Thinking Of Buying Virgin Hair?/ How To Detect Fake Hair!

Sorry guys! This is so long overdue but I'v had so many technology issues recently =[ But anyway..

Before I bought it myself, I was extremely wary of buying from just any hair vendor. Virgin hair is a hugeeeee investment and if you make the right one it can last you years, if not you've just wasted hard earned money =\ This post is basically just to help those who are thinking about it to make a wise choice. In no way am I a haircare professional, this is just what I've found from my own experiences and research. But anyway, lets go!

  • Watch Youtube Reviews. This can help you find a company to buy from and people's experiences with the hair. Obviously all hair is different and some companies send youtube 'gurus' hair, so, make your own judgements.
  • If you do find a company that interests you, see if you could contact them to send you a sample. If you can get hold of one, test it with water and add heat on it to see if it returns to its natural state.
  • Prices can always be a huge giveaway. If its cheaper than Remi, thats normally a clue. That's not to say you can never find bargains on virgin hair, just be wary that if it was real, the seller would try to get the best price for it. However, the same goes for when hair is clearly overpriced. It doesn't have to cost thousands to get a good weave ;)
  • Virgin hair should always wave/ curl up when wet, even straight hair should have some sort of wave. Always check your virgin hair can return to its natural state :)
  • We all know (well you should know lol) virgin hair is hair that has been cut off another humans head...=\ lol. So virgin hair should not smell like any beauty store hair(human/synthetic) If it does.. back away lool
  • Virgin hair is also known not to tangle. But it can, the reality of life is hair does tangle. My natural hair tangles! Lol but there shouldn't be excessive tangling. However, tangling is more likely to happen with longer lengths of hair and at the back of the neck so don't be too worried if it does happen.
  • As with tangling, shedding can happen but again should not be excessive! It should only be a few strands after a comb through. Try asking your vendor to seal the wefts or do it yourself to ensure the hair stays on. If you comb the weave from the tips to the roots with a wide tooth comb, this can reduce shedding too.
  • If any vendor asks "what colour hair do you want?"... Run away. Lol. Virgin hair shouldn't hv colours to choose from and should be in the natural colour which is normally black/ brown or a mix of both. If you do want another color you could always dye the hair but this would means its processed and no longer virgin.
  • The hair should also have a 'bounce' to it. If you watch any Indian/ Brazilian woman walk or move their head, the hair will have some motion. It shouldn't be stiff and should move in the wind when its sown in as this could mean its been processed.


Hopefully these tips do help those who are looking to buy hair. Again, i am not a pro but this is what I have found and hopefully this may help someone :)

  1. i'm currently looking to buy some virgin hair and it's so hard finding a good vendor. One one side some of them are very reputable but a tad bit overpriced! And on the other hand some vendors sell they hair so cheap that its quite obvious that their hair isn't virgin hair, but i'm always so tempted because of the price.
    Can you recommend a good vendor?

    1. Hi Anna,

      I just recently tried Perfect 10 Hair Company Malaysian Straight hair and I loved it! Their prices are great, compared with some other companies and it wore very well with time. After conditioning it, it was better than it was when I purchased it. I am planning to do a review of this hair on Youtube, so you can check that out in a few days.

    2. Try idzidolizedbyall.bigcartel. I purchased in November and my hair is like I brought it yesterday! The customer service is great! If you don't like the hair, you can return and get your money back! It's true about the hair being cheap! My first experience was horrible! Months later I tried the company above! I'm ecstatic! Every where I go someone stops me and says is that your hair? "no". Then they ask where did you get it from? and I tell them.

  2. Hello ladies Om a Virgin Brazilian Distributor in Atlanta GA. www.KILAGLAM.com
    When purchasing virgin hair make sure the follicle bulbs are visible if not the isn't 100% Virgin of that particular ethnicity. U can also tell from the texture, and from doin a heat strand test along with color test. Most hair that isn't Virgin if black color is places on the hair hole processing it will have a reddish color coming off, which is the undertone of black. Which also means that it is already probably processed! Any questions feel free to contact me!

  3. Hello! I just recently bought some "Virgin Malaysian" hair online. Today I washed and conditioned it and i assume hair dye started coming off of it. BUT it returned to its natural, body wave pattern. Does this mean it is not virgin?

    1. If it was a lot then its has been processed some what, but if its going back to its original state then you should be fine. Rule of thumb when you purchase virgin hair and want quality, go with Grade 4A or better. My first experience with virgin hair was "south american hair"... yea slapped myself later bc the experience was horrible and where do you find "south american hair"? Any who I'm not sure how your hair is holding up as of today but a company that I tried and Im extremely happy with bc i seen no shedding or tangling barely, the hair bleaches well, the ends are full and the hair is soft!

  5. Great article. I must say that I see a lot of complaints about Gurus on youtube receiving better hair than what the company sends the customer. Price tells the major story, and it seems like a lot of start ups are just reselling garbage hair from aliexpress.

