Virgin Hair Vs.Beauty Supply Store Hair
The hair sold at beauty supply stores, often labeled as “virgin”, “remy” etc. is never really “virgin” or “remy” at all. As a matter of fact, around 90% of all human hair (including commercial “remy” available at beauty supply stores is low quality, wiry and stiff hair from China. It is often mixed with animal or synthetic “filler hair”. Most of those suppliers use non-remy hair to begin with, then remove all cuticles by soaking the hair in acid, chemically process it for texture, and color it with dyes. They also coat the hair with silicone, which gives it a temporary ‘tangle free’ feel and a shine, but the silicone washes off quickly and the hair becomes dry, stiff, matted and hard to detangle. After all the processing, the hair is too damaged and weak to handle any further styling such as application of heat and color that the customer might desire to do at the salon. Extensions sold at beauty supply stores look synthetic, unnatural, and last only for one service and need to be disposed of afterwards. In addition to all that, hair sold at beauty stores can cause skin irritation and scalp allergies to people sensitive to chemically processed, synthetic or animal fibers.
"Virgin Hair" is hair that has not been dyed, bleached, relaxed or chemically processed in any way. It’s actual human hair taken from a Doner(s) and sewn onto track, also known as wefts
There are subtle differences between the types of hair.
The differences are more apparent in the hair's reaction to water, heat or air drying.
For longer lasting curls on any of the hair, it is recommend to roller set hair with a hair setting lotion.
We also recommend 2-3 bundles for 10-18 inches and 3-4 bundles for 20-28 inches
1. They all have natural movement and will never tangle or shed unlike non-virgin hair.
2. They are all available in wavy, straight or curly textures.
3. The colors are not even through out the weft. You will get a few patches where strands maybe lighter or darker than the rest of the weft. This is normal and typical of hair from a sunny country where hair lightens with exposure to the sun.
4. A co-wash is recommended on all types of hair. For more information about co-washing
