The reason is at first they look very similar. It isn’t until you take a closer inspection and get information from a hair loss expert that the differences become more evident. Human hair and synthetic both have their advantages. Of course the particular needs of the client are also an important factor when selecting a wig.

It also has the ability to be cut, styled, and colored. Human hair wigs and hair pieces don’t have the natural oils that the hair growing from our scalp does, so it is important to use the proper products to keep the hair hydrated and conditioned. This should be done daily to extend the life of your human hair wigs or hair piece. Synthetic Hair The fibers built into the synthetic hair can preserve the curls, waves, and hair volume of a wig or hair piece. You cannot color the hair and it can’t be restyled easily. With synthetic hair, it is imperative that you follow the instructions to care for it [...]
