Buying hairpieces or extensions made from Korean or Chinese hair can be more difficult to work with as they  don’t hold a style very well. Chinese hair has a round cuticle and therefore will not maintain curl or wave. As well most of the lighter colors are very bleached black hair. So the colors can be a bit muddy. The blondes don’t tend to be clear and bright! Just think of coloring over a dark paper with a light crayon.

 

Non-Remy is perhaps the most popular and commonly available form of hair. It is also known as fallen hair. The roots and tips of hairs are all mixed up in non-remy hair; tangling is therefore a problem as the opposing cuticle layers catch on each other, but as the most inexpensive type of hair, it is the best seller.

 

The best hair on the market is Russian hair but it is extremely expensive. Russian hair is very soft and fine, easy to work with and the colors are beautiful, but one piece is typically $ 2,000 – 3,000.

 

European hair is a popular form of hair. It has a straight and soft texture. Adequate care must be taken as the market is flooded with fakes.

 

 

 

One of the more popular hair types is Indian remy. This hair is a lovely compromise. The best quality Indonesian remy is still affordable and much nicer to work with. It typically holds curl and blends beautifully with Western hair. Indian hair has its own inherent advantages: it is simultaneously thin and strong. The hair comes most often from people who have had their heads shaved for religious purposes like in Tirupati, India. Indian hair is typically available as Remi Virgin hair or Remi hair.

 

The highest-quality extension hair is Indian human remy hair. Remy hair still possesses the  cuticle layer, which is the outermost part of the hair strand (it resembles shingles on a roof). All remy hair has the cuticle layer of the hair flowing in the same direction, flowing the way it would naturally. The cuticle layer is important when concerned with hair tangling, longevity of the use (up to one year), and how well the hair shines. When the cuticle layer is intact and lying flat, the hair is capable of reflecting light so that the hair shines.

How To Buy Hairpieces & Extensions

Orchid Hair hairpieces & extensions are made of the finest 100%, Fair Trade, human hair with beautiful highlights and low lights to blend naturally with your original hair colour. All of our pieces are handpicked using the finest Indonesian hair.

When shopping for hairpieces & hair extensions, there are many things to take into consideration. The #1 concern is quality. There are a few types of hair sold under different labels for very different prices. As well as varying color and texture quality.

 

Most human hair used for weaves and wigs are obtained from Asia (perhaps most often China, India, and Korea). It is collected from barbers’ floors or Indian temple floors and aggressively treated with acid and other chemicals. These chemicals destroy the cuticle partially or completely. (Lower-quality “human hair” extensions are sometimes even mixed with animal and synthetic hair to lower the price, but this is rare and uncommon.) In the hair industry, this hair is commonly called stripped hair.

Care & Maintenance

Care for your hairpiece just as you would your own hair. Salon quality shampoo and conditioner is highly recommended, as is air-drying. You may use styling products, leave-in conditioner or hot tools on your Orchid Hairpiece. Although you may use styling products and hot tools, consistent use can damage your hairpiece exactly the same way it can damage your natural hair. Don’t worry though! There is a deep conditioning process that helps return your Orchid Hairpiece to its stunning original condition.

 

Please follow this deep conditioning process:

 

- Wash with salon quality shampoo

- Rinse

- Gently ring in a towel

- Apply deep conditioner to your hairpiece and place in a bowl

- Add hot (not boiling) water to the bowl and leave over night

- Rise in cool water, then place out to air dry

- Brush and flat iron once dry
