Types of Hair

Many people face the same problem when purchasing a hair extension: it’s hard to know whether the extension you’re buying contains fully natural hair collected from ethical sources. The last thing you want to discover is that your hair extension has come from the floor of a hairdresser’s shop, or from a black market. Some nefarious suppliers mix human and synthetic hair while labelling their product as fully authentic, while others add heavy chemicals to natural hair in order to obtain enhanced curl patterns. In such cases, the natural hair will break down when heat or styling is applied, or will only last a few months. Read on to discover the different kinds of hair, and how they may be identified.
