How to know if the Virgin Hair Extensions are the best quality?

If you’ve never used hair extensions before, deciding what hair to buy can be overwhelming.  There are so many different 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.  It is taken directly from the head of the hair donor, gently washed, and then bundled for sale.  All cuticles will be intact and lying 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 a cuticle?

Human hair has three layers the cuticle, cortex, and medulla.  The cuticle layer is the outermost layer, resembling fish scales or shingles on a roof.

Hair-CuticleWhen you buy hair that says that it is cuticle or Remy hair, it means that the hair was shaved from the donors and kept intact; 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 cuticle’s direction is mixed up and going in opposite directions.

When this happens, the hair is 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 a coat from a pack that 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 extensions are sold in bundles, each weighing a few ounces.  For a complete 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.
