Human Gray Hair VS. Synthetic Gray Hair – How We Should Select

When buying hair systems, the first thing that most people always judge by must be whether it appears natural-looking enough to be fully undetectable, especially on public occasions. As many of us know, the most significant determinants of the naturalness level of men’s hair systems are undoubtedly the base design and hair type. However, aside from these two, another factor that can make big differences in how realistic the users’ hair systems look is actually the amount of gray hair mixed in the hair systems, largely depending on their age range and own gray hair volume.

Types of Gray Hair

On the hair system market, there are typically two types of gray hair available: human gray hair and synthetic gray hair. Both of them are widely used for the production of hair system products. In spite of that, there still remain several differences between them that hair system users should be knowledgeable about in order to find the right hair system option for themselves.

Comparison Between Human Gray and Synthetic Gray

When comparing these two types of hair, you will see little difference in how they appear when mixed in a hair system. If you look closely, you might find out that synthetic gray hair appears a little shinier than human gray hair, which is therefore not as realistic. So for hair system wearers who give a great deal of importance to the naturalness aspect, hair systems with human gray hair might be better options.

On the other hand, human gray hair has proved to prevail over synthetic gray hair in terms of resistance to damage. As many of us might not know, frictions against things like a pillow and a helmet can lead the synthetic gray hair to deteriorate and result in a frizzy appearance as time goes by. So if the hair system users expect a relatively long lifespan out of their hair systems, then human gray hair should be what to give a thought to. This is especially important to keep in mind if the wearers tend to perm or straighten the hair of their hair systems. This is because human gray hair and synthetic gray hair differ considerably in how vulnerable they are to heat. The video at the beginning shows you a direct comparison of how heat causes each type of gray hair to change.

Even if human gray hair is seen as a more natural-looking and long-lasting hair option, synthetic gray hair has its advantages as well. As a very fine plastic filament made primarily of modacrylic fibers, synthetic gray hair requires little maintenance. Unlike human hair, synthetic hair barely needs any styling work after washing, meaning the wearers can just shake them out and look stunning. For another, synthetic gray hair is less prone to color change and oxidation compared to human hair, so the color will last longer as it’s more resilient to the damaging effects of UV rays. Synthetic hair is known as an ideal option if you have any gray hair mixed with your natural hair color as it will not absorb the hair dye if your hair system is colored. Lastly, synthetic gray hair systems are a more affordable option compared with those human gray hair ones due to a lower cost. And this is valued by a large number of users worldwide.

Human Gray Hair VS. Synthetic Gray Hair: Does Coloring Conditioner Work on Them

Human grey hair is soft but easily changes color in the sun. If you want to dye the customer’s hair toupee another color or curl for the customer’s hair toupee containing human grey hair, you should be very careful because the human grey hair might change color during that process. For example, if the men’s toupee is color #4 with human grey hair, if you dye color #4 into color #3, the grey hair might also become darker than before.

Synthetic grey hair is man-made hair. It is rougher than human grey hair but does not change color under any treatment. So even if the sunshine is very strong, it will not change color. And even if you dye or perm synthetic hair it will always keep its original color.


The above sums up the main differences between human gray hair and synthetic gray hair, as well as how the differences matter to hair system wearers’ purchase decisions.

● What hobbies and interests do you have?

I enjoy exercising. That’s a very important part of my life. I’m a super active person.

● Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

No, not that I know of. I’m a very realistic person. If you mention outlandish stuff like aliens, monster in the bush, I’d be out of my mind.

● What is something you would love to do in the future?

I want to learn how to swim. I know it might sound a bit sarcastic, as I just mentioned that I enjoy doing exercise. Unfortunately, swimming hasn’t been on my list. I think I better catch up on that.

● What wig would you wear if you wore one and why?

I’d give HW1 a try. It looks natural and beautiful. Though we categorize it as a medical wig, almost any female can wear it. It’s got a lace mesh base, breathable, and flexible. You don’t need glue or tape to fix it to your head. Pretty easy, and it gives you all the long hair look a girl could want.

  • How would people in the office describe you?

At our end-of-year conference, my colleagues agreed that I’m a warm hearted, positive, and easy-going teammate. It gives me a sense of reward.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I don’t like being confined in a very small space. I believe it was due to a childhood experience. When I was six years old, I accidentally tripped and fell into a shallow well. I had to wait for two hours before I was found. Since then, I’ve found I just can’t tolerate the idea of being alone. I guess that makes me an active team player.

  • You are happiest when…

This may sound boastful, but it’s true. It’s just part of my nature to help others. When I actually see that what I did for them has helped them achieve something, it just makes me excited.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

I recomend HS25V. Oftentimes I’d introduce this model to my new clients to start with, so they can introduce this to their new clients see if hair systems are what really suit them, before they carry on with lace or mono hair systems.

I’m into so many things. All the popular stuff you name: Swimming, badminton, running, all for keeping me in good shape.

  • How would people in the office describe you?

They keep calling me “pretty Winni pretty brainy.” I’d take that as a compliment. I’d say I’m generally pretty fast in term of thinking and figuring out solutions. My teammates often turn to me for help, too. And It turned out that most of the time my ideas worked for them.

  • Do you have any pet hates?

I’m a typical town girl, you know. I’m into cats and dogs. But things like snakes, all sorts of insects, and hamsters; they are not my cup of tea. So, never get them near me.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that?

Most of my clietns are after Q6. And their clients happened to be guys who are into hair systems that are durable and natural. Q6 is a pretty good pick for them. With proper care, it should easily last 6 months.

I’m always fascinated about an exotic lifestyle. I really wish I could travel a lot, go to many different countries, and try their local gourmet food, and get in touch with the locals to actually have a feel of their culture.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I’m always afaid of heights. With any tall buildings, be it a chimney or TV tower, I look at it, and imagine I’m looking down right from the top, it will give me sweaty palms.

  • Do you have any pet hates?

Not at all. I generally love all pets. Dog, cats, guinea pigs, rabits, etc. I love them.

  • Do you have a favourite quote?

When you feel tired,it means you are walking uphill. I believe this quote as a truth that gives me a lift whenever I’m down. I believe there’s no gain without pain. Without trying, we can’t achieve anything.

  • Which men’s/women’s hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

With me personally, the best-selling hair system has been HS1. It has what it’s required out of a good quality hair system, in terms of a natural-looking hairline, undetectable scalp, etc. Most wearers and salon owners are familiar with it. Plus, all our clients have faith in the quality of this hair system. According to their feedback, this is an easy-to-attach, easy-to-maintain hair system for both men and women.

I don’t know why I share the same gene with Doraemon. I’m scared of rats. I’m a 6’3″, but I hate rats; seeing one really freaks me out.

  • Which men/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

New Australia. When it first came out in early 2023, it made me top of sales. I think most wearers like it because at the design statge, our experts considered all possible aspects people could want from a hairpiece, such as a natural look, a level of comfort, and affordablity; it’s similar to lace, but most wearers can afford.
