The psychological aspects of wearing human hair systems are what turned the industry around back in the 1980’s. For many people the idea of having a hairpiece with “Fake” hair was just not palatable and the industry quickly moved to human hair for virtually all hair replacements.
The benefits of using human hair in hairpieces are many. When custom blending the hair for a system it is the responsibility of the production to match the hair color exactly allowing for a very natural blend from the system to the existing hair. Human hair has natural light reflection so light reflects off the system in the same manner as the growing hair pretty much eliminating any lines of demarcation that may occur. Human hair looks and feels more natural and should the color fade it can also be colored to match the growing hair bringing it back to its original color. Human hair can be permed to match an existing curl pattern of the growing hair and if left with a natural wave usually will blend with anyone’s own growing hair. It also has the great advantage of the wearer being able to work with the hair as if it’s their own. Blow dryers, curling irons and other heated styling tools will not damage the hair allowing for a certain degree of versatility for the hair wearer and there are no special products required for cleaning and hair care.
For those wanting the ultimate in natural look and feel a good quality human hair system is really the way to go.
In conclusion, while both human hairpieces and synthetic hairpieces are good choices, it is really up to the hair wearer to decide what is best for them. A natural look, comfortable feel and easy maintenance are important to the wearer; human hair is a great choice.
