Maybe both.While some may wear that one is more superior than the other, the truth is that both human hair and synthetic hair have their pros and cons. Ultimately, it all depends on your lifestyle, needs, and budget.

- Human hair takes more time and effort but gives you more styling options.You may need to visit a professional stylist to get the look you want if it’s not box ready to wear.But synthetic hair usually is permanent styling,ready to wear style straight out of box.requires little to no restyling even after washing.
- Human hair can last a longer time,1-3years or longer in a good care condition.But synthetic hair even good quality only last 4-8 months or less,lower quality only last 4-6 weeks or less.
- Human hair color would fade as the time gone,but can be colored and permed again,however the color result would not match original.and we don’t suggest color or perm frequently,which would damage the hair.Synthetic hair fade less ,alway remain its bright color.
