Virgin human hair is hair in its most natural form. It looks natural and behaves like your own natural hair. That is why it blends beautifully with your own hair. Also, if you take care of this hair just like your own hair, it lasts for a very long time, sometimes even a year or more. So, if wearing long lasting, natural looking hair is important to you, you must try genuine quality human hair from a reputable supplier.

 

Virgin human hair is pricey. But in the long run it is worth the initial investment because it lasts longer than the beauty supply store hair and is a much better value for your money.

 

Beauty supply store hair, which is of “non-remy” quality is relatively cheaper. However, the hair does not look or behave like your own natural hair. In addition to this, the hair starts tangling, gathering and matting after a few washes. Generally, it cannot be reused after the first installation and one needs to buy fresh packs of hair for every subsequent installation. So, if you use beauty supply store hair, you will save some money initially, but in the long run you will end up spending more. This is one area where you definitely get what you pay for.

The first thing you should know about virgin Indian hair is that it is totally unprocessed 100% natural hair. The hair you purchase will have a natural texture and color.

 

Hair Care: When it comes to virgin human hair, you have to care for your extensions just like your own natural hair. You need to brush your hair frequently. You need to shampoo and condition your hair regularly, especially if you use a lot of hair products. Deposits from the hair products, if not washed off on a regular basis, can degrade the quality of the hair (just like your own hair) and combined with the use of heat can affect the smooth natural feeling and behavior of the virgin hair. If you maintain your hair extension properly, you will have sleek, smooth, tangle free beautiful natural looking hair for a very long time and will be able the reuse the hair many times after.

Usually the type of hair used in weaving hair extensions method is “wefted hair”. Hair “weft” pieces are made by sewing hair together on the root side of the hair and keeping it freely hanging on the tip side, making it look like a hair curtain. Hair wefts are made either by hand (Hand Tied Weft) or by using specialized sewing machines (Machine Weft). Hand-tied wefts are thinner, but have limitations because they cannot be cut without unraveling and falling apart of the hair at the cut ends. Hence, for hand-tied wefts the cut ends need to be sealed by applying glue. On the other hand machine wefts are a bit thicker, but since its stitches are highly reinforced, the weft can be cut at any place without unraveling. Typically, it is stylists who prefer one weft over the other. As far as consumers are concerned, both types of wefts can give them the desired look and result.

Yes. Our wefts are “machine wefts” and are well reinforced. Hence, our wefts can be cut without any unraveling.

Since, wefts are sold by weight, how wide a weft is depends on the actual length of the hair – the longer the hair, the shorter the width of the weft. Therefore, in order to cover a larger area of your head you should probably purchase 2 or 3 packs of hair (a 16 inch weft will be approx. 9 feet long)..

Bonding: 1 pack of hair will be enough for 5-6 layers.
Weaving: for a full sew in weave we generally recommend buying 2 packs hair. Since hair does not expire, it is always better to purchase some extra hair. For hair over 18″ of length we recommend purchasing a 3rd pack and save any extra hair for later. The main rule should be: longer hair equals shorter weft width. Also, take into consideration that the number of packs required also depends on the style and volume you desire. For example if you want a celebrity weave with a lot of volume and layers, you will need 3 to 4 packs of hair.
