Episode 122 : What Is Glue Tipped Hair?

*** We have decided to repost a article written by Allyson. Due to the similarities in explanation. The only difference is the type of glue adhesive used to tip the hair extension. ******

Episode 121: What Is Keratin Pre-Tipped Hair Extensions?

By Allyson

A glue tipped hair extension is a small bunch of human hair extensions (also be aware that synthetic hair is often used also) that is pre-dipped into glue adhesive to create a ‘tip’ at the top of the hair. The tip is usually 1/2″ to 1″ in length size, and the width size depends on the type of tip that has been formed. They come in various shapes similar to letters “I” “U” and “V” which is what the various names of the tipped hair extension is called. The tip that would be most ideal for you will depend on the method you choose to use to install the hair extensions.

Glue tipped hair is hair that has been dipped one time into a glue adhesive. This means there is not enough glue to bond the hair together with your own hair. If you try to only use the glue that is on the hair extension you will begin to notice shedding, due to not creating a secure bond surrounding the hair. You must have additional glue adhesive (either in a glue stick form or a pellet (typically used in fusion extensions) to complete the bonding process. You can also use the microbead technique. Pre-glued/pre-bonded hair is hair that has been dipped more than once to give the hair a thicker tip. With pre-glued hair you have enough glue to bond it and attach it to your hair (using a fusion heat wand).

Episode 118: What Is Remy Hair?

By Mariah

I am back! Mariah, I want to talk about Remy Remi hair. What it is, and why not everything that has the name is actually the real deal. Remy Human Hair is one of the highest grades of human hair extensions. Human hair is a preferred choice for hair extensions, hairpieces and wigs because it has the most realistic natural look. And the hair has a longer lifespan than that of synthetic and regular human hair that has been mixed.

Remy Hair is considered to be one of the finest qualities of human hair because the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped, like in most other non-Remy hair extensions. Preserving the hairs cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are provides a more natural looking appearance. This process ensures that the hair remains super soft, shiny, silky and completely tangle-free throughout its lifetime.

This is an accurate picture of how remy hair should look like. The shine and luster.

Remy Human Hair means the hair has been carefully sorted after collecting from the hair donor to ensure all the cuticles are the same length and facing the same direction. It is one of the best quality human hair extensions on the market because of the care that goes into making sure that all of the cuticles are aligned and facing the same direction. Aligning the cuticles is a time consuming process. Tremendous care has been taken to ensure that the life of the hair can be extended.

This is not real Remy Hair. This is a mixed cheap version of mixed fibers.

What is the difference between synthetic and human hair extensions? Remy Hair is made from human hair which can be color dyed, thermal styled (curled or straightened), styled, washed, and treated like your own natural hair. Hair extensions made from synthetic hair are sensitive to the sun, don’t last as long as human hair, are difficult to style (due to the not being able to curl or straighten or apply heat), and cannot blend in as well with your natural hair (due to silicone coating and heaviness of the fibers used). Expect to pay anywhere from $40-$150 for Synthetic hair extensions or wigs due to the short life span. Actual remy hair or human hair extensions will cost anywhere from $100-$2000 for human hair extensions or wigs.

Human hair extensions can seem like a costly investment but can last anywhere up to 5+ years if properly cared for by a professional. Compared to the unrealistic wiggy look you get with synthetic extensions.Which are meant for short term applications ( proms,weddings, special occasion events). We need to as women put a little more effort into what we use to achieve the level of beauty that is equal to that which is equal to what’s on the inside.

Episode 117: What Is European Hair Extensions?

By Mariah

I have had a lot of women ask me the question what is European hair or Russian hair extensions, and how is it better? And how does it compare to the hair we buy in the beauty supply stores. These two things are worlds apart from each other.

Let me first explain some key terms and a little geography lesson. European hair primary is derived from European countries such as Turkey, Uzbekistan, Eurasian and Ukrainian. These countries are great for harvesting hair that has natural blondes, reds, browns shades due to the genetics of the surrounding countries. This means that the hair does not need to be dyed to achieve a specific color. Which means the hair is healthier and will last longer. Now the hair can still be dyed, but the color does not have to go through such a drastic lifting process, which can lead to dying out the hair if the bleach is left on too long.

The hair that you are purchasing from your local beauty supply is usually not 100 % human hair. And to make sure you understand what you are buying just look and trust the feel. If the hair is too shiny or waxy looking you are more than likely looking at a mix of Toyokalan and a couple of dyed Chinese hair strands. But most of it is a man made fiber that usually only last 30-90 days and then it begins to look dry and brittle. It will start looking drastically different not blending with your natural hair. This hair is not made to last longer than 60 days because it is made to be cheap enough to be affordable, but a cheap enough quality to have you right back buying more. This type of hair is a revolving door of wasted time and money. Take a second and look at the money factor

Beauty Supply Hair

1. 1 package of Blonde 4 oz $112 X 2 = $224 X 4 (spent every 3 months) = Total $896

European Hair Extensions

2. European Human Hair (Grade 3A) 4 oz $299 X 2 (last for longer than 1 year if properly cared for by a licensed stylist) = Total $598 * additional 2-4 oz may need to be purchased to accommodate style changes. Including the additional purchase of 4 oz of hair which will give you a total of 12 oz = Total $897

Now that you see where your money is going let’s look at the quality factor. Human hair is just that hair that has been collected from a live donor so it feels, looks, moves just like real hair. If you ever have noticed that hair from the beauty supply does not move like human hair because the fibers are heavier than natural hair. This creates a flat hairstyle after a while. Yes, you can curl it but when you jump or move naturally does it move like your natural hair? Probably not, and this is a dead give away that is not your hair.
