Q. What is synthetic hair made of?
Synthetic hair is made of different kinds of fibers. Some fibers are for wigs and weaving, and others are for braiding hair. When developing synthetic hair products, in order to come up with the right texture, appearance, and features, the different fibers must be blended very carefully. The blends that we have developed ensures that the hair looks, feels, and acts just like human hair. The two most popular brand of fibers that are used are from Kanekalon (which include Modacrylic and Futura fibers) and Toyokalon (which includes PVC fibers).
