The hairs of cheaper hairpieces may either be made from a moderate-quality human hair, animal hair, or synthesised fibers. Most dear and mid-priced hairpieces are made of Western european hair that once grew naturally in a good variety of colours, textures, densities, and levels of curl, wave, or straightness.

The least dear hairpieces are made of dark, straight Asian hair which has been dyed or bleached. Though Asian hair is extremely powerful, the coloring processes make it fragile and dry, so it breaks easily, and these hairpieces start to look fuzzy extremely quickly and must be replaced at frequent intervals. Human hair is fragile, so even the most costly and expertly made hairpiece requires frequent upkeep and should be replaced after time. Attaching the Hairpiece bear in mind that the way in which you attach your hairpiece will really affect the hair that might be without delay under it or opposite to it.

It can, nonetheless leave a sticky residue on your scalp and on the bottom of the hairpiece, which you’ll need to wash off.
