Did you know that the human hair industry is not regulated? That’s right, when you go into the beauty supply and see 100% human hair on those packages- it may only be 5% human hair or (gasp) 100% synthetic hair! Unfortunately, those that run the hair industry have become marketing geniuses and know what appeals to the masses so that is why they name their products “Virgin, Remy” etc. If you read the fine print it’s usually not that at all. Have you ever wondered if it’s human hair then why does it tangle and what are all those plastic strands mixed in the hair? Those plastic strands are fillers to make the bundles more full but it compromises the integrity and longevity of the hair. The reason why hair tangles (especially in the nape of the neck) is because the cuticle has been removed from the hair through chemical processing- that’s if it’s human hair at all. I’m going to let out a little secret- most hair that you find in the beauty supply is chemically processed! That's not to say that all beauty supply store hair is bad but if you find some that is good then you are in luck. Virgin hair is 100% human hair that has not been chemically altered and comes in natural textures and colors. When searching for quality pre-styled hair (such as body wave, kinky curly) it is best to look for steam processed as steam doesn't affect the quality of the hair. It can last you for years depending on how you care for it.
