Quality of hair from Custom Hair by Catherine is a critical factor in 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 of inferior 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 many people don’t have dark-colored hair. This damages the hair so much that the hair is dull, lifeless, and will not last a long time by the time you wear it. This hair also tends to tangle and matte extensively.
A newer term for 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 Remy hair is all over the internet as top-quality hair. Unfortunately, most of it is not top quality, and just because it’s labeled “Remy” does not ensure 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 in the processing methods used. I directly import most of the hair I use, having spent many years researching, testing, and developing strong business relationships with reputable sources to ensure the best quality available.
To achieve the best hair extensions in NYC, we use virgin “temple” Indian hair or Indian hair that is “gently” processed by hand and only when the client’s hair is the same texture, color, and wave/curl. Otherwise, high Grade European and/or Italian blended hair is used. This premium quality hair can be custom-blended to match the 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, including using the proper products and tools.
With 30 years in the business, I have seen extensive damage caused by bad hair extensions. From buying extensions online that are of poor quality or going to a salon that doesn’t specialize in them, I’ve helped clients find a non-damaging solution for their hair. I also help clients get their own hair in the best possible condition.
