All you need to know about Russian Hair and South American Hair.

Before I write any details about hair I want to ensure all of our clients that all of our hair is ethically source. This is not just a term that is “cool” to be used but it has a meaning. All the donors are happy to cut their hair as they get paid lot of money for it and it is a significant amount of money for them. None of our donors are forced into cutting hair.

There is a lot you need to understand about Russian/Slavic hair, it is in a different league to other hair that you can buy online. The term SLAVIC hair is same to RUSSIAN hair, we will explain more. Russia is part of other Slavic countries and most of the hair comes from west parts of Russia. However hair which comes from Ukraine, Slovakia, Czech Republic can also be called Russian hair as these are Slavic countries – it may be confusing 🙂

Genuine Russian/Slavic hair is rare and not cheap to get hold of. What is most readily available is Indian and what is called “European Hair”. Most of this hair is over-processed due to colouring, a lot of silicone is used on the hair so it looks shiny and healthy. Once this silicone is washed off you will end up with hair that tangles and is very difficult to even brush through. You often find this hair to be 80 percent synthetic or animal hair.

This is because the natural hair cuticles are often removed from the hair (it is put into an acid bath, therefore we can no longer call it REMY hair). This hair cannot last you more than 6 months as it is impossible to maintain. Remy hair is cuticle correct aligned hair.

Russian/Slavic Hair uses no silicone and all the cuticles stay intact so it will last for many years, rather than a few months. If it is looked after with appropriate care it will last you a lifetime.

We recently started to use South American hair as for any Afro wigs and Asian clients this is the best matching choice of hairl. We can can thicker hair which is more friendly for your finances, and also very thin South American in light and medium brown colours which is as rare as Russian/Slavic hair therefore very expensive. All of our South American hair is virgin, without any chemicals used and all cuticles alligned.

About double-drawn hair:

We usually comb out the shortest hair from the ponytail (between 4-12″ of the length) which can make the hair double-drawn to 60%. To make 100% double drawn hair would be very pricey but possible to do on request.

About Russian/Slavic virgin hair:

This is very rare and by far the most beautiful hair. It feels very soft as it is mainly cut from young donors. This hair is not processed in any way and it is very easy to spot the quality just by touching the hair. Most common virgin shades are dark and medium browns. We can also get dark blond colours but to get very light blond is very rare – however we do get hold of this hair time to time.

Our VIP coloured Slavic Russian Hair:

This is a very soft and shiny hair cut from one donor only. We can get straight or wavy hair. The hair texture is medium thin, soft and silky.

Our Russian coloured range of hair is the more affordable hair range we offer. The texture of this hair is thicker than unprocessed hair, but it is still very shiny and beautiful.
