Analyze The Difference Between Human Hair And Synthetic Wigs

Currently, the wig market is growing, the items are becoming more and more diverse. However, wigs are still divided into 2 main types: wigs made from real hair and wigs made from synthetic fibers. Real human hair and synthetic wigs both have certain advantages and disadvantages, depending on the needs of the user, choosing the right hair type.

With today’s modern equipment and technology, it will be difficult to distinguish between real hair and high-end wigs. This has led many customers to be tricked into buying wigs made from synthetic fibers at the price of wigs made from real hair. In this article, Vina Human Hair will share with you some experiences as well as update more useful knowledge to distinguish these 2 hair types, helping you avoid unnecessary risks when buying a wig.

What is Human Hair?

As the name itself suggests, human hair wigs are wigs produced from human hair. Hair after purchasing will go through the process of processing to weave into wigs suitable for the needs of users. This is considered the most advanced wig product and offers natural beauty as well as a perfect experience.


The majority of wigs are made from Asian hair, in addition to Indonesian, Indian, and European hair. Asian hair, especially Chinese and Vietnamese hair is characterized by thicker (unit of smoothness) and extremely straight hair, the epidermis on the hair is located in the same direction. The hair is thick and straight, so when styling hair is more difficult, this type is often used to make long straight wigs.

Indonesian hair is the main source of raw materials for the wig market today because of its low price. They are used to design traditional wigs that can be seen during the holidays. European hair is the most sought-after type because of its smooth, strong hair that easily changes color, but due to the increasingly limited supply, they are more expensive than other hair substances.

What are Synthetic Wigs?


Synthetic wigs are made from several main materials such as Toyokalon and Kanekalon, … based on the structure and appearance of real hair. The outside is covered with a layer of silicone on the surface of the hair, making the hair straight and smooth like real human hair, up to 99% like real hair. This is also a commonly used wig product today, with a variety of designs, and colors, you can find it at accessory stores very easily. It is cheaper than hair made by real people because the cost to produce a synthetic wig is only 1 in 5 compared to real hair.

How to distinguish human hair and synthetic wigs

The characteristics that we have just mentioned above have helped you distinguish hair made from real human hair and hair made from synthetic fibers. In addition, Vina Human Hair also has another way to help you distinguish them easily, which is to burn a small amount of hair holding 2 types and compare them.

If when burning hair easily burns and produces a large, dark flame of plastic, then this is exactly a wig made from synthetic fibers. When burning hair is made from real hair, it will be less smoke and a familiar burning smell of hair.

Besides, for wigs made from real hair, after burning, you will be able to easily crush its ashes by hand. As for wigs made from synthetic fibers, because they are made from nylon silk fibers, and artificial silk threads, you will not be able to crush their ashes by hand.

Another easy way to distinguish another wig is to use water. When dropping 2 types of hair into water, we will see a clear difference, Wigs made from synthetic fibers when wet will feel heavier and do not keep their shape. As for wigs made from human hair, when wet, it will still retain its shape whether it is water waves or curls.

From our point of view, if you only need to use wigs for a short time and infrequently, you can buy synthetic hair. However, if you want to use your hair regularly and for a long time, hair made from real hair will be superior. If properly stored and cared for hair, and can use for a long period and save a significant amount of money.
