What is Virgin Human Hair?
Virgin Human Hair is the highest grade of real, human hair that is a preferred choice for hair extensions, hairpieces and wigs because it achieves the most natural look. Virgin hair is collected from one donor, with uniform cuticles growing in the same direction, which eliminates shedding, matting, and tangling of the hair extensions.
So what does Virgin Human Hair mean?
Virgin Hair is considered to be the finest quality of human hair because the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped. Preserving the hairs’ cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are completely natural in appearance. This process ensures that the hair remains super soft, shiny, silky and completely tangle-free throughout its lifetime.
Jamal's Pure Sexy Hair Extensions use only the finest quality Virgin Human Hair, which means that the hair has been carefully sorted after collecting from the hair donor to ensure all the cuticles are of the same length. It is by far the best quality of hair on the market because of the care that is required and the time it takes to sort the hair so meticulously.
What is the difference between Synthetic and Human hair extensions?
Hair extensions made from human hair can be dyed, heated (curled or straightened), styled, washed, and treated like your own natural hair. Hair extensions made from synthetic hair are sensitive to the sun, don’t last as long as human hair, are difficult to style, and cannot blend in as well with your real hair.
Why do some hair extensions become dry after the first few washes?
The simple answer is use of chemicals, heat and lack of moisture. We eat food to feed our bodies with nutrients which eventually makes their way through our system to feed our skin and hair. We cannot feed hair extensions in the same way so we need to use alternative methods.
We recommend using Jamal's Esteem Organic and Non-sulfate Shampoo to regularly feed, moisturize and treat your hair extensions. Remember, color-tinted hair goes through a chemical process, especially when lightened to blondes and special colors, this is unavoidable to achieve the colors we all desire. A little moisturizing oil, we prefer Jamal's Pure Sexy Oil Sheen Spray, each week is key.
Avoid shampoo and conditioning products which use Sulfates, Isopropyl Alcohol, Formaldehyde and Propylene Glycol, these are strong chemicals which will strip the hair of natural oils and leave them dry and sometimes damaged if used for a prolonged period of time. Avoid using high heat temperature settings on the extensions.
