About Our Virgin Human Hair

  1.  Is the Virgin hair real human hair? Yes, all our virgin hair extensions and wigs are 100% human hair sourced and collected from the origin of the donors. Virgin hair means that the hair is unprocessed (that is no dye and not chemically processed); with cuticles intact, hair aligns in one direction with the head and tail facing one direction. As a result you would get the best chance to apply chemicals to the hair for bleaching and colouring. However, it is very important that you treat the hair like your own hair and always do a strand test before putting any chemicals on. Hence, we recommend that this should be done by a professional.
  2. What is the Quality of the Hair? We stock different range of human hair. The highest grade of  virgin hair we stock is the Gold Range. We aim to provide the best quality products and service to all our customers. In the market today, you will find lots of cheap hair advertised as virgin hair.  Most people get carried away with sellers offering to sell Brazilian, Peruvian, Indian hair for a very cheap price, to say the least the hair market is currently flooded. The Chinese has taken over the human hair market as such there is a huge amount of fake human hair extensions in the market today and sadly most buyers can barely differentiate real hair from fake hair or processed hair. 

    The question here is:

    Are they actually selling the real virgin hair to you?

    How long would the hair last for? Clearly, these hair vendors offering cheap human hair are selling hair that has been mixed with both animal and shredded human hair to you, possibly from combings and highly chemically processed. That is why they are very cheap. Also, the hair would not last long and would start to shred and fade before you know it. Have you not wondered why you buy the so called human hair and it barely last for 6 months after which you are inclined to purchase more hair. If you could look at it this way, spend considerable amount on very good quality hair, you would not have to repurchase for at least a year. Unless you wish to stock different textures and own a variety of our quality hair. Our virgin hair is Gold and compared to popular ratings is 12A grade or higher. It speaks for itself, the older it gets the better it looks. Please see our Customers Feedback and Review.

  3. Can I buy Hair Samples? Unfortunately, not at present. We do not sell hair samples to try on. But, we recommend you buy a bundle of hair and try out for yourself. Soon, you will be coming back to us for more and thus recommending other buyers to us! This is evident from the number of feedback we have received. Please see our Customers Feedback and Review

  4. ​​​​Can I dye the virgin hair? Yes, the virgin hair can be dyed into any colour of your choice as you would normally do to your own natural hair. It can also be bleached. This is because its 100% unprocessed Hair (please refer to question 1 for more information). To dye your hair, we recommend that it is done by a professional. Maintenance Page for more information.
  5. Can I thong or curl the Virgin Human hair? Yes, all our 100% human hair including Virgin human hair can be tong, curled or straighten. To do so, you will need a hair tong or curling equipment (please read the manufacturer manual before use). However, we recommend that you avoid too much heat on the hair as it could affect the strength of the hair especially when you tong without heat protector spray. To avoid this , you can buy the curled hair from us instead. For example, You buy our Brazilian Deep Wave style instead of the Straight Style or use Bendy Rollers. The bendy roller is a very good option, all you need do is get one and roll them onto you hair. You do not need to be a professional to use the bendy rollers. It is user friendly. Once installed, you keep them on for at least an hour or longer after which you take them out to unveil your natural curls. See our hair accessories. You can also apply a spray hold to keep the curls in place. See our hair sprays.
  6. How do I maintain the Human hair? We offer Hair Repairs and Hair Maintenance services at an affordable cost . This exclusive service is available for you to order online. Click here to order. We have also developed a step to step Maintenance guide for our customers. Please refer to our Product Info Page for more information.
  7. Can I wash the Human hair? Yes, the human hair can be washed as you would normally do with your natural hair. Again, this is because it is 100% natural human hair. Please refer to our maintenance page

  1.  How do I fit the Human hair? This would depend on the type of extensions you purchase. For example, Machine Weft Extensions. It can be used for clip in, sew onto you hair as weave or Bonded extensions. 
  2. What type of wigs do you sell? Please see the following: 

You would need a lace glue to install the hair fully.
