Differences between Human and Synthetic Hair

Which is the right choice for you? Maybe both. Human and Synthetic Hair both have their advantages and limitations, which make them the right choice at different times. Both options are great choices for you depending on your budget, time, and needs. Why not have both types of wigs on hand for that perfect time! Here are a few facts about Human Hair and Synthetic Hair to help you make this sometimes difficult decision a little easier.

 

Human Hair:

Human Hair is known for having the most natural look and feel. It is remarkably soft with a shine and movement that is not easily duplicated in synthetic hair. Human Hair is also extremely versatile. It can be cut and styled to suit your personal tastes by our wig stylist and while it can be a more expensive pick it is also more durable and can last over a year, with the proper wig care of course!

It is extremely important to use care products specifically formulated for highly processed human hair. Also keep in mind that wearable hair does not benefit from naturally occurring oils from the scalp. It is important to hydrate and condition hair daily.

It does take a bit of extra effort and the right touch… but is worth it when you leave our store feeling your very best!

 

Synthetic Hair:

With technological advances, synthetic hair has come a long way in recent years. In some cases it is difficult to tell the difference -- the denier and texture are such that they feel almost like human hair. As a matter of fact, with some of the higher quality synthetic pieces, you would never know they were not natural human hair if you didn’t have the human hair right next to it to compare!

The most appealing aspect to synthetic hair is it can often be worn right out of the box with little or no styling. The fiber used has "memory" for wave, curl and volume which lets hair bounce back into place with minimal effort -- the curl pattern is permanently set. It can even hold up in bad weather and can guarantee no drooping or frizzing.

It is important to follow our care recommendations in order to get the optimal life span from your hair!
