What is “virgin” hair?

Virgin hair is hair in its most natural form. It looks natural and behaves like your own natural hair. That is why it blends beautifully with your own hair. Also, if you take care of this hair just like your own hair, it lasts for a very long time, sometimes even a year or more.

What does “weft” mean?

Usually the type of hair used in weaving hair extensions method is “wefted hair”. Hair “weft” pieces are made by sewing hair together on the root side of the hair and keeping it freely hanging on the tip side, making it look like a hair curtain. Hair wefts are made either by hand (Hand Tied Weft) or by using specialized sewing machines (Machine Weft). Hand-tied wefts are thinner, but have limitations because they cannot be cut without unraveling and falling apart of the hair at the cut ends. Hence, for hand-tied wefts the cut ends need to be sealed by applying glue. On the other hand machine wefts are a bit thicker, but since its stitches are highly reinforced, the weft can be cut at any place without unraveling. Typically, it is stylists who prefer one weft over the other. As far as consumers are concerned, both types of wefts can give them the desired look and result.

Can I cut your weft?

Yes. Our wefts are “machine wefts” and are well reinforced. Hence, our wefts can be cut without any unraveling.

What is the width of a weft?

Since, wefts are sold by weight, how wide a weft is depends on the actual length of the hair – the longer the hair, the shorter the width of the weft. Therefore, in order to cover a larger area of your head you should probably purchase 2 or 3 bundles of hair (a 16 inch weft will be approx. 9 feet long).

How much hair should I purchase?

Bonding: 1 bundle of hair will be enough for 5-6 layers.

Weaving: for a full sew in weave we generally recommend buying 2-3 bundles of hair. Since hair does not expire, it is always better to purchase some extra hair. For hair over 18” of length we recommend purchasing a 3-4 bundles and save any extra hair for later. The main rule should be: longer hair equals shorter weft width. Also, take into consideration that the number of bundles required also depends on the style and volume you desire. For example if you want a celebrity weave with a lot of volume and layers, you will need 3 to 4 packs of hair.

Can my virgin hair be colored?

Yes, you can color the hair. Our virgin hair of premium quality has never been chemically treated and it can therefore handle the coloring process very well. However, once you color or process virgin hair, it will no longer be virgin. We therefore recommend consulting a professional if you wish to color your new hair.

Which professional hair care products work best?

As with your own hair, you should use quality shampoo and conditioner. If you want to keep the hair soft and easy to manage, conditioning is important. Use a deep conditioner once a week and try avoiding oily or heavy styling products. If you are using hair spray or gel to maintain the curls, make sure you wash it out often, as those hair products can make your hair appear limp and oily after a while.

How long will my new hair last?

The longevity of our virgin hair depends on how well the hair is maintained. Our hair will last for a long time, and – as with your own hair – will be healthier and stronger when you take good care of it. Due to its natural strength and durability, virgin hair will last longer than any other product available in the market of hair extensions.

Hair Care: When it comes to virgin hair, you have to care for your extensions just like your own natural hair. You need to brush your hair frequently. You need to shampoo and condition your hair regularly, especially if you use a lot of hair products. Deposits from the hair products, if not washed off on a regular basis, can degrade the quality of the hair (just like your own hair) and combined with the use of heat can affect the smooth natural feeling and behavior of the virgin hair. If you maintain your virgin hair extension properly, you will have sleek, smooth, tangle free beautiful natural looking hair for a very long time and will be able to reuse the hair many times after.
