Why 90% Of Hair Extensions Comes From India

There have been so many misconceptions and misinformation out about where hair from hair extensions come from. So let me break it down for you.
Each day there are tons of hair donated at multiple different temples in India. The biggest temples are in Southern India, and this is where a majority of the hair comes from.

The hair is then bid on and sold online to the different factories that have the proper licensing to purchase the hair. Once the hair is purchased, it's handled multiple different ways depending on the manufacturer.

It's important to understand that not all Indian hair is virgin. Some women who donate have colored or chemically altered their hair. That hair is separated at the factory level.

That hair is then hackled and prepared to be sold to China. It's purchased by the ton. Once the hair is in China, they have their own methods of processing the hair for their tiered grading system (11A, 7A, etc.).

Some of the terms like Cambodian, Mongolian, etc. are marketing terms used to sell hair. There are very few people in other countries who donate or sell their hair for manufacturing.

Be sure to do your research before purchasing hair thoroughly. You want to make sure you're getting quality hair for the price.

Stay tuned for more information like this about the extension market.
