On the Human hair extension hunt?
Investing in Indian Remy hair Weaves or wigs is a very important decision to make. You want to get the best value for your money and of course you do not want to be scammed out of your hard-earned cash by purchasing cheap knockoffs from unscrupulous hair vendors. In this article I want to tell you about Virgin Indian Hair.
What is Virgin Indian Hair?
During the initial stage of my hair extension journey, I used to believe that
- Brazilian Hair came from Brazil
- Peruvian Hair came from Peru
- Indian Hair came from India and so on!
Really funny! Right?
It is said that….. “a little learning is a dangerous thing”… so after many hair extension fails, I finally did my research and came up with some very interesting information. The only people in the world who donate their hair are the Indians. Through religious practices, some Indians go to temples to have their head shorn. This hair is collected and sold to hair vendors. The hair is sorted into categories as Brazilian, Peruvian, Malaysian and Cambodian etc. The category it is placed in depends on the type, quality and grade of the hair. As you might expect, the finer hair gets graded as Peruvian and so on. Indian hair is almost perfect for people of African American origin.
Virgin Indian hair otherwise called Temple Hair is hair from the temples in India. It is unprocessed human hair that has never been chemically treated. When you purchase Virgin Indian hair, you can be assured that you are getting the best hair available on the market in its natural form. It was never permed, colour treated or bleached. All the cuticles are intact as the hair flows in on direction, this means it will not tangle. Each one of these bundles of hair might have come from the head of a single donor making it a single drawn hair or from two donors, making it double drawn hair. It is guaranteed that this hair has longevity, quality and beauty.
Caring for Virgin Indian Hair
You will have to take care of your virgin hair in the same way you would take care of your own hair…..In my case, better than you would your own hair! You will have to wash it at least once each week using moisturizing shampoos and conditioners that are pH balanced. Also, use hair products which will keep it soft and help it retains its moisture, remember it is not growing from your scalp so it is not getting the natural oils it would get. Finally, refrain from using too much heat on your Virgin Indian Hair, it will not last as long as it could if you do. Try to dry it naturally after washing. Research good products for your hair, Some products weigh the hair down leaving it looking dull and lifeless and also contribute to tangling. Try not to use product with alcohol and as a rule I do not use oil sheen sprays! In my next article I will help you chose the best products for your Virgin Indian Hair.
Don’t get tricked in paying a lot of money for low quality hair, or hair being passed off as virgin, which is not virgin at all. Buy from reputable vendors and still ask questions to determine where they sourced their hair. Some vendors provide brochures that give information about the hair and also hair care information. Take advantage of these. Until next time….take care!
