EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HAIR EXTENSION
When customers shop for human hair extensions or weaves, what they are most concerning? First of all, QUALITY. The high quality of human hair products means tangling and shading will not happen, they are easy to maintain, long last and can be styled and colored.
HOW TO MAKE SURE THE HIGH QUALITY IS ACHIEVED WHEN HUMAN HAIR PRODUCTS ARE PRODUCED
1. RAW MATERIALS
The raw materials must be Remy human hair, you may be very familiar with this term because it is often referred to in the market, and it is also one of the most important basic standards of determining premium quality hair products.
Remy human hair is real human hair with intact cuticles. Cuticle is the outermost part of the human hair shaft. It is a protection-layer of your hair shaft, which is very essential for your hair. Without its protection, your hair can be easily damaged. All high-quality hair products have one same key point is the INTACT cuticle of the hair shaft. The intact cuticle makes sure hair products have a long life. Under proper maintenance, the hair products with intact cuticle can last more than half of a year. All hair product manufacturers respect hair material with intact cuticles.
Another key point you need to know is the cuticle of every single hair shaft of a Remy human hair product must face the same direction. This makes sure tangling will not happen during you wear or maintain your hair product.
Poor quality raw materials are also used by some hair product suppliers. To attract customers, some online sellers label their non-Remy hair products as “Remy” or “Virgin”, and then these “Remy hair products” can be sold at a lower price than those true Remy hair products. You must wonder what raw materials they used for production. Some suppliers often mix animal hair or synthetic fibers with their “Remy hair” products. They also use non-Remy hair that is fallen hair usually gathered from India. To achieve the texture likes Remy human hair, non-Remy hair materials are soaked into acid solution for removing the cuticle, then coated with silicone. This coating process makes non-Remy hair material silky, lustrous and tangle-free, but it is just temporary, cannot last for a long time. Because the silicon-layer around the hair shaft can be easily washed off. After that the whole thing is different, the hair becomes dry, stiff and matted, looking like synthetic hair product, can be easily damaged. The acid solution they used in the process of handling hair materials is harmful to the human body, can often cause serious skin irritation and allergies.
What’s even worse is that some companies or brands you are familiar with don’t source their own hair. This irresponsible business behavior makes the whole hair industry worse. Ask any of those hair companies and they’ll say “100% Virgin Remy” and “we have factory in [country]” but won’t be able to provide any proof on its origin. It’s easier to buy hair from other companies who purchased their hair from hair collectors that do the laborious work of traveling great distances in 90+ degree heat for less than $5/day.
2. THE PRODUCTION PROCESS
In the steps of processing hair materials, the first step is to remove the initial color of hair materials, which also calls de-pigmentation. To extract the natural pigment, raw materials are put into oxidant solutions for washing, this process can last 20 - 25 days, depending on the amount of natural pigment needed to be extracted. The slower this process, the less damage to hair materials. To accelerate this process, some hair product manufacturers use harsh chemicals, which will damage the cuticle of the hair shaft.
The second process is pigmentation, which means tone the hair color up to the desired shade. First, pigments are added into a solution that has a constant temperature and PH value, and then, hair materials are submerged into this solution. To measure the variation of hair color in this process, an instrument called color spectrophotometer being used. In these two processes of de-pigmentation and pigmentation, the slower processing of hair materials, the longer life of hair products will have.
