Its an old hype to some, but there are all kinds of weaves ranging from your Synthethic much cheaper blends to the more expensive, Indian hair. Virgin Indian Hair is not be confused with Remi/Remy packaged hair that is sold at the beauty supply store. This hair isnt sold in a fancy packet or box. The Remy/Remi hair that is sold in the beauty supply stores is hair is good quality hair that has been processed for texture and color, that is why you can buy it in 1, 1B, 2, 4 and other color blends. It is not VIRGIN or in its rare form. Personally, being a self proclaimed expert in weaves and quality hair extensions… I fancy the more expensive, quality hair. Professionally, I recommend that my clients get quality hair if they are going to wear a sew in for any long duration of time, simple because you want the style to last and the hair to look like new even if the sew-in is a few weeks old. I’ve been wearing and doing hair for over 5 years and I’ve had my run-ins with different brands and types of hair over the entire course of my life. Ive had my share of matted napes and ratty weaves. When I was a resident of Atlanta, I was privledged enough to work with some some great people at Sunny’s Hair and Wigs. It was a great time for me where I learned some trade secrets with some of the industies best. I was also given the ablility to be a consultant to some of Atlanta’s elite and provide my advise and expertise of various hair weaving techniques and product demonstrations. The opportunity started off as an non-paying position but we were given a hair stipend, which enabled me to choose any of the quality hair in the store to wear. So of course that’s where my love for Indian Hair sprang into full force and I have been spoiled every since. Recently, relocating to North Florida i havent found any actual shops that retail the hair and not too many woman in the city wear Indian hair, at least I haven’t seen any. So I’ve been relying on my resources in Atlanta to keep a sistah hooked up.
Let me give you a little history on Virgin Indian Hair:
This hair is normally obtained from India and other parts of the world. India is a country dominated with a huge religious population of Hindus. Hinduism is a religion consisting of various myths and beliefs in the name of faith. One such belief in Hinduism is sacrificing ones hair in the name of god. Donating hair to god is an ancient practice which has been going on for centuries in India. Hair, for most people, is what defines their physical beauty and their appearance.
Wavy 14-16 inches
In my opinion, It’s the best type of hair you can get in the world. Its def not the cheapest. It gives you a natural free flowing look. Its free from synthetic or plastic fibers that you would find in some pre-packaged hair wefts. It doesn’t mat up, you can reuse it if you desired. Its soft and not shiny looking, it easy to maintain because its not hair that needs to be heavily styled. Once you start down the indian hair path is kind of hard to go back to Milkway and Premium Now, unless you are doing a quickweave or short term weave.
