Kanekalon or Eleora?

Post by Neptunes_Mask » Tue Oct 23, 2007 2:28 pm

Just a quick question... Which kind of wig is better, Kanekalon or Eleora? I know that Kanekalon has been around a long time, but it tangles so badly. Is Eleora work-withable? Is it bad? I've bought a grand total of two wigs in my life. ^^ Any comments would be appreciated. Thank you.

Eleora quality fiber is good for you depending on what you plan to do with it.

Eleora is actually derived from nearly the same type of fiber as Kanekalon. Kanekalon is both affordable and effective. As everyone knows, it's one of the widely used fibers for any cosplay purpose.

However, if you buy a wig and only plan on styling it, you won't notice the difference between Kanekalon and Eleora-Kanekalon fiber. If you want to dye it though with sharpies or something other than that, Eleora is coated with a teflon like substance and won't take any color or anything like that. It's coated and generally a thicker fiber. You won't notice it though unless you work with a lot of wigs.

However, truth be told, unless you keep it tied or at least contained at all times, the wig will get tangled a little no matter what what you do. That's just the way of the fiber track.

Hope that helped.
