A human hair weave is a hair extension made from 100-percent human hair rather than horse hair or synthetic wigs.
Many people choose to wear a human hair piece for aesthetic reasons, as a natural hair piece is often more attractive and less obvious than synthetic wigs. One difficulty with this choice, however, is that human hair pieces and full wigs can cost many hundreds or even thousands of dollars, depending on their size and quality, and you may not be eligible for outside assistance with these costs.
The biggest benefit of synthetic hair extensions is the price. Women often use hair extensions to achieve a specific hairstyle for special events, such as weddings and other formal occasions where up-dos are stylish and popular. By styling hair with extensions, these more formal hairstyles are possible even for people with shorter, layered hair. Synthetic wigs also doesn’t react to weather conditions the way human hair does, meaning hairstyles don’t droop or frizz in rain and high humidity.
Unlike human hair extensions, synthetic hair cannot be color treated and does not do well with high heat styling tools. It is available in a wide variety of synthetic wigs colors and textures, however, making choosing the right product for the intended style simple. These hair extensions can also be purchased at most beauty supply stores for people who prefer to attempt attaching and styling the hair themselves.
In my opinion, in appearance synthetic wigs are indistinguishable from human hair. However, synthetic wigs are excellent in quality and lower in price. In general, the monofilament fiber “hair” used to make synthetic wigs has “memory”, which means it maintains its wave or curl, texture and volume, requiring minimal upkeep. Synthetic wigs, however, are not designed to accept a permanent wave or “hair” dye, and can be easily damaged by the use of curling irons, blow dryers or hot rollers.
Feel it of course, and even light one on fire. Human hair has a certain smell. If you don’t know what the smell is light your own synthetic wigs on fire so you know.
