Synthetic hair is a man-made fiber. There are different types of synthetic hair fibers, such as acrylic, polyester, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and Kanekalon. Lower quality fibers are shinier in appearance and tend to be less realistic in texture and movement.
Just as the name implied, heat-friendly or heat-resistant fiber can be styled using a low/medium heat setting and can be curled, blow dried, or flat ironed to achieve a different hairstyle. Heat friendly/resistant synthetic fiber can withstand heat up to 350°F/180°C. Synthetic hair should not be colored.
Light and soft with natural body and luster, Kanekalon is the highest quality of synthetic fibers available. All our Kanekalon synthetic wigs and hair pieces offer styles with soft, light, natural-looking hair with gorgeous body and vibrant, resilient color. For kanekalon fiber wigs, you should try to avoid all heat sources while wearing your wig. Heat will damage the synthetic fibers of the wig as they will become singed and partially melted.
