Human hair vs Synthetic hair extensions

human hair extensions compared to synthetic hair extensions

Hair extensions made from human hair have many advantages. They can be heated (curled or straightened), coloured for best colour matching results, styled, washed, and treated as you can with your natural hair therefore making them much easier to work with. Hair extensions made from synthetic hair do not last as long and are very sensitive to conditions such as sun exposure and moisture in the air. 

They are very difficult to style as you cannot use heat on them such as straighteners and curling irons and cannot be coloured. They are also known to blend badly with natural hair. It is clear that there are many disadvantages to synthetic hair extensions.There is no comparison between the two, we highly recommended you do not waste your time with synthetic sets if you care about your hair and your look. 

This does lead us to expected price ranges, for synthetic hair, you shouldn’t be paying more than $60- $80 and for human it can range from $120-$500. There are however different grades of human hair. At ZALA we use the highest professional AAA grade hair for our products. This ensures thick, healthy natural extensions which blend discreetly.
