FAQ & Information
Synthetic vs. Human Hair
There has been an ongoing, extremely controversial and opinionative “battle” between Synthetic and Human Hair. Due to the great improvements in the past few years in the manufacturing of a better and better synthetic fiber, we highly recommend our latest NOBO Corp Synthetic Hair. You can easily style it, wash it yourself, brush it in any direction, straight or wavy, sideways, forwards, backwards, etc. and the color will not fade for a minimum of 2 years. Just a small advantage…it even looks and feels like real human hair! Human hair will ALWAYS fade and oxidize. But whichever you prefer, we are here to make you look good and feel great while wearing your undetectable NOBO Hair System! (Even barbers can’t tell the difference!)
With a 2-year color guarantee!
This is the best synthetic hair fiber on the market today. It is a combination of 2 types of fiber: 55% Kanekalon blended with 45% Modacrylic, which provides a “memory intensive” blend which retains the wave and body for years! It is “fade resistant” and anti-static. These features allow you to blow dry with very low heat and/or style your hair system without the fiber frizzing, drying out, or fading.
We highly recommend our NOBO Synthetic Hair, because it is very easy to style and care for yourself, with a simple brush, in any direction you wish! Straight – Wavy – or Curly! 80% of all our customers choose and prefer our synthetic hair because it is so natural and only you will know that it is synthetic! Because it looks and feels so darn natural!
100% Human Hair
We use only the best human hair available on the market. Human hair will fade in the sun, but it can be re-colored with coloring shampoo or hair coloring products. Also, it can be re-curled just like your own hair using a perm! (We also offer this service for only $35.00 instead of $55.00!)
Also with human hair, unless specified otherwise, if you have any gray percentage in your hair color, the gray comes in synthetic. So when re-coloring your Hair Systems, the gray will stay and the rest of the piece will take the color you are trying to achieve.
Because of daily brushing and styling, human hair tends to lose the curls and waves after a few months, that is why so many of our customers are switching and prefer the ease and less-maintenance required when choosing our “Fiber 2010”. The curls or waves will stay for years!
Whichever way you decide to go, we offer Human or Synthetic hair!

100% HUMAN HAIR: We use the best European Human Hair. The disadvantage of human hair is, that it fades from exposure to the sun. Human hair can be re-colored. Human hair can be re-permed with any perm liquid. We offer the above services. Click on REPAIRS & SERVICE. It’s no problem to use a blow dryer, but do not get too close to the hair!
We recommended to NOT use “leave-in” conditioner because it can loosen the knots and lead to hair falling out of the hair system.
NOBO SYNTHETIC HAIR “FIBER 2010”: This is the latest in synthetic fiber technology. This fiber is the closest you can get to natural hair! Nobody will know – only you! It’s fine like real hair! It looks like real hair! It feels like real hair! It will not tangle after washing!
NEW! It can be curled with steam and curlers like human hair
whenever it is necessary!
It’s better than real hair!:
- Because the color will not fade…
- Because it’s much easier to brush and style yourself without a blow dryer…
- The natural waves will not be combed or brushed out after a short time…
- Washing and cleaning are as simple as washing a pair of socks. Wet the synthetic hair, apply shampoo and wipe gently through the hair. Rinse well with luke-warm water and let air dry. Do not use a blow dryer! When it’s dry, brush the hair in the desired hairstyle. Do no use any hairspray, it’s not necessary because our excellent layered cut looks so natural!
Although we do not say you must use our products, we highly recommend to do so, they are all that you need. The prices are great, the quality is the highest you can get, the products are the same as others, if not, better. Why pay more?
Detangling Human hair system instructions:
We recommended using our “Tangle Free Magic” (item #403).
In case your human hair system becomes tangled after washing, follow these procedures, which beauty salons and hair replacement studios use also:
- Fill one-gallon warm tap water into a bucket or sink.
- Measure 2 oz. of CLOROX BLEACH and pour into the bucket or sink.
- Now, place the hair system in the bucket or sink.
- Use a wide toothbrush and brush gently through the hair from back to the front concentrating on the tangled or knotted area.
- The tangles will come loose while brushing and the hair will become silky. Do this for no more than 3 minutes.
- Rinse the hair system thoroughly.
