It is much thicker compared to Peruvian hair and blends extremely well with all African American hair textures.

Q: What’s the differences between Brazilian virgin hair, Peruvian virgin hair, Malaysian virgin hair and Indian Remy hair?

A: Both Virgin and Remy hair are 100% Natural Human Hair. The differences is the donor of Remy Hair previously dyed, permed, or bleached the hair. 

While Virgin Hair donors don't use any chemicals what so ever. With Virgin Hair the cuticles are intact going in the same direction. 

Remy Hair is collected from the donor with the cuticles still intact but arranged to go in the same direction. 

Also there can be a difference in the hair's reaction to water, heat or air drying. For longer lasting curls on any of the hair, it is recommended to roller set the hair with a hair setting lotion. Be sure to read our hair care section for instructions on the care for your hair extensions.  

Q: How long does the hair last?

A: Our hair extensions can last for a very long time normally 18 to 24 months or longer. Depending on how you maintain it and if the hair has been repeatedly dyed. Treat it like your very own hair and take very good care of it. For it to last longer!

We provide our customers with 8A or 9A grade, because it is beautiful and better quality which makes it last longer.

Q: Why are my hair extensions getting tangled?

A: Your hair extensions can tangle due to dryness, oil & dirt build-up, salt water, chlorine and not combing out your hair daily. 

(Please use a wig brush or wide tooth comb on your hair extensions daily)

Make sure to wash & condition your hair at least once a week, twice a week is better. Use hydrating drops or consult your stylist for more help.

Q: Why does the colors of the extensions look slightly different than the pictures shown?

A: Different screen monitors have different displays. Our hair extensions come in 1B and 2. Sometimes the color may be slightly off if ordering color processed extensions. Please use a color guide or ask for help from a hair dresser for the colors code as to the desired color you would like to use.

Q: How to tell human hair from synthetic hair?

A: Human hair has natural proteins, it is easy to tell by doing a burn test on a small section of the hair. Human hair will be ash like, which will go away after pinching. Human hair will also show white smoke.

Synthetic hair will melt slowly into a sticky ball instead of burning, it will smell like a strange rubber and show black smoke. 

Human hair also may have a few gray hairs and split ends, this is normal and not a quality problem.
