The difference between human hair wigs and synthetic wig

With the increasing demand for wigs, there are many types of wigs on the market, but the materials of these wigs are different, some are human hair wigs, and some are synthetic wigs. There have been many articles to tell us about the benefits and advantages of buying a human hair wig when buying a wig, but many people don't know what the real difference between a human hair wig and a synthetic wig is. Then the text below may give you some help.

Made of different materials

The production material of human hair wig is 100% human hair, which is produced by real human hair collection and processed through various strict processes. Since the human hair wig is made by a real person, it will release a taste similar to that when the feather burns. This is because there is a chemical called keratin in the material of human hair, which is a kind of protein. When the hair burns the protein in the fire, it will release the gas.

The materials of synthetic wigs are mainly made of natural materials such as human hair, animal hair, and some relatively coarse synthetic fibers. Due to the high cost of natural materials such as human hair, many wig manufacturers tend to use synthetic fibers to make wigs, which are inexpensive and easy to manufacture. But people are not as natural to use as human hair wigs, and they are not as breathable as human hair wigs.

Different craftsmanship

In general, the production cost of a human hair wig is relatively high, and the production process is more complicated and more elaborate. It is hand-woven by healthy long hair from a young girl in a remote area without an ancestral hall. Synthetic wigs are chemically synthesized from various materials such as synthetic fibers.

The general procedure is as follows: firstly, the phase change energy storage material is melted, added to a natural polymer stock solution or a fiber-forming polymer stock solution, and then subjected to a solution spinning method to prepare a primary wig fiber having a diameter of 20200μm, and then sequentially passed through a silicone.

Finishing agent emulsion impregnation, padding and baking process, self-crosslinking film formation on the surface of wig fiber, or reacting with the group in the wig fiber to form a film, that is, preparing a synthetic fiber wig having heat storage and temperature regulation function.

Different lengths of use

In general, human hair wigs are long in synthetic wigs because of their good quality and good quality. In daily use, human hair wigs can last for a year or more, while synthetic wigs usually last only 4-6 months (of which heat-friendly synthetic wigs usually last only about 3 months). If the wig is not worn frequently, the use and storage time of the wig can be extended.


In addition to these differences, synthetic wigs have a distinct advantage, that is, synthetic wigs have more colors. Although human hair wigs also have colorful hair wigs, their color is still significantly less than that of synthetic wigs.
