What is Virgin Indian Hair?
100% virgin Indian hair is hair that has not been chemically treated. There are no permanent/semi-permanent colors, perms, or relaxers used to alter the color, texture or curl pattern of the hair. To prevent tangling, the hair is made with the cuticles aligned in the same direction. This can also be called cuticle hair.
All hair comes in natural black and brown tones. The hair can be colored with professional permanent, semi-permanent and cellophane coloring products. Naturally wavy hair comes 8"-28"; all in two inch increments (8”, 10", 12", 14" - 32", etc.)
The hair comes in bulk, Machine weft or hand-tied. Bulk hair is used for braiding and fusion. Machine wefts and hand-tied wefts are used for weaving. Hand-tied wefts lay much flatter and are more undetectable than machine wefts.
Before hair is distributed to customers, it is inspected, shampooed and deep conditioned. We insure quality hair is delivered with every order. This hair can last 6 months to a year or longer if properly taken care of. A professional cosmetologist is recommended for proper care and styling of Indian hair.
Can I color this hair?
Yes, this hair can be colored with professional permanent, semi-permanent and cellophane colors.
Once the hair has been colored, it is no longer considered "virgin" hair & so we cannot guarantee the hair after it has been treated in any way.
Can I order a sample of the hair?
Yes you can order samples of the hair. Each sample will be 2"-3" wide, so that you can feel the hair and perform various test on the hair, for a small price to cover the FEDEX shipping of $10.
How much hair is needed?
A minimum of 8 ounces of hair is needed for a full weave depending on how full you'd like the finished style. A minimum of 8 ounces of hair is needed for braiding or fusion.
Maintenance Instructions for Straight/ Wavy & Signature Curly Hair
Shampooing & Rinse
You can wash your virgin Remy Indian hair as often as you would like. We recommend you to wash the hair at least once a week. The cleaner the hair is, the more beautiful it becomes. When shampooing your hair, use a mild shampoo and warm water. We recommend Dove Shampoo (for Ruff and Dry hair). Lather the shampoo in between your hands and start from tip to root. Wash the hair in a downward motion and in a gentle stream,and rinse the shampoo out.
It is very important the hair stays hydrated and moisturized to keep its shine, luminosity, and durability. Use a Moisturizing conditioner (such as Dove) with the hair to ensure the hair will receive deep conditioning which helps keep it silky soft. Apply conditioner generously from tips to root, rinse with warm water under a gentle stream.
Drying your Indian Hair.
After washing your hair, we recommend using a leave in conditioner to ensure the hair is safe from heat styling and humidity. Enjoy Shine and Smooth, is an excellent silicone based serum which helps keep flyways tamed and the hair protected all day! Comb hair with a wide toothed comb and then blow dry hair on cool heat settings so the cool air seals the cuticles and makes the hair glossy.
Weekly Treatments for the Hair.
This is optional. Since the hair is not attached to the scalp it is not receiving the same nutrients. It is important to restore health back into the hair after excessive heat styling and the wear and tear of weather. We love Enjoy Hair Mask and Olive oil Treatments. These treatments can be done once a week to ensure the hair is restored. You will feel like you just bought the fresh hair with these treatments! Give your hair some TLC! (Tender Loving Care).
Avoid using heat exceeding 280 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a straightening iron sparingly, and avoid using heat styling tools with straightening treatments.
