HD Fiber Vs Synthetic Hair FiberAre you looking for a new wig? Wondering if HD Synthetic Fiber or Synthetic Fiber would be better? In this article I’ll explain the differences in fiber and cover the care required for each.  Then you can better determine which fiber is best for you.

What is HD Fiber?

HD Fiber - (also referred to as heat defiant) is a heat-friendly synthetic fiber. This means you can use hot tools on it without damaging the fiber.  The HD Synthetic fiber can withstand heat up to 350 degrees, but personally, I like to take caution and stay within 275-280 degrees.  This allows you to change your style from straight, wavy or curly.  It’s like having several wigs at the cost of one.

What is Synthetic Hair Fiber?

Synthetic Hair is basically a man-made plastic that is meant to look like natural hair.   The fibers are put through various chemical processes which makes the fiber look like human hair.  Then the fibers are baked into a set style, giving you a ready to wear style that keeps its shape and style even after washing.

Both styles are ready to wear right out of the box, but with a little bit of extra care, HD fiber can give you a look that’s truly unique. If you’re looking for a wig that you can customize and make your own, then an HD fiber wig is the perfect choice for you. Take a look at these top selling heat-friendly wig styles.
