The difference between natural and synthetic hair wigs is the type of fiber. A synthetic fiber wig will always be perfectly styled even after washing. The natural hair wigs are made from real human hair so they look and feel real, they need to be combed after washing just like real hair.
Which one do you need? It depends, human virgin hair and synthetic hair have advantages and limitations so depending on your needs, time and budget, it will be better to choose one or the other. The ideal is to have one of each, since each one has its advantages!
Human hair wigs offer a more natural look. And although they can be the most expensive choice, with proper care, they are also the most durable, lasting between 1 and 2 years. They are very soft, with a shine and movement that is not easily reproducible with synthetic hair.
Quality Remy human hair is considered the premium option. The cuticles are held in the same direction when the wig is picked up and made. With cuticles aligned and in the same direction, hair looks and feels silkier and has much less tangles. All wigs in our assortment are of this quality.
It is very important when caring for your wig to use care products specifically formulated for highly processed human hair. Also keep in mind that this hair does not benefit from the natural oils of the scalp, so it is important to hydrate and condition the hair daily.
If quality is the most important thing to you, do not hesitate to buy a human hair wig. Apart from the price, the main drawback of this type of hair is the necessary maintenance (as with natural hair); it takes effort. Many people prefer to have to style and style their hair on a daily basis, as it allows for greater control over the appearance, as well as a sense of normalcy that can come with the daily hair styling ritual. Please note that human hair does not come out of the box ready to wear. You can choose to have it customized by a professional stylist to get exactly the look you like.
Thanks to technological advancements, synthetic hair has come a long way in recent years. In some cases it is difficult to tell the difference, the density and texture are such that they feel almost like human hair. In fact, on higher quality synthetic pieces, you won't notice the difference.
The cool thing about synthetic hair is that it can usually be used straight out of the box. The fiber used has "memory" and maintains the hairstyle; waves, curls and volume remain intact with minimal effort; it can even hold out in bad weather or rain. Once washed, it will be left to air dry and the original hairstyle will be restored.
However, what synthetic hair lacks in versatility. It cannot be styled with different hairstyle shapes like human hair. Only Heat Friendly special synthetic hair can be heat styled to achieve a desired look. Keep in mind that even Heat Friendly fiber can be difficult to style, as synthetic fiber is more resistant to change.
Synthetic hair is also less durable than human hair. With proper care they can last about 6 months in good condition. It is very important to follow the care recommendations to extend the useful life of this type of hair.
The little versatility of synthetic hair is not a handicap because it is much cheaper; you can choose to have a wide variety of styles to go perfect without spending time.
Finally, my experience tells me that if you decide on a synthetic wig, it is better that you opt for one with short or medium hair (that does not rub the shoulders), this way you will achieve that the fibers take longer to wear out due to contact and friction. of clothes. In addition, the longer they lose their naturalness, since they have a movement somewhat different from natural hair.
