Human Hair vs. Synthetic Hair Extensions

The question that is most asked from our buyers is which will last longer, Human Hair extensions or Synthetic Hair extensions.  Human hair will last longer, generally a year or even longer with proper care and maintenance.  With a shine and flow that is not readily duplicated in synthetic hair, they are surprisingly smooth.

The second most popular question on our website is which one is easier to take care of.   Synthetic hair needs to be washed minimally and their style holds better in certain situations than Human hair.  So you are probably wondering then how do I figure out which one I should purchase.  Keep reading to make it a little more clear.

The distinction is in the fibers of synthetic and human hair extensions. Even after washing synthetic hair, it will be better at maintaining its style because of the different fibers.  Human hair extensions are made from real human hair to look and feel real, but they still need to be restyled much like natural hair after washing.

With technical developments in recent years, synthetic hair has come a long way. In some instances, the distinction is impossible to tell—the density and texture are such that they almost feel like human hair. In fact, with some of the higher-quality synthetic hair, if you didn't have the human hair right next to them to compare, you would never know they were not real human hair!

A premium choice is known to be Remy Human Hair. In gathering and crafting the  hairpiece, hair follicles are kept flowing in the same direction. Tangling is drastically minimized with cuticles moving in the same direction, and the hair looks and feels silkier.

By now you have hopefully gained some knowledge into the pros and cons of both human hair extensions and synthetic hair extensions. 

Human hair extensions are available in the same range of textures as real hair: curly, natural, straight, wavy, light, dense, fair, etc. Further, human hair extensions, much like natural hair, can be styled, permed, straightened, or dyed any time you want.  You can’t go wrong if you decide on human hair extensions.

You can't restyle conventional synthetic hair extensions. They come pre-styled, and regardless of every heat source - hair dryers, curling irons, straighteners, even an open oven, you're married to the look forever! - The synthetic hair extension could be damaged to the point of not being able to wear it.   

First-time hair extension buyers frequently believe that there are only two kinds of human and synthetic hair extensions, but that's false!   There is a third form: synthetic, heat-friendly hair extensions.  Just be sure you know when you buy if your synthetic hair extension is heat friendly or not.
