If you’ve never used hair extensions before, deciding what hair to buy can be overwhelming.  There are so many different types of synthetic and human hair, it’s hard to know the difference between them. Are any synthetic hair products as good as human hair extensions? 


Hair extensions come in all sorts of types, texture, lengths and colours. But the most important is what they are made of, whether they come from a human hair or synthetically made. For some they may think that they can save by using or buying synthetic hair because they are way cheaper than real hair but in reality they aren’t.



Yes, you can save if you are after one time use, but if you are after a more permanent one then I would highly recommend the human hair as they last longer than synthetic ones. In addition, human hair looks and feels natural. They are incredibly soft, shiny and manageable as compared to the synthetic hair.



Human hair is highly versatile as it can be styled like you would your ordinary hair which can be difficult for synthetic hair as they cannot withstand heat. Therefore, synthetic hair limits your styling capabilities and they are also off limits to hair processes such as coloring and perming.



If you want the best hair go for the ultimate option, Remy human hair. They are considered premium because they were collected with the follicles intact and running in the same direction which is accountable for its manageability and minimized tangling.


How to tell human hair from synthetic hair? Aside from looking natural, soft, shiny and manageable, another way of differentiating the two is by burning both if its human hair then it will burn but if it’s synthetic then it will definitely melt.
