Different Types of Hair

small__4769323338There is a type of hair for you depending on your budget, style, and lifestyle.  The hair replacement industry has three different types of hair meant to fulfill your needs.  Going through the experience of hair loss is a difficult one and it can feel like you’re losing a piece of your identity.  Knowing there are options out there to choose from can make the process a little easier to wrap your mind around.  Researching online the different hair replacement solutions is a great place to start, but can easily leave you overwhelmed and confused.  You’ll want to find the type of hair for you that fits your budget, feels the most like your natural hair, and, of course, looks like you!

There are three different types of hair to choose from:

Synthetic Hair

Synthetic hair is the most budget friendly option.  It is a manufactured hair made to look like your own, but doesn’t have a textured surface so it has a slightly different feel and sheen than human hair.  Synthetics are easy to handle and are popular due to their ability to hold a style after washing.  However, heat cannot be applied to synthetic hair so styling tools cannot be used.  They can also not be permed or colored.  Professional servicing will be required every 3-4 months to keep your synthetic system looking its best.


Cyberhair isn’t synthetic, but it is created.  Manufactured from nylon, Cyberhair was developed to simulate human hair.  Slightly more costly than synthetic hair, but less costly and more durable than human hair, Cyberhair is a great option for a lot of people.  This created hair has many desirable qualities:

  • Durability
  • Lightness in weight
  • Body
  • Lift
  • Fade resistance
  • Curl retention

Human Hair

Human hair, for a natural look and feel, has been a popular option for hair replacement for a long time.  Like your own hair, human hair responds to complete styling changes, perms and color.  The two types of human hair available are Indian and European.  Indian is less costly than European because European hair goes through minimal processing.  Because of the thickness and coarseness of Indian hair, it undergoes extra processing which can damage some of the integrity of the hair.
