Wigs vs. Sew-ins: How to Choose Which is Right for You

Wigs vs. Sew-ins: How to Choose Which is Right for You

Protecting your hair is an essential part of any hair care routine. Wearing protective styles, like wigs and sew-ins, are a great way to ensure that your hair stays healthy and strong. The goal of wearing a protective style is to safeguard your hair from any damage caused by regular styling, reduce breakage, and also help with length retention. 

In this article, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of wearing both wigs and sew-ins as well as tips on how to choose which one is right for you. 

Pros and Cons of Wearing Wigs

Over the last few years, wigs have become are an extremely popular protective hairstyle amongst women of color. However, before deciding to commit to wearing a wig, it’s important to analyze the pros and cons of using wigs as a protective style.

So, what exactly should you consider when deciding if wigs are the right protective style for you?

Pros of Wearing Wigs

Firstly, wigs completely cover and protect your natural hair from any harmful effects from the environment, like sun and wind damage for example. It also covers up any existing damage to the hair, to prevent the hair from being damaged further.

Also, wigs are extremely versatile. It’s easy to change the length, style, or color of your hair by simply changing your wig. They allow you to try new styles without the worry of damaging your hair to achieve them.

Cons of Wearing Wigs

First and foremost, a high-quality wig can be expensive. Considering you might need to purchase several wigs to maintain a variety of different hairstyles, wearing wigs as a protective style could be very pricey. 

Additionally, a wig requires routine maintenance to look its best. Wigs need to be washed and restyled every couple of weeks if used regularly. Product buildup in wigs can damage the hair and clog the pores on your face.

Finally, some people experience discomfort while wearing a wig. Different wigs are made of different fibers and can easily irritate the skin, especially with cheaper or synthetic wigs.

Pros and Cons of Wearing Sew-ins

Sew-in weaves are another very popular hairstyle within the black community. Before you decide whether or not sew-ins are the right choice for you, let’s explore the pros and cons of wearing sew-ins as a protective style.

Pros of Wearing Sew-ins

First, one of the biggest benefits of sew-ins is the variety of styles they provide the wearer. Using sew-ins allows you to create several different, unique looks by choosing from a variety of different textures, lengths, and colors.

In addition, sew-ins allow you to give your hair a break from being manipulated. Black hair is very fragile and can be easily damaged by constantly combing or styling your hair. By wearing a sew-in, your hair is given a break from constant styling and heat.

Lastly, sew-ins also last longer than some other protective styles. While wearing a sew-in as a protective style, you can go a few weeks without needing to do maintenance on your hair.

Cons of Wearing Sew-ins

However, sew-ins, like many other hairstyles, also come with a few drawbacks. 

First, they can be quite expensive. Based on the quality of the hair and the type of style chosen, sew-in weave bundles can be expensive to purchase.  

Also, it can take a long time to install a sew-in. Installing a sew-in weave includes several steps and can be quite time-consuming. Several hours would need to be set aside for each sew-in install appointment.

Finally, sew-ins can put pressure on your hairline and even lead to hair loss. To install a sew-in the thread is looped around the hair, if this is done too tight it can be very painful and lead to traction alopecia.

Which is the right choice for me?

The choice between using wigs or sew-ins as a protective style is a common decision. To decide which option is right for you three things must be considered, lifestyle, hair goals, and budget.

Firstly, it’s important to consider your lifestyle and hair care routine when deciding on the right protective style. If you are the type of person who often changes their hairstyle, wigs would be the best choice. Wigs are easy to install and remove and require a much shorter time and much less effort to put o and take off. Sew-ins, on the other hand, take several hours to install and remove. If you’re interested in a low-maintenance hairstyle that lasts several weeks, sew-ins would be the right choice.

Secondly, another important consideration when choosing a protective style is the intention behind the hairstyle. If you’re looking for a temporary hairstyle, then wigs would be the right option for you. Sew-ins on the other hand, are more permanent and can last for several weeks before needing to be removed. 

Finally, consider your budget. If you're on a tight budget, wigs may be the best choice for you. Wigs come in a wide variety of styles and different price points and can be installed yourself. High-quality bundles can be expensive and since sew-ins would require someone knowledgeable to install them, this would involve an additional cost.

