How to Grade Hair Extensions

Currently, there is not a “Universal Standard” for human hair extension grading. There is not a standard hair grades chart that you can pull up and it be accurate.

Technically someone could call their hair extensions 8A despite being smelly, crappy, tangling, non-remy hair.

Here are some factors you should consider when shopping for virgin hair extensions:

  • Wefts: Single stitch or double stitch? Double stitch wefts should reduce shedding.

  • Weight: The standard weight of sew-in hair bundles are 100 grams or about 3.5 oz. Is the bundle cheaper because it weighs less?

  • 100% Human Hair: We only sell 100% human hair and think most of our clients prefer this. If you are looking for really cheap hair that will not last, color, or style then consider a synthetic blend.

  • Remy or Non-Remy: You want remy hair with the cuticles facing the same direction to reduce chances of tangling.

  • Single Donor or Multiple: Single Donor hair really only matters for a few types of hair including Indian Temple hair or possibly a unique gray hair. Is it necessary? 99.9% of the time we would say no. Some companies “claim” the hair bundle is from a single donor but I would not pay extra for it.

  • Single or Double Drawn: Most all human hair sold in the USA market is single drawn hair. The cost to produce a double drawn bundle is much higher because of the shackling process of removing the shorter hairs is much more expensive during the manufacturing process. Expect to pay more for a bundle of human hair that has long hairs all the way to the tips.

  • Color: Can you color the hair? The best quality virgin hair will lift all the way to a #613 Blonde. If you are not coloring the hair you might consider buying a less expensive option if available.

  • Styling: Human Hair extensions generally should not have an issue styling.

Indian Hair Extensions

The wavy & curly Indian hair textures are some of the most sought after in the industry.

What you should know:

  • The hair is 100% Human Hair

  • Double Stitch Wefts

  • Hair is “Remy” with cuticles facing the same direction

  • All bundles are 100 grams (standard)

The popularity of Indian hair has stayed consistent over the past ten years. 

Our Indian hair is 100% with no mixing of processed hair. You may find “cheap” Indian hair, but it will not match the quality of the bundles we provide our clients. It has been our goal to offer the best possible raw Indian hair that is available from India.
