If you’ve never had hair extensions before, you might not know what type of hair to choose. The benefits of hair extensions include adding volume and length without waiting for your hair to grow out or using products that never work on your hair. The question is, should you go with human hair extensions or synthetic hair extensions?
At Wicked Roots Hair™, we only carry human hair extensions made of 100% Remy hair. Our extensions have a natural body wave for subtle wavy human hair extensions. We firmly believe in only offering the best salon-quality human hair extensions. Let’s take a closer look at why we stand by human hair extensions over synthetic hair extensions.
What are Synthetic Hair Extensions?
When you buy synthetic hair extensions, you’re getting hair extensions that don’t have any human hair in them. They’re generally made with artificial materials such as polyester, nylon, and acrylic that are chemically treated to resemble the look and feel of human hair. Synthetic hair extensions come in various pre-styled colors, textures, and lengths, depending on what you’re looking for.
What are Human Hair Extensions?
Unlike synthetic hair extensions, human hair extensions are made of actual human hair. The majority of human hair for extensions comes from India, Malaysia, Cambodia, and China. They are then processed and dyed to create all of the different shades offered with human hair extensions. One of the best types of human hair extensions you can buy is made with Remy hair—this is the only type of hair we use for our Wicked Roots Hair™ extensions.
What are Remy Hair Extensions?
Remy hair extensions are made of human hair strands that still have their cuticles intact and flowing in the same direction. Since the cuticle is the outermost layer of the hair, when they’re fully intact and facing the same direction, you get the ideal hair for extensions. Remy hair is smooth, silky, and less prone to tangles than other hair extension types.
Benefits of Human Hair Extensions vs. Synthetic Hair Extensions
When deciding between human hair extensions vs. synthetic hair extensions, nothing quite compares to the real thing! Whether you go with straight or wavy human hair extensions, you’ll be able to see and feel the difference compared to synthetic hair extensions. Now don’t get us wrong, many people use synthetic hair extensions and are totally happy with them. With that being said, we think once you try human hair extensions (especially Remy hair), there’s no going back from there!
Try them for yourself and see the benefits of hair extensions made with human hair vs. synthetic hair:
Blends Easily into Your Natural Hair
While some synthetic hair extensions can blend into your hair without issues, they tend to be a bit stiffer and have an unnatural shine compared to human hair extensions. This can make it more obvious that you’re wearing extensions. Human hair extensions look and feel like your natural hair because, well, it is actually human hair! If you have naturally wavy hair, using wavy human hair extensions will blend well and give your hair extra body and texture.
More Versatility with Styling
With human hair extensions, you have the ability to heat style them as you would your natural hair. This gives you more options for styling human hair extensions vs. synthetic hair extensions. Synthetic hair extensions shouldn’t be heat styled at all, though some more expensive varieties have the option to heat style, it’s not very common. That means whatever style your synthetic hair extensions are, straight, wavy, or curly, you won’t be able to change that with a straightener or curling iron.
Lasts Longer with Proper Care
When you invest in human hair extensions, you’re buying a product that will last you much longer than synthetic hair extensions. With proper hair extension care, you can expect human hair extensions to last up to a year, depending on how often you wear them. If you go with synthetic hair extensions, you’ll get anywhere from a month to three months of wear out of them. Although human hair extensions are more expensive than synthetic hair extensions, it’s worth it to have hair that lasts longer.
Feel the Difference with High-Quality Remy Hair Extensions
When you choose human hair extensions, you know you’re getting real human hair that blends easily into your natural hair, gives you more versatility with styling, and lasts longer than synthetic hair extensions.
