If you've never used hair extensions before, deciding what hair to buy can be overwhelming. There are so many different types of synthetic and human hair, it's hard to know the difference between them. And are any synthetic hair products as good as human hair extensions?
Depending on what style you are going for, those who wear braids may find that synthetic hair works best with their hair.
But if you are going for quality over cost, you are most likely looking for human hair extensions. Human hair extensions tend to be softer, shinier and longer lasting than synthetic hair because they are made from actual human hair.
Some unscrupulous hair sellers will try to pass off hair mixtures as virgin. You can usually tell by the texture and bundling if your extensions are virgin or not. But some mixes can be very convincing. One way to test if a hair bundle is human or fake is to burn it. Human hair extensions will burn, synthetic hair will melt.
Check the fiber of the hair closely! – If the hair is really mixed with synthetic hair, you can find out. You can test it by putting a flat iron to it and examining the smell of the hair. If the hair burns badly, it’s fake hair.
Examine its details to determine its life span! – If you can get permission to feel the hair extensions before buying, do so. Some beauty supply stores have mannequin heads with the hair installed on it so you can get a feel of it. You’ll want to pay attention to softness and if its already shedding or not, thickness or thinness of the track weft, etc. I slept without a hair bonnet on with these extensions for three nights. This was to test to see if it would knat up and tangle. Surprisingly, I had none. Many so called human hair brands won’t last up to 5 days before it tangles and gets out of hand.
