Raw Hair Extensions Vs. Virgin Extensions. All You Need To Know
You do it all while being dauntless and fabulous. I firmly believe your hair should be able to not only complement but also ride the waves of your lifestyle. While you may think virgin is the pinnacle of hair extensions, I am here to tell you that there is something better. Here are all the facts you need to join the exclusive raw hair-wearing club.
What is Raw Hair?
It’s all in the name. Raw is exactly as it states, 100% raw, human, utterly unprocessed hair. Raw hair has not been altered by steam, chemical processing, or heat of any kind. It is the highest quality hair extension available and is not always easily accessible.
What Is Virgin Hair?
The more popular of the duo is virgin hair. While also human hair and chemically unprocessed, virgin hair does undergo steaming to create a myriad of textures (e.g., body wave, deep wave, kinky curly, etc.) and is also usually colored.
The Root of the Matter
Raw Hair is harvested from the temple of one single donor in Cambodia, India, and Indonesia, Vietnam, and Europe. Natural appearance and movement allow it to integrate with natural hair seamlessly. All the hair cuticles are aligned in one direction, staving off matting and tangling. This type of hair is double drawn, which ensures longer-lasting bundles with thick ends. It has the added advantage of being colored professionally with minimum damage. Raw hair is the highest of quality and, as such, has no scale.
Though commonly marketed as Brazilian, Peruvian, or Malaysian, all virgin hair originates in China. It is harvested with hair from multiple donors, appears unnatural, and doesn’t move naturally. Despite the cuticles not being aligned, virgin hair blends with natural hair textures, and the bundles are long-lasting and full. Coloring this hair can lead to damage. Virgin Hair is rated on a scale of numbers and letters, e.g., 8A, 10A, where the higher number denotes a higher quality and higher cost.
You may have never heard of raw hair. You are probably gripping your virgin hair fiercely right now, ready to defend your trusted extension. But step out of your comfort zone and explore the fantastic world of raw hair at The Xclus Xperience Inc. You won’t regret it.
