has been said that a monofilament part is the most natural looking part in the wig industry, because it bares the natural scalp colour of the wearer.
Today's monofilament wigs are not 100% monofilament, but have a section in the back which is more traditional in construction. This allows you to adjust the size of your fit to perfection. You may even wish to adjust the fit during the course of an evening's wear, and this is of course, quite easy to do. Tape tabs are included with all mono wigs, and these may be used or ignored, depending on your situation or preference.
