Clip In Hair Extensions in Detail

Human Hair Clip In Hair Extensions

Human hair clip in extensions, the latest phenomenon in beauty products. Any newcomers to hair extensions may question the need for hair extensions, or indeed, why people wear hair extensions in the first place. The fact of the matter is that very few people are blessed with long, thick, luxurious hair, and clip in hair extensions are a quick and easy way to achieve the desired look to add volume and length.
The reason for using real human hair is to give the hair extensions a natural feel and also to give the wearer complete freedom with hair styling, as human hair is easily styled using typical hair appliances such as straightners and curlers.

Where do Human Hair Extensions Come From?

High quality human hair is usually sourced from India, the reason being that the hair is thick, easily manageable and all start with the same colour making them easier to keep to the same tone when they are processed for colouring. Manufacturing of the hair extensions however is global.
Industrial heavy nations such as China and Indonesia are popular locations for manufacturers due to the low cost of labour. The human hair goes through quite a process before being an end product, which is why they are not cheap.

What happens to the human hair when it is manufactured?
The hair is first sorted into lengths, it is then cleaned and prepared for a process called an acid bath, the acid bath process strips the hair of its natural colour and more than likely strip the hair cuticle too. After this process, the human hair goes through a colouring process dependant on the hair extensions distributors request.
Once the hair itself is ready, it is then sewn together into a weave by machine. The weaves are then cut up and made into either clip in hair extensions or weft hair extensions

Who Wears Clip In Hair Extensions

Previously, hair extensions were only worn by high profile celebrities and models. However, as hair extensions have become more and more accessible, hair extensions are worn by practically anyone.

Different types of Human Hair Extensions

There are many different factors when it comes to the type of hair extensions. First is their application method which are typically applied by clips, glue, tape or sewn. We find that any newcomers are best suited to clip in hair extensions as they are easily removed and easier to care for as you can unclip them and wash them etc.
The next factor is the type of hair used, remy and non-remy hair. Remy hair is hair that still has the hair cuticle still intact. The advantage of having Remy hair is that they are less like likely to tangle, will last longer and generally look healthier. Remy hair however comes at a price, a very expensive price!
Practically all of the hair extensions today are non-remy or perhaps a blend of Remy and non-Remy, despite them being branded as such. Due to misinformation and abuse of the name, the term “Remy Hair Extensions” cannot now be definitely assumed as actual Remy hair.

Hair Extension Colours

As discussed before, hair extension colours are defined by the distributor. Each company has their own colour chart. We base our hair extension colours on the extensive Hairaisers colour range.
We chose the name colour guide for this site for that reason, hair extension colour charts are to only be used as a guide. We feel this, as no batch of hair will ever be the exact same. It is impossible to get the exact tone with human hair time after time. Instead the factories use the colour chart as their guide of what colour to aim for.
Human hair is an organic product, and should be treated as so. If the hair has been mistreated by the donor, then that poor quality will be passed on to the final product. So if you feel your hair extensions are not as they should be, send them back. Unfortunately is not possible to avoid the few poor quality human hair from being processed, but professional hair extension companies know this, and will be willing to replace the product after seeing the hair extensions themselves.

How to Choose the Right Human Hair Extensions

Choosing the Right Hair Extensions

Hairaisers Hair Extensions
How do you choose the right hair extensions for you? Many people ask for the most cost effective hair extensions, but usually the cheaper market of hair extensions do not lasts making them more expensive long term.

Why don’t cheaper hair extensions last?

Cheap hair extensions are typically made from 100% processed human hair, “processed” human hair extensions are basically human hair that has been stripped of its natural cuticle layer and covered in a silicone to prevent the damaged cuticle interlocking with each other causing the hair to matt. Over time, this silicone washes off and the hair will inevitably matt.

What are the cheapest higher quality hair extensions?

To keep costs down, large reputable companies blend genuine Remy hair with processed human to give the hair extensions a longer life. These companies will not usually advertise their hair as Remy as it does not contain 100% of remy hair. However there are many smaller companies out there that will falsely advertise the hair as 100% Remy human hair, this is a growing problem that many of the larger companies are angry at.

What are the best quality hair extensions?

The best type of hair extensions available on the market today are GENUINE virgin Remy hair extensions. This term has been abused by so many sellers. Virgin Remy hair extensions are generally unprocessed. The hair has been cleaned, then sewn to a weft. This hair comes at a price, a very high price. If someone is selling “Cheap 100% Virgin Remy” hair extensions, there’s no such thing.

The general tip is go for a well known and reputable brand, and don’t fall for the false advertising by smaller companies.

What is Remy Hair?

How would you know the difference between remy human hair extensions and regular human hair extensions? The answer is you can’t (unless you have a powerful microscope), only after a while of washing your hair extensions would you KNOW if they are or not. This blog will help distinguish between the two types of human hair extensions.

Remy hair is hair that has been obtained from a single hair donor. The hair cuticles have not been stripped and are “root point correct” aligned in one direction. The vast majority of human hair that is sold in the hair extensions industry go through a process called an “acid-bath” which strips the cuticle layer off the hair. A silicone is placed over the cuticles to give the hair a faux shine and smooth appearance. This silicone wears off when the hair is consistently washed, therefore, the cuticles are disturbed and return back to their unruly state, causing the hair to mat and tangle easily. Remy hair does not mat or tangle because all the cuticles are aligned and intact without the use of silicone.

Remy hair can be sourced from many regions of the world. The most popular type of hair is Indian remy hair. Its texture and colour can be easily matched to the majority of ethnic groups in the world. Remy hair can also be sourced from South America, East Asia and Europe. The origin of the remy hair an individual purchases is not as important as the kind of care that was given to the hair when it was first collected from the donor.

Remy hair is often mistaken for processed human hair as processed hair can feature a smooth, shiny, and healthy appearance, when in fact it has undergone a process to make it appear that way. When remy hair is washed, it will not mat and tangle. Virgin remy hair has not been chemically processed; this hair is raw and natural in other terms. Non-virgin remy hair underwent some sort of chemical processing in order to achieve another colour.

An individual who uses remy hair extensions will experience less matting and tangling than an individual who uses regular human hair extensions. Remy hair also gives a more natural appearance than regular human hair extensions
