Synthetic hair pieces and extensions are a great option for anyone looking to improve their current style. Unlike human hair wigs, synthetic options are made from a variety of fibers, making them more affordable than natural options.
Synthetic hair extension options are usually clip-on pieces designed to enhance your existing style. The fibers are bunched together and bonded to a clip or other device, allowing you to attach and remove the synthetic fibers with ease.
Synthetic hair has many advantages over natural solutions for hair replacement. Along with costing less, synthetic hair pieces are easier to change. They also allow you to add as much new hair as you want to your existing style. For example, many people use synthetic hair extensions to make their hair look longer and fuller without having to cover their entire head.
Hair pieces created with man-made fibers hold their style well. Even in rain and high humidity, your style is more likely to stay in place when you are using synthetic hair replacement as opposed to human hair. They are also made to be easier to care for. Human hair requires more time and energy to keep it looking its best.
Synthetic hair can help you choose the best style for your hair by providing:
- Many options for color, length and texture
- A more affordable price tag
- Availability at most beauty supply stores
- Easy attachment for do-it-yourself styling
Unfortunately, synthetic hair replacements simply don’t have the look and feel of human hair. Synthetic hair has a different shine and movement. It also doesn’t usually blend well with human hair, which can make adding synthetic fibers to your existing style more noticeable. Other disadvantages include:
- Cannot be color treated
- Cannot be styled with hot tools
- Does not last as long as human hair options
While synthetic hair extension options are easier to use and care for, they just don’t look the same as natural hair pieces. While this may not be an issue for people looking to add some flair to their existing style, those needing hair pieces to cover complete hair loss due to a medical condition or natural balding may not get the look they want with man-made materials.
