The type of hair is also one of the important questions that customers concern about. Questions range anywhere from what different types of hair are good for, why so many types are available, and of course how to choose the best hair for yourself. With so many options available, it is easy to get confused!
Indian hair is one of the most common types of hair our factory used in the hair system. Indian hair is very soft and fine and is best suited for dark hair colors of any hair length and shorter hair lengths in just about any color! Indian hair is a good match to Caucasian hair with a little bit of bend or a very slight wave. The Indian hair holds curls very well but they do loosen slightly but will never totally fall out unless you are in a damp or humid environment.
Remy hair gets its name after the manner in which it is handled and stored. In other words, the hair that’s kept “root-to-tip” means that the root end is distinguishable from the tip end. The roots and tips of Remy hair are grouped and aligned in the same direction. In addition, Remy hair is subjected to fewer chemical processes which allow the hair to be healthier. Another important characteristic of Remy hair is the cuticle. If hair with a cuticle is inverted, it will become a tangled knotted mess, especially when wet. Remy hair is easier to maintain, lasts longer, and looks healthier and more natural than Non-Remy hair, which can look very shiny and artificial when first purchased and become dry and dull over time.
European hair refers to Caucasian hair from the western world, mainly from Russia. In the western world, very few women are willing to sell their hair which causes the high prices. European hair has a fine denier and has natural light brown and blonde shades which require less processing. It is silky and shiny by nature and considered to be the highest quality of hair extensions you can buy. Given the immense popularity and demand of European hair, many retailers try to pass on the thin and soft versions of Chinese and Indian hair as this hair type to their customers.
The denier of a strand of Chinese hair is thicker than Indian hair. Also, it can handle more processing than Indian hair. However, if your system has Chinese hair it does not mean that you’ll receive a system filled with really coarsely textured hair! Although Chinese hair is thicker by nature and is used if you do need a thick texture, we can request a soft, fine texture with Chinese hair. Chinese hair will not lose its quality after extreme processing, as long as the process is done correctly. Chinese hair is very flexible and strong and is suitable for most hair textures. It is known for being sleek and manageable while maintaining a naturally straight texture at the same time. Unlike Indian hair, it will not become frizzy or wavy in humidity.
The Virgin hair is totally unprocessed and has its cuticle layer still intact as it is not subjected to coloring or perming, whether it is straight or curly. This type of hair is generally collected from a single person, which is why it is raw and not chemically processed. Given the absolute purity of our Virgin hair, it has the color and texture of “dark brown” or “off-black” with a straight, wavy, or curly style.
