What are the differences between human hair and synthetic hair?

There are advantages to both human hair and synthetic hair wig. Human Hair offers the most natural look and feel as well as styling versatility. While typically more expensive, with proper care, human hair can last over a year or more depending on how well you maintain it and wear it. It is remarkably soft with a shine and movement that is not easily duplicated in synthetic hair. It is also extremely versatile. Human hair can be cut and styled to suit your personal taste.

There are mainly four basic types of human hair used in wigs.

  • Chinese, wigs are made out of Asian hair Chinese hair has thicker coarse and straight hair. It is more resistant to curls so it will be harder to style.
  • Indonesian, hair is less costly and can be found on ethic style wigs.
  • Indian Hair– is thinner but is closer to European hair but with bit more texture and a little bit less costly than European but not too much. European hair is the most sought after for it’s fine denier but due to its increasingly limited supply in the market place it is more expensive. The most difficult human hair to get is Gray hair that is also European which is costly as well.

European, Caucasian and Russian hair is the most popular, if you are searching for the natural look.

  • Remy human hair is considered a premium option. Hair follicles are kept running in the same direction when collecting and crafting the wig or hairpiece. With cuticles all running in the same direction, tangling, is greatly reduced and hair looks and feels silkier. Remy hair is great for extensions, hairpieces, and wigs because it achieves the most natural look. The great thing about Remy hair is that the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped like in non-Remy hair extensions.
  • Regular Synthetic Hair tends to be a more affordable choice and offers great ease of wear.  Wigs can often be worn right out of the box with little or no styling. Both are great choices for you depending on your budget, time, and need. They both have their pluses!

Please note, that synthetic hair is sensitive to the sun, does not last as long as human hair and can be difficult to style and cannot blend in as well with your real hair. Synthetic wigs look best in real short hair styles.  Expect to pay anywhere from $60.00-$85.00 for Synthetic hair extensions and anywhere from $100.00 to $500.00 for human hair extensions.
