1 -Where does Brazilian Braids or
hair come from ?5
- What is Single Drawn Hair?
The hair comes from people who donate
their hair in the name of prayer. In India, it is very common for people to
sacrifice their hair in return for prayers that have been answered by
their God. The
Temples in India will cut the hair from the willing devotees, and then auction
the hair off to distributors. The proceeds from the auctions will be returned
back into the community In various charitable forms. Until recently, many end
users thought that the hair is coming from Brazil, but in reality it does not.
Brazilians are actually buying hair from India. We are one of the rare
companies in India that has the proper knowledge on how to correctly
manufacture with Indian human Hair, permanent artificial deep curly or "molado"
curly for Europe or Brazil.
2 - Why is Indian hair so
Indian hair is highly regarded in the hair
industry because of its flexibility, durability, and texture. Indian hair is
naturally thick and lustrous, so it gives the best possible styling and
installation options for extensions. The hair is also naturally dark, so it
works great with most braiding and weaving applications for women of color, but
works for everyone. Remy Indian hair goes hand in hand with long lasting
quality, so you can rest assured if the hair is guaranteed to be Remy Indian
hair. All of our hair is guaranteed.
3 - What is Virgin Hair?
Virgin hair is not processed in any way- it is 100%
natural, so there is no damage to the cuticles. The cuticles protect the hair
so it is important that they are intact. Our hair is hand selected to be soft
and beautiful. A lot of care is taken so that all the cuticle remains in the
same direction to prevent tangling. All of our virgin hair is Remy. The end
result in soft beautiful long lasting hair with lots of body. You will be 100%
satisfied with our hair, guaranteed!
4 - What is Remy cuticle
Real Remy cuticle hair is the highest-grade
human hair available and comes from one individual. The hair is sectioned and
allowed to fall into its natural growing pattern. The hair is then cut And
carefully sewn to maintain the natural cuticle direction so matting and
tangling are virtually eliminated. Our hair is real Remy Cuticle
Every hair piece looks
like a ponytail made of different lengths of hair. The very short hairs have
been removed. For example: a hair piece of 16" to 19" inches of Remy quality
and single drawn * Has hair lengths of 16", 17", 18" and 19". All hair is in
the same direction because it all came from the head of a single donor.
6 - What is Double
Every hair piece contains only hair of
the same length. This procedure is done by hand, not by machine. For example: a
hair piece of 20 inches of Remy quality and double drawn has hair lengths of
20" only. It contains no hair shorter than that. In non-Remy hair all the hair
is not in one direction this kind of hair is used for manufacturing paint
brushes or hair for dolls.
7 - What do the terms "bulk" and
Bulk hair is loose hair that is used
for braiding and many other hair extension styles. We deliver it tied in a
bundle ready for use. Wefted hair is hair used for weaving. It is sewn or
bonded (with hair glue) into a track ready for the weaving process.
What is the difference between machine weft and hand tied weft?
Hand tied wefts are made by tying strands of hair around a strong
weaving thread, this process is done by hand. Machine wefts are made by sewing
strands of hair together With a hair sewing machine. In Machine weft, there is
double wefting (normal, usual wefting) and the new single weft, sometimes
called thin weft or light weft
9 - What is the best way to cut a
The proper way to cut a weft is from the hair side, to
the sewn edge, and not the other way around. That way you can follow the hair
"path" and assure yourself a proper division. It is also recommended to place a
single drop of glue at the cut ends to avoid fraying or
10 - How much hair Do I
If you are getting a full Braid Weave the
average person need about six to eight ounces of hair some will need more some
will need less. It is best to buy two packs to make sure you have enough. You
can always use the leftover hair later. If you are using hair over 18" or
longer, you might need an additional pack. If you are getting tracks, one pack
is enough for four to five tracks up to 18" hair length. If you are getting the
hair bonded, one pack is enough for four to five tracks up to 18" hair length.
If you are getting fusion or "micro linking" you need to consult your stylist.
11 - Why Choose
Hand Tied Wefts?
Hand tied wefts are done by hand.
They will lay flat against your scalp to give you a more natural look and
significantly reduce hair bumps caused by bulky wefts . Hand tied wefts come in
one long track and the length of the track depends on the length of the hair.
All of our wefts are reinforced to prevent shedding.There are 2 types of hand
tied weft, 8 thread size or micro 3 thread size, which is preferred amongst
stylists as well as those that wear them.
12 - How Wide is the Weft in
The width of the wefts depend on the length
of the hair. The longer the length, the shorter the width... so if you decide
to go with longer hair and want to cover more of your head we would suggest 2
or possibly 3 packs of hair. For example, a 16" weft is around 9 feet long.
Usually the pack weight is 100 grms, but some people require 4 oz (ounces) so
we also offer 113 gm bundles in the USA and most english spoken languages

How long do hair extensions
The longevity of hair extensions is based on the
care provided by the individual. Usually, hair extensions last 3-6 months,
although we have customers that have worn their same hair extensions for over a
year! Also, some customers have their extensions taken out temporarily and
re-applied as human hair is much more durable than synthetic. A regular visit
to your stylist is not a bad idea to extend the life of your hair

this only be done with the darker colors. If coloring is performed, it is

while holding the top part to keep it from shedding or stretching. Be careful
not to pull too hard when combing your hair.
Can I wash, shampoo and
blow-dry the hair?
Yes. Since all of our hair is
human, it can be treated like your own hair. We suggest waiting to shampoo for
4-5 days after installing extensions. We suggest some air drying, and using a
diffuser so the heat does not cause damage the hair bonding materials.
Typically, hair will dry out sooner when using blow dryers or heat

Hair should not
lose its wave in the rain or swimming, in part because Indian hair has a

hair when swimming such as applying conditioner before/after swimming and
washing your hair after swimming to remove the chlorine. It is also recommended
to wash your hair if you get caught in the rain.
