You see them everywhere; they allow celebrities to go from short hair to greater lengths right away. Some look awful while others blend so well that nobody would ever suspect; but have you ever ever wondered where the hair used in extensions comes from? Is it from human sources? What kind of process does it undergo before it is attached as an extension? This article will address some of these questions and offer a few other insights into the world of the hair extension industry that will interest the average, information seeking, consumer.

There are three basic categories of hair that is used for hair extensions.

• Synthetic – Hair made from synthetic fibers which are less likely to tangle together with your natural hair but is very susceptible to melting resulting from heat from hot dryers and irons.

• Animal – In particular, the animal hair that is widely used for extensions comes from the under-belly of the Yak. It’s claimed that this sort of hair, due to its texture and look, has the most suitable structure to be used as a match for chemically relaxed and treated African-Ethnic hair. One major drawback is that from there are those who will experience or develop allergic reactions to the Yak hair.

• Human – This hair may come from a variety of geographical regions. A word of caution: There are companies that may claim that the product you’re receiving is from a human source but on final analysis, it could also be shown to contain animal hair or synthetic fibers, as well. The reason this is allowed to occur is due to the technicality that if a group of hair joined to form an extension strand contains at the least one human strand in the combination, by legal standards it can be marketed as human. So, when researching where your particular extensions come from, always make sure that you’re guaranteed that what you might be buying is 100% human hair.

Now that we have categorized what the essential types of hair extensions are product of, we will look a little bit further into how the human hair, utilized in hair extensions, is collected.

Human hair collected for extensions might be categorized as:

• Remy: Meaning that all of the hairs still have their cuticle layers intact with each strand faced in the identical direction (this creates a natural fall to the extension, keeps tangling to a minimum, and allows light reflectivity for shine). Ideally the donor of the sort of hair has a protracted braid cut from their head so as to preserve the standard of the cuticle layers following the identical direction. Due to the care taken when gathering Remy hair, it tends to be costlier to purchase but is the most desirable and suitable hair to use.

• Non-Remy: Cuticle layers usually are not aligned in the same directional flow. These strands are usually collected as naturally shed, fallen hair that is collected from fernandoallende news hairbrushes. As you possibly can imagine, this confused mixture of hair could be very prone to tangling and matting due to the cuticle layers of the individual hairs not following in the same directions. To rectify this, these hairs are often subjected to acid treatments that remove the cuticle layers from the hair shafts, leaving behind a product that’s weakened and dull looking. A silicone is then added to the hair to make the dull, stripped hair shinier. Over time this silicone erodes and washes away, leaving the Non-Remy tresses in their post-chemically treated, compromised condition. Being of lesser quality, this hair is less cost prohibitive than that of Remy hair but typically, produces a less desirable result.
