How do they collect Virgin Brazilian Hair?

Virgin Brazilian Hair is 100% unprocessed hair that is collected in one cut from a single donor. The hair is tied in a ponytail before the cut and a full head gives 3 bundles of hair. When the hair is cut, the raw hair products is kept strictly in its tie throughout the steps to its end customer. The hair is carefully cleaned, brushed and sometime steamed to achieve a certain texture.

The hair is collected from women in the South American region and the donor get paid for the hair donation. Sometimes hair suppliers use Mongolian hair since it has similar soft character. The hair is sold at hair auctions.


Virgin Brazilian Hair Characteristics

Since the hair has not gone through any chemical treatment, nor been colored, the Virgin Brazilian hair is 100% unprocessed and thereby has exceptional long durability. The term “virgin” indicated that the hair is untouched and is in its completely natural state, just like your own hair.

The Virgin Brazilian hair is kept in its natural direction from root to end securing that the cuticles (keratin shells on the hair) is facing in the same direction as your own hair. Since the cuticles are intact and facing in the right direction, the hair does not tangle.

As the virgin brazilian hair is cut directly from the donor the hair has natural end tips that blends perfectly in and looks very natural. When you do an install or create a wig with the virgin brazilian hair you should always use bundles in staggered lengths. As far as possible you would strive to keep the natural tip-end and not cut the hair more than necessary.

The hair feels very soft and silky, but still natural.

Longevity

Virgin Brazilian hair lasts many years if you treat it nice using mild shampoo and conditioner. It is the hair type that is most used for sew in installs because it can be re used.

Sew-In install needs to be adjusted every 8-12 week. The Virgin Brazilian hair is then re-installed.

Virgin Brazilian Color

The color of the virgin brazilian hair is the natural hair color from the donor. Therefore each bundle can vary slightly in color shade. Normally the color is 1B – OFF black, which is a black color with a brown shade. However the color could shade up to dark brow color 2 in the shades.

This is normally not a problem. Even though an install can use different color shades you can color the hair into any color you like. Many choose to color the hair after it is installed so that it blends perfectly with the clients own hair.

Lustre

Virgin Brazilian Hair lustre should be medium to low. You do not want the hair to be too shiny and fake looking, but the hair should look natural, just like your own hair.

Odore / Smell of Virgin Brazilian Hair

An important thing to check when buying Virgin Brazilian hair is the odore of the hair. The hair should not have any bad smell. If you are buying low quality hair you will notice a distinctive bad smell that unfortunately will not disappear even when you wash the hair.

Virgin Brazilian Weave

The Virgin Brazilian Hair is sewn or hand tied onto a track which becomes a weave.

Normally 2 or more weaves are attached together giving each bundle of hair a high hair density. It is possible to split this weave for use on sensitive and visual places of a sew-in or wig.

A good and strong weave, or weft as many call it, should not shed and at the same time be thin, soft and possible to fold. You should not need to use any weft sealer if you have a quality weft.

When brushing through a weft there could be some single strand natural shedding which it normal on any hair extension product. Always use a brush specially developed for extensions.

Weave and weft is the same thing, just two words of the the same terminology.

Virgin Brazilian Textures

Virgin Brazilian Hair comes in many textures. If the hair is unprocessed, how can they create these textures? The textures are created in a slow steam process using water only and no chemicals. The hair is tied onto rolls and then placed in a cold steamer. After several days of steaming, the hair folds into the various textures.
