Choosing between Human and Synthetic Hair

If you are thinking of getting hair extensions, braids or wigs and cannot decide whether you should get human hair or synthetic (artificial), this will give you an idea of what the difference is between both types of hair, and will help you choose what is right for you.

All that you need to know about human hair

Human Hair: is soft, silky and natural. There are primarily four types of human hair: Indian, Chinese, Indonesian and European.  Indian hair is thin in nature but have a texture to it that allows it to be styled in different ways. Chinese hair has very thin strands which are the reason why they are straight in nature. Indonesian hair can be found at reasonable cost and have a great supply whereas European hair has a limited supply hence is more
Human hair requires more of your attention, but the look is flawless. 

Human hair needs more effort in taking care of them. They do not get any benefit from naturally occurring oils in the scalp so they need to be hydrated and conditioned daily. If you are a person who believes in quality first then human hair is the choice for you. Sure they are expensive than artificial hair but they give you same natural hair look and allows you to style them in various fashions and gives you the control of your own appearance.

Remember, Human hair is processed with several chemicals before turning them in extensions and wigs so they do lose some of its original quality and also will need more nourishment and proper care to keep them in good shape. If taken care of they can last for as long as a year.

All that you need to know about synthetic hair

Synthetic Hair:  Synthetic hair has come a long way in past couple of years. It is very hard to tell the difference between synthetic and human hair unless you compare them side by side. They are affordable and there is a wide variety to choose from. Although you have a lot of options to pick from with synthetic hair but once you choose a style, there is not much you can do with it. If you picked hair with set curls, it will be very difficult to change its pattern and so is with other hair styles.

Check out synthetic hair selection. 

The quality of synthetic hair has really improved over the years. 
There is synthetic hair available with the possibility of reheating. You can reshape them but they do not give you the desired result as human hair. They do not show the same versatility and final finish.

You can wear them right out of the box and its affordability allows you to change your hair style often.
