How to know if the virgin hair extensions is the best weave hair or good quality?
If you’ve never used hair extensions before, deciding what hair to buy can be overwhelming. There are so many different types of hair extensions, it’s hard to know the difference between hair extensions and virgin hair extensions.
Pure virgin hair will be the highest quality and most expensive virgin hair extensions you come across on the market because the hair is kept in its most natural state.
It has not been chemically treated, dyed, bleached or permed. In fact, it is taken directly from the head of the hair donor,gently washed and then bundled for sale. All cuticles will be intact and laying in the same direction, making pure virgin hair extensions soft and smooth to the touch. The hair will also be resistant to tangling and matting.
What is cuticle?
Human hair has 3 layers the cuticle, cortex and the medulla. The cuticle layer is the outermost layer and it kind of resembles fish scales or shingles on a roof.
When you buy hair and it says that it is cuticle or Remy hair it means that the hair was shaved from the donors and was kept in tact, all the cuticle layers (fish scales) are going in the same direction. Sometimes there are many donors and hair is thrown into a big pile so the direction of the cuticle is then mixed up and going in opposite directions.
When this happens the hair is usually washed in acid to strip the cuticles and replaced with a silicone base that gives the hair a false same direction cuticle layer and a shiny look. But after a few washes the silicone wears off and the hair can become dry and tangled. So be very mindful when buying hair out of a pack and it says Remy or Cuticle hair.
Secondly, we all know virgin hair is hair that has been cut off another human head. So virgin hair should not smell like any beauty store hair.
If it does, it means they are fake or not of good quality. Virgin hair xtensions are sold in bundles, each weighing a few ounces. For a full hair extension installation, you will need about eight ounces of hair depending on the length of hair you buy which can range from twelve inches to thirty six.
