Hair Extensions Definitions
Pre Bonded A small bundle of strands of hair with a keratin bond attached eliminating the need for messy glue guns.
Virgin Sourced Hair & Virgin Hair
= Virgin Hair is hair which has never had a chemical process, all systems I use are sourced from Virgin Hair, which then goes through a gentle colouring process.
= Keratin is a natural product found in your nails and hair. When the term Keratin Bond is used it is a manmade substitute similar to natural keratin. Italian Keratin is the hardest & longest wearing with the closest molecular structure to natural keratin. A special remover is needed as they cant be removed with acetone based removers.
Indian Temple Hair
= Hair which is offered to the God’s in Hindu Temples, grown until the Hindu feels blessed by a significant event. This can be marriage, birth etc and is offered in thanks to their God.
= Ensuring a fairtrade price is paid for the hair and reinvested in local infrastructure.
= Hair can be traced to the temple of origin.
AAAA / AAA / AA / A
Grade hair = There is no universal grade for human hair – this is the scale a manufacturer will use to grade the quality of their own hair, with AAAA being the highest. Hair with the same grade from different suppliers can vary in quality.
Hair weight in grams
= This refers to the weight of the hair in each strand. So hair weighing 0.7g will give a less fuller look than strands containing 0.8 / 1g.
hair means the bond is already attached to the hair ready for application by either heat fusion / cold fusion. I use the Great lengths classic fusion machine which is a heat fusion method. The connector arm (which looks like a very large pair of tweezers!) tip has a cold tip, which touches your natural hair and a hot tip which warms the bond, this is then rolled into a neat bond fusing this to your natural hair.
Remy / Remi / Remis
= This refers to the cuticle which is the outer layer of human hair and means it (the cuticle) is laying in the same direction, downwards from root to tip to prevent matting. Not all human hair extensions have the cuticle completely intact or at all as it has been removed during the colouring process. So to make the hair shine and feel silky and more manageable it is sometimes finished with a coating. (Usually silicone)
= This means the hair is the same thickness from root to tip, so therefore no thin wispy ends.
