Remy Human Hair vs. Synthetic Extensions

Remy Human Hair vs. Synthetic Extensions

Dear Diary,

In today’s day and age, it is so easy to get caught up in buying the wrong product. With so many dupes out there in an ever-buzzing market, it’s impossible to know if you’re making the right purchase for you; however, when it comes to hair extensions, choosing Remy human hair over synthetic extensions will give you your money’s worth every single time.

To start off, this isn’t to say that synthetic hair is BAD - it is just meant for specific purposes, not long term use. Think about synthetic hair about the hair you would see on your favorite Barbie Doll. Sure it’s shiny and holds a lot of deep color, but at the end of the day, it ultimately feels brittle and can break easily at any moment.

While you’ll notice synthetic hair is on the lower price point, it’s important to note that buying Remy human hair will allow you to enjoy your investment for longer, and with more opportunities for styling! Here’s why:

Remy hair refers to hair of which the cuticle (outermost layer) has been kept intact, not stripped, and aligned in one direction. This process ensures that the hair will remain smooth, shiny, and relatively tangle-free throughout its lifetime - unlike synthetic hair. 

It is also treated at a facility to achieve your icon and classic colors; however, the integrity of the hair remains the same. This type of hair is the most desirable as it is literally made of the same material as natural hair - keratin. 

Remy human hair extensions not only achieve the most natural blend, but you can also wash them, color them, dry them, style them any way you like with your hot tools, and use your favorite products - all of which you cannot do with synthetic hair!


If you are shopping online for extensions and looking to avoid synthetic hair, you’ll want to avoid their other names known as:

  • Vegan synthetic fiber from Japan
  • 100% high heat synthetic fibers
  • NextGen faux fiber
