human hair vs. synthetic hair

Choosing between human hair wigs and synthetic hair wigs can be daunting, especially if you're new to the world of wigs. Let's break down the key differences to help you make an informed decision:


1. Human hair wigs typically last longer, often up to a year or more with proper care.

2. Synthetic hair wigs have a shorter lifespan, lasting around 2-4 months with proper maintenance.

Styling Versatility:

Both human and synthetic wigs can be styled with heat and dyed. However, human hair wigs offer more styling options, including bleaching, coloring, and varied heat styling.


1. Synthetic wigs have style retention, meaning they bounce back to their original style after washing.

2. Human hair wigs require more maintenance, needing restyling after washing and being susceptible to frizz and drooping in humid weather.


1. Human hair wigs are more expensive but last longer.

2. Synthetic wigs are more affordable, making it easier to experiment with different styles.

Ultimately, whether you choose human or synthetic hair, you'll look fantastic in your Waeve wig. Considering these factors will help you find the perfect fit for you.