  9. I have recently brought Brazilian Weave and I've been wearing it for about three weeks now. I treat it well with the right hair products and wrap it or curl it at night, however, it sheds and tangles really badly. Like whenever I comb my hair, loads and loads of hair sheds and comes out on the comb, like just by combing it my floor is filled with strands of hair. And it tangles a lot, especially the bottom rows. If I go out for a couple of hours, when I come home, my hair is very tangled. I use a wide teeth comb to comb out my hair and the tangles. Do you think it's fake or have any tips on how to help stop the shedding and tangling?

    1. Hey Roxanne,

      When you installed the hair did you cut the weft?

      This can also be a major problem that causes shedding. You should never it the weft or split it if you do not want it to shed a lot. You can also do the burn test I found this very effective, virgin hair should burn the same way your hair would burn. So I would say take a strand of your hair and of the virgin hair and burn them one by one and see how it burns and also smell it too. If if differs from the way your hair reacted to the test then I would doubt it is 100% virgin. You should also be able to see small strands of white hair this is another sign that the hair is good quality. If you are looking for more advice or tips about how to manage and maintain your hair visit www.noirvirginhair.com they are also doing a summer deal where you get £100 off your order using discount code summer2013.

      Hope this helps.

  11. Hello, Ladies,

    I'm Lorna, Sales manager/Import Specialist at www.Goddessweaves.com , I would like to say there are currently 2 region of hair on the market, Asian and Indian, of these two the only hairs with original textures are from India factories, Asian factories hair are all steamed for textures , which is why the Authentic Indian virgin hair cost much more than the Asian factory common hair seen about the web. Its the grade of the hair which makes the difference, Asian hair are virgin hair but again steamed for textures, No Peruvian, Brazilian, Malaysian woman grown perfect body waves, deep wave, kinky curls etc... I don't understand how so many actually believe that those textures have been grown from a real head, many give bad reviews if the curls do not come back after washing, but it was steam for those beautiful body waves, natural waves etc...so some of them does become very loose and may even be gone completely. I do my best to inform our clients so they do not expect the impossible and understand so long as the original hair is virgin they can boil the hair to add the texture back as they wish or curl it...

    The only hair with natural waves and curls are Indian and curl hair is not found so easy in Indian so they also steam their hair for curly textures, Indian hair you can use it for years and it will always revert back to its original pattern as it was grown on the Indian woman head,(That organic patterns) the straight is not complete straight it also have wave in it...That hair 10" cost $130+ Vs Asian factory 5A Grade cost only $75 average depending on the vender , if you want a vendor who keeps it 100% then give us a try! P.s (3A is also not a bad quality of hair, especially if your on a small budget it depend on the vendor your using, I have seen some 3A look and feel better than 4A and 5A, (3A is mainly processed hair, but there are also virgin hair in 3A, this hair have more thin ends, so plan on trimming 2" for best results, 4A virgin hair have more noticed short mix and greys but can be picked out and cost less ~ most 4A can not be bleached to very light colors, 5A however, can be bleach very light , fast and easy making coloring easy and less grey if any the hair is also softer than 4A, 6A is more soft and silky than 5A, our 7A are our virgin Indian temple hairs! Virgin hair does not mean perfect hair, it simply is a better investment for your human hair weaves/lace units, since it will last longer, looks better and feels amazing again depending on your vendor:)

    I'm Lorna can be reach at 301-244-9763 , we offer wholesale and retail as well as worldwide shipping (www.Goddessweaves.com, I'd be delighted to supply your next virgin hairs, if I wouldn't wear it I don't ship it!

  12. Hello,

    Ok, so I spent several months trying to find reasonable priced virgin hair. I watched youtube and did some research. I knew that I coulnt afford to a lot of money on hair. After watching some youtube videos I came across aleixpress. I purchased Malaysian body wave for an 107.00.Iguess you get what you pay for. When I received it, I was super excited and it was beautiful. I cowashed and the water in the sink was brown and it was coming from the hair and I was in shock and wasn't sure what I bought. I spent an hour washing and rinsing the hair out and I still don't think I have it all out. Im really sad, because I was excited about the virgin hair journey, but now I feel like I made a huge mistake. I don't know if its virgin or fake at this point and im willing to try again, but im just really nervous. I need help, can anyone explain what I may or may not have and where I can try some realy virgin hair at a reasonable price.

  16. I'm a YouTube natural hair vlogger and getting more and more into weaves. I am looking for the best quality hair and I find that for the most part I can't really trust the reviews on YouTube. It seems that every time a "Guru" or a person with lots of subscribers get hair they always say that the hair is great! I find that hard to believe. I have tried Beauty Store Hair, AliExpress, and XCSunny which was actually to my surprise the best hair I have gotten so far. I will def check out some of the sites listed here, but am weary....

  17. I have been looking all over the internet for some REAL virgin hair for a good price the sites I looked at the cheapest was $61-$67 for a 12" and I was wondering if that was a good price other websites I looked at had $100 or more for a 12'' so what are some good sites I can get some REAL virgin hair without spending $100 + on 12" or 14" virgin hair

  22. Remy human hair extensions are better than non-remy hair extensions because in remy hair you have the cuticle of the hair intact, whereas in non-remy hair the cuticle is stripped off the hair. Human hair extensions are better because they look natural. You can find cheap clip in hair extensions online as well. When you are buying your Brazilian virgin hair online, be sure that they allow you to return the product within a certain time if you are dissatisfied with it.
