How Do You Know If You Are Getting the Best Quality Human Hair Weaves?

Shopping for hair can be a challenge!  With prices continuing to increase due to high demand, you need to be selective of what you purchase.  So many companies claim to sell human hair.  Unfortunately many of these shops sell hair that is human hair mixed with animal hair.  A good indicator is when you see very low prices from the norm.  This usually indicates that the hair may not be 100% human.  Here are some industry tips that will help as you navigate through the many hair choices today.

Remy/Virgin Remy

Many stores now use the word Remy for their product.  It is important to note that Remy means specifically that all the hair cuticles have not been stripped.  This process allows for the hair to lie in its natural position making for the most natural looking hair extension.  The hair is expensive and is collected as a ponytail, donated from a woman’s head, so it is intact, from one donor, and full length.  This explains why the hair does vary slightly from bundle to bundle.   Virgin Remy is hair that is untouched or unprocessed.  To maintain the high quality of this hair it should only be steam processed without the use of any harsh chemicals.

 Brazilian, Malaysian and Peruvian

These descriptions are common in the hair industry but they do not necessarily indicate this is where they were collect.  Brazilian hair is more representative of the texture, a thick and wavy texture, holds color and curls very well and is soft and smooth.  Our International Collection is representative of this hair.  Malaysian Hair is shiny, the curls and waves are steam set so they will last.  Malaysian hair is thick loves a leave-in conditioner.  Our New York Remi Collection is representative of this hair.  Peruvian hair is more coarse and thicker than the Brazilian and Malaysian hair so will blend well with Caucasian hair textures and African-American relaxed hair textures.  Our Pure Remi Collection is representative of this hair.

Online/ Corner Stores

Do your homework when shopping online or at the corner store.  Check the stores ratings.  Ask how long they have been in business and check to see their knowledge of the product.  It is a good indicator that you can trust shopping with a company that has been in the business for an extensive amount of time.  Understand that you get what you pay for and high quality hair is in high demand so can be very expensive.

Human hair is expensive so by mindful of what you are purchasing.  Real human hair weaves will last longer when cared for properly and look nicer than those hair extensions that are mixed with synthetic or animal hair.  That is not to say that you cannot get a great look with lesser quality or synthetic hair.  Just understand that you will need to spend more time on upkeep as well as replace the hair sooner than with a higher quality product.
