Quality of Hair
Quality of hair is an extremely important factor as to how “real” your hair extension will look. While many places claim to use only “100% human hair”, they fail to realize or tell you that 90% of the human hair available is very poor quality because of the processing methods and sourcing. During processing the hair is heavily stripped and the cuticle layer is inverted which damages the hairs’ natural protective coating. It is further processed to imitate the colors, curl, and texture of Caucasian hair since a lot of people don’t have dark colored hair. This damages the hair so much that by the time you wear it, the hair is dull, lifeless, and will not last a long time. This hair also has a tendency to tangle and matte extensively.
A newer trend in the type of hair being used for extensions is Indian Remy hair or the generic term “Remy Hair”. While this type of hair can be better than the typical manufactured human hair, much of it still goes through an extensive process and does not meet my top quality standards.
The term Remi hair is all over the internet as top quality hair. Unfortunately, most of it is not top quality and just because it’s labeled “Remi” does not insure it is good hair. Cheap hair is cheap hair – you get what you pay for. The key to good quality hair is not only in the source but also the processing methods used. I directly import the majority of the hair I use having spent many years researching, testing, and developing strong business relationships with reputable sources to insure the best quality available.
I use virgin “temple” Indian hair or Indian hair that is “gently” processed by hand and only when the clients hair is the same texture, color, and wave/curl. Otherwise, I use High Grade European and/or Italian blended hair. This premium quality hair can be custom-blended to match texture, color, and wave pattern desired. It is cuticle, healthy hair that will remain glossy and full of life for an average of 6-14 months with proper maintenance. As all hair tends to dry out, it is an absolute must that the Maintenance Care Instructions be followed, which include using the proper products and tools.
