Which Texture Of Virgin Remy Hair Is Right For You?
- Knowing the origin of the hair gives you an idea of the general texture of the hair. For example, Vietnamese hair tends to be slightly more silky and darker than Cambodian hair. Cambodian hair tends to be more coarse and thicker than Vietnamese hair. Though, each hair donor is specific to just themselves, understanding a general baseline of the origin of the hair will also allow you to understand styling needs and how much hair is necessary. The Vietnamese hair is so fine you tend to need more than when you use the Cambodian hair, that is more dense.
- Is the hair single drawn or double drawn? Single drawn hair is thinner on the ends, this is the more natural option, since our hair naturally thin out towards the end. Double drawn is much more thick and full, usually about 20-50% more in cost, this hair is for a full volume look, appears a little less natural than single drawn hair, but less hair is needed when using double drawn hair.
- What look are you going for? Do you want a natural look that blends in with your hair? Or do you intend on doing a protective style, or a full hair extension installation, when none of your natural hair is visible. Knowing what look you are going for prior to purchase, helps narrow down your choices. For example, I want a look that I can wear straight or curly, knowing this, I know not to look at the straight hair, but maybe the natural wavy or natural straights, for body and wave. But, if you intend to do a complete install either with or without a closure you will need more hair. Don't get stuck in the chair with not enough hair!
- Consider your lifestyle, and the hair style you are going for. Are you going for a natural look, do you want a texture that blends in with your hair, or are you doing complete install with a wig unit or a full sew in? Each style requires different technique along with different types of hair extensions. For example to get a complete installation you would need a closure or frontal piece. I strongly suggest communicating with the person or stylist doing the install and set your expectations as well as your desired look.
Don't be intimidated by the hair industry, it can be overwhelming, don't get intimidated, just remember these points when purchasing, have a planned budget and know all of your costs. Purchasing the hair is one cost, while installation of your hair extensions is another. Below is a video where I explain more and show you the hair, I hope you enjoy!
