Different Types of Wig Hair Fibers

Human Hair: 
Just as it states, 100% human hair, generally donated or contracted to make wigs and hairpieces is a preferred choice for many. Incredibly natural, human hair wigs can be styled using heat with curling and flat irons, blow dryers and hot rollers, and can be professionally dyed and highlighted the same as if your own hair. Without limits, if not wanting restrictions in creating different looks on a daily or weekly basis, natural human hair is recommended. Note, while conventional heat styling and coloring can be achieved, it's recommended to avoid "lift" in color versus adding depth for best results. Human hair fiber is durable, generally costs more, and has the most natural look and feel of any wig you can buy. 

Synthetic Hair: 
Consists of man-made fiber of either polyester, acrylic and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It is less expensive than human hair, is durable and can look as real as your own hair. The curl pattern is incorporated/pre-styled into the structure of the hair so it remains that way to ensure fuss free styling and upkeep. Rain, humidity, wind, synthetic fiber holds it shape. NOTE: synthetic hair fiber CANNOT tolerate heat, therefore no curling irons, blow dryers and hot rollers. Also be extremely careful if opening oven doors, the sudden rush of heat can singe the synthetic hair fiber and ruin it immediately. 

Heat Friendly Synthetic Hair: 
Offers the styling flexibility of human hair with the affordability of synthetic hair. One of the most amazing advances in the wig industry, high heat-resistant synthetic hair fiber allows you to heat style the hair with conventional hair tools from 320 - 350 degrees fahrenheit. Perfect for women on the go that need cost effective hair on a budget, while allowing hair fiber able to be customized to fit your needs. 

Human Hair and Remy Human Hair: 
The highest quality 100% human hair for styling galore. Also, remy human hair, or virgin hair is the purest and non-chemically treated version of human hair, also referred to as 100% remy or remi human hair. Allowing for less hair tangling and greater versatility, the non-processed hair takes well to heat styling and professional coloring and highlighting for endless options. The most luxurious form of human hair you can purchase in a wig or hair piece. The hair is hand-knotted in the direction of the individual's own hair growth, allowing the finished wig itself a gorgeous and natural look. Brilliantly shiny, healthy and easy to style.
