Let’s show you what’s best hair extensions, according to our experience, the hair quality is related with the company -
- Can you visit your supplier ?
You need to confirm your hair extensions provider /artist has an ‘open door’ policy,. Even if they are too far away... to visit ... do they allow the public to see the hair before they buy ?
Can they show you the different type of hair before you buy it ?
Do they have examples of non-remy and real hair to show you so you can be 100% sure the product they are selling is real hair ?
Maybe you feel this is lot, but it’s important to know your supplier especially you want to buy it long term.
If the provider hides behind a website ... you can be pretty sure they also have something to hide.
- What is the origin of the hair ?
European and Russian grade hair can originate from any country where the desired hair structure can be collected. It is simply impossible for all of the European and Russian hair supplies to come from one or two regions for this reason the words European and Russian hair which may once upon a time have been more country exclusive is now a loose term for human hair that is compatible with the greater hair extensions industries consumers.
Most blond hair sold as extensions is extremely expensive and simply inaccessible due to rising demand in hair extensions in the resent years, therefore natural blonde hair extensions are very hard to come by, so one would have to assume that almost all hair sold in lighter shades will have some lightening and processing to reach the desired shade.
European hair comes in a host of textures, from straight, to wavy to curly. Because of the difference in texture, the hair is compatible with most people but may not work with other hair textures such as African or Asian.
European and Russian hair can come from almost any country where a finer cross section of hair is available for sale. Colours are generally medium brown to dark brown and will be dyes lighter if required. Human hair is far softer and healthier if it has not treated with aggressive acid bathes to shave back its cuticle.
Asian hairs are normally thick, straight, and coarse. Because it is quite strong and straight it can be quite difficult to manage and get it to hold a style for this reason Asian hair can be stripped in an acid bath to make the cuticle smaller so the hair is finer... this however greatly damages the hair structure, requiring the need for silicone to coat the exposed cuticle. However once the silicone washes off after a few short washes the damaged cuticle is exposed again and the hair tangles, matts and loses its shine, soon after becoming impossible to manage and therefore requiring removal of the hair additions. As synthetic hair fibres are often manufactured in Asia we are finding the rise in heat resistant synthetic fibres being mixed with human hair... this is becoming a far greater practice than ever before resulting in matting and tangling and problems when trying to straighten the hair.
Indian hair Pilgrims sacrifice their hair to the God Vishnu in a process called tonsuring. Their hair is then sorted, washed and dyed for marketing. Often times the people of India have no idea they have been tricked into donating their hair so it can be sold at a premium and then shipped off and sold to Western countries for the use of hair extensions. This has been the cause of some controversy, and many people now refuse to buy Indian hair based on ethical reasons.
Unfortunately due to the rising demand in human hair extensions Indian hair is often mixed with synthetic hair and/or animal hair during processing.
More and more often this is happening (as the documentary on "A current affair" ) outlined recently. Indian hair is becoming very difficult to buy with confidence as it often ends up tangling and matting due the hair being mixed with something else and or not being cuticle correct.
So where possible it is much better to buy 100% human European or Russian hair if you have a European texture.
If you are of Asian descent always choose 100% Asian hair which has not been processed - you will need to therefore ask for "virgin' Asian hair. You will notice the cuticle is quite thick and this means it is intact and has not been acid stripped.
If you are of Indian decent, please choose "virgin" Indian 100% remy hair, this hair will have the same texture as your own hair. You will need to be sure it has not been mixed with any foreign materials before purchase.
According to our experience, the best hair is EU hair, also EU hair is pretty expensive and rare. Asia hair is also a good choice, Queen hairly, a work on hair business more than 10 years, high quality human hair extensions can be supplied.
PLEASE know a lot before you want to buy hair extensions.
