Synthetic VS. Human
Synthetic hair is a plastic-like material. Synthetic fibers are recommended for bob length or shorter, due to tangling and matting that can occur from the hair rubbing on your back or a collar. The material used to make a synthetic hair has a “memory” which allows the hair to maintain a wave or curl, texture and volume, and requires minimal upkeep after washing. Synthetic hair cannot have any chemical processes like a permanent wave or color change. Heat cannot be applied either because the hair fibers will melt. Over time, a synthetic topper or wig will start to clump together, and your wig or hair piece will need to be treated at a salon to detangle. Synthetic hair fibers are also thicker stands of hair and tend to have shine to them.
High heat synthetic wigs wear exactly the same as a regular synthetic but instead of having to take your wig or hair piece to a salon to remove the tangles and matting, you can blow dry or flat iron them at home.
Human hair-synthetic blended offers a natural look and will retain the style better than 100% human hair.
Human hair is the most natural looking. There are two types of human hair: Indian/ Asian hair and European. Human hair wigs are more expensive than synthetic hair and do require more care. Human hair can be styled and washed just like your natural hair. Both types of hair can be colored and permed. Coloring is only recommend if you’re wanting to go darker in color not lighter. Like your hair, human hair wigs or hair pieces can lose their style if they get wet and frizz on humid days. Indian/ Asian hair goes through many chemical processes, leaving the hair feeling and looking drier than European hair which has minimal chemical processes. The main difference between Indian/ Asian and European is that Indian/ Asian hair has to be blow dried with a round brush or flat ironed to look smooth and straight, while European hair can be air dried leaving the hair swinging and hanging freer. We offer remy hair, which means all the hair runs in the same direction, keeping hair from getting tangled.
