Once you’ve decided that you want to invest in extensions and that you would rather try our method of using Mane Tubes instead of damaging your natural hair with glue, sewn-ins or the fusion method, there’s only one thing left to decide: human hair or synthetic? A lot of people seem to be on the fence about this because though they believe that human hair would be better quality, the price of synthetic hair is also very appealing
That being said, we thought it would be a good idea to educate our readers even further about each alternative so that you are not making your decision purely based on price.
Appearance – The word “synthetic” literally means “fake” or “artificial,” meaning that the coloring used to make these particular extensions is never going to be an exact match to your own natural hair color. Human hair on the other hand is, as the name suggests, actual human hair. It is absolutely possible that you could find human hair extensions to match your own shade and texture exactly, making it nearly impossible for anyone to tell which strands are real and which are fake.
Longevity – If you’re going to spend the time and money having hair extensions installed, you are obviously going to want to make sure that you pick ones that are going to give you your money’s worth and last for a long time. If you care for and treat your real human hair extensions well, it’s possible that they may last in good quality for up to a year. Unfortunately, synthetic hair doesn’t hold up the same, often frizzing and fraying after each wash. Because of this, you will be lucky to get three months out of your extensions.
Styling – Because human hair is natural, it will react the same way that your own head of hair would to heat. This means that you can continue with your routine use of curling irons, straighteners and blow dryers without worrying that your strands will burn or be ruined from the heat. The same cannot be said for synthetic hair, which is uber sensitive to high temperatures. Use a curling iron on synthetic extensions and you will be left with a melted mess.
So while you may be paying a higher price for your human hair extensions, you can clearly tell that the quality will more than pay for itself over time. Have any additional questions? Feel free to contact us here at Mane of Your Dreams!
