The Best Hair Extensions

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

One of the most frequent questions we are asked is “What are the best hair extensions?”

The “best” hair is subjective.

What is the value of any hair if the color and texture does not work for you? Consider this scenario: pull your hair back into a ponytail, cut it off and hand it to the person next to you. Will your hair be the best match for this person? Think of hair extensions the same way.

In terms of durability, nothing compares to high quality 100% Virgin Remy Hair when you can wear the hair in its virgin condition without altering the color or texture. However, virgin hair can have varying color and texture differences so consistently getting the combination of the exact color and texture is not as predictable as processed, packaged hair.

Another consideration is that almost all virgin hair are shades of black and brown. The exception is Russian European which is never black but shades of dark brown to dark blonde. Russian European, if some opinions or hair articles are to be believed, is touted as the best hair. While it fills a certain niche, we do not hold the opinion Russian European is the best. We do not hold that opinion on Indian, Asian or even Brazilian hair. And the reason is this:

The “best” hair is not something that can be defined as a whole. The “best” hair will always be your personal preference and what works for you.
