How To Tell If You Buying Fake Hair
Most frequent questions and answers
The cost of the hair can is a huge giveaway. If it is unrealistically cheap, even if they call it a special offer, be wary. If it is real human hair, the donor will not sell her hair cheap they will try and get the best price for there hair. This, however, does not mean that you go for overpriced hair. Shop around and get the average cost for 100% Virgin Human Hair.
Be Careful of the biggest marketing scam in the hair industry, Brazilian, Purvian, Philipino, Egyptian, Bohemian, Mongolian, and now Mink, This is the biggest scam in the hair industry hair names and country that don’t cut their hair for the hair industry this is Chinese hair industry the way they market to African American then the American company will sell you the same Chinese mixed, baked hair beware and spread the word.
If the hair has subtle changes of color and highlights, it is most likely natural. Real hair acquires color through exposure to natural light, which is quite difficult to achieve through artificial means. If a vendor asks you what natural color of hair you want, then that is a sign it is not real. Human Asian hair comes in the 1b natural color, which is either natural Ash black or brown.
Hair that has a perfectly uniform pattern more than likely is not virgin hair. Virgin hair is natural, unprocessed hair that grows out of an individual’s scalp. Most people do not have a perfect wave from root to tip and normally have irregular curls, waves or ringlets on their head. Sometimes even the texture can differ within the same bundle as a person can have their mother’s texture on the front of their head and their father’s texture at the back. So look out for some irregularity in textured hair.
Real human hair will tangle, but just a little. The longer the hair, the more likely it is to tangle especially at the back of the neck, but this should not worry you much. If the tangling is excessive it is mixed with synthetic that has been removed from shower, heat and excessive wear.
This is the one foolproof way of knowing for sure whether the hair is real or synthetic; Pull a couple of long strands of hair out and hold them above a flame – make sure you use a lighter or an unscented candle. If the hair singes and burns upwards while smelling like burnt hair – it is real. If it sort of melts into a ball and smells like burning plastic – it is fake.
However, it is not always possible to do this (for instance, when you’re in a salon or buying online)
