Synthetic Hair VS Human Hair:

Synthetic Hair:

Pros:

1) Offers more variety.
2) Many styles are permanently heat set so they bounce back after washing.
3) More color choices.
4) Less expensive than human hair.

Cons:

1) They are usually very bulky and hot. Very dry feeling after a few washes even with wig conditioner.
2) They have a very short life span usually only a few washes and they never feel like they did when new.
3) They don't hold up well to brushing. Brushing pulls on the hairs causing synthetic fibers to frizz.
4) Cannot be styled using heat including blow dryers. It will burn.
5) Does not absorb shampoos or conditioners.
6) Are often too glossy which makes them look synthetic.

Human Hair:

Pros:

1) Very lightweight and airy. Feels like your own hair, lays well and great to the touch.
2) Can use any styling method including heat.
3) Last very long. I have one that I have had for 2 years with regular wear. 
4)After shampoo, conditioning and styling, it looks as it did brand new.
5) Responds best to products you use on your own hair: hot oils, shampoos and conditioners etc.
6) Smells like whatever you use on it just like your hair.

Cons:

1) Far more expensive than Synthetic.
2) You have to know how to set and style hair.
3) Sometimes, they do not come styled so they may require a professional haircut.
4) You can have bad hair days or wig can feel unimaginable. 
5) Can go flat in humid weather just like real hair.
