So the advantages of human hair are that it looks as real as you are going to get, because it is, it is going to last longer, and you can style it like you want easier. The disadvantages are that you have to style it, it is a big upfront investment, and typically this makes it more difficult to purchase a backup wig or to be able to switch styles frequently like you can with synthetics. So it becomes a matter of budget, time, and what fits your own personal style. If you like the freedom of not having to style your hair, to change it up often, and the affordability, stick with synthetics. If you don't mind styling your hair once a week, like having the same hair every day, and want something that is truly going to last - invest in human hair.
