Human Hair Options

Hair Loss Salon In Bloomington, Minnesota, Option Picture - d.k. InternationalLast week we gave a quick overview of the different types of hair available for hair restoration solutions.  The available types of hair for systems, accents, and wigs are synthetic hair, Cyberhair and human hair.  Depending on your lifestyle and budget, all three are great options for hair replacement solutions.  Synthetic hair is a man-made fiber that is extremely easy to handle, is long lasting, and durable.  However, individuals experiencing hair loss that want a more versatile product often opt for human hair.  Human hair is more costly than synthetic hair, but the higher price allows you to use hot styling tools, get perms, and add color.

There are two different types of human hair to choose from:

  • Indian
  • European

Indian

Did you know that Indian hair isn’t necessarily from India?  At least that’s not the case anymore.  Now the hair may also come from other regions such as the Philippines and China.  Indian hair tends to hold a curl better and more closely resembles coarse, human hair with lots of body.  This type of hair is the more budget friendly option for human hair.  This is due to the extra processing it goes through to reduce the diameter of each hair as well as change the color.  During processing, the integrity of the hair can be compromised, but the lighter colors of hair are more affected by this.

European

If your own natural hair is soft and silky, you may want to look into European hair for your hair restoration solution.  European hair is known for its strength and texture because of the minimal amount of processing it goes through.  The diameter of the hair is already small and many color options are available, thus providing a minimally processed product to its end user.  Because of this, European hair can be extremely expensive.
