Virgin hair is the most sought after hair among African Americans, it is also highly popular in those hollywood celebrities, such as Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, etc. You can see these stars or models usually appeared in the public with different beautiful hair styles, actually they were wearing hair extensions. Take Kim Kardashian for example, long straight and body wave are two most favorite hair styles she would like to wear. So, hair extensions have become a necessary part in their daily life. Among so many types of hair extensions from different origins, virgin Brazilian hair is the best type of human hair extensions. However, few companies in the market offer you the real virgin Brazilian hair, most of them took cheaper Indian hair to deceive clients. So, here I will give an introduction on how to tell it is real virgin Brazilian hair and where to buy the most pure Brazilian hair.
To ensure that you are buying real virgin Brazilian hair, first, you must guarantee it is virgin hair. You can check from the following four aspects to find out the claimed virgin hair to be real or fake. First, check its color. Virgin hair usually has the donor's hair color, which ranges from natural black to light brown. The color of an entire bundle may be not uniform, sometimes the bundle has a darker root, it is very normal to find grey hair strands in one bundle, this does not mean it is not pure virgin hair. Second, some vendors use silicone treatment or chemical straightener coating on their products, this gives the hair a silky appearance, I mean too silky, you can even feel the coating when running your fingers through the hair, this is not virgin hair. Third, to guarantee you are purchasing the most pure virgin hair that is not mixed with synthetic fibers, just do a flame test. If the hair is mixed with synthetic fibers, it will produce a huge flame when it touches a flame.
After confirming it is virgin hair, then how to ensure the hair you are buying comes from Brazil. Because true Brazilian hair is very rare, it is usually sold at a higher price than hair coming from other origins. I think this is the main fact for you to decide whether the hair comes from Brazil or not. Those vendors online who sell their hair products at a cheap price actually do not offer you real virgin Brazilian hair. So, where to find a trusted dealer to buy the most pure virgin Brazilian hair? I recommend New Star, even though the price is a little higher than that of other vendors. The virgin hair from New Star comes in straight, wavy or curly textures, all could be styled very easily and handle heat well, the wavy and curly hair can hold a curl all day. The virgin Brazilian hair from New Star blends well with most natural ethnic hair textures. The following photo shows a feedback from an important client of ours, she said she used that hair for almost 3 years, the hair still looks good. This proves real virgin Brazilian hair has a longer hairlife, usually lasts for more than a year.
There are a lot of hair companies that sell hair products, many of them claim that their hair products are made of virgin human hair, but sold at a cheap price, in my opinion, actually they are not selling the real virgin hair even their product names contain the two words "virgin hair", they are cheating you. Real human virgin hair products are sold at a high price, because the hair is cut from single one donor and completely unprocessed, not everyone is able to buy virgin hair, so, here comes the question, how to get free virgin hair? Under such high competitive hair business, it is easy to get free virgin hair because every hair company competes with each other to take over more market share, some companies offer free samples, some will hold giveaway in their social medias such as Instagram to give free virgin hair as prize. These are all free ways for you to get the best virgin hair, you do not need to pay, just follow their Instagram or Facebook to participate the giveaway events they held.
New Star offers two great ways for you to get free virgin hair. First, we will hold giveaway event on instagram page(@newstarhairleon) each month, you can follow this instagram account to participate the giveaway and then win free bundles, usually the prize will be three straight or body wave bundles, or other hair textures, in inch of 14, 16 and 18. As you know, three bundles are very enough for you to make a full hair appearance because these bundles offered by New Star are made of real virgin hair.
Second, New Star will send free virgin hair to online celebrities on Youtube or Instagram each month, these celebrities will be invited to use our hair and after wearing, they will give an honest review. If you have a great amount of audience on Youtube and your channel is mainly on hair, makeup and fashion reviews, please contact us. We will send the hair you want to review.
These above are two main ways for you to get free virgin hair from New Star hair company. By the way, free samples offered by other hair companies is another way for you to get free hair, but I can not guarantee these samples are real virgin hair.
360 lace frontal is one of the most popular hair products on our site, yes, the other two best-selling hair types are always Brazilian straight and body wave hair. Why is 360 lace frontal so popular? I think it has two big advantages, first, it can protect your natural hairline, second, it offers a high degree of freedom to help you style your hair. Like its name, 360 refers to the frontal will give a 360-degree of protection to your hairline, with this frontal, do you know how many bundles you will need to buy to match it?
There are three factors you need to consider before deciding how many bundles to buy with a 360 lace frontal. They are size of your head, hair length and texture.
First, in the United States, the average size of women's head is 22.5", use a measuring tape to wrap it around your head from ear to ear, if your head is above the average size, you will need more human hair bundles, or you need less than others.
Second, there is one rule when it comes to hair length, the longer you want your hair to be, the more bundles you will need. We always suggest you wear more bundles for a fuller look. The following chart will help you to make your decision.
Third, hair texture. Wavy or tight curly hair may make your hair look fuller, so you will need fewer bundles for these hair textures. Wearing New Star curly hair, we recommend 2 or 3 bundles for a natural full look, while for straight hair, you might need more bundles to create a super full look, about 3 to 4 bundles.
It is an exciting moment to buy some new hair bundles with closure when you saved up enough money. But it is also a little worried because what if the hair you are buying is not real. In order to help you avoid getting scammed, here I tell you one truth about virgin hair, which is it allows to be colored or bleached. Here at New Star, this post shows some photos of hair bleaching test we do in our office.
When you wash your hair extensions, if there is black dye coming out, then your extensions does not use virgin hair material. Some companies claim that they are selling virgin hair actually they are not. There are a lot of hair brands online that claim selling virgin hair at a high price tag, so, it is very important for you to make sure you are buying real virgin human hair.
What is Virgin Hair?
Virgin hair, which is also known as "cuticle hair", means the cuticles on each hair strand remain intact and face the same direction. Virgin hair has not been subjected to any chemical processing, they are also not treated with perm, relaxer or colored. Virgin hair is the purest form of hair available in the market. Besides, virgin hair is usually available in natural black and brown color.
How to Tell Real and Fake Virgin Hair?
First, to see the hair color. Virgin hair has the donor's hair color, which ranges from natural black to brown. Mostly in medium brown and lighter than #1B color you buy from a store. Sometimes you will find a few strands of grey hair in the extensions.
Second, test the hair grade and texture of hair. Virgin hair will not be too silky or straight, it has a little coarser texture. Non-virgin hair is generally subjected to chemical straightener coating, which will give the hair a silky appearance. Run your fingers through hair, you can have a feeling of that coating.
Third, do the flame test. Cut off a small strand of the hair you purchased, place it above a small flame such as a candle, fake virgin hair such as synthetic hair is easily flammable and will produce a big flame, once the real virgin hair touches a flame, there usually will be smoke but not big flame.
The most important is to do a wet test. Non-virgin hair feels very heavy when it is wet, while virgi hair will retain its wavy patterns or natural curls when it is wet.
