ToIt has been revealed that a lot of so called 100% human hair extensions that come out from China are not quite all what they seem.
How about yours? Well there is a saying “you get what you pay for.”
Goats are losing their locks so that humans can have extensions.
According to a BBC report some villages are finding it difficult to make money on the prices that they have been selling the human hair for.
Being very inventive they have found away round this.
By mixing goat’s hair in with the human hair when they are making the extensions.
Let’s be honest to expect to purchase an individual 100% human hair extension for only a couple of dollars apiece.
Does seem odd and very cheap for so called 100% human hair.
Would You Know The Difference ?
A Silicon Coat.
You will tend to find when touching low priced extensions that they will have a smooth finish.
This is due to the fact that the hair has a silicon finish.
Because silicon helps to disguise if there are any false fibre’s. Or even goats hair mixed in with the human hair.
In the so called 100% human hair extension.
The problem is that after several times of washing the silicon coating will wear away.
And it is at this point you will find that the hair will tend to matt or tangle easily and be very difficult to comb out.
This could be due to several reasons.
- Not 100% remy hair is being used. This means that the hair cuticles are not all going in the same direction.
- Therfore the cuticles of each hair will catch against each other.
- The extensions are a mix of human hair and fibre.
- Or human hair and goat’s hair.
- During the chemical de-coloring process to strip the hairs natural color quickly.
- A harsh chemical or acid is used.
- The harshness of the chemical will also strip most if not all of the cuticle from the hair.
The problem with this is that the hair cuticle is needed to prevent friction.
Whilst also seal in moisture and protect the hair from the elements and environmental damage.
Good Quality Human Hair Extensions Are 100% Remy Hair.
This is a method of bonding human hair to keep roots and ends in the same direction.
So keeping all the hairs cuticle’s properly aligned in relation to their neighbouring hair’s.
As this way the cuticles of the hair strands don’t get caught against each other. Which means that the hair remains altogether softer and silkier.
That is why real 100% remy human hair extensions are basically tangle free.
To keep the hair in tip top condition the hair is processed slowly over many days during the chemical de-coloring process.
Don’t Bleat About It.
Hair from an ethical source is expensive to purchase.
And high quality none chemically treated hair even more so for the company concerned.
After which they have the procedure of the coloring and the making of the hair extensions before pricing them on for the final customer.
With this in mind if you are considering hair extensions and you want them to look natural, be easy to manage and last.
I would suggest that you look for 100% Remy Human Hair Extensions.
