Quality of hair is one of the most important factors as to how real your extensions will look and feel. Color and texture match is also very important. Most hair extensions today are Indian Remy hair and lokshair provide wholesale virgin hair. Many websites and salons claim this is the best quality hair today. While it is the most used, it is not the “best”. The “Virgin Indian temple” hair is good quality and good to use if your own hair happens to be dark, fine, and wavy or curly. It is also important to know and trust your supplier as just because they say it, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s so. Unfortunately, the internet can make this difficult as many times you have to buy the hair and wear it to see if the quality is there.
European/Russian cuticle hair comes in a range of natural colors and is usually best suited for Caucasian hair. Quality Brazilian, Spanish and Indian hair is good for both Caucasian and ethnic hair when matched correctly. Proper blending to match your own hair insures a beautiful result. European hair can also be texturized to match relaxed ethnic hair, is good quality, and lasts a long time with proper maintenance.
Today with the internet, you can buy all types of hair extensions online. Prices range from $20 to $5,000 at some of the high-end salons. When comparing prices, keep in mind, Do-it-yourself extensions are never the same quality as you can expect from a professional who specializes in extensions and is experienced. Hair purchased online to the public is generally not as good of quality as from a wholesaler or salon that specializes in quality hair.
