Using hair extensions is a great way of giving yourself a new look; it is like getting a new lease of life as hair extensions can lengthen and thicken nearly all kinds of hair. The best types of hair used in hair extensions is or hair collected with all the cuticles in the right direction. Since they are of high quality, extensions are also the most expensive.
The Cuticle Layer of Hair
The cuticle layer is the outermost part of the hair strand; it is a shingle-like layer of overlapping cells. These cells are some 5-12 deep and formed from dead cells which form scales. It is this layer that gives strength to the hair strand and also protects the softer inner structure from all forms of damage. Besides reflecting on the longevity of the use of hair extensions, the cuticle layer is important when concerned with tangling and natural shininess of hair. An intact cuticle layer that lies flat has the capability of reflecting light, giving hair a shiny look.
That, however, is just one part of the story. The rest is about Indian hair.
What is commonly referred to as is human hair sourced from India and taken directly from the scalp so that that the cuticle layer is flowing in the same direction, giving the hair extension a natural, flowing and shiny look.
Indian Hair: Hair Extensions
Indian hair is inherently thin and at the same time, strong. It is also the most popular type used in hair extensions.
A lot of hair that you see in hair extensions is Indian hair from tonsuring, a common practice in India. In India, denying oneself the good things in life or giving away something that one loves is a traditional way of expressing gratitude to the almighty. It is considered to be an act of shedding one’s vanity, and there is no denying the fact that most women are vain about their long flowing hair.
Call it sacrifice or thanksgiving, women in India donate their hair to thank god on the fulfillment of a prayer. For example, if a woman prays to god for restoring the health of a loved one, she may take a vow that she will donate her hair at a particular temple. In the event the loved one does get well, she presumes that her prayers have been answered and gladly donates her hair.
While Virgin hair is completely natural, unprocessed and untreated. While the origin of the hair that goes in to make hair extensions is important, the care that was given when hair was first collected from the donor is equally important. is considered to be better than natural hair sourced from other countries, the highest quality is virgin Indian hair.
Virgin Indian hair is taken directly from the scalp, which ensures that the cuticles are intact and flowing in an identical path. It is worth mentioning here that virgin hair that is colored or chemically treated in any way is known as Remy .
