In life and modern communication, more and more people realize that Hair extensions and wigs could continue to play an important role in our daily life.

Hair extensions are any artificial hair that is added to one’s naturally growing hair. Hair extensions are made in several different forms with different application techniques.

Types of Hair used in the manufacture of Extensions

Human Hair

Human hair extensions are made from genuine human hair that is paid for and harvested by people, usually young women all over the world.Particularly in China and India.


Hair exension

Human hair extensions can adjust or vary broadly in quality. On the low end of the scale, hair is chemically stripped of its cuticle so that it can be machine processed without regard for direction or root-tip alignment. If the cuticle were left in, the root-tip alignment could become mixed up, the microscopic scales that form the cuticle would be opposed and snag on each other causing tangling. The negative effects of stripping the cuticle are brittleness, reduced protection from sunlight, dryness, salt, chlorine and pollution as well as a tendency to absorb liquids and swell or matt. It is not advisable to color or heat-style this hair.

Hair style

Remi hair describes hair that has not had its cuticle stripped and has at least been partially hand-processed to maintain root-tip alignment. This hair is more expensive but will remain in good condition for much longer than stripped hair. It can also be heat styled and colored. Sadly, this industry is not regulated and many manufacturers will mark products with Remi or Remy, hair that has no cuticle or is even mixed with synthetic materials.

Human hair extension

Apart from the 2 types described above, there is a third type of hair. Virgin hair is hair that has not been chemically treated. It is harvested, sanitized and sold in bulk. Having said that, hair that is in poor condition, such as Split ends, chlorine/salt/UV damaged hair etc. rarely finds it way into this market as the buyers have strict conditions and expectations, therefore eliminating any hair thy deem unfit for sale.

This means raw hair materials also need to be maintained, if you’d like to purchase and apply high-quality hair extension or wigs for a long time then we suggest you do your research.
