A LITTLE HAIR HISTORY

How hair extensions came to be and where the industry is headed
Start
All faith, no fashion.

All hair donated at temples from devotees is collected and burned. Hair extensions were not invented as of yet.

Up until 1940
Event
A missed opportunity

Koreans visit India and discover the huge amounts of hair in temples, and see it as a business opportunity. They request to take the hair off the hands of the temple. The temple agrees since the hair was simply getting wasted.

1941
Start
The monopoly of a trend

The Indian hair is being put to good use in Korea, being used for the production of wigs, units, and other hairpieces. They start exporting to the USA and Europe where awareness and demand pick up steam.

1940 to 1950
Event
A piece of the action

India discovers what Korea is doing with Indian hair. India gets involved in the India, weft production and the exportation of hair begins. China starts to become the biggest country of export.

1970
Event
A big competetion

Korea begins production in China to remain competitive and keep market share, which results in copycats and the growth of the industry in China. China starts dominating the industry.

1990
Event
An industry boom

Worldwide demand for human hair picks up. Hair extensions are widely accepted, stylists and consumers become slightly more savvy about quality and other important characteristics of human hair, including virgin hair.

2000
Event
Clever marketing tactics

China begins using clever marketing tactics to create new markets within the industry, such as Brazilian hair, Malaysian hair, Cambodian hair. This hair is non-remy and processed with low quality traits. The prices are kept low to compete in this multi-billion dollar industry.

2009 to 2015
End
Back to our roots

With the saturation of sub-standard and low-quality products, Indian hair is starting to see an uptick. Consumers are becoming more educated and are better understanding the value of a more authentic and pure product.

2016

THE CURRENT STATE OF HAIR

Understanding the different between types of hair makes you an educated and savvy consumer. Knowledge is power.
BE VERY SKEPTICAL

Most hair nowadays, often labeled as “Virgin”, “Remy” is rarely Virgin or Remy. Nearly 90% of all human hair extensions consist of processed hair from China. It may even be mixed with animal or synthetic fibers. Most suppliers use non-remy hair instead of single drawn hair from one donor. This means they strip the cuticle by soaking the hair in acid, chemically process it for texture, and color it with dyes. They also coat the hair with silicone, which makes it temporarily ‘tangle free' and lustrous, but the silicone washes off quickly and the hair soon becomes dry, stiff, and matted. The hair becomes damaged and too weak to handle heat styling or color applications, they are left looking synthetic and unnatural, and need to be replaced quickly. This hair can often cause severe skin irritation and scalp allergies. We had to tell you.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU

In order for Virgin hair vendors to remain competitive, many vendors market hair as Brazilian, Malaysian, or Cambodian hair. This is a clever marketing tactic that makes the hair appear more exotic and desirable. China imports fallen hair, also referred to as non-remy hair, from India. Fallen hair is dead hair that is collected from hair salons and hair brushes. If you are shopping for extensions, watch for Chinese hair masquerading as something else. Today, there are over 9,000 Chinese and Korean-owned beauty supply stores serving a billion dollar market for African American hair. Between manufacturing, distribution and selling hair care products, Chinese and Korean entrepenuers dominate the industry. Be careful about your source, stick to high quality vendors like Perfect Locks for a long-lasting, flexible, and beautiful product.

Our Advantage

We at Perfect Locks firmly believe the trends with processed hair are coming to an end. Consumers are becoming savvy and educated when it comes to hair quality. The true authenticity and quality of hair can be seen through satisfying experiences with maintenance and longevity.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How can I really know it is Virgin?
Virgin hair will have split ends, and will have a non-uniform curl pattern. The color can also slightly vary. To ensure you have quality Virgin hair run a strand between your thumb and index finger. If the hair is smooth this means the cuticle .
What is Brazilian Hair?
It's very unlikely the hair is from Brazil. Brazilians do not sell their hair, nor do they cut it for profit or religion. It would be impossible for the Brazilian community to provide a large abundance of hair for the rest of the world. In fact, Perfect Locks has several distributors in Brazil whom we ship Indian hair to.
What is Peruvian Hair? Mongolian? Indonesian? Etc?
This is usually Non-Remy hair from China or India. After the "Brazilian Hair" marketing tactic became successful, it was only natural to see the "exotic" hair craze perpetuated through other exotic textures from around the world. This hair is never actually from these areas, it's basically a fancy way of saying the hair is processed hair from China.
Why isn't hair from China recommended?
Chinese and Korean manufacturers have different tricks up their sleeve. They usually put a coating over the hair so it doesn't tangle on the first wash. They keep the hair sealed with chemicals so it feels great at first, but but it usually only lasts for 1 or 2 washes.
What is Real Virgin Indian hair?
Real Virgin Indian hair will not tangle because the cuticles of the hair are all aligned in the same direction. Be careful. Many Indian hair vendors are also selling Chinese hair. They have learned that it's more profitable to import cheaper hair from China.
How long will Perfect Locks hair last?
1 to 2 years with proper maintenance. Since our hair is pure Virgin Remy hair, caring for your hair is key to long-lasting, gorgeous tresses. Using high quality sulfate-free products like our Inspire Hair Care line is a must. These products will keep your hair hydrated and moisturized, which keeps the hair cuticle smooth and makes it less likely to have tangling and matting issues.
What is Remy vs Non-Remy hair?

Remy hair is hair from from one donor. When cutting the hair, they carefully wrap the hair in a ponytail when shaving the head, to ensure that all the hair being cut will remain in one bundle. This ensures that all the hair cuticles are running in the same direction. Indian Remy hair is the purest form of hair extensions. Only 1.8% of hair extensions throughout the world are made from Remy hair.

Non-Remy hair is hair collected from various sources, like barber shops or fallen hair at temples. The hair is then washed in an acid bath to strip the cuticle from the hair, not cuticle means tangling and matting.

What is fake Virgin hair?
If you are shopping for Virgin hair that seems like it's a great deal, then it's usually too good to be true. The raw cost of Virgin hair is actually very high because of it's longevity and quality, the value per gram is worth nearly the weight of gold!
What type of hair is best?
Virgin Remy is the best hair because the cuticle is intact and aligned.
Why is real Virgin hair so expensive?
It's the only type of hair that has not been processed and with the cuticle intact. It's also considered a commodity and a valuable resource, just like gold or oil.