- Now fill another gallon of warm tap water into the bucket or sink and put 2 oz. of regular household AMMONIA in the bucket or sink.
- Now, brush gently through the hair, again for 2-3 minutes.
- Now, rinse thoroughly. Important! ALWAYS rinse with the base up to prevent hair from inverting if it is a mesh base.

Please do not use a hairdryer with the synthetic fiber, it is not necessary!
Can my hair stylist cut and style my new NOBO Hair System?
Sure! Why not? But make sure he/she knows what they’re doing! When you get your hair system cut by a barber or hairstylist, the money guarantee will be voided!
Who will re-style, re-perm, re-color, re-curl, re-condition, thin-out, repair or add hair to my NOBO Hair System?
We can! NOBO Corp will take care of this for you or any Salon or Barber of your choice, but again…make sure they know what they’re doing! Click for the Repair and Service page.
How long will my new NOBO Hair System last?
Hair System lifetime is greatly dependent, almost 90%, on customer care, wear and other conditions out of our control. Of course, production can be at fault, and we fully back our products with our guarantee, but please remember that proper care helps with the longevity of the life you can expect from our Hair Systems. Also, the more natural, the less durable, and vice versa. But with durability, you have to sacrifice some naturalness. That’s why our Transbase Hair System is the perfect balance of the both.
We highly recommend that you purchase 2 or more units and rotate them bi-weekly, or even every other day, no matter which system you choose. This helps to increase the lifespan of the systems as customers will clean their units more often if they have an extra system to rotate with. Also, it is nice to have a 2nd unit in case of a repair or re-color or if any other maintenance is necessary.
Can NOBO repair my existing unit, even if it is not from NOBO Corp?
Of course! No problem! Just fill out our Repair & Service Form, choose which type of repair or service you want to have done and send it to us! For common repair prices, click on the Repairs & Services button. If we have any questions, we will get a hold of you by e-mail, fax, mail or discrete phone call, whichever you prefer.
What type of front line is the best?
The front line is THE MOST CRITICAL area for ANY Hair System! We know this for sure! We have designed our Diamond, Skin Replica, and our NEW Hybrid-Skin Hair Systems with a very thin, transparent, durable, and undetectable, scalloped front hairline. It is absolutely perfect and natural!
But the “Top of the Line” is our new Super Jewel/Lace Front Hair System. It is the absolute best in the world! Invisible knots! Click Here
or the NEW “Sensation” Hair System, special for men 55 years and older! What should I watch for when purchasing a Hair System?
There are 5 important things to watch for when purchasing a new Hair System. Making these 5 points look as natural as possible, is what makes a Hair System “Undetectable”.
1. Hair Color – The hair color is extremely important, especially in the back, where your natural hair color is usually darker. The color match needs to be perfect. Also, as a man gets older, some grey hairs will start to show up. Do not make the mistake of having very little to no gray hair if your age says otherwise.
2. Part – The biggest mistake that hair system manufacturers make is the part being too exact or full. You don’t want an exactly perfect straight line where the part is. Only dolls or mannequins in a department store window have perfect parts.
3. Front Hairline – This is the most critical area of any hair system. Many other companies make the mistake of filling the hairline with too much hair and making it perfectly straight. No one has a perfectly straight line of hair on their forehead. We make all of our hair systems with a scalloped front hairline and a natural density to make it as invisible as possible. What’s worse is when you are speaking to someone and after 30 seconds they are no longer looking in your eyes, not listening to what you are saying, but rather staring up at your hairline wondering “What is it?”.
4. Density – Most Hair Systems are too full, this is where the term “rug” came from. A man 55 years old should not have the density of a 20-year-old. The less density, the more natural!
5. Hair Cut – Also very critical. You can have the best Hair System in the world, but if the cut isn’t right, it won’t look good. We cut all of our systems with a razor, not scissors or shears. We specialize in a layered and feathered haircut to make it look the most natural and undetectable as possible. Also, we recommend staying away form long hairstyles because, in the wind, the hair can go in all directions, and has to be fixed with a brush or comb. But a nice short haircut cannot be “disturbed” and a quick run-through of the fingers brings it back to looking great! You can always tell if someone is wearing a hair system when they come into a restaurant and the first thing they do is run to the restroom and come out patting down their hair.
