The biggest drawback of human hair extensions may be that their price isn’t reasonable for everyone.
Synthetic hair extensions, on the other hand, can be a more affordable option that is usually cheaper. They are from various synthetic fibers and don’t contain human hair. With advances in technology, synthetic hair has become more popular in recent years, with newer options from fibers that make us feel more like real hair. However, they are less versatile than human hair, need to take more effort to change curl patterns and also can’t last as long as human hair.
