Sources of Hair
All our extensions are custom made from virgin Russian unprocessed hair, only the absolute best quality, handpicked Russian hair is used. We purchase our virgin hair directly from Russian hair sources in the Ukraine and carefully make each and every Russian hair extensions by hand.But to make it more understandable for our clients we would like to expand a little more on what kind of hair is out there.There are different grades of human hair used for hair extension; Chinese hair and Indian hair are the most common types. The reason for this is very simple - it's readily available in large quantities and cheap to buy. However Chinese and Indian hair are often very thick and coarse.
Tests have proven the following:
TEST FOR RUSSIAN HAIR vs. CHINESE HAIR
''Asian hair is typically soaked in an acid solution to wear down the hair to appear thinner resembling Caucasian hair. This method is always hard on the hairs integrity and will only last a few days or weeks before it matts.
The same test of running damp fingers up and down the strands of hair to test for friction applies. The friction is minimal and feels very similar testing up and down the strands.
Under a microscope it becomes clear how much thicker each Asia hair is compared to Caucasian hair.''
TRUE TEST FOR RUSSIAN HAIR vs. INDIAN HAIR
''Inspect the hair closely. Blonde Indian hair always has a very few black hairs running through.When Indian hair is dried with a blow dryer it becomes more "puffy" than Russian hair.Bleach a thin strand of hair. The Russian hair will become lightest on the ends. Indian hair will become lightest at the roots.At least 45% of all long Indian hair has split ends.Dampen the hair, run fingers up the hair, then down. Unprocessed Russian hair will have a lot of friction when the fingers are run in an upward direction. Indian processed hair will have the same feel whichever way the fingers are run.''
Because of all the facts shown above we never use Asian or Indian hair and instead only use the finest quality Russian Virgin Hair.
Russian Virgin hair is soft to the touch, full of lustre and retains its vitality and elasticity after many months such that it can be reused again and again whilst still maintaining a superior quality. Once you try this hair you will be astonished at how soft and beautiful your hair looks you will never want anything else.
