Source of Hair

London Source of HairThere are different grades of human hair used within the hair extension industry with Chinese hair being the most common type of hair found in use today.

The reason for this is simple - it's readily available in large quantities and cheap to buy. However, Chinese hair is often very thick and coarse. In order to reduce the thickness and give it a softer and finer texture many hair companies expose the hair to an aggressive acid treatment to strip the cuticle layer. This chemical treatment destroys the cuticle layer, leaving the hair opaque and fragile. The hair is then coloured and covered with a silicone layer, which gives it a simulated healthy look. In the beginning the hair seems shiny and beautiful, but after a few washes the silicone layer starts to wash away and the colour fades leaving the hair with a dull matt appearance.

The Essence of Tatiana Hair Extensions' Hair

For that reason Tatiana Hair Extensions never uses Chinese hair and instead only uses the finest quality Russian and European virgin hair.  Russian and European virgin hair are types of human hair, collected in specific geographical regions which retain their cuticles and are hand arranged to ensure all the cuticles are facing the same direction from root to end. This ensures that the hair does not tangle or matt.

The term virgin - which means it has never been coloured, permed, tinted or chemically treated in any way. The extension hair can be perfectly matched to the wearer’s hair with respect to colour, curl and texture. It can be coloured, highlighted, permed, blow-dried, flat ironed straight and curled to create any look you want yet still behave exactly like your natural looking hair.

Tatiana Hair Extensions works directly with local collectors, not brokers, to ensure that its hair is ethically sourced and is of the finest quality.  Hair is tested and reviewed in-salon before it is made available to its clients ensuring that every strand of hair is guaranteed to be soft to the touch and full of lustre while still retaining its vitality such that it can be reused again and again.  Tatiana Hair Extensions understands the impact of a single disappointed client on its business and works tirelessly to ensure it never fails to deliver the finest human hair on the market.
