Why Choose Russian & European Hair Extensions?
There are different grades of human hair used within the hair extension industry with Chinese and Indian hair being the most common types of hair found in use today. The reason for this is simple - it's readily available in large quantities and extremely cheap to buy.
However, Chinese hair is thick and coarse and generally not suitable for Western women’s finer hair. Indian hair, also known as “Temple Hair” is finer than Chinese hair but is only available naturally in dark brown and black. Both types of hair are amassed in such large quantities that the hair are inadvertently turned in opposite directions causing the cuticles of the hairs to catch which, in turn, causes the hair to tangle and matt. In order to reduce the thickness and to fix the problem of tangling and matting the hair is processed. This process exposes the hair to an aggressive acid treatment to strip the cuticle layer. To get the Chinese and Indian hair, which is naturally dark, blonde the hair has to undergo a further aggressive bleaching process leaving the hair opaque and fragile. The hair is then 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.
