Different Hair Types, That Exist...
About the different hair types….
What different hair types are available ...and where does it all come from?
***European Hair*** This different hair type term "genuine European hair" is often used in connection with wigs & hair extensions in order to give them a perceived higher value...
But do you really believe that there are great numbers of European women willing to have their beautiful long hair cut off! (coincidentally of the exact color needed and in continuous supply!) in order to supply the many hair extension companies? Neither do I.
If there were large numbers of European women ready to have their their different hair type cut off, could you really believe that their hair had not already had some sort of chemical treatment?
This would automatically make their hair unsuitable for subsequent use in wigs & hair extensions. If it really were available in all the quantities needed, natural blonde hair is genetically very thin.
Could you really believe that this different hair type would then be suitable for use in wigs & hair extensions to provide healthy-looking volume for others? I don't think so...
Chinese hair is very often used for wigs & hair extensions, but this does not mean it is necessarily very suitable for the job.
Chinese hair is considerably thicker than European hair; it is naturally dark black and, unlike European hair, has a circular cross-section.
To prepare this different hair type for use in wigs & hair extensions, it must first be made thinner. To make the hair thinner, it is placed in an acid bath. This almost completely destroys the cuticle making the hair brittle and dull.
The shine must be restored to the hair. So it is coated with a silicon layer. This gives the hair an impressive sheen. But not for long, because after a few washes, the silicon layer is removed and the hair becomes dull and brittle again.
Chinese hair is suitable for use in some wigs and hairpieces because wigs and hairpieces are generally cleaned with dry shampoo, so the silicon layer remains intact and the hair keeps its lovely sheen. Chinese hair is very suitable for wigs and hairpieces, but for high-grade products, it is definitely not the best solution!
***Brushed (fallen) Indian Hair***Because of its same genetic origin the basic structure of Indian hair is very similar to that of European hair.
Indian hair is of exceptional quality and Indian women rarely go to salons for chemical treatment of any kind. This type of hair type might lead you to the conclusion that all Indian hair is ideal for wigs & hair extensions... but there are a few additional qualifications!
Believe it or not, hundreds of millions of women of all ages collect their hair every day after brushing it. This includes dark hair, gray hair, and hair of all lengths and thickness. This hair is extremely cheap to purchase because theresult of this method of collection is, of course, a mass of mixed up hair aligned in different directions. Because of the mixed direction of the cuticles, the hair has to be subjected to an aggressive acid process in order to remove the cuticle in an attempt to prevent subsequent tangling.
Many hair companies specialize in purchasing this type of hair and subjecting it to this acidizing process.
However, because of the mixture of different hairs in this mass and because some areas are particularly oily or dirty, it is very often impossible to fully remove all the cuticles. To give this acidized and now damaged hair a healthy appearance once again, the hair is dipped in silicon to make it shine and tocover up any cuticles that were not removed in the acid bath.
The silicon also adds weight to the hair, helping it fetch a better price on the market, since hair is generally sold by weight. The standard of this hair is acceptable for the needin wigs and toupees since these items are usually dry-cleaned and are separate to your own hair.
But what happens if wigs & hair extensions are made with this type of hair? (Where this hair is directly mixed in with your own hair.)
...To begin with the hair is beautiful, shiny and brushable... ...after a few washes, however, the silicon layer starts to wash out...slowly the hair becomes duller and loses its sheen. It becomes brittle and starts to break... any cuticle originally covered by the silicon will become exposed and present a real threat of tangling and matting with your own hair.With every wash this condition will become worse...
This different hair type is not the best solution for use in wigs & hair extensions!
The Solution: ***Remy Hair***Actually, because of its wonderful quality, Indian hair does provide the solution but with a more specialized hair harvesting method.
Remy Hair is Indian hair that is collected with all cuticles perfectly aligned in the same direction. There are certain cultural traditions in India when women cut off their hair, providing a natural market. This is how Remy Hair is collected, giving you the best possible solution.
The cuticle layer of this hair is still healthy and intact since it is rare for Indian girls to visit hair salons for chemical treatment. Weaving the hair into a plait ensures that it is all aligned in one direction. The hair is homogeneous in color and thickness. This precious and high quality hair provides the best solution for high-quality wigs & hair extensions.
