Human Hair vs. Synthetic Hair (Hair Replacement Systems)

posted by USTom, 20.10.2011, 19:29

Real Human Hair vs. Synthetic

To me this question never occurred to me until very recently as every other hair replacement company I've ever used only offered human hair. They always talked about the quality of the hair they used (Russian, Italian, etc.) and I always assumed  that nothing could ever look more like real hair than real hair.

Boy was I wrong.

Only a few places use synthetic hair but I can say unequivocally that it is better. There are a few reasons:

1) There is never a need to color your hair. This may be the single biggest problem I experienced with hair systems as getting the unit to be consistently colored depended upon the stylist. Many times my hair would be super dark, other times very light and other times very unevenly dyed.

It was the most stressful part of getting a hair cut/unit service as every time I walked out I didn't know if I would match.

With human hair you really have no other option but to dye it as it oxidizes very quickly (especially if you are outdoors a lot) and it has to be dyed regularly. Hair dyes are also the main reason that systems start looking old.

2) Synthetic hair can have a "memory" that makes styling a snap. Now that I use a hair system with synthetic fibers it takes me about three minutes to style my hair as it "remembers" how to stay in place. Nothing beats this as your hair always looks natural, even right out of the shower. If you aren't a great hair stylist, this one tip will save you lots of frustration.

I was not even aware that synthetic hair was an option until this year and it turned an already positive experience with hair replacement into a dream come true.

I will never go back to human hair and I recommend you look into this option if you haven't already. It's probably the most important of the "Pillars" of hair replacement.
