For many years, synthetic fibers have been a staple of the hair growth industry. In the 1980s, the hair system trend began to shift to human hair and demand began. Hair extensions began to show a big trend in the 90’s, and supply declined as demand increased in the 21st century.
With the increasing demand for higher quality human hair, it will soon be time for us to see the use of synthetic fibers in exchange for hair extensions. Fortunately, there have been significant technological advances in the hair replacement systems development of synthetic fibers, especially for the hair growth industry. The new high-tech fibers used have been in development for over a decade and are now widely used in men’s hair transplants and in the manufacture of women’s wigs. High-tech fibers are very different from modern acrylic fibers and have very palatable properties for consumers and stylists. These new fibers are usually nylon or polyester based products. They are stronger than modern acrylic fibers and have much higher heat retention. This means you can now style with thermal styling tools without melting or crimping. The heat retention allows the fibers to better maintain the curl pattern, and in most cases the flocking system made of these fibers can last for a long time and maintain a fresh look. The base of the hair system can break and fall apart, but the fibers / hair still look new.
With the increasing demand for human hair and the rapid decline in supply, there is no doubt that new high-tech fibers will be the only way. Thanks to advances in science and technology, new hair care products are constantly being developed and their quality and usefulness are growing rapidly. Only a few years ago, fiber hair replacement was just beginning to take shape, and it was becoming the standard in the hair replacement industry. It also replaces old artificial hair that has been used very often in hair transplant systems for many years. Old artificial hair is far less “human” than new advanced fibers. It can often have a grainy, rough texture, which some hair carriers find very unpleasant. Synthetic new hair is very likely to replace human hair as a “favorable” option for hair replacement due to its incredible human quality and extreme durability. Switching hairpieces to hair fibers can ultimately lead to longer lasting, more natural hair replacement solutions and reduce the overall hair replacement costs faced by consumers.
