Do you know these hair industry secrets?

1. hair does not come from all over the world

China is the #1 exporter of hair to the US so most hair comes from there or India. So despite their names hair labeled: Brazilian, Peruvian, Malaysian, Mongolian, Polynesian, Eurasian (whatever that is lol) are not actually from those regions of the world. They are names used for marketing purposes. Sounds so exotic right?

2. hair grades are not a real grading system

5A, 6A, 7A, 8A, 9A is not a real hair grading system. It is a marketing tool Chinese vendors created to sell hair extensions to the U.S. There is no governing body or system that grades hair extensions.

3. what is virgin hair exactly

Most hair on the market is labeled as VIRGIN but in order for hair to really be considered Virgin it must be free from any chemical processes and not a mix of sythethic or animal hairs. There is a steam process that is used on RAW hair to give it different textures and that is perfectly fine, however issues arise when the hair is chemically treated with silicone or acid to mask poor quality. Ever had hair that smelled like corn chips?
