Raw Hair vs. Virgin Hair - Let's talk about it!

Brazilian, Malaysian, Peruvian, are all manufactured names for selling tactics. The vast majority of this hair is Chinese hair blended with synthetic fibers.

In this blog, we will be discussing the difference between Raw hair and Virgin hair.

Okay, so let's talk beauté talk. It's time for us to break down the RAW facts to you.

What is Raw Hair?

Raw hair is the true definition of virgin hair. Raw hair is 100% unprocessed hair collected from one donor. Unlike virgin hair, it comes in its most natural state. This is the highest quality of hair on the market as it is 100% natural. With fuller, longer-lasting bundles, Raw Hair is not only natural-looking, but it acts just like your own natural hair and it blends well with all hair types. Raw hair is the purest and most natural hair on the market.

Raw Hair Features:

  1. 100% Pure Virgin Hair

  2. Mainly Sourced From One Donor

  3. All Cuticles Intact

  4. Limited to only 3 natural textures (straight, wavy, curly)

  5. Last longer because it gets better with every wash

  6. Typically More Maintenance

What is Virgin Hair?

Virgin Hair is human hair that has been chemically altered or mechanically manipulated to achieve desired textures and/or colors and usually sourced from multiple donors. This means that most ‘Virgin Hair’ sold today has actually adopted former ‘Remy Hair’ characteristics.Remy Hair Extensions is typically the hair “left over” from 100% Virgin Hair donors and processed to market which lowers the quality. But now, we are seeing this trend into our virgin hair market, lowering industry standard on what used to be known as the Gold Standard.

What is the BIG difference between Raw Hair and Virgin Hair?

Raw hair texture is naturally derived whereas Virgin hair has been processed to achieve the texture pattern in efforts to mimic a particular hair style or pattern.Virgin hair on the market is typically silky, medium to high luster, and sourced from multiple donors. Raw hair varies in pattern, tone, and is typically lower to medium luster due to the fact that it is not processed and cut from same donors. Hint: this is why Raw Hair Extensions are typically harder to maintain than Virgin Hair Extensions. Raw hair will respond to elements, manipulation, and care just like your own hair would!
