Basic Information about Human Hair Extensions

Human hair extensions are created from real human hair, which is harvested from individuals or paid for, commonly young women, all around the world. They may vary widely in term of quality. On hair’s low-medium end of its scale, it is substantially removed from its cuticle. It might be processed by machine with no regard for root-tip alignment or direction. If its cuticle were gone but its root-tip alignment muddled up, the microscopic levels that construct the cuticle will be countered and then snag on each other resulting tangling.  Some cons of removing that cuticle are brittleness, decreased protection from sunlight, salt, dryness, pollution, chlorine and pollution as well as a predisposition to absorb swell and liquids or matt.  It’s not recommended to heat-style or color this hair.

Remy (as known as Remi) hair is the hair, which hasn’t had its cuticle removed and has in any case been partly hand-processed in order to keep root-tip alignment.  This kind of hair is much more costly but will stay in fine condition for longer time if compared to stripped hair. It is also able to be colored and heat-styled.  Unfortunately, this industry isn’t regulated properly, which results numerous manufacturers marking as Remy or Remi, hair that doesn’t have cuticle, even confused with synthetic.

Hair Extensions

Another primary scale of measuring the tape in hair extensions quality is the renowned ‘percentage full length’. The average quality on hair that is around eighteen inches (45 centimeters) long might have twenty percents of the strands measuring eighteen inches (45 centimeters) a further forty percents measuring from fourteen to sixteen inches (around 35 to 40 centimeters) and the other forty percents measuring six to twelve inches (about 15 to 30 centimeters).

Usually, colors of human hair are described by a color scale that varies among numerous manufacturers. However, we can find them in a very broad range of both psychedelic and natural colors.
