Hair Types

Virgin Hair

Virgin hair (natural) simply means that the hair is completely natural and unprocessed without chemicals (such as perms, relaxing agents, or coloring dyes). Since the hair is completely natural, there has been no damage to the cuticles or the true structure of the hair. The hair cuticles actually protect the hair, and provide a natural look without dullness. Keeping the hair cuticles aligned and running in the same direction help prevent tangling and matting. This is very important when it comes to hair extensions, because you want a quality install that will last you as long as possible. Virgin hair is considered the best quality of hair which is known to last longer with proper care and installation.

 

Most hair that you find in beauty supply stores are not Virgin Hair. It is made to look pretty in the package, but when you start using it, it only lasts a couple of months at best. They enhance the hair in the stores by over processing with chemicals, this greatly reduces the longevity of the hair. It actually rips the hair cuticle from the hair and causes permanent damage.

 

Our Natural Hair comes in Natural Wavy, Loose Curly, Medium Curl, & Tight Curl. Natural colors will vary.

 

Wefting

What Is Weft Hair?

A weft is a track of several inches long on which the hair is already attached (a curtain of hair attached together at the top and free flowing at the bottom). A weft can be made by a machine or by hand. Handmade wefts can be custom made to suit your head and match your hair. The extensions are then applied by using one row (track) at the time instead of strand by strand.


Machine Wefts
Machine weft is sewn using a special sewing machine specifically designed for stitching wefts. Some stylists are more comfortable working with Machine Wefts rather than hand tied wefts because it allows them to cut and seal the track themselves. Machine Wefts are generally made with the help of a sewing machine especially made for sewing weaves. Machine made wefts are one continuous track which varies in length based on the length and texture of the hair. Always make sure a high quality hair extension glue to seal the ends when they are cut. If the ends are not glued properly, shedding may occur. Machine wefts will not unravel when cut, if sealed properly. Our Machine Wefts come in one long track, which a stylist will usually have to cut and seal themselves. We recommend that you consult your stylist if you are unsure about which type of weft to purchase.


Hand Tied Wefts
Hand-tied wefts are thinner and more flexible than machine tied wefts. The weft is flatter and allows the hair extensions to lay closer to the head giving a more natural look. As the hair underneath grows, the flexibility of hand-tied wefts helps to keep the weft from sticking out from the undergrowth. When sewn in, they can be folded over to best fit the track. Hand Tied Wefts are done in our factory in India by skilled workers. The width of the wefts can not be cut. Hand tied wefts can be custom ordered in all colors. Call for more information.
