Burn test:

Cut a little piece of human hair and fire them, if it melts to a ball and keep fire, smell like rubber, also with some black smoke, that’s not human hair. Real human hair will firs so fast, burn nearly instantly curling into a little ball, and smell a little smelly.


When you bleach human hair, it will lighten easily. If not human hair, maybe it will be burned.

Texture :

Human hair tends to be softer, shinier and more durable than synthetic hair since they are real human hair. Touch the texture of the hair. If you touch the hair from top to end, the hair will be soft. But if you touch the hair from end to top, maybe you will feel resists and feels different fi you rub it upward. And synthetic hair is smooth whichever way you rub it.

Color :

If the hair has refined changes of color and highlights, it is most likely natural. Real hair acquires color through exposure to natural lightweight, which is quite difficult to achieve through artificial means. If your hair supplier ask what kind of color would you want? Maybe the hair is not real human hair. Generally, real human hair ought to be natural black, brown color. If you want other colors, you can bleach the hair by yourself.

Price :

The real human hair is pretty expensive. If it is unrealistically cheap, even they call it a special offer, be wary. If it’s real, the vendor can attempt to get the most effective worth for it. And, this not mean the high price will be a good one.


Whether you bought it straight or curled, real human hair will always curl up when wet; it turns to its natural state. The hair should also have some motion, a ‘bounce’ to it and should not be stiff.


Real human hair will tangle, but just a little. The longer the hair, the more likely it is to tangle especially at the back of the neck, but this should not worry you much. If the tangling is excessive, be wary.


This too, can happen with human hair but if it is excessive, it is not genuine. Shedding should only be a few strands when you comb through. Sealing the wefts of the weave will ensure the hair stays on. Comb the weave with a wide tooth comb from the tips to the roots to reduce shedding.
