Indian Hair Frequently Asked Questions

We specialize in natural, virgin, remy, full cuticle, 100% real Indian human hair.

Unlike all other extensions and weaves, it comes from one donor. The hair is unprocessed 100% human hair, there is absolutely no artifical or non-human hair mixed in with it. All our cuticles are intact and are in the same direction, preventing tangling and matting. The cuticle layer is still perfectly healthy and intact.

Where does Indian hair come from?

The hair comes from people who donate their hair in the name of prayer. In India, it is very common for people to sacrifice their hair in return for prayers that have been answered by God. The temples in India will cut the hair from the willing devotees, and then auction the hair off to distributors. The proceeds from the auctions will be returned back into the community in various charitable forms.

Why is Indian hair so special?

Indian hair is highly regarded in the hair industry because of its flexibility, durability, and texture. Indian hair is naturally thick and lustrous, so it gives best possible styling and installation options for extensions. The hair is also naturally dark, so it works great with most braiding and weaving applications for women of color. Remy Indian hair goes hand in hand with long lasting quality, so you can rest assured if the hair is guarantied to be Remy Indian hair… our hair is guarantied.

What is Virgin Hair?

Virgin hair is not processed in any way it is 100% natural, so there is no damage to the cuticles. The cuticles protect the hair so it is important that they are intact. Our hair is hand selected to be soft and beautiful, a lot of care is take so that all the cuticle run in the same direction to prevent tangling, all of are virgin hair is Remy. The end result in soft beautiful long lasting hair with lots of body. You will be 100% satisfied with our hair.

What is Remy cuticle hair?

Real Remy cuticle hair is the highest-grade human hair available and comes from one individual. The hair is sectioned and allowed to fall into its natural growing pattern. The hair is then cut and carefully sewn to maintain the natural cuticle direction so matting and tangling are virtually eliminated. Our hair is real Remy Cuticle hair.

What is Single Drawn Hair?

Every hair piece looks like a ponytail made of different lengths of hair. The very short hairs have been removed. For example: a hair piece of 16″ to 19″ inches of Remy quality and single drawn has hair lengths of 16″, 17″, 18″ and 19″. This hair is sold as 18 inches single drawn hair.

What is Double Drawn Hair?

Every hair piece contains only hair of the same length. This makes this type of hair piece also the most expensive one as this procedure is done by hand, not by machine. For example: a hair piece of 20 inches of Remi quality and double drawn has hair lengths of 20″ only. Genuinely about 90% hair will be of 20 inches and weaker section is removed with scissor.

What do the terms “bulk” and “wefted” mean?

Bulk hair is loose hair that is used for braiding and many other hair extension styles. We deliver it tied in a bundle ready for use. Wefted hair is hair used for weaving. It is sewn or bonded (with hair glue) into a track ready for the weaving process.

What is the difference between Machine Weft and hand tied Weft?

Hand tied wefts are made by tying strands of hair around a strong weaving thread, this process is done by hand. Our hand tied wefts are much thinner than machine wefts because of the precision involved, and lay flat on the scalp. Machine wefts are made by sewing strands of hair together with a hair sewing machine.

What is the best way to cut a weft?

Hand tied wefts should never be cut from the top, this is a common mistake made by even experienced hair stylists. If it is cut, then you should seal it with a good glue like nail glue or fabric glue. There is no guarantee that it will not shed if it is cut. Also, one should never sew through top of the weft and it is recommended you sew around the weft. With machine wefts, you can cut where desired. We cannot stress how important this information is, the main reason for wefts shedding is because the weft is not cut properly.

How Much Hair Do I need?

If you are getting a full Braid Weave the average person need about eight ounces of hair some will need more some will need less. It is best to buy two packs to make sure you have enough. You can always use the leftover hair later. if you are using hair over 18″ long you might need another pack. If you are getting tracks one pack is enough for four to five tracks up to 18″ hair length. If you are getting the hair bonded one pack is enough for four to five tracks up to 18″ hair length. If you are getting fusion or micro linking you need to consult your stylist.

What Are Hand Tied Wefts?

Hand tied wefts are done by hand and are much thinner then machine wefts. They will lay flat against your scalp to give you a more natural look and significantly reduce hair bumps caused by bulky wefts . Hand tied wefts come in one long track and the length of the track depends on the length of the hair. All of our wefts are reinforced to prevent shedding.

How Wide is the Weft in Inches?

The width of the wefts depend on the length of the hair. The longer the length the shorter the width… so if you decide to go with longer hair and want to cover more of your head we would suggest 2 or possibly 3 packs of hair. For example, a 16″ weft is around 9 feet long.

Can I color this hair?

Yes, this is 100% virgin human hair which is not processed in any way. So you can color the hair. Once virgin hair is treated in any way, it is no longer virgin. Generally it is advised to make any major color changes after having your extensions applied.

What type of hair care products should I use?

Treat this hair like your own hair. Use good quality shampoo and conditioning products. Conditioning your hair is very important to keep it soft and manageable, so use leave in conditioners. You can also use products like gel and hair spray to keep the curls in place, but make sure to wash your hair and not leave in these products in for a long time.

Do I have to do anything special in the morning?

We advise that you comb your hair every morning. Just bend your head forward and gently brush your hair from the ends towards your scalp. Starting from the ends keeps the pressure off the weft area and is a good way to maintain the longevity of the extensions.

Do I have to do anything special at night?

You must NEVER sleep on wet hair. Sleeping on wet hair is known to matte hair which makes it very difficult to keep them the way you want. Just make sure your hair is completely dry before you go to sleep and you shouldn`t have anything to worry about.

Can I go swimming?

You may go in swimming pools and hot tubs. It is best to wash hair right after swimming. Avoid getting hair in salt water as the salt can take all the moisture out of the hair and it will lead to tangling of the hair. Never braid your hair and go in salt water. It is best to wear it down. Add a spray in conditioner after swimming.

What is the difference between Indian hair and chinese hair?

Indian hair varies in texture and color. The Indian straight hair is not bone straight like Chinese hair but instead has beautiful body wave to it.

How long does it last?

This hair can last for a very long time depending on how you maintain it. Treat it like your own hair and take good care of it for it to last longer. Many hair extension professionals prefer Indian hair because it is beautiful and unprocessed which makes it last longer than any other kind of hair.
