FAQ

Where is the best virgin hair sourced?

The best hair source hands down is from India. Hair from India is usually fine, silky, and wavy. Indian hair has a different look and feel than other sources of hair extensions. For example, hair from the Southeast Asia region is thicker and straighter than Indian hair. In any case, be sure to investigate the hair company you choose and make sure they guarantee their product and have a replacement or client care policy in place.

What is Brazilian hair?

The trend has been Brazilian hair recently, and many companies advertise that they sell Brazilian virgin hair. None of the hair actually comes from Brazilian women as there is no hair-collecting culture in Brazil. Hair is exported to Brazilian manufacturers from India where it is then processed and packaged as authentic Brazilian hair.

What is Malaysian hair?

Malaysian hair is either Indian or Chinese Non-Remy human hair that has been acid-washed and coated with silicone. This hair does not come from Malaysian women.

What is Peruvian hair?

Peruvian hair is either Indian or Chinese Non-Remy hair that has been acid-washed, coated with silicone, and labeled Peruvian hair. Peru does not have a hair-collecting culture.

What is Mongolian hair?

Mongolian hair can only be purchased from China. It’s Indian or Chinese Non-Remy hair that has been acid washed, coated with silicone, and labeled Mongolian hair.

What is Russian hair or Russian Federation hair?

If the Russian hair is a natural color and priced below $100 per 18-inch piece, then the hair is actually Indian Non-Remy Hair.
If the Russian hair is a lighter shade, then it’s Indian Remy hair that has been bleached or dyed to replicate Caucasian hair. While there is some virgin hair collected in Russia, the supply is very limited.

What is Cambodian hair?

Authentic virgin Cambodian hair exists, but it’s very rare and expensive. Cambodian hair is thicker and darker than Indian hair and usually has a slight wave. Like Indian hair, it has split ends. If you purchase the hair directly from Cambodia, expect to pay no less than $150 for an 18-inch piece. If you pay cheaper retail prices, you are not purchasing authentic virgin Cambodian hair.

What is machine-wefted hair?

Machine-wefted hair is more known by the term “tracks,” or “weave”. The process includes stitching together strands of hair with a sewing machine. This is common in the industry for ease of use.

What is hand-tied hair?

Hand-tied hair is a method to bind hair together through hand sewing. The advantage of hand-tied wefts is that they are very thin compared to machine-wefted hair.

What is Yaki hair?

Yaki hair mimics relaxed or pressed African-American hair. Manufacturers sometimes use a chemical process to make the coarse texture of yaki hair. This is the cheapest and most damaging way to produce it. A more expensive method is to secure the hair in big perm rods, wrap a textured cloth around it, and steam it. This gives the hair a coarse texture with much less damage. Here at LX Virgin Hair, our yaki hair is known as relaxed straight hair, and it is produced through steam-perming.

How do I choose the best authentic virgin hair?

Aside from buying from us, you should find a company that sells Remy human hair. If the hair is being marketed as virgin hair but costs less than $100 for 20 inches, it is actually Non-Remy fake virgin hair. This hair has been heavily processed and most likely does not come from the same donor, meaning the quality is all over the place. The process you should go through when purchasing your hair will be very different at an authentic dealer of virgin hair. They will suggest you match your pieces instead of just giving you a number of bundles. The customer service representatives should know where the hair is harvested from, how it is processed, and what maintenance is required to keep it looking stellar. If you’re buying online, call the company and ask if they can match the pieces for you to ensure a quality looking install.

Why is my authentic virgin hair dull—shouldn’t it be silky and shiny?

Of course not! Remy human hair directly out of the head of a donor is usually not silky and shiny. If there are no heavy conditioners applied, then it’s just virgin human hair. Our process is an untouched authentic process so it will be in the naturalist state when you buy it.

Are all authentic virgin hair extension pieces different?

This should be the case! No two humans are the same, therefore no two bundles of hair will be the exact same either. Our extensions have natural variations in color and texture just as they are in real life.

How can I check if I’ve purchased authentic virgin hair extensions?

There are six ways to see if the hair you purchased is virgin: You should see split ends. If the hair does not have split ends, this means the hair has been washed and the cuticles have been removed. You should be able to feel the cuticles. When running your fingers through the hair downward, it should be smooth. If you reverse and run your fingers upward, the hair should feel rough.—these are the cuticles. If the hair is smooth both ways, the cuticles were stripped by an acid wash and you’ve purchased fake virgin hair. The ends of the hair will generally be lighter than the roots. This is more prominent in Indian Remy virgin hair because many women work outside in India. This won’t be as common in hair from Southeast Asia and China, where the sun is not as strong. The moustache/beard at the weft is short. The moustache/beard is the hair that has been stitched to the track and reversed so the hair does not shed. In virgin hair, the moustache/beard must be very short to avoid tangling. If the moustache or beard is long, the cuticles will catch on the long flowing hair. The hair is not coated with silicone. If the hair has a shiny residue on it, then it is silicone-coated Non-Remy hair. Remy virgin hair doesn’t have this coating. You should be able to feel the cuticles. When running your fingers through the hair downward, it should be smooth. If you reverse and run your fingers upward, the hair should feel rough.—these are the cuticles. If the hair is smooth both ways, the cuticles were stripped by an acid wash and you’ve purchased fake virgin hair.
