Hair extensions can transform even the shortest, finest locks into long, luxurious tresses. These thick, wavy locks aren’t just for celebrities anymore; in fact, anyone can transform their look. The question is whether to choose human hair extensions or synthetic hair extensions. There are pros and cons to both, and ultimately, you’ll have to decide based on your particular needs and style.

Human hair is considered better quality overall over synthetic, but it also comes with a higher price tag. It is obtained from many different countries including Peru, Russia, Brazil, China and Malaysia. It is classified as Remy, meaning it has a uniform quality, with all strands facing the same direction. A large quantity of hair also originates from India, as many donate their hair as part of religious rituals. Virgin hair is hair that has only one donor.
