What's the difference between human hair extensions and synthetic extensions?

April 14, 2021 Hair Extensions 101 Views: 1747

There are two different hair fibers used in UniWigs hair extensions: Human hair extensions and synthetic hair extensions.

UniWigs human hair extensions are made from real human hair, and they can be freely colored, heat-styled, and curled. If you care for your human hair extensions properly, they can last one to two years. The price for UniWigs human hair extensions ranges from $100 to $500.

There are two different types of synthetic fiber: Low-heat Kanekalon synthetic fiber and heat-friendly fiber. Synthetic hair fiber mimics the natural feel and looks of human hair, and it feels smooth and soft to the touch.

Heat-friendly synthetic fiber can last between three to six months and it's affordable at $30 to $100. Compared to human hair, heat-friendly synthetic fiber has the benefit of style memory. For example, if you add curls to the hair, it will keep the curls very well even after washing.
