Arda CLASSIC vs Arda SILKY FAQ
Want to know more about Arda CLASSIC and Arda SILKY? We've got some info for you!
Not sure which fibre type is right for you? We’re here to explain further!
‣ What is Arda CLASSIC?
Arda CLASSIC is our original blend of heat resistant synthetic fibre. Benefits of Arda CLASSIC are:
- Durable against heavy styling and high heat
- More textured fibre is ideal for spiking and styling with hair products
- Resists snags and pulling when combed heavily
- Matte, natural look
‣ What is Arda SILKY?
Arda SILKY is our newer proprietary blend of high-quality, heat resistant synthetic fibre. This fibre blend was developed in-house and is unique to our company. Benefits of Arda SILKY are:
- Smooth and soft to the touch
- Smoother fibre shaft makes longer wigs easier to comb and detangle
- Resistant to tangling
- Low maintenance and great for ready-to-wear styles
‣ What benefits come with Arda brand wigs?
All of our wigs come with the assurance of a big, roomy cap, heat resistant fibres, high fibre density, and custom blended colours for a natural look in pictures. Arda wigs have a minimum of three colours that go into the making of each of our shades.
‣ So which fibre do I choose?
That depends on what’s most important to you! For a wig that needs to stand up to a lot of heat or styling, pick CLASSIC.
If you want a wig that needs to stand up to a lot of activity, weather, or movement, pick SILKY.
Keep in mind that our CLASSIC fibre is extremely durable and definitely stands up to detangling, but SILKY is the choice for customers who need an effortless way to keep longer locks loose and flowing while on the go!
Arda Classic has a heat tolerance of 215°C. Arda Silky has a heat tolerance of 175°C. We do not recommend you go to the highest limits of these fibres; it is much easier to make a mistake that way, and can age the fibre over time! We suggest staying between 150-165° for both types of fibre, or 90-150° if hair products such as hairspray are present. It's more than enough heat to accommodate any project. Treat it like you would your own hair!
