There are two types of wigs that people choose to wear. Those that are made from natural hair and those that are made of synthetic fiber. Wigs are more than just a beauty routine. They can help you boost your self-esteem especially when you have undergone cancer treatment and you have lost your hair. Wigs made of human hair tend to be more versatile because they are long-lasting (can last more than a year) and you can style them multiple ways. You can make human hair straight to curly, then back again using styling tools. This means that human hair is suited for those people with long term hair loss. Here are some of the reasons why human hair wigs has become more popular than synthetic wigs.

High quality.

When people hear the word ‘wig’ they instantly conjure up images in their heads of cheap costume wigs. These found on Halloween are nothing compared to the human natural ones. Natural human wigs are made with the highest quality hair and are made by professionals experienced in creating ones that people can rely upon and feel confident wearing.  Most celebrities prefer human hair wigs rather than synthetic as they are made with extra care to ensure they have a luxurious texture and appearance for many more years to come. The high-quality materials used to make them enable those people who have sensitive skin or allergies to choose wigs as an option.

Can be used to replace your natural hair.

If you cut your hair short and you regret the decision, you could always buy a human hair wig as a temporary solution before your hair grows back. Alternatively, they can be used by people who have lost their hair due to health complications like people who have undergone chemotherapy treatment. Human hair wigs can restore your self-confidence and make it easier for you to continue with your daily activities. Overall, the type and style of your wigs are based on your preference. For people who would like to maintain a natural look, it is recommended for them to choose human hair wigs because they are natural-looking.

Appear natural.

There are generally four types of human hair that are used in wigs: Chinese, Indonesian, Indian and European.  Chinese hair has a unit of fitness which makes the hair straight and it can, therefore, be harder to style. Indonesian hair is less costly as it is found in greater supply. Indian hair has a thinner unit of fitness close to that of Europeans. European hair is limited in supply and it is more expensive. Wigs that are used in natural hair can appear natural, smooth and tender.  You can dye them whatever color pleases you. In other words, you can treat them like your hair. Synthetic wigs, on the other hand, tend to feel dry and hard when touching it. Some people say that synthetic wigs cannot be styled in different ways and cannot be controlled by heat. This is because exposure to heat, perms or dyes will damage or melt the wig.

Made for a better fit.

Unlike synthetic wigs which are ready to wear human hair can be custom made to fit your head perfectly. Creating your human hair wig starts by first getting the scalp and head size. Then it is converted into a bespoke wig and finally, the hair is added. The benefit of human hair that is made fit for your head is that it is safe and secure. You can live a very active life without worrying that the wig might accidentally fall off.


A wig made from human hair can last up to 4 years depending on how you take care of the wig.  If you buy 100% human hair wig you do not have to worry about them tangling fast they are long-lasting. By comparison, a wig from synthetic fiber generally has to be replaced after a year. Because of this, wigs made from human hair are said to be long –term investment. Synthetic wigs, however, are inexpensive and need very little maintenance.

How to tell.

Human hair can transform your entire look. Too many women getting human hair is an investment. However, it can be quite depressing when you buy a wig and in the back of your mind you know it is human hair only for it to start tangling after a few days. By just looking at hair or touching one can tell if it is real or fake. Some fake ones will look and feel real too. So how do you tell if a wig is a human hair or synthetic? Cut a strand of the hair and put it on a burning flame. If it smells like rubber and produces black smoke, then it is not human hair but rather synthetic. Human hair will catch fire and immediately turns into a little ball and smell like burning hair.