Ultimately, the decision of whether to wear sew-ins or wigs as a protective style comes down to what works best for your lifestyle and budget. If you consider these factors while deciding, it’s easier to decide which style suits you best.

Where can I find high-quality wigs and sew-in bundles?

The Beauty of a Black Woman's Crown

Black women’s hair is more than just a hairstyle, it is a crown that represents beauty, strength, and resilience.

In this article, we’ll discuss why black women should embrace their hair and highlight four different hairstyles that are popular among black women.

Why Black Women Need to Embrace Their Hair

For many years, black hair was considered unprofessional, unmanageable, and undesirable. However, by embracing their hair, black women can take charge of their identity and celebrate their culture and heritage on their terms.

Also, black women should embrace their hair because it is a source of inspiration for the younger generations. By embracing their hair, black women are sending an important message to the young, black girls that their hair is beautiful and something to be celebrated. 

Popular Hair Styles for Black Women 

In the black community, hair is a powerful form of self-expression. Black women have been blessed with the incredible privilege of having unique and versatile crowns of curls that amplify their strength and confidence. 

Part of the beauty of black hair is that it can be styled in so many ways. From protective styles to dreadlocks, afro, or straightened, there are endless possibilities for black women to create and explore new looks.

The following are four popular hairstyles that black women love:

Difference Between a Sew-in and Quick Weave

Posted by Paris Evans

Difference Between a Sew-in and Quick Weave

We received several calls and emails from our Hair-N-Paris family and friends wanting to know the difference between a sew-in and a quick weave. Although a sew-in and a quick weave are very different, they do have one thing in common. Both styles use bundled hair extensions that contain the track or weft. This is when multiple strands of donor's hair are sewn together creating a strip horizontally across the top of the strands, bonding the hair to what is called a track or weft. Now that you know what they have in common, let's break down the differences between a sew-in and a quick weave.

A sew-in is when your natural hair is braided into cornrows and the hair track is sewn to the braids. Some stylists use circular, straight back, or zig-zag braiding patterns, which depend on the sew-in hairstyle. Braiding your hair helps protect your natural hair while wearing your sew-in. Once your hair has been braided MOST stylists add a hair net over the braids, which provide an extra layer of protection for your natural hair as well as provide extra spacing for a fuller sew-in. A sew-in takes about 2 hours or less to install and can last two to four months depending on maintenance and your hair care routine. The cost of a sew-in is around 150 dollars and up, not including your hair extensions. This style is meant to last a few months so you would want to make sure to purchase high-quality bundles, like the ones offered at Hair-N-Paris. A sew-in is safe for swimming and other water activities. Read more about how to care for your sew-in while swimming at the Hair-N-Paris blog titled, "Will Chlorine Damage My Hair". You can also wash your hair while wearing a sew-in, I suggest washing at least once a week. A sew-in is a great protective hairstyle; you will have lots of new growth once your install is removed. You can also reuse your bundles for a second install if you purchased high-quality human hair extensions, like the bundles that are sold at Hair-N-Paris. 

A quick weave is when your natural hair is gelled or braided back and the hair extension track is bonded down over your natural hair. Another method is when your natural hair is parted and the track is glued to your scalp using hair bonding glue. The method that is safest for your natural hair is to have your hair braided back and apply a stocking cap over your hair before gluing down the tracks. Bonding glue can be very hard to remove and can be damaging to your natural hair if not applied correctly. A quick weave takes about an hour to install and can last up to two to four weeks. The cost of a quick weave is around 50 dollars and up, not including the hair extensions. Unlike a sew-in, you probably should not wash or swim in a quick weave. An excessive about of water could cause the bonding glue to slip, and you might lose a track or two. Once the hair extensions are removed from a quick weave install, it is not likely that the tracks would be reused for a second install. This is due to the bonding glue, which could become somewhat lumpy and sticky. However, you can use coconut oil to help you remove the bonding glue from your hair. Since you will probably not be able to reuse the hair bundles and the style does not last as long as a sew-in, it would be best to purchase hair bundles that are less expensive or reuse some of your recycled high-quality bundles. 

If you are still reading you, then you have a clear understanding of the differences between a sew-in and a quick weave. Now you are ready to decide the method of your next install, quick weave or sew-in. Also, feel free to visit Hair-N-Paris online to purchase your bundles and closures.
